The Wainwrightization of Rick Porcello

I don’t know if you paid much attention to Rick Porcello last year, but I bet you have made a bad pancake. You know, one of those pancakes when you wait too long before you flip it.

TCN Blog 2015 Top Story #4: Historically Great Pitching

In this countdown, I have already written about the 2015 St. Louis Cardinals pitching several times. Among the topics have been Carlos Martinez’ breakout, Jaime Garcia’s comeback, Trevor Rosenthal’s consistency as well as Adam Wainwright’s injury and John Lackey admirably filling the gap.

Reading the future of the St. Louis Cardinals

Perhaps signing Mike Leake was a start, but he can’t be the only answer for the St. Louis Cardinals in 2016, can he? With fellow hurler Lance Lynn expected to miss the entire 2016 season, the Red Birds needed another. John Lackey went to the Cubs, while David Price was offered much more money to play for Boston. So to the tune of $80 million over five years, they got the 28-year...

Mets Can’t Afford To Stand Pat

The 2006 season ended for the Mets with Carlos Beltran frozen by a wicked Adam Wainwright curveball with the bat on his shoulder. The Mets reasoned with another break or two, they could have won the NLCS that year and advanced to the World Series. Perhaps thinking if the breaks went their way in 2007 they might get to the World Series, the Mets did precious little that winter. METS...
