Guess who is leading the Cardinals in hitting?

With the heroics Tuesday night from St. Louis Cardinals Adam Wainwright, Matt Holliday and Jon Jay, the contributions of Matt Adams were perhaps not fully appreciated.

Now batting .346 on the season, Adams...

Lyons is solid in season debut but Cards' bats offer no support

The Mets have been high on the prospects of right-hander Jenrry Mejia for years. He showed why Monday night when he worked 6 2/3 scoreless innings to deal the Cardinals a 2-0 defeat. Mejia, 3-0 with a 1.99 ERA, struck out seven and didn't allow a Cardinal to reach second base until the sixth inning. The Cardinals, however, haven't been hitting anyone much lately. Only three...

St. Louis Cardinals Have Yet To Take Flight In 2014

The St. Louis Cardinals are off to a less than stellar start this season and in large part it is a result of three areas.

In addition, youngster Seth Maness, who led all Major League pitchers in...

Series Preview: St. Louis Cardinals

It looked for a while like it would be a devastating start to a long homestand. The Mets had lost two of their first three against Atlanta, with all of the positive momentum built up on the road being washed away with each Curtis Granderson out, but then, in the series’ final game, in the bottom of the 14th, the man they call Grandy came through.

Defense Hopefully Doesn’t Win Championships

Shane Robinson seems like a nice guy. How can anyone so tiny and scrappy not be super humble and ready to help your grandmother across the street at all times? If you asked him for his autograph, he’d probably return the favor by asking if he could help file your taxes. But if we’re trying to win baseball games, then Matt Holliday is probably a better option as a pinch hitter...

St. Louis Cardinals are momentum killers so far in 2014
