St Louis Cardinals: NLCS preview vs Giants

The St. Louis Cardinals are in their 4th straight NLCS, further proving their dominance over the national league. They will take on a familiar foe in the Giants, a team that knocked them out of the playoffs in 2012 in a 7-game NLCS. There is no denying either team’s presence here, with the Cardinals defeating Clayton Kershaw twice and the Giants picking apart the NL-best (based...

And it simply isn’t working. Wacha went five innings...

Mike Matheny , John Mozeliak, trainers, a [...]

Poll Results: Who has a better MLB career, Michael Wacha or Carlos Martinez?

When I asked this question, I had a thought that Michael Wacha would be favored. He has more experience and has had more success as a starter. With that said, I also thought Carlos Martinez would get a pretty good chunk of the votes. While Martinez has made just 8 career MLB starts, I thought Cards fans would see the potential and swing a few votes his way. Take Our Poll Boy...

Michael Wacha Faces Interesting End to 2014

The St. Louis Cardinals entered the 2014 season with Adam Wainwright and Michael Wacha poised to lead the rotation forward.  Wainwright, the established veteran, was ready to resume the role of staff ace, a role he had been groomed for over his career.  Wacha looked to build on his success in the 2013 postseason and prove that he would be the future ace of the team. The...

Michael Wacha Is Now A Model

Michael Wacha is now a model, apparently. (Insert joke about having more free time since he’s on DL, etc., etc., etc.) In this Month’s issue of GQ Magazine (the one with Emily Ratajkowski on the cover – yes, the same girl that was in Robin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines Video’), we find a special advertising section (that’s labeled as such) meant to look like content (hence...

Cardinals Pitchers are Showing Signs of Strengthening their Weaknesses

Michael Wacha has already made his mark in Cardinals’ history along with essentially still being a prospect who has a bright future ahead of him. One of his limitations that is often times repeated is his lack of pitches. He has gotten a lot of mileage out of changing speeds, but sooner or later he needs to develop another strong pitch. Last year he attempted to develop a cut fastball...
