Rest pays off for introspective Wong in his return in the desert

St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny read the situation perfectly. Kolten Wong needed a break, physically and mentally, from the grind. Matheny gave Wong 2 1/2 days off to recharge and allow the self-confessed harsh self-critic to take a step back and take in the bigger picture. Wong collected a pair of hits in his return, helping the Cardinals to take a second consecutive road...

Kolten Wong: A beauty and a beast 

    Speaking in the terms of an “it factor”, Kolten Wong has got it. From when he positions himself in the field to every time he steps in the left-handed batter’s box, Kolten has this sense of swagger lingering around him. Sometimes, the swagger he has is so conspicuous. Spectators of the ballgame eagerly await for his next turn to bat or for the next ball hit to his area...

Rough night for Lance Lynn and Cardinals, though St. Louis settles for two out of three over Pirates

Jeff Curry / USA Today Sports Well….let’s just say it was a rough night for Lance Lynn. It was a rough night for the Cardinals altogether. The Pirates were in need of a win Thursday night to avoid the sweep against the Cardinals, and they were dangerous right out of the gates. Pittsburgh put up a seven spot in the Top of the 1st inning to take a 7-0 lead. Pedro Alvarez continued...

It’s time to start referring to almost every series as the biggest series of the year again

From the Pirates’ perspective, it seems like nothing they do ever makes up ground on the Cardinals. Sometimes they drop down to eight or nine games back, sometimes they surge to within three or four, but most of the time the Pirates win and win and win and win and sit five or six games behind the Cardinals. From the Cardinals’ perspective, though, the Pirates must be almost as...

St. Louis Cardinals: Bringing back the power

For much of the season, the St. Louis Cardinals have struggled with run production. Despite having the major’s best record for a majority of the season, the Redbirds have struggled to provide run support for several superb outings by their pitching staff. Eventually, the bottom was sure to fall out on a team that lived and died by their pitchers. Despite continued struggles with...

How do you fix an average inconsistent Cardinals offense?

The St. Louis Cardinals have had some great runs offensively in 2015 and have had some difficulty scoring runs at other times in 2015. Post-trade deadline (at least the non-waiver trade deadline), there is little that can be done to “fix” an order, whether it needs it or not. Early on, from games 3-10, the Cardinals scored between 4 and 7 runs per game, averaging 4.75 runs per...

St. Louis Cardinals trade rumors: Revisiting first base edition

While the St. Louis Cardinals (56-31) have the best record in baseball, they sure haven’t been playing like it recently. Phenomenal pitching has kept the Redbirds in games throughout the season, but the batting order simply has not had the ability score runs. A major reason for that is injury, as Matt Adams and Matt Holliday have seen extensive time away, and others like Matt Carpenter...
