Does Cardinals manager Mike Matheny trust his bullpen?

One week into the season, you get the sense that Cardinals manager Mike Matheny does not trust his entire bullpen.In the first 7 games, Matheny has leaned heavily on holdovers Trevor Rosenthal (3 games), Carlos Martinez (4 games), Pat Neshek (4 games) and Kevin Siegrist (5 games). However, rubber-armed LOOGY Randy Choate has appeared in just 2 games, while last year's ground...

St. Louis Cardinals: Bullpen off to shaky start to season

I realize the St. Louis Cardinals came away from rain drenched Cincinnati with a pair of wins after defeating the Reds 7-6 on a long Thursday afternoon.I realized that the facet of the Cardinals game most are concerned about is the offense, despite the seven-run outburst on Thursday. The combined one run in the team's first two contests is still fresh in the memories of most...

Cardinals New Plan: Tire Other Guys Out

We thought the Cardinals would just kind of out-talent other teams in 2014.  Turns out the new plan is just to get everyone so much scoring in Spring Training that they just are tired of it before the regular season starts. Matheny! Dude is MANAGING! On Sunday, the Nationals touched up Joe Kelly for 5 earned runs and Seth Maness for another 3 before surrendering...

Seth Maness is Better Than You May Think

Cardinals’ fans are very excited about Michael Wacha next year. For all of the talk about what Wacha did last year, and much of it was justified, Seth Maness quietly put together as good of a season and is just as an exciting prospect moving forward. First to start with their minor league stats, Wacha rocketed through A+ ball and AA, pitching just 8 innings in each. All 8 innings...

Time for a Treasure Hunt – Jordan Jankowski

Do you ever wonder if a GM sits around in the 34th round thinking “please let this guy fall to me”?  How do you even go about finding treasures in the late rounds?  How do you scout a 16 yr old latin american player and say “this kid is special”?  In the “Time for a Treasure Hunt” series i will try to highlight lesser known prospects who are worth keeping an eye on...

Too much pitching? Yeah, kinda -- so who figures to be in Cards' 2014 rotation?

ST. LOUIS -- Whoever said a team never can have too much pitching was not thinking about the Cardinals in 2014. While many clubs have trouble putting together one solid rotation, the Cardinals feature enough depth to field two five-man rotations, and the second one would not be an embarrassment. Think about it: Adam Wainwright, Michael Wacha, Shelby Miller, Joe Kelly and Lance...

Cardinals ponder next pitching moves

Of all the rookies who contributed to the Cardinals’ arms race for a National League pennant and World Series appearance, arguably the most dominant of them all wasn’t a starter. He just wants to be one. Trevor Rosenthal, who inherited the closer role on the eve of the postseason, pitched a scoreless eighth inning Wednesday night at Fenway Park to complete his October without...

Lynn upset about being pulled early from Game 4

Judging by the way St. Louis Cardinals right-hander Lance Lynn stormed off the mound when he was taken out in the sixth inning of Game 4 on Sunday night, you thought steam might be coming out of his ears. "It's the World Series," he said. "If you don't want to pitch in the World Series, you can go right home." One batter after Lynn was taken out, he...

Cards Skip a Chance to Turn a Superstar Human

We begin with some acknowledgements. First, a baseball game is never entirely won or lost based on a single event, a single match-up. Certain events can be of massive importance, but they’re massive because of the context, and the context is established by other events, that would’ve led to different outcomes given different outcomes. So many different things contribute to a...

World Series GM4: 'It Is OK'

Maybe it was the strong desire to clinch the World Series at home.  Maybe it was just the sheer improbability of a pick-off ending a World Series game the night after an obstruction of the base paths did the same. Maybe, just maybe, the need to be in the front of the line with a #HotSportsTake is even more urgent in October. But damn. People are going CRAY. Just because...

Jonny Gomes Crushes Three-Run Home Run Off Seth Maness to Give Sox Lead in Game 4 (Video)

There was nothing intangible about this blast from Jonny Gomes in the top of the sixth inning. The Red Sox outfielder was a late addition to the Game 4 lineup, inserted only after Shane Victorino was ruled out because of lower back tightness just prior to first pitch, but Gomes made sure he took full advantage of his starting opportunity.
