    How do the Royals keep doing this? After watching their Game 1 win in the ALDS, Joe Posnanski still isn’t sure.

    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 2014 season.

    Troubling news Wednesday out of Cardinals camp. Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports that Peter Bourjos has been held out of Grapefruit League action since Sunday because of what’s being called a “tight leg.” Bourjos has already been ruled out for Thursday’s Grapefruit League tilt with the Twins and it’s not clear when he might be…

  6. Ranking the best off-seasons so far

    We’re almost into 2014, which means we’re only about a month and a half away from pitchers and catchers reporting to spring training — the official start of baseball. Most of the big name free agents are off the board and thus most teams have already finished shopping or have done most of the heavy…

  7. With little payroll maneuverability, Angels may have to trade to bolster rotation

    The Angels signed reliever Joe Smith to a three-year, $15.75 million deal on Saturday, just a day after adding third baseman David Freese and reliever Fernando Salas in a trade for Peter Bourjos and prospect Randal Grichuk. As a result, the Angels have about $8 million left before hitting the $189 million luxury tax threshold,…

  8. Report: Angels sign Joe Smith to three-year, $15.75 million deal

    The setup market is all set up: Joe Smith and the Angels have come to terms on a three-year contract, according to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com. Yahoo! Sports’ Tim Brown reports that it’s worth $15.75 million. Obviously, it’s a big price for a pretty anonymous guy, but Smith has a 2.97 ERA since entering the…

  9. Cardinals trade David Freese to Angels for Peter Bourjos

    UPDATE: Well, that progressed from rumor to trade in a hurry. Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that the Angels have traded center fielder Peter Bourjos and outfield prospect Randal Grichuk to the Cardinals for third baseman David Freese and reliever Fernando Salas. Obviously the Angels are betting that Freese will bounce back following a down…

  10. John Gast exits early with shoulder injury

    May 25, 2013, 9:00 PM EST

    St Louis Cardinals v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Cardinals starter John Gast exited today’s start against the Dodgers after recording just three outs. Gast walked Scott Van Slyke on five pitches to lead off the second inning before being taken out of the game with shoulder tightness, tweets Jenifer Langosch. This was the third start of the 24-year-old’s young career. He had allowed…

  11. Diamondbacks top Cardinals in 16-inning marathon

    Apr 4, 2013, 3:27 AM EST

    St Louis Cardinals v Arizona Diamondbacks

    No one told Josh Collmenter and Mitchell Boggs that it’s too early in the season for games to be lasting past 3 a.m. It took nearly 5 1/2 hours, but the Diamondbacks edged the Cardinals 10-9 in 16 innings Wednesday to claim two out of three in the opening series in Arizona. Cliff Pennington singled…

  12. Cardinals’ lack of action could be their undoing

    Feb 21, 2013, 11:59 PM EST

    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. Cardinals will try to finish off the Giants in five

    Oct 19, 2012, 12:43 AM EST

    San Francisco Giants v St Louis Cardinals - Game Four

    Is everyone all geared up to see the NL’s fifth best team and the AL’s seventh best team square off in the World Series? Of course, the Cardinals and Tigers have genuinely looked like baseball’s best teams during October. And if some would prefer neither had reached the postseason because they weren’t all that good…

  14. Cardinals defeat Giants to take commanding 3-1 lead in NLCS

    The Cardinals are just one win away from joining the Tigers in the World Series. Behind an excellent pitching performance from Adam Wainwright and a relentless attack from their offense, the Cardinals defeated the Giants 8-3 tonight and now own a commanding 3-1 series lead in the NLCS. Wainwright had his curveball working tonight and…

  15. Cardinals blow late lead, lose in Chris Carpenter’s return

    Sep 21, 2012, 6:53 PM EST

    Chris Carpenter

    The good news for the Cardinals is that Chris Carpenter, originally thought to be out for the season after surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome, turned in a successful five-inning stint Friday in his 2012 debut. The bad news is that the bullpen blew a two-run lead in the ninth, and the Cards went on to…

  16. Cardinals outlast Dodgers to reclaim wild card lead

    Jon Jay

    This weekend’s series in Los Angeles settled nothing, as the Cardinals beat the Dodgers in 12 innings Sunday to split a four-game series. Shelby Miller, long the Cardinals’ No. 1 pitching prospect, earned his first major league victory and John Ely, the Dodgers’ ninth pitcher of the day, took the loss in a 5-2 game…

  17. Cardinals pick an injury, place Jaime Garcia on disabled list

    Jun 7, 2012, 4:46 PM EST

    Jaime Garcia

    Last week when the Cardinals skipped Jaime Garcia‘s turn in the rotation they said it was for an elbow injury, but after he got knocked around in his return start they revealed that he was also dealing with shoulder and hip problems. Today they placed Garcia on the disabled list and the official reason is…

  18. Kyle Lohse dominates the Marlins, spoils their big night in their new home

    Apr 4, 2012, 10:15 PM EST

    St Louis Cardinals v Miami Marlins

    With all apologies to the Athletics and Mariners, baseball is now really back, thanks to a game being played in this hemisphere, at an hour we could all see it and on actual television. The Cardinals beat the Marlins 4-1. Our hemisphere, yes, but it often felt like a different universe.  One in which lime…

  19. Running down the rosters: St. Louis Cardinals

    Feb 13, 2012, 6:00 PM EST

    2011 World Series Game 7 - Texas Rangers v St Louis Cardinals

    The World Series champion Cardinals will go it without Albert Pujols, but the additions of Adam Wainwright (back from Tommy John surgery) and Carlos Beltran should sufficiently make up for that. On paper this year’s team looks just as good as the one that won it all. Of course, last year’s winners wouldn’t have sniffed the postseason…
