Poll: Which St. Louis Cardinals player would you hate to see traded the most?

I originally wanted to title this post, “Which Cards player is off-limits the most?” Problem with that is, many reasonable fans would realize that no player is off-limits. If the right deal was proposed, you would be willing to part with that one “untouchable” prospect. I also chose this question because the trade deadline is this week, and there is a great chance the Cardinals...

Matt Adams, A.J. Pierzynski come through as Cardinals win 6-3 over Cubs to snap four game skid

Shelby Miller returned to the starting rotation Saturday afternoon at Wrigley Field in Game 2 of this three game series. Making his first start since July 10th, along came a new battery mate as A.J. Pierzynski was in the starting lineup making his Cardinal debut. The new battery started off pretty well today. Though Miller did not get the win as he was searching for his first win...

St. Louis Cardinals quick hits: A.J. Pierzynski, Matt Adams and Peter Bourjos

The St. Louis Cardinals lost their fourth consecutive game in a row on Friday afternoon in Chicago, against the Cubs, and #CardinalNation is suddenly on edge.  The clubs is just 2-4 since the break and is still looking up at the Milwaukee Brewers in the NL Central, and oh, they signed the highly unpopular A.J. Pierzynski to come in and attempt to stop the bleeding behind the plate...

Waiting for the regression of Matt Adams

After the 2013 season, it seemed impossible that Allen Craig would be an afterthought this season as Matt Adams has taken over the darling position as the Cardinals favorite flavor on offense. And rightly so. While Craig has had a hard time getting going this season, Adams has taken the world by storm by batting .325 with .532 slugging percentage and an impressive .376 wOBA....

Matt Adams Really Loves His Dad

Big City.  Big Country.  Big Mayo. There’s a reason we call Matt Adams Big Fill-In-The-Blank on this blog.  There are so many nicknames floating around for him, all based on the idea that he’s a big guy.  On a weekend where we lost a pop culture legend, though, it seems appropriate to reach back into Casey Kasem’s heyday to pull out another nom de plume. The Big Bopper...
