Wild Wednesdays: April Showers

The final entry in the full-season preview holds a special place for me on multiple fronts. Peoria was a natural fit for the Cardinals as far as logistics are concerned, but the Chiefs also offer a storied history as well. I grew up in the Quad-Cities and quickly fell in love with the Midwest League. [...]

St. Louis Cardinals: Is Matt Holliday Still Worth The Money?

Cardinals pick Carlos Martinez as 5th starter in pitching rotation

  Before spring training, St. Louis manager Mike Matheny asked pitcher Carlos Martinez to work on controlling his emotions. Martinez took that advice, maybe even too far.
