John Lackey, Mike Matheny clear the air

  John Lackey wasn't exactly thrilled when he was removed from Tuesday's game, but the pitcher and the manager have since had a talk and resolved the difference of opinion, according to Cardinals.com. “He gets where I am coming from,” Lackey told Cardinals.com. “I get where he's coming from.” Matheny called on Peter Bourjos to pinch-hit for Lackey and both parties said that...

Tuesday Links: Sox still waiting for deadline deal to pan out

Photo by Kelly O’Connor, sittingstill.smugmug.com The most intriguing trade that the Red Sox made during the 2014 trade deadline is now perhaps the one they most regret. In a deal with the St. Louis Cardinals, Boston shipped the newly revived starter John Lackey to the National League, in exchange for young pitcher Joe Kelly and veteran offensive threat Allen Craig. Kelly was...

Cardinals have been tough for Harvey; road has been rough for Lackey

Teams don't often get the better of Matt Harvey. Only one has beaten him twice. He'll try to knock off the St. Louis Cardinals for the first time in his career Monday night when they visit the New York Mets. Harvey (5-1, 2.31 ERA) is looking for his first victory in three starts overall after winning his first five, though he's hardly been at fault for the brief drought. He's been...

And Starring Clay Buchholz as John Lackey or Jake Peavy

Remember those torturous games that Lackey and Peavy used to pitch for us, where they’d give their all and hold the opposing team to a few measly runs only to watch our offense rendered impotent? Last night, Clay Buchholz channeled those awesome but ultimately frustrating performances. For eight strong he held the Mariners to three hits and one run while striking out 11, but our...

Lackey, Cardinals prepare to battle reigning -- but reeling -- Cy Young winner

Corey Kluber is already on an impressive list as a Cy Young Award winner. Failing to get a win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday would put Kluber atop a dubious one among those peers as he tries once more for his first victory of 2015. Kluber is the third reigning Cy Young Award winner to go winless in his first seven starts the following season, joining Frank Viola (1989...

Red Sox miss John Lackey in more ways than one

Bill Foley (@Foles74)Contributing Writer There is no debate over which team has benefitted more from last year’s trade-deadline deal between the Red Sox and Cardinals. The Red Sox sent John Lackey, the winner of two deciding World Series games, to St. Louis for outfielder Allen Craig and Joe Kelly on July 31, 2014.

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...

John Lackey’s big day leads Cardinals to 5-1 win over Cubs

For the first time this season, Matt Carpenter was out of the starting lineup. Matt Holliday was also out of the starting lineup.That was probably a good strategy, because Carpenter(0-13) and Holliday (1-5) were a combined 1-28 against the Cubs starting pitcher this afternoon, Jake Arrieta.But it wasn’t just Carpenter and Holliday, as Arrieta entered today’s game with just an...

Lackey, Cardinals looking to end long home stand with series win over Cubs

After blowing leads in each of the first two games in the series, the Chicago Cubs finally held off the rival St. Louis Cardinals. Jake Arrieta will try to give the Cubs a split in this four-game set by adding to his dominance over the Cardinals on Thursday. Expected to contend for a playoff spot after years of rebuilding, Chicago (14-12) showed that it still has some work to do...

Pirates try to salvage a game in St. Louis

Do we have to talk about yesterday’s game? One of my least favorite 2014 memories was the carbon-copy back-to-back walkoff losses the Pirates had in St. Louis in the early summer, one on a Matt Adams walkoff homer and one on a Kolten Wong walkoff homer. We’re barely into the 2015 season at all and the Pirates have already created a stomach-churning counterpart to that. After...

Daily Pitcher Duels: May 2

Cardinals take on worst-in-majors Phillies to begin long home stand

John Lackey was hit hard in his latest start and, unsurprisingly, it came on the road. Three starts into his first full season in St. Louis, a trend that began immediately upon arriving there at last season's trade deadline is again taking form. His home starts have been great. His road work has been terrible. The next comes Monday night at Busch Stadium against the Philadelphia...

Where has all of the Cardinals pitching depth gone?

There was a time, not so long ago, that the Cardinals were the envy of General Managers everywhere for their pitching depth.  You think your team has good pitching depth?  We had 3 guys who can throw 95+ mph (Shelby Miller, Joe Kelly and Trevor Rosenthal) vying for our 5th starter spot in 2013.Now, with the expectation that Adam Wainwright will miss the rest of the season with...

With stuff that 'just keeps getting better,' Cardinals' Lackey takes on Nats

Quality starting pitching has been the catalyst behind hot stretches for both the Washington Nationals and St. Louis Cardinals and produced a seemingly predictable low-scoring series opener. Doug Fister and John Lackey hope to continue the trend. Fresh off ending St. Louis' winning streak, the Nationals send Fister to the hill seeking their sixth victory in seven tries Wednesday...

Lackey wants an extension, but do the Cards?

Getting John Lackey for just over $500,000 is certainly a bargain for the 2015 Cardinals. Not often does a pitcher of Lackey's caliber pitch at such a discounted rate, but due to some language in Lackey's contract, St. Louis is getting a great deal.However, that discounted rate only helps the 2015 Cardinals and does not take the future into account.According to Viva El Birdos, "...
