End of season post-mortem: St. Louis Cardinals

This was such a strange year for the Cardinals. They didn’t clinch the NL Central until the final day of the 2014 season. They didn’t take sole possession of first place until September 1st. Yet, the Cardinals still won 90 games, beat Clayton Kershaw twice in the NLDS, and advanced to the NLCS. For most teams, that end to their season would be considered an accomplishment. For...

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.

Once again, defensive miscues the story as Giants take 3-1 NLCS lead to put Cardinals on brink of elimination

Prior to Wednesday night’s NLCS Game 4 between the Cardinals and the Giants in San Francisco, the Royals were World Series bound after their four game sweep over the Orioles. Kansas City became the first MLB team ever to start the postseason 8-0 and have now won 11 straight postseason games dating back to winning three straight to take the I-70 World Series in 1985. This means...

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...

Cardinals @ Dodgers Oct. 4, 2014: NLDS Game 2, Lynn vs. Greinke

OK, things can’t possibly be worse than last night. The thing that is most baffling is that, despite Mike’s great breakdown earlier today, there was no logical way of explaining the events of Friday.

Better Know A NLDS Opponent: Cardinals Offense

I think maybe I speak for a lot of us when I say that while I’m thrilled to have the Dodgers back in the playoffs, I’m not particularly excited to face the Cardinals again. There’s no shortage of reasons for that, really. There’s the endless “Best Fans in Baseball” business, to the point that even the Wall Street Journal says the Cardinals are the most hateable team in...

With postseason clinched, Lance Lynn, Cardinals look to edge closer to NL Central title tonight

With the Brewers’ 1-0 loss to the Pirates earlier today, the Cardinals have at least clinched a postseason berth of the second National League Wild Card heading into tonight’s series finale with the Reds. The Milwaukee loss officially eliminates them from the NL Central race, where the Cardinals still have work to do to clinch the division. St. Louis currently has a three game...

Will the St. Louis Cardinals finally stick with Jon Jay as a regular starter?

The St. Louis Cardinals have received impressive contributions from a large number of young players who graduated through the team’s farm system in recent years, but none may be more underappreciated than Jon Jay. Jay has been in Major League Baseball for five years now after his debut in 2010 when he hit a solid .300 in 105 games for the last Cardinals team to fail to reach the...

Offense, blown save in 9th can’t back up Lance Lynn as Cardinals fall 3-2 to Brewers in 12

The Cardinals would score two runs in the Bottom of the 1st to take a 2-0 lead. Their two runs scored came without a hit as Matt Adams walked with the bases loaded and nobody out then Jhonny Peralta grounded into a double play, which then scored Jon Jay. Those two runs were just enough for Cardinals’ starter Lance Lynn Tuesday night at Busch Stadium. However, that wouldn’t be...

If you like pitcher’s duels, Thursday afternoon’s series finale between the Reds and Cardinals in Cincinnati was definitely the game for your liking. Lance Lynn vs Johnny Cueto did not disappoint. Lance Lynn was through seven shutout innings only allowing two hits after retiring 15 consecutive batters. Johnny Cueto also had gone seven shutout innings. That was because of Jay...

Jon Jay, Cardinals' second-half MVP? He could well be

Maybe Jon Jay is waiting to tell us, "I told you so." Or maybe he's not that type of guy. Or maybe he knows that little good can come from gloating. At this point, Jay doesn't need to say a word about how he was dismissed by the Cardinals' front office last offseason. He has said far more with his performance than he could with any verbal retort. How's this...

Mike Matheny took issue with Brewers third baseman Hector Gomez on Thursday night

The Cardinals were in position to tack on an insurance run, leading 3-2 in the top of the ninth inning in last night’s game against the Brewers. The bases were loaded with one out for Yadier Molina, who hit a fly ball to medium depth right field. Brewers right fielder Gerardo Parra picked up some momentum and fired a one-hop strike to catcher Martin Maldonado, who tagged out Jon...

Jon Jay, Matt Holliday come through in the 7th to back up John Lackey as Cardinals win 3-2

John Lackey got the start for the Cardinals in the series opener Monday night in Pittsburgh against the Pirates. A newly acquired Cardinals’ pitcher didn’t seem to mind Cardinal killer Pedro Alvarez. Alvarez gave the Pirates a 1-0 lead in the Bottom of the 2nd. That was his 18th home run of the season and his 15th career home run against the Cardinals. But that would be the only...
