Monday Mailbag: Expectations For Michael Wacha

Greetings folks,I am here to help you kick the dust off the legs and start the work week off right. Taking a cue from fellow Farm writer Chase Probert, I am going to take a stab at the mailbag this morning. A little question and answer session for your morning stretch. A couple of times over the past week, I asked Cards fans on Twitter what their lingering questions were as the team...

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....

Cardinals starting pitchers 'set the tone' with early wakeup call

JUPITER, Fla. – Michael Wacha was late for work Sunday morning.

St. Louis Cardinals: Michael Wacha Isn’t An Ace Yet

Good morning ladies and gents,As I digest the worst ending in Super Bowl history, allow me to fill Cardinal Nation in on a small fact with spring training short 18 days away. Michael Wacha isn’t an ace yet. Before June of 2014, he wasn’t an ace. This has to be noted because all winter I have heard about Wacha being called a co-ace to Adam Wainwright in the Cardinals Rotation...

St Louis Cardinals: NLCS preview vs Giants

The St. Louis Cardinals are in their 4th straight NLCS, further proving their dominance over the national league. They will take on a familiar foe in the Giants, a team that knocked them out of the playoffs in 2012 in a 7-game NLCS.
