Outside the Boxscore:
Over the years, I've seen some pretty crazy plays made in Major League Baseball games but St. Louis Cardinals David Freese pulled off something I've never seen before.
New York Mets pitcher Dillon Gee was at the plate when he hit a sharp liner to Freese who was able to knock down the ball.

There it was, closure for...
Brutal. The Cardinals are absolutely brutal right now. Pitching? Awful. Defense? Rams-ish. Offense? Adron Chambers leads the team in RBIs for June. With one.Injuries have ravaged the Cardinals. Matt Holliday, David Freese, Yadier Molina and Carlos Beltran have all had extended time on the DL along with Adam Wainwright and Kyle Lohse on the pitching side. What was that? 6 players...
When Jaime Garcia was sent back to St. Louis to have his tender left elbow examined, he missed one start but passed muster medically to rejoin the club and make a start Tuesday night in Houston. But as manager Mike Matheny said after an aborted performance of two innings, "He isn't right." Minute Maid Park in Houston never has been terribly kind to Garcia, who before...

Late Monday afternoon, I joined Jim Brinson and Joe Quinn on KXnO FOX Sports Radio 1460 in Des Moines in a special installment of this year’s series to discuss the St. Louis Cardinals, “Cardinal Talk.” I reported from New York’s Citi Field after the Mets defeated the Cards in three of four games.

The Mets' were unable to capitalize on a fourth straight impressive outing from one of their starting pitchers, this time in Dillon Gee. They were however, able to make it interesting...
Hot News for SP Jaime Garcia
It was a random Sunday tweet from a Houston Astros follower, destined to be lost among the volumes of Twitter noise – except I couldn’t forget it.
“All Astros farm teams at .500 or better. Hasn’t happened in a long time.”
Player development is the main priority in all organizations, but playing winning baseball is important, too.
Of course, it would be ridiculous to declare...

What a weekend! The last 72 hours for Mets fans has been so surreal, I’m still wondering if it all really happened. The defending World Champion St. Louis Cardinals have been held to 1 run…ONE! all series so far, Johan pitched the first Mets no-hitter in history (still trying to process that one), and R.A. Dickey said “I’ll see your no-hitter and raise you another shut...
