Prospecting for Catchers: A look at the catching depth in the St. Louis Cardinals organization

Twice a year, I like to look at the depth of each position in the Cardinals organization. What I like to do is to rank them based on which players have the best chance of having an impactful major league career. This is not about who is closest to the majors, we are looking for MLB impact players. In this case, we are looking for the successor to Yadier Molina. Now, none of these...

St. Louis Cardinals need to stockpile wins before August

The St. Louis Cardinals have done an admirable job in the first three weeks of July by winning four of their five series to climb back toward the top of the National League Central Division, and now they have a chance to position themselves well for the final third of the season.

Yadier Molina sends snack to home plate for brother Jose (VIDEO)

via Instagram Cardinals catcher Yadier Molinais out another six to ten weeks-ish with a torn thumb ligament, but his giving spirit is anything but damaged.  During Wednesday’s game against the Rays, who happened to be starting Yadi’s brother Jose behind the plate, Yadier sent some peanut butter crackers via first base coach Jose Oquendo who dropped them off on his way out....

Will a Devalued Taveras Follow Rasmus’ Path Out of Town?

I don’t think there is any doubt that Oscar Taveras is the St. Louis Cardinals’ most celebrated position prospect since Colby Rasmus. I have to admit that I am holding a fear that would connect the two outfielders in another way. I wonder if Cardinals manager Mike Matheny’s curious disuse of Taveras could be the prelude of a repeat of one of what I consider to be the most...

What seemed like a pretty strong core going into the season, has had to rely heavily on Pat Neshek and Sam Freeman for a good chunk of the season.

A tale of two slumps: Craig and Taveras aren't making Matheny's job any easier

ST. LOUIS -- If ever there has been more fuss made over a guy hitting .200, it must have been before my time. And I'm quite old. First, the pleas came to get Oscar Taveras to the majors. Now that he's arrived, apparently for the long haul, the cries come daily to put him in the lineup. On one hand, I get it. The 22-year right fielder is considered by the Cardinals -- and...

Michael Wacha’s return more crucial for St. Louis Cardinals than Yadier Molina

Yadier Molina might have suffered the most serious injury of the 2014 season for the St. Louis Cardinals, but one of the injuries to their pitchers might be the most significant in their attempt at another National League Central Division title. The Cardinals at least know they will be without Molina for at least the next two months, and that timeframe leaves about only two weeks...
