Time for Jason Heyward To Break Out The Boom Stick

With Matt Adams hitting the disabled list this afternoon, it’s about time right fielder hopeful of the future Jason Heyward breaks out that boom stick he has been hiding for the first two months of the season. Through 43 games and 159 at bats, Heyward’s slash line of (.233/.285/.365) is just ugly and must improve. That makes for a [...]

MMO Game Recap: Cardinals 9, Mets 0

Another day, another drubbing of the New York Mets. Just when you thought the Mets’ 10-2 loss to the Cardinals last night was bad enough, they somehow managed to top themselves tonight. It all got started in the first, when Mets starter Bartolo Colon was obviously without his best stuff. After giving up a single to lead off the game and another hit two batters later, Jhonny Peralta...

It's tempting, but too soon to evaluate Miller-Heyward trade

Six weeks into the 2015 MLB season, Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak looks like a fool and Braves president of operations John Hart looks like a genius. An offseason trade between the two franchises that sent right-handed pitcher Shelby Miller to the Braves and outfielder Jason Heyward to the Cardinals has had lopsided results so far. Miller is dominating in Atlanta, boasting...

Will The Braves Rebound?

35 games into the season, the Atlanta Braves are 16-19. With the loss of Justin Upton, Jason Heyward, Evan Gattis, and Craig Kimbrel, this is a reasonable performance. The Braves have also had to deal with injuries. Mike Minor had surgery to this week and will be out for the season. Also, Chris Johnson and Kelly Johnson are both on the DL. Chris Johnson was hitting .279 before...

Pirates make baseball history with 4-5-4 triple play

Veteran baseball reporter Tim Kurkjian frequently says one of the great things about the sport is that each time you go to the ballpark, you're liable to see something you've never seen before. Those who attended Saturday's Pirates-Cardinals game in Pittsburgh saw something no one had ever seen before in a major-league game. The Pirates turned a 4-5-4 triple play, the first one in...

Cardinals Use “All Around Game” to Dominate Homestand

Let’s flash back to Monday, April 27th, the first day of the St. Louis Cardinals first extended homestand of 2015. Confirmation came down on Adam Wainwright’s season ending Achilles Heel injury, and Yadier Molina and Jason Heyward were also missing due to injuries.  It was doom and gloom for the N.L. Central division favorites. The Cards lost against Cole Hamels and the Philadelphia...

Despite struggles, Heyward making presence felt

Jason Heyward isn’t off to the best start offensively and may not be producing at the rate he or the Cardinals had hoped for when they acquired him, but that doesn’t mean the right-fielder is flying under the radar. Despite the offensive struggles, Heyward has found other ways to impact the game and he’s doing so on the bases and in the field, he is a Gold Glove outfielder...

No Wainwright, disappointing Heyward, but Cardinals are best team in baseball

The Cardinals weren’t supposed to be the best team in the National League this season. The Nationals were a widely popular pick to win the World Series, with the Dodgers looking like the club most likely to give them a run for the pennant. While most seemed to predict St. Louis would win its third consecutive NL Central title and get to the postseason for the fifth year in a row...

Cardinals: Expecting More From Jason Heyward

As the Cards completed another huge win at home, a 5-0 deficit erasing 10-8 win victory over the visiting Chicago Cubs, a thought entered my mind. Is it okay to start worrying about the bat of Jason Heyward as the season hits the one month mark? Sure it is, as long as fans remember to use cooling trends while doing so. This is still small sample size zone, so it’s important to...

A (Lineup) Change Will Do You Good

Even good things occasionally need a little shake. Before Tuesday’s game with the Phillies, Mike Matheny decided that it was time to mix up the lineup a little bit .  He moved Matt Carpenter out of the leadoff spot and bunched him with the other Matts while moving Jason Heyward down to sixth.  The results, well, whether it was due to the change or the fact they were [...]

One of the first big trades of this past winter was between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Atlanta Braves.

With Cardinals’ ace Adam Wainwright lost for the year, that trade way back in November becomes significantly more meaningful this season. For the...

Does Jason Heyward need to change his approach at the plate?

Jason Heyward isn't exactly off to a blazing start with the Cardinals. The right-fielder is hitting just .193 through 13 games and although the sample size is small, some may still be wondering, when will Heyward start hitting. Well there, are plenty of theories going around right now, but the St. Louis Post-Dispatch things that perhaps Heyward is being too aggressing at the plate...
