Current Cardinals

Cardinals fans, even those on the realistic side, can’t help but hope – or perhaps even expect – that former first-round pick Shelby Miller will graduate to the majors by next April and become the next great St. Louis pitcher. Miller, who made his 2012 Spring Training debut Wednesday, is sculpted like the ideal right-handed [...]

  The scuttlebutt is that the Cardinals and Yadier Molina are set to seal the deal on a 5 yr / $75M contract extension that should keep YadiMo in St. Louis for most of the remainder of his career.  The question that seems to be on an awful lot of minds now is “Did the [...]

Didn’t we just finish one of these epic United Cardinal Bloggers roundtable projects?  That pesky World Series has just compressed this off-season completely, huh? With all of the other great discussions going on, I decided to ask a bit about the team’s long-held belief in a “Cardinal Way.” Ask Google about “Cardinal Way” and you’ll [...]

Reading a couple of posts over at STLCardinalBaseball this weekend led me into a bit of a debate with Ray over whether the Cardinals routinely pay market value for their players or not.  Spurred on by the ongoing discussions about what market value may look like for one Yadier Molina, Ray took a look at [...]
