Ian Kinsler is not a good fit for the Cardinals - A Hunt and Peck

Ian Kinsler is not a good fit for the Cardinals - A Hunt and Peck

Note: the article below was actually written by John J. Fleming. I am stealing it. He said I could - begged me to steal it basically. The words below are all his. The Adam Wainwright and Carlos Martínez gifs were added by me. Enjoy. On Wednesday night, seemingly out of nowhere, an opinion started to circulate on Twitter that the St. Louis Cardinals should acquire Detroit Tigers second baseman Ian Kinsler. While rumors about the Cardinals pursuing veteran second basemen, notably Minnesota Twins second baseman Brian Dozier, circulated earlier in the off-season, this pairing came seemingly...

What difference does it make if Wainwright or Martinez start for the St. Louis Cardinals on opening day?

I’m curious about the hub bub that’s gone on surrounding the decision about who would get the opening day start for the St. Louis Cardinals, Adam Wainwright or Carlos Martinez. …

Carlos Martinez starting on Opening Day means everything (or nothing)

Carlos Martinez starting on Opening Day means everything (or nothing)

What history tells us about winning the first game of the season News broke yesterday that Carlos Martinez will get the ball to kick off the Cardinals’ season on April 2 when they host the Cubs. This will be the first time that Adam Wainwright will have a seat on the bench in a Cardinals opener since Kyle Lohse took a no-hitter into the 7th to commemorate brand new Marlins Park in 2012. Martinez will also only be the fifth different Cardinal to start an opener since 2001 (Matt Morris, Chris Carpenter, Lohse, Wainwright). For his part, Wainwright is taking the news in stride.

2017 NL Central Preview: St. Louis Cardinals

2017 NL Central Preview: St. Louis Cardinals

With the Cubs on top, the Cardinals have a big hill to climb to make it back to the playoffs. Do they have what it takes to get back to the top? By Cardinals standards, 2016 was a disappointing season. They missed the playoffs after appearing in five straight and went from a 100-win team to an 86-win team. Age caught up with several long-term Cardinals, while growing pains affected some of the younger players. With the Cubs now expected to start a dynasty (at least from what many of the previews say), the Cardinals will have to contend with them if they want to make it back to the playoffs....

St. Louis Cardinals: The Unfortunate Decline Of Adam Wainwright

Adam Wainwright has been a mainstay in the St. Louis Cardinals rotation for nearly a decade.  The three-time All-Star is hoping to bounce back from nothing short of a down year. Adam Wainwright‘s poor performance can be attributed to the fact that he only appeared in seven games in 2015 for the St. Louis Cardinals.   […] St. Louis Cardinals: The Unfortunate Decline Of Adam Wainwright - Redbird Rants - Redbird Rants - A St. Louis Cardinals Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More
