Found February 12, 2012 on Red Hot Mama:
Spring Training will officially kick off this week, and pitcher Roy Oswalt still doesn’t have a job. ESPN’s Jayson Stark described the situation. “He wanted to go to Texas. … [visit site to read more]

Holliday, Cards ready to fill void left by Pujols

ST. LOUIS Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday doesn't plan on forfeiting the upcoming season just because three-time MVP Albert Pujols decided to leave for the Los Angeles Angels in the offseason. As the Cardinals look to defend their World Series Championship, Holliday knows he and the rest of the team will just have to do a little bit more to make up for the nine-time All...

Will Jake Westbrook Slide

The St. Louis Cardinals got Jake Westbrook at the 2010 trade deadline, and he performed well enough down the stretch to earn a 2-year contract with a mutual option on a third year.  Last season he did not perform like the 2010 stretch Westbrook, though to be fair he did pitch to his career averages.  What do we want to to see from Jake in 2012?  More 2010 Westbrook, and less 2011...

Et Tu, Molina? (Pars Duo)

A few years ago I wrote a cautionary piece foretelling the eventual departure of one Yadier Molina — SUPREME JEFFY MANCRUSH — if the Cardinals somehow didn’t resign Albert Pujols to a long, career stabilizing contract. I wrote it flippantly, thinking this will never happen in real life. And then real life hit. Albert Pujols is gone and Yadi doesn’t seem to be as in love with...

Fewer Cardinals spring training telecasts in 2012

Apparently, other television networks across the Major League Baseball landscape – whether regional or national – are not particularly interested in seeing the World Champion St. Louis Cardinals this spring. In spring training broadcast schedules posted at, only two of the Cardinals’ eight spring opponents will be televising even one Florida contest with St. Louis....

St. Louis Cardinals Set To Travel East Bound And Down To Florida

To paraphrase Smokey and the Bandit, the St. Louis Cardinals loaded up their truck Friday because they’ve got a run to make.  That trip will take the Cardinals to Jupiter, Fla., to begin Spring Training 2012 and kick off the six-week journey to Opening Day April 5 in Miami against the Marlins.  That means this is the last weekend without official St. Louis Cardinals baseball...

Ira is not just Mrs. Bill DeWitt III

Over on the main site,, I have been running a four-part series of articles for subscribers recapping remarks from the president of the St. Louis Cardinals, Bill DeWitt III, as they relate to various aspects of the team’s finances. It is not surprising that the son of the club’s principal owner and chairman totes a Harvard MBA in his educational kit bag....

Yadier Molina: He’s No Pujols

BREAKING NEWS: Yadier Molina is not Albert Pujols.  The catcher for the World Champion St. Louis Cardinals is entering the final year of his current contract, and, unless extended will become a free agent once the upcoming season ends.  And that’s about where the similarities between the redbirds’ catcher, and their former first baseman end. Molina, 29, has garnered some attention...

Matheny: Yadi is fine

JUPITER, Fla. -- Cardinals manager Mike Matheny knows well the significance that Gold Glove catcher Yadier Molina carries on his team. Matheny also knows the gravity that an unsettled contract situati

Departures won't minimize Cards' title defense

Transition may have defined the Cardinals' offseason, but it doesn't minimize the fact that the Cardinals will arrive at Spring Training eager to defend as World Series champions.

Philadelphia Phillies Storyline: Winners Or Losers?

The Philadelphia Phillies have 1 possible path to bring back Roy Oswalt, while Antonio Bastardo leads a slew of young guns into Camp Clearwater. The baseline from Triple-A to the majors is 50%, who will stick with the parent club and who will miss that last jump? There are 8–including Michael Stutes–and 4 each will fall on different sides of the centerfield fence. Tal's Handy...
