    It’s going to be a somber plane ride back to St. Louis for the Cardinals following Wednesday night’s World Series ouster at Fenway Park, but these birds will be playing on big stages for years and years to come. There may not be a team in baseball that is better-poised for an extended run of…

    Question 4. Statement: In baseball, the MVP award unequivocally should go to the best player. Strongly agree. Of course. What other option is there? 44.8% Agree. In close races, I might consider team performance and big moments. 40.7% Neutral. 2.7% Disagree. “Most valuable” is different. Factors like clutchiness and team performance must be considered. 9.2%…

  4. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny not doing his team any favors

    Oct 28, 2013, 11:58 PM EDT

    World Series Red Sox Cardinals Baseball

    It started with the lineup: Mike Matheny chose to go with Shane Robinson in center field in Game 5 and had him bat second, with Carlos Beltran dropping into the cleanup spot. On the surface, it didn’t seem like a great move. Maybe it would have turned out better had leadoff man Matt Carpenter gotten…

  5. Change of plans: Allen Craig and his injured foot are in the Cardinals lineup

    Oct 28, 2013, 5:50 PM EDT

    allen craig getty

    How desperate are the Cardinals for some offense tonight against left-hander Jon Lester? Before the game Allen Craig tested his injured foot in the hopes of playing first base, but it went poorly enough that manager Mike Matheny posted a lineup card with Craig on the bench and Matt Adams starting. And then less than…

    Busch before Game 4

    ST. LOUIS — Less than 24 hours after a crazy, exhausting game ended they strap it on again in a few hours and play another. To quote Earl Weaver for the second time today: This ain’t a football game. They do this every day. For the Red Sox, the only real change is the exile…

    Oh boy. You’re going to be hearing a lot about the ending of this one for a long time. Let’s set up the scene: Brandon Workman in for his second inning of relief. Matt Adams strikes out on a dropped third strike. Yadier Molina bloops a single to shallow right-center. Allen Craig pinch-hits. Reliever Koji…

    ALCS - Detroit Tigers v Boston Red Sox - Game One

    Daniel Nava, getting a much-anticipated start in left field over Jonny Gomes, delivered a game-tying RBI single in the sixth inning. Some would argue that Cardinals manager Mike Matheny deserves half of Nava’s credit, though. The inning started off innocently enough as Shane Victorino drew a walk off of Cardinals starter Joe Kelly. Dustin Pedroia…

    Jake Peavy went into his start in Game 3 of the World Series hoping to improve on his last start in which he allowed seven runs in three innings of work against the Tigers in Game 4 of the ALCS. The Cardinals aren’t playing nice, as they quickly got to Peavy in the bottom of…

    BOSTON — There seems to be quite a bit of talk about continuity going into this year’s World Series. Well, hey, it’s the Cardinals and the Red Sox again. Fourth time. That was the matchup in ’46, with Stan Musial and Ted Williams, Enos Slaughter and Johnny Pesky, Red Schoendienst and Bobby Doerr and that…

    Allen Craig has passed whatever tests he needed to pass, because Cardinals manager Mike Matheny announced that the injured first baseman will be on the World Series roster after not playing since September 4 due to a foot injury. Craig has been hitting for a while now, but the issue is whether his foot will…
