Shelby Miller

Jaime Garcia departed yesterday’s NLDS game after just 2 innings and 51 pitches.  Though he appeared to labor through those 2 innings, his command and control didn’t appear all that bad, and his velocity seemed normal.  He just seemed ineffective in giving up an earned run, 2 hits, and 3 walks.  It was not until [...]

You could practically hear the groans echoing through Cardinals Nation when the MLB Network graphic popped on screen for the team’s first pick in Monday’s draft.

Miller, who made his 2012 Spring Training debut Wednesday, is sculpted like the ideal right-handed [...]

Prospect ranking season continues leading up to the start of Spring Training, and today’s ranking of the Cardinals’ organization comes from former (and hopefully again, soon) PH8 Podcast guest, Baseball Prospectus’ Kevin Goldstein. The full rankings are subscription only at BP, a subscription that is well worth it. Some player notes: KG ranks Shelby Miller, [...]

To put it mildly, nothing about this past week has gone as planned. The Winter Meetings turned red hot in a hurry and left every St. Louis fan with a No. 5-sized hole. Now the challenge of moving on without an icon is real, and the only positive comes in watching a new league trying [...]

It may be the most wonderful time of the year, but the next week could potentially change a lot in how St. Louis baseball business is done going forward. Any way you choose to view it, the Cardinals are stuck until they figure out who will be manning first base in April. As the Winter [...]
