St. Louis Cardinals Roster

Is arbitration eligibility influencing call-ups?

The St. Louis Cardinals' bench is punchless. The Triple-A outfield is chock full of quality bats. Is arbitration eligibility one of the factors influencing the Cards' decision on whether to promote an outfielder to be a major-league bench bat?

How disappointing have the Cards batters been?

The St. Louis offense has gotten off to a slow start this season. Which individual players have been the most disappointing?

*Can Taveras and Bourjos learn to play nice?

Can Taveras still be allowed to smash everything to bits, if Bourjos is always in his way?

Jon Jay, Peter Bourjos and playing time in center

The Cardinals came in to 2014 with two centerfielders vying for playing time. Peter Bourjos received most of the the starts early on, but Jon Jay has carved out more starts in the last ten games.

*Pitching depth & the definition of "replacement"

Last season, the Cardinals' redefined replacement to be average.

Cardinals lose a game they deserved to lose

Miller's command, Cardinals offense, Cardinals defense all shaky in a loss to the Washington Nationals. They settle for a series split.

Cardinals summon Lyons as Kelly fill-in

The Cardinals have broken the glass and summoned their No. 6 starter from Memphis.

Pitching to the shift against Matt Adams

Pitching Matt Adams away while employing an infield shift expecting him to pull the ball is not a contradictory use of tactics.

Recap 4/19: Cards defeat lefty-heavy lineup 4-3

Lynn was average, although he was average against a team with more lefties in the lineup than righties. The Nationals defense loses the game for the Nationals as Zimmerman was good.

What to expect from Tyler Lyons in the rotation

Tyler Lyons will likely take over the open spot in the rotation for at least two starts. Here is what we can expect from him in the interim.

*Should the Cardinals be calling up Oscar Taveras?

Yes, he's a great prospect. Yes, I think he's ready to hit in the big leagues. No, I don't think the Cardinals should call him up right now. A lesson in delayed gratification.

DFR: Home runs from shortstops in the high minors

Greg Garcia and Aledmys Diaz homer as the system goes 2-2.

Gio Gonzalez outduels Michael Wacha

In a tight game, the Nationals douse the Cardinals chance at a win due to Gio Gonzalez's stellar pitching.
