Lester and the Cubs

This off season, the Chicago Cubs are likely going to target top of the rotation free agent starting pitchers. There is Max Scherzer, Justin Masterson, James Shields, but the one the Cubs are likely going to make their primary target is Jon Lester. I know what some of you are saying. Of course Lester is their primary target, he is a former Boston Red Sox player. The all too famous...

Masterson heads to bullpen for Cardinals

The list of candidates to start Thursday’s Cardinals game at Milwaukee diminished by one Monday when manager Mike Matheny said struggling righthander Justin Masterson will be doing his next pitching out of the bullpen. “We’ve got him in that mindset already,” Matheny said. “When he’ll be actually available to go is still up in the air.” Masterson was in the group...

Somehow, Someway, That All Worked Out For The Cardinals

That could have been a whole lot better. That could have been a whole lot worse. Both things are true as we dig through the rubble of a 2-2 split against a bottom dwelling foe… that somehow vaulted the Cardinals into a first place tie in the NL Central. First the bad news. + The Justin Masterson trade is officially a bust. His ERA with the Cardinals is 7.90 and he’s surrendered...

Masterson considers abandoning windup

When Justin Masterson went to the bullpen at Pittsburgh’s PNC Park on Wednesday to ready for his next start, he and the Cardinals coaches believed a solution for his continued struggles would be found first by asking a question: How could he make everything simpler? The answer is creative, and they’re eager to see if it’s curative. “For the most part, I was pitching out...

Masterson struggles may get bumped from Cardinals’ rotation

After winning a nearly five-hour struggle the night before, the Cardinals had little Sunday for well-traveled Philadelphia Phillies righthander Jerome Willliams. Their own starter, Justin Masterson, had little or nothing for the Phillies either, and the result was a 7-1 loss that cost the Cardinals a chance to clinch a series against second-division opposition. One of the few positives...

Justin Masterson’s Mechanics Are Now AAA-Approved

Leading up to last night’s game, there was talk about how Justin Masterson may have tinkered with his mechanics, trying to improve on two dismal starts in Cardinal red that led folks to wonder if John Mozeliak had lost his touch. Let’s just say Masterson is a pretty darn good tinkerer . Seven scoreless innings on just three hits is not [...]

Justin Masterson, Matt Adams carry Cardinals to 5-2 bounce back win over Marlins

In his first two starts with the Cardinals, Justin Masterson had posted a sloppy 11.25 ERA allowing a total of 10 runs in eight innings of work. Wednesday night in Miami was a completely different story. The Cardinals saw the 2013 All-Star with Cleveland in the final game of this series. Seven shutout innings allowing three hits with no walks and three strikeouts would do the trick...

Justin Masterson Needs Dave Duncan-Like Intervention

St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Justin Masterson followed a mediocre debut with the team August 2 with a horrid performance six days later that showed the Cardinals coaching staff might need to take a page or two out of the book of a previous coach who worked wonders with pitchers in such positions. Pitching coach Dave Duncan followed manager Tony La Russa from the Oakland...

Cardinals fall flat as Orioles put on rout with six home runs in 12-2 win

Justin Masterson got out of a bases loaded, nobody out jam in the Bottom of the 1st. He struck out Nelson Cruz and Chris Davis for back-to-back outs, then got J.J. Hardy to ground out to escape the jam. Would that be a momentum shift in favor of the Cardinals? Um, not exactly. The momentum would swing right back to the Orioles in the Bottom of the 2nd inning. Manny Machado gave the...

Masterson, Cardinals get rocked in Baltimore

When Justin Masterson escaped a no-out, bases-loaded jam in the first inning without allowing a run, the Cardinals looked like they were on their way. Then the exact opposite happened. The Orioles made up for their first-inning failures by slamming six home runs and scoring four, one, three, one and three runs over the next five innings on the way to a 12-2 victory. A.J.

Cardinals have offensive breakthrough to back up Justin Masterson’s debut

Cardinals’ starting pitchers this season haven’t seen much of of what Justin Masterson saw in his Cardinal debut Saturday night vs Milwaukee at Busch Stadium. That would be run support. The Brewers took an early 1-0 lead off the bat of who else, Aramis Ramirez, who singled to score Gerardo Parra. That would be  Milwaukee’s only lead of the night. Manager Mike Matheny almost...
