Has Oscar Taveras been treated any differently as a rookie than former Cardinal top prospects?

Has Oscar Taveras been treated any differently as a rookie than former Cardinal top prospects?

The answer might surprise you... Coming into the 2014 season, the Cardinals had the potential for two players to get significant votes in the National League Rookie of the Year voting. David Freese had been dealt in the offseason to make way for former first round pick Kolten Wong to join the infield while Matt Carpenter made the transition to his more natural position at the hot corner. Oscar Taveras never got much of a chance to make the opening day roster due to the ankle injury that ended his 2013 season with Memphis, but the thought was that Taveras would be up in the big leagues at...

Patriots have running back, defensive end in for tryout

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots had third-year defensive end Scott Solomon and rookie running back David Fluellen in for tryouts on Thursday. The 6-foot-3, 262-pound Solomon played in six games for the Buccaneers this season and was released this week when the Buccaneers signed returner Trindon Holliday. A seventh-round draft choice out of the Titans in 2012, Solomon played in 12 games as a rookie in Tennessee before hooking on with the Jets for a game in 2013 and then landing in Tampa Bay.

Bruins start slow, lose Zdeno Chara

The Bruins played one of their most dominant periods of the season last night.Unfortunately for them, it was preceded by two of their worst, when the New York Islanders seemed to beat them to every loose puck and win more than their share of the 50-50 battles. The result for the B’s was a 3-2 defeat at the Garden.But as disappointing as that loss was for the Bruins, it may not have been their worst one of the night.

Blackhawks vs. Predators: Three Stars of the Game

Picking three stars isn't quite as thrilling after a regulation loss, but somebody has to do it, right? Losses like the one that the Chicago Blackhawks experienced on Thursday night have a way of getting under your skin in the most painful of manners. As melodramatic as that may sound, it almost surely isn't anywhere near the type of overreaction we'll see across social media until the next time the Blackhawks hit the ice. As sloppy an outing as it may have been for the first 40 minutes of their 3-2 loss, there were some small victories in the loss, the first one in regulation for the Hawks...

Sharks lose roller coaster game in final minute of regulation

Another third period collapse sinks San Jose. To a large extent, it's unfair to continue judging the Sharks through the lens of what happened last April. But given that they were literally 3-0 at one point this season before crashing back down to earth and have made something of a habit out of third period collapses, the comparisons are inevitable. There are far more pressing concerns than reliving the team's playoff loss to the Kings through their most recent defeat, a 5-4 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets that was sealed with a final minute Mark Letestu deflection, though. Frankly the...
