5 Highlights We’re All Thankful For In 2015

The 2015 season didn’t end particularly well for the St. Louis Cardinals. But over the course of 101 wins in 166 games, the Cardinals did some pretty cool stuff. We went to the tubes and found 5 fond memories from this past summer/fall and posted them below. I think we should be pretty darn thankful that we get to watch the Cardinals each and every summer, right? +++++ 1) Jhonny...

Elizabeth, N.J. is known to St. Louis Cardinals minor league followers as the birthplace of the organization’s top prospect, currently-suspended 21-year-old right-handed pitcher Alex Reyes. An earlier native of the same New Jersey burg made his mark in the majors as the slugging first baseman-designated hitter of the Kansas City Royals from 1993-1996, Bob Hamelin. Hamelin became...

Cardinals: Is Alex Gordon a good fallback option?

Being a St. Louis Cardinals fan this winter will mean one thing. Will or won’t the Birds sign Jason Heyward? It will become a song that plays over and over in your head as the days on the calendar are slashed in the countdown to the spring. While certain signs bring him back to The Lou, you have to keep in your head that there is a chance he won’t come back. Crazy money will...

A Cardinals Watch That Includes Busch Stadium Dirt

Things are looking up for the 2015 gift giving season. In the past, we’ve been known to highlight the lowlights of Cardinals merchandise that inevitably will end up in some poor saps stocking. But as the shopping season ramps up, we’ve already seen at least one item that’s pretty dope… Watches filled with Busch Stadium dirt. We are so excited to launch these new watches...

Should the Cardinals target Alex Gordon over Jason Heyward?

When it comes to big ticket free agents, the St. Louis Cardinals have mostly preferred to build their roster with homegrown options or players acquired through trade. One of those trade acquisitions, Jason Heyward, is prepared to enter free agency at the age of 26. Because of his young age, the All-Star and three-time Gold […]

St. Louis Cardinals: Free agent profiles – Alexei Ramirez

Alexei Ramirez, did not think he would show up in the series did you? Well, he has, and there is a reason for that. Pete Kozma is off the 40-man roster and Greg Garcia is…not exactly a suitable backup infielder. Let me rephrase that, by “suitable backup infielder” I mean decent enough in case a starter goes down for a long period of time. With last season’s injury bug, a...

Cardinals: Q&A with John Mozeliak

Every winter the United Cardinal Bloggers, the group of scrappy analysts that gave me my start two years ago, have the chance to send a few questions to St. Louis Cardinals General Manager John Mozeliak.

Grichuk Makes Topps MLB All-Star Rookie Team

Randal Grichuk of the St. Louis Cardinals is one of the three outfielders included among the 12-man Topps MLB All-Star Rookie Team for 2015. Power is Grichuk’s forte. With over 13 percent of his hits going for extra bases, his slugging percentage (.548) and OPS (.877) not only topped the Cardinals rookie class, but were the highest on the entire St. Louis roster in 2015.

Beckett And LackeyWait a second! According to's Ken Rosenthal, the Red Sox are among six MLB teams that have "checked in" on John Lackey.

Is Jason Heyward the right choice for the Cardinals this winter?

The question has loomed since the second his acquisition was announced last November that Jason Heyward had been acquired from the Atlanta Braves: will he resign? The outfielder’s pending free agency has been as popular of a topic as his oft-jaw dropping catches and timely presence at the plate has been. And now with the Cardinals’ season officially in the books, the rumbling...

Cardinals: John Mozeliak will act before Jason Heyward decides

No one wants to be left out in the cold without any good options on the market. I fully expect St. Louis Cardinals GM John Mozeliak to explore the market and make a move before Jason Heyward decides where he wants to spend the next 7-10 years of his life playing baseball. Steve Mitchell-USA Today Mozeliak doesn’t like to wait to make moves in the winter. Once the Cards stop playing...

Lance Lynn’s surgery puts the Cardinals rotation in a precarious position

Yesterday, the Cardinals announced the unfortunate news that Lance Lynn would miss the entirety of the 2016 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery. It’s a huge blow to what was the best team in the National League in 2015. Lance Lynn saved the Cardinals rotation after Adam Wainwright went down with a season ending injury of his own and they never would have made the Postseason...

Jason Heyward did a cool thing no one cares about today

What I like about this little InstaGraphs section is that it allows for plays to be highlighted even if they don’t turn out all that important. Given what the Cubs pulled off Monday, it would be weird to dedicate a whole front-page post to a home run hit by Jason Heyward. Not a lot of people even clearly remember a home run being hit by Jason Heyward. The Cubs did well to smother...
