Let’s Try Something New With Kozma And Cruz

The Cardinals sport the best record in baseball and will be playing games in October because, you know, that’s what they do. Meanwhile, 29 other teams are in fights of varying winability for postseason positions. Unfortunately, not everyone can make the tournament. Some franchises are worse than others when it comes to competing for championships. To wit… The following teams...

Why are Tony Cruz and Pete Kozma still on the Cardinals?

Excuse me while I complain about the team with the best record in baseball(and fans for that matter, according to popular opinion and Deadspin). The St. Louis Cardinals have won a lot of games(63 to be exact) and when a writer picks at that shiny emblem of greatness, he can be scolded. As I wrote a couple of weeks ago via KSDK, John Mozeliak’s roster management is troubling at...

St Louis Cardinals: Hot/Cold Spring

The St. Louis Cardinals are off to a 9-7 start in Spring Training for 2015, but what matters more than records in the baseball world in March are individual performances. Through 16 spring games, the Cardinals have many players both struggling and on hot streaks as they prepare for opening day in 2 weeks. Let’s take a look at who’s hot and who’s not: Hot Pete Kozma: Out of...

Pete Kozma Might Be the Super-Sub the St. Louis Cardinals Need

Pete Kozma‘s name doesn’t come up a whole lot in St. Louis these days. Once the starting shortstop for the St. Louis Cardinals, Kozma finds himself fighting for a roster spot for the second spring in a row. The odds may be in his favor this time. Kozma is a player who seems to have everything figured out on defense. Unfortunately, it is not always enough to overcome his shortcomings...

St. Louis Cardinals trade rumors: Pete Kozma edition

It appears that Pete Kozma’s time with the St. Louis Cardinals is coming to an end. Once known for helping the Cards in their 2012 and 2013 postseason runs, Kozma looks on the outs with the ball club. Kozma was recently called up from Triple-A affiliate Memphis Redbirds in order to add infielder depth to the roster. After the never ending injuries at the pitching position, Kozma...

The Case For Pete Kozma

A couple of weeks ago, in my first quarterly report, I mentioned Pete Kozma and practically declared his career in a Cardinal uniform over. He was hitting below .200 in Memphis at the time. But since then Kozma has managed to turn things around (hitting .429 last 10 games) and I have had a change in heart. Last month, Corey Rudd wrote an article comparing Daniel Descalso to Ty...

Kozma's day of reckoning is fast approaching, and he knows it

JUPITER, Fla. -- Sometime Friday night, possibly after the Cardinals have finished their exhibition game against the Memphis Redbirds, manager Mike Matheny figures to call shortstop Pete Kozma into his office. Their meeting will be one that both have seen coming since the Cardinals signed Jhonny Peralta four months ago, but anticipation doesn't figure to make it any easier. Telling...

Pete Kozma could be odd-man out for 2014 St. Louis Cardinals

St. Louis Cardinals shortstop Pete Kozma has had as much of a rollercoaster ride of a career as any Cardinals player without injury in recent memory, but he could be headed toward another valley in 2014 after two years at the top of the ride. The Cardinals drafted Kozma out of Owasso High School in Owasso, Okla., with the 18th overall pick of the 2007 draft. Kozma was 19 years old...

McNeal: What's next for Pete Kozma and the Cardinals?

ST. LOUIS -- Just one month after helping his club win Game 2 of the World Series, shortstop Pete Kozma had become persona non grata on the Cardinals. Hey, that can happen when you post the lowest OPS in the National League over the past 23 seasons (minimum of 140 games played), no matter how slick your glove. The Cardinals gave Kozma a season to show he could hit big-league pitching...
