Making the case for Tommy Pham, again

Almost a year ago, I wrote “Could Tommy Pham be the answer in center?” It wasn’t a very popular opinion at the time because Pham was somewhat of an unknown to Cardinals fans. He was having a pretty solid season and was staying healthy, something he hasn’t been good at in his career. Things changed in late July when Pham was shelved for the remained of the 2013 season, a...

Poll: Which St. Louis Cardinals draftee are you most excited about?

The St. Louis Cardinals made their 42 selections last week and had some intriguing selections. While their draft wasn’t filled with high upside athletes who would probably struggle at the plate in the minor leagues, they did get a few quick movers and high upsiders. With this week’s poll question, we ask, which draft pick excites you the most? Here are your choices. Luke Weaver...

The Oscar Taveras watch continues. As the Cardinals start a seven game stretch next week on the road of American League ballparks, it’s possible they’ll call up a prospect from Memphis for the DH spot in the lineup. They re-called an outfielder from Memphis earlier today. No, not Oscar Taveras. The Cardinals promoted Randal Grichuk and sent down Shane Robinson to Memphis. This...

Cardinals roster move: Grichuk and Suga Shane trade places

ST. LOUIS -- A scout at Busch Stadium said the other day that Shane Robinson's bat speed is down so much he looks like he's swinging underwater. The scout apparently wasn't the only one to notice. The Cardinals sent Robinson back to Class AAA Memphis on Friday and recalled outfielder Randal Grichuk, the team announced Friday afternoon. Robinson went 3 for 13 since being...

Carlos Martinez’s 2014 Season Coming Off The Rails

There’s no sugarcoating it – brutal loss for Carlos Martinez and the Cardinals to open a four game set with the San Fransisco Giants. After pitching 7 innings and giving up 3 runs, Jamie Garcia was in line for the win. In only his 3rd start of the season, this was an encouraging outing. And one that hopefully kick-starts his 2014 campaign. Martinez came in for the 8th and surrendered...

How can the Cardinals upgrade their bench?

The Cardinals bench leaves a lot to be desired.  As a team, the Cardinals subs are hitting just .198 with a .555 OPS. Other than backup catcher Tony Cruz, who is hitting .292, and Jon Jay, who is hitting .279 while splitting time in center with Peter Bourjos (.210), the Cardinals have gotten little or no production from their bench.Other than those two, the Cards do not have anyone...

Robinson sparks Cards' sweep of D'backs

The Cardinals, who were fodder for many an opposing lefthander a year ago despite winning 97 games, tried to allay that in the offseason by acquiring more righthanded hitting in Jhonny Peralta and Peter Bourjos. But, before Thursday night, they were still just 3-7 in games started by opposition lefthanders and they hadn’t swept a series all season. They didn’t exactly ravage...

Here’s To You, Mr. Robinson

There are times where Mike Matheny proves that he just might know a thing or two about managing the Cardinals. When I saw that Shane Robinson was in the starting lineup yesterday, I was less than enthused.  Robinson’s a nice player and all, but he’s never done much at the major league level even though he was just destroying Memphis when he was called up.  Given the fact that...
