Cardinals: Is Pedro Alvarez worth a look?

Pedro Alvarez was non-tendered by the Pittsburgh Pirates Wednesday. Would he be a good fit for the St. Louis Cardinals, a team he tormented for the past three seasons? Let’s dig in. Jason Heyward’s return would be nice, but he isn’t enough to fix this weak Cardinals offense that has finished with a sub .400 slugging the past two years. Asking Heyward to be more than what he...

5 Highlights We’re All Thankful For In 2015

The 2015 season didn’t end particularly well for the St. Louis Cardinals. But over the course of 101 wins in 166 games, the Cardinals did some pretty cool stuff. We went to the tubes and found 5 fond memories from this past summer/fall and posted them below. I think we should be pretty darn thankful that we get to watch the Cardinals each and every summer, right? +++++ 1) Jhonny...

Cardinals: Matt Adams or Brandon Moss in postseason?

There’s still work to be done this week but I can’t help but think about playoff roster assignments for the St. Louis Cardinals. More importantly, who doesn’t make it? Who between say, Matt Adams and Brandon Moss, do you take? Before play opens tonight against Milwaukee, the Cards are 97-56, a whopping 41 games over .500. They are only four games ahead of the wild card leading...

Three At-Bats with Brandon Moss

In a slump, the mental and physical combine to confuse, and the player ends up in a spiral. “You go up to the plate and you think about your weaknesses, and you start focusing on them, and you start chasing,” Brandon Moss said before a game against the Giants, adding “it all starts to spin around.” Since having offseason hip surgery, the Cardinals’ slugger has been spinning...

Cardinals 40 Games Over .500 For First Time Since 2005

What’s it like being a Pirates fan? You’d think being 28 games over .500 on September 1st, it’d be pretty good. Somehow, though, they’re 6 games in arrears for the NL Central lead and watching the Cardinals push to 40 games over .500 with a walk-off home run in the bottom of the 9th inning. I've got nothing. They are the worst. The absolute worst. — Brian McElhinny (@rtjr...

Cardinals Needed Brandon Moss To Shine… He Didn’t

When a team records 2 hits over the course of 9 innings, it’s hard to focus the sight on one player in particular. Very few times in the history of baseball has a team won a game with 2 hits.

Lance Lynn gets the start and lasts 2/3 of an inning before getting pulled. The Cardinals are down 7 runs before the home side has had a single at bat.

Next Up: Indians vs. Yankees and opportunities a-plenty

Well, whaddya know? The Cleveland Indians, in winning two of three games against the Minnesota Twins over the weekend, scored 34 runs. Perhaps the Twins are succumbing to the test by fire that is the long major league season. An in-house theory is the Change of Scenery thesis put forth by A. Clayman of WFNY. Whatever the cause, there was a charged atmosphere at Progressive Field...

Both of whom are nice players, but neither one is anything close to resembling a superstar. The Tribe, of course, is no stranger to being an impact player at the deadline and making big-time deals...

No, of course the Cardinals didn’t make any big splashes. And that’s understandable.
