A look at the first base depth in the St. Louis Cardinals minor league system

Man, it has been a while since I have tickled the keyboards as I have been dealing with some personal issues, but it feels great to be back, even if it’s a reduced role for now. Before I look at the first base position, I want to say what an incredible team I have here at CardinalsFarm. They picked up the slack while I was gone without hesitation.When looking at the first base...

McNeal: If each position player hits these stat targets, Cardinals will make the playoffs

ST. LOUIS -- With spring training still a few days away, no one knows if the Cardinals will reach the postseason for the fifth straight year. But I know this: They will if each of them can deliver on one stat that is listed below. A point to remember: These numbers all are within reach, based on what they've already accomplished in their pro careers. Matt Adams: 25 homers. To increase...

When it comes to base-running, the Cardinals have plenty of room to improve

ST. LOUIS -- If the Cardinals want to score more runs this season, all they have to do is hit more homers. Obvious, isn't it? They hit only 105 last year, the fewest in the National League and the fewest by a Cardinals team since 1992. With the additions of Jason Heyward and Mark Reynolds, plus an added year of experience for Matt Adams and Kolten Wong, the Cardinals should hit more...

Today, we look at the Cardinals, who were the class of this division and appear to be in a class of their own at the top of the division again in 2015. C View image | gettyimages...

Marco Gonzales: MLB Bullpen or AAA Rotation?

There are lots of interesting questions with spring training two weeks away. Who is playing center field? How many starts will Mark Reynolds get at first base? Who is the real catcher of the future behind Yadier Molina? Where does the lineup settle? Among those, the most intriguing question on my mind is the location of Marco Gonzales in 2015. Let’s say Carlos Martinez secures...

Reynolds brings Cardinals' bench a surge of power and a dash of humor

ST. LOUIS -- Mark Reynolds did not take long to show off a sense of humor with his new team. As the media kept piling into his introductory presser at the Cardinals Winter Warm-Up, Reynolds stood at the podium wondering about the fuss being made. "Hey guys," he said with a smile.

Seeking power, Cardinals won't mind strikeouts

ST. LOUIS (AP) The St. Louis Cardinals are prepared to live with the swings and misses, knowing that when Mark Reynolds connects the ball really travels. They have lacked a power bat off the bench, or power anywhere for that matter, and Reynolds also could platoon with Matt Adams at first base. Manager Mike Matheny promises he won't have batting coach John Mabry tinker too much...

An Examination: Is Mark Reynolds Blind?

October brought us the truthers’ case against Stevie Wonder being blind. It’s an interesting read and some of the points do at least make you bend an eyebrow. But at the end of the day, Mr. Wonder is probably blind. Little did we know, until @Daniel_Doelling pointed it out on Twitter, that a much more interesting story was published nearly 2 years ago examining if Mark Reynolds...

Post Winter-Meetings Outlook: Milwaukee Brewers

The Brewers of 2015 are basically the Brewers of 2014 on paper, outside of Adam Lind now manning first base instead of Mark Reynolds.  Also, Francisco Rodriguez is currently a free-agent. A lot can change though, for better or for worse, and the Brewers weren’t happy to lose their division crown and playoff spot to the St. Louis Cardinals in September. Then again, some think...

St Louis Cardinals: A recap of the 2014 MLB Winter Meetings

St. Louis Cardinals General Manager John Mozeliak attended the 2014 MLB Winter Meetings in San Diego, but had plenty of time to visit the San Diego Zoo or play a round of 18 holes (if that’s his thing) or enjoy the beautiful December weather. That is because him and his staff were not very busy this week. While several all-stars were traded, the Cardinals made one minor move.In...

Reynolds Replaces A Missing Component

If you listened around St. Louis this afternoon after the Cardinals signed veteran bat Mark Reynolds to a one year deal, there wasn’t much optimism in the air. One would think the Cards just signed a guy to a long term deal and dumped a ton of money into him. Many are overthinking this smart [...]
