Hey, let's fix the Cardinals!
Baseball Nation
Yes, just a week removed from very nearly winning yet another World Series, they're worrying about what went wrong, or what might go wrong, than what just went so very, very right.
Brett Lewis's insight:

The Cards are something else. The day after loseing the World Series the front office was in full effect back in St. Louis. They know that they have to be ready for the next year because they plan on being even better than this year. The Cardinals won another National Pennant that they can brag about as well. But the front office already said that work needs to be done and within one day they made sure of it. They need a shortstop, so that is first on the list of things to do for the GM John Mozalik. Also getting a little bit more power in the lineup. Its safe to say that things are looking up for this young Cardinal team and organization.

Cardinals will make qualifying offer for Beltran - MiamiHerald.com

Cardinals will make qualifying offer for Beltran - MiamiHerald.com | Cardinals Baseball | Scoop.it
Cardinals will make qualifying offer for Beltran MiamiHerald.com Neither Matheny nor Mozeliak expressed any regrets about using postseason roster spots for rookie 15-game winner Shelby Miller and deposed closer Edward Mujica, who had 35 saves...
Brett Lewis's insight:

The Cardinals did make an offer to Carlos Beltran. Its not the offer that he probably was wanting, but its a 14.1 million dollar for one year. They know Carlos wanted a multi year deal but it just coulnd't work with the Carindls because of there propects and his  age. He was a huge leader this season for the Cardinals and whoever picks him up will be getting a great player, and also a great teammate.

Wacha leads Cardinals with arm, bat

Wacha leads Cardinals with arm, bat | Cardinals Baseball | Scoop.it
Michael Wacha pitched seven shutout innings and drove in two
runs as the St. Louis Cardinals routed the Pittsburgh Pirates 9-2
Sunday for a three-game sweep.
Brett Lewis's insight:

Cardinals needed a great performace from there highly rated rookie, and thats exactly what they got.  Michael Wacha took the mound today for St. Louis and not only gave seven brillant innings; but also drove in two runners as well.  This kid can do it at, not only did he pitch great but he kept the Cardinals in first place with a games and a half lead. The bats have been ratteling as of late for St. Louis and thats exactly what they need this late in the season.  

The Cardinals have to keep this pace going if they want to achieve not only a playoff birth, but possibly even a home field advantage at that.

Cardinals, Rangers could be match in trade talks
CBSSports.com
We're nearing the actual hot stove season, so it's rampant rumor time.
Brett Lewis's insight:

The Cardinals, and Rangers could have a serious trade coming around. The Rangers are looking for a young talented pitcher, and the  Cards are in need of a short stop. Both could benefit for a trade of Either Lance Lynn or Shelby Miller, for Elvis Andrus who is a 25 year old and starting in 2015 a 118 million dollar contract the Cardinals would have to take on so thats a downfall. Its a lot of money but its definetly a possibility. Both teams can make there teams stronger by doing so, making the fan base just increase.

Brett Lewis's insight:

Missouri Tigers just took on Kentucky this previous weekend and getting another win.  Mizzou still bouncing back from the loss two weeks ago form South Carolina in Overtime. The tigers are now ranked number 9 in the nation, and they still have a shot at going to the SEC Championship if they can beat Ole Miss and Texas A&M. THe better Mizzou does this year will help bring in more rucruits and more kids to there campus. The Players want to come there to play cause Mizzou uses the Spread offensive palybook which is a throw first and throw often. Even if Mizzou doesn't go to the championship this year, they have a positive PR going forward with how good they have done since joing the SEC 1 year and a half ago.

Cardinals top Pirates 7-2, tie for NL Central lead

Cardinals top Pirates 7-2, tie for NL Central lead | Cardinals Baseball | Scoop.it
Matt Holliday and David Freese drove in two runs apiece, and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 7-2 on Sunday to move back into a tie for the NL Central lead.
Brett Lewis's insight:

This series was huge for not only the Cardinals, but also for the Pirates. The past two games against the Pirates the Cardinals struggles to get runs. But that wasn't the only thing that struggled; the pitching of the Cardinals wasn't too great and until Joe Kelly came out today it had been pretty awful.

 

To add onto that, the Cardinals got runs early today. Something that they havn't been able to do in the last two games.  They earned 3 runs in the first inning alone.  Then backed that up with 2 more in the third.  Things finally started to fall together for them.
