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

The St. Louis Cardinals enter spring training as a perennial playoff contender. The team has found success building from within and making smart choices outside of the organization.

There are numerous...

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...

‘It’s Gotta Be The Shoes’: Custom Spikes Are All The Rage

Have you ever watched a football game on TV or scrolled through Twitter, seen your favorite athlete rocking a one-of-a-kind pair of kicks and thought — I. Must. Have. Those. Shoes?  You’re not alone. The trend of athletes wearing customized spikes isn’t brand new, but it is exploding and one Miami-based artist — Marcus Rivero — is at the center of the boom, customizing...

Analyzing the center field options for the St. Louis Cardinals

Each year, teams face a variety of questions heading into the season. 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...

Cardinals: 5 players set to exceed expectations in 2015

As I write this in the middle of the last day of January, my emotions can not help but flip to February, which of course brings said emotions to think about one thing: SPRING TRAINING. While the winter months and Hot Stove season is full of fun, nothing is better than when pitchers and catcher report. Not only does it take my mind off the cold weather in St. Louis, but it serves...

St. Louis Cardinals: Five 2015 New Year’s resolutions for fans

I haven’t posted for a while, mainly because of the business of the Christmas season, both personally and professionally.  When you run a business, work can be busy, and when you have a two-year old, family life can be busy and outstanding all at the same time.  I would not change any of it for the world.As 2014 officially draws to an end though, and as I go through my own exercise...

Jay-OK: Jon Jay’s success in 2014

Following a disappointing 2013 that included a dismal postseason, Jon Jay was the whipping boy of many Cardinal fans. The front office recognized a need to improve in center field, and as such, they acquired Peter Bourjos and Randal Grichuk from the Los Angeles Angels in exchange for David Freese and Fernando Salas. Bourjos received every opportunity to lay claim to the center...

TCN Blog 2014 Top Story #14: Centerfield Consistency

Prior to the season, if anyone had forecast consistency in centerfield for the 2014 St. Louis Cardinals, they probably would have been referring to Peter Bourjos, not Jon Jay. Last November, the St. Louis Cardinals made a major trade with the Los Angeles Angels. Dealing away 2011 World Series hero David Freese was hard for many fans to take. Others focused on the promise of biggest...

St. Louis Cardinals Roundtable: What’s your lineup?

For week 2 of the our roundtable discussions, I asked Cardinal Nation to form a lineup for Opening Day 2015. It appears the starting 8 is set as Jason Heyward is firmly cemented in right field. Mike Matheny has plenty to work with when it comes to filling out the lineup. He has several options for the top of the lineup and has several left-handed hitters to fit in the order. Here...

St. Louis Cardinals Should Splurge to Acquire Andrew Miller

Trendy predictions about the Hot Stove season for the St. Louis Cardinals have them deep in the market for a power hitter, but those picks might end up similar to the preseason picks that always have the Toronto Blue Jays in the playoffs. Toronto now holds the longest playoff drought in Major League Baseball at 21 years after the Kansas City Royals broke their record-setting, 29...

Giants win third pennant in five years after walk off homer

The San Francisco Giants are heading back to the World Series for the third time in five years following a thrilling, absurd 6-3 win over the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 5 of the NLCS.

Cardinals 3, Dodgers 1: Bullpen implodes (again), season on the line

We all knew the bullpen was going to be an issue in the playoffs, and we really shouldn’t be surprised. Yet, the bullpen put the Dodgers in a 2-1 series deficit with a subpar performance. Scott Elbert – you remember him, right? – came into the game in the seventh inning of a 1-1 game to face Yadier Molina, Jon Jay and Kolten Wong. Naturally, Molina led off with a double, followed...
