Have the Cardinals benched Oscar Taveras?

When the Cardinals traded Allen Craig to the Red Sox for John Lackey the assumption was that the move had two goals for St. Louis: One was to bring in rotation help with Lackey and the other was to clear an everyday spot in the outfield and the lineup for stud prospect Oscar Taveras. However, now the 22-year-old rookie is struggling with a .206 batting average and .530 OPS through...

Jackie Bradley Jr. Needs Everyday At-Bats As Red Sox Evaluate Options

Jackie Bradley Jr. entered Tuesday trapped in an 0-for-35 slump. How should the Boston Red Sox address the issue? Give him more playing time. Sure, it sounds rather counterintuitive. In fact, the concept seems quite crazy for such a performance-based industry. But if the Red Sox intend to answer one of their most pressing questions down the stretch — who exactly is Bradley as a...

Allen Craig could return from the disabled list in a week

When outfielder Allen Craig jammed his left foot on the first base bag in his first game since being traded to the Red Sox, there was some speculation that he might be shut down for the remainder of the 2014 season. Craig suffered a left Lisfranc fracture in late 2013 and hasn’t been right since, so calling it quits and aiming for a fresh start in 2015 would make sense. But it...

St. Louis Cardinals: A first hand account on the evolution of Lance Lynn

The Cardinals are going to have lots of extra salary to throw around during the offseason. They were just able to unload the contract of an aging Allen Craig, and got a steal back with John Lackey and his $500,000 option for next season. That leaves plenty of money for the Cardinals to extend Lance Lynn during the offseason. Lynn has been that consistent cog in the middle of the...

Did the Boston Red Sox get damaged goods in Allen Craig?

If people were able to come to terms with the fact that the Boston Red Sox weren’t willing to pay Jon Lester, the general consensus was that the team got a good return for their deals at the deadline. One of the biggest pieces involved that day was Allen Craig, who came to town along with Joe Kelly in return for John Lackey. However, it has already become apparent that Craig has...

Allen Craig Headed To The 15-Day Disabled List

Well, that didn't take long. New Red Sox OF/INF Allen Craig —who injured his foot in his first game with The Carmine Hose—was placed on the 15-day disabled list today. It appears this would allow the team to keep Mookie Betts with the big club—since two players were called up from AAA.

World Series 'rematch' is least compelling aspect of Red Sox-Cards series

ST. LOUIS -- Some World Series rematch this will be. When the Red Sox and Cardinals hook up for three games this week, the uniforms will look the same but a lot of the players in them on both teams will be different. The Red Sox, 13 games under .500 and 13 1/2 games out of first place, blew up their roster before last week's trade deadline. As a result, only 11 players who appeared...
