Anthony Reyes

Joe Kelly and Trevor Rosenthal made their postseason debuts on Monday, each successfully preventing the Nationals from scoring a run in their respective innings pitched. With the addition of Kelly and Rosenthal to the roll, the Cardinals have employed sixteen rookie pitchers in the postseason since 2000.  With one glaring exception (Mike Matthews in 2001), [...]

[Ed. note - I've revised the post to re-order all of the charts, ranked by the column that is the "pertinent information".  I'm not sure why I didn't do that in the first place, but it was late when I originally posted, so forgive me.  Hopefully this makes the information even clearer.  Thanks for reading.] [...]

Rumors persist among Cardinal fans and scribes that Kyle McClellan is the logical fifth starter if Chris Carpenter can’t go because of persistent injury issues. I’ve gone on record here more than once as being opposed to this idea, and I haven’t changed my tune. As McClellan labored down the stretch, I wrote Save McClellan [...]

The new Danny Haren?

Remember the fear most Cardinal fans had (at least I did) when we shipped off an underperforming “once-prospect” for a live bullpen arm at the deadline? Don’t look now, but Anthony Reyes has posted a 2.01 ERA in five starts for the Cleveland Indians. From Jayson Stark at ESPN.com: Ask for a Reyes: Speaking of [...]

I’m sure a lot of you have seen this list before, but I just saw it yesterday for the first time, so I’m going to force it upon you again. Now, obviously Sabermetrics is something not every baseball fan necessarily follows nor understands, but nevertheless, some of the basics ring true for basic baseball knowledge.  [...]

Note:  Preprogrammed thread written prior to Friday night’s game – so this does not take into account any further bullpen implosions. Assume no trades are made – make any assumptions you like with players already in the organization.  Set your ideal pitching staff for the rest of the season. Mine is like this: SP Chris [...]

With the trade deadline fast approaching, and every post I write seemingly spouting off about “why can’t we trade this minor-leaguer for an All-Star?”, I thought it appropriate to get some information from a better source.  Erik from Future Redbirds was gracious enough to take the time to answer some (admittedly) off-the-cuff questions about the [...]

Now, before everyone attacks me about this being a rebuilding year and the Cards shouldn’t be giving up propects for rentals, don’t sell the farm, they’re in this position because Walt Jocketty mortgaged the future for now, etc., please listen. It doesn’t have to be a big move.  I’m not talking about shipping out Colby [...]

If nothing else, some of these Cardinal rookies are really piling up frequent flier mileage shuttling back and forth between Memphis and St Louis. A cursory glance of the Cards’ transactions this season shows the following trips: Kelvin Jimenez has been optioned and recalled three times.  His fourth trip to Memphis this year is just [...]

Before I get too far in, I will preface this post by saying these things: I am not a huge Chris Duncan fan.  I think he is a minus on defense (in the outfield – he doesn’t get enough innings at 1B to make that a reason why he’s on the club).  I can’t stand [...]
