Kelly to return to St. Louis after straining his left hamstring

After working so long to secure a spot in the rotation, it would be a shame for Joe Kelly if he has to spend much time on the sideline. He was scheduled to return to St. Louis after exiting Wednesday's 5-1 loss to the Brewers with what the club inititally called "left hamstring tightness," which Kelly suffered while trying to beat out a bunt in the fifth inning.

Peralta's glove, Kelly's hammy are concerns coming out of loss to Brewers

Shelby Miller: Is It Time to Worry?

Usually at this point in the season, any analysis of players is completely unfair to both the players and the reader and is an over read of a small sample size. But with Shelby Miller, there may be reason for concern. And it may have much less to do with his results so far this year (which are not pretty) and more of a concern that it may be a continuation of what was wrong late...

Forbes Says Yankess @ Cardinals Is MLB’s Most Expensive Ticket

It’s Jeeetah. It’s CC. It’s the New York Freakin’ Yankees.

Game 14: A Picasso

42 was pretty good for the Cardinals tonight. True, every player was wearing number 42 in honor of Jackie Robinson, but in way, it’s still true. This was a dominant team effort by the Cardinals against the division leaders on the road. Shelby Miller went 6 innings, struck out 7 and tallied his first win of the season. Mark Ellis made his Cardinals debut and had 2 RBIs. Matt Adams...

WATCH: Matt Carpenter makes funny face

We’ve gotten some pretty great baseball GIFs so far in this young season, but this one – featuring Matt Carpenter’s derp face – is definitely the greatest, and it may never be topped for the rest of the year. If that derp face is juicin’ (and it very well may be) it’s still getting into the Hall of Fame on the first ticket. That’s about as good as it gets, ladies and...

How Many Cardinals Made The Top Earners List?

Zero. Neither did any Blues or Rams players. The Cardinals are not the Phillies, after all. And we should all be thankful. ESPN the Magazine did an interesting data visualization to show the highest paid athletes in the world, sans endorsements, and then broke it out by MLB/NHL/NBA/NFL as well. The Phillies have 3 of the top 10 paid players in baseball. The Phillies are 1.5 games...

Have the Cardinals lost their hitting with RISP magic?

There's no secret to the Cardinals success last year--clutch hitting. Their .330 average with runners in scoring position (RISP) led the majors.  Not only that, but their .330 mark was nearly 50 points higher than the next closest team, the Detroit Tigers, who hit .282 with RISP and they shattered the record for hitting with RISP, previously held by the 2007 Tigers, who hit...

Game 13: Brewers Come Face To Face With Reality

The Cardinals were 14-5 against the Brewers in 2013. A pretty absurd mark against a division rival. (They managed 12 wins against the Cubs, 11 against the Reds and 9 against the Pirates.) The Brewers were little brother and the Cardinals were holding the ball above their head, laughing as they tried to jump up and get it. But after a 10-2 start and in the midst of a 9 game winning...
