Sunday's 18-inning marathon forced Cardinals manager Mike Matheny to move every starter up a day. However, that will not include Carlos Martinez, who finished out the game.

St. Louis Cardinals fans, meet the new gun in town. Sam Tuivailala, converted shortstop and the potential late inning ace bandage wrap to the bullpen. Here is a 22 year old kid with all kinds of weapons at his disposal, with the sharpest tool being a pair of pitches that can get hitters out.

Did Mets Save Their Season Sunday?

Let’s assume the Mets find their way into October. If so, they might look at Sunday as a watershed moment to their season. The Mets outlasted St. Louis 3-1 in 18 innings, but played poorly enough offensively to lose three games. Their hitters struck out 15 times, went 1-for-26 with runners in scoring position and stranded 25 runners. There was a time this afternoon when I thought...

Bruised and battle-tested, Cardinals still own MLB's best record

ST. LOUIS -- Bruised and battle-tested, the St. Louis Cardinals watched their division lead dwindle to two games entering the All-Star break. They still have the best record and stingiest staff in the major leagues -- and hopes of some reinforcements. The Cardinals anticipate getting Matt Holliday back from the 15-day disabled list, too, just in time for their return series against...

Scott Boras Now Managing The St. Louis Cardinals, I Guess

It was a rough week for Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal. After mowing through the first 87 games of the season, Rosey had a blip on Saturday night before going full-meltdown on Sunday Night Baseball. Not the way he (or we) wanted to wrap the half-season before his first All-Star Game. Hope there’s nothing wrong with #26… Because at least one person thinks that the team and...

Cardinals: Tommy Pham gets a shot

It finally happened. The St. Louis Cardinals recalled outfielder Tommy Pham from Triple-A Memphis ahead of Friday’s game against the San Diego Padres, and I couldn’t be happier for the guy. Pham has been on fire since his return from the quadriceps strain that kept him out earlier in the season. The 27-year old has hit .338 with 5 homers and 21 RBI for the Memphis Redbirds, including...
