the Cardinals:

    The perfect answer for what to do with the St. Louis Cardinals does not exist.  Major League Baseball has options, but every potential solution comes with a wince, a grimace, a caveat or a condition. The missteps and poor decisions that have brought the Cardinals — often by following flawed, naively optimistic MLB protocols — to this point have assured there are no perfect answers. While the NHL, NBA and WNBA have managed to stay almost completely virus-free in their bubbles, the Cardinals have now had 10 players and seven staff members test positive for COVID-19. This coronavirus debacle makes the Marlins’ early outbreak look like a hiccup.  MORE: MLB reportedly exploring a bubble for postseason The Cardinals have...
    The MLB is reportedly considering a bubble system for the postseason. According to ESPN, the MLB is looking at using a bubble system of three cities to accommodate the 16 teams that will be in the playoffs.

    Zach Plesac got caught. He regrets his actions. The Cleveland pitcher was sent home Sunday from Chicago, where the team was wrapping up a weekend series vs. the White Sox, after it was learned he had breached the team hotel Saturday to meet up with friends in the city, violating team rules and MLB’s COVID-19 protocols in the process. Given that the Cardinals and Marlins have had their seasons turned upside down by the coronavirus, Cleveland was not about to allow the right-hander near the team. It arranged for a car service to transport him to Ohio,  The Athletic reported , adding that Plesac and the driver received point-of-care testing before leaving. Plesac will now be quarantined for 72 hours and tested daily. Plesac,...
    Credit: Abbie Parr/Getty Images Larry Fitzgerald has always bucked the diva wide receiver trend and the future Hall of Famer proved why he’s one of the NFL’s most humble superstars as Cardinals training camp got underway. When it comes to the most likable players in the NFL, the person who immediately comes to mind is Arizona Cardinals wideout, Larry Fitzgerald. He rarely, if ever, complains on the field or provides bulletin board material when speaking with the media. Most importantly, Fitzgerald is an extremely charitable person, as he won the NFL’s Walter Payton Man of the Year Award in 2016. If you thought it was impossible for Fitzgerald to be more humble than he already is, take a look at...

    The Major League Baseball season abridged to 60 games by coronavirus this summer seems closer to be canceled on Friday than being completed with a World Series in October. Much closer. And it didn’t take long to get here. A week into a season that opened July 23, baseball had postponed 15 total games because of players and staff testing positive for COVID-19, the potentially deadly respiratory disease caused by the novel coronavirus that had killed more than 153,000 Americans. Three more games were postponed Friday night, when six teams sat idled. The Twins nearly became one of them but a day of rapid-testing convinced MLB their game against the Cleveland Indians could go as scheduled. “There’s obviously been a...
    The Cardinals are the third team to report positive COVID-19 cases and the MLB's effort to play through a pandemic looks to be on shaky ground.

    Since the 2019 All-Star break, Jack Flaherty has been the best pitcher in baseball in nearly every statistical category. He will look to push the St. Louis Cardinals past the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday afternoon at Miller Park. Flaherty has given up three or fewer runs in each of his last 17 regular-season starts dating back to July 7, 2019. He has a 1.03 ERA and opponents are hitting below .145. The lone team that has had success against Flaherty in that span is the Brewers, who have beaten him twice as the Cardinals have given him three runs of support in those two starts. This is not the same Brewers team, though, as Mike Moustakas and Eric Thames,...

    Carlos Martinez, Cardinals (Photo by Hannah Foslien/Getty Images) Carlos Martinez had a rough first outing for the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday. They’ll need a strong performance from him moving forward. The National League Central figures to be a tight division, with the St. Louis Cardinals, Milwaukee Brewers, Chicago Cubs, and Cincinnati Reds all projected to be a factor in the race, with no one team clearly standing out among the rest. Thus, in a 60-game season, every player will be important, and that’s especially true with the starting pitching. The Cardinals’ rotation already took a hit when it was announced that Miles Mikolas was going to miss this season due to injury. It then became more important for Carlos...
    Mailbox full of readers ripping Dr. Fauci’s first pitch on national TV. To the doctor’s credit he is owning it. “Look, this thing isn’t going away and it’s going to get worse before it gets better. Whether it’s this year or next I’m not certain. That’s something I don’t like saying but that’s the way it is.” Twins will play their home opener Tuesday night. Minnesota is 2-1 after opening weekend, as are the visiting Cardinals. The 34-year-old righty Homer Bailey goes for the Twins, the veteran’s fourth team in the past two years.

(Photo by Norm Hall/Getty Images) Paul Goldschmidt may be the deciding factor for the Cardinals in 2020. Few sluggers have delivered as consistently as Paul Goldschmidt. From his earliest years in Arizona to his latest in St. Louis, Goldschmidt has always been a dominant force at the plate. Three consecutive 30-home run seasons, RBIs constantly hovering around 100 and runs in the same ballpark, along with a batting average near .300.

The 2020 MLB season is basically a crapshoot all the way around. With a 60-game schedule and players saying they are sitting out, this is the perfect year for young, up-and-coming teams and established teams to stake their claims at the top of league. One of those teams to look out for is the St. Louis Cardinals. The schedule is a key part to the Cards’ 2020 season. With 40 games against division rivals and 20 in interleague play against the AL Central, there is...

    Next1 of 5Prev postUse your ← → (arrows) to browse With loaded classes coming in free agency and the draft, these five NFL teams are lined up to get their running back of the future in 2021. There is no more disposable position in today’s NFL than the running back position. Teams generally don’t use an old school-style workhorse, and if they do it’s only for a short time before they consider moving on from someone and certainly it’s before said back is in line to get paid handsomely. Running backs have to maximize their window, which makes it risky (and in some ways admirable) when top college players at the position stay in school all four years. Clemson’s Travis...

Seeing your favorite NFL team win a Super Bowl must be one of the greatest feelings in the world. I wouldn’t know because my favorite team decided to blow a 28-3 lead back in Houston a few years ago.

They badly need him to come through in 2020.With a shortened 2020 MLB season, it will be critical for the stars on contending teams to get off to a fast start, as they won’t have 162 games to get things going, but only 60. There are few players that it’s hard to imagine this applying to more than Paul Goldschmidt of the St. Louis Cardinals. Before the 2019 season, the Cardinals traded for Goldschmidt to anchor both first base and their offense. The veteran right-handed hitter was coming off six straight seasons of at least...

    TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals have signed tight end Dylan Cantrell to a one-year deal.

    Arizona Cardinals' newly acquired wide receiver, DeAndre Hopkins, has made a bold statement. Hopkins, who was traded from the Houston Texans to the Cardinals earlier in the offseason, said that he is the best wide receiver in the league, and if he had a legitimate starting quarterback for most of his career -- like other top wide receivers have had -- he believes his numbers would have blown them out of water. “I definitely think I’m the best,” Hopkins said Thursday on ESPN. “I know I’m the best.” CHIEFS, PATRICK MAHOMES NEGOTIATING DEAL 'UNLIKE ANY OTHER', REPORT SAYS Hopkins has earned three straight first-team All-Pro nods, but he’s never led the NFL in receptions or yards, and he said that’s because...
