After winning the NL Central and making the NLCS in 2014, the St. Louis Cardinals look to be in a similar position for 2015. The Redbirds will open the season as favorites to win the NL Central once again by many, and their roster projects to be one of the best in the National League once again.

St. Louis Cardinals: 5 reasons Matt Carpenter is worth every dime

When you put yourself out there as a “blogger” or “writer” or whatever you want to call what I do (blabbing about the St. Louis Cardinals), you do your best to respect others as they put themselves out there and take the risk of criticism from the keyboard gangsters who want to just rip apart anything they read. But when something is written that needs to be called out, like...

On the field, he spanned the end of Stan Musial’s career with the World Champions of 1964 and 1967, the latter led by Red Schoendienst...

Player Profile #103: Matt Holliday | OF | STL

Matt Holiday’s career can be divided into two pieces. The first is as a member of the Colorado Rockies, and the second is as a St. Louis Cardinal (let’s just ignore those 93 games with Oakland). During that first portion of his career, playing half his games in Coors, he was putting up incredible numbers virtually year-in and year-out. He was a fantasy stud. Since, joining the...

Jim Edmonds to Join Cast of The Real Housewives?

Confession time. I was fine with John Rocker competing on “Survivor: San Juan del Sur – Blood vs. Water” this past September. I actually, kinda wanted to see the onetime Atlanta Braves closer stick around longer than he did. I’m even okay with Johnny Damon taking his turn vying for Donald’s Trump’s attention on “Celebrity Apprentice”.  Sure, he hasn’t done much...

Xavier Scruggs Offers Internal Solution to Power Outage for St. Louis Cardinals

The St. Louis Cardinals have been successful by almost any standard. The team has consistently found itself in the postseason. They have managed to develop talent at most key positions on the field.

St Louis Cardinals: will the offense improve?

The Cardinals offense saw a meteoric drop in 2014 after a record-setting 2013 numbers failed to carry over.

Cardinals Set to Honor Fallen Teammate

Both the NBA and NFL have rules in place and players can be subjected to fines should they decide willy-nilly to change their uniform number. Now, I’m not sure if such a penalty is in place in Major League Baseball, but I’m pretty sure Carlos Martinez would pay it. You see, the St. Louis Cardinals pitcher recently announced he would be switching from number 44 to 18 to honor...
