Will Adam Wainwright’s ‘dead arm’ drag the Cardinals out of contention?

If the Cardinals intended to put some space between themselves and the Pirates, they failed to do so by losing two out of three to Pittsburgh, capped off by a 3-1 loss at PNC Park on Wednesday. More troubling for St. Louis, however, could be the status of No. 1 starter Adam Wainwright. The Cards’ ace told Though the Cardinals could get a respite by playing the Cubs in their next...

St. Louis Cardinals Inconsistency To End Soon, Good Or Bad

The highly favored St. Louis Cardinals have sputtered through the 2014 Major League Baseball season so much that it has often felt as if they’ve squashed much of the optimism from a fan base that was often over-exuberant in its preseason hopes for another run to the World Series.
