How the Cardinals can improve their defense

How the Cardinals can improve their defense

Just consistently play the best defenders! Defense has been a hot topic this off-season. The team has talked about improving there. They let Matt Holliday and Brandon Moss go, replacing them with Dexter Fowler. It’s also been a reason to not acquire players. With only one major move on the position player side, people are wondering: is that enough to turn around the defense? Well, it’s a start. The other is sticking to doing things that the team has talked about doing. We’re going to talk about advanced defensive metrics. One of those, is Ulimate Zone Rating (UZR). Here is a page that...

The need for another outfielder on the Cardinals

The need for another outfielder on the Cardinals

Entering the 2017 season with only Dexter Fowler, Randal Grichuk, Stephen Piscotty, and Tommy Pham is an unnecessary risk which the Cardinals can and should avoid. With the departures of Brandon Moss (probable) and Matt Holliday (definite), this off-season, the St. Louis Cardinals, a team which a couple of years ago had far more outfielders than it had spots to put them, suddenly faces a shortage of outfielders. The December signing of Dexter Fowler, if nothing else, gives the Cardinals depth in the outfield—not only is Fowler a player capable of an everyday starter role, he has also been...

The Cardinals should bet big on Carlos Martinez

A realistic deal that is a win-win for Carlos, the Cardinals, and us, the fans. The Cardinals are a solid all-around team. So much so, that a common complaint is that the roster is hard to upgrade. In the 2013-2014 off-season, signing Jhonny Peralta was a huge upgrade over the nightmare that was Pete Kozma and Daniel Descalso sharing starting duties. The trade for Jason Heyward was a huge upgrade at the time over a younger Randal Grichuk. This year, the signing of Dexter Fowler filled the only real hole in the lineup. The Cardinals are a team full of capable starters, short on high-end...

Another vote for bringing Brandon Moss back

Another vote for bringing Brandon Moss back

Moss is the best outfielder left likely to take a reserve role With the signing of Dexter Fowler and Brett Cecil, the heavy lifting aspect of the Cardinals’ off-season is probably over. Whether you supported signing Justin Turner or Edwin Encarnacion, both those options are off the table now. Word is the Cardinals are no longer in the Brian Dozier sweepstakes. Jose Bautista looks like he might be heading back to Toronto. Still, that doesn’t mean there are not other moves to be made. Roster maintenance if you will. There is the issue of outfield depth. The team currently has Tommy Pham...
