The Cardinals’ offense has been surprisingly good

A few weeks back, I wrote about the Cardinals’ offense and why many people believed it would be a weak spot for the team in 2016. That offense was mediocre in 2015, and the team did not make any major moves to upgrade their offense in the offseason. The loss of Jason Heyward certainly didn’t help, as Heyward was quietly one of the team’s best offensive players in 2015...

The Cardinals Seem To Be Getting Into Moral Victories

The adjustment from hunted to hunter is going to be harder than I anticipated. On Friday night, the Cardinals lost the opener of a three-game set against the Nationals 5 to 4. Mike Leake, the BIG off-season acquisition for the Birds took the L (0-3) and gave up all five runs. The Nation is growing restless. And they went to Twitter to tell him about it: Is it Mike Leake? Or Mike...

St. Louis Cardinals: Meet Aledmys Diaz

Say hello to Aledmys Diaz, the next great player out of the farm system of the St. Louis Cardinals. Through 19 games, Diaz batted a scorching and league-leading .468, which would rank as the second-highest all-time in the month of April if he keeps it up. The shortstop stumbled a bit last night in a 3-0 loss against the Arizona Diamondbacks, going 0-3. Now, in 20 games, he is only...

Pitchers Can’t Seem to Get the (A)Led(mys Diaz) Out

Note: the editor of this post played no part in the composition of its despicable title. All grievances should be directed to the author, Craig Edwards. Baseball is full of April surprises. Players who come seemingly out of nowhere. Albert Pujols was one such player back in 2001. So was Chris Shelton back in 2005, Devon Travis last year, and Trevor Story already this season.

Aledmys Diaz Is Officially MLB’s Top Current Hitter

We knew that Aledmys Diaz was on fire at the plate in 2016. But until last night’s 11-4 win over Arizona, the Cardinals shortstop did not have enough at-bats to qualify as a league leader. He does now. And his .468 (FOUR SIXTY EIGHT) average is the top mark in all of baseball. Diaz could go 1 for his next 38 and still be batting over .300! Listen – if we’re all being honest...

Who will carry the St. Louis Cardinals’ offense?

Through the first 19 games of his MLB career, St. Louis Cardinals’ outfielder Jeremy Hazelbaker (#41) has been a pleasant surprise.  Although, pleasant doesn’t quite do the justice that Hazelbaker’s early statistics seem to deserve.  The 28 year old rookie is batting .308 with five homeruns and 13 RBIs. What has not been impressive for Hazelbaker, however, is his patience...

St. Louis Cardinals: Who Will Step Up to Carry the Offense?

The St. Louis Cardinals have been off to a decent, but rather lackluster start to the 2016 season. The Redbirds carry the burden of being one of those franchises that has sky high expectations year in and year out.  While an 8-7 start is not bad by any means, The Cardinals have the talent to be performing at a much higher level. The woes with the pitching staff, mainly the starting...
