  11. Cardinals send stud prospect Oscar Taveras to the minors

    Mar 13, 2014, 5:17 PM EST

    oscar taveras cardinals getty

    Oscar Taveras‘ recovery from last year’s ankle surgery has gone much more slowly than expected and has recently led to hamstring problems as well, and today the Cardinals optioned the 22-year-old stud outfield prospect to minor-league camp. That means Taveras will begin the season at Triple-A–and possibly on the Triple-A disabled list–after initially having at…

    Matt Adams projects to open the 2014 baseball season as the Cardinals’ starting first baseman and is preparing for that role with an extensive offseason diet and workout program. Listed last year at 6-foot-3 and 260 pounds, he showed off a much more slender physique this weekend at the Cardinals’ annual Winter Warmup fan festival…

  14. Cardinals GM explains the Jhonny Peralta signing

    St. Louis signing Jhonny Peralta to a four-year, $53 million contract with the intention of playing him at shortstop seemed to shock an awful lot of people, so I thought general manager John Mozeliak’s pre-signing comments about acquiring a shortstop were worth noting (via Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post Dispatch): One of the…

    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%…

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

    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…

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

    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…

    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.

    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…
