  1. Lance Lynn opens 5-0 for second straight season

    May 1, 2013, 6:10 PM EDT

    Lance Lynn

    Cardinals right-hander Lance Lynn beat the Reds on Wednesday to become the NL’s first five-game winner this year. In so doing, he started a second straight season 5-0. The 25-year-old Lynn is the fifth pitcher in 2000 to start back-to-back seasons 5-0. Pedro Martinez actually did it three straight years: Martinez: 5-0 in 2000, 6-0…

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

    Dustin Pedroia, Joel Peralta, Jose Lobaton

    Red Sox 3, Rays 2: Mike Napoli‘s RBI double in the ninth sent everyone home happy. The happiness would last less than an hour after game time, sadly. The Red Sox are now in Cleveland, which all things considered is probably a good thing. Padres 6, Dodgers 3: No one threw at anyone, so that’s…

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

    Robinson Cano, Yan Gomes

    Yankees 14, Indians 1: “Man, where are the Yankees going to get any offense with all of their big hitters on the DL?” no one is asking today like they asked so much last week. I guess nowadays everybody wanna talk like they got somethin to say, but nothin’ comes out when they move their…

    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…

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

    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…

  6. 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:…

  7. Lance Lynn is in The Best Shape of His Life

    Feb 8, 2013, 5:47 PM EDT

    Lance Lynn

    Add another name to the list, from Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post Dispatch: Cardinals righthander Lance Lynn, who was challenged and helped by the club to improve his fitness level during the offseason, arrived at the team’s complex Friday with a tightened haircut, no beard, and a significantly slimmed-down frame. Teammates joked they…

  8. 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…

  9. The National League is poised to have some excellent rotations

    Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez

    Even with Zack Greinke and Anibal Sanchez still up for grabs, the National League already seems set to sport some excellent rotations in 2013. How about this for the top four: Nationals: Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez, Jordan Zimmermann, Dan Haren, Ross Detwiler Giants: Matt Cain, Madison Bumgarner, Tim Lincecum, Ryan Vogelsong, Barry Zito Phillies: Roy…

  10. Indians want young starting pitching for Asdrubal Cabrera

    Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported late last week that the Cardinals have interest in acquiring shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera from the Indians this offseason. And if the source giving information to ESPN’s Buster Olney is to be believed, there might just be a match: Not surprisingly, the Indians have targeted young starting pitching as they begin…

  12. Cardinals GM calls re-signing Kyle Lohse “unlikely”

    Oct 25, 2012, 1:18 PM EDT

    Kyle Lohse Getty

    Kyle Lohse is hitting the open market coming off back-to-back career-years and today Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak admitted that re-signing the free agent right-hander is “probably unlikely.” Some of that no doubt has to do with Lohse being in line for a big contract, but even if he were somewhat affordable the Cardinals have…

  13. Cardinals likely to be even stronger in 2013

    Oct 23, 2012, 12:13 AM EDT

    Trevor Rosenthal

    It won’t take the sting out of Monday’s Game 7 loss to the Giants, but the Cardinals have a great chance of being a better team in 2013 than they were this year. The Cardinals’ only key free agents are Kyle Lohse and Lance Berkman. Berkman didn’t contribute this year anyway, and the Cardinals have…

  14. Giants blow past Cardinals in Game 7 of NLCS to advance to World Series

    The Giants have faced elimination six different times this postseason. Yet they are still standing. Game 7 of the NLCS wasn’t much of a contest, as the Giants topped the Cardinals 9-0 at AT&T Park in San Francisco this evening to win the National League pennant and advance to the World Series against the Tigers.…

  15. Barry Zito, Bruce Bochy and Mike Matheny discuss Game 5

    Giants Reuters

    Here’s video of Barry Zito, Bruce Bochy and Mike Matheny discussing the Giants’ 5-0 win in Game 5 of the NLCS last night. After a gem of a start, I guess Zito can get away with wearing that fedora. Zito’s excellent and unexpected pitching performance has naturally received most of the attention, but don’t forget…

  16. Barry Zito shuts down Cardinals in Game 5 of NLCS to keep Giants’ season alive

    Oct 19, 2012, 11:14 PM EDT

    Reuters Barry Zito

    With the Giants facing elimination, Barry Zito didn’t inspire much confidence coming into his start in Game 5 tonight. However, he turned in the best performance by a Giants’ starting pitcher this postseason while keeping his team’s season alive. Zito limited to Cardinals to six hits over 7 2/3 shutout innings tonight as part of…

  17. Giants knock Lance Lynn out in fourth inning, grab 4-0 lead

    Oct 19, 2012, 9:32 PM EDT

    Lance Lynn Getty

    Just like his start in Game 1 on Sunday, the fourth inning was Lance Lynn‘s undoing tonight. After holding the Giants hitless over the first three innings, Lynn allowed four runs in the top of the fourth inning before being pulled. Lynn gave up singles to Marco Scutaro and Pablo Sandoval to begin the inning…

  18. Barry Zito gets out of jam to keep Cardinals off the board in Game 5 of NLCS

    The Cardinals had an excellent chance to grab an early lead in the second inning against Barry Zito, but the high-priced southpaw managed to escape unscathed. After Yadier Molina led off the inning with a single, David Freese dropped a double just beyond the outstretched glove of Hunter Pence, who attempted a diving catch. With…

    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…

    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.

    Gregor Blanco, Angel Pagan

    After going down 6-0 to the Cardinals in the top of the fourth, the Giants came right back and knocked Lance Lynn out of the game in the bottom of the inning, closing to within 6-4. However, they’ve been unable to make up any additional ground the last two innings, leaving them with a two-run…

    David Freese, Yadier Molina

    If the Giants are going to prevail tonight, they’ll have to duplicate the Cardinals’ comeback from Game 5 of the NLDS. David Freese and Carlos Beltran homered Sunday as the Cardinals built a 6-0 lead over the Giants in the NLCS opener. Freese’s two-run homer was the only scoring through three innings, but the Cardinals…
