Cardinals

Jeff Keppinger's a valued commodity—which is scary

Three teams are all bidding for... Jeff Keppinger. The St. Louis Cardinals could find infield depth at a premium this offseason.

Where does Kyle Lohse go from here?

Kyle Lohse turned down the St. Louis Cardinals' qualifying offer, as expected, ending a decidedly unexpected two-year term as their ace. What's he due in free agency?

Hiroyuki Nakajima pursued... by A's, of course

Kyle Lohse has been an offseason punching bag, but Anibal Sanchez's recent contract demands suggest he might not be as overpriced as we thought.
