Where are the Cardinals’ Winning Streaks?

“Winning is contagious,” as the old line goes. So it is for the current edition of the Memphis Redbirds, winners of nine consecutive games. That matches the team-record winning streak established by the 2000 Pacific Coast League Champion Redbirds. It also ties the longest such stretch in the Triple-A circuit this season. Compare that to the parent St. Louis Cardinals. “Never...

Trying To Be Rational About Mike Matheny

Deep breaths. Deep breaths. The 2014 Cardinals were supposed to be a powerhouse. Coming off a World Series run in 2013 on the backs of a bunch of 21-23 year olds is pretty much a dream scenario for any franchise. Weaknesses at CF and SS were appeased by acquiring Peter Bourjos and Jhonny Peralta respectively. This team was locked and loaded for another deep playoff run. Then 2014...
