Two prominent St. Louis Cardinals figures from the first half of the 20th century are back on the National Baseball Hall of Fame ballot. Owner Sam Breadon and shortstop Marty Marion are among 10 candidates under consideration by the Hall’s pre-integration era committee.
The group of former players, executives, reporters and historians is charged with evaluating those who made their...
The St. Louis Cardinals' influx of power arms, both at the big-league level and in the minors, is a switch from recent years, or perhaps in a very long time. Even with right-hander Kyle Lohse likely to sign elsewhere as a free agent, the Cardinals will have five veteran starters returning: right-handers Chris Carpenter, Adam Wainwright, Jake Westbrook and Lance Lynn, plus left...
The Cardinals made free agent starter Kyle Lohse a qualifying offer by Friday's deadline, mostly done as a requirement to receive an extra draft pick should he sign elsewhere.
General manager John Mozeliak recently said it would be unlikely the club would resign Lohse given what he will likely command in the free agent market this winter. But by making him the one-year, 13.3...
In an effort to clear room on their 40 man roster, the St. Louis Cardinals have outrighted three players to Triple-A Memphis, clearing three roster spots as free agency and the Rule 5 Draft approach.
Catchers Bryan Anderson and Steven Hill along with right-handed reliever Adam Reifer were the three players affected by the move.
The move clears roster space for general manager...
ST. LOUIS - The Cardinals need to pony up and pay Adam Wainwright. Soon.
The club made the right decision to let Albert Pujols leave. They also made the right choice by locking up Gold Glove catcher Yadier Molina. Now its Wainwrights turn, and the Cardinals need to do whatever it takes to bring him back as well.
Wainwright has one year remaining on his current contract and is set...
So I'm trolling around some St. Louis Cards news on the Internet when I come across an article on SB Nation about Lance Berkman possibly heading back to the Houston Astros.
Houston? Those dirty dogs? I mean, I thought Berks got a taste of the filet and wouldn't want round steak anymore. But to each their own.
The article went on to explain that the talks...
Despite losing the Albert Pujols last winter, the Cardinals won 88 games, the wild card playoff against the Braves, their Division Series against the best regular season team in the National League, and had a 3-1 lead on the Giants in the ALCS before the Giants caught fire and obliterated them and the Tigers on their way to the championship. All of that is to say that the Cardinals...
MAC ON THE MOVE
Mark McGwire may be leaving the Cardinals for the Dodgers. He's been the hitting coach for St. Louis the past two seasons, but he might want to move.
Read the main article at TheCardinalNation.com about the possibility of Rick Ankiel returning to pitching and his long history as both a pitcher and outfielder.
Then, vote here as to what you think Ankiel should do if he decides to take the mound again and how the Cardinals should react.

Big Make has, once again, left the yard.
After refusing the Cardinals contract tender, Mark McGwire is headed to Los Angeles to join the Dodgers as their hitting coach.
This will be the first time since 1997 that McGwire will wear another uniform other than the Cardinals.
Ok, ok. From 2002 through 2009, McGwire didn't technically wear any uniform...
Hot News for OF Lance Berkman
One year ago, Cardinal Nation tasted the very definition of bittersweet as the team reveled in its 11th—and inarguably most dramatic and improbable—World Series Championship while also saying goodbye to Tony La Russa and Dave Duncan, the outgoing brain trust of so much on-the-field success over a decade and a half in St. Louis. Their departure set in motion a transfer of eras...
Hot News for SP Kyle Lohse
Mark McGwire will no longer serve as the St. Louis Cardinals hitting coach, as he will leave the team after three seasons to accept a similar position with the Los Angeles Dodgers, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
McGwire’s deal to go to Los Angeles hasn’t been made a official yet, but it will be finalized soon. McGwire was offered a contract extension with the Cardinals...
Ernie Hayes passed away earlier this week at the age of 77.
If you went to a Cardinals game in Busch Stadium from 1971 to 2010, you've heard Ernie. He was the organist for the Cardinals (one of the few left in MLB stadiums when he retired) and was proud of his work, including making "Here Come The King" a staple during the 8th inning in St. Louis.
