XAVIER SCRUGGS RUMORS

Heyward, Scruggs stay hot as Cardinals' offense explodes for win

ST. LOUIS -- When the Cardinals needed someone to pick up their offense, Jason Heyward and Xavier Scruggs stepped up to the challenge. When the other capable bats in the lineup started producing on Saturday, Heyward and Scruggs just kept hitting. They provided some of the most significant at-bats in an 8-1 rout of the Cubs that extended St. Louis' winning streak to six games. Heyward...

Cardinals: What does Xavier Scruggs have to do for a shot?

Free Xavier Scruggs!!! In case you have lived under a rock for the past three weeks, the St. Louis Cardinals’ offense is dismal. A 43-23 team usually shouldn’t warrant much criticism but when you rank 25th in runs scored and have a stellar record, it’s clear that pitching is your crucible. Any baseball fan can say the winds of a baseball pitcher can change week to week. Pitching...

Xavier Scruggs Offers Internal Solution to Power Outage for St. Louis Cardinals

The St. Louis Cardinals have been successful by almost any standard. The team has consistently found itself in the postseason. They have managed to develop talent at most key positions on the field. They have often been the blueprint by which other teams hope to do business. However, one thing has been noticeably absent. The Cardinals have seemingly turned away from the long ball...

The St. Louis Cardinals All-Organization Team: First Base

Over the next couple of weeks, I will be selecting the Cardinals organizational All-Star team. The team will be structured like a 25-man roster. For each position, I will isolate the player who made the most starts for each team at that position and will select the one winner. Fans will get a say as well later in the post. In this post, I am going to look at the first base position...

Cards 1st Base Looking For Hambones, Scruggs & Harmony

Recently, Matt Adams and his melon-ball shape has either been dreadful or benched for Daniel Descalso. The only time Descalso should be in front of Adams is in pictures, so the photographer can see him. It's odd to think Fatt Adams isn't getting it done at the plate. I do have a useful suggestion for everyone in Missouri. Send a topless Adams into Ferguson. That would lighten...

Ranking the top 5 first basemen in the St. Louis Cardinals organization

The first base position is in great hands at the major league level. There are two major leaguers who could handle the position at a very high level. With Allen Craig and Matt Adams on the major league roster, there isn’t much need to rush any prospects or to have the next superstar ready. With that said, you will see that my top 5 is probably backwards of what it should be. It...
