The team, which has not had a losing season in their least eight years, has won at least 90 games five times in that stretch and is predominantly run by the team’s youth, which seems to get better and...

What’d I Miss?

We’re a little over a week from having pitchers and catchers report to Jupiter FL and open Spring Training for the Cardinals. That’s cool. I took some time away this past week figuring that not much would happen. And judging by the Google News feed for the Cards,’nothing’ might be an overstatement.

How Would You Set Up The Rotation?

With nothing else to do, let’s do a little group thinking, shall we? When the Cardinals lost Lance Lynn for the year due to Tommy John surgery, they eventually picked up Mike Leake to fill that void.  However, few of us immediately slotted Leake into Lynn’s spot in the rotation.  Lynn was set up as the #2 starter in 2015 (though [...]

The Wainwrightization of Rick Porcello

I don’t know if you paid much attention to Rick Porcello last year, but I bet you have made a bad pancake. You know, one of those pancakes when you wait too long before you flip it. Or maybe you tried to make a pancake without preheating the cooking surface. The parallels work as well as any parallels do — you mess things up from the start, despite the best of intentions, but...

Johnny Keane’s mistake to leave the St. Louis Cardinals organization
