    Chris Perez Tells Off Cleveland -- Twice

    You might remember Chris Perez from his time here in St. Louis as a young fireballing reliever with shaky-at-best control. Or, you might remember him as the guy who was traded away for Mark DeRosa. (An ill-fated deal if ever there has been one; DeRosa got hurt and contributed virtually nothing for t ... More >>

    Jason Motte: Crazy? Awesome? Or Crazy Awesome?​You know, it's kinda funny how sometimes you fail to really recognize something right in front of your face, even when it's sort of a big deal. So it was for me. I was watching the Cardinals last night, watching Edwin Jackson allow eleven base runners in five and a third ... More >>

    Ryan Franklin vs. Matt Holliday: Playing the Blame Game

    ​So the question must eventually be asked, you know. I don't want to have to ask it, and I'm sure you probably don't want to have to try and answer, but the question will not just go away.

    Game Notes: Astros 4, Cardinals 3 08/27/09 -- An Ugly Loss​-- I hate Brian Moehler. A lot. It never fails to irritate me when the Cardinals get shut down by some journeyman pitcher, and it happens every single time they see Moehler. Somehow, he has still never lost to the Birds, despite being an incredibly mediocre pitcher overall. Hell, take ... More >>

    Jaime Garcia On the Comeback Trail

    Cardinals GM John Mozeliak was down in Florida last night to watch Jaime Garcia pitch. Could the youngster be in the bigs this season?​One of the Cardinals' best pitching prospects - probably the best, actually, at least until Shelby Miller signs - took another step last night in his attempt to re ...

    Game Notes: Cardinals 10, Dodgers 0 - A Vintage Ass Kicking

    -- Chad Billingsley is really, really good. It isn't often you see a pitcher with that kind of ability, that combination of velocity, movement, and location. Personally, I think Billingsley needs to learn to use both sides of the plate more effectively, as he essentially stays in the same area all g ... More >>

    Mark DeRosa Joins the Cardinals

    When I heard last night that the Cardinals had acquired Mark DeRosa for Chris Perez and a player to be named later, I went through what I like to call a three part response. Part one: "Hey, we got DeRosa! Sweet! Good job getting a deal done, Mo. Glad to see them upgrade the team." Part two ... More >>

    Roster Problems

    Yesterday afternoon, we saw what was, in my ever so humble opinion, the best start so far this year from a Cardinal go to waste. Chris Carpenter deserves some apologies, and a better outcome next time out. The question, of course, is how do you get him a better outcome next time?

    Maybe Duncan's Just Too Busy?

    Adam Wainwright has discovered a flaw in his delivery, and will shortly be back to perennial Cy Young contender form. He and Chris Carpenter, papier mache ace extraordinaire, were looking at some video yesterday, and, wonder of wonders, they found out what was wrong with Adam's mechanics! I'm a ... More >>

    Last Night: Tony Takes his Best Shot with Brad Thompson

    That very well may have been the worst game of the year. Now, I know that it's only the ninth game of this young season. I don't mean it was the worst so far.

    Dear Cardinals GM: Don't Waste Money on Brian Fuentes

    Okay. I've screamed. I've begged. I've pleaded. Nothing seems to work. No matter how much I rail against the idea, the Cardinals and their general manager, Mr. John Mozeliak, seem hell-bent on signing Brian Fuentes. I just don't know what else to do. But you know what? I love the Cardinals too ... More >>
