John Mozeliak

With Tuesday night’s impressive performance – again – Tyler Lyons (who is this guy, really?) has continued the success of Cardinal rookie starting pitchers in 2013. Leading all of baseball in 2013 with nine wins from rookie starting pitchers, the Cardinals have relied on one pitcher they hoped would have this success, Shelby Miller, and [...]

For the third straight season, the United Cardinal Bloggers were guests in St. Louis and in my opinion, the team may even invite us back! It is the least we can do since the win streak was snapped by Pittsburgh. Christi and I made the trip up Saturday to attend the dinner and brought with [...]

“…very unlikely that he will pitch in 2013.” – John Mozeliak, Cardinals GM (about 20 minutes ago) “Well, FU*%!” -Me, just now If it looks like a duck and sounds like a duck, then it’s probably forced retirement in the near future.  Grrr.

It only seems fair to start off with a big “Thank You” to the St. Louis Cardinals organization for taking the time and making the effort to draw the United Cardinal Bloggers out of basements long enough to attend one of those fancy events where everyone wears pants.  In all seriousness, Ron Watermon, Lindsey Weber, [...]

That’s right.  We’re breaking out the “fancy” sweatpants for a shindig that starts this coming Saturday, and no expense shall be spared in the process (and by that I mean I’m getting my sweatpants dry-cleaned for the occasion).  The Cardinals have plans to host the United Cardinal Bloggers at Busch Stadium.  Shocking, but the organization [...]

You’ve been given control of the decision-making process for the Cardinals just this once.  After you have bounced around in John Mozeliak’s office and called in Mike Matheny for a discussion about banning the bunt, you have to call Scott Boras and invite him in for a chat.  Would you rather extend Kyle Lohse’s stay [...]

The Cardinals just traded Zach Cox for Edward Mujica which naturally produced a “They did what to whom for how many cows?” response.  Obviously, this was not the megadeal many in Cardinal Nation were looking for, but it certainly has potential to be significantly better than nothing.  For the record, Cox was not exactly tearing [...]

For the first time all season, the defending World Champs may have finally showed their hand leading up to the dog days ahead. No one truly knows which direction the Cardinals will turn but if you can read between the rumors, a picture paints itself with only a couple shopping days left. How pretty the [...]

The Cardinals’ release of veteran non-roster invitees Alex Cora and Koyie Hill on Sunday wasn’t the type of transaction that jumps off the computer screen at you, but it was another signal of how the organization has changed in recent years. Five years ago, and perhaps even more recently, Cora and/or Hill probably would have [...]

In player payroll alone, the 2011 St. Louis Cardinals cost somewhere around $126.3M, and you may be hard-pressed to find anybody who thinks that the Cardinals failed to get a decent return on that investment.  The publicity that accompanies a playoff run alone is probably worth millions in advertising and marketing dollars.  Win it all [...]
