Just got back from church, Andrew Haynes. And watched Bryce Harper turn the wrong way on a line drive hit by Shelby Miller, turning an out into a double. This allowed Peter Bourjos, running on the play with two outs, to score easily. Stephen Strasburg, who threw the pitch, stared grimly out into left field for a few seconds before returning to the mound. Cards lead 2-0, despite 9 K's through five for Strasburg. Only you and Jeffrey Moore can appreciate the ironic depths of my frustration here.

Suppose the following: Your team has to use a platoon at a position next year. You have your choice of any 2 platoon partners at a position - but you can't choose someone who was a full-time starter in 2013 (i.e., no Miguel Cabrera against righties and, well, Miguel Cabrera against lefties.) - I kid, I kid. The Kansas City Royals are likely to go with one such platoon at third base this year with Mike Moustakas and Danny Valencia. They could very well go with another one in CF having Lorenzo Cain and Jarrod Dyson. The Cardinals could very well go with one at second base with Kolten Wong and Mark Ellis or in center field with Jon Jay and Peter Bourjos. What would the ideal platoon partners have been at each position in 2013? At Catcher, six names popped out at me. Dioner Navarro, Yan Gomes, Geovany Soto, John Jaso, Wilson Ramos, and Derek Norris all played in less than 100 games last year. They all, also, had a higher than league average batting line overall. While Dioner Navarro may have the best line aga ...
The Cardinals have improved in several areas without sacrificing prospects or draft picks while the rest of the division largely stood pat in terms of acquisitions, says Bernie Miklasz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, but that does not mean the club has only smooth sailing ahead. While the organization dealt with injuries impressively last year, it is no sure thing to do so again, and players like Peter Bourjos and Allen Craig have some injury baggage. Whether the team can get a repeat performance from Matt Carpenter, and get production from an all-new middle infield (Jhonny Peralta, Kolten Wong, and Mark Ellis) are also all open questions.
Don’t get me wrong, I think having Jon Jay around is what makes relying on Peter Bourjos possible.
Detroit Tigers have avoided arbitration with RHP Max Scherzer. The deal is worth $15.5 million dollars. Scherzer went 21-3 with a 2.90 ERA in 32 starts with the Tigers in 2013 while winning the AL Cy Young Award. Miami Marlins have avoided arbitration with outfielder Giancarlo Stanton. Stanton will make $6.5 million dollars next year. Stanton hit .249 (106-425) with 24 home runs & 62 RBI in 116 games with the Marlins in 2013. Baltimore Orioles & first baseman Chris Davis have avoided arbitration. Davis is set to make $10.35 million dollars next season. Davis hit .286 (167-584) with 53 home runs & 138 RBI in 160 games with the Orioles in 2013. Los Angeles Angels & RHP Fernando Salas have avoided arbitration.

Joe Sheehan on CARDS Off Season *St. Louis Cardinals* *Added:* SS Jhonny Peralta, CF Peter Bourjos, 2B Mark Ellis *Lost:* 3B David Freese, RHRP Fernando Salas *Still Need:* A better backup catcher? This is the most complete roster in MLB right now. John Mozeliak took the second-best team in baseball, one already likely to improve just based on strong internal options, and made it better with a couple of surgical strikes. The Cardinals win their trade with the Angels in a landslide, getting the best player in the deal at a low point in his value and using him to patch one of the biggest deficits -- center-field defense -- of the 2013 squad. I've been touting Bourjos for so long that I readily admit you might not take me seriously, but when healthy and allowed to play he will be one of the best defensive outfielders in the game. Bourjos did suffer a hamstring injury in April, but what wrecked his season was a broken right wrist suffered in June when he was hit by a pitch. Surgery to fix the problem was deem ...
Peter Bourjos, Shane Robinson, Kolton Wong for speed. Defense is pretty good considering Bourjos in center/solid infield.
Angels stepped up huge...signed stuff from Mike Trout, Mark Trumbo, and Peter Bourjos for the fundraiser and more coming from them.
O's fans, something to consider. This is a list of players with whom we don't have to deal either at all, or at least less than 18 times next year: Robinson Cano, J.P. Arencibia, Mark Trumbo, Peter Bourjos, Curtis Granderson, Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Dan Haren, Josh Johnson, Brett Anderson, Doug Fister, the downside of Scott Feldman, and possibly David Price. Against having to deal with Carlos Beltran, Brian McCann, A.J. Pierzynski and possibly Edward Mujica if he stays healthy.

FEATURED BLOG POST: Jhonny Peralta, Peter Bourjos, and the St. Louis Cardinals’ new worst-case scenarios
ANAHEIM -- Shortly after news broke that the Angels traded Peter Bourjos to the Cardinals for David Freese, Albert Pujols shot a welcoming text message to the former teammate he would soon reunite with. Freese's response: Remember what we did last time we played with each other? Let's go try to do that again. What Freese and Pujols did was star on the Cardinals team that beat the Rangers -- with Josh Hamilton and C.J. Wilson, no less -- to win it all in 2011. Freese was a World Series hero then, following an epic performance with a 2012 season in which he batted .293, hit 20 homers, drove in 79 runs and established himself as one of the best up-and-coming third basemen in baseball. Then his bat went south, his defense took a hit, and now he'll look to bounce back on an Angels team that needs help at third base and has missed the playoffs four straight years. "It was kind of a frustrating year," Freese said, "but I learned a lot, and to be honest, I have a huge chip on my shoulder." On Friday morning, the ...
