Obviously, Thursday night was a painful one for St. Louis Cardinals fans, but it was even more painful for the goat of the night, Mitchell Boggs. At this point, you know that Mitchell Boggs was asked to pitch the treacherous ninth inning by skipper Mike Matheny. At this point you know that he allowed a game-tying bomb off the bat of Jeff Francouer. At this point you know that he left the mound after walking the next hitting to a chorus of boos. At this point, you know he has been demoted to Triple-A Memphis for the second time this season. So what does the future look like for Mitchell Boggs? The guys from The Cruddy Show broke it down on Friday night, even with the nasty weather rolling through St. Louis. Corey Rudd (@CoreyRudd), Anthony Wiber (@AWibes) and Brad Bumpus (@bbump18) discussed the future of Boggs in a Cardinals uniform, whether he even will be able to recover mentally from here and what the Cardinals need to do to shore up the bullpen.

Matheny to manage first double-header

In his rookie 2012 season, St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny checked off pretty much every “first” box on his managerial action list.

MLB Young Guns: Michael Wacha

Player: Michael Wacha Bio: Another prospect, another Cardinal. That is not the only similarity between Shelby Miller and Wacha, as they both hail from Texas.

Cardinals' offense makes most of final outs

ST. LOUIS -- It looked like Matt Cain might escape. After the Cardinals scored twice on the Giants ace in the bottom of the third inning, he stepped from the mound to chat with a coach, regained his composure, then went after Matt Holliday. When the three-time All-Star threw a four-seam fastball that struck Holliday out looking, it appeared Cain had poured cold water on the Cardinals...
