2016 Cardinals News Thread

Postby R27 » Wed Apr 06, 2016 1:37 pm

This thread is meant for the collection of smaller stories that don't necessarily require a full thread themselves. Something like "Gonzales is headed for a second opinion on his elbow" would probably warrant it's own thread. Something like "Wainwright and Holliday caught butterflies in the outfield today at PNC Park" would probably be better in here.

We can always merge or split topics off if we need to if something becomes a bigger story, like if those butterflies were carriers for Zika or Ebola and they're both out for the rest of the year because of it.

Which if it happened, wouldn't be as much of a shocker to us as it probably should be. :lol:

Only because we didn't have a thread for the injury and hopefully this is about the last we hear about it until he's back.

Mozeliak said that Ruben Tejada is headed to Springfield to begin a rehab stint. If all goes well he is expected to be back by Sunday.

I think I just discovered why Matheny's lineups never seem to change. In an article at STLtoday, Matheny was asked about using 15 lineups in 15 games so far this season.

“I’d rather have eight names and post (the same lineup) up there every day.”

Why Mike, why?

Oh how the times have changed. We railed for years about TLR's schizophrenic lineups. I remember how refreshing we thought it was when MM posted the same lineup during the first two games of 2012.

Carlos Martinez is the object of a civil lawsuit accusing the 24-year-old of negligent transmission of a sexual transmitted disease. The lawsuit, filed in Miami by an alleged former paramour, seeks more than $1.5 million in damages. According to TMZ, the woman states in the lawsuit she began to feel sick a few days after resuming an on-again, off-again sexual relationship with Martinez last December — and later tested positive for multiple, non-life-threatening STDs. Martinez “swore to God that he was not infected with any sexually transmitted disease” before they hooked up, the lawsuit claims.

Could Martinez not be tested to see if he has any issues? Has he been prescribed any meds? I mean, this stuff doesn't go away by itself.... 8-)

Gear for the dad who is a passionate Cardinals fan, but also in a street gang with the color blue in it.

I get selling gear in pink because there are people like my Mom who would love to have pink Cardinals gear because that's her favorite color. But I can't say I've ever experienced someone going, "Man, you know, I'd buy a Cardinals jersey, but I'd really like it to be in blue."

Some of this gear, I can't believe they sell any meaningful amount of it.

Though maybe some UNC Tarheels fan is a Cardinals fan too and would love a uniform in what looks to be Carolina blue. But I'd imagine that's a small cross-section of the marketplace.

NOT SO FAST ............. Maness Moved To DL - Memphis Demotion Cancelled

Pitcher Seth Maness recently was headed for Memphis on an option, which Maness said he fully deserved. That’s when he and his agent decided he get a look-see from the Cardinals’ doctors.

“Seth had never reported any medical issues with us,” Mozeliak said. Manager Mike Matheny had asked Maness that same question and was told there was none.

“Obviously, the decision to option was strictly on performance (0-1, 6.39 earned-run average),” Mozeliak said. “Then, after that happened, he indicated he would like to be reviewed by our medical staff. So we flew him back here.”

Maness underwent an MRI and then met with Dr. Timothy Farley, the team orthopedist. There was an elbow strain found and the prescription was rest, allowing the elbow to “quiet down,” said Mozeliak, who changed Maness’ status to disabled.

LOLWUT?

Only after being optioned did you decide you should be checked out by a doctor? Nothing else clued you in like, oh, a 6.39 ERA?
