The Major League Baseball non-waiver trade deadline is still a couple of months away, but the St. Louis Cardinals have to be contemplating the direction this 2012 season will take. And the way things have gone so far, it may not be an easy decision.
It is fair to say there is no way the Cardinals will be sellers, even with the absurd rash of injuries they have endured. A team that sells is a team that has no hope to make it to the postseason and a few expensive, desirable players that are nearing the end of a contract. This does not describe the Cards in any way. While they may have a handful of big contracts due to come off the books at the end of this season, it does not appear like they are contracts the team would be able to move without eating significant money and obtaining an upgrade at the same time. Plus, the Cardinals are still in second place in a weak division—far from out of it.
The Chicago Cubs are already 10 games out of first and are well under .500 after a lengthy ...

Carlos Beltran says sometimes he misses New York. And sometimes he doesn't.
The St. Louis Cardinals slugger returned to Citi Field on Friday for the first time since he was traded by the New York Mets last summer, concluding a rocky tenure in the Big Apple that included several outstanding seasons and one momentous strikeout.
He says he enjoyed his 6 1/2 seasons with the Mets...
As part of the Nolan Ryan takeover in Texas, Chuck Greenberg was pushed out as Rangers CEO in March 2011. The Pittsburgh native has since been rumored to be interested in buying the Pirates, but owner Bob Nutting reportedly does not have his team on the market.
One club Greenberg does own is the State College Spikes of the New York-Penn League. St. Louis Cardinals fans may be familiar...
Three more roster moves were made by the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday. All were expected. Skip Schumaker replaces Allen Craig on the disabled list while Sam Freeman is up from Memphis.
As the Mets prepare to start a weekend set against the St. Louis Cardinals, all eyes will be on the return of Carlos Beltran, who comes into Citi Field with a blistering 15 homers to start the season.
The Mets plan to welcome Beltran with open arms, as a video package will air to honor the former Mets’ center fielder. Never in question was the reaction he’d get from the team...

Carlos Beltran was honest: Sometimes he misses New York - and sometimes he doesn't.
His return to the Big Apple turned into quite a night.
Beltran and the St. Louis Cardinals were no-hit by Johan Santana in an 8-0 loss to the New York Mets on Friday. It was the first no-hitter in the 51-year history of the Mets, and Beltran was involved in a disputed play that should have broken...
The Mets will host the Cardinals tonight and Carlos Beltran returns for the first time as a Card. The guy who was a professional during his time with the Mets is raking with the Cards as he has more home runs then Wright and Davis Combined.!

(AP) -- Carlos Beltran spent nearly seven years as one of the New York Mets' most feared hitters. He also spent ample time on the disabled list.
So far, he's been healthy enough to make a major impact with the St. Louis Cardinals.
Beltran looks to continue his hot hitting as he makes his return to the Big Apple on Friday night in the opener of this four-game series.
St. Louis Cardinals weekly chat on KXnO FOX Sports Radio 1460 in Des Moines.
Late Friday afternoon, I joined Ken Miller and Jim Brinson on KXnO FOX Sports Radio 1460 in Des Moines in another installment of this year’s series to discuss the St. Louis Cardinals, “Cardinal Talk.” I am reporting from New York’s Citi Field as the Mets entertain the Cards for four games.
It was definitely expected to be a different kind of year for the St. Louis Cardinals. But go figure, the Mets have a one-game advantage on them in the National League at this juncture of the 2012 season.
At 28-23, the Mets have the fifth best record in the National League at this moment, meaning that if the season were to end today, they would wiggle their way into the playoff picture...
The Cardinals thought they actually got a hit against New York Mets left-hander Johan Santana Friday night, but they weren't really whining about the foul ball call made by third base umpire Adrian Johnson in the sixth inning when center fielder Carlos Beltran's liner down the third-base line appeared to kick up chalk. "I thought the ball was fair," said Beltran...
The New York Mets finally got their first no-hitter in team history, and the St. Louis Cardinals were unlucky enough to be the opposing team.
The city’s newspaper covered it with the grace and style you would expect from the city of the self-proclaimed “Best fans in baseball.” Just kidding. They whined and added an asterisk to the headline for Johan Santana’s historic achievement...
Take a look at the headline above. This was the back page of Saturday’s edition of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. See anything intersting? See it twice?
Apparently, the writers and/or editorial staff of the newspaper don’t think Johan Santana earned his no-hitter, the first thrown by a Met in 8,020 regular season games. They claim the blown call by third base umpire Adrian...
