Cardinals: Appreciating Lance Lynn

Four years into his career, it’s still not easy for most to appreciate Lance Lynn. He throws a lot of pitches, puts guys on base and doesn’t make starts look easy, especially early on. Suspenseful moments follow a Lynn start, thus creating the word, “Lynning” last year. It’s too bad 2014 was the year Lynn grew up and became a man on the pitching mound. 2015 has continued...

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...

Report: Brewers, Cardinals talking Adam Lind?

The St. Louis Cardinals may need some help at first base.

But help could be coming from within the NL Central from the team that deployed...

An Examination Of The Corey Feldman Cardinals Minor League Performance

The State College Spikes located in State College Pennsylvania are the St. Louis Cardinals’ short season class A affiliate. They’ve been associated with the team since 2013. Previously, they’d had a relationship with the Cardinals from 1981 through 2006. Yesterday the Riverfront Times reported that the Spikes had apologized. For what you ask? Corey Feldman.

Cardinals Having Fun On The South Side

1. The go-to remark from Sox fans this week in and around U.S. Cellular Field? “This ain’t the North Side. This isn’t a ‘friendly’ rivalry”. It would sound way more ominous if more than 50% of the fans in attendance weren’t also wearing red. 2. I have to believe that the Sox wouldn’t mind having Cardinals Nation stop by The Cell multiple times per year. The place...

Lance Lynn has Mastered the Multi-sided Fastball

A lot of player interviews are a waste of time. This one isn’t. This is Lance Lynn, being interviewed in early June, after shutting down the Brewers: Lynn talks a lot about the fastball, which is appropriate, because Lynn threw 119 pitches in the game, and if his words are to be believed, exactly one […]

Why No St. Louis Cardinals Trades?

The perceived need for a trade to ease the ongoing offensive challenges for the St. Louis Cardinals was accentuated by an unlikely source over the weekend – a pair of extra-inning bullpen failures in which Pittsburgh prevailed both times. In the process, the red-hot Bucs closed the National League Central Division race to 2 ½ games. Some seem to have lost sight of the fact that...
