Elite Cards bullpen has set high standard for stretch run, postseason

How tough has the St. Louis Cardinals bullpen been this season? Consider this: Relievers Mitch Harris and Sam Tuivailala both were recently optioned to Triple-A Memphis (Tuivailala went Tuesday) even though neither of them allowed a run in their last 12 collective appearances, eight by Tuivailala, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. That's some serious relief work, the kind...

The St. Louis Cardinals acquired relief pitcher Steve Cishek from the Miami Marlins in exchange for Double-A pitcher Kyle Barraclough in a deal that went down on Friday afternoon. With the numerous injuries to the Cardinals’ pen this season, including one that recently endured a set back, the move makes sense. The acquisition of Steve will definitely provide some assistance...

“Best record” Cardinals humbled in Pittsburgh

The fateful first half ending road trip ended with three wins and five losses for the St. Louis Cardinals. After splitting in Chicago, the Birds went to PNC Park and lost the last three games before the break to finish 56-33 and just 2.5 games ahead of the Bucs. Losing is one thing. Losing on two consecutive walksoffs is worse. It’s like getting stabbed and pushing the knife in...

Cardinals 3, Dodgers 1: Offense shut down again

Blah game was blah. The Dodgers couldn’t get anything going against the Cardinals’ young fireballer on Sunday afternoon in a 3-1 loss. That’ll happen when you, inexplicably, bat Alberto Callaspo in the No. 2 spot. Joc Pederson accounted for the lone run, as he launched his 13th home run in the eighth inning off Kevin Siegrist — a lefty! Atta boy. The rest of the offense was...

On Sunday morning, St. Louis Cardinals fans received some bad news, as elite set-up man Jordan Walden hit the 15-day disabled list with a strained biceps.

Mozeliak: 'Siegrist is a question mark' heading into spring

ST. LOUIS -- By the end of 2014, Cardinals left-handed reliever Kevin Siegrist had grown so frustrated that he actually was happy to learn he was injured. Now he wasn't thrilled to be left off the postseason roster. Being sent down to Triple A Memphis for a couple of weeks didn't help his mood, either. And that 6.82 ERA certainly didn't bring a smile to his face. But to struggle...
