St. Louis Cardinals: What we learned in June

The St. Louis Cardinals (51-27) finished the month of June much the same way they started, owning the best record in Major League Baseball. However, a number of issues cropped up along the way, and will be prominent points of emphasis as the 2015 campaign approaches its halfway point. Whatever these issues will be for the Cardinals, it is important that they handle them quickly...

Cardinals: First Baseman Struggles Continue

Well, it’s July 4th and the St. Louis Cardinals, despite their four game losing streak, lead the Pittsburg Pirates by six games. It’s a comfortable lead, but the Birds on the Bat are trudging through the dog days of July and it’s no time for them to become complacent. The injury bug has hit the Cardinals hard this season: Adam Wainwright, Matt Adams, Matt Holliday, Jordan Walden...

Cardinals: Tommy Pham gets a shot

It finally happened. The St. Louis Cardinals recalled outfielder Tommy Pham from Triple-A Memphis ahead of Friday’s game against the San Diego Padres, and I couldn’t be happier for the guy. Pham has been on fire since his return from the quadriceps strain that kept him out earlier in the season. The 27-year old has hit .338 with 5 homers and 21 RBI for the Memphis Redbirds, including...

Cardinals Forgot To Pack Bats For Minnesota

The more things change, the more they stay the same. With all the news this week around the Cardinals, it’s easy to forget that they’re still playing games. But Wednesday night they made a rare Minneapolis appearance and trotted out the same tired tropes that have plagued the team over the past few years. Light hitting? Check. Wong, Carpenter and Peralta (batting 1-2-3) combined...

Royals Runs Don’t Turn Out in Shutout by the Cards

  The first inning is usually his “trouble inning.” Tonight, it was the second inning that did him in, which would ultimately be enough to beat the Royals for game one of the series. Through 1.2 innings, Yordano Ventura looked like he was finally going to have a quality start. He fooled us all when he failed to record the third out before allowing the Cardinals to score...

St. Louis Cardinals trade rumors: outfield edition

The St. Louis Cardinals will be glad to return home Friday night as they host the Kansas City Royals for a weekend I-70 Series.

Grichuk could cut into Jay's playing time for Cardinals

ST. LOUIS (AP) Jon Jay was the St. Louis Cardinals' center fielder and primary leadoff man when he went on the 15-day disabled list with a wrist injury. When he returns, likely Friday, it might be more of a job share due to the emergence of Randal Grichuk. The 23-year-old Grichuk, acquired from the Los Angeles Angels after the 2013 season, is batting .308 in limited duty and been...

Cardinals: Running With Bourjos is Right

Disclaimer: I am a Jon Jay guy and always have been.I’ve taken flack for loving Jay’s ability to hit for average, get on base and do what was needed for the Cards since he first arrived. Having said that, it’s a pleasant surprise to see Peter Bourjos finally get a chance to shine and play some center field. Bourjos is also getting some swings in the leadoff spot, a place he...
