Found July 11, 2013 on STLSportsMinute:
It was not a good night at the plate for the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday night. Facing former Cardinal Edwin Jackson, who was on the team’s 2011 World Series team, the offense never got going in a 3-0 loss to the Chicago Cubs. A frustrating night came to a head in the ninth inning after Matt Adams struck out looking. Adams seemed to question the strike call, which caused home plate umpire Dan Bellino to take off his mask to discuss the matter and eventually, the umpire “shooed” Adams away. Matheny didn’t say anything immediately, but after the game, let his thoughts be known on the matter and as a result, was actually ejected after the game had already ended. #cardinals dugout, Matheny irate over home plate umpire's handling of Adams strikeout in ninth. Matheny ejected as result. #cubs #stlcards — Derrick Goold (@dgoold) July 12, 2013 If this ejection actually counts, which is actually questionable considering the game had already ended, it would be the second ejection for ...

With Descalso knocking on SS door, Matheny clearly has Kozma's back

ST. LOUIS -- High on the list of Mike Matheny's assets as a manager is always having his players' backs. He is widely regarded as a player's manager and his players know he will protect them. What, exactly, this means is a little beyond me. It's not like I've seen Matheny serving as a bodyguard for the Cardinals. But I did come across a telling example this...

Matheny gets tossed after umpire's disrespectful call

Whether Matt Adams is a rookie or not, the Cardinals did not believe their big first baseman should have been shown up by home plate umpire Dan Belino after striking out in the ninth inning of the Cubs' 3-0 victory Thursday night. "That's wrong," manager Mike Matheny can be seen yelling at Belino, who had taken off his mask and shooed a frustrated Adams back to...

Who will replace Rob Johnson on Cardinals roster once Yadier Molina is healthy?

In a somewhat surprising move, but one that was long overdue, the Cardinals release Ty Wigginton and called up catcher Rob Johnson from AAA Memphis.  Johnson is needed as Yadier Molina is banged up and the Cards need an extra catcher for insurance. However, this is only a temporary assignment for Johnson, as once Molina is healthy, its likely that Johnson will be sent back to AAA...

The latest Cubs rumors

​Coming off of a four game winning streak, rumors are beginning to take shape for the Cubs. Matt Garza, who is one of the top pitchers expected to be traded away before the end of the month, has been joined on the trading block by relief pitcher Kevin Gregg and outfielder Alfonso Soriano. Gregg and Soriano, both experienced veterans, have impressed many GMs around the league, especially...

Charting Chris Carpenter’s comeback

The comeback of St. Louis Cardinals right-handed pitcher Chris Carpenter is ready to ramp up. The 38-year-old will make his first minor-league rehab appearance on Monday, July 15 at Double-A Springfield, where he is scheduled to throw about 60 pitches. Carp was pronounced ready to go after throwing a three-inning simulated game at Busch Stadium on Wednesday afternoon. Carpenter...

Weird And/Or Drunk Cubs Fan Bites Lady During Game

This strange moment was captured by cameras during last night’s Cubs-Cardinals game. It shows one Cubs fan leaning over and biting the shoulder of another, a woman who is talking to a Cardinals fan. I’m going to go ahead and assume these two Cubs fans know each other (god, I hope so) and that the guy was either a little too drunk, a little too jealous, or just didn’t want the...

Cardinals' Holliday comes off DL

Cardinals left fielder Matt Holliday has been activated from the 15-day disabled list and is starting against the Braves on Saturday. Holliday had been out since July 12 with a strained right hamstring. With Holliday's return, Allen Craig is starting at first base. Craig played left field with Matt Adams at first base during Holliday's absence. Adams is not starting on...

The Cubs Hot Streak Comes to an Abrupt End

The Chicago Cubs and their hitters were coming off a fourth win in a row and the first sweep of the season series with the hated White Sox since 1998. Alfonso Soriano led the Cubs hitters during their hot streak, hitting an impressive .346 with 5 home runs in just the last seven games. After belting numerous homers against the White Sox and Angels, the Cubs were given a taste of...

Cardinals' Holliday leaves game with leg injury

St. Louis Cardinals left fielder Matt Holliday has left Thursday's game against the Chicago Cubs because of tightness in his right hamstring. Holliday clutched his hamstring when he was halfway to first base on a grounder to shortstop in the fourth inning and walked gingerly off the field after being tended to by a trainer. He did not take the field in the bottom half. Allen...

Chicago Cubs Release RHP Shawn Camp

To no ones surprise, despite the chance to keep right-handed reliever Shawn Camp in the Chicago Cubs organization, the club decided that it was best to part ways after a very disappointing 7.04 earned run average over 23 innings this season. With pitching at a premium, Camp should have no issues finding someone to take a spot up in their organization. The post Chicago Cubs Release...

Cardinals Minors Reap: Tim Cooney and Chris Perry shine in starts

The Baby Birds went 3-4 on Friday as Memphis, Springfield, and Johnson City (game 2) won, while Palm Beach, Peoria, Johnson City (game 2), and the GCL Cards lost. In the upper minors, Tyler Lyons had another wonderful start for Memphis as he allowed 2 runs in 5 2/3 innings and the majority of the trouble was in the last inning. Tommy Pham is starting to find his zone at Memphis and...

Thursday Funnies: No way to sugarcoat it.

One of the reasons I like Jeff Samardzija and this whole new Cubs regime is... they generally don't beat around the bush.Call it "transparency".Being blunt.I mean, sure - what else is Samardzija gonna say?It wasn't the ump or anything.Still, getting up in front of all those reporters and saying what's in the gif is the right way to do this stuff.Now, lets hope...

Halos Big Bats Explode To Beat Samardzija’s Cubs By: Gio Gaxiola (MC_PorkRhymez)

 It was interlague play for the Angels on Wedensday. With a trip to Chicago to take on the Cubs. Boy, did the Angels line-up feel right at home. After dropping yesterday’s game, the Angels had to pick up a win. The bats clicked all day on Wedensday. It started in the first inning. Mike Trout hit a ball right over third basemen Cody Ransom for his 29th double of the year. Scoreing...

Moving In The Right Direction … Aren’t We?

Before I start, let me point out that I’m sitting in my room listening to Pat Hughes call the Angels’ shellacking of our beloved Boys in Blue. But I’m still an eternal optimist, and if I need to look at current trends to feed that optimism, then so be it. Last year at the All-Star break, the Cubs were 33-52. Barring a dozen runs in the next 2 innings tonight, they’ll be 40...
