4/28/2016 Recap: Cards Drop Series Finale in the Desert

Cards muster very little offense against a guy named Rubby and split series 2-2 with Diamondbacks Late start tonight. Michael Wacha takes the hill tonight for the Cardinals; Rubby de la Rosa for the Diamondbacks. This is a getaway day and a really weird lineup. Our outfield features Stephen Piscotty in CF, Brandon Moss in RF, and Matt Holliday back in LF. For those of you just tuning in, Piscotty has for all intents and purposes never played CF. Also, Diaz is still batting 8th, even as he leads the NL in several offensive categories.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Things to watch: Wacha had zero K's but...

Can Mike Matheny manage this roster?

A deeper bench and more interchangeable parts will require something different than what we've seen from the manager in past. Plan A for the Cardinals offseason was to raise the ceiling with some superstar players. Once Plan A signed with the Red Sox and Cubs, respectively, it became clear that Plan B was to raise the floor. As a result, the Cardinals Opening Day bench was a significant upgrade over recent years. Couple that with the positional flexibility from corner guys like Brandon Moss and now Matt Holliday, and what you have is the makings of a more dynamic lineup, which can be...

Cardinals lose 6-5 in extras in frustrating loss to Pirates

The Cardinals played good enough to win, but Mike Matheny managed bad enough to lose. There are three certainties in life: Death, taxes, and the Cardinals facing two opponents when trying to win a game: the other team and their own manager.  "Maybe it will be different this year," all of us have probably asked to ourselves at one point over the past offseason.  This second game provides the answer: NOPE.  This is the same thing we've seen before right down to Matt Holliday being taken out of an extra inning game with the pitcher batting 3rd in his place.  (How does that happen EVERY...
