Cards prospect Miller not shy on expectations

ST. LOUIS - Confident that this will be the year he reaches the big leagues, Cardinals prospect Shelby Miller took time on the recent Cardinals Caravan to ask David Freese and Jaime Garcia an important question. When I do get to the big leagues, what do I wear? Miller recalled. Because I dont want to look like a fool when I go in there, like wearing flip flops and all the big league...

Roy Oswalt and Market Determination Revisited

Yesterday in this space, this author wrote that Roy Oswalt had earned the right to limit his market choices and to stick to his price in negotiations as a free agent. The piece was a counterpoint to another writer who stated that Oswalt "had too big a head" and can move along from the St. Louis Cardinals' feeding trough. The point was also made that Oswalt is well worth...

Red Schoendienst celebrates his 89th birthday

Hall of Famer Red Schoendienst has done it all for the St. Louis Cardinals – All-Star player, World Champion manager and now sage adviser to the scores who followed. Making his St. Louis debut in 1945, the switch-hitting second baseman played 15 seasons with the Cardinals, including in the 1946 World Series.

Infield Depth Is A Big Question Mark For The Cardinals Heading Into Spring Training

Much like last season, the St. Louis Cardinals will enter spring training with a little bit of uncertainty, but for the most part the team should feel comfortable and confident. The Cardinals are, after all, the World Series champions. They currently have seven viable options for the starting rotation (if you include Kyle McClellan and Marc Rzepczynski) and could still land Roy Oswalt...

Pirates sign Brian Tallet

The Bucs signed veteran lefty Brian Tallet today. The 34 year-old has suffered through injuries and a couple of poor seasons recently, so I would assume that it’s a minor league deal. Tallet has been reasonably effective against lefties, so he’ll probably join Daniel Moskos and Doug Slaten in the group that will be fighting for a second lefty bullpen slot behind Tony Watson...

Phillies Still Remain In Contact With Roy Oswalt

According to Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports, the Red Sox, Reds, and Phillies all remain in the running for Roy Oswalt. Oswalt is scrambling to find a new home with only two weeks before the start of spring workouts. Oswalt's top choices are the Rangers and the Cardinals, but both have financial limitations. Oswalt had a positive experience in Philadelphia, where he went 16-11...

Pirates Sign Brian Tallet

The Pittsburgh Pirates have signed left handed pitcher Brian Tallet, according to Kevin Goldstein of Baseball Prospectus. No word on whether the deal is a major league deal or a minor league deal. Tallet has a career 4.79 ERA in 460 major league innings, pitching for three teams. Last year he split time between St. Louis and Toronto, but had poor results with a 9.45 ERA in 13.1 innings...

Nats Sign Another Solid Starter

Edwin Jackson to the Nats it is, according to Jon Heyman, and it sounds like he’s getting a one-year deal. Didn’t see that one coming. For those unfamiliar with Jackson, he’s a solid starter who averaged about 200 innings and a 4.00 ERA over the past four seasons with the Rays, Tigers, Diamondbacks, White Sox and Cardinals. He’s 28 years old and strikes out about seven batters...
