Could Cole Hamels be an option for the Cardinals?

Yesterday I posted a list of possible starting pitching trade targets for the Cardinals.  Well, now you can add one more name to the list of possibilities.According to Jon Paul Morosi, the Phillies have made Cole Hamels available, however, the asking price is said to be very high.Hamels can block a trade to 20 teams, however, the Cardinals are not one of those 20.  The Dodgers...

Poll: Which St. Louis Cardinals player would you hate to see traded the most?

I originally wanted to title this post, “Which Cards player is off-limits the most?” Problem with that is, many reasonable fans would realize that no player is off-limits. If the right deal was proposed, you would be willing to part with that one “untouchable” prospect. I also chose this question because the trade deadline is this week, and there is a great chance the Cardinals...

A tale of two slumps: Craig and Taveras aren't making Matheny's job any easier

ST. LOUIS -- If ever there has been more fuss made over a guy hitting .200, it must have been before my time. And I'm quite old. First, the pleas came to get Oscar Taveras to the majors. Now that he's arrived, apparently for the long haul, the cries come daily to put him in the lineup. On one hand, I get it. The 22-year right fielder is considered by the Cardinals -- and...

Cardinals call up Oscar Taveras...again

Remember earlier this year when fantasy baseball owners' heads exploded because the Cardinals called up Oscar Taveras and he hit a home run in his first game? And then they had to slowly collect their brain matter and reposition it in their skulls after Taveras hit just .189 in 11 games before eventually getting sent back to the minors? Well, get your Gallagher-tarps out because...

Should the Cardinals trade Oscar Taveras to get David Price?

There's been much speculation surrounding the Cardinals and David Price lately.  The Cards starting rotation is hurting and Price would certainly provide the team with a one-two punch, along with Adam Wainwright, that could match any other team in baseball. The problem is that, to acquire a player like Price, the Cards may have to part ways with top prospect Oscar Taveras. ...

Oscar Taveras demotion should not be lead story for St. Louis Cardinals

When the St. Louis Cardinals made it official on Friday by activating first baseman Matt Adams off the disabled list and by sending prized prospect Oscar Taveras down to the minors, the interwebs in St. Louis nearly exploded.  Here is a snippet of what #BFIB had to say on the matter, and of course, I am sarcastically paraphrasing: How dare the Cardinals send down the club’s newest...
