Cruz is Good, but He’s No Molina

RandyKarrakerFeatured

When I mentioned last week that the Cardinals were finished when it was announced that All Star catcher Yadier Molina would miss eight to 12 weeks with surgery for a torn thumb ligament, I got a lot of blowback from the Redbird diehards.

As NHL free agency begins on Tuesday, there’s really only one need the Blues have to fill, and only one free agent who could fill it. After already signing Brian Elliott to pair with Jake Allen in goal, the Blues will let Ryan Miller walk. The defense appears set with the trade of Roman Polak to Toronto for Carl Gunnarsson. ...

Cardinals’ Bullpen a Concern

RandyKarrakerFeatured

I figured that the key for the Cardinals would be home cooking after playing 26 of their first 38 games on the road and, sure enough, they’ve taken two out of three in the first two series of this stretch of 18 of 21 at home. The keys are as obvious in victory as they were in defeat as the Cardinals ...

Rams Can Storm to Relevance with 2014 Draft

Greg Robinson with Roger Goodell

Even during the Greatest Show on Turf era, when the Rams were thrilling us with offensive fireworks and winning all the time, there was a group of fans that wanted the franchise to revert to defense-first, smash-mouth football. Today’s Rams are running a game-based offense with a strong defense, and they certainly drafted like they want to enhance that image. In ...
