Matt Carpenter is asked to do too much

After an already tumultuous 2017, the Cardinals are putting more on his plate On Tuesday of last week, we learned from Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post Dispatch that the Cardinals were going to be “a little more open-minded” on how they think about Matt Carpenter’s position. As John Mozeliak added, “A lot is going to depend on how things evolve this offseason.” In 2012, Carpenter burst onto the scene playing over 200 innings at both first and third base. He also logged over...

This Cardinals Fan Thankful For A Free iPhone X

Happy Thanksgiving! I don’t know how I came across this video, but I did. As of this post it has 3.7M views, so I guess I’m not the only one. Anyway… It’s just a pleasant four plus minutes of a dude giving away iPhone X’s to strangers. One of which is wearing a Cardinals hat, so I assume he’s a Cardinals fan. I promise you there’s no trick here. Just some people getting a pretty awesome surprise. Yes, this was a view grab by the uploader. And, sure, there could have been some...

My favorite Cardinals game of 2017

Here’s hoping that your Thanksgiving is everything you want it to be. My favorite St. Louis Cardinals game of 2017 was Game 6 of the 2011 World Series. I’ll explain. In the early 2000s, my aunt Beth began dating a man named Rich Logan. I met Rich when he was about fifty years old and I was in middle school. New people had come around my family over the years, but Rich was the first example I can remember of meeting an adult who treated me immediately as, for all intents and purposes, an...

Giving Thanks, Cardinals Style

There’s been a lot going on so far this offseason.  We continue to focus on Giancarlo Stanton, new coaches have arrived, and we wait for some sort of activity.  However, today is a day to pause, reflect, and give thanks for all that we have individually and as part of various groups. It’s tradition around this part of the Internet to take a look at Thanksgiving and ... [Read more]

Cards consistent in pitching in for community

The achievements and impact of the Cardinals went well beyond the diamond in 2017, as the organization once again rallied to support numerous charity organizations and community projects through hands-on work and monetary donations.

Cardinals 40-Man Roster reaches 39 - A Hunt and Peck

Gotta leave room for Giancarlo Stanton, obviously. The deadline for MLB clubs to add players to their respective 40-man rosters in order to protect them from the Rule 5 Draft was Monday night. With that in mind, the Cardinals have purchased the contracts of: Austin Gomber (LHP, ranked fifteenth in the organization by MLB.com and Eric Longenhagen of Fangraphs )Derian Gonzalez (RHP, twenty-third by Fangraphs)Tyler O’Neill (Outfielder, fourth by MLB.com, seventh by Fangraphs)Oscar Mercado...

Mark Appel is the kind of pitcher the Cardinals should take a flyer on

The former #1 overall pick was waived by the Phillies. Earlier this week, as the Phillies added minor leaguers to their 40-man roster to protect them from the Rule 5 draft, one name they left off was former #1 overall pick Mark Appel. For my money, he's exactly the kind of player the Cardinals should be looking to add as a potential bullpen arm. Quick note: I'm cueing this up Tuesday morning. So what if Appel is traded or otherwise claimed before this runs on Wednesday? This post still runs....

And Now We Play The Waiting Game

The whole of Cardinal Nation — and baseball as a whole — waits with bated breath for something to happen. Probably going to unbate that breath, everybody. We could be here awhile.

It’s one day before Thanksgiving, and there has still been no movement on the Stanton front. Or any other front, for that matter; as of this moment, the Cardinals have made zero moves this offseason. No signings. No trades. No ill-advised anythings. No stealth anythings. Just a whole lot of nothing....
