  2. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    May 9, 2012, 6:05 AM EDT

    Texas Rangers batter Josh Hamilton runs to the dugout after hitting his fourth two-run home run in the eight inning against the Baltimore Orioles in Baltimore

    Rangers 10, Orioles 3: Josh Hamilton: four bombs, eight RBI and 18 total bases on a 5 for 5 night.   Every time he does something awesome this year I imagine him muttering something about how dumb it was for Jon Daniels not to talk about a contract extension before the season began. Yankees 5,…

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

    Apr 16, 2012, 5:45 AM EDT

    Houston Astros v Miami Marlins

    Marlins 5, Astros 4: Omar Infante and Hanley Ramirez hit home runs, finally putting that crazy home run sculpture into action. Somehow we all survived, though I’m not ruling out the possibility that we all got thrown into an alternate timeline or something and won’t truly realize it until all the crazy occult stuff starts…

  4. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 10, 2012, 5:56 AM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v Texas Rangers

    Rangers 11, Mariners 5: According to Google Translate, a literal translation of “run support” in Japanese is サポートを実行する.  I have no idea if that covers the actual concept of run support, but I bet after last night Yu Darvish knows. He started out his major league debut by giving up four runs in the first inning…

  5. Springtime Storylines: Will the St. Louis Cardinals survive the loss of three legends?

    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 2012 season. Up next: The New-Look Redbirds. The Big Question: Will St. Louis be able to defend its World Series title this year in…

  6. Pirates starter Charlie Morton to begin year on disabled list

    Mar 29, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    St Louis Cardinals v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Last month Charlie Morton was said to be “ahead of schedule” in his recovery from October hip surgery, but the Pirates right-hander will begin the season on the disabled list. However, it’s not necessarily a setback, as the Pirates won’t need a fifth starter until April 14 and for now at least the plan is…

  7. Yadier Molina likely to become one of the highest-paid catchers ever

    Feb 23, 2012, 5:52 PM EDT

    Yadier Molina

    Just three catchers in big-league history have signed contracts worth in excess of $10 million per season. That’s about to change. Yadier Molina heads a class of four free-agent-to-be catchers, all of whom could find themselves in eight-figure territory with big 2012 seasons. Molina is probably the one sure thing in the bunch to draw…

  8. Jake Westbrook is in The Best Shape of His Life

    Feb 14, 2012, 2:30 PM EDT

    Jake Westbrook

    A few days ago I was lamenting the fact that we may be nearing the end of BSOHL season, but then I remembered that it really peaks when spring training starts and the writers tweet about players’ bodies a lot.  Like this: Jake Westbrook walked into Cards camp about 25 pounds lighter. Looks super trim.…

  9. Running down the rosters: St. Louis Cardinals

    Feb 13, 2012, 6:00 PM EDT

    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…

  10. UPDATE: No deal yet between Cardinals and Roy Oswalt

    Jan 28, 2012, 8:31 AM EDT

    UPDATE: Oswalt’s agent, Bob Garber, told Tim Dierkes of MLB Trade Rumors this morning that there’s “no chance” of his client pitching out of the bullpen. 8:31 AM: Hold your horses, everyone. When most of us went to bed, it appeared as though Roy Oswalt was St. Louis-bound. That may still be the case, but…

  11. Report: Reds and Ryan Ludwick agree to one-year, $2.5 million deal

    Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that the Reds and outfielder Ryan Ludwick have agreed to a one-year deal with a mutual option for 2013. He’ll be reunited with Walt Jocketty, who was the general manager during his time in St. Louis. According to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com, Ludwick will make a $2.5 million base salary…

  12. Cardinals sign Carlos Beltran to two-year, $26M contract

    According to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Cardinals agreed Thursday to a two-year, $26 million contract with free agent outfielder Carlos Beltran. The deal includes a no-trade clause. Beltran batted .300 with a .910 OPS, 22 home runs and 84 RBI in 142 games this past year between the Mets and Giants, and…

  13. If the Cardinals lose Albert Pujols…

    Dec 6, 2011, 8:23 PM EDT

    Albert Pujols, Matt Holliday

    Because that certainly seems to be the way things are going down at the moment. The Cardinals were supposed to be set at first base and in right field if Pujols departed, as Lance Berkman would move a first base position that fits him a whole lot better anyway and Allen Craig would take over…

  14. Report: Cardinals shopping Kyle Lohse to make room for Mark Buehrle

    Dec 5, 2011, 11:35 PM EDT

    Here’s an interesting one. Phil Rogers of the Chicago Tribune was told by a source that the Cardinals are trying to shop right-hander Kyle Lohse in an effort to make a run at free agent left-hander Mark Buehrle. Buehrle is from Missouri, so many have long speculated about him potentially winding up with his hometown…
