    John Axford

    The Indians removed the struggling John Axford out of his role as the team’s closer, and will go with a closer-by-committee for the time being.

  2. Ranking the bullpens: 2014 edition

    Feb 7, 2014, 9:00 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Atlanta Braves

    We tried this with the rotations the other day. Once again, I’ll be dipping into my 2014 projections here to rank the bullpens. To come up with the following bullpen ERAs, I simply combined each team’s seven highest-IP relievers, according to my projections. AL Royals – 2.93 Red Sox – 3.14 Athletics – 3.16 Rangers…

  3. Chris Carpenter could return as a reliever

    Chris Carpenter

    The Cardinals’ starting rotation is doing quite well thus far, leading baseball with an aggregate 2.07 ERA. Their bullpen, on the other hand, brings up the rear at 5.67. They have lost Jason Motte for the season as the right-hander will undergo Tommy John surgery. Mitchell Boggs‘ stint at closer was short-lived as his 12.66…

  4. Cardinals demote Marc Rzepczynski to Triple-A

    St Louis Cardinals v San Francisco Giants - Game Six

    Suddenly that video from last week in which Cardinals teammates unsuccessfully tried to spell Marc Rzepczynski‘s name isn’t so funny. St. Louis has demoted Rzepczynski to Triple-A following a rough start to the season that included the left-hander allowing seven runs on 13 hits in eight innings. Rzepczynski hasn’t been in the minors since 2010…

  5. Watch the Cardinals try to spell Marc Rzepczynski’s name

    Annual Scripps National Spelling Bee Held In Washington, DC

    Daniel Descalso and Joe Kelly have spent more than a year as Marc Rzepczynski‘s teammates, but they both had a lot of trouble trying to spell the Cardinals left-hander’s last name: My favorite part is both Descalso and Kelly claiming that they used to be able to spell it, but have since lost the ability.…

  6. Reds score nine times in ninth to embarrass Cardinals 13-4

    Apr 8, 2013, 7:40 PM EDT

    Mitchell Boggs

    The joke was on Shin-Soo Choo for most of Monday’s Reds-Cardinals game, as the newly converted center fielder dropped a pair of Yadier Molina flyballs to give St. Louis three of its four runs. Then came the top of the ninth inning. With Cardinals closer Mitchell Boggs in a 4-4 game, the Reds exploded —…

  7. 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:…

  8. Cardinals avoid arbitration with Marc Rzepczynski

    Feb 1, 2013, 2:48 PM EDT

    St Louis Cardinals v San Francisco Giants - Game Six

    Marc Rzepczynski and the Cardinals have avoided arbitration with a one-year deal. Rzepczynski requested $1.3 million in his first year of arbitration eligibility and the team countered at $900,000 after the left-hander threw 47 innings with a 4.24 ERA and 33/17 K/BB ratio. It’ll be interesting to see what type of role Rzepczynski has this…

  9. Arbitration filings: Chase Headley’s $10.3 million request leads way

    Jan 18, 2013, 6:42 PM EDT

    Chase Headley

    The Padres’ Chase Headley, the Reds’ Shin-Soo Choo and the Tigers’ Max Scherzer are among those asking for big raises in arbitration.

  10. Mike Matheny gets outmanaged as Cards lose Game 1

    Oct 7, 2012, 7:21 PM EDT

    Mike Matheny

    The biggest hit in Sunday’s Game 1 came about because the Nationals got the matchup they wanted and the Cardinals didn’t. Down 2-1 with two on and two out in the top of the eighth, Nationals manager Davey Johnson sent up lefty Chad Tracy to hit in the pitcher’s spot in the order. The Cardinals…

  11. Tyler Moore pushes Nationals in front of Cardinals with two-run single late in NLDS Game 1

    The Nationals and Cardinals have both wasted big scoring chances throughout this NLDS Game 1 at Busch Stadium in St. Louis. But in the top of the eighth inning Washington finally broke through. Tyler Moore, a 25-year-old rookie serving as a pinch-hitter, guided a Marc Rzepczynski pitch into shallow right field to score Michael Morse…

  12. Chipper Jones sadly goes out with a whimper

    Oct 5, 2012, 8:52 PM EDT

    Chipper Jones

    Future Hall of Famer Chipper Jones just wrapped up one of the better final seasons in major league history, hitting .287/.377/.455 with 14 homers and 62 RBI at age 40. Unfortunately, the all-too-brief postseason wasn’t nearly as kind. Jones botched a double-play ball, contributing to a three-run fourth inning, and went 1-for-5 at the plate…

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

    Mar 11, 2012, 5:41 PM EDT

    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. Cardinals choose cash instead of players to complete July swap with Blue Jays

    Dec 13, 2011, 12:16 PM EDT

    stack of money

    As part of July’s eight-player swap with the Blue Jays that was headlined by Colby Rasmus and Edwin Jackson the Cardinals received three players to be named later or cash considerations. Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports that St. Louis has opted for cash instead of players in all three instances, although the exact dollar amounts…
