Sounds like a pretty cool name for a band, right? Actually, with his appearance catching in the late innings of Sunday night’s game, Nick Stavinoha joined a short list of Cardinal players that have made a one-game cameo playing catcher (when catcher is not their natural position). Today’s roster move to put Jason LaRue on [...]
