Shelby Miller, Worth It To The Atlanta Braves

With Winter Meetings being underway and an abundance of big fish still yet to be netted, the probability that the proverbial dominos will start to fall soon is a definite. Even with some of the bigger names still in play, namely the top notch arms of Jon Lester and Max Scherzer, one could argue in favor of the some of the moves made so far being more important than any other occurrence...

Atlanta Braves nab Nick Markakis in free agency

The Atlanta Braves have been tinkering with their roster ever since the 2014 season came to a close, but the team may have outdone itself on Wednesday with the signing of Baltimore Orioles outfielder Nick Markakis. Markakis, who is from Woodstock, Georgia, stands alone as the Braves’ biggest signing so far this year. A former first round draft pick out of Young Harris College,...

St. Louis Cardinals Still Don’t Need A High-Priced Starting Pitcher After Shelby Miller Trade

The St. Louis Cardinals took a chunk out of their pitching depth with their first big move of the offseason Nov. 17 when they sent right-hander Shelby Miller to the Atlanta Braves as part of a four-player deal for outfielder Jason Heyward, but they should not be in a rush to sign a big-name free agent to fill that void. The Cardinals still have an abundance of pitching depth, and...

Atlanta Braves are building for 2017 – and that’s OK

The Atlanta Braves weren’t going to compete for a World Series next season, and barring any substantial financial repositioning, they weren’t going to be able to offer reigning National League Overall Defensive Player of the Year Jason Heyward a competitive contract either. With those realities in mind, and some unfortunate contracts still on the books (former second baseman...

Can The Braves Fix Shelby Miller?

The title of this post presupposes a few things — that new Brave Shelby Miller is broken; that Shelby Miller can be fixed; that Shelby Miller has not yet been fixed; that some teams are more likely than others to fix certain problems. We’re not going to leave those presuppositions aside, though. Let’s instead tackle […]

Jason Heyward trade helps the St. Louis Cardinals

The last three seasons have ended in disappointment for the St. Louis Cardinals, even though the team has reached the NLCS at a minimum. In one of the first major moves of the offseason, the Atlanta Braves dealt Jason Heyward to the St. Louis Cardinals on Monday. A big trade with the Atlanta Braves on Monday could be a splash in helping this team capture its 12th World Series title...

St Louis Cardinals: will the Pirates catch them?

With only 10 games remaining in the season for the St. Louis Cardinals, they hold a 2.5 game lead over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Is that a substantial enough lead, or will the Pirates catch the Redbirds? The Cardinals have split the first 2 games with the Brewers, and have Shelby Miller opposing Kyle Lohse tonight. Both teams are playing with a sense of urgency right now, and the Cardinals...

Shelby Miller might need minor league-type adjustment with St. Louis Cardinals

St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Shelby Miller endured the worst start of his Major League Baseball career Wednesday against the New York Yankees at Busch Stadium, and his 2014 season has firmly become a sophomore slump for the third-place finisher in the 2013 Rookie of the Year balloting. The Yankees pounded Miller for seven runs and nine hits in five innings on their way to...

Cardinals fan appears to have passed out after loss to Yankees

After the Cardinals demolished the Yankees 6-0 in Tuesday’s interleague matchup, the Bronx Bombers returned the favor by beating up on St. Louis P Shelby Miller to the tune of seven earned runs last night. The Yankees won the game, 7-4, even though the Cardinals out-hit them by a 13-12 margin. And some Cardinals fans weren’t happy with the result. And it seems one particular...

Shelby Miller could be most vital member of St. Louis Cardinals starting rotation

St. Louis Cardinals righthanded starting pitcher Shelby Miller had plenty of pressure on him in 2013, his first full season in Major League Baseball. He handled it admirably and at times led the starting staff, but he might have to do more of the same in 2014. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny had not guaranteed Miller a spot in the starting rotation at the beginning of spring training...
