If Adams hits lefties, the Cardinals have an everyday first baseman

ST. LOUIS -- Batting left-handed is not a mandatory requirement for starting at first base in the National League. It only seems that way. Twelve of the 15 clubs list a lefty hitter as their primary first baseman on mlb.com's depth charts and two others, the Nationals and Marlins, started a lefty at the position in 2014. That leaves Arizona's Paul Goldschmidt, the league's premier...

Sierra, Gonzales named Cardinals' top minor leaguers of 2014

ST. LOUIS -- Magneuris Sierra and Marco Gonzales represent different ends of the scouting and development spectrum for the St. Louis Cardinals. Sierra is an 18-year-old outfielder who came up through the Cardinals Dominican Academy. Gonzales is a 22-year-old polished left-hander who reached the majors just more than a year after being a first-round pick out of Gonzaga in 2013. But...

Rams DBs have been GR8 of late but OMG, here comes ODB

ST. LOUIS -- New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. became a household name by making one of the most ridiculous catches ever last month, and he's much more than just a one-hit wonder. Anyone who follows the NFL in any capacity has seen the play by now, when the rookie fought off a clear pass interference from Dallas defensive back Brandon Carr near the front corner of the...

Four ex-Cardinals find it pays to have worn the Birds on the Bat

ST. LOUIS -- It sure pays to play for the Cardinals. You get the big home crowds, your travel is reasonable without any coast-to-coast trips and those annual playoff-share checks make a nice bonus at the end of the year. And then, when it's time to become an ex-Cardinal, you reap more dividends just for being part of such a winning club. At least that's how it's worked out for four...

Rams' Gaines is lone rookie CB in NFL to start every game this season

ST. LOUIS -- Defensive back E.J. Gaines slipped into St. Louis Rams training camp as an afterthought. Turns out, the sixth-round pick has been a steal. Gaines has started every game for a defense that hasn't allowed a touchdown the last three games. He is the only rookie cornerback in the NFL to start every game. "A pleasant surprise? No, I wouldn't say that," coach Jeff Fisher said...

Kings brace for another dose of Tarasenko and the Blues

The Los Angeles Kings would normally relish an immediate opportunity for redemption following a tough loss. That sentiment may not apply when Vladimir Tarasenko is involved. The Kings return home for a rematch with the surging Blues on Thursday night, two days after squandering a two-goal advantage and falling 5-2 to St. Louis. "You kind of felt it in the game," Blues captain David...

Crawford's career night helps Billikens hold off Texas-Pan American

ST. LOUIS -- Division I basketball is a demanding sport anytime, but especially when you're dealing with an illness. Ask sophomore Mike Crawford of the Saint Louis Billikens. Earlier in the season, he was losing weight, feeling weak and getting fatigued from a mysterious bug that he says doctors never quite figured out. He continued to play but his performance, not surprisingly,...

Saint Louis escapes Texas-Pan American, 75-69

ST. LOUIS -- Mike Crawford scored 19 points -- including 8 of 10 from the line -- and Saint Louis made a late run to beat Texas-Pan American 75-69 on Wednesday. Crawford made three 3-pointers, including one with 1:13 left to spark an 11-6 run from the Billikens to finish the game. The Broncs (5-5) trailed by one with 4:41 after Janari Joesaar's three free-throws made it 64-63, but...

Blues place Schwartz on IR with injured right foot, recall Jaskin

ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Blues announced Wednesday night that forward Jaden Schwartz has been placed on Injured Reserve and is considered week-to-week after suffering an injury to his right foot in the Blues' 5-2 win over the Kings on Tuesday.   Forward Dmitrij Jaskin has been called up from the Blues' American Hockey League affiliate Chicago Wolves to fill his spot on the roster...

It's time for the Rams to start thinking about their QB for next year

ST. LOUIS -- Two strong performances to end the season won't be enough to ensure Shaun Hill keeps his job, but it certainly wouldn't hurt. It's tough to imagine the 34-year-old veteran doing enough to change the perception of him as a solid career backup with limited ability and a tendency to falter under pressure. Then again, with no good long-term answers at quarterback for the...

Rams defense hopes to stretch TD-less streak to four games vs. Giants

Eli Manning will no doubt be targeting the dynamic Odell Beckham Jr. this weekend. They will be going up against a St. Louis Rams defense that hasn't yielded a touchdown in three games. The Rams seek to become the first team in 14 years to go four games in a row without yielding a touchdown when they host the New York Giants on Sunday. If there is any intrigue in this matchup of...

Blues' penalty-kill units have been busy -- and increasingly effective

ST. LOUIS -- A little more practice than they would like has brought the Blues' improving penalty kill into focus at just the right time. The Blues' two penalty-kill units have been busy lately, particularly in the last two games when they've faced 12 power plays against the struggling units of Colorado and Los Angeles. Each opponent mustered just one goal in six opportunities before...

Blues more than happy to kick slumping Kings while they're down

ST. LOUIS – If the Blues are going to reach new heights this season, breaking out of a slump against the Los Angeles Kings figured to be one of the bars they would need to clear. The defending Stanley Cup champions have been nearly unbeatable for St. Louis since two straight wins to begin a first round series in 2013. Even a dominant performance with a season-high 43 shots wasn...

Tarasenko scores three in Blues' comeback win over LA

ST. LOUIS -- Vladimir Tarasenko scored three goals, and the streaking St. Louis Blues netted four in the third period in a 5-2 comeback victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday night for their fifth straight win. The Blues scored three times, including two power-play goals, in a span of 2:30 in the third. Tarasenko added an empty-net tally with 1:24 remaining for his 20th goal...

Mizzou DE Ray picks up second-team AP All-America honors

The College Football Playoff participants are well represented on The Associated Press All-America team. Florida State leads the way with three first-team All-Americans: tight end Nick O'Leary, guard Tre Jackson and kicker Roberto Aguayo, who is an All-American for the second straight season. Oregon and Alabama each have two, including a couple of Heisman Trophy finalists. Heisman...

Cook's critical words after Rams' loss leads to meeting with Fisher

ST. LOUIS -- Jared Cook spoke eloquently about why he and four St. Louis Rams teammates did the "Hands Up" gesture, but comments about his coach get him in trouble last week. It's "not just a Ferguson thing," the Rams tight end said earlier this month. "It's a worldwide thing. You don't need to burn down your community, you don't need to harm others to get your message across." However...

Descalso gets two-year, $3.6M deal with Rockies

DENVER -- The first big league signing of Jeff Bridich's tenure as general manager of the Colorado Rockies was far more sensible than splashy. The Rockies needed a versatile infielder, and so they added Daniel Descalso with a $3.6 million, two-year contract Tuesday. It appears to be a sound investment for a team that's trying to rebound from a 96-loss season, especially after Colorado...

Missing Grandy: Absence of Glaze has 'definitely hurt' Billikens

ST. LOUIS -- Ten games into a rebuilding season, much remains unknown about the Saint Louis Billikens. Coach Jim Crews continues to rely on a 12-man rotation that he says could change from game to game. Scoring can come from virtually anyone; five players already have led the team in scoring for one or more games. And at least for now, their leading rebounder is a guard, junior Ash...

With Backes setting the example, Blues' top line is heating up

ST. LOUIS -- A hard-working veteran line hitting its stride has provided the spark for a Blues offense averaging nearly four goals per game in December. Alexander Steen, T.J. Oshie and David Backes finished last season as the top three points leaders for St. Louis, so it came as no surprise when the team struggled to score while the trio got off to a slow start this October. Steen...

Always the loyal soldier, Rosenthal stays quiet but hasn't lost his desire to start

ST. LOUIS -- Someday, Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal would like to start. He knows he won't have a chance in 2015, and he's OK with that. The way the Cardinals are set up, Rosenthal might not have a chance in 2016, and he'd probably be OK with that, too. Rosenthal doesn't much like talking publicly about his desire to start. When I asked him last season, he hemmed and hawed and...

Blues still need to figure out how to crack Quick, Kings

The first time the Los Angeles Kings and St. Louis Blues met this season, Jeff Carter's shootout conversion was the only puck to find the back of the net. Given the Blues' recent form, a home-and-home series that begins Tuesday night in St. Louis figures to feature a little more offense from at least one side. The Blues (20-8-2) have won four straight with 19 goals scored. The Kings...
