Buffa’s Bullets: Kershaw Shows Class Towards Cardinals

What are your feelings on bullet rounds, readers? What is a bullet round? Let me explain.Back in the day, before I spread my material across a few websites and built a following on Twitter, I wrote weekly bullet rounds to a small group on my email list. Every week, I would pummel a 2,000 word rant about sports to about 20 people and unclog the head. It was therapeutic for me and...

A look at the five biggest stories from this past week at CardinalsFarm

It was a big week here at CardinalsFarm.com as I reached out to Dan Buffa, a fellow Cardinals writer, and asked if he wanted to join our team. Dan did not take much time in making his decision and joined on Tuesday night. His first article was up on Wednesday and he since has written another one. Dan’s addition to the team has re-energized myself and I get the feeling it has also...

Jim Edmonds to Join Cast of The Real Housewives?

Confession time. I was fine with John Rocker competing on “Survivor: San Juan del Sur – Blood vs. Water” this past September. I actually, kinda wanted to see the onetime Atlanta Braves closer stick around longer than he did. I’m even okay with Johnny Damon taking his turn vying for Donald’s Trump’s attention on “Celebrity Apprentice”.  Sure, he hasn’t done much...

Cardinals: Sam Tuivailala gives bullpen a high octane wild card

The St. Louis Cardinals have made some sexy moves this offseason, most notably the acquisition of Jason Heyward (of course, a position player).  But his former teammate Jordan Walden came over in the trade to solidify the back-end of the bullpen as well, and it is a move that should not be overlooked. Speaking of being overlooked, nor should another very promising prospect that...

The St. Louis Cardinals All-Organization Team: The Bench

Over the next couple of weeks, I will be selecting the Cardinals organizational All-Star team. The team will be structured like a 25-man roster.

St. Louis Cardinals Baby Birds: A look at 3 hitters looking for a bounce back season

A new season provides a fresh start for players who may have struggled the season before. While the previous season’s numbers will always be on the baseball card, the new season starts fresh with zeros across the board. I have identified five players who would probably tell you their 2014 season was not what they would have hoped. Now, I am not calling these players busts or saying...

Give Kolten Wong Some Time To Grow

Kolten Wong carried plenty of demons into the 2014 season. Everybody around the globe remembered his exit in 2013. Getting picked off first to end a World Series game at Busch Stadium. The tears in Wong’s eyes as he confronted the media after the game and the honesty he provided to the reporters. When I saw him at the Winter Warmup a year ago, he was ready to put that all behind...

Xavier Scruggs Offers Internal Solution to Power Outage for St. Louis Cardinals

The St. Louis Cardinals have been successful by almost any standard. The team has consistently found itself in the postseason. They have managed to develop talent at most key positions on the field.

St Louis Cardinals: will the offense improve?

The Cardinals offense saw a meteoric drop in 2014 after a record-setting 2013 numbers failed to carry over. The two main factors for this: Carlos Beltran’s departure and the lack of any production from Allen Craig whatsoever. This offseason saw no major departures and several upgrades. Does it all add up to a return to being an elite offense in 2015?   No need to cover the losses...

Jaime Garcia: Secret Weapon or Ultimate Liability

I picture myself as Jaime Garcia some days. I wake up and wonder what I should think about all this offseason starting pitching trade talk swirling around my team, the St. Louis Cardinals. I wonder if I should be worried or possibly find  a pitching mound and kneel down and pull a Tebow. What is my spot on this team in 2015? Where do I belong? What do fans think? What does my general...

Seeking power, Cardinals won't mind strikeouts

ST. LOUIS (AP) The St. Louis Cardinals are prepared to live with the swings and misses, knowing that when Mark Reynolds connects the ball really travels. They have lacked a power bat off the bench, or power anywhere for that matter, and Reynolds also could platoon with Matt Adams at first base. Manager Mike Matheny promises he won't have batting coach John Mabry tinker too much...
