Cardinals second base battle to continue into the season

According to Derrick Goold, the Cardinals second base battle will continue into the regular season, with "performance and need dictating the starter." What does this all mean? Well, it means that what once started as an experiment to find another way to get Matt Carpenter's bat into the lineup and make him into a super utility player is quickly becoming a potential...

5-year deal good for Craig, Cardinals; no impact on Adams

As soon as the St. Louis Cardinals announced their signing of Allen Craig to a five-year contract with a sixth-year option, some assumed that pushed Matt Adams’ time as a Cardinal to its end. The reality is that while the $31 million deal is good for Craig and good for the Cardinals, it has no impact on Adams’ constricted major league opportunity at all. Here is why. Even before...

Rosenthal returns to bullpen with no complaints

JUPITER, Fla. If Trevor Rosenthal has any lingering disappointment from not being picked as the fifth starter, he's doing a darn good job of hiding it so far. Making his first relief appearance since being told he would open the season in the bullpen and not in the starting rotation like he had hoped, the 22-year-old flame thrower reached 100 MPH on four different pitches Sunday...

What Allen Craig’s new deal really means

The St. Louis Cardinals completed an agreement to keep first baseman Allen Craig in tow last week, but very well may have done much more than just that. The deal is a study in the obscure: both completely team and player friendly contract that helps both parties roughly equally. But to understand this, a grasp on the first base market, the financial position of the Cardinals and...

Potential reserves for the Cardinals reserves

A recent comment by blingboy led me to ponder the question that led to this post – Who might the reserves behind the St. Louis Cardinals reserves be? Of course, we have to begin with those projected to make up the season-opening five-man bench. My current thinking: Catcher – Tony Cruz Corner infield – Ty Wigginton Middle infield – Daniel Descalso Outfield – Shane Robinson...

St. Louis Cardinals can’t go wrong with fifth-starter decision

The St. Louis Cardinals have used three weeks of spring training to find their likely middle infielders for the upcoming season, but one big decision remains as to who will take the fifth spot in the starting rotation. Fortunately, the Cardinals should be in good shape regardless of who they choose. Three contestants began the battle for the final starting spot at the beginning...
