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...

Free Agent Frenzy: Giants' Heston still widely available

Before you run out to pick up Blue Jays 1B/OF Chris Colabello, you should probably know that his BABIP (Batting Average on Balls in Play) is a ridiculous .682. Not a good .350. Not a head-shaking .400. Not even an eye-popping .450. SIX-EIGHTY-TWO! That is possibly the most guaranteed "he'll slow down" number in the history of baseball. With that out of the way ... here's this season...

St. Louis Cardinals: 5 Potential Breakout Candidates to Watch in Spring Training

Jon Jay is quite a bargain

There are times when emotions run smack into reality. And this post is one of those times. I have never been a big fan of Jon Jay of the St Louis Cardinals. I didn't think he was a bad player. He simply felt like an obstacle from others getting to play that I thought were better. In 2012 and 2013, I felt that Jay got in the way of Shane Robinson.  Last year, I felt he got in...

This spring, the Cardinals have a lot of interesting stories to watch, including which pitchers will be healthy and effective, who can win the utility infielder role, and whether or not Jason Heyward‘s power will return with a different spot in the lineup.The question I’m most interested in, however, is the...

Why the St Louis Cardinals should trade Jon Jay

For the type of player he is, Jon Jay’s journey as a big leaguer has had more contention than it reasonably should. A pretty humble guy, Jay doesn’t draw attention to himself. He’s not overly flashy. The St. Louis Cardinals centerfielder just seems to go about his business regardless of what’s happening around him. But for someone whose personality attracts little controversy...
