  1. Dan Quisenberry for the Hall of Fame

    Nov 5, 2013, 11:40 AM EDT

    Dan Quisenberry

    OK, so you have probably heard — there are 12 finalists on what the Baseball Hall of Fame is calling the Expansion Era Ballot. These are players, managers and executives who contributed during what the Hall (naturally) calls the Expansion Era — from 1973 to the present. Only problem is, that’s not really the Expansion Era.…

  2. Cardinals could trade Lance Lynn or Shelby Miller this offseason for a new shortstop

    Nov 3, 2013, 12:20 PM EDT

    cardinals logo

    Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch speculates on a possible offseason trade: With Carlos Martinez meriting a look-see as a starter — and [Trevor] Rosenthal wanting the same — it’s increasingly likely that general manager John Mozeliak shops Lance Lynn or Shelby Miller to simultaneously create an opening while addressing a core need at…

  3. The back-and-forth continues, Red Sox knot the game at 4-4 in the eighth

    Oct 26, 2013, 11:35 PM EDT

    World Series - Boston Red Sox v St Louis Cardinals - Game Three

    The Red Sox were responsible for the fourth lead-change of the night as they knotted Game 3 up at four apiece with a two-run rally in the bottom of the eighth against the exalted Cardinal bullpen. Carlos Martinez put the first two batters he faced on base, allowing a lead-off single to Jacoby Ellsbury, then…

  4. Cardinals’ injuries taking a toll with elimination near

    Oct 6, 2013, 9:03 PM EDT

    Justin Morneau, Matt Adams

    In some ways, the Cardinals are better off than most. They don’t lose much at first base with Matt Adams filling in for Allen Craig, and they’re still fine in the ninth since Trevor Rosenthal replaced the sore-shouldered Edward Mujica in the closer’s role. But the truth is that both injuries played huge roles in…

  5. Michael Wacha loses no-hitter with one out to go

    Sep 24, 2013, 9:55 PM EDT

    michael wacha getty

    We’re on the verge of history at Busch Stadium. Making good use of his vicious changeup and high-90s fastball, Cardinals rookie right-hander Michael Wacha has no-hit the visiting Washington Nationals through the top of the seventh inning. The Cardinals will carry a 2-0 lead into the bottom of the frame. Wacha has yielded just two…

  6. On Derek Jeter and other greats who had to keep playing

    Sep 13, 2013, 10:33 AM EDT

    Derek Jeter Getty

    There is really no doubt at all that Derek Jeter will return and play baseball in 2014. People talk about retirement and legacies and Willie Mays falling down in the outfield — and I’m sure there will be more of that talk all offseason — but I’m willing to wager you won’t hear Derek Jeter…

  7. Adam Wainwright pitches the Cardinals back into first place with gem against the Pirates

    Sep 7, 2013, 11:05 PM EDT

    Cardinals starting pitcher Adam Wainwright delivers a pitch to a Pirates batter during the first inning of their MLB National League baseball game in St. Louiss

    The NL Central continues to provide drama as September rages on, with the Cardinals and Pirates waging battle for first place in the division this weekend. Adam Wainwright brought his A-game with his team entering the night 0.5 games out of first place, as he shut the Pirates out over seven innings of work. He…

  8. Anthony Rendon, Miguel Sano rate as 2013′s top minor league performers

    May 21, 2013, 6:43 PM EDT

    Miguel Sano

    The top of the minor league OPS leaderboard is typically littered with Triple-A veterans and A-ball players too old for their leagues. That’s still the case this year, but numbers two, three and four on the list are all top prospects. Minor league OPS leaders (minimum 100 at-bats) Scott Van Slyke (26 Dodgers): 1.236 OPS…

  9. Handicapping the NL Rookie of the Year race

    Apr 2, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Jedd Gyorko

    The AL had an historic Rookie of the Year class last year, but this year, the NL appears to have the stronger group of the two leagues. The one issue: a lot of these talents are likely to have to wait until June or July for their opportunities, if they come this year at all.…

  10. 2013 Preview: St. Louis Cardinals

    Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2013 season. Up next: The St. Louis Cardinals. The Big Question: Can the Cards keep rolling? The Cardinals have made the playoffs nine times…

  11. Report: Cardinals interested in Lucas Harrell and Bud Norris

    Mar 16, 2013, 2:35 PM EDT

    Image (1) cardinals%20logo.jpg for post 4972

    Now that Rafael Furcal is done for the season following Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery, it’s not surprising to hear that the Cardinals are asking around about shortstops. But this report from MLB Network’s Peter Gammons indicates that they are also in the market for a starting pitcher. Cards are asking about a SS as…

  12. Cardinals’ lack of action could be their undoing

    Feb 21, 2013, 11:59 PM EDT

    Mike Matheny, Chris Carpenter

    It’s hard to blame the Cardinals for staying the course. Even with free agents Kyle Lohse and Lance Berkman set to depart, St. Louis ended 2012 with a roster that already looked like a winner entering 2013: Rotation: Adam Wainwright, Chris Carpenter, Jaime Garcia, Lance Lynn, Jake Westbrook, Shelby Miller, Joe Kelly, Trevor Rosenthal Bullpen:…

  13. The Indians are going to have an Albert Belle bobblehead day. And it’s glorious.

    Feb 14, 2013, 6:38 AM EDT

    Albert Belle bobble

    Albert Belle was widely reviled when he played. He committed all manner of bad acts on and off the field and he really, really pissed off reporters. When he retired, Bill Madden wrote this: “Sorry, there’ll be no words of sympathy here for Albert Belle. He was a surly jerk before he got hurt and…

  14. GM downplays odds of Cardinals re-signing Kyle Lohse after Chris Carpenter’s setback

    Feb 5, 2013, 2:49 PM EDT

    kyle lohse getty

    Today’s news that Chris Carpenter is unlikely to pitch in 2013 and may end up retiring seemingly opens the door for the Cardinals to bring back Kyle Lohse. After all, Lohse remains unsigned as the draft pick compensation attached to his free agency has scared teams off and the Cardinals wouldn’t have to forfeit a…

  15. Deep Thoughts: MLB Network and Miami edition

    Jan 31, 2013, 12:04 PM EDT

    Newman Seinfeld

    Some random thoughts from a busy morning: I was on MLB Network’s Hot Stove this morning talking about A-Rod. In a lot of ways I was presented as the heel, in the pro wrestling sense. Or, as host Matt Vasgersian put it, I was the Newman to Ken Rosenthal’s Seinfeld. Which is about right, I…

  16. Angels finalize five-year, $125 million contract with Josh Hamilton

    Dec 15, 2012, 12:25 PM EDT

    Josh Hamilton Getty

    FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal reports that Josh Hamilton has passed his physical with the Angels, making his new five-year, $125 million contract is official. He’s scheduled to be introduced at a news conference in Anaheim at 2:30 p.m. ET this afternoon. Per Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com, Hamilton’s contract includes a no-trade clause and is slightly…

  17. The Phillies are “asking around” about Koji Uehara

    Nov 21, 2012, 8:30 AM EDT

    Koji Uehara

    Random middle reliever rumors don’t exactly jazz me, but I like it when they remind me of fun things. So, from Rosenthal: The Phillies, in their search for a setup man, are asking around about Rangers righty Koji Uehara, whose $4 million salary in 2013 might be more than Texas is willing to pay. I like…

  18. The Dodgers are “aggressively pursuing” Torii Hunter…or not

    Nov 10, 2012, 3:59 PM EDT

    Torii Hunter

    UPDATE: Hold your horses, everyone. According to Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times, the Dodgers’ interest in Hunter has been overstated. Hernandez hears that Hunter’s agent approached the Dodgers, who agreed to take a meeting with him. You know how agents used to try to get the Yankees involved in order to get other…

  19. The Top 50 Free Agents of 2013

    Nov 2, 2012, 8:31 AM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    Earlier this fall I counted down the top 111 free agents of this offseason. Since then, several players have had their options picked up or contracts extended, taking them out of play.  With the free agent signing period beginning tonight, it’s a good time to update that list and count them down once again. Up first,…

  20. Jeff Nelson made one of the worst safe calls you’ll ever see

    Oct 14, 2012, 7:49 PM EDT

    Omar Infante, Robinson Cano

    My belief isn’t that we need more instant replay in baseball because umpire’s are incompetent. My belief is that it’s needed because a lot of things happen in baseball that are way too tough to call at normal speed. This, however, was not one of those plays. In the eighth inning of Sunday’s ALCS Game…

  21. NLDS Game 3 Live Blog: Cardinals vs. Nationals, baby!

    Oct 10, 2012, 12:31 PM EDT

    St. Louis Cardinals' Kozma hits a three run home run in front of Washington Nationals catcher Suzuki during the second inning in Game 3 of their MLB NLDS baseball series in Washington

    4:42 PM: Bryce Harper flies out to second and that’s the ballgame. Cardinals win 8-0 and take a 2-1 lead. The Nats’ backs are up against the wall. Stay tuned to HBT for some postgame analysis and all kinds of other things on a busy, busy evening of playoff baseball. 4:41 PM: Jayson Werth walks. He’s…

  22. Why Roger Clemens is going to pitch for the Astros

    Aug 31, 2012, 9:13 AM EDT

    Roger Clemens

    I was totally not surprised when it was revealed yesterday that the Astros are going to scout Roger Clemens’ September 7 start for the Sugar Land Skeeters. Heck, I was not surprised when the September 7 date was announced itself, because that set things up for a normal four days rest allowing Clemens to pitch…

  23. Dodgers set to get Gonzalez, Crawford and Beckett from Red Sox

    Aug 25, 2012, 8:23 AM EDT

    Carl Crawford Getty

    8:23 a.m. EDT update: Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that the deal is “pretty much done.” Beckett and Crawford have waived their no-trade rights and both teams have signed off on medicals, so we’re presumably waiting on approval from the commissioner’s office. 6:40 a.m. EDT update: According to Gordon Edes of ESPNBoston.com, the blockbuster deal…

  24. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 25, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Derek Norris

    I’m back after a week’s vacation. I wrote up a long sappy version of it last week, but here’s the short version: San Diego for five days, during which I took Mookie and Carlo to their first ever major league game to see the Rangers vs. the Padres last Monday night. It was a doubly…

  25. Kevin Youkilis expected to be traded soon

    Jun 23, 2012, 3:52 PM EDT

    Kevin Youkilis Reuters

    UPDATE, 9:35 PM ET: According to Rosenthal, the Indians are now considered a “longshot” to land Youkilis and the Dodgers have only had “minimal contact” with Boston’s front office. It sounds like it might come down to the White Sox and Pirates. 3:52 PM ET: Jim Bowden of ESPN.com and MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM…
