Mitchell Boggs

The news is a bit old now, but the Cardinals have given former Chicago Cub and Baltimore Oriole Rich Hill a minor-league contract that carries a non-roster invitation to their big-league training camp. The general consensus is that Hill will compete with other internal options (Kyle McClellan, Jaime Garcia, Mitchell Boggs, P.J. Walters, maybe others) [...]

Once again the United Cardinal Bloggers are undertaking our fall Roundtable discussions via e-mail. Josh will be moderating a discussion on a question of his own in a few days, so keep an eye out for that. My question to the group has already made the rounds, and there were some interesting (and some predictable) [...]

In another game that many would argue the 2008 Cardinals didn’t have a chance in, the 2009 Redbirds emerge victorious to win another series against the Dodgers, their fifth win this season in the seventh and final regular season matchup with the NL West leaders. Notes Adam Wainwright was brilliant early, then seemed as if [...]

Ok, fine.  I give. I’ve been through the splits. I have convinced myself that John Smoltz doesn’t have the bullets left to be a starting pitcher. I even made a pros and cons list! Word has been filtering through Twitter via Joe Strauss: Barring waiver claim, Smoltz to Cardinals Wednesday: STL Post-Dispatch #stlcards (Strauss also [...]

Kyle Lohse left tonight’s game with further “discomfort” in his pitching elbow, likely (hopefully) stemming from the pitch that hit him in that right elbow a week-and-a-half or so back. Lohse’s lingering injury means Joel Pineiro is going to be counted on to make his next start as he claims he can.  Brad Thompson will [...]

Nice of the Cardinals to decide to take a game from Pittsburgh while they were in town.  I was beginning to think that the Pirates would wind up in first place in the division by the time the Cards escaped… Mitchell Boggs did “just well enough” in his short outing again to put the Cardinals [...]

Cardinal fans, pray for good results from the MRI done on Kyle Lohse’s right knee yesterday.  What looked like an innocent tweak of the ankle and a stubborn starter trying to finish five and get the win quickly turned into another waiting and wishing game for Cardinal fans. Where do they go if Lohse winds [...]

What a two game stretch for the Cardinals, eh? After flipping the switch on the typical bullpen story Tuesday night, the Cards were pretty dominant from wire-to-wire last night. Joel Pineiro was economical, efficient, and overall outstanding.  He gave the bullpen some rest after lots of work Tuesday night, not to mention being short two [...]
