Looking at the top right handed starters in the Cardinals organization

Continuing our run through of the positions in the Cardinals minor league system, we begin our look at the pitching staff. This will be broken down into three posts, right-handed and left-handed starters and relievers. A few years ago, the Cardinals system was stocked full of right-handed studs like Michael Wacha, Carlos Martinez, and Trevor Rosenthal just to name a few. The organization...

Slow down, Trevor! Smoke it, Jason! And more spring objectives

ST. LOUIS -- Just in case anyone needed a reminder, former Cardinals second baseman Tom Herr sent one Saturday. Indeed, nothing can take the hope out of a season more decidedly than a rash of injuries in the exhibition season. Still, work needs to be done, too, especially by young players who still have plenty to prove. When the Cardinals open their practice-game schedule Thursday...

Wacha holds key that could turn Cardinals rotation from good to great

ST. LOUIS -- Matt Holliday needs to hit more than 20 homers, Adam Wainwright needs to win 20 games and Trevor Rosenthal needs to cut the 45 walks by about half. Matt Adams needs to hit more than 15 homers, Lance Lynn needs to pitch more than 200 innings and Jordan Walden needs to make the Cardinals forget about Pat Neshek. And Yadier Molina needs to stay healthy, Jon Jay needs a...

St. Louis Cardinals: 5 Potential Breakout Candidates to Watch in Spring Training

The St. Louis Cardinals enter spring training as a perennial playoff contender. The team has found success building from within and making smart choices outside of the organization. They enter the 2015 season with very few question marks on their roster. That’s not to say that some players will not have the ability to incite some excitement over the next six weeks. There are numerous...

Cardinals: 5 players set to exceed expectations in 2015

As I write this in the middle of the last day of January, my emotions can not help but flip to February, which of course brings said emotions to think about one thing: SPRING TRAINING. While the winter months and Hot Stove season is full of fun, nothing is better than when pitchers and catcher report. Not only does it take my mind off the cold weather in St. Louis, but it serves...

St. Louis Cardinals: Trevor Rosenthal still has more upside

In life, there are plenty of things that are predictable. For one, the weather man is wrong most of the time.  I mean, they have a 50 percent chance of being right, it is either going to rain or it isn’t. Secondly, we all know that Marshawn Lynch is not really going to answer the media’s questions, even at the Super Bowl. Finally, it is predictable for many St. Louis Cardinals...

Cardinals: Sam Tuivailala gives bullpen a high octane wild card

The St. Louis Cardinals have made some sexy moves this offseason, most notably the acquisition of Jason Heyward (of course, a position player).  But his former teammate Jordan Walden came over in the trade to solidify the back-end of the bullpen as well, and it is a move that should not be overlooked. Speaking of being overlooked, nor should another very promising prospect that...

Trevor Rosenthal Seems to Have Embraced Closer Role for St. Louis Cardinals

The St. Louis Cardinals have been blessed with the gift of pitching over the last few seasons. So much so that TrevorRosenthal, once viewed as having a future in the starting rotation, has seemingly settled in to his role as the team’s closer. He pitched well there at times last season, but he still has a plan to improve in 2015. The Cardinals have wrapped up their annual fan...

Player Profile #180: Trevor Rosenthal | RP | STL

Unlike other positions, where players are scrutinized and ranked with the utmost care, relief pitchers tend to be plopped into groups of players with similar value. In general, the groups (or tiers) are based off how many strengths pitchers have in one of three general areas: Saves/Holds ERA/WHIP Strikeouts Relievers that perform well in all three are elite (Craig Kimbrel, Aroldis...

Roundtable Review: A look at future St. Louis Cardinals trades

The roundtable question this week paralleled the poll question and wanted to know who was the next St. Louis Cardinal player to likely be traded. Unlike with the poll question, our responses can get pretty specific with the roundtable. Here were the responses to this week’s roundtable question:MichajoPeralta and Rosenthal. Both have high value right now, but Peralta is past his...

Cards Conclave Round Table: The Bullpen

For my turn on the round table, I asked the following:   Let’s go with the bullpen question…Assemble your bullpen for next year. Also, to make it fun, assume Pat Neshek signs elsewhere, what external candidate do you replace him with? Andrew Miller ? Other possibilities?   Also, here  are Trevor Rosenthal ‘s month by month splits. While he ended on a [...]

Yup, Mike Matheny saved his closer for a save situation

The San Francisco Giants won the NL pennant on Thursday night, and Mike Matheny once again managed to the save stat and not the in-game situation. Matheny, when asked about not using closer T. Rosenthal in 9th: "We can't bring him in, in a tie-game situation. We're on the road.” — Bernie Miklasz (@miklasz) October 17, 2014 Tie game, bottom of the ninth, one run ends your season…so...

St. Louis Cardinals: Season ends in dramatic fashion

Playoff games have a funny way of turning around in a heartbeat. For the San Francisco Giants Thursday night, that turnaround came off late-inning home runs by Michael Morse and Travis Ishikawa to vault them to a 6-3 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals in game five of the NLCS. With the victory, the Giants clinched the National League Pennant and advanced to the World Series against...

Trevor Rosenthal and the Catchers: A Mostly Pointless Exercise

In Sunday’s NLCS Game 2, the Cardinals had to replace an injured Yadier Molina with a bad Tony Cruz, and while the Cardinals went on to still win the game in dramatic fashion, oblique injuries are a real problem, which means Molina will at least be compromised if he’s even able to play, and that’s […]

Cards continue to defy logic, narrative — and continue to win

  The narrative is so tempting. Catcher Yadier Molina is a decent bet to miss the rest of the postseason. Closer Trevor Rosenthal is a roller coaster in the ninth inning. Right-hander Adam Wainwright is a major question instead of a lockdown ace. Concern, panic, doom — take your pick. Or not. The Cardinals won Game 2 of the National League Championship Series after losing Molina...

5 Super Bold Predictions: SF vs STL NLCS

The Cardinals and Giants (finally) begin the NLCS tonight in St. Louis. Before GM 1 of the NLDS, we made 5 super-bold predictions for the NLDS and ended up nailing 2 of five (Kershaw did get rocked, the FS1 broadcast of GM 1 was the highest rated in the network’s history), missing on 2 (Bourjos did not hit a HR, Rosenthal had 4 strikeouts instead of 7) and realizing far too late...

St. Louis Cardinals’ late round draft success paying huge dividends this postseason

It is no secret that the St. Louis Cardinals minor league system has contributed to the team’s success these past few years, or even this year as the starting nine in Game 4 versus the Dodgers had only one player signed via free-agency, Jhonny Peralta. Six of the nine were Cardinal draftees, and two (Holliday and Grichuk) were acquired using Cardinal draft picks or minor league...

St. Louis Cardinals survive, edge LA Dodgers 10-9

If you watched this game from start to finish, you learned a valuable lesson: nothing in baseball is guaranteed. Nothing. Trevor Rosenthal struck out Yasiel Puig to strand a runner on third in the ninth inning and preserve a 10-9 victory for the St. Louis Cardinals over the Los Angeles Dodgers Friday night in game one of their NLDS matchup. The game was originally primed as a pitcher’s...

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.

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’...
