  • Cards have won 6 out of last 7. Wong's been in the lineup everyday, Martinez almost everyday, and the outfield has consisted of the combination of Fowler/Piscotty/Grichuk, or Martinez subbing for one of them everyday during that stretch. If Matheny will stay with the lineup this team was built to have, they can win games. If he goes back to trying to squeeze Matt Adams and Peralta in then they will be in trouble.

  • Even with the injury bug, Cards playing some good baseball. I think Pham has earned his right to stay. He has been raking lately.

  • Well, look who's in first place. Sierra is fast.

    He was rounding third about the same time Fowlers ball hit the wall. Very impressed with this young man.

    Hope he can keep hitting like this.  He is very fun to watch.  Not sure what happened on that ball he dove for, though.  Should've caught that one.

  • I thought when we lost 3 outfielders in 3 days that Bader would certainly be called up. I just don't have a clue as to what the outfield solution is. We are deep right now. I'm wondering who we could trade for whatever. I say that because of the lack of early draft picks next cycle.

    Two words: Luis Robert

    Cuban outfielder, supposed to be a legit 5 tool guy. He can sign with any team on the 20th of May I believe. Top 10 prospect according to some. If I remember correctly, the Cardinals are already over their international signing figure and can't sign any international players for two years after this season. There would be no further penalties to sign Robert. There's a bit of a fit in that regard, especially when you consider the draft penalties forthcoming.

    I think I read that he might begin his career as high as AA ball if the Cardinals sign him, he's supposedly that advanced. I'm smart enough to know that I know zilch about evaluating baseball talent, but I have seen video of him and he looks the part. I also know as a Razorback football fan that from time to time hype prospects are just that, hype.

    If he is what they say he is I think the Cardinals could be players. They are one of the teams that had a private workout with him, so I guess there is at least some interest there. It will be interesting to watch it play out.

  • The thread title for this year should be The Rundown Redbirds. Our starters have been doing a great job in my opinion. Our Bullpen is just awful. I hope this isn't the Brett Cecil we see for the next 3 1/2 years.

  • I like Matheny's demeanour as a manager. I think the GM is the one who needs to held accountable for resigning Braxton for this year and having to pay for nothing. Signing Brett Cecil, which could work out in the future, but mostly for the Correa scandal with the Astro's. That was MO's watch and his man. That effectively wounds our ability to draft top prospects.

  • I haven't been on this year much -- what do y'all think we need to do to right the ship?

    Fire Matheny?

    Ship KW, move MC permanently back to 3rd, start Gyorko permanently at 2nd and trade for a big time 1B bat?

    Something else?

    Winning 4 of the last 5 has been nice; but there are major issues. The thing is, it's still not too late to address some of these issues and win the division.

    Fair points, but Mo has made many very good moves and the Cardinals have been among baseball's best over the course of his tenure.

  • Was MO's promotion(?) really a demotion? GM to director of baseball operations? I really believe it was a good move. After all, you can't fire everybody.

    No, bad as you may want it to be, it's not a demotion.

    Theoretically a good move because it moves somebody that has the shrewd mentality that this organization has to survive by into a position that he will be able to have a different/higher view than he did have. Mozeliak is now less encumbered with the day to day stuff and can focus on the more long range.

    I just hope it's not a 'this is what everybody else is doing' thing.

  • The Cardinals need a trade. They need to deal some pitching and surplus outfielders to get a bat for today and tomorrow. The Cardinals need a bat in the heart of the order that is scary.

    Stanton is pie in the sky, but I think Ozuna or Yelich are legitimate possibilities. My thing about acquiring an outfielder is would that be the real place of need? Pham has played really well and should be here, but it may be time to sell high on him. Fowler isn't leaving and Piscotty is unlikely to be moved, and if Piscotty can start hitting a Fowler, Pham, Piscotty outfield would look pretty good. Yes, I'm for moving Fowler off of CF, his defense is lacking.

    The Grichuk experiment doesn't need to be going on at the Major League level. Let him hack it out in AAA or see if he has some trade value, hopefully as part of a package for a legitimate bat and glove at SS.

    I don't think the bullpen is as bad as it seems. I think it's going to round into form with Cecil looking better, Siegrist being healthy, and Duke's imminent return. However, some help out there wouldn't be the end of the world.

    Anyway, here's hoping the Cardinals get to .500 today and can somehow play well enough and make the right moves to make this thing interesting down the stretch.

  • The Cardinals do need to trade. Either pick up a great piece of the puzzle or sell off some of the marginal folks for prospects.

  • What a mess of a season, most frustrating. Something has to change. If a major deadline deal isn't happening (it looks increasingly to me like one isn't), I want to see major changes this offseason. Everything should be on the table and I think everything is:
