Cardinals Coaches

Get ready for the link-fest folks. Shelby Miller The Cardinals’ front office has been saying for weeks they weren’t worried about getting a deal done.  The St. Louis scribes have said for some time that they expected it to get done.  There are tidbits floating around on Twitter today that many of these deals have [...]

Brett Wallace. Clayton Mortensen. Shane Peterson. Which one is this go-round’s Dan Haren? As one would expect, the Cardinals’ trade for Matt Holliday brought about much excitement, for there is a new big bat in the daily lineup.  It also brought consternation because of the seemingly exorbitant price. We can’t add much outside of the [...]

This subject was first broached on Twitter by Matthew Leach, the answer to which I was quickly able to find [...]

Saturday brought not only a much needed win for the St. Louis Cardinals, but also another bat for their sometimes slumping offense. Many Cardinal fans had been clamoring for weeks for Cards GM John Mozeliak to acquire the versatile Mark DeRosa from the Cleveland Indians, and the deal was made late Saturday night for reliever [...]

I had to laugh at the headline link on ESPN.com (that’s the Eastern Seaboard Promotion Network, for those of us in the Midwest) after Tuesday night’s Cardinals – Tigers game. The Cards exploded on offense, plating all eleven of their runs by the end of the sixth inning. Albert Pujols had a fine game by [...]

Earlier this week, Fox Sports Midwest studio anchor and co-host of the “Parris and Burwell” radio show Pat Parris posted to his blog on the 101 ESPN website, indicating he had the answer for the Cardinals’ offensive struggles. Please, Pat, do tell! Instant Help For Offense…Bat Pitcher 9th With a title like that, it seemed [...]
