The Detroit Tigers and Philadelphia Phillies probably don't have anything to worry about, but Texas Rangers and possibly the Milwaukee Brewers may. Both wild card races could get interesting between the Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays, as well as the Atlanta Braves and St. Louis Cardinals, respectively. GIVE IT A LISTEN!

Adam Wainwright suffers an elbow injury

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Athletes, Injuries, MLB, News,

Adam Wainwright suffered an elbow injury and may be out the 2011 seasonThe St. Louis Cardinals suffered a big blow to their success when it was reported that pitcher Adam Wainwright has a possible serious elbow injury and could miss the entire 2011 season. Saying that the loss of Wainwright is damaging to the Cardinals is an understatement as he's won 39 games the past two seasons, including 20 games in 2010, finishing with a 2.42 ERA and 213 strikeouts, as well as second in the voting for National League Cy Young, which Roy Halladay of the Philadelphia Phillies won. Wainwright is in the middle of his prime at 29-years-old, so losing a season hurts if it comes to that. However, he's still young enough to recover from elbow surgery, most likely Tommy John surgery if he needs to go under the knife. He's in the middle of getting a second opinion before surgery becomes a tangible option.

Albert Pujols reports to St. Louis Cardinals camp without a contract

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Athletes, Front Office, MLB, News,

Albert Pujols reports to St. Louis Cardinals camp without a contractAlbert Pujols, arguably the best overall player in baseball today, did not come to a contract agreement with the St. Louis Cardinals by the self-imposed deadline of Wednesday, February 16th. The reason Pujols designated a deadline was to not cause any distraction during the season for the team. However, considering all the things that Pujols can do and what he's done for the organization, how can his pending free agency after the 2011 not cause any degree of distraction? The usual big money teams, New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox, already have first baseman, but will undoubtedly have some interest should Pujols hit the market. Other interested teams include the Los Angeles Angels, Texas Rangers, and N.L. Central rivals, the Chicago Cubs.

Tony LaRussa accuses MLBPA of putting pressure on Albert Pujols

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Athletes, Front Office, MLB, News,

Tony LaRussa and Albert PujolsSt. Louis Cardinals manager, Tony LaRussa, is accusing the Major League Baseball Players Association of putting pressure on free agent-to-be Albert Pujols to sign for the richest contract in baseball history. Pujols is arguably the best player in baseball and it's imperative for the MLBPA that he is paid that way in order to establish and keep a precedent - the best players get the most money. If Pujols should settle for anything less than Alex Rodriguez's benchmark contract of $27.5 per for 10 years, it could set the stage for owners to pay below-market value for players. This all said, it's ultimately up to Pujols as to where he plays. He's in the proverbial driver's seat and despite the usual group of high revenue teams (New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox) already having first basemen, Pujols commands a lot of attention.

Albert Pujols sets spring training as deadline to settle contract situation

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Athletes, Front Office, MLB, News,

Albert Pujols deadline for contract negotiations on February 16thAlbert Pujols' current contract will end after this 2011 season and he is going to make bank no matter where he goes. Naturally, the St. Louis Cardinals would like to keep, arguably, the greatest baseball player of his generation. Pujols is that rare player that can hit for power, average, and draw walks. Pujols has made it know that he won't talk about a contract extension once spring training starts, so the Cardinals have between now and February 16th to agree on an extension. One thing for sure is that it will cost alot for Pujols to play after next season.

Albert Pujols sets spring training deadline

Albert Pujols, arguably the best player in baseball, has given the St. Louis Cardinals a deadline of spring training in order to get his contract situation settled. Pujols will be playing in his final contract year with the Cardinals when the 2011 MLB season begins. Reportedly, Pujols will test free agency should the extension not happen by spring training, but the Cardinals would be crazy not to. However, if it happens, Pujols would be in high demand as he is still only 30 years old and a perennial Triple Crown threat.

Blake Hawksworth climbing from the depth charts

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

Blake HawksworthBlake Hawksworth’s name is not one you should know. Yet. The 27-year-old right-handed pitcher is throwing from the number four spot in the St. Louis Cardinals’ rotation, and while his season isn’t going as wonderfully as he may have hoped, to be where he is now is a testament to his character. His career has been a roller coaster ride with glowing scouting reports and devastating injuries. As soon as he settles down and finds some direction, he may wind up as one of the best hurlers in baseball.
