Padres-Cardinals Preview

The St. Louis Cardinals should be at the forefront of discussions if baseball entertains the idea of bringing the designated hitter to the NL. Jaime Garcia has been pushed back in the rotation for a second time, giving Tim Cooney the opportunity to make his second major league start Thursday night against the slumping San Diego Padres at Busch Stadium.

Cardinals Facing A Starting Pitcher Dilemma

It’s a legit problem folks. The St. Louis Cardinals have a starting pitcher innings dilemma and it’s May 16th. As the Cards battle the Detroit Tigers this afternoon at Busch Stadium, I thought it was a good time to rant a little about starting pitcher nightmares. Tyler Lyons left today’s game after 3.2 innings surrendering 3 runs(1 home run) on 7 hits, walking 2 and striking...

SP Prospects to Consider (If Your Pitchers Keep Getting Hurt Like Mine)

This past week has been an interesting one for pitchers. As many have gone down with injuries (Adam Wainwright, Brandon McCarthy, Homer Bailey, and probably more), many newcomers are in line to make their impact. We already saw one highly touted prospect pitch for the Nationals, A.J. Cole, only to surrender four runs on nine hits and one walk in two innings against the Braves last...

How Will You Remember The Tim Cooney Era?

Today Adam Wainwright was supposed to be on the mound pitching the series finale against the Phillies on a beautiful St. Louis day. Instead he was in post-op, recovering from achilles surgery and a young lefty by the name Tim Cooney was called up from AAA to make his MLB debut to try and plug the hole that Wainwright’s injury left behind. We knew it was a tall order. We didn...

MLB Game Picks - Thursday: April 30, 2015

The Game Picks had another good day yesterday to give me a shot at finished this awful month in the black instead of the red. The only thing that annoys me is that I never pick the Yankees as the Pick of the Day and I did and they lost. Not only did they lose, but they lost in extra-innings. I am now 0-9 in the last nine games that have gone into extra frames. That's amazing. Thursday...

Cooney heads to mound for first time in majors in finale vs. Phillies

Cooney makes his big league debut Thursday as the St. Louis Cardinals wrap up their four-game set with Philadelphia. This was scheduled to be Adam Wainwright's next start before the Cardinals learned he was done for...

Prospect Profile: Marco Gonzales

Adam Wainwright is done for the year, so the Cardinals will have to dip into their starting pitching depth. At least for now it will be Tim Cooney as a replacement, but the popular opinion is that Marco Gonzales will eventually take that spot in the rotation and run with it. The reason Gonzales may not be an automatic add is that he's currently dealing with an injury of his own...

Wainwright Has One More W Than Healthy Achilles Heels

It seems loud and clear that the roof is closing on Adam Wainwright's season. If only he had a 3rd Achilles he could sub in! We should be able to have a schadenfreude party since I told everyone not to draft him this year, but there's always a few people who still draft him against my wishes, so do we ignore these people and still schadenfreude or do we show pity? *thinks for...
