We showed up on a couple other outposts in the blogosphere lately… MVN Outsider carried our Cardinals Trade Deadline Preview just a few hours before the big Matt Holliday trade. One of my favorite parts of that post? As protective as Cardinals management has been of their minor-league system, I can’t see them parting with [...]

The Matt Holliday to St. Louis trade rumors got us thinking… Just how large of a haul has Billy Beane raked in via Mark Mulder’s balky shoulder?  The answer may surprise you, and make you rethink whether the Cards should be party to increasing the haul. As you’ll find below, the (now) ill-fated Mulder deal [...]

If you needed any more evidence to back up our prior assertion that Chris Duncan is one of the more polarizing players of recent Cardinal history, you need only read the wide variety and massive number of St Louis mainstream media pieces, blog posts, and message board threads on the Duncan-Julio Lugo trade. For every [...]

[Ed. note - I know it's July.  I know I'm about four-ish weeks late with this post.  Sue me.  Better late than never, right?] I was lucky growing up where I did, about a half-hour east of St Louis – “on the Illinois side.” I was able to attend Cardinal games fairly regularly, thanks to [...]

I learned a new baseball term (or maybe just a local one) on Thursday night, when Derrick Goold Twittered back at yours truly explaining that Adam Wainwright’s getting out of another bases loaded situation on Tuesday night in Milwaukee was known as a ‘Houdini’.  (Get it?  Escape?  Good.) Well, of course, the Play Index at [...]

Joe Thurston has cost the Cardinals several outs on the bases (and thus himself as a baserunner and potential run, obviously) this season.  And when I say several, I mean a glaring amount, in comparison. This subject was first broached on Twitter by Matthew Leach, the answer to which I was quickly able to find [...]

More on the DeRosa trade… Speculation is already running rampant on the name of the remaining player the Cardinals will send to the Cleveland Indians by September 1st to complete the Mark DeRosa trade. We’ll know the answer to that question soon enough. But what about the other potential player to be named later in [...]

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 [...]

Mike talked with the former Cardinal closer about his career, his take on baseball today, and about the Bank of America MLB promotion that is going on in advance of [...]
