Carlos Martinez’s home runs aren’t a concern

Carlos Martinez just finished his second start of the year moments ago. While I’m watching in the seventh, I’m hoping that the Cardinals hold on this time and he picks up his first win of the season. So far, Martinez has pitched exceedingly well, giving up 3 runs, 7 hits, and 5 walks while striking out 13 over 13 innings. He’s handled lefties reasonably well, and gone six innings...

His Cardinals are off to a solid start as well with a 6-3 record after notching a 6-11 win against the Cincinnati Reds. He did his part to help with that win with a pair of hits, and a couple of runs.One came on a pretty acrobatic play when Reds catcher Brayan...

Springfield Cardinals Recap: Series #2 San Antonio Missions

Sometimes, we have to look at even small strides as progress.   As the Cardinals began their 2015 campaign winless, they did finally notch one in the win column and have improved their overall play.  The bad news is that the scoreboard still went the opponents’ way in the other two games of the series.The Cardinals took Game 1 against the Missions while collecting only 3 hits...

Cardinals take home-opening series from Brewers

The Cardinals shutout the Brewers, 4-0, on Thursday behind more fantastic starting pitching, this time from John Lackey. They moved to 5-3 on the season with two series wins and a split over three divisional opponents. Lackey shut down the Brewers offense over seven strong innings, allowing five hits and a walk with eight strikeouts. Especially promising is the fact that Lackey was...

Will The Cardinals Stick With Trevor Rosenthal?

Sometimes, it’s best to point out that the first month of the season is the hardest for a sports writer. Stats come in small sample sizes and a game or two can flip a story on a dime. For example, I wrote about Trevor Rosenthal pitching leaner and meaner the other day, and then he produced high blood pressures across the Midwest with his last two outings. After striking out five...

Bryan Price is whining about a dirty Jason Heyward slide that wasn’t dirty

We’re six games into the 2015 season, and Bryan Price is already whining. The Cincinnati Reds manager’s latest gripe? A slide into third base by Cardinals outfielder Jason Heyward in the fifth inning of Sunday’s 7-5, 11 inning Cardinals win. Here’s the relevant quote, via the St Louis Post-Dispatch. “Something happened at third base with Heyward. I thought that was a bad...

Cardinals Play A Personality Series Against Cincinnati

Ask a Cardinals fan what they thought about this past weekend’s series against the Cincinnatti Reds and you’re going to find out about their personality real quick. If they start off with ‘2 of 3 in a series on the road is always a good thing’ or ‘damn did Wacha and Martinez look good’ then you’re probably dealing with a positive person. You more negative friends might...

Yadier Molina Is So Tiny I Thought He Was The Bat Boy

You guys – I’m not making this up. I was at the game Sunday night and I thought the bat boy was walking up to the plate before I realized that it was Yadier Molina. Yes.

Is Matt Holliday baseball's most underrated star?

A player can become a poster child of sorts for his club’s offense. Edwin Encarnacion notwithstanding, I think of Jose Bautista and his pull power when I think of the Blue Jays. Mark Trumbo’s free-swinging ways embody the Diamondbacks, at least for me. Ben Zobrist hasn’t even played a game for the A’s yet, and […]
