The St. Louis Cardinals entered the offseason with a shopping list that includes a shortstop and a left-handed relief pitcher. Unfortunately, those are currently two of the most talent-thin positions in Major League Baseball.
The Cardinals’ regular shortstop for the 2012 season, Rafael Furcal, hit .264 and had an on-base percentage of .325 in 121 games before he tore an elbow ligament that ended his season. Those certainly aren’t terrific numbers, but he ranked 11th in baseball in batting average and eighth in on-base percentage. He also played his typically solid defense throughout the season.
Furcal expects to be healthy by Opening Day, so the Cardinals will have to either be satisfied with his production, take a chance that late-season star Pete Kozma will continue his remarkable play or try and find an upgrade elsewhere.
Various rumors say the Cardinals are interested in Cleveland Indians’ shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera, who ranked eighth in batting average and fifth in on-base per...

NASHVILLE, Tenn. Cardinals utility man Skip Schumaker has informed the club that he would welcome a trade if they don't envision giving him more regular playing time next season.

So all those billion dollar TV deals you’ve been hearing about in baseball the past year? Like with the Dodgers, Yankees and Angels?
Well the Cardinals don’t have one of those.
Worse, the Cardinals just re-upped a couple of seasons ago with Fox Sports Midwest right before the TV rights deals started exploding and are now in the midst of a long term deal that will...

Garcia was then removed from the roster after...

St. Louis Cardinals second baseman and outfielder Skip Schumaker has been a fan favorite at Busch Stadium for several years.
Cardinals fans have historically adored spunky players who play the game of baseball with determination and grit. Schumaker fits that profile perfectly.
