Cardinals: Should Yadier Molina’s weight loss be a bigger story?

I realize I am late to the party here, but I was doing some catching up on afternoon reading and the happenings down in Jupiter, Florida at the start of spring training for the St. Louis Cardinals. I had heard that Cardinals Gold Glove catcher Yadier Molina had reportedly lost 20 pounds or so, but I hadn’t yet seen the pictures. I saw that Bernie Miklasz had posted a video blog...

One Less Cardinals Retired Number is Good

I was asked in the comments section on Friday whether I was surprised that the St. Louis Cardinals re-issued Mark McGwire’s number 25. The recipient is recently-promoted bench coach David Bell, who moved off number 23. (That was news first disclosed here at The Cardinal Nation Blog back on February 9th, by the way.) My reply became so long, I turned it into this post instead...

Why Carlos Martinez Cannot be Traded

With the 2015 St. Louis Cardinals reporting to spring training, the subject of Oscar Taveras’ tragic death is again front and center. While memorializing the late outfielder is on the minds of some, the club is also reinforcing with Taveras’ teammates the importance of sound decision-making when drinking is involved. The entire subject of how to properly remember Taveras remains...

Looking at possible MLB debuts for Cardinals minor leaguers in 2015

Around this time each year, I try to predict the minor league players who could make their Major League debuts in that season. These are players who have never played an inning at the major league level. To determine how many players will make their debuts, I looked at the last 5 seasons. From 2010 to 2014 the Cardinals had 49 players make their debuts, or roughly 10 per season....

St. Louis Cardinals Manager Mike Matheny Does Something Cool.

As detailed here in an article by Derrick Goold, Mike Matheny did something cool. I admit, I’m not Matheny’s biggest fan, and have been very critical in the past, especially the preference he seems to have of playing veterans or “his guys” over rookies or trade acquisitions. I’ll probably be critical of him in the upcoming season [...]

A look at the second base depth in the St. Louis Cardinals minor league system

As we continue our Spring Training look at the depth within the St. Louis Cardinals organization, we are going to hit a position that has some solid depth.

Saying Final Goodbyes to 2014 Cardinals Free Agents

By the time minor league camp begins on Monday, March 9, I will post a refresh of the Roster Matrix here at The Cardinal Nation blog. A by-product is that last fall’s free agents will drop off the charts for the final time. Before that happens, I thought I would recap the action from this winter by those mostly now ex-Cardinals. St. Louis had 18 players become free agents following...
