Trevor Rosenthal Wasn’t Popular On Twitter Last Night

What type of athlete would you be? Would you log on to Twitter and read your @ replies? Or just ignore them all together? I’d like to think I could ignore them, but I couldn’t. I’d probably even search for my own name and reply to people that didn’t even @ me. I’m not proud of it. But let’s get real, Twitter’s like touching a injury… it hurts more when you do it,...

MLB Game Picks - Wednesday: September 17, 2014

Last night was fun to watch for a lot of Beltway fans as the Nationals and Orioles clinched their divisions. I feel happy for the fans of those teams as they get to celebrate (for now) the accomplishments of the teams. For others seeking the wild card, last night was a problem as several of them lost and that became a problem for me as I did not have a good night of picking at all...

Cardinals give away runs, give away bases and, ultimately, give away game

ST. LOUIS -- Getting beat is bad enough. Giving away a game is even worse, especially in September.  But the Cardinals handed the Brewers enough Tuesday night to allow them to take a 3-2 victory in 12 innings at Busch Stadium. Here's how: The Cardinals led 2-1 in the ninth when Trevor Rosenthal walked the leadoff batter, Jonathan Lucroy, and he came around to score the tying...

Trevor Has Caught Another Cold

Cough. Cough, cough. Trevor was hardly ‘kingly’ in the 9th inning of Tuesday’s 3-2 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers. Attempting his 45th save of the season, he promptly stripped Lance Lynn and the Cardinals of a win. 3 outs from a death blow to the Brewers season, they came off the ropes swinging. Ok – try to take this gas can of a 9th out of the equation. Just put a pin in...

Analyzing Sam Tuivailala’s Debut

The Cardinals are no strangers to converting strong-armed position players to the mound when their bats can’t keep up with their arms. The most storied case, of course, is Jason Motte. Motte went from a 19th-round catcher with a cannon arm with a career .188 batting average to dominant closer who ended the 2011 World Series. David Carpenter is another former catcher from the Cardinals’...

Blowing up: Bad day for closers

When scanning boxscores every day, you'll see a blown save from a closer on most days, but not every day. This morning ... ugh.  Angels' closer Huston Street was bad, giving up four hits and two runs without retiring a batter in a painful loss to the Rangers. That was no fun for a team in the playoff hunt. Cardinals' closer Trevor Rosenthal was pretty bad as well, walking...

For Trevor Stung

Hello, I’m Keith Morrison of Dateline. Today’s story is about a young closer who had the life that we all dream about -- money, girls, Tony La Russa's private phone number to find out if a product used animal testing. What Trevor Rosenthal didn't have, his shut 'em down stuff. We pick up the story right after Rosenthal took the mound on April 7th. He was in for...

Matheny stands by his man Rosenthal despite occasional struggles

ST. LOUIS -- If you think the Cardinals are considering moving Trevor Rosenthal out of his ninth-inning role, think again. "Not happening," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said with conviction and no hesitation Sunday afternoon following his team's 7-6 victory over the Padres. "He's our closer." Matheny stood by his man even after he had pulled him with...

MLB Game Picks - Friday: August 15, 2014

The picks went off nearly flawlessly yesterday with a 9-1 record. The only incorrect pick was picking San Diego over the Cardinals. Trevor Rosenthal almost gave that game away too for the Cardinals as he allowed five base runners in the ninth but only one run. How is that possible? Heh. If the Padres had secured that comeback, it would have been a perfect day.We have a new commissioner...

3 Best St. Louis Cardinals Prospects No One Is Talking About

Promising talent has never been of concern for the St. Louis Cardinals. History backs it. From pitchers Shelby Miller, Trevor Rosenthal, Carlos Martinez and Michael Wacha, to sluggers Oscar Taveras and Matt Adams. The list goes on and on. Developing prospects into future big leaguers is what the Cardinals stand for. It’s been that way for quite some time. Fans know it. Other...

The $50M question: Will Rosenthal ever get a chance to start?

OK, Trevor Rosenthal. Let's just say if the decision were yours, what would it be: Starting or closing? "I'd have to think about it," he answers just as he answers many questions -- that is, with a slight grin. Well, there was a time not that long ago when you would have chosen starting without any hesitation. Does that mean you're coming around to the idea...

Sunday's win full of key developments as race heats up in NL Central

ST. LOUIS -- Come the end of September, be sure to remember what happened Sunday afternoon at Busch Stadium. The Cardinals' 3-2 victory over the Brewers very likely will be viewed as the day that changed the race in the NL Central. Not because new starter John Lackey went seven strong innings, or because new catcher A.J. Pierzynski came through with a key hit, or because rookie...

Landon Beck dominates but Low Minors go 0-5

Landon Beck was taken out of Anderson University in South Carolina in the 25th round of this past June’s draft. In any other organization, that’s an afterthought or maybe a trivia question. But, in an organization like the Cardinals’ that has produced Trevor Rosenthal (21st round), Kevin Siegrist (21st), Jaime Garcia (22nd), Sam Freeman (32nd), Seth Maness (11th), and Jason...

The Efficiency Of Rosenthal

There were so many people worried about Trevor Rosenthal earlier this season. He was a walking medical emergency on the mound. Walking batters. Creating big counts. Throwing a ton of innings. Rosenthal didn’t settle down until two men were on base and the count was full on batter #3. Some guys just can’t make it easy. That’s [...]

Poll Results: Which Cardinals’ reliever do you trust the most?

This poll question has probably generated the most shocking response in my opinion. When I was originally typing the poll question post, I wanted to leave out Pat Neshek and Trevor Rosenthal because I figured they would run away with the results and thus they would be skewed. Boy was I wrong…. Take Our Poll I am shocked that only 7% of Cards fans trust their closer. He has...

Poll: Which Cardinals bullpen pitcher do you trust the most?

Oh boy, has the St. Louis Cardinals’ bullpen had its ups and downs this year. What seemed like a pretty strong core going into the season, has had to rely heavily on Pat Neshek and Sam Freeman for a good chunk of the season. The Cards are getting another important piece to the ‘pen back on Wednesday, Kevin Siegrist. This will put three lefties in the pen, as Nick Greenwood is...

Cardinals pretty pleased with play in first series after All-Star break

ST. LOUIS -- The calendar said July but the intensity Sunday night at Busch Stadium felt more like October. In a game packed with action and drama, the Dodgers scored with two outs in the ninth to take a 4-3 victory and keep the Cardinals from sweeping the three-game series. In addition to the last-inning excitement, the game featured a three-run rally by the Cardinals against the...

Aaron Sanchez and the Trevor Rosenthal Experiment

On Thursday night, preseason consensus top-50 prospect Aaron Sanchez made his first appearance of the season out of the bullpen for the Buffalo Bisons, the Triple-A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays. Sanchez’s move to the pen is notable for several reasons, even though he already had 14 relief appearances on his minor league resume (though […]

Marlins get to Trevor Rosenthal this time, sting Cardinals with two run comeback in the 9th

This could pan out as the most disappointing loss of the season thus far. Trevor Rosenthal threw 31 pitches in last night’ 3-2 victory in the series opener, only to escape with a game ending 5-4-3 double play. With a 5-4 lead, Rosenthal came in with one out in the 9th. He threw 23 pitches, resulting in his fourth blown save of the season. Casey McGehee singled to right to score...

Bullpen offers little relief in late-game loss to Miami

ST. LOUIS -- The much-maligned Cardinals offense came through Saturday afternoon with five runs in the first four innings against the Marlins, which was good enough for a four-run lead after five. The problem was, on this day, it just wasn't good enough. The Marlins cut the deficit with a three-run homer by Christian Yelich off reliever Seth Manness in the sixth and then scored...
