Problems for Mike Leake and the St. Louis Cardinals

Early on in 2016, St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Mike Leake (#8) has not been as impressive as many fans would have hoped.  With a career ERA under 3.90 heading into this season, Leake has seen his ERA jump to 5.83 in his first five starts for the Cardinals.  The 28 year old is also 0-3 in those five starts, and the Cardinals are 1-4 in games he’s started. Why has Leake...

St. Louis Professional Sports Are Getting Weird In ’16

I don’t know, either. A night after ripping off 10 runs like it was batting practice, the Cardinals come back on Tuesday night and can barely scratch out 3 hits against the Phillies… let alone a single run. As we’re griping about the starting pitching as the reason the Cardinals can’t win games consistently in 2016, Mike Wacha goes out and twirls a gem you’d take 10 out...

Yadier Molina reinventing himself at the plate

While Aledmys Diaz and Jeremy Hazelbaker got most of the attention in the season’s first month, perhaps the biggest surprise on the St. Louis Cardinals comes from the team’s longest-tenured player. Yadier Molina heads into play Tuesday with a stellar .333 batting average and .412 on base percentage. Diaz and Hazelbaker were complete unknowns, so while their success is surprising...

WATCH: Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright hits an upper-deck blast

One cool thing about the National League if you’re a pitcher, is that you get the opportunity to bat and try to make up for runs you allowed on the mound (Note: I still think we should just have the DH in the NL, but that’s a topic for another day). St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright had allowed three earned runs on Monday night, and came to bat with his team trailing...

St. Louis Cardinals: April Report Card

One month into the 162-game grind that is the MLB season is hardly a long enough amount of time to make judgements about a team or a player for the rest of the year. However, a month of play does give fans a good idea of certain trends. For the St. Louis Cardinals, it is tough to pick things out, while some developing trends are certainly easier to spot. For example, Aledmys Diaz...

First Look: John Goodman’s Cardinals Bobble Will Be Walter Sobchak!

Mike Matheny’s endless lineup combinations not helping Cardinals

For all the weird stories involving Cardinals players (Jeremy Hazelbaker, Aledmys Diaz) early this season, perhaps the weirdest thing of all about the 2016 Cardinals is that manager Mike Matheny can’t stick to a lineup to save his life. The manager, perhaps best known for stubbornly sticking to a game plan well after it’s obvious the plan’s not working, is doing the exact...

Minor League Spotlight: Early Returns on Bader and Dejong

Checking in on two of the Cardinals' more intriguing hitting prospects. In last year's Rule IV draft (i.e. the amateur draft, first-year player draft, or just The Draft, whatever you prefer to call it), the Cardinals seemingly made it a priority to pick up some bats. It was a slightly odd approach to a very weak draft, which seemed especially thin on hitting, but looking at the...

St. Louis Cardinals: Meet Aledmys Diaz

Say hello to Aledmys Diaz, the next great player out of the farm system of the St. Louis Cardinals. Through 19 games, Diaz batted a scorching and league-leading .468, which would rank as the second-highest all-time in the month of April if he keeps it up. The shortstop stumbled a bit last night in a 3-0 loss against the Arizona Diamondbacks, going 0-3. Now, in 20 games, he is only...

Cardinals Carlos Martinez — Calls BS on STD Lawsuit

Who will carry the St. Louis Cardinals’ offense?

Through the first 19 games of his MLB career, St. Louis Cardinals’ outfielder Jeremy Hazelbaker (#41) has been a pleasant surprise.  Although, pleasant doesn’t quite do the justice that Hazelbaker’s early statistics seem to deserve.  The 28 year old rookie is batting .308 with five homeruns and 13 RBIs. What has not been impressive for Hazelbaker, however, is his patience...
