Cardinals press release:

St. Louis Cardinals
To keep with tradition, I will start my 2012 MLB team by team previews with the defending 2011 World Series Champions, the St. Louis Cardinals.
The 2012 Cardinals will look a lot different from last year’s team, as the two biggest faces of the franchise are no longer there.
The Cardinals won the World Series without ace Adam Wainwright who got hurt...
As was first posted here at The Cardinal Nation Blog back on February 5, the St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame Museum has partnered with the The William J. Clinton Presidential Library and Museum on a new exhibit called “Play Ball! The St. Louis Cardinals.”
The opening ceremony for the display of Cardinals artifacts was held Friday night at the Little Rock, Arkansas facility...
JUPITER, Fla. While most of his friends and teammates were partying and celebrating a World Series title that he played a small part in helping them win, Mark Hamilton spent his winter roaming the outfields of Latin America.
Hamilton has been almost exclusively a first baseman since the Cardinals made him a second round supplemental pick out of Tulane University in 2006.
Now to do some jumping around MLB spring training camps with some of the diamonds in the rough. Names you don’t know now, but might soon will.
R. J. Swindle, St. Louis—Now 28 with a wife and daughter and only nine games in the major leagues so far, the lefty relief specialist was beginning to think about a future outside of baseball after being released by Tampa...
SIGNED ON THE DOTTED LINE
When Yadier Molina, a very good catcher, but far from a star-level player outside of St. Louis, recently became a $15 million dollar player (starting in 2013), there were more than a few people asking the question: Why? In fact, 64 percent of those who voted on our poll this past week thought the deal was “insanity” and 35 percent thought that Molina was a nice player, but that...
For as long as there have been people watching sports, there have been people vehemently arguing the sports they are watching. That's part of the fan experience. And just because you start writing about what you are watching, that doesn't mean you stop arguing. The key, of course, is to argue without turning such differing opinions into personal attacks. Twitter has become...
5 years. 75 million.
That’s the new contract that the Cardinals and Yadier Molina agreed to and announced yesterday. The quibbling has been kept to a minimum. Some think it’s a bit too much, but rationalize the salary bump as recompense for years of underpayment. Some think it’s a great value and would have paid more to keep him as the backstop for the next half decade...
JUPITER, Fla. (AP) It's steady as she goes for Allen Craig, the on-the-mend postseason hero for the St. Louis Cardinals.
Screws hold together his surgically repaired right kneecap following offseason surgery for an injury that sidelined him for two months in the middle of the season. He hit the field earlier this week, a nice milestone in his rehab.
There's no timetable...
Albert Pujols shows up early and stays late, pushing himself to get everything out of his workday with the Anaheim Angels.
''This is my job,'' Pujols said Friday. ''You have to take your job seriously.''
He makes it look easy in part because he works so hard.
''He's showing not only that he's a great talent, but why he's so good...
Head shots of 28 St. Louis Cardinals position players, four coaches plus a bonus from the team’s annual photo day.
In the most contradictory thing that's ever happened in Cardinal history, it's been revealed that Lou Brock did not watch Game 7 of the 2011 World Series because Lou Brock was attending an opening of a St. Louis Cardinals exhibit. I repeat. LOU BROCK, an all-time St. Louis Cardinals great was in Arkansas for a grand opening of a St. Louis Cardinals exhibit and couldn'...
Head shots of 30 St. Louis Cardinals hurlers and five coaches from the team’s annual photo day.
In an offseason market which featured an all-time great (Albert Pujols) and another over-hyped Japanese posting process (Yu Darvish), perhaps the most intriguing and mysterious character was Cuban outfielder Yoenis Cespedes.
After making a name for himself at the 2009 World Baseball Classic, he mostly disappeared for a couple of years before landing where everyone goes to get famous...
