Is This The End For Pete Kozma & The Cardinals?

This week Pete Kozma was outrighted from the 40-man roster. So he’s gone? Right? He’s been cut? Most of the stories I saw on The Koz were regurgitations of the same line about him being ‘outrighted’ off the 40-man, assuming you and I know exactly all the implications of what that means. Maybe you do. But I didn’t. Thankfully Brian Walton of The Cardinal Nation explained: Because...

Disconnecting Pete Kozma and Aledmys Diaz

I engaged in a civil, but limited to 140-character Twitter discussion Monday afternoon with @stlcardscards. His initial post, which drew my attention, was the following (“him” refers to Aledmys Diaz). “The Cardinals risked losing him through the DFA process so that they wouldn’t have to put Kozma in AAA.” @stlcardscards wanted Greg Garcia in St. Louis during the season and he felt...

Why are Tony Cruz and Pete Kozma still on the Cardinals?

Excuse me while I complain about the team with the best record in baseball(and fans for that matter, according to popular opinion and Deadspin). The St. Louis Cardinals have won a lot of games(63 to be exact) and when a writer picks at that shiny emblem of greatness, he can be scolded. As I wrote a couple of weeks ago via KSDK, John Mozeliak’s roster management is troubling at times...

St Louis Cardinals: Hot/Cold Spring

The St. Louis Cardinals are off to a 9-7 start in Spring Training for 2015, but what matters more than records in the baseball world in March are individual performances. Through 16 spring games, the Cardinals have many players both struggling and on hot streaks as they prepare for opening day in 2 weeks. Let’s take a look at who’s hot and who’s not: Hot Pete Kozma: Out of minor...

St. Louis Cardinals trade rumors: Pete Kozma edition

It appears that Pete Kozma’s time with the St. Louis Cardinals is coming to an end. Once known for helping the Cards in their 2012 and 2013 postseason runs, Kozma looks on the outs with the ball club. Kozma was recently called up from Triple-A affiliate Memphis Redbirds in order to add infielder depth to the roster. After the never ending injuries at the pitching position, Kozma...

What should the St. Louis Cardinals do at shortstop?

The 2013 St. Louis Cardinals were a complete team, with quality contributions coming from all areas, culminating in a division crown and a trip to the World Series.  The Cards had very few weaknesses, but the most glaring of which was the shortstop position.  The offensive production from Pete Kozma and Daniel Descalso was anemic and their defense was not enough to make up for it...

St. Louis Cardinals’ Pete Kozma Is Great

What?! you say, how could a shortstop with a .217/.275/.273 batting line and one home run possibly be anything less than terrible? Pete Kozma possesses a wRC+ of 50. Six pitchers managed a better mark than that. He compiled 0.0 WAR, there must be thirty guys that played for the St. Louis Cardinals in 2013 that fared better. Well, if you’re letting WAR or those other sabermetrics...
