Cardinals: Ben Zobrist should be John Mozlieak’s top trade target

When news broke that St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams would likely be lost for the season with a severe quad tear, fans went in to hysteria about how the team would replace the underwhelming .243/.281/.375 slash line Adams had posted in 43 games this season. There were all sorts of scenarios thrown out there by fans and experts alike. Some of which were reasonable (let...

Cardinals: Another injury and another win

When news dropped down on Wednesday afternoon that Matt Adams would be missing 3-4 months(aka the rest of the regular season), the keyboard gangsters went to work, including yours truly. It’s like having a patient on a bed in a small medical exam room in a hospital and you invite 20 people off the street to fire their diagnosis forward. “Matt Holliday to first base, please...

Blues: Ken Hitchcock’s return demands a roster shuffle

The little song and dance with the St. Louis Blues and Ken Hitchcock has officially come to an end. After courting Mike Babcock and losing him to loads of money in Canada, General Manager Doug Armstrong called Ken Hitchcock back and told him let’s give it another year. That’s right. A one year deal brings back a coach who hasn’t gotten past the second round in his last four...

Trevor Rosenthal: Less charity and more efficiency on the mound

It’s been a while since Cardinals fans treated social media like a radar reading before the ninth inning, flooding the internet with Rosenthal warnings while quietly looking for shelter. That was 2014, a season that will go down a bumpy road in the young flame thrower’s career even though he saved 45 games and struck out 87 hitter sin 70.1 innings. It was viewed as a wild roller...

Cardinals: Lorenzo Cain is the player fans expected Peter Bourjos to become

The St. Louis Cardinals dropped their first game to the Kansas City Royals on Friday night, losing 5-0 as the offense sputtered and Lance Lynn could not get Kendrys Morales out.  Prior to the game, most of the excitement amongst Cardinals fans on Twitter centered around manager Mike Matheny‘s lineup, and the usage of the team’s best defensive alignment in the outfield. Randal...

Blues: Make up your mind on Ken Hitchcock

I could just be confused, but wasn’t it Doug Armstrong, General Manager of the St. Louis Blues who said back in September that the head coaching job was Ken Hitchcock’s until the coach decided he didn’t want it. If that’s so, then why does every comment from Hitchcock sound like a man waiting in a green room for the director to call his name to the set? What is going on...

Cardinals: Kolten Wong Is A Potent Leadoff Option

How tasty would it be if the St. Louis Cardinals’ leadoff hitter had a .350 plus on base percentage and a .460 plus slugging percentage and his name wasn’t Matt Carpenter? Say hello to Kolten Wong, the formerly self tortured young second baseman with a heavy stick who spent 2014 living down the terrible memory of a World Series pickoff. The Wong of 2015 has become a unique...

Cardinals: It’s Time To Move Matt Adams Down In The Lineup

A hot topic in Cardinals keyboard gangster land is the usage of Matt Adams. There are crowds that want him to be completely off the team via trade or demotion. There are others that want him to start less. Others are willing to wait on the 2013-14 Adams to reappear. I’ll tell you one thing. He has no business being in the cleanup spot right now. He should’t even bat 5th. I...

Cardinals: Appreciating Jhonny Peralta’s consistent production

Matt Carpenter and Matt Holliday get the headlines, but Jhonny Peralta’s consistent production should be not overlooked. It has been an outstanding start to the 2015 season for several St. Louis Cardinals players, with the play and production of Matt Carpenter and Matt Holliday in particular receiving many of the headlines. The duo certainly deserves kudos and the attention is...

Cardinals: Time to move Matt Carpenter back to the leadoff spot

When St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny moved star third-baseman Matt Carpenter to the No. 2 spot in the order, many fans cheered. After demolishing every baseball thrown his way last post-season, fans had wanted to see Carpenter out of the leadoff spot and in a position to do more damage, or, at least more damage with runners on base. Carpenter has answered the bell so far...

Blues: Waiting for a decision on Ken Hitchcock is as agonizing as his playoff record

It has now been 19 days since the St. Louis Blues were once again ousted earlier than both experts and idiots expected in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, bowing out to the Minnesota Wild.  It has been a long and painful 19 days for Blues fans. They have seen that same Wild team get embarrased by the local team’s most hated rival, the Chicago Blackhawks. They have seen Chicago Cubs...

Cardinals: Kevin Siegrist is perfect solution to step in set-up role

On Sunday morning, St. Louis Cardinals fans received some bad news, as elite set-up man Jordan Walden hit the 15-day disabled list with a strained biceps. The injury certainly is a blow to the Cardinals bullpen as Walden has been superb in a set-up role, setting the table for closer Trevor Rosenthal. The Cardinals called up one of my favorite relievers, Sam Tuivailala to take Walden’s...

The NFL released the 2015 schedule on Tuesday and St. Louis Rams fans got their first glimpse at possibly the last docket of games the franchise will play as a St. Louis based team.

St. Louis Rams may visit Dallas Cowboys training facility in California this fall

The St. Louis Rams have a tough up-hill battle to sell tickets and create fan interest in St. Louis, at least for as long as the franchise continues to stay mum on its rumored intentions to move the team to Los Angeles as soon as humanly possible. Scheduling some scrimmage time with the Dallas Cowboys in Oxnard, California will do very little to help the issue of fan interest. That...
