Gio Gonzalez outduels Michael Wacha

In a tight game, the Nationals douse the Cardinals chance at a win due to Gio Gonzalez's stellar pitching.

Cubs At Cardinals Recap 4/11: Train Wreck!

A game that no one wanted to see. Cubs fans were horrified by a bullpen. Cardinals fans were horrified by uncertainty (and a bullpen). Both were horrified by umpire Gabe Morales. And yet it was captivating, in a train wreck sort of way.


Matt Holliday in 2014

The original Matt, Matt Holliday has been one of the most consistent hitters around for a while now. Since 2004, Matt H. is a 140 wRC+ hitter. Holliday projects out to a .186 ISO and 20+ home run...

Bourjos And Justice: Predicting The Cardinals Center Field

I'll be the first to admit I have no idea how this is going to play out. Bourjos is a quite light hitting outfielder who lacks on-base skills in his career to inspire a ton of confidence in his...


Allen Craig: Projecting Most of a Season in 2014?

Last season, Allen Craig hit 97 RBI in 134 games. If he were to play a full season, that would be around 20 more of those sweet run scoring events. That would be nice! The projections, however, are...

Matt Carpenter, What Will He Do In 2014?

Matt Carpenter's first full season was last year, where he was an All Star, played decent to good defense at second base, and just hit the shit out of the baseball in the leadoff spot. Will he have...


What Would Jhonny Do?

If Jhonny Peralta were a Cardinal in 2014, what would he do? Well, he is, and there are some projections out there that do the maths and can help us know what to expect... unlike trying to expect...


Projecting Wong/Ellis in 2014

Since I am not confident that either player will get more playing time than the other, I am going to simply average their projections... but first, a brief analysis of each player. Kolten Wong is...


Big City In '14

Big City boy Matt Adams is listed at 6' 3" and 260 lbs... something tells me he may weigh a little more than that, but that's up for debate. Matt H. may be colossal, but Matt A. is a juggernaut....


Projecting Yadier Molina In 2014

Yadi Molina is entering his 11th season in MLB and as a Cardinal. During his career, he has played in over 4600 innings, the vast majority of which has seen him control the game from behind the...


Ranking MLB Pitchers With SIERA and Total Batters Faced

Being that SIERA is possibly the most predictive stat, and the amount of batters faced shows at the very least a pitcher's endurance to some extent, I would like to take a look at the most...


Rating The Cardinals Pitchers Abilities

This post is an attempt to get an idea, beyond fWAR and FIP, how great Cardinals pitchers were in 2013. It is by no means a better method than fWAR, but I just wanted to check some things out. I...

Trevor Rosenthal, What Is He Doing

I have been wanting to write a fanpost about Rosenthal's repertoire for months now, and I've finally found a small window of time to do so. This is going to be more of a copy and pasting of charts...


How Good Is This Team?

I was trying to post this as a fanshot but I was getting an error, which lead me to think, why not post it here? h...


2013 Blogger Day at Busch Stadium

So, yesterday somehow I found myself at the 2013 Cardinals Blogger event. I was invited to write for one of the UCB blogs, I've been writing a few articles on both...

The Baseball of 2012

Now, I'm not the most stringent adherent to the WAR stat, but I think it is pretty clear that Mike Trout and Buster Posey are the main contenders within the baseball world of things. Look at Mike:...


2012 Cy Young Awards: Will Kershaw and Verlander win?

Back at midseason, I wrote a post which averaged out the different sabermetric rate stats scaled to ERA and thought about other things like IP regarding the best starting pitchers. Strasburg and...
