St Louis Cardinals 2014 season in review

Despite a disappointing exit in the NLCS, 2014 has to be considered a successful season for the St. Louis Cardinals.

Cardinals Rumors: St. Louis not expected to retain Pat Neshek

Pat Neshek had an excellent year in 2014 with the St. Louis Cardinals.  He not only was the most reliable pitcher in the rocky Cardinal bullpen, but he made it to the all-star game as a non-closer.  But after surrendering the lead in the deciding game of the National League Championship Series, Neshek has probably thrown his last pitch as a Cardinal. #457336944 / gettyimages...

Pat Neshek could have big effect for St. Louis Cardinals bullpen

The St. Louis Cardinals did not give veteran righthanded relief pitcher Pat Neshek a contract that will guarantee him a spot on the Opening Day roster, but he could become a vital, if unlikely, part of the team’s 2014 bullpen. The Cardinals have few needs for a pitching staff stacked with young, talented pitchers, but the under-the-radar minor league contract the organization...

Less than a week before pitchers and catchers report to spring training for the 2014 season, the Cardinals have signed veteran relief pitcher Pat Neshek to a minor league deal.  Neshek, 33, is a right-hander with a sidearm delivery that is closer to submarine than traditional overhand.  The Cardinals were due to add a veteran reliever after the departures of Edward Mujica and John...
