Getting to know Marlins reliever Kyle Barraclough

Not much was known about the minor leaguer the Miami Marlins received for former closer Steve Cishek prior to the trade deadline. Right-hander Kyle Barraclough wasn't ranked among the St. Louis Cardinals' top prospects in a stacked farm system. The 25-year-old reliever from Santa Clara, California, attended St. Mary's College of California. He was taken in the seventh round of the...

Can the Cardinals be stopped in the Central Division?

It’s funny. Every time St. Louis Cardinals fans seem to think the Redbirds are slowing down or starting to finally tail off and self destruct, they fire off a short winning streak where they restore order to the well breed machine. After dropping two disgusting games to the lowly San Diego Padres out west, the Birds have fired off four wins in a row, outscoring the opponent 27...

St. Louis Cardinals: Recapping the trade deadline

After weeks of rumors, the trade deadline officially passed yesterday. The St. Louis Cardinals have been dealing with injury after injury to their higher caliber players, but managed to avoid trading away the farm for a two month replacement.

Elite Cards bullpen has set high standard for stretch run, postseason

How tough has the St. Louis Cardinals bullpen been this season?
