Bernie covers this on Friday’s show and covers both the pro and college football slates with ESPN’s Ron Jaworski and Fox Sports’ Tim Brando.

Well played, John Mozeliak. The GM was correct; there was a trade market for Jaime Garcia. If anything the Cardinals received more of a return than I anticipated. Not that the Atlanta Braves handed over elite prospects to obtain the eccentric left; as anyone of sound mind understands there was no chance of that. Garcia …

A few days ago the Cardinals officially moved on from Brayan Pena as their backup catcher. Not that Pena was ever in a St. Louis uniform long enough to make sure we’d remember he signed a two-year, $5 million free-agent contract with the Cards last winter. Pena was a jolly good soul who actually tried …

The Cardinals’ four-year deal with reliever Brett Cecil may look good for a few years, but ESPN’s Jim Bowden says it’s a terrible deal on the business side. Miklasz – New Cardinals Reliever Brett Cecil: An Interchangeable Weapon for Mike Matheny

New Cardinals Reliever Brett Cecil: An Interchangeable Weapon for Mike Matheny

By Bernie Miklasz | November 22, 2016 | 10 Comments

The addition of reliever Brett Cecil should be good for the Cardinals, healthy for their bullpen, and beneficial to manager Mike Matheny … but only if Matheny takes full advantage of the flexibility provided by his new shutdown left-hander. Before signing Cecil to a four-year deal worth $30 million, Cards GM John Mozeliak talked to Matheny about the …

The Cardinals inked the largest reliever contract in their history with their signing Brett Cecil to a four-year, $30.5 million deal this past weekend. And no matter one’s feelings about the contract’s scope, two things can’t be argued; Cecil has a high strikeout per nine innings rate, which goes well with the amount of relief …

The Cardinals paid a lot of money to beat the free-agent market rush for left-handed reliever Brett Cecil.

Other Cecil recruiters were proposing three-year terms to coax Cecil to leave the Toronto Blue Jays. The reported cost of …

Your St. Louis Blues have won the first two of their three-game homestand, and if they win tomorrow night against Nashville, that’s called a winning streak. It has happened before. All jokes aside, Jaden Schwartz had a stellar performance in Thursday’s 3-2 win over San Jose, a satisfying outing against their ouster from last postseason. …
