Poll Results: Who should be the Cardinals 5th outfielder?

This week, I asked Cardinal Nation who they thought should be the Cardinals 5th outfielder to open the regular season. The two options were off to really hot starts as Randal Grichuk has a couple of home runs and Tommy Pham leads the team in hits. Judging by what I had been hearing, I thought this was going to be a close race, and boy was I right.Here are the poll results: Take...

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...

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...

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...
