Kozma back into the Cardinals' starting lineup for Game 4

ST. LOUIS -- Pete Kozma is no Carlos Beltran or David Freese when it comes to post-season heroics but, like his celebrated teammates, the rookie shortstop has a knack for rising to the occasion this time of year. As a result, Kozma is back into the Cardinals' starting lineup for Monday afternoon's NLDS Game 4 even though the Pirates are starting a right-hander, Charlie Morton...

Old Hoss previews Pirates-Cardinals

Editor's note: Old Hoss Radbourn might be the best pitcher in baseball history that you have never heard of. And rightfully so, since he pitched in the late 1800s . The Hall of Famer put up legendary numbers in his 11-year career, with his best season coming in 1884 when he pitched the last 27 games for the Providence Grays. He won 26 of those outings and then picked up three...

Video: Ryan Zimmerman breaks up Michael Wacha's no-hitter with 2 outs in the 9th thanks to Pete Kozma

And this is what Nats fans have been reduced to: celebrating watching your team not get no-hit. Up above, Ryan Zimmerman hits a chopper past Michael Wacha and beats a (bad) throw by Pete Kozma to end Wacha's no-hit bid with two outs in the ninth. Thank you, Pete Kozma! Cardinals fans immediately began calling for Kozma's head on Twitter, poor guy (see @BestFansStLouis). Video...

Time For Kozma To Be Benched & The Friday Links

Pete Kozma has 86 hits in 2013.  That includes 19 doubles, 1 home run and 34 RBIs. After watching 153 Cardinal games, I'm just not sure this happened. Even taking into account bathroom breaks, falling asleep for west coast games and general drunken memory loss, I'm having a hard time placing even 1 hit, let along 86. Hell, he even has videos on YouTube of people...

Rockies outlast Cardinals in 15, 7-6

The Colorado Rockies intentionally walked Yadier Molina with one out and runners on first and third to load the bases for Kozma. Batting against Rob Scahill, Kozma grounded into a double play. Corey Dickerson's RBI triple with one out in...

Cardinals September hitting equals Kozma’s season

While the St. Louis Cardinals still have a historically good full-season mark in batting average with runners in scoring position, the fact is that there have been precious few runners on base to drive in during September. A prime indication that the Cards’ bats have been in a deep slumber is a combined September batting average of just .217. As researcher Tom Orf points out in...

Pete Kozma is the new Yadier Molina?

This Labor Day weekend I was doing what I do pretty much every weekend during the season, watching baseball. I was listening to Dan McLaughlin and Ricky Horton call a Cardinals/Pirates game, which oftentimes is a chore. Now I realize the play-by-play guys are not there to get too analytical about what’s right and wrong with the Cardinals. I understand they are there to entertain...

St. Louis Cardinals: No more Pete Kozma please

(via TurnersTwist.com) I am glad to see Mike Matheny using Daniel Descalso at short today. In fact, I think it is time to use him and another player (I will tell you who in a minute) even more often. Pete Kozma just doesn’t cut it. I am tired of hearing that Kozma’s defense is why we continue to have to watch in agony every plate appearance. Quite frankly, his defense...

With Descalso knocking on SS door, Matheny clearly has Kozma's back

ST. LOUIS -- High on the list of Mike Matheny's assets as a manager is always having his players' backs. He is widely regarded as a player's manager and his players know he will protect them. What, exactly, this means is a little beyond me. It's not like I've seen Matheny serving as a bodyguard for the Cardinals. But I did come across a telling example this...

Carpenter and Kozma solve Cards' middle-infield dilemma

ST. LOUIS -- During the past offseason, Matt Carpenter was talking with his mom about his future in the major leagues. Though Carpenter enjoyed a strong rookie season with a .365 on-base percentage in 340 plate appearances, his baseball future coming into 2013 was far from secure. No one knew if he could become more than a utilityman in the big leagues. Not even Carpenter. "...
