Welcome to Baseball Heaven: Cardinals making most of time at home

The surging St. Louis Cardinals have the majors' best record and are in the midst of baseball's best home start since division play began in 1969.

Atlanta Braves: Three best offseason trades

The Atlanta Braves had one of the most active offseasons in Major League Baseball, with many of their moves helping them build for the future. Although these moves are centered on the future, many of the moves have helped the Braves this season as well. These are my top three moves that the Braves made this offseason. 1. Jason Heyward and Jordan Walden for Shelby Miller and Tyrell...

That Was Fun

X gon give it to you: This is fun… — Xavier Scruggs (@Xavier_Scruggs) June 29, 2015 Couldn’t have said it better, Mr. Scruggs. This is, that was, indeed, fun. I’d even be willing to escalate that to ‘very fun’ or ‘real fun’ if you’re so inclined. What was the most fun? Jason Heyward basically ran a mile and a half to catch this fly ball. #Cardinals pic.twitter...

Heyward, Scruggs stay hot as Cardinals' offense explodes for win

ST. LOUIS -- When the Cardinals needed someone to pick up their offense, Jason Heyward and Xavier Scruggs stepped up to the challenge.

They provided some of the most significant at-bats in an 8-1 rout of the Cubs that extended St. Louis' winning streak to six games. Heyward...

St. Louis Cardinals: Too much rallying?

Stop me if you’ve heard this before: the St. Louis Cardinals (49-24)  pulled out another win after trailing late in a game. This time against the Cubs, an unlikely hero emerged in Greg Garcia, who hit his first major league home run to tie the game in the 8th. The Redbirds would then load the bases up for Jhonny Peralta, who would drive in Peter Bourjos for the winning run in...

Breaking Down a Weird Season for Nick Markakis

View image | gettyimages.com Going into this season, most in and around the league thought that the Braves would not produce many runs, what with the departure of Justin Upton, Evan Gattis, and Jason Heyward. Atlanta’s only major signing in the off-season was picking up Nick Markakis for $44 million over the next 4 years. In his past 4 seasons with the Orioles, Markakis has...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Friday, Jun 26

Yesterday’s Official Lineup got some late changes for two reasons: The weather in the CIN@PIT game started to look a little poorer than I’d hoped (the game started under a one hour delay) Starling Marte wasn’t playing For those two reasons I decided to remove most of my Pirates and add a couple Cardinals to Kolten Wong and Jason Heyward, who were already in my lineup. Unfortunately...

OPS Leagues: Unleash the Kraken!

The Kraken of 06010 fame, Jason Heyward, has erupted. Heyward has gone 12-for-24 this past week with an eye popping 1.478 OPS. He has homered in three consecutive games, going 1-for-3 with a dinger and 3 RBI last night. Heyward has had some unfair comparisons thrown his way early in his career, even picking up the outrageously unfair “J-Hey Kid” nickname in his rookie season...

Jennings calls upon Marlins to stop trying to be heroes at the plate

Both the Miami Marlins and the St. Louis Cardinals had seven hits in their game on Wednesday, yet the Cardinals won handily. With timely home runs from Kolten Wong and Jason Heyward, the Cardinals scored six runs.

Prospect Pulse: Touki Toussaint, John Hart’s Latest Coup

The Atlanta Braves were supposed to be a terrible baseball team this year. With the trades of Craig Kimbrel, Jason Heyward, Evan Gattis, and Justin Upton, just to name the big ones, even the most ardent Braves fans were expecting a full rebuild. Nearly halfway through the season, however, Atlanta finds themselves a mere three games out of first place in a weak NL East division. Sure...

St Louis Cardinals: Offense wakes up in Philly

Maybe a series against the basement-dwelling Phillies was what the Cardinals offense needed to liven up. The St. Louis bats, having struggled to score runs for months, feasted on Phillies pitching over the weekend, posting back-to-back double-digit scoring efforts for the first time all season after not scoring in double digits since May 19. The 12 runs they put up on Friday marked...

Cardinals' Heyward stays hot

If you look across baseball, it'd be hard to find a hitter that's been hotter than Jason Heyward has been recently. The Cardinals outfielder got off to a slow start this season, but has collected 11 hits in his first 20 at-bats of the current road trip. So what's been the difference? Well, manager Mike Matheny thinks the answer is simple. He thinks Heyward is simply doing what...

Jason Heyward Showing Up At Perfect Time For Cardinals

Jason Heyward was traded to the St. Louis Cardinals this past offseason in exchange for Shelby Miller and Tyrell Jenkins. Heyward, an impending free agent, was supposed  to shore up the hole in right field and provide a versatile weapon in the box. Instead Heyward struggled to hit his stride in St. Louis, slashing a meager .217/.261/.349 in April, while Shelby Miller was  doing...
