Analyzing Sam Tuivailala’s Debut

The Cardinals are no strangers to converting strong-armed position players to the mound when their bats can’t keep up with their arms. The most storied case, of course, is Jason Motte. Motte went from a 19th-round catcher with a cannon arm with a career .188 batting average to dominant closer who ended the 2011 World Series. David Carpenter is another former catcher from the Cardinals’...

Thinking About Jason Motte

Jason Motte.  What about Jason Motte? He was a late season revelation in 2011 that parlayed his opportunity into 42 saves in 2012. He's also the first winner of the Darryl Kile Award - given and voted on since 2004 by the Cardinals to an inspirational teammate - to not play a single inning in his award winning season.  By all accounts, this is a dude that you...

Motte remains focused on helping team win

ST. LOUIS - New Cardinals manager Mike Matheny has no problem doing what former skipper Tony La Russa refrained from. Yes, Jason Motte is indeed the closer. "Jason has certainly positioned himself as we head into Spring Training as the closer," Matheny said. Tell that to Motte and he'll joke back with, "Watch your mouth." The mini-controversy was a source...
