    Lance Berkman is on the disabled list after aggravating his surgically repaired right knee, but Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports that the Cardinals first baseman “is now also experiencing discomfort in his left knee.” According to Langosch tests ruled out any structural damage, but Berkman did have surgery on his left knee in 2010 and…

    Cardinals manager Mike Matheny sent shivers through St. Louis earlier when he told reporters that something “developed today” with Allen Craig, who is out of tonight’s starting lineup against the Giants. As it turns out, there’s no reason for concern. According to B.J. Rains of FOX Sports Midwest, Cardinals GM John Mozeliak announced about an…

    New York Yankees v Detroit Tigers

    Tigers 7, Yankees 2: Justin Verlander was amazing, striking out 14. I’m not sure why Jim Leyland kept him in there for 132 pitches given that the Tigers had a five run lead by the sixth inning, but I guess the fans liked it. And heck, he was still throwing 100 miles per hour, so…

    Miguel Cabrera

    Tigers 10, Indians 8: I was at this game, and I gotta tell ya, until the 9th inning it was one of the more lame, butt-dragging tie games you’ll ever see. Omar Infante and Austin Jackson kept hitting, but apart from that the highlight until then was Joe West getting all ejecty for no good…

    Jaime Garcia can finally spot the finish line. The 26-year-old left-hander made his second minor league rehab start on Saturday evening at Double-A Springfield, surrendering just one run on two hits over 4 1/3 impressive innings. He struck out six and did not issue a walk while inducing six groundball outs. According to Kary Booher…

    The Cardinals surely have their fingers crossed right now, as Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Yadier Molina is out of tonight’s lineup against the Rockies due to a sprained right thumb and is scheduled to undergo X-rays when the team returns home to St. Louis tomorrow. Molina injured the thumb in…

    Rangers 11, Angels 10: Holy schnikes! The Angels jumped out to a 6-0 lead and the fans were booing Yu Darvish and the local nine. Then the comeback. Make that the comebacks. Four runs in the fifth and then single runs in the eighth and ninth to force extras. Then, down by three in the…

Wheeler, acquired from the Giants last summer for outfielder Carlos…

  10. Fernando Rodney is in very rare territory

    Aug 1, 2012, 7:00 PM EDT

    Fernando Rodney

    The Rays have had the magic touch with lightly regarded relievers before, but Fernando Rodney is easily their biggest success story yet. The 35-year-old Rodney recorded his 31st save Wednesday, moving himself into a tie for the major league lead, and lowered his ERA to 0.74 with a scoreless inning in a 4-1 win over…

    Pittsburgh Pirates v Chicago Cubs

    Pirates 5, Cubs 0: A rejuvenated A.J. Burnett came into a Wrigley Field with the wind blowing in from center against a Cubs team hours off of a significant selloff and tossed a one-hitter. Oh, and Neil Walker drove in all five Pirates runs. Rays 8, Athletics 0: James Shields pitched a very relieved “oh…

  12. Please stop the Juan Pierre-to-the-Reds ridiculousness

    Jul 30, 2012, 1:59 PM EDT

    Juan Pierre

    So, yeah, there seems to be a legitimate chance this is going to happen. But the Reds don’t need a leadoff hitter, and they certainly don’t need Juan Pierre. For starters, they have a perfectly good leadoff hitter, if only they’d use him there. Drew Stubbs strikes out a whole lot and has a disappointing…

  13. Anthony Rizzo delivers walkoff homer in Cubs’ win

    Jul 29, 2012, 6:06 PM EDT

    Rizzo walkoff

    Anthony Rizzo connected on what the Cubs hope is the first of many walkoff homers Sunday, taking Trevor Rosenthal deep in the 10th inning in a 4-2 win over the Cardinals. Here’s the video. It was the third homer in four games for Rizzo, who finished the day 3-for-4. The 22-year-old Rizzo has been streaky…

    Jul 27, 2012, 4:16 PM EDT

    travis wood cubs

    As of three weeks ago Travis Wood was pitching really well for the Cubs, starting 10 games with a 3.05 ERA, but he’s been in a free fall since the All-Star break. First he allowed eight runs against the Marlins on July 17, then he gave up seven runs against the Cardinals on July 22,…

    Oakland Athletics v Toronto Blue Jays

    Blue Jays 10, Athletics 4: Backatcha, Athletics. A night after the A’s slammed the Jays, Edwin Encarnacion hit a three-run homer to lead the charge for Toronto, ending the A’s seven game winning streak. This came after the A’s took a 3-0 lead, so nice moxie by the Blue Jays there. Mets 3, Diamondbacks 1:…

    Francisco Rodriguez

    Phillies 7, Brewers 6: It’s hard to imagine a more demoralizing series than the one the Brewers just experienced. In all three games they fell victim to last inning rallies. This one after their own rally brought them back from a 5-1 deficit, tied with a Ryan Braun homer in the eighth. Then they take…

  18. Hanley Ramirez goes 2-for-4, triples in Dodgers debut

    Jul 26, 2012, 12:35 AM EDT

    Hanley Ramirez

    Batting fifth and playing third base, Hanley Ramirez tripled in his first at-bat with the Dodgers and later added an RBI single, but it wasn’t enough as the club lost to the Cardinals 3-2 in 12 innings. Ramirez is expected to move back to shortstop for the Dodgers, but since he hadn’t played there at…

    From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch comes this: Cardinals lefty Jaime Garcia faced hitters Tuesday in Jupiter, Fla., and he could one more workout away from a rehab assignment. That final workout will happen Friday afternoon and will involve Garcia throwing around 45 pitches. If all goes smoothly, he should make his first rehab start late next…

    Actor Sherman Hemsley dies at age 74 portrayed George Jefferson

    Holy moley, an awful lot of big news happened overnight. Ramirez a Dodger? Cole Hamels almost remaining with Philly? There were even some games! Athletics 7, Blue Jays 2: The A’s are streaking. That’s six in a row. Derek Norris hit a two-run homer and Yoenis Cespedes drove in three with a single. The A’s success at…

  21. Cardinals lineup “juggling” may mean less Lance Berkman

    berkman ap

    Lance Berkman has started five of eight games since returning from knee surgery and both the switch-hitting first baseman and manager Mike Matheny indicated that the reduced workload may be a long-term plan. Not only is keeping the 36-year-old healthy a big consideration, the Cardinals have a logjam of capable hitters and Berkman explained to…

    Pardon me if I seem discombobulated, but I’m suffering from weekend movie whiplash. On Friday night I saw “The Dark Knight Rises.” Yesterday I saw “Safety Not Guaranteed.” If you can find me two movies out right now that are more dissimilar in terms of tone, themes, budget and every other single other relevant measure,…

    The St. Louis offense awoke with a bang in the seventh inning of Saturday evening’s game against the rival Cubs. And what followed was historical. The Cardinals poured in 12 runs, tying a franchise record set in 1926, before pinch-hitter Tony Cruz struck out swinging to end the frame. They tallied seven doubles in the inning…
