St. Louis Cardinals: Waiver wire for starting pitching

The St. Louis Cardinals are at a crossroad with what to do with their starting rotation. What was once a strength for the St. Louis Cardinals has now deteriorated in a matter of a few starts. With the injury to Adam Wainwright and inconsistent pitching from Mike Leake, the Cardinals have two options to consider […] St. Louis Cardinals: Waiver wire for starting pitching - Redbird Rants - Redbird Rants - A St. Louis Cardinals Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Ortiz: Cardinals must use depth to bounce Leake from rotation

Mike Leake has a no-trade clause and, even worse for the Cardinals, three years and $53 million remaining on the five-year, $80 million contract the team gave him after the 2016 season.

Cardinals are feline good after clawing back to an 8-5 victory

Cardinals are feline good after clawing back to an 8-5 victory

I am so sorry. It had to be done. The Cardinals won thanks to Yadier Molina, powered by his love of kittens. Besides starting a season long narrative that will enrage Cardinals haters and delight Cardinals fans, the Cardinals won an important baseball game. The Reds won, but everyone else in the NL Central lost, thus gaining a game on everyone who matters. You've got to be kitten me with this team. The game did not start well, but that's no problem for this current version of the Cardinals offense, which may or may not be related to the opposing pitching. Mike Leake was not terrible,...

Cardinals at Reds, Game 1: Previews and Predictions

St. Louis Cardinals @ Cincinnati Reds 6:40 PM ET Mike Leake vs. Asher Wojciechowski The Reds open up a seven-game home stand tonight with the first of a three-game series against the Red Birds. Even better news: Flo Rida takes the stage after the game. After a strong April (1.35 ERA and 0.99 WHIP), Leake has regressed nearly each month, which included a 4.76 ERA and 1.94 WHIP in July. In his last start against the D-Backs, he pitched five full, gave up three runs on four hits (two were dingers), hit two batters, walked two and struck out four. Wojciechowski is taking Adleman’s spot in the...
