CARDINALS RUMORS & GOSSIP

WATCH: Cardinals OF Stephen Piscotty makes incredible diving catch

St. Louis Cardinals right fielder Stephen Piscotty ran a long way to make a fantastic diving catch in foul territory on Thursday afternoon at Busch Stadium. And it was in a big spot too, as the Phillies had two on with no outs in the ninth, trying to rally from a 4-0 deficit. Here’s video of Piscotty’s tremendous play: Not fair, Stephen Piscotty: https://t.co/k2SEUhFVL5 pic...

Fresh perspective helping Wong's approach

When the Cardinals signed Kolten Wong to a five-year, $25.5 million extension this spring, they hoped the financial certainty would allow the second baseman to take a more relaxed approach to the game. A month into the season, however, Wong is still finding himself fighting the tendency to stew over the missed opportunities more than he celebrates the success.

Mike Matheny and Lineups: A Cardinals Conundrum

How many lineups can a manager churn out during a season? Mike Matheny tests that theory often. I’m a Mike Matheny apologist, but even I find his many lineup constructions a doozy at times. Still, should we rip him or praise his experimentation? Before you rip Mike Matheny and his many St. Louis Cardinals lineups, understand that Tony La Russa did it too. Don’t act like Jason...

Randal Grichuk falling back down to earth

A big part of the reason why the St. Louis Cardinals didn’t re-sign all-star outfielder Jason Heyward was because of their faith in young outfielders such as Randal Grichuk, Stephen Piscotty Tommy Pham and even Jeremy Hazelbaker. At least in Grichuk’s case, fantasy owners exercised the same faith by selecting him in the 14th round of 10-team leagues. Through the first month of...

Mike Leake can't even buy a win but Kevin Siegrist Can: Cards win 5-4 on 5/4

Mike Leake still unimpressive but the binary Cardinals offense put up a middling number with a weird lineup and evened it out at .500. The offense and bullpen again covered up some lackluster starting pitching. Pregame Very old barton on the rocks. Mike Leake looking for his first Cardinal win (have I wrote this before?). Cardinals offense, fraudulent? Cardinals 10+ runs scored...

Problems for Mike Leake and the St. Louis Cardinals

Early on in 2016, St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Mike Leake (#8) has not been as impressive as many fans would have hoped.  With a career ERA under 3.90 heading into this season, Leake has seen his ERA jump to 5.83 in his first five starts for the Cardinals.  The 28 year old is also 0-3 in those five starts, and the Cardinals are 1-4 in games he’s started. Why has Leake...

Yadier Molina reinventing himself at the plate

While Aledmys Diaz and Jeremy Hazelbaker got most of the attention in the season’s first month, perhaps the biggest surprise on the St. Louis Cardinals comes from the team’s longest-tenured player. Yadier Molina heads into play Tuesday with a stellar .333 batting average and .412 on base percentage. Diaz and Hazelbaker were complete unknowns, so while their success is surprising...

WATCH: Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright hits an upper-deck blast

One cool thing about the National League if you’re a pitcher, is that you get the opportunity to bat and try to make up for runs you allowed on the mound (Note: I still think we should just have the DH in the NL, but that’s a topic for another day). St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright had allowed three earned runs on Monday night, and came to bat with his team trailing...

St. Louis Cardinals: April Report Card

One month into the 162-game grind that is the MLB season is hardly a long enough amount of time to make judgements about a team or a player for the rest of the year. However, a month of play does give fans a good idea of certain trends. For the St. Louis Cardinals, it is tough to pick things out, while some developing trends are certainly easier to spot.

St. Louis Cardinals: Meet Aledmys Diaz

Say hello to Aledmys Diaz, the next great player out of the farm system of the St. Louis Cardinals. Through 19 games, Diaz batted a scorching and league-leading .468, which would rank as the second-highest all-time in the month of April if he keeps it up. The shortstop stumbled a bit last night in a 3-0 loss against the Arizona Diamondbacks, going 0-3. Now, in 20 games, he is only...

Who will carry the St. Louis Cardinals’ offense?

Through the first 19 games of his MLB career, St. Louis Cardinals’ outfielder Jeremy Hazelbaker (#41) has been a pleasant surprise.  Although, pleasant doesn’t quite do the justice that Hazelbaker’s early statistics seem to deserve.  The 28 year old rookie is batting .308 with five homeruns and 13 RBIs. What has not been impressive for Hazelbaker, however, is his patience...
