Pujols willing to DH more, but still loves glove

Spend enough time around Albert Pujols and you'll probably hear the name Jose Oquendo a lot. Oquendo is a former Major League middle infielder who has spent the last 16 years as the Cardinals' third-base coach. More to the point, he is the man who taught Pujols to value defense. To work on it, to take pride in it, to separate it from bad at-bats and to use it as a means to impact...

3 Championships in 5 Years: I Only Asked For One In My Lifetime

As a die-hard San Francisco Giants fan, I grew up with my share of disappointments. Any Giants fan who grew up in the 1980’s like I did knows exactly what I mean when I list the following names: Jose Oquendo, Terry Steinbach, Salomon Torres, Neifi Perez, Scott Spiezio and Jose Cruz Jr. None of those guys received a Hall of Fame vote after they retired.

McNeal: Don't blame Oquendo for Cards' 3-2 loss to the Mets

Don't blame third-base coach Jose Oquendo for the Cardinals' 3-2 loss to the Mets Wednesday night. Yes, his decision to send home Matt Carpenter backfired on the Cardinals.
