    Pete Kozma

    Mark Ellis is back from a spring training knee injury, so the Cardinals have activated the veteran second baseman from the disabled list. And to make room on the 25-man roster they demoted last season’s starting shortstop, Pete Kozma, to Triple-A.

    Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that the Cardinals are shopping shortstop Pete Kozma, who is currently on the outside looking in for an Opening Day roster spot with the defending National League champions. Rubin says the Mets probably aren’t interested because Kozma is “not really” an upgrade over projected starting shortstop Ruben Tejada.…

    Jhonny Peralta

    On August 5 last season as a member of the Tigers, shortstop Jhonny Peralta accepted a 50-game suspension for his involvement with Biogenesis.

    For much of the season Cardinals fans complained that the team never gave Triple-A shortstop Ryan Jackson a shot to replace Pete Kozma and now he’ll never get the chance. He was claimed off waivers by the Astros, whose general manager Jeff Luhnow ran the Cardinals’ farm system when Jackson was drafted in the fifth…

    Cardinals GM John Mozeliak is not being shy about his primary offseason strategy: Mozeliak made it clear to us this morning that he’d like to trade a young “starting pitcher”: for a “young controllable shortstop” XM 89 — JIM BOWDEN (@JimBowdenESPNxm) November 10, 2013 There are a couple of shortstop options on the free agent…

  7. Cardinals could trade Lance Lynn or Shelby Miller this offseason for a new shortstop

    Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch speculates on a possible offseason trade: With Carlos Martinez meriting a look-see as a starter — and [Trevor] Rosenthal wanting the same — it’s increasingly likely that general manager John Mozeliak shops Lance Lynn or Shelby Miller to simultaneously create an opening while addressing a core need at…

    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…

  12. Jarrod Saltalamacchia is having the worst of weeks

    Oct 27, 2013, 12:56 AM EDT

    World Series - Boston Red Sox v St Louis Cardinals - Game Three

    Don’t blame Will Middlebrooks for the fluky obstruction call that ended Game 3. Don’t blame umpire Jim Joyce, who made the gutsy choice to call it and give the Cardinals a 5-4 victory. Blame the guy who made the bad throw in the first place: Jarrod Saltalamacchia. The struggling Saltalamacchia shouldn’t have even been in…

    World Series - Boston Red Sox v St Louis Cardinals - Game Three

    The Red Sox were responsible for the fourth lead-change of the night as they knotted Game 3 up at four apiece with a two-run rally in the bottom of the eighth against the exalted Cardinal bullpen. Carlos Martinez put the first two batters he faced on base, allowing a lead-off single to Jacoby Ellsbury, then…

    This is fun. The crazy sequence where Craig Breslow threw away the ball when he tried to get Jon Jay at third base last night?  The one that resulted in the go-ahead and what proved to be the winning run scoring?  The only reason that happened is because Jon Jay failed to play baseball The…

  19. The overturning of the Pete Kozma play last night was a preview of the upcoming challenge replay system

    World Series Cardinals Red Sox Baseball

    Watching the umpires overturn Dana DeMuth’s awful call on the would-be double play ball dropped by Pete Kozma last night made me wonder about the upcoming expanded instant replay system. Hearing Joe Torre talk about it with Ken Rosenthal a couple of innings later made me wonder even more. My biggest takeaways from it are…

    BOSTON — You ever had one of those days when nothing goes right? I’m not talking about big and tragic things going wrong, no, just little things. Little stupid things.

  21. David Ortiz finds his stroke at perfect time

    World Series Cardinals Red Sox Baseball

    David Ortiz had one mammoth hit in the ALCS — a game-tying grand slam off Joaquin Benoit in Game 2 — but he finished just 2-for-22 for the series. Apart from the slam, he hadn’t driven in any runs in seven games. His Game 1 of the World Series shouldn’t have started any better. With…

    It took less than an inning for a horrible umpiring decision in what stands to be the final World Series before expanded instant replay is introduced. Enter Dana DeMuth (GIF from @BuzzfeedSports) DeMuth, the second base ump, said Cardinals shortstop Pete Kozma lost the ball on the exchange, giving the Cardinals an out on a…

    The 2013 World Series is off to a pretty horrendous start for the National League-champion Cardinals. Adam Wainwright walked Jacoby Ellsbury to open the bottom of the first inning and then gave up a one-out single to Dustin Pedroia. David Ortiz then hit a groundball to Cardinals second baseman Matt Carpenter that should have been…

    Matt Carpenter

    Post-season legend Carlos Beltran staked the Cardinals to an early lead in the top of the third with a line drive RBI single to center against Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw. The opportunity was set up by Cardinals second baseman Matt Carpenter, who worked an 11-pitch at-bat — including seven consecutive foul balls — against Kershaw…
