    Good news Sunday out of Cardinals camp, via MLB.com beat reporter Jenifer Langosch … JUPITER, Fla. — After ending Tuesday’s live batting practice early due to tightness in his right groin, Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal returned to the mound on Sunday and threw without issue during a 25-pitch bullpen session.

  5. 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…

  6. Jason Motte hoping to be ready for game action in March

    Jan 3, 2014, 10:49 AM EDT

    Jason Motte,Yadier Molina

    Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post Dispatch has a lengthy article updating the status of Jason Motte, who’s recovering from Tommy John elbow surgery last May. In his absence Trevor Rosenthal has taken over as the Cardinals’ closer after Motte saved a league-leading 42 games in 2012, so whenever he does return it’ll be…

  7. Cardinals prepared to trade young starting pitching this winter for a shortstop upgrade

    Nov 10, 2013, 5:39 PM EDT

    john mozeliak getty

    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…

  8. Dan Quisenberry for the Hall of Fame

    Dan Quisenberry

    OK, so you have probably heard — there are 12 finalists on what the Baseball Hall of Fame is calling the Expansion Era Ballot. These are players, managers and executives who contributed during what the Hall (naturally) calls the Expansion Era — from 1973 to the present. Only problem is, that’s not really the Expansion Era.…

  9. Cardinals will keep Trevor Rosenthal in the bullpen

    Nov 4, 2013, 6:28 PM EDT

    Trevor Rosenthal

    Carlos Martinez will get a chance to compete for a spot in the Cardinals’ rotation next spring, but fellow hard-throwing young right-hander Trevor Rosenthal will remain in the bullpen. Mike Matheny announced that Rosenthal will enter 2014 as the Cardinals’ closer after thriving in that role down the stretch and into the playoff this year.…

  10. Cardinals will be back … and often

    Oct 31, 2013, 12:24 AM EDT

    michael wacha fenway getty

    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…

  11. The night John Farrell embraced chaos

    Oct 27, 2013, 12:40 AM EDT

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

    ST. LOUIS — There’s a cliche about managers putting their players in the best position to succeed. A corollary to that is having the best players in the right position, at the right time. Do those things as often as possible and you’re more likely than not to win, right? Well, sometimes. The Red Sox tested…

  12. Cardinals win Game 3 of the World Series on an obstruction call

    Oct 27, 2013, 12:13 AM EDT

    Jim Joyce

    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…

  13. What do Brandon Workman and Graeme Lloyd have in common?

    Oct 26, 2013, 11:56 PM EDT

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

    Neither is in my kitchen. I kid. ESPN’s Mark Simon posted this fascinating bit of Trivia on Twitter a few minutes ago, after Red Sox reliever Brandon Workman had stepped into the batter’s box in the ninth inning of a tie game against Trevor Rosenthal. Workman, of course, struck out looking. Last pitcher to bat…

  14. The back-and-forth continues, Red Sox knot the game at 4-4 in the eighth

    Oct 26, 2013, 11:35 PM EDT

    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…

  15. The Cardinals’ pitchers throw so hard they broke Yadier Molina’s mitt

    Oct 25, 2013, 11:05 PM EDT

    yadier molina getty

    Cardinals pitching staffs of the past, particularly under former pitching coach Dave Duncan, were famous for the prodigious rate at which they generated ground balls. The 2013 staff, however, will be known for young arm after young arm hitting the upper 90′s and even the 100′s on the radar gun. When closer Trevor Rosenthal shut…

  16. Carlos Martinez, Trevor Rosenthal own the late innings for Cardinals

    Oct 25, 2013, 12:02 AM EDT

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

    Even as Michael Wacha was through five scoreless, one thing seemed pretty clear: his pitch count up to 90, the sixth would be his final inning. That sixth inning didn’t go as planned, but the seventh through ninth innings sure did. The Cardinals rallied from 2-1 down beat the Red Sox 4-2 in Game 2,…

  17. Cardinals take Game 2 to even up World Series against Red Sox

    Oct 24, 2013, 11:15 PM EDT

    Jay Carpenter Getty

    The World Series will head back to St. Louis all evened up. After falling in Game 1 of the World Series last night, the Cardinals bounced back tonight with a 4-2 victory over the Red Sox in Game 2. The Cardinals got on the board first with an RBI ground out from Yadier Molina in…

  18. Do the Red Sox or the Cardinals have the World Series pitching edge?

    Oct 21, 2013, 2:10 PM EDT

    Adam Wainwright

    This postseason has been dominated by pitching, so who has the arms advantage in the World Series? During the regular season the Red Sox ranked sixth among AL teams in runs allowed and the Cardinals ranked fifth among NL teams in runs allowed, but overall totals can be misleading when it comes to evaluating the…

  19. The Cardinals clinch their ticket to the World Series with Game 6 victory over the Dodgers

    Oct 18, 2013, 11:38 PM EDT

    NLCS - Los Angeles Dodgers v St Louis Cardinals

    The Cardinals provided starter Michael Wacha with a big ol’ pile of runs but he sure didn’t need it. The 22-year-old right-hander continued to show poise and dominance with seven shutout innings, out-dueling presumptive NL Cy Young award winner Clayton Kershaw in the process. Wacha finished with a line that read: 7 IP, 0 R,…

  20. Cardinals beat Dodgers in Game 4, lead NLCS 3-1

    Oct 15, 2013, 11:32 PM EDT

    holliday getty

    St. Louis is one win away from the World Series. Matt Holliday slugged a two-run bomb in the top of the third inning and Shane Robinson smacked a pinch-hit solo shot in the top of the seventh inning as the Cardinals defeated the Dodgers 4-2 in Game 4 of the NLCS on Tuesday evening in…

  21. Cardinals take a 2-0 lead in NLCS with 1-0 shutout of Dodgers

    Oct 12, 2013, 6:52 PM EDT

    NLCS - Los Angeles Dodgers v St Louis Cardinals - Game Two

    Cardinals starter Michael Wacha turned in a gem, needing only one run of support to help pitch his team past the Dodgers. Wacha shut out the Dodgers over six and two-thirds innings, allowing just five hits and a walk while striking out eight. Jon Jay contributed the game’s only run with a fifth-inning sacrifice fly…

  22. Looking ahead to NLCS Game 2: Dodgers-Cardinals

    Oct 12, 2013, 10:43 AM EDT

    Michael Wacha Getty

    The Dodgers and Cardinals will have little time to recover from their extra-inning marathon last night, as the two teams will meet in Game 2 of the NLCS this afternoon at Busch Stadium in St. Louis. The game will start at 4 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on TBS. Here’s a quick look at…

  23. Last night was not Don Mattingly’s finest hour

    Oct 12, 2013, 8:59 AM EDT

    Don Mattingly AP

    Carlos Beltran delivered the walkoff RBI single in the 13th inning last night to lead the Cardinals to a 3-2 victory over the Dodgers in Game 1 of the NLCS, but a number of questionable decisions from Don Mattingly set the events in motion. The first occurred in the top of the eighth inning after…

  24. Post-season legend Carlos Beltran makes a game-saving throw to home plate to preserve tie

    Oct 12, 2013, 12:13 AM EDT

    Carlos Beltran

    The Dodgers were threatening to take the lead in the top of the tenth inning against Cardinals reliever Trevor Rosenthal, in for his second inning of work in Game 1 of the NLCS. After Carl Crawford flied out, Mark Ellis smoked a line drive to right-center, which center fielder Jon Jay read very poorly. He…

  25. Game 1 of NLCS headed into extra innings

    Oct 11, 2013, 11:59 PM EDT

    NLCS - Los Angeles Dodgers v St Louis Cardinals - Game One

    Game 1 of the NLCS is already giving you the drama you crave. Both the Cardinals and Dodgers have put up zeroes outside of Juan Uribe‘s two-run single in the top of the third and Carlos Beltran‘s game-tying, two-run double in the bottom of the third. Zack Greinke put together an outstanding start, holding the…
