But for this moment… your 2015 St. Louis Cardinals!

2015 MLB Preview: National League Central Edition

Last year in the National League Central, the St. Louis Cardinals and Pittsburgh Pirates finished the season almost neck and neck. While very similar to the NL East, the Chicago Cubs and Cincinnati Reds had very different seasons while winning nearly the same amount of games. The Cubs are a team looking to build into the future, while the Reds look like a team that needs to start...

McNeal: Pitchers need to achieve these stats to lead Cardinals' playoff push

ST. LOUIS -- Winning 90 games should be enough to put the Cardinals in the postseason for the fifth straight year. Who knows if they again can get there, but I do know if enough of their pitchers and position players can finish with the numbers I've assigned to them, the Cardinals will not be heading home at least until mid-October. Matt Belisle: 60 outings or fewer. With an average...

No one is singing Cardinals Nation praises louder than newcomer Belisle

ST. LOUIS -- Baseball does not have a rule requiring players acquired by the Cardinals to call Cardinals fans the best in baseball and pledge there's no team they'd rather work for than the one at Busch Stadium. But it often seems that way. Heck, even Bud Selig joined the chorus the other night when he called St. Louis "the best baseball town in America" at the St. Louis Baseball...

Cardinals' shopping list is shorter, even without new additions

SAN DIEGO -- When the offseason began, the Cardinals were planning to shop for a lefty reliever and pursue an upgrade at backup catcher. But they have crossed those items off their already-short to-do list. That comes with the ubiquitous caveat that stuff happens, but based on general manager John Mozeliak's remarks Monday afternoon at the Winter Meetings, things already have changed...

Non-tenders who should be on the Cardinals’ radar

As the deadline to tender contracts to players not under guaranteed deals passed, the St. Louis Cardinals parted with utility infielder Daniel Descalso. With the depth the team has amassed in the range of backup infielders, the defending NL Central Champs could afford to let Descalso pursue employment elsewhere. On the other side of the coin, teams around the league have let go of...

A look at the new Cardinals on what could be a pretty firm spring roster

ST. LOUIS -- The search for that elusive right-handed slugger to provide power off the bench continues. Other than that, the Cardinals could be done reshaping their roster for 2015. Of course, that could change with the blip of a text message because if general manager John Mozeliak is anything, he is opportunistic. "My favorite word," he said. But based on what else Mozeliak said...
