Found May 15, 2012 on i70baseball:
The Springfield Cardinals have been down more than up this year and frustrations are not far behind. New manager Mike Shildt, who took over for Ron “Pop” Warner after Pop was promoted to Memphis to manage the Tripe-A Redbirds, took exception to a call in a game against the Northwest Arkansas Naturals on 5/11. An argument ensued and Shildt would not let it die for a good while. Unfortunately, before all was said and done, he flipped his helmet into the field of play. The bigger problem was that the umpire stood between him and the location he was flipping the helmet to. Very seldom does throwing equipment come out as a good idea.

Freese hoping to end slump

ST. LOUIS - David Freese arrived at Busch Stadium Tuesday thinking it would be the day he broke out of his slump. Then he looked at the lineup card and saw he had the afternoon off. So the third baseman, stuck in a 5-for-31 slump that dropped his batting average from .329 to .283, begged and pleaded with his manager to put him in the lineup. Mike Matheny finally caved, making a...

Cardinals recall Sanchez, release Romero

The St. Louis Cardinals have recalled right-handed reliever Eduardo Sanchez from Triple-A Memphis and released struggling lefty J.C. Romero. The 23-year-old Sanchez was 0-2 with a 6.08 ERA in 14 appearances in the minors but did not allow a run in his last five outings. He didn't give up any runs in seven spring training games, with 14 strikeouts in eight innings. The 34-year...

Beltran out third straight game with sore knee

St. Louis Cardinals slugger Carlos Beltran is missing his third straight start with a sore right knee, though he and manager Mike Matheny believe he will avoid a stint on the disabled list. Matheny says Beltran could have played in Wednesday night's series opener with the San Francisco Giants, but with the cool Bay Area weather it wasn't worth risking further problems. Beltran...

Kolten Wong and Robbie Erlin: Scouting the Unknown

Kolten Wong | 2B, Cardinals | Born:  10/10/1990 Tyler Greene was the 30th overall selection in the 2005 draft.  It was the Cardinals second pick that year; they took Colby Rasmus two spots earlier.  At this point, both players appear to be busts, really.  I suppose St. Louis fans can take solace knowing that the Cards flipped Rasmus for important pieces in their World Series...

Matheny institutes national anthem policy

ST. LOUIS - Cardinals manager Mike Matheny thought it was odd when he realized he hadn't seen any of his players walk by his office before the start of their game against the Atlanta Braves Friday night. Then he realized they had snuck out. Hoping to catch their skipper at his own game, players hurried out a back door and onto the field in time for the national anthem. Because...

Cardinals place Jay on DL with shoulder injury

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Center fielder Jon Jay was put on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday by the St. Louis Cardinals because of shoulder soreness. St. Louis played the finale of a five-game homestand with only one regular outfielder, left fielder Matt Holliday. Right fielder Carlos Beltran missed his second straight start due to a minor knee injury but was available to pinch hit. "...

Cardinals release LHP J.C. Romero

According to the Cardinals' official Twitter account, they have unconditionally released left handed pitcher J.C. Romero. Right handed pitcher Eduardo Sanchez has been re-activated and will be with the team tonight. Romero, 35, went 0-0 with a 10.13 ERA, 3.4 HR/9, 2.3 BB/9 and 5.6 SO/9 in 8.0 innings with the Cardinals this season. He has a career record of 34-28 with a 4.15...

Beltran’s Best Season?

One of my closest friends is a St. Louis native, and after the tumult of contract misadventures this past off season, he asked me how I thought the Cardinals might fare in 2012. My comment was that they’d win more games in 2012 than they did in 2011 — bank on it. But most of that was wrapped up in the notion that they’d get Adam Wainwright back to form, Lance Berkman would...

Google Search Without Comment

Sometimes we look for story ideas on Google News. Just type in ‘St. Louis Cardinals’ in the search box and endless amounts of stories pop up for us to plagiarize and then put up on our site as our own and take all the glory. But sometimes the stories are so apropos, there really just isn’t much to comment on.  I think this sums up a 1-4 home stand pretty succulently. Especially...

Cards prospect puts dream on hold

Mitch Harris had two dreams in life: serving his country and playing professional baseball. He just didn't realize that one might keep him from doing the other. Harris was a legitimate prospect coming out of the Naval Academy after posting a 2.51 ERA with 291 strikeouts in 222 13 innings during his four-year career. And the Cardinals took a chance, drafting him in the 13th round...

What’s with all the helmet throwing, anyway?

Whether in the major leagues or the minor leagues, angry uniformed personnel firing their protective headgear in the direction of the game’s arbiters is in the news this week. One such occurrence was in the Cardinals system. On Friday night, Springfield manager Mike Shildt sent his struggling Double-A club onto the field at Northwest Arkansas in an attempt to break a nine-game...

Buyer Beware: The Fantasy Baseball Trade Market

The Top 5 Players to Buy Low and to Sell High Sell High 1). Carlos Beltran STL OF 28 R 13 HR 32 RBI 5 SB .295 AVG Beltran’s power surge is completely out of line with the rest of his career. Add in his propensity to get injured and it all adds up to a player you’re better off sending away for a high reward. 2). Bryan LaHair CHC 1B 16 R 9 HR 20 RBI 1 SB .356 AVG Odds are a 29...
