Things To Talk About This Monday

Baseball seasons don’t end the first week in May. But if they did, the 2015 Cardinals would be one of the all-time greats! Let’s watch Wong walk it off: If you bet $100 dollars for the Astros to win 10 games ago and let your winnings ride, you’d have banked $160,000… You know those signs at some workplaces that have XXX amount of days since we’ve...

Where has all of the Cardinals pitching depth gone?

There was a time, not so long ago, that the Cardinals were the envy of General Managers everywhere for their pitching depth.  You think your team has good pitching depth?  We had 3 guys who can throw 95+ mph (Shelby Miller, Joe Kelly and Trevor Rosenthal) vying for our 5th starter spot in 2013.Now, with the expectation that Adam Wainwright will miss the rest of the season with...

Cardinals take home-opening series from Brewers

The Cardinals shutout the Brewers, 4-0, on Thursday behind more fantastic starting pitching, this time from John Lackey. They moved to 5-3 on the season with two series wins and a split over three divisional opponents. Lackey shut down the Brewers offense over seven strong innings, allowing five hits and a walk with eight strikeouts. Especially promising is the fact that Lackey was...

Will The Cardinals Stick With Trevor Rosenthal?

Sometimes, it’s best to point out that the first month of the season is the hardest for a sports writer. Stats come in small sample sizes and a game or two can flip a story on a dime. For example, I wrote about Trevor Rosenthal pitching leaner and meaner the other day, and then he produced high blood pressures across the Midwest with his last two outings. After striking out five...

Buffa’s Bullets: Trevor Rosenthal’s Steady Start Continues

Good afternoon, Cardinals fans. As the day of leisure settles in and more baseball is on the way this afternoon, allow me to fire some bullets your way. The Cards are off to a 2-2 start, including a premature rainout in Chicago. Even though the team has scored three runs or more in three of the four games, reading fan forums and message boards would lead one to believe the team is...

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...

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.

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...

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...

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.

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...

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 […]

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...
