    Lance Lynn is Out; Joe Kelly is In

    The Cardinals made it official over the weekend: Lance Lynn is on his way to the bullpen. Replacing him in the rotation will be Joe Kelly, who did such an admirable job filling in for Jaime Garcia this season while the lefty was on the disabled list.

    The Cards Turn Back the Clock -- To 2003

    Hey, who here remembers the year 2003? Yeah, I sure do too. It was a magical time for our great nation; Coldplay had yet to become the source of shame they would later, Mitsubishi commercials simultaneously aroused us, irritated us, and kind of made us want to buy our girlfriends pink Kangol hats. N ... More >>

    The Pythagorean Blues

    You know, it hasn't been the easiest season so far for the Cardinals. Don't get me wrong; it hasn't been a really miserable season of nothing but struggles, by any means. But when you looked at this team on paper before the season started, it looked like a team that should have comfortably taken the ... More >>

    Should We Be Worried About Cardinals' 0-4 Slump?

    The Cardinals are mired in their first real slump of the season. That's not to say the Cards haven't faced any adversity before now, of course; there have been a couple of really tough losses already in 2012, and they have seemed to come in bunches, little clusters of misery amidst what has bee ...

    The Return of the Filthy Sanchez

    The Cardinals made a roster move today, attempting to shore up a recently shaky bullpen by recalling Eduardo Sanchez, aka Dirty Sanchez, aka Filthy Sanchez, aka Fast Eddie, aka Fritz von Filthington, aka The Southern Dandy (note: none of these are real nicknames, but they all should be), from Triple ...

    Kyle McClellan Back On the Block?

    ​For most of the offseason it's been a poorly-kept secret the Cardinals are trying to move Kyle McClellan. They signed him back in January to a $2.5 million contract for the 2012 season, and pretty much from the moment the ink dried on the deal K-Mac's name has been floating around as potential tr ...

    Of Adam Wainwright & Backup Catchers: Spring Training Notes 03/13/12

    ​Thanks to the magic of modern technology, I got to watch Adam Wainwright make his second start of the spring this afternoon; it was extremely comforting to see him back on the mound.

    A New Entry in The History of Bad Officiating

    Oh, sure. I could have gone with a picture of Russel Crowe or Kirk Douglas here, but I like to think you all expect a little more thought put into the joke pictures we use here at the RFT. ​A funny thing came on the newsfeed on my sidebar the other night. I was just typing away, trying to get some ... More >>

    Cardinals Still Struggling to Spell Relief

    How come when he says it it's cute, but when I say it it's sexual harassment? ​The Cardinals are currently carrying eight -- count 'em -- eight relievers. So can anyone tell me why, exactly, we all had to watch one of the worst relievers in all of baseball this year blow last night's game?&nb ... More >>

    Keith Law Releases New Prospect Rankings; Two Cardinals Make the List

    ​Keith Law, ESPN's prospect guru, released his updated rankings of the top 25 minor league prospects Tuesday, and the first couple names on the list aren't really all that surprising.

    Cardinals Pitcher Eduardo Sanchez: Human After All

    The way I picture Eduardo Sanchez in my head. ​I say Eduardo Sanchez may be human after all not because he got beaten Wednesday night. Every pitcher, no matter how good, is going to get hit sometimes. No, I say he may be human after all because Sanchez showed a flaw Wednesday night, an actual weak ... More >>

    The Rise of Mitchell Boggs

    ​The bullpen has been a serious concern for the Cardinals in the early going, with a closer who can't seem to close a game leading the list of worries. They're down to just one lefty, never a good thing on a Tony La Russa-led team, Jason Motte has looked shaky in the early going (though, to be fai ... More >>
