Slow down, Trevor! Smoke it, Jason! And more spring objectives

ST. LOUIS -- Just in case anyone needed a reminder, former Cardinals second baseman Tom Herr sent one Saturday. Indeed, nothing can take the hope out of a season more decidedly than a rash of injuries in the exhibition season. Still, work needs to be done, too, especially by young players who still have plenty to prove. When the Cardinals open their practice-game schedule Thursday...

St. Louis Cardinals: Spending more money does not equate to more wins

Cardinals wrap up long road trip with happy flight out of San Francisco

What a difference a day can make. On Wednesday morning, the Cardinals woke up having a miserable road trip. By Thursday evening, they were happy flighting it home to St. Louis. Of course, that's what two wins in 21 hours can do for a team that had been shut out in three of its previous five games. "We found a way to salvage the road trip and finish on a good note," Matt Carpenter...

MLB Game Picks - Thursday: July 3, 2014

Wednesday was another good day in a nice string of good days. In the last four days, the picks have gone 38-17. Only five picks were wrong yesterday. One was sort of dumb as I even said in the pick that the Cubs could sweep Boston but I didn't pick it that way. The Dodgers and Reds both lost again, which was unexpected with Ryu and Johnny Cueto pitching respectively. The other...

Cards scratch weary Wacha, send Martinez to mound in finale vs. Phillies

After struggling offensively during three straight losses, the St. Louis Cardinals finally scraped out enough runs to avoid their longest skid of the season. However, they'd still like to perform better with runners in scoring position. They'll look to break through in those situations in Sunday's series finale against the Philadelphia Phillies at Busch Stadium. The Cardinals (40...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Week 12 Free Agent Fixes

Source: Otto Greule Jr/Getty Images North America This week’s Free Agent Fixes are pitcher heavy with a trio highlighted.

MLB Game Picks - Friday: May 30, 2014

Have you ever heard a grim laugh? You know the kind where things get so bad you just have to laugh because there is nothing else you can do? When I went to see the scores last night, I immediately searched out the Dodgers game. And sure enough, they lost. They were the Game of the Day pick. And for the sixth straight day, it was incorrect. It's comical. It's a joke.To make matters...

Improved minor leagues makes early spring training games more relevant for St. Louis Cardinals fans

The St. Louis Cardinals and Miami Marlins played a classic spring training game Friday to open their 2014 exhibition schedules, as each team used 26 players. However, the Cardinals largely managed to avoid the traditional anonymity that turns the focus from names to the outrageously high numbers on the backs of the jerseys in the late innings of a February game in Florida. A dozen...
