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

    May 14, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Joey Votto

    Reds 9, Nationals 6: Joey Votto hit three homers including a walkoff grand slam.  Yeah, that’ll play. The back end of the Nats bullpen continues to be horrific. Marlins 8, Mets 4: Earlier in the day Giancarlo Stanton hit a walkoff slam of his own capping a six-run bottom of the ninth for Miami. Heath…

  2. Braves sweep away Lance Lynn’s winning streak

    May 13, 2012, 5:56 PM EDT

    Lance Lynn

    Cardinals starter Lance Lynn is unbeaten no longer. He gave up three runs in six innings to take a loss Sunday as the Braves completed a three-game sweep in St. Louis. Tommy Hanson was the winner today in a 7-4 game. Carlos Beltran and Allen Craig homered for the Cardinals. Lynn had been 6-0 with…

  3. Chris Carpenter could begin throwing program in mid-June

    May 13, 2012, 10:40 AM EDT

    St Louis Cardinals Photo Day

    Cardinals GM John Mozeliak provided an update on the status of Chris Carpenter on Saturday. B.J. Rains of FOX Sports Midwest has the goods: “If I had to guess, sometime in mid-June hopefully we’ll be ready to start thinking about a throwing program,” said the general manager. “His strength is getting stronger and that’s measurable,…

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

    May 8, 2012, 6:05 AM EDT

    Justin Turner, Jordany Valdespin

    Mets 5, Phillies 2: I had been agitating for Jonathan Papelbon to pitch more. Specifically in tie games.  Well, he did here and gave up a game-losing three-run homer to Jordany Valdespin. I suppose we’ll let Cholly run the team from here on out. Marlins 4, Astros 0: Carlos Zambrano with the three-hit shutout pushes his ERA…

  5. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 26, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Royals celebration

    Royals 8, Indians 2: I keep hitting refresh on the scoreboard but nothing changes so, apparently, this is correct and the Royals actually won a game.  Billy Butler hit two homers as Kansas City beat up on Ubaldo Jimenez. Mets 5, Marlins 1: David Wright hit a two-run homer, giving him 735 RBI in his…

  6. Lance Lynn is the first starter to four wins this season

    Apr 25, 2012, 6:20 PM EDT

    Lance Lynn

    Just as everyone predicted, right? Lance Lynn, who was competing just to make the Cardinals as a middle reliever before Chris Carpenter got hurt this spring, won his fourth straight start Thursday by pitching eight innings of one-run ball against the Cubs. Lynn has allowed exactly one run in each of his four starts to…

  7. Chris Carpenter undergoing “battery of tests” on shoulder

    Apr 10, 2012, 10:22 PM EDT

    carpenter ws reuters

    Via Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch: Cardinals ace Chris Carpenter will undergo another battery tests this week on the nerves in his right shoulder, a process that should clear the righthander take the next step in his recovery, general manager John Mozeliak described this afternoon. If everything checks out fine, Carpenter could be…

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

    Boston Red Sox v Detroit Tigers

    There were only 14 games yesterday. On a Sunday. Because the A’s and Mariners didn’t play thanks to the Japan Series. Look, I don’t care if you want to start the season in Japan, but there should be a federal law against anything less than a full slate of games on a Sunday.  Anyway: Tigers…

  9. Chris Carpenter “out indefinitely” with nerve irritation in shoulder

    Mar 23, 2012, 4:53 PM EDT

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

    Chris Carpenter left Cardinals camp earlier this week with what was described as a neck injury, but after several days of testing by specialists he’s been diagnosed with nerve irritation in his shoulder. Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post Dispatch reports that Carpenter is “out indefinitely” with an injury similar to one he had…

  10. Chris Carpenter leaves Cardinals camp following setback with neck injury

    Mar 21, 2012, 10:00 AM EDT

    carpenter getty

    Whatever progress Chris Carpenter had made in his recovery from a neck injury has been wiped away, as Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post Dispatch reports that the veteran right-hander has left Cardinals camp “to be further examined by nerve specialists after experiencing renewed symptoms associated with a bulging cervical disc.” In other words:…

  11. Chris Carpenter “felt good” after 30-pitch bullpen session

    Mar 16, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Chris Carpenter celebrates after getting Texas Rangers' Mike Napoli to fly out and end the 6th inning of Game 5 of MLB's World Series baseball championship in Arlington

    Chris Carpenter‘s status for Opening Day remains in question because of a neck injury and the Cardinals are preparing Lance Lynn to potentially step into the rotation, but Carpenter was healthy enough to throw off a mound yesterday. He was throwing for the first time in nearly two weeks and Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports…

  12. Lance Lynn moving back to rotation with Chris Carpenter out

    Mar 12, 2012, 3:10 PM EDT

    Lance Lynn

    Fortunately for the Cardinals, Chris Carpenter got hurt in early March, rather than at the end of the month. Manager Mike Matheny made the curious decision last month to have Lance Lynn, Kyle McClellan and Mitchell Boggs all prepare as relievers this spring, even though those three guys seemed to be his next best rotation…

  13. Cardinals considering “Plan B” options in case Carpenter misses the start of the season

    Mar 11, 2012, 5:41 PM EDT

    carpenter reuters

    Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak spoke to ESPN 101′s Brian Stull on Sunday morning about Chris Carpenter‘s neck injury, which has been officially diagnosed as a bulging cervical disc. Mozeliak didn’t get into many specifics about the diagnosis nor did he speak about a recovery timetable for the 36-year-old right-hander, but he did admit there…

  14. You asked me questions on Twitter. So I shall answer them.

    Mar 1, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    The Question

    It was a long offseason, my friends. A light winter in these parts but a harsh one all the same. The usual offseason non-stories seemed even less-satisfying than normal. On a personal level, I spent many long, dark hours searching for meaning and happiness in a world that seemed uncompromising, unforgiving and indifferent to humanity.…

  15. Cardinals won’t stretch out Lance Lynn, Kyle McClellan

    Feb 20, 2012, 11:00 PM EDT

    Lance Lynn

    OK, yeah, boring headline; this one probably won’t get a lot of clicks. But it rates as a pretty curious decision to me. New Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said Monday that he doesn’t plan to stretch out any of his relievers, a group that includes former starters Lance Lynn, Kyle McClellan and Mitchell Boggs. In…

  16. 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…

  17. Lance Lynn is in the Best Shape Of His Life. Or close to it.

    Feb 8, 2012, 8:39 AM EDT

    lance lynn getty

    Best Shape Of His Life stories can come in all shapes and sizes. They don’t necessarily have to involve superstars, and they don’t always need to be presented in full-length feature articles. There are no rules for this phenomenon, you see. There is a logo now, but there are no rules. Enter Cardinals right-hander Lance…
