Yasiel Puig is really close with a particular family in Los Angeles, and that family has a 10-year-old Cardinals-loving boy who has made it his mission to exasperate the Dodgers’ eccentric outfielder….
“His mom calls him ‘The Cardinal,’” Puig deadpanned. “We don’t even know his name anymore. … I take him to the stadium, I put the tickets under my name, I introduce him to all of my teammates, and he shows up with a Cardinals shirt. He’s driving me nuts. I can’t win with him. His cousins all ...
Whitey Herzog talks about the 1985 World Series team.
Are the Cardinals really involved in all of this?
Will Boras really be able to convince a team to go $200 million on Scherzer?
9. Yankees: Hal Steinbrenner has been weighing Scherzer for weeks, but in recent days indications are Steinbrenner still isn’t ready to dive in, and they’ve said as much. Many rotation question questions carry over from last season, and it appears that for now at least, talented youngster Nate Eovaldi is the answer to McCarthy’s departure. Their starting group could be very good, but there’s a lot of uncertainty, from ...
Who are the Cardinals prospects of the year?
Do they need a full platoon or would a fill in for the most difficult match-ups get the job done?
While acknowledging that Tuesday’s Winter Meetings work gave him a better feel for which right-handed-hitting first baseman may be a fit for the Cardinals’ roster hole, general manager John Mozeliak also shed light on some internal candidates that could potentially address the need.
Reports, originating first from ESPN’s Jim Bowden, connected the Cardinals to lefty Jon Lester, who along with St. Louis native Max Scherzer are the top starting pitchers available as free agents. While Scherzer’s market is still percolating — not unusual for a headliner and Scott Boras client — Lester has drawn offers from Boston and the Chicago Cubs, according to reports. He has also made visits to teams, including the Cubs and Atlanta Braves. The Cardinals, as of this week, had no ...
Must have been disappointed in Heyward’s MVP showing.
The Cardinals have acquired right fielder Jason Heyward and right-hander Jordan Walden from the Braves in exchange for righty Shelby Miller and pitching prospect Tyrell Jenkins, the teams announced.
St. Louis Cardinals rookie outfielder Oscar Taveras was drunk at the time of his fatal car crash last month in his Caribbean homeland, an official in the Dominican Republic said Wednesday.
Tessie Sanchez, a spokeswoman for the Dominican attorney general’s office, told The Associated Press toxicology reports showed Taveras had a blood-alcohol level five times the country’s legal limit when he lost control of his car Oct. 26 on a highway in the tourist region of Puerto Plata.
She says the ...
I don’t know how to embed a photo but here is the link to the Twitter page with the photo. I thought this was very touching.
Wainwright had a surgical procedure done Friday on the backside of his pitching elbow, multiple sources have confirmed. Wainwright was said to have had the “ligament trimmed” in his right elbow, a Cardinals official said. The exact description was cartilage trimmed to avoid irritation in that area, subsequent reporting on the surgery by The Post-Dispatch confirmed.
No, the Cardinals haven’t disbanded. A lot of good Cardinals info in this article.
“We have forecasted increases over the next three to five years that will accommodate what we need to do with the young players we have,” Cardinals chairman Bill DeWitt told The Post-Dispatch this past week. “We knew as younger players matured at the major-league level they would get to arbitration and into free agency. We wouldn’t be able to retain them at the current payroll level, so we’re forecasting fairly significant increases in the next three to five years.”
Remember last week when the Cardinals were the model franchise?
“We can’t bring him in, in a tie-game situation. We’re on the road.”
Congrats to the Giants and their fans!
Buster Posey and the Giants already know how to win in October—even without all this help from the St. Louis Cardinals.
Strange as it might look sometimes, San Francisco finds a way to score just enough.
Can it get much weirder?
The three homers merely were opening acts. In terms of delivering a heart-pumping moment, Wong struck the most timely and powerful blow of them all.
Wong’s memorable, instant-classic swing shattered a 4-4 tie and gave the Cards a 5-4 victory that cleared the debris of a Trevor Rosenthal blown save, set off a red-draped celebration and ended an evening of swerving, unnerving, dramatic turns.
An interesting story about Ron Taylor.
Viva Larry Borowsky.
The Cardinals unite the city of St Louis as no other civic institution can. As the rest of the country has noted (with growing irritation), St Louisans take tremendous satisfaction in the success of our baseball team. Michael Brown was no exception; like almost every local kid, he identified as a proud member of Cardinal Nation. (The Cardinals hat he was wearing when he was shot rested atop his casket on the day of his funeral.) So, no doubt, do most of the officers who ...
Good luck to the Giants in the World Series!
I’d say we should wait until the end of this year’s postseason to make that determination.
No, the Dodgers don’t rank second behind St. Louis in the “Model franchise” standings, and neither do the Yankees. Maybe it’s the Giants, with their third NLCS appearance in five years, though they haven’t qualified for two straight postseasons since 2002-03. It certainly isn’t the Red Sox, who have registered two last-place finishes in the last three seasons.
You could make a case for the ...
