Random thoughts on the Cardinals moves as the trade deadline dust settles

As we all continue to digest the trade deadline moves by the Cardinals, here are some of my random thoughts on them.The Cardinals overpaid on John LackeyLackey is a good pitcher and all that, but is he really worth both Allen Craig and Joe Kelly?  My initial impression when I heard of the trade was that we "sold low" on both Craig and Kelly.  Yes, they were both having...

Stephen Piscotty is not Oscar Taveras, and it’s not close

COMMENTARY | Spring Training 2014 was a big one for Stephen Piscotty, he stuck around big league camp all the way to the end. He had a very promising spring in which some called for him to make the major league roster out of spring. On the flip side, Oscar Taveras saw just six at-bats with the big club due to lingering ankle issues (whether mentally or physically). With their spring...

Stephen Piscotty’s future with the St. Louis Cardinals

Spring training has been a largely unsurprising affair. The usual suspects are hitting well, and some players we expected to do well last season are making good this spring. The St. Louis Cardinals outfield looked to be pretty well settled after the trade of David Freese to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim California, USA.It was to be Bourjos in center every day, with Matt Holliday...

Piscotty turning heads with performance during second trip to Cards' camp

JUPITER, Fla. -- Although this is only the second spring training for Cardinals prospect Stephen Piscotty, he knew enough about camp that he knew he needed to be ready. Easing into the action wouldn't work. He wanted to come in and impress his bosses enough that he would stay with the big league club longer than he did last season when he lasted only two games and went 0-for...

A Quick Second With Stephen Piscotty

Since being chosen by the Cardinals with the 36th pick in the 2012 Draft, Stephen Piscotty has blazed a path through the Cardinals organization and become perhaps the most heralded bat in the system not named Oscar Taveras. After a season where he hit .295 with 15 home runs, 23 doubles and drove in 59 runs in 112 games between Palm Beach and Springfield, he truly took a step onto...

Q&A: Stephen Piscotty, St. Louis Cardinals Outfield Prospect

The “pure hitter” label befits Stephen Piscotty. The St. Louis Cardinals’ outfield prospect hit .341 in his three seasons at Stanford, and won a Cape Cod League batting title in 2011. He’s continued to produce line drives since being taken 36th overall in the 2012 draft. Piscotty is coming off a productive first full professional season. Swinging from the right side, the...
