Picture the scene. The Cardinals have a runner on 3rd Base with less than 2 outs. The batter hits a groundball on the infield. The runner immediately breaks for home, challenging the infielder to make the perfect play. He does. The throw home is good and the runner is out.
It's been a rough season for Dexter Fowler. Heading into the game on June 13th, Dexter's batting average sits at a dismal .172. With an equally miserable .196 BABIP, the man literally cannot buy a hit. He is one of 4 major contributors to the lineup that opened the season
Every winter the outcry is for the owners to open up the wallet and spend. Believe it or not, they have. It just hasn’t worked out very well. The most recent signings of Brett Cecil, Greg Holland and Dexter Fowler have not had the greatest of returns.

For the first time since the 100 win 2015 season, the Cardinals are going to play the Minnesota Twins. That last series ended up in a 4 game split, where we left in disappointment following a meltdown by our bullpen. Kevin Siegrist allowed a Joe Mauer homer to tie it

When Billy Hamilton smoked a line drive into the Great American Ballpark left field seats yesterday, I officially started to become concerned with the 2018 version of Tyler Lyons. After all, the switch hitting speedster Hamilton possesses a career .322 slugging percentage. He is known for his speed, not his
The Cardinals are going to play the Chicago Cubs for the first time since September 28th last year. That was the game where September callup Jen-Ho Tseng held the Cardinals scoreless for 3 innings in an extra innings affair (lost in the 11th), following an early exit from starter Kyle
Watching the St. Louis Cardinals offense strike out like crazy through the first two weeks of the season has been frustrating. I get it. What we have to remember, though, is that crazy things can happen in small sample sizes. Thirteen games is just not enough to look at any
There's is no need for me to rehash what everyone has already been told, or said themselves. Matt Carpenter can only hit when batting leadoff. That's the narrative. It's false.
The fact is, Carpenter has had a very good career, and has happened to spend 70% of that career (as well
