When the news that veteran reliever Scott Linebrink would have to head to the disabled list just two days into the season with a muscle injury, many St. Louis Cardinals fans immediately felt that young flame thrower Eduardo Sanchez would be pulled up from Memphis to fill the void.
Sanchez is electric. Sanchez is filthy. Sanchez is the future.
But rather than call-up Sanchez, the Cardinals have chosen to call-up 31 year old reliever Victor Marte instead.
So why not bring up Sanchez? Why not strengthen the back-end of the bullpen that is missing Lance Lynn, who was relocated to the starting rotation, with an over-powering talent like Sanchez?
It is not as though Marte does not d...

I think the assumption around baseball was if Albert Pujols left the Cardinals, he would leave a husk of a team behind him. If his teammates didn’t prove their worth enough throughout their playoff run in 2011, they’ll get ample chance to do so in 2012. They should be up to the challenge, as this roster was especially well...

So far, the St. Louis Cardinals are making it look easy in 2012. And while no one would say anything in 2011 was easy—maybe when they put Game 7 of the World Series out of reach…maybe—the Cards are playing a lot like they did at the end of last season.
And that’s no small feat, for a couple of reasons. Mike Matheny and his revamped coaching staff may not have been tested...
