Cubs claim scrub pitcher from Cardinals; SEASON SAVED!

The Chicago Cubs might lose 95 games this year. Who knows with this move today, maybe they’ll only lose 90. Or maybe not. The Cubs claimed right-handed pitcher Eduardo Sanchez off waivers from the first place St. Louis Cardinals. Getting a cast off from the front-running Cardinals has got to help, right? To their credit, the Cubs aren’t in last place. They’re penultimate in...

Jason Motte has torn UCL. Could Michael Wacha be an option as closer?

According to Jennifer Langosch, an MRI on Jason Motte's arm today revealed a tear in his ulnar collateral ligament.  He will be shut down until May 1st and then checked again for any improvement.  If none, he will likely undergo Tommy John surgery. This is a big blow for a Cardinals bullpen that has struggled so far this year.  With their closer likely out for the year...

Cardinals bullpen is struggling without Jason Motte

After a quality start against the Reds today, Jaime Garcia got to sit on the bench and watch the Cardinals bullpen implode, costing him a win and the Cards the game. Trevor Rosenthal started it off by blowing a save in the 8th, giving up a run to tie the game, before Mitchell Boggs and Marc Rzepczynski came on in the 9th to allow a combined 9 runs and make a close game into a laugher...

Cardinals minor league spring training notebook: 03/17/13

On Sunday, the St. Louis Cardinals minor leaguers had five games against the Miami Marlins minor leaguers. All were on the Miami side of the complex except for Peoria 2’s game, which was on St. Louis’ diamonds, all at Roger Dean. Only Peoria 2, the lowest-level club, was victorious. Not only did they shut out the Marlins’ fifth club, they almost no-hit them. Memphis (three...

What if the Cardinals had traded more prospects?

Some St. Louis Cardinals fans are questioning the club’s management for not making an impact trade before Tuesday’s non-waiver trade deadline. Their only deal was swapping former first-rounder Zack Cox to Miami for reliever Edward Mujica. While the rumor mill linked the Cards to a number of prominent players supposedly on the market, only a very few of those names ended up...

Trial and errors: Cardinals somehow win

In essence, the Cardinals beat the Miami Marlins, 8-7, in 10 innings Monday night both in spite of themselves and because of themselves. Home-plate umpire Bob Davidson had a little to do with it, too. But if the Cardinals' season amounts to anything, they may well look back at this game as a watershed moment. In the seventh, after the Cardinals had cut Miami's lead to 2...
