Being Vanilla Is No Laughing Matter

Guess what? Everyone hates the Cardinals. …That didn’t take long. It’s no secret that the Redbirds are pretty much the bane of baseball’s existence everywhere but St. Louis. Every season something comes up that gives national writers and opposing teams all the fodder they need to continue feeding the deep-seeded distaste. I get it. If I was a fan [...]

A look at Jim Edmonds and the 2016 MLB Hall of Fame class

While 2015 Spring Training is just now underway, it is never too early to take a look at the next Hall of Fame class. It has been a long time since the Cardinals had an elected member of the Baseball Hall of Fame. The club has had a couple Veteran’s Committee selections, Tony LaRussa and Joe Torre (even though neither went in as a Cardinal), but hasn’t had a BBWAA selection since...

St. Louis Cardinals: Matt Adams Primed For Big Season

If there is a Matt in camp this spring that will have plenty of eyes on him, it’s Matt Adams. Carpenter and Holliday are expected to provide a certain potency, but Adams is a wildcard. Who knows what the big man can produce if he gets another 140 games and 520 at bats this year with the Cardinals? Matt Adams has all the pressure in the world on his shoulders, or at least he talks...

Jason Heyward brings needed presence to Cardinals

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) Jason Heyward can provide both a veteran presence and youth to the St. Louis Cardinals. Going into the Cardinals' first Grapefruit League game, manager Mike Matheny had already made up his mind on what Heyward brings to the team. ''I see him as a veteran player,'' Matheny said. ''He's accomplished quite a bit in a short amount of time. He's still a young guy but...

Nelly Celebrates National (Country) Grammar Day

Today is National Grammar Day so naturally the first thing that popped in my head was Nelly’s hit Country Grammar. I used to get down to this song and even throw up the LA sign with my fingers like Nelly did in the video. I’m cool like that, ya know. I was searching to find an image to throw up on Instagram when I came across this gem of Nelly in a backwards Randy Moss Vikings...

Wainwright’s 2014 First-Half Dominance

Perhaps the long-term view of St. Louis Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright’s 2014 will include an appreciation of the fact that the right-hander performed at a high level while not right physically during the second half of the season. With the discomfort increasing in each post-All-Star break start, he dealt with what he called “the worst pain” of his entire career to date. Following...

A look at the 10 most MLB ready prospects in the Cardinals organization

Ranking the 10 most MLB ready prospects is much different from coming up with a top 10 prospect list. When doing the regular prospect list, you factor in things like projectability and upside as well as relative closeness to the big leagues. MLB ready prospects do not usually have a lot of upside, they are just in a good position to receive a call-up very quickly. You are going to...

The St. Louis Cardinals Eat Bibimbap

Imo’s. Toasted ravs. Gus’ Pretzels. Last year, over 500,000 St. Louisians went to a place called Lotawata Creek who’s website claims that they “{g}rind over 3 tons of fresh ground beef each month to make the best and biggest burgers in town.” So when it comes to food, the gateway to the west… is the gateway to the best eaters IN THE WORLD – as Mike Bush might paraphrase...

A look at the top shortstops in the St. Louis Cardinals minor league system

The shortstop position can be a tough position to project as it’s one of the toughest positions to play on the field and there is so much turnover from year-to-year. The St. Louis Cardinals have an ideal shortstop in mind and ironically, the guy at the highest level does not have that makeup.If you look through the system, you will find defensive minded players at the shortstop...

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...
