Predicting the Opening Day roster of the St. Louis Cardinals

Last year around this time, I tried to predict the opening day rosters of the Cardinals’ four full-season minor league affiliates. This year I am doing the same thing, but also including the big club. When I piece together my rosters, I always start at the top anyway, so it makes sense to add the Cards.I am going to begin with the infield. Here is who I am projecting to make the...

Looking at the third base depth in the St. Louis Cardinals minor league system

As I continue my look at how each position is built within the St. Louis Cardinals organization, we come to a very interesting third base position. The third base position was bolstered a couple of years ago when the Cardinals selected three third basemen with their first six picks.

If there is a Matt in camp this spring that will have plenty of eyes on him, it’s Matt Adams. Carpenter and Holliday are expected to provide a certain potency, but Adams is a wildcard. Who knows what the big man can produce if he gets another 140 games and 520 at bats this year with the Cardinals? Matt Adams has all the pressure in the world on his shoulders, or at least he talks...

Spring Training: My love/hate relationship with the greatest game on earth

I am a baseball fan. Always have been and always will be. Yeah, I can get into football or basketball, but if there is baseball on television, I am watching it. Even if it’s not the Cardinals, which is something my non-sports loving wife can’t grasp. I will watch a Sunday Night Baseball game between the Dodgers and Diamondbacks, and yet she wonders why?“You are not a fan of...

St. Louis Cardinals: Matt Carpenter Stays At The Top

A popular topic in Cardinal Nation and on Twitter is the leadoff spot for the St. Louis Cardinals. Who hits there in the 2015 season? Who deserves it?My answer to the two questions are easy. Matt Carpenter. There is no reason to move the reliable jack of all trades from the perch where he has performed above average during the past two seasons. Every argument loses merit because...

Finding a spot for Matt Carpenter in the St. Louis Cardinals lineup

During the 2014 season, it became apparent that the favorite activity of Cardinals fans was to scrutinize the lineups that manager Mike Matheny would put out on a daily basis. It seemed like every gameday there would be tons of people taking to twitter to offer criticism of the manager’s choice for that day, while some would offer their ideal lineup. For the most part, I decided...
