Cardinals Cancel Meeting With Jon Lester

Scratch one competitor off the list in the pursuit of Jon Lester. The St. Louis Cardinals revealed today that they have cancelled their planned meeting with the free-agent lefty. Apparently, the price-tag on Lester was too high for the Redbirds. Now, Boston only has to contend with the Giants, Cubs, Braves—and (horror of horrors) The Evil Empire.

St. Louis Cardinals Roundtable: What’s your lineup?

For week 2 of the our roundtable discussions, I asked Cardinal Nation to form a lineup for Opening Day 2015. It appears the starting 8 is set as Jason Heyward is firmly cemented in right field. Mike Matheny has plenty to work with when it comes to filling out the lineup. He has several options for the top of the lineup and has several left-handed hitters to fit in the order. Here...

St. Louis Cardinals: Should a veteran starting pitcher be on John Mozeliak’s radar?

St. Louis Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak has already shown this offseason that he plans on being aggressive.  The only proof you need is that he traded a prized, 23-year old, cost controlled pitcher for an outfielder that is looking at heading for free agency in the near future with no guarantee that he will re-sign with the Cardinals. Surprisingly, even after the big trade...

St. Louis Cardinals Top Prospect Countdown: Prospects 1-5

We have finally reached the last 5 prospects in our top 50 prospects for 2015. This process has been incredibly difficult as there are so many talented players in the St. Louis Cardinals farm system. This group of 5 features two players with MLB experience, one who will likely get it in 2015, and two young, stud pitchers. 5. Randal Grichuk, 23 It is hard for me to believe that Grichuk...

The Free Agent Pitcher The Whole AL Central Wants

Free agent, Justin Masterson, is getting a lot of love from the American League Central this off-season as every team is interested in the 29 year old right-handed pitcher. The Chicago White Sox need to add a righty to the starting rotation and Masterson could be the perfect fit. In 2014, Masterson started out as the Opening Day starter for the Cleveland Indians and was awful, he...

St. Louis Cardinals Still Don’t Need A High-Priced Starting Pitcher After Shelby Miller Trade

The St. Louis Cardinals took a chunk out of their pitching depth with their first big move of the offseason Nov. 17 when they sent right-hander Shelby Miller to the Atlanta Braves as part of a four-player deal for outfielder Jason Heyward, but they should not be in a rush to sign a big-name free agent to fill that void. The Cardinals still have an abundance of pitching depth, and...

How did the Cardinals Fare with Kantrovitz as Top Scout?

As often happens, I start to respond to a message board post, but find that my reply ends up being so long and detailed that it ends up being its own blog entry. Such is the case here. On Monday, news that the Oakland A’s have re-hired St. Louis Cardinals Director of Scouting Dan Kantrovitz to become one of their two assistant general managers was divulged.

Fantasy Baseball: Impact of the Heyward-Miller trade

Jason Heyward When the Atlanta Braves and St. Louis Cardinals swapped Jason Heyward and Jordan Walden for Shelby Miller and Tyrell Jenkins, many people were shocked. It was only a few years ago that Heyward made his MLB debut, homering in his first at bat and making an All-Star appearance in his rookie campaign. Heyward seemed to be the building block of the Atlanta Braves, and potentially...

Mike Matheny gives up No. 22 to Jason Heyward

One question that was raised shortly after Jason Heyward was traded to the St. Louis Cardinals was whether or not he’d get to keep wearing No. 22 on his jersey. Manager Mike Matheny donned 22 for most of his career, including from 2000-2004 when he was with the Cardinals, and has worn it ever since he took over as manager [...]

Is Anna the Cardinals New Castro?

For each of the last two winters, the St. Louis Cardinals bestowed a 40-man roster spot on a free agent signee that led me to scratch my head as to why. In that regard, I see Dean Anna as the new Angel Castro. Let’s back up 11 months. Coming off a decent 2013 season at the Triple-A level for the Los Angeles Dodgers and a strong winter ball campaign in his native Dominican Republic...

St Louis Cardinals rumors: Jon Lester edition

Soon after the St Louis Cardinals dealt Shelby Miller to the Braves for Jason Heyward, the team was linked to free agent ace Jon Lester. Despite not being the most likely move of the offseason, there is still a chance the Cardinals could sneak up and snag Lester off the market, rounding out their rotation and gaining yet another ace. The Cardinals’ loss of Shelby Miller certainly...

Bill Mueller Hired As Cardinals Assistant Hitting Coach

The most recent memory many Cardinals fans have of Bill Mueller is his .429 batting average and 8 total bases against St. Louis in the 2004 World Series. 10 years later, he joins the team he help dismember as the assistant hitting coach serving under John Mabry. The former (2003) AL batting champ brings a plethora of bonafides to the job, after playing 11 years of Major League baseball...

Are we as deep in pitching as every one says we are? My answer to both of those questions is yes. The way in which I will mention these prospects will be in no particular order. By prospect...
