ST. LOUIS (AP) Cardinals left fielder Matt Holliday left Saturday's game against Cincinnati in the bottom of the first inning because of tightness in his back.

Given the sloppiness and general disappointment of the home opener, it was nice to see the Redbirds come out and play a couple of stronger games to take the series against the Brewers.

A player can become a poster child of sorts for his club’s offense. Edwin Encarnacion notwithstanding, I think of Jose Bautista and his pull power when I think of the Blue Jays. Mark Trumbo’s free-swinging ways embody the Diamondbacks, at least for me. Ben Zobrist hasn’t even played a game for the A’s yet, and […]

With the Cardinals set to open the regular season on Sunday Night at Wrigley Field against the rival Chicago Cubs, they open the season in good shape as defending NL Central champs. Before Wainwright and Lester take the mound at Wrigley, I will make several predictions for the 2015 Cardinals.

A couple of months ago I examined the value of Matt Holliday and pinpointed seven reasons why he is still money and the Cards investment is still strong as Holliday enters his sixth full season with the team. I suddenly felt the need to take a deeper dive. Holliday is the name many Cardinal fans love to overanalyze or criticize. They either attack his defense(nothing to brag about...
There are certain people in St. Louis who still don’t appreciate Matt Holliday, aka the Hulk of Stillwater, Oklahoma. The veteran outfielder has stabilized left field for the Cards since the middle of 2009 and shown a durability and consistency that many armchair skippers can’t seem to love.
