Wong Went Ahead And Had Himself A Night

Alright, now. Do your thing Kolten Wong. LINK HERE He pretty much strapped his teammates on his back last night and carried them to a win against a team that many picked to represent the NL in World Series. Tre-men-dous game. We even got some e-mail about Mr. Wong… OK, I’m finally on the Kolten Wong bandwagon. Call me a skeptic, but whenever the Cards bring up a top prospect...

Think There’s No Offense? Wong Answer.

For the second straight night, the Cardinals put up double digits in hits .  We talked yesterday about St. Louis not getting hits at the right time and last night proved it.  They scored seven runs on 11 hits instead of one run on 12.  When and what kind matter. There’s no doubt that Kolten Wong was the Hero.  It was his second [...]

Does Jason Heyward need to change his approach at the plate?

Jason Heyward isn't exactly off to a blazing start with the Cardinals. The right-fielder is hitting just .193 through 13 games and although the sample size is small, some may still be wondering, when will Heyward start hitting. Well there, are plenty of theories going around right now, but the St. Louis Post-Dispatch things that perhaps Heyward is being too aggressing at the plate...

Matt Adams Not Off To The Ideal Start

It’s fair to say that the Cardinals had questions about Matt Adams. Signing Mark Reynolds served a duel purpose: 1) Let Matt Adams know that he’s going to have to earn his playing time in 2015 and that if he doesn’t perform, the team has viable options to replace him on a regular basis. 2) Actually replace Matt Adams if he isn’t able to get the job done.

Will lack of power hurt St. Louis Cardinals in 2015?

The St. Louis Cardinals opened the season with a win on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball two weeks ago, and added another victory on the national telecast this Sunday.

Their 8-3 record would indicate that there’s not much to scrutinize with the team at this time; however, there is still one...

Is Matt Holliday baseball's most underrated star?

A player can become a poster child of sorts for his club’s offense. Edwin Encarnacion notwithstanding, I think of Jose Bautista and his pull power when I think of the Blue Jays. Mark Trumbo’s free-swinging ways embody the Diamondbacks, at least for me. Ben Zobrist hasn’t even played a game for the A’s yet, and […]
