Cardinals Acquire Mujica for Former No. 1 Pick

Sports

August 1st, 2012 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals acquired bullpen help at the trade deadline, getting right-hander Edward Mujica from the Miami Marlins for 2010 first-round draft pick Zack Cox. The 28-year-old Mujica is 0-3 with a 4.38 ERA and two saves in 41 games and has held right-handed hitters to a .211 average. Last year he was 9-6 with a 2.96 ERA.

“We think he’s going to be a nice fit,” Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said before Tuesday night’s game at Colorado. “He’s going to bring some experience and he’s going to be able to help out some of our young pitchers. He’s got a good arm and a good split. That split really works well for right-handed and left-handed hitters. He’s coming off a strong year last year. He just has that reputation as being a guy who can come in and fill a few different roles for you at the back end of your bullpen. So, he’s an exciting pickup for us and everybody is anxious for him to get here.”

More than likely, Mujica will be used in the seventh or eighth inning as a setup man. “That wouldn’t be anything new for him,” Matheny said. “That’s what he’s been doing. He’s had quite a few holds in his career. He knows how to pitch with a lead.” The 23-year-old Cox was batting .254 with nine homers and 30 RBIs at Triple-A Memphis. He was the 25th overall pick in the 2010 amateur draft out of Arkansas and jumped from Class A Palm Beach to Double-A Springfield last season.

The Cardinals will announce a corresponding roster move after Mujica joins his new team in Colorado. Matheny said Mujica was expected to arrive in time for Wednesday night’s game against the Rockies.

Holliday has 4 RBIs to Lead Cardinals Past Rockies

Sports

August 1st, 2012 by Ric Hanson

DENVER (AP) — Matt Holliday homered, doubled and drove in four runs, and Kyle Lohse worked through an erratic outing to win his fifth consecutive decision and lift the St. Louis Cardinals over the Colorado Rockies 11-6 on Tuesday night. Carlos Beltran and David Freese also homered and Allen Craig went 3-for-3 with two walks and three RBIs to help the Cardinals rebound from successive losses. The Rockies dropped to 0-4 on their homestand and have lost seven of eight overall. Lohse (11-2), who also beat the Rockies three weeks ago in St. Louis, gave up nine hits and five runs in six innings, breaking a string of 10 consecutive quality starts. He struck out five and walked two.

Big Ten Heads into Unusual Season with PSU, OSU

Sports

July 31st, 2012 by Ric Hanson

With Ohio State and Penn State both barred from the postseason, there are only four teams in the Big Ten Leaders Division competing for a spot in the league championship game. Wisconsin and running back Montee Ball are the heavy favorites as Michigan State moves on without quarterback Kirk Cousins. Minnesota, Illinois, Iowa, Northwestern, Indiana and Purdue all hope to find their footing following disappointing finishes a year ago. Nebraska and running back Rex Burkhead look to build on their first season in the Big Ten. Urban Meyer will focus on making the Buckeyes a force again after a 6-7. And Penn State coach Bill O’Brien is simply trying to keep Penn State afloat after rippling NCAA sanctions from the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal.

Chiefs hoping Poe gamble pays off

Sports

July 30th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) – If Dontari Poe bombs out, general manager Scott Pioli and coach Romeo Crennel could wind up wearing the biggest dunce caps in Kansas City. The Chiefs spent the overall No. 11 draft pick on an unproven kid who was merely second-team all-league in Conference USA. If the hulking nose tackle rises to stardom, however, the Chiefs could have their finest defense since Marty Schottenheimer’s brawny squads of the mid-1990s. Poe and his new bosses are in the spotlight as the Chiefs begin their first full week of training camp.
