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. The pitching was excellent, especially from the top of the rotation with Adam Wainwright and Lance Lynn. While the offense scuffled for most of the season, the power came out in the postseason and the team seemed to always find ways to score in the late innings to...

St Louis Cardinals closer dilemma: Rosenthal or Neshek?

It was almost one year ago that Trevor Rosenthal supplanted Edward Mujica as the Cardinals closer. Mujica was in the midst of an outstanding all-star campaign as the 9th inning man in St Louis when he imploded in September, amassing an 11.50 ERA. Despite racking up 37 saves for the Cardinals in the regular season, Mujica was yanked from his closer role in favor of Trevor Rosenthal...

The best gift ever exchanged for a jersey number?

When John Lackey was traded from the Boston Red Sox to the St. Louis Cardinals at the deadline, he was confronted with a conundrum, a relatively minor one in the grand scheme of things, but a conundrum nevertheless. Lackey, much like many of his professional sports-playing contemporaries — especially baseball players — apparently is something […] The post John Lackey gave Pat...

The Emergence Of Pat Neshek

Pat Neshek didn’t just turn into a great pitcher in 2014. He has been pretty good before and with a few different baseball teams. The seven year veteran broke onto the scene in 2006 with the Minnesota Twins and dazzled in his rookie season. In 37 innings, he compiled a 0.78 WHIP(walks and hits per inning pitched) [...]

Neshek filled with emotion upon return to Minnesota as All-Star

MINNEAPOLIS -- Simply retelling the moment that nearly brought him to tears nearly brought Pat Neshek to tears. St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny gathered his team in the clubhouse earlier this month to announce that catcher Yadier Molina had made the All-Star team, followed by news that Adam Wainwright and Matt Carpenter would be joining him.

After initial scare, Neshek is back with Cards and newborn son appears to be OK

JUPITER, Fla. -- Proud new papa Pat Neshek wore a smile of relief as well as happiness when he returned to Cardinals camp Monday morning. Undoubtedly, there was some trepidation mixed in, too. Neshek's wife, Stephanee, gave birth to a 7-pound, 11-ounce boy -- Hoyt Robert Neshek (yes, after the knuckleballer) -- on Thursday night. The newborn arrived 11 days earlier than the March...

Armed with a newly rediscovered fastball, Pat Neshek is turning heads in Jupiter

JUPITER, Fla. -- Cardinals right-hander Pat Neshek looks like the same pitcher who worked for the Oakland A's last year. He's still using that funky sidearm delivery. He's still relieving. He's still throwing a slider that makes him tough on right-handed hitters. But to Neshek, he's not the same pitcher who put up a solid season for the A's in 2013. Not even close. For one reason...

St. Louis Cardinals sign veteran reliever Pat Neshek

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...
