Michael Wacha continues to impress as Cardinals pull away from Nationals 4-1

It was a great pitcher’s duel on paper, and the match up between Michael Wacha and Max Scherzer lived up to the hype in the series finale between the Cardinals and Nationals on Thursday afternoon in Washington D.C.Matt Carpenter would lead off the game with a double, per usual. He then came around to score on a wild pitch as the Cardinals took a 1-0 lead in the Top of the 1st....

Michael Wacha Excels In First Start

Saturday afternoon, Michael Wacha started his first regular season game since giving up the homerun that ended the Cardinals postseason. At the time, some argued that Wacha was rushed back, and not fully recovered from the stress reaction that had kept him out about three months. So today, all eyes were on the young right-hander, and he put all doubts to rest. Wacha started shaky...

St. Louis Cardinals Recap: Wacha Shuts Down Nationals

Good afternoon from The Ark,The Cards beat the Washington Nationals 1-0 this afternoon on their home field, and while it was a spring training contest that practically vanishes as the box scoreboard is cleared off in the outfield stands, there were reasons to take stock in it. For one, the season is getting closer so the rosters are being trimmed and positioned to head north. The...

Buffa’s Bullets: Michael Wacha Stays Strong

Appreciating spring training is about recognizing the little things. A pitcher perfecting a slider or a hitter cranking a long ball off a right handed pitcher. It’s not about wins, losses or baseball card stats. This is where the arm chair managers can relax and just watch the games.

Michael Wacha Passes First Test of Spring

Why The St. Louis Cardinals need Cole Hamels

As the St. Louis Cardinals gear up for yet another run at the World Series, it seems as though they are missing one critical piece to compete with other National League powerhouses: A legitimate number two option. The Los Angeles Dodgers have Zach Greinke, The San Francisco Giants have Matt Cain, and the Washington Nationals have an entire rotation of number one or two starters....

Michael Wacha Is Now A Model

Michael Wacha is now a model, apparently. (Insert joke about having more free time since he’s on DL, etc., etc., etc.) In this Month’s issue of GQ Magazine (the one with Emily Ratajkowski on the cover – yes, the same girl that was in Robin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines Video’), we find a special advertising section (that’s labeled as such) meant to look like content (hence...
