Wacha and Martinez: A pair of Cardinals blessings

Stop for a minute, Cardinals fans. Stop just to take everything in. The St. Louis Cardinals are an MLB-best 56-33, four more wins than any other team.

It’s the third straight year the AL has won the All-Star Game. I was going to write something different if the National League won and how much that could have benefited the Cardinals going...

Carlos Martinez Found His Pitch

Carlos Martinez is a starting pitcher now. He’s not some guy who throws 75 pitches and four innings a game. This year he’s often exceeded triple digits, and he’s one of the big reasons why the St. Louis Cardinals are where they are despite the loss of some important players.
