"When he doesn't get a double play," Joe Kelly says, "We are like ..."
In 2012, St. Louis Cardinals prospect Seth Maness was named the organization's minor league pitcher of the year, which was a pretty impressive accomplishment considering Shelby Miller, Trevor Rosenthal, Michael Wacha and Carlos Martinez were all members of the Cardinals minor league system in 2012.
Maness won the award because of his consistent performance and approach...
As many St. Louis Cardinals fans know, right-handed pitcher Seth Maness was promoted to the major leagues for the first time on Monday. The control artist was hailed by some as a welcome change-of-pace from the upper 90’s throwers getting considerable attention in the Cardinals bullpen.
Others, however, scoff at Maness’ 90-ish mile per hour fastball and compare the former 11th...
