PETER BOURJOS RUMORS

Matheny provides the gift of the two-hole and Bourjos responds

ST. LOUIS -- There might be no better place in baseball to hit than the second spot in the St. Louis Cardinals' batting order. You get to bat after Matt Carpenter and before Matt Holliday, which means you often will be batting with someone on base and, when you get on, you'll have someone coming up who can clean the bases with one swing. Because pitchers prefer to face Holliday...

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...

Some reasonable expectations for each Cardinal in 2014

Peter Bourjos does not shy from stating 40 stolen bases is a goal for 2014. Adam Wainwright says he wants to have fewer walks than starts, a goal he came close to reaching last season, when he walked 35 in 34 regular-season starts. Lance Lynn makes no secret that he is out to pitch 200 innings again. Most of the Cardinals, though, prefer to keep their personal goals to themselves...

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...

CF Bourjos introduces himself to Cardinals

JUPITER, Fla. -- Peter Bourjos figured a friendly game or two of pingpong would be a good way to introduce himself to the guys on his new team, the St. Louis Cardinals. He didn't necessarily want to win them all. "I really didn't want to do that," the smiling Bourjos said. "I was hoping somebody would beat me." The right-handed hitting centerfielder was...

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...

Peter Bourjos Q & A: Learning A New Home & ‘The Catch’

One of the consistent questions around the Cardinals in recent years has been if they will upgrade in center field. Often, the idea is around finding a new bat for the position, however when the opportunity presented itself to make such a move, John Mozeliak went in the opposite direction by acquiring one of the most renown outfield gloves in the game, which is the one that Peter...
