Miller deals, offense wakes up to give Cardinals a much-needed Happy Flight home

Maybe Thursday morning's trade shook up the Cardinals. Maybe it was hitting in the San Diego sunshine rather than the heavy marine layer that moves in after dark. Maybe they were embarrassed by their performance on Wednesday night. Whatever the reason, the Cardinals played like a different team on Thursday afternoon in a 6-1 victory over the Padres. The victory averted a sweep...

Lackey deal tugs the heartstrings but makes Cardinals a better team

ST. LOUIS -- After the Cardinals' uninspired 12-1 loss to the Padres on Wednesday night, Jim Edmonds said what anyone watching would have to agree with. "Somebody in the clubhouse needs to jump up and down and scream. There doesn't seem to be any sense of urgency," Edmonds said -- to paraphrase -- on the FOX Sports Midwest postgame show.   Well, somebody sure shook...

Cardinals trade Kelly, Craig to Red Sox for RHP Lackey

ST. LOUIS -- John Lackey beat the Cardinals last year in the World Series, and now he's going to join them. Allen Craig and Joe Kelly couldn't beat the Red Sox, so now they're going to join them. Continuing to bolster their rotation with veterans, the Cardinals acquired the right-handed Lackey from the Red Sox in exchange for Craig and Kelly, two mainstays on last year...

'If there is a consummate Hall of Famer, it's Aeneas Williams'

ST. LOUIS -- The character Aeneas Williams displayed throughout his NFL career undoubtedly would have defined him no matter what he did for a living. But the talent he showed between the white lines surely would have been hidden forever had he not decided to walk on the football team his junior season at Southern University. If not for that, he might have been an accountant like...

Miller looks to help Cards salvage final game of road trip

Every once in awhile, baseball's worst offense gets a jolt that produces plenty of runs. The San Diego Padres have shown consistently that their pitching can shut down the opposition, though. Rookie Odrisamer Despaigne takes the mound Thursday as the Padres go for a three-game home sweep of the slumping St. Louis Cardinals. San Diego (48-59) has scored by far the fewest runs...

Pick your poison: Sloppy defense, poor pitching and not-so-clutch hitting burn the Birds

Look at it this way: The Cardinals have nowhere to go but up after their 12-1 loss at San Diego Wednesday night. It was that ugly. For example: They gave up eight runs in one inning, three scoring when Jhonny Peralta let a grounder go right between his legs with the bases loaded. It somehow was scored a double. Rookies Oscar Taveras and Kolten Wong let a routine pop fall between...

QB questions abound in SEC with big stars gone

MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- Quarterback battles and signal-caller questions abound in the Southeastern Conference going into preseason camps around the league. Big names, not so much. Division favorites Alabama and South Carolina will be banking on new starters. Ditto for Texas A&M, Georgia and defending East Division champion Missouri. So long, Johnny Manziel, Aaron Murray and AJ McCarron...

Cardinals find their Saturday starter in Indians' Masterson

The Cardinals have found their starter for Saturday and indeed he was an external option. They traded for Indians right-hander Justin Masterson, the club announced Wednesday afternoon. The cost for the 29-year-old right-hander was not cheap. James Ramsey, a Class AA outfielder who was the lone Cardinals prospect at the Futures Game, will be going to the Indians. The Cardinals are...

Blues sign Peter Mueller, the latest center for their growing collection

ST. LOUIS -- The Blues picked up another free-agent center on Tuesday, this one a 26-year-old NHL veteran who played last season in Europe. Peter Mueller, a native of Bloomington, Minn., who played 49 games for Kloten in the Swiss professional league (NLA) in 2013-14, signed a one-year, two-way contract. Mueller (6 feet 2, 209 pounds) was a big scorer in the NLA, leading Kloten and...

Surprise reunion: All eyes on two Cardinals fans in San Diego

It never gets old. When a member of the U.S. military surprises a family member with an unexpected appearance after a long deployment, the overwhelming emotions you see on-screen warm the heart again and again. Such was the case Tuesday night when the Cardinals played the Padres in San Diego. And though the game wasn't at Busch Stadium, it was all about two Cardinals fans. Marine...

Kelly has golden opportunity to regroup against light-hitting Padres

Jesse Hahn has pitched more like an ace than a rookie since stumbling in his first outing last month, and continuing that trend would be a pretty nice way to spend his 25th birthday. The right-hander looks for his seventh win in eight starts while leading the Padres to their fourth straight home victory Wednesday night against the offensively challenged St. Louis Cardinals. Hahn...

Lynn handed tough-luck loss in San Diego

In a game between the NL's lowest-scoring offenses, the Cardinals put more runners on base but the Padres scored more runs Tuesday night in San Diego. The outcome: A 3-1 loss that dropped the Cardinals to 2-2 on a six-game trip and marked the second straight game -- and 27th time this season -- that they failed to score more than one run.

Mizzou down another wideout after Copelin uses banned substance

Gary Pinkel's Tigers are down another wide receiver, as sophomore Levi Copelin has been suspended for the 2014 season by the NCAA after testing positive for a banned substance.  In a statement issued by the university, Copelin explained that he used a workout supplement that was bought legally, but failed to get it passed by the Mizzou staff.  "This supplement is legal...

Regardless, Pierzynski is a sound short-term investment for Cardinals

ST. LOUIS -- A.J. Pierzynski needed all of one game to show why the Cardinals wanted him. He can hit. Fresh off the plane from Cooperstown, where he was on hand for the induction of former teammate Frank Thomas, Pierzynski went 3 for 5 with an RBI in a 6-3 victory over the Cubs. No adjustment period needed, no shaking off the rust required. Not bad for a guy who hadn't played...

Remember Rams C Barrett Jones? He's bigger, stronger and ready to compete

ST. LOUIS -- It was a long year for Rams center Barrett Jones, but one he realized he would have to endure before being able to show the team's coaches what he can do. Jones was accustomed to playing and winning while at the University of Alabama, where he was on three national championship teams. But he suffered a Lisfranc injury to his foot in the Crimson Tide's SEC Championship...

Lynn takes stellar July ERA into a matchup with punchless Padres

It's well known how bad the San Diego Padres' offense is, but less so that the St. Louis Cardinals are baseball's second-lowest scoring club. Surging right-handers Lance Lynn and Tyson Ross figure to be eager to face these offenses in their matchup to open this three-game series at pitcher-friendly Petco Park on Tuesday night. San Diego (46-59) owns baseball's worst...

Rams QB Bradford: Yet another make-or-break season

ST. LOUIS -- It's become a rite of training camp for Sam Bradford. Every summer, he deals with the oversized burden of living up to getting picked first overall in 2010. The St. Louis Rams quarterback is not surprised that once again, he's supposedly at a career crossroads. Bradford can't remember when that wasn't perceived to be the case, and he tries to ignore low...

Teryn's Take: Cards take two of three at a great old ballpark

CHICAGO -- Old Wrigley never disappoints. The classic red sign, the green ivy, the lack of a giant electronic scoreboard -- it all takes you back to the days that are now depicted on murals on the side of the stadium. Taking the series against one of your rivals makes it even better. But as a fan of one of baseball's most decorated and storied franchises, I really do appreciate...
