As much as I enjoy the lead-up to the MLB Rule 4 Draft, the honest truth is way too much misinformation comes out in the week before Ryan Franklin represents the Cardinals. It appears picking 19th serves St. Louis well in the first round, however,  with the 2013 edition looking to score the third potential [...]

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 [...]

The Cardinals’ starting pitching rotation is on this week’s cover of Sports Illustrated. Well, what WAS the Cardinals’ starting pitching rotation. Two-fifths of that photo are now on the disabled list. One for the season (Jaime Garcia) and one indefinitely or until the medical staff runs out of elbow injections (Jake Westbrook).

Shelby Miller: 6.2 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 8 K Adam Wainwright: 8.1 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 9 K Three total innings of relief in two games. This is an opportunity for the much-maligned Cardinals bullpen and their manager to reboot. Reset expectations. Survive and advance [...]

A new autograph format followed the festivities, and both the current and former players put on a good show.

Sometime in mid-August (ok, August 12 to be exact – it’s right there on the Tweeter box) Cardinal fan Will Leitch began a dialogue “with” the Cardinals. Er, maybe AT the Cardinals is more appropriate. The first installment was posted Wednesday and the completion of the regular season was posted yesterday. With Will’s permission, and [...]

Based on what we saw in 2012, feigned knowledge of the minor league system, and some tarot cards someone left in the driveway, I shall attempt to predict the future.  Barring an unexpected retirement or alien abduction, the 2013 Cardinals have roughly $89.5M guaranteed in salary to 9 players.  Add up some guesstimates for arbitration-eligible [...]
