Cards, Braves have been two of baseball's best since turn of the century

The Atlanta Braves and St. Louis Cardinals have been two of the most successful franchises in baseball, at least during the regular season, since the turn of the century. But while the Cardinals lead all teams with 64 postseason wins (64-57) since 2000, the Braves are just 13-26 in the playoffs over the same period. More recently, however, the Braves seem to have slipped into a pit...

Does Jason Heyward’s recent surge mean he’ll stay in St. Louis?

How about this Jason Heyward fella? Since the end of April, Heyward has been hitting pretty well and given the Cards a boost in right field, a sore spot in 2014. Hey, maybe the St. Louis Cardinals didn’t make a bad trade after all this past November when they picked up Heyward and Jordan Walden and gave up Shelby Miller and Tyrell Jenkins. The 25 year old right fielder had five...

Heyward's five hits pace Cardinals in 12-2 route of Mets

Changing teams not the reason for Shelby Miller's success with Braves

As Atlanta Braves ace Shelby Miller took his first All-Star experience, he wanted to clarify one thing. "The change from St. Louis to Atlanta isn't the reason I'm having success," said Miller, who was dealt to the Braves in an offseason trade that sent Jason Heyward to the Cardinals. "Just because [Adam Wainwright] and Lance Lynn and all those guys there are considered the aces of...

Cardinals: Weak offense leads to fourth straight loss

It’s been a rough week to say the least for the St. Louis Cardinals. On Friday night, it only got worse. St. Louis dropped their fourth straight game in a 2-1 loss to the San Diego Padres, and it wasn’t pretty. The Cardinals managed just four hits for one run, which came on a bases loaded, double-play groundout off the bat of Xavier Scruggs scoring Jason Heyward. The loss can...

Cardinals: Is bunting a game changer?

Ahh, the bunt. The play that never ceases to amaze me when executed under the right circumstances. Do the St. Louis Cardinals execute it correctly? Nowadays, it seems like the only time we see a bunt is when a speedster is at the plate trying to bunt his way onto the base paths. Or, most commonly, when the pitcher is batting with runners on and less than two outs. As I’ve mentioned...

Revisiting The Heyward/Miller Trade…

As you know, in the off-season we traded Jason Heyward for Shelby Miller and Jordan Walden . Thought I’d look back at the trade. Walden’s been injured so I’ll disqualify him and focus on Heyward and Miller. I thought at the time it was a good trade. Unlike many others, I was happy with the guy we got. A good fielding [...]
