PETER BOURJOS RUMORS

With walk-off winner, Bourjos strengthens his case for more starts

ST. LOUIS -- Peter Bourjos has grown so accustomed to not being in the lineup this season that Mike Matheny usually gives him a heads-up the night when he is going to start. But that might be changing. When you're in the lineup every day, advance notice is not needed. Given the developments of the past two days, Bourjos might be working his way into the Cardinals' lineup...

Bourjos believes Cardinals are 'really ready to take off'

The Pittsburgh Pirates' season ended in St. Louis a year ago. That won't happen Wednesday at Busch Stadium, but another defeat would severely hamper Pittsburgh's hopes of winning the NL Central. These division rivals meet for the final time in the regular season, with the Cardinals searching for a fifth straight win and three-game sweep that would push the third-place...

Bourjos is a flash -- with the leather, between bases -- when he gets the chance

ST. LOUIS -- Watching Peter Bourjos put his wheels in high gear is as entertaining as any aspect of watching the Cardinals this season. We've seen flashes, such as the sliding catch in Sunday night's game that prompted Mike Matheny to say, "There's not many center fielders in the league who make that play." There were two stolen bases that followed an eighth...

Trying hard to like Peter Bourjos

Before I start off on a topic more contentious than immigration reform, race relations, the gender gap, and boxers or briefs all rolled into one, I owe you a disclaimer. I’m not always 100% honest here on the blog. Now, hang on, I’m not lying to my four loyal readers each week…I’m just not always as perfectly open as I could be in the interest of bringing some objectivity...

The most surprising Los Angeles Angel this season

Long after the concession stands closed, loyal fans still populated the seats of Angel Stadium, eager to see the 1-1 tie broken. It was Tuesday night, and the American League West powerhouse Oakland Athletics were in town. Finally, in the bottom of the fourteenth inning, Los Angeles Angel outfielder Collin Cowgill blasted a home run into the left field bullpen, securing a series...

Bourjos among 10 worst starts through five Cardinals games

We were taught that “Bourjos” rhymes with “gorgeous,” but the outfielder’s hitting so far this season has been anything but handsome. Batting seventh for the St. Louis Cardinals in Pittsburgh Saturday evening, centerfielder Peter Bourjos went 0-for-3 with a walk. In his first five games with his new club, the right-handed hitter is now 0-for-13 including six strikeouts...

Can Peter Bourjos Handle The Pressure Of St. Louis?

No, St. Louis isn’t Boston, Philadelphia or New York. There aren’t screaming headlines on the back pages of tabloids (like this or this) everyday designed to get Cardinals fans into a lather. At the same time, the seriousness of baseball is every bit the equal to the northeast. We’re the disappointed parent that has incredibly high standards, not the ones screaming in the aisles...

Cardinals still figuring out how to best utilize Bourjos' exceptional wheels

Early in spring training, Peter Bourjos was huddled with Willie McGee after a morning workout at the team's camp in Jupiter, Fla. The topic was speed, a trait both the present and former Cardinals center fielders are quite familiar with. As a new Cardinal, Bourjos was trying to set up a time when he could work with McGee, in camp as a roving instructor. "I'll get here...

Will the St. Louis Cardinals offense be better in 2014?

The 2013 St. Louis Cardinals led the National League in runs scored by a large margin.  The Cardinals were also first in the league in on-base percentage.  Their offense helped power them to 97 wins, but there will be some significant changes to their lineup for 2014.  This year, the offense will have a chance to be as productive as last year, but they will have to do so in a...
