St. Louis Cardinals: Why Brandon Moss deserves to stay past 2016

When you think of the reason the St. Louis Cardinals are in playoff contention, who comes to your mind? Matt Carpenter? Yadier Molina? Carlos Martinez? How about Brandon Moss?

Then 2011 happened, and the feeling of emptiness was overwhelming...

Projecting Cardinals Call-Up Alex Reyes

The St. Louis Cardinals recalled top prospect Alex Reyes yesterday and, a few hours later, the hard-throwing right-hander recorded his major-league debut, striking out one in a clean inning of relief work (box). The book on Reyes is that his stuff is off the charts, but his control and command leave something to be desired. His numbers paint this picture vividly. His top-notch...

Checking in on Adam Wainwright’s Curveball

I have a favorite pitch in the majors. As someone who hopes to illuminate interesting aspects of the game of baseball, I wish I could say my favorite pitch was an obscure off-the-board pick that you had never previously considered – a pitch by an obscure reliever or an up-and-coming rookie, perhaps — but in reality, my favorite is classic and unoriginal. The pitch that makes...
