Cardinals' Hitters Must Begin To Step Up

The Cardinals can’t replace their injured all-in-one catcher, Yadier Molina. But they can do a reasonably good job of compensating for his absence, and this has little to do with the performance of their backup catchers.

For the first time since April 16th, when he strained a hamstring trying to beat out an infield hit, Joe Kelly will be back on the mound for the St. Louis Cardinals as the right-hander has been activated from the disabled list and starts tonight against Milwaukee. Kelly had a league-leading 0.59 ERA at the time of his injury and in his last two rehab starts at Memphis allowed just one run in 8.1 innings pitched. He is expected to be on a 90-95 pitch count this evening.

Liking Mike Matheny's Latest Lineup

Good afternoon to the BFIB ...

Cardinals Starting Lineup 7-9-14


Allen Craig is back in the Cardinals lineup for Wednesday's game against the Pittsburgh Pirates, but for the first time all season he's in the bottom third of it.
Cardinal Beat

As Allen Craig continues to search for answers at the plate, Mike Matheny searches for the right lineup formula.
KMOV

With walk-off wins in the first two games of the series, the Cardinals have pulled to within three games of first-place Milwaukee in the National League Central. It’s the closest the Cardinals have been to the Brewers in May. The club can further shrink (possibly erase?) that division lead in the five days leading up to the All-Star break. Two more games remain against the Pirates before a big weekend series in Milwaukee.

Kolten Wong Getting Overlooked Among Those Who Can Turn Around Offense

Anywhere you look people are saying the Cardinals are in need of offense when it comes to the July 31st trade deadline. And that’s about right. The Redbirds are in fact still among the bottom in baseball in runs scored.

Could Cardinals Swing Jake Peavy-Allen Craig Swap?

The Cardinals obviously would not trade six years of control over Randal Grichuk or Stephen Piscotty for a potential free agent such as Peavy. But perhaps the teams could expand the deal or swap other players. For example, as bad as Allen Craig has looked for the Cardinals, his right-handed bat might interest the Red Sox in a larger trade.

One more week remains before the All-Star break, and the week sets up to be an important one for a Cardinals team that continues to tread water. First up are four games against the Pirates, who arrived in St. Louis as the NL Central’s second place team. The Cardinals have dropped to third for the first time since the second week of the season.

Mike Matheny Must Make Better Use Of Personnel

The Cardinals enter the week with a 47-42 record, a winning percentage of .528. They should be better than that. According to the adjusted projected record at Baseball Prospectus that factors in run differential and quality of opponents played so far, the Cardinals should be 50-39, for a winning percentage of .559.

Jaime Garcia Likely To Have Surgery; Extra Bases

It has been apparent for a while that oft-injured lefthander Jaime Garcia, residing on the 15-day disabled list, probably wouldn’t pitch again for the Cardinals this season. Now he is primed for an operation this week to alleviate a nerve issue, much like the one that hastened the end of staff ace Chris Carpenter’s career last year. And there is doubt whether Garcia, still signed through next year for $9.25 million, ever will pitch for the Cardinals again.
