  1. Planning a Boston bounce-back in 2013

    Christina Kahrl

    So, how about that AL East? We know the Blue Jays have been busy, and the Yankees will be. The Rays can't be counted out and the Orioles just proved nothing's certain. What's a fading former contender like the Boston Red Sox to do? It would be eas...

  2. Cardinals' unhappy formula for failure

    Christina Kahrl

    If there's one takeaway where the defending world champs are concerned, it's this: Even wounded, these Cardinals could still fly. Most teams, you scratch a No. 1 starter, a leadoff man and a cleanup hitter, and you might expect them to be long since ...

  3. Is the stretch Freese's time of year?

    Christina Kahrl

    Every season has its bright lights, new and old alike. Take the question of whose star burns brightest at the hot corner in the National League, right now. David Wright might be the obvious answer for best ballplayer at third base, but playing for th...

  4. Move of the Day: The Big Puma DL'd

    Christina Kahrl

    The Cardinals didn't even have Lance Berkman back for a full week's worth of games -- he started in just five of seven games -- before a troubling knee injury forced him back to the DL. Wasn't Berkman supposed to stay healthier after moving back to f...

  5. Clearing the bases: Craig, Parker, Lowrie

    Christina Kahrl

    First base: That's where Allen Craig was playing for the Cardinals on Tuesday night, not just giving the Birds back the ninth bat they've missed, but more importantly giving them an immediate substitute for the still-injured Lance Berkman. Much like ...

  6. Position production: At the corners

    Christina Kahrl

    Are first basemen doing more to put runs on the board today than they did 10 years ago? How about 25 years ago? How do you make broad comparisons like this? With any question like this you can get hung up on the differences between eras. Run-scori...

  7. Beltran renews a La Russa tradition

    Christina Kahrl

    You might have thought we were about to run out of reasons to weep for the Cardinals, World Series win or no. After all, Jeff Luhnow scrammed to Houston to reboot the Astros after their latest failure to launch, and Allen Craig's going to miss the mo...

  8. Albert's back!

    Christina Kahrl

    There are all sorts of reasons to be in wonder of Albert Pujols' seemingly miraculous recovery from a broken wrist weeks ahead of schedule. That said, it was also an unusual injury since it was the product of a collision on the basepaths and because ...

  9. Who are the real 'RBI guys?'

    Christina Kahrl

    In the age of new metrics for player performance, the RBI is mired in tough times. The snarkier analysts will chuck it out entirely as an unfortunate statistical footnote. It isn't something you'd go to WAR for, after all, not when the analysis commu...

  10. The all-time best switch-hitters

    Christina Kahrl

    So Lance Berkman's back in action and ripping pitchers like it was 2001 or 2006, his best seasons in what has already been an outstanding career. Where does this put him among the game's best switch-hitters of all time? It may have snuck up on you...
