Friends, I know it doesn’t feel significant, but it is. Mike Matheny and the Cardinals have to get better at replay challenges. Sunday’s 1-0 win was a brisk, tense game.

Before Holliday’s at bat, Kolten Wong hit...

First was replacing catcher Yadier Molina , who will be sidelined until at least September with a sprained thumb. General Manager John Mozeliak filled that void by signing veteran free agent A.J. Pierzynski before [...]

The Cardinals have signed AJ Pierzynski and he will join the team today in Chicago. Whoo. Boy. The dude is controversial. And he likes it that way. His nickname? Captain Chaos. His former manager’s feeling about AJ? I paraphrase here: When you play against him, you hate him. When you play with him, you hate him a little bit less. So why? Let’s see if we can’t figure this...

Prospecting for Catchers: A look at the catching depth in the St. Louis Cardinals organization

Twice a year, I like to look at the depth of each position in the Cardinals organization. What I like to do is to rank them based on which players have the best chance of having an impactful major league career.
