Cardinals Get Big Return From Jaime Garcia

It’s not the most comforting way to look at a loss, but besides the bat silencing from Mets starter Jacob deGrom or the latest bullpen collapse, the return of Jaime Garcia was a huge positive takeaway from today’s game.

Cardinals: Kolten Wong Is A Potent Leadoff Option

How tasty would it be if the St. Louis Cardinals’ leadoff hitter had a .350 plus on base percentage and a .460 plus slugging percentage and his name wasn’t Matt Carpenter? Say hello to Kolten Wong, the formerly self tortured young second baseman with a heavy stick who spent 2014 living down the terrible memory of a World Series pickoff.

Here’s A Radical Idea For The Cardinals Rotation

That loss. Please don’t blame that loss on anything other than bad hitting.

St. Louis Cardinals: Can Garcia stabilize the rotation?

The St. Louis Cardinals just wrapped up only their second losing series of the 2015 season, dropping two of three games to the Detroit Tigers. With a gassed bullpen and uninspiring performances from several important areas, the Cardinals appear to be much worse off than their 25-12 start would appear on paper: most notably, the lack of a permanent fifth starter in the wake of Adam...

Cardinals: Running With Bourjos is Right

Disclaimer: I am a Jon Jay guy and always have been.I’ve taken flack for loving Jay’s ability to hit for average, get on base and do what was needed for the Cards since he first arrived. Having said that, it’s a pleasant surprise to see Peter Bourjos finally get a chance to shine and play some center field. Bourjos is also getting some swings in the leadoff spot, a place he...
