Blues go with small fixes over major additions at trade deadline

ST. LOUIS -- A busy trade deadline day resulted in minor fixes rather than major additions for the St. Louis Blues. It's a departure from the past two years for general manager Dave Armstrong, who added No. 1 goaltender Ryan Miller last March and top line defenseman Jay Bouwmeester the year before. But Monday's deals reflect Armstrong's overall satisfaction with his team, particularly...

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...

Cardinals' Wainwright throws first bullpen since abdominal injury

JUPITER, Fla. -- Adam Wainwright bumped fists and smiled following a short bullpen session on Monday, the first since straining his abdominal muscle a week ago. Wainwright didn't use maximum effort for most of the 30-plus pitch session, but did turn it up for the final five pitches -- one of which had bullpen catcher Jamie Pogue hooting and hollering behind the plate. The Cardinals...

Yes, Mizzou is as bad as you thought -- historically bad, in fact

Missouri's dismal basketball season only gets worse when compared with other teams from the school's rich basketball history. The Tigers have grown accustomed to success, particularly at Mizzou Arena, where they went 99-6 over the past six seasons. So it must be a little jarring to those familiar with the program to see this year's team 7-8 at home, with six home losses in SEC play...

The best thing Crews can offer his young Billikens is brutal honesty

ST. LOUIS -- Having six freshmen on your roster does not make for much of a recipe for success in the Atlantic 10 Conference, as Saint Louis University has found out this season. But there can be advantages to being so young. For one, it means Senior Night festivities can be quite brief. SLU has only two seniors, center John Manning and forward Grandy Glaze, to recognize Wednesday...

Stastny and dynamic third line lead Blues to 2-1 win at Edmonton

The Blues offense may be slowly heating up, one game and one piece at a time. Paul Stastny and his linemates looked to be on a different level than the rest of their teammates Saturday night, carrying St. Louis to a key 2-1 win at Edmonton. Ben Scrivens' quick glove kept Stastny from scoring the game-winner midway through the third period, but St. Louis' center found the net on a...

Outshot, outrebounded, outplayed: Billikens fail to compete in harrowing home loss

ST. LOUIS -- Saint Louis coach Jim Crews didn't have much of an explanation after the Billikens' 78-50 loss to George Mason on Saturday night at Chaifetz Arena. "It's pretty simple. We didn't compete. We weren't sound and that's my fault," Crews said. Well, then. There really wasn't much else to say after SLU's worst home loss since enduring a 29-point thumping against Southern...

ST. LOUIS -- Isaiah Jackson scored 14 of his 18 points in the first half as George Mason built an early advantage that it rode to a 78-50 victory over Saint Louis on Saturday night.

Blues continue to make the most of life on the road

A five-game road swing to open a stretch with 11 of 14 away from home would be a difficult challenge for most clubs.

After opening their trip with a victory, the Blues look to nail down their ninth win in 10 road games Saturday night with their fifth in a row at the Western Conference...
