Cardinals Batting Stances (plus Chris Carpenter's return and ISO randomness) (photos included)

I recently got to practice my photography at the Cards/Cubs game at Wrigley last Friday, which included Chris Doesn'tCarepenter's return. Forgive me if I am bit scatterbrained now, I'm moving out...

Three Generations of Cardinals Third Basemen

There have been some big droughts in reliable third basemen in my Cardinals fandom (which dates back to the early 80s), but there are three third basemen that can be said to be 3 key Cardinals...

The Evolution of Jason Motte and Mitchell Boggs

Haven't seen a pitch f/x in quite a while, so I figured it would be interesting to look at what Motte and Boggs have been doing as lynchpins in the bullpen. And to do this, what better way than to...

Historically Good

This year's Cardinal offense is historically good. Starting in April, we knew we might be seeing something special... going by a stat called wRC+ (which is similar to OPS+ but is a more accurate...

Defenders Most Ridiculous

This year's aces*

I'd like to take a look at starters' success in the first half of baseball, and perhaps make some guesses at Cy Young candidates (which I will probably revisit later in the season). Since I don't...

Bullpen and staying above .500

Going in to the season this season, I was not greatly concerned about the bullpen. After all, if a team could survive last year's bullpen troubles, Mozeliak could possibly make some maneuvers and...

Viva El League early season chat

Viva El League so far this year has been a much more "active" league than last year already. lots of trades, baseball talk, and good matchups.

Reds send Chapman back to 'pen after getting ready to be starter

+

The crazy-ass Cincinnati Reds have decided to send Aroldis Chapman back to the bullpen, after they prepared him to be a starter this spring. Dusty Baker views Chapman to be more valuable in the bullpen due to the injury to closer Ryan Madson. Baker claims that Chapman will some day be an excellent starter. I guess this means Homer Bailey and Mike Leake's jobs in the starting rotation are not in jeopardy.
