When you think of the reason the St. Louis Cardinals are in playoff contention, who comes to your mind? Matt Carpenter? Yadier Molina? Carlos Martinez? How about Brandon Moss?

Rosenthal: The Beginning of the End of Another Closer?

Friends, it should be common knowledge by now that I don’t care much for the St. Louis Cardinals. I’ve recognized their greatness over the years, sure. That doesn’t mean I’ve enjoyed it.

Projecting Cardinals Call-Up Alex Reyes

The St. Louis Cardinals recalled top prospect Alex Reyes yesterday and, a few hours later, the hard-throwing right-hander recorded his major-league debut, striking out one in a clean inning of relief work (box).
