JOHN MOZELIAK RUMORS

Kapler: Cardinals ‘should go after David Price’

Two key losses for the St. Louis Cardinals in July opened the door for two specific moves to happen before the July 31 trade deadline. First was replacing catcher Yadier Molina , who will be sidelined until at least September with a sprained thumb. General Manager John Mozeliak filled that void by signing veteran free agent A.J. Pierzynski before [...]

Will a Devalued Taveras Follow Rasmus’ Path Out of Town?

I don’t think there is any doubt that Oscar Taveras is the St. Louis Cardinals’ most celebrated position prospect since Colby Rasmus. I have to admit that I am holding a fear that would connect the two outfielders in another way. I wonder if Cardinals manager Mike Matheny’s curious disuse of Taveras could be the prelude of a repeat of one of what I consider to be the most...

Cardinals GM John Mozeliak on Jaime Garcia: “I’m frustrated … you try to be patient with people”

Cardinals southpaw Jaime Garcia has made just 16 starts since the beginning of the 2013 campaign and is scheduled to have season-ending surgery on his shoulder this week for thoracic outlet syndrome. Those facts alone would be ample reason for John Mozeliak and the Cardinals to feel disappointed, but it sounds like a lack of communication from the 27-year-old left-hander is what’s...

To trade or not to trade, that is the question

  Cardinals General Manager John Mozeliak speaks to bloggers on June 22 at the annual United Cardinal Bloggers Event. (By Cole Claybourn) July can be one of the most exciting months in the baseball calendar. It can also be one of the most stressful as a fan. It’s officially trade season, and whether your team truly needs to make a deal or not, there’s bound to be fans clamoring...

When Did John Mozeliak Sign Murphy?

Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.  It seems to be an aphorism that is following the St. Louis Cardinals around these days. That’s a bit extreme–knock on wood, there’s been no major injuries or other dramatic things–but when you get between the white lines, it seems to apply.  If it’s not one thing, it’s another.  If it’s not that, something else breaks.  A...

Mozeliak on Cardinals' 20-20 start: 'This is not acceptable baseball'

ST. LOUIS -- The Mariners have to be practically giddy to reach this point in the season and be two games over .500. The Marlins and Mets, likewise, should be encouraged to be even .500. Heck, the Twins will gladly take 18-19 after all their recent losing seasons. But not all mediocre records are viewed the same. For the Cardinals, a 20-20 start has been like beginning that long...

Cardinals sign GM Mozeliak to two-year extension

ST. LOUIS -- It seems to be working. John Mozeliak keeps finding and signing good players, and the St. Louis Cardinals keep winning. So it was no surprise Saturday when the Cardinals announced that Mozeliak, the club's senior vice president and general manager, has agreed to a two-year contract extension with the team through the 2018 season. "Over the last six seasons,...

An exclusive interview with St. Louis Cardinals General Manager John Mozeliak

When I started this blog, almost exactly a year ago, I didn’t know what to expect. My goal was to write nightly farm reports and occasionally a story here and there. My expectations have been exceeded, from getting daily Spring Training e-mails from then Farm Director John Vuch with spring stats, to interviewing Vuch, to now interviewing the man at the top, John Mozeliak. With...

Are the Reds and Cardinals heading in opposite directions?

St. Louis Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak has received considerable praise in recent months. After all, he leads a very successful franchise that includes a top-rated farm system. One of the underrated contributors to the Cardinals success, in my opinion, is the team moving quickly to ensure core contributors are signed to long-term contracts well before they reach free agency...
