The five best and five worst GMs in baseball

What makes a general manager a “good” general manager? Is it a willingness to take risks? An emphasis on sabermetrics? Or the discipline to hold the line, be patient, and trust a process? It could be any of those things; conversely, all of those things can also make a GM a “bad” one. It’s a fine line to walk. With that in mind, who are some of the best and worst GM’s...

Seeking power, Cardinals won't mind strikeouts

ST. LOUIS (AP) The St. Louis Cardinals are prepared to live with the swings and misses, knowing that when Mark Reynolds connects the ball really travels. They have lacked a power bat off the bench, or power anywhere for that matter, and Reynolds also could platoon with Matt Adams at first base. Manager Mike Matheny promises he won't have batting coach John Mabry tinker too much...

Proactive Cardinals Lock Up Invaluable Asset In Lynn

The Cardinals proved themselves to be proactive once again in keeping their own in tow by forgoing the arbitration process with pitcher Lance Lynn. As opposed to letting a negotiator set the tone for their future with the 27-year-old right-hander, the club bought out his full stretch of arbitration eligible seasons to the tone of a three year deal that could reach a maximum amount...

Arbitration Is A Four-Letter Word

Whatever the reason, John Mozeliak was a man possessed yesterday.  If you were standing close enough to him, it’s possible that you would have gotten an arbitration-avoiding contract as well.  Three of the four players eligible for arbitration settled yesterday, leaving only Jon Jay unsigned. It wouldn’t be a shock if he came to terms [...]

Internet Reactions To Lance Lynn’s Contract With St. Louis Cardinals

The St. Louis Cardinals came to terms with Lance Lynn on a 3-year contract worth $22 million plus incentives. The deal buys out the three arbitration years left for the hurler. It provides cost certainty to the club and financial security to the pitcher. Overall, very few writers criticized the deal as it seemed to be one that worked well for both sides.

‘Preemptive’ approach is smart for St. Louis Cardinals

December 2014 has been one of the most active months of a Major League Baseball offseason in recent memory and followed a similarly packed trade deadline five months earlier. However, the St. Louis Cardinals have benefitted by staying out of the mix in both instances. While teams such as the Los Angeles Dodgers, San Diego Padres and Miami Marlins have made a flurry of moves to remake...

St Louis Cardinals: A recap of the 2014 MLB Winter Meetings

St. Louis Cardinals General Manager John Mozeliak attended the 2014 MLB Winter Meetings in San Diego, but had plenty of time to visit the San Diego Zoo or play a round of 18 holes (if that’s his thing) or enjoy the beautiful December weather. That is because him and his staff were not very busy this week. While several all-stars were traded, the Cardinals made one minor move.In...

SAN DIEGO -- John Mozeliak has made clear the Cardinals' top priority for the remainder of the off-season: A productive, right-handed power hitter coming off the bench. To which I say: Good luck.

A look at the new Cardinals on what could be a pretty firm spring roster

ST. LOUIS -- The search for that elusive right-handed slugger to provide power off the bench continues. Other than that, the Cardinals could be done reshaping their roster for 2015. Of course, that could change with the blip of a text message because if general manager John Mozeliak is anything, he is opportunistic. "My favorite word," he said. But based on what else Mozeliak said...

St. Louis Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak has already shown this offseason that he plans on being aggressive.  The only proof you need is that he traded a prized, 23-year old, cost controlled pitcher for an outfielder that is looking at heading for free agency in the near future with no guarantee that he will re-sign with the Cardinals. Surprisingly, even after the big trade...
