Weekly Farm Recap 6/10-16: Ravelo rakes his way to St. Louis

Rangel Ravelo’s best offensive season yet has earned him his first major league call-up.

Welcome back to the weekly farm recap. We’ve seen the start of some of the short-season affiliates like the State College Spikes, and those will be included in these write-ups in the coming weeks when there’s a week’s worth of games under their belt.

You can read this week’s daily farm reports from Andrew St. John and Austin Ward at the previous links.

Rangel Ravelo could make MLB debut after Cardinals select contract

The Cardinals are set to add minor league infielder Rangel Ravelo to their big league roster, The Athletic’s Robert Murray reports (Twitter link).  Ravelo’s contract should be selected prior to the Cards’ game with the Marlins on Monday night.  Yairo Munoz is headed to the paternity list, which will create a spot for Ravelo on the Cards’ 25-man roster, though a 40-man spot will still need to be created. MLB.com doesn’t rank Ravelo as one of the Cardinals’ top 30 prospects,...

Cardinals Earn Your Dad’s Approval with 4-3 Victory

DeJong, Martinez, and Hudson push the Redbirds to the win.

The Cardinals defeated the Mets Sunday afternoon, 4-3, brightening Father’s Day grillouts everywhere Sunday afternoon. The victory makes the Cardinals 10-6 in their last 16 games, 3-1-1 in their last five series, and 1-0 this season when wearing what can best be described as acid-washed jean hats.

It didn’t take long for the Cardinals to score on Mets starting pitcher Jason Vargas. Paul DeJong walked in the first inning with one...

Game 71 of 162

The St. Louis Cardinals take on the New York Mets this father’s day afternoon at 12:10pm.

Yardbarker: St. Louis Cardinals

Watch: Shildt: 'We made them make a play' on final out

Mike Shildt credits a strong throw from Mets' second baseman Jeff McNeil as Jack Flaherty was thrown out to end the game on an attempt to score the game-tying run: "We made them make a play at the plate to end it."

Yardbarker: St. Louis Cardinals

Watch: Flaherty: 'I slipped coming around third' on game-ending play

Jack Flaherty says he stumbled around third base before Jeff McNeil's throw beat him at home for the game's final out: "I slipped a little bit coming around third... It's kind of frustrating."

Miles Mikolas, Average Pitcher :/

The Lizard King has been demoted to Lizard Prince so far this year.

I just completed a pretty major change in my life this week. I moved from New York to San Francisco (very cliche, I know) and changed jobs (or more precisely downgraded from working to mostly working). There are innumerable things that you could think of as the biggest stressor in my life right now: learning a new city, packing, moving, unpacking, the crippling uncertainty of going from a career I’ve had my whole life to...

FanPulse: Concerns are Growing in St. Louis

Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse, a survey of fans across MLB. Each week, we send 30 polls to plugged in fans from each team. Cardinals fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.

With just two wins in their last six games, concerns continue to mount among Cardinals fans. In the latest FanPulse survey, Cardinals fans gave a 23% confidence rating in the club. That is the lowest it has been this season and currently the second-lowest in the league. The Pirates were charted with a zero percent confidence...

What’s Wrong with Paul DeJong?

DeJong has been in a tailspin. What’s preventing more power like last night’s homerun?

When Paul DeJong awoke on May 7th, he was surely satisfied with the torrid beginning to his season. He was slashing .336/.405/.606, good for a 166 wRC+. His hitting heroics, baserunning, and defense had led to 2.4 fWAR, second best in baseball. Through that point, he was outperforming luminaries like Christian Yelich, Mike Trout, and Alex Bregman. Since May 7th, he’s slashing .181/.310/.305, a 72...

For Cardinals starter Miles Mikolas, what a difference a year makes

The St. Louis Cardinals signed free-agent right-hander Miles Mikolas to a two-year, $15.5M guarantee in what became one of the smartest moves of the 2017-18 offseason.  Hardly a bank-breaking commitment, it was somewhat of a gamble for St. Louis. After all, Mikolas was an unspectacular major leaguer with the Padres and Rangers from 2012-14 and then spent three years pitching in Japan.  Mikolas was dominant overseas, though, and carried that excellence into 2018 in St. Louis. During his...

Series Preview 6/13-16: Cardinals at Mets

The Cardinals took two of three in their series against the Marlins this week. Now, on the final stop of their 10-game trip, the Cardinals are in New York for four games with the Mets at Citi Field. St. Louis took two of three from the Mets when they visited Busch Stadium back in April.

Entering play on Thursday, the Cardinals are 33-33 and five games back of the Central-leading Brewers. The Mets are 33-34, trailing the Braves by 5 1?2 games in the East.

In Thursday’s series opener, Jacob...

Lukewarm in June: Cards in need of a shuffle

A .500 team in mid-June could benefit from some new Cards added to the deck.

I’m not a fan of the typical extremism that accompanies columns.

Opinion pieces in typical media settings are pretty polarizing. Plenty of hot takes. Capitalizing on the hot-button issues of the team’s fans.

It’s especially hard to avoid that style of writing in the blog space, where clubhouse access isn’t available and player interviews aren’t an option.

I feel like this season has evoked a lot of...

Holy cats!

We have been following along on the Blues postseason run for over the last two months and it finally happened. I do not have much more to say.

What Happens When Our Lives End

The epitaph read: Baseball 1991-2015—his birth year and the last year he played the game. Under it laid his life.

I sit in our first-base dugout preparing to play another no-name team in a no-name league wearing another no-name jersey in a stadium fittingly known as The Clink. The mid-west heat rises with the mid-day sun and our clubhouse manager limps out to the mound to throw batting practice in denim jeans, a full-sleeved western button-down shirt, dinner plate-sized belt buckle, black...
