With second baseman Mark Ellis still dealing with a tender knee, there's a chance he could start...

St. Louis Cardinals spring position battle: The last bullpen spot

Position battles are few and far between for the 2014 St. Louis Cardinals. There are three positions that have yet to be decided, the last bench spot, the last rotation spot, and the last bullpen spot. Players that are fighting for these positions would win spots on many other teams. These are problems only good teams have. On Sunday, the Cardinals announced three cuts from major...

Ranking the top St. Louis Cardinals prospects: 31-35

The last of the 30′s features a couple of potential bullpen arms in Fornataro and Butler, while a move to the ‘pen could be in Whiting’s future as well. The lone offensive player in this grouping is interesting. Rodriguez had probably one of the five best seasons of any batter in the Cards’ organization in 2013.

If Keith Butler wants to leave the Steelers, who could blame him?

It seems that anytime a former Steelers coordinator accepts a head coaching job in the NFL, rumors begin to swirl that he’ll snatch Keith Butler, the team’s linebackers coach since 2003, away and make him his new defensive coordinator.

Cardinals Option Reliever Keith Butler To Memphis

Right-handed reliever Keith Butler has been optioned by the St. Louis Cardinals to their Triple-A Memphis minor league club. Butler, who dominated the past month and a half with a 1.98 ERA and 0.88 WHIP should get called up soon after the All-Star break. Of course Butler could be a benefactor of circumstance as he has only pitched an average of 2 innings a week. The post Cardinals...
