The team announced Tuesday that the veteran pitcher is still dealing with effects of previous injury that sidelined him for most of 2012. Mercy doctors will likely be involved in evaluating what happens next.
The Mercy partnership with the St. Louis Cardinals as the team's official medical provider will get a high-profile start. The team announced Tuesday that Chris Carpenter, sidelined for most of the 2012 with thoracic outlet syndrome, will likely not pitch in 2013 after having trouble with offseason workouts. In a news conference broadcast on local media outlets, Cardinals VP and General Manager John Mozeliak announced that Carpenter would "utlize the Mercy network" among others in finding a way forward, after the player notified the team Friday that he was unable to throw at a high velocity after otherwise having had "a normal offseason," according to Mozeliak. Mozeliak said there were issues with numbness and stingers in his shoulder and …

The health care provider is also nearing an announcement of a location for a stand alone sports medicine center.
The St. Louis Cardinals and Mercy health care unveiled a partnership Tuesday making the Chesterfield-based firm the major league baseball team's "official Medical Provider." It won't preclude a player from seeking out their own treatment elsewhere so if a pitcher wants a second or third opinion, or to have surgery performed elsewhere by the likes of a Dr. James Andrews, based in Alabama, they will continue to have that option. But the arrangement gives the team, minor league squads and employees on the business side of the organization, access to Mercy doctors, tapping into a wider umbrella of care. Mercy doctors already serve as the team physicians for the Cardinals' Double-A team in Springfield. "You hear about things making headlines …

Everyone's got a story about the St. Louis Cardinals' legend, right? Musial died Saturday.
Stan "The Man" Musial, the St. Louis Cardinals legend who was widely considered "the greatest Cardinal," died on Saturday. That's the news that broke on Saturday. Today, we're interested in your stories about the pitcher-cum-outfielder who played for the Redbirds from 1941 to 1963. As a relatively newcomer to St. Louis (only here 11 years!) I can't say I have a lot of memories of Musial beyond meeting countless compatriots at the Musial statue at the last two versions of Busch Stadium. How about you? What do you remember about Musial? Your parents' memories? Yours?

The St. Louis Cardinal icon and baseball hall of fame outfielder passed away Saturday night.
Stan Musial, a giant in the St. Louis community and the baseball world for more than half a century, died Saturday at his home in Ladue. "Stan the Man passed peacefully at home at 5:45 pm tonight of natural causes. Life will never be the same without baseball's perfect knight," his grandson, Brian Musial Schwarze said via Twitter Saturday evening. Musial was 92 and had been in poor health in recent years. Musial, who entered baseball's Hall of Fame in 1969, played 22 years for the St. Louis Cardinals, amassing 3,630 hits and 24 All-Star Game appearances in a career full of superlatives. Said the Cardinals in posting word of Musial's death: Musial, father of three daughters and a son, was unpretentious, untroubled, friendly and folksy. The…

Eric Bogard was accused of shining a laser pointer at the field of play during an August St. Louis Cardinals game at Busch Stadium.
Just over four months after he was criminally charged in connection with aiming a laser pointer onto the field of play at Busch Stadium, a student at Ladue Horton Watkins High School has reportedly been sentenced in connection with the incident that also led to the resignation of a Mercy Health executive. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Eric Bogard, of Creve Coeur, entered a guilty plea December 14 to a count of disturbing the peace at an athletic event and was sentenced by a St. Louis city municipal court judge to six months probation, 20 hours of community service and ordered to pay the St. Louis Cardinals $500 in costs. The paper reports that the actual charge tied to the use of lasers was dropped. On August 6, Cardinals …

The Giants beat the Cardinals 9-0 in Game 7 to end the Redbirds' 2012 season.
There will be no World Series in St. Louis this season. There will be no parade down Market Street, no 12th world championship and no rematch of the 2006 Fall Classic. Monday night in San Francisco the Cardinals hopes of a repeat of 2011 were ended at the hands of the Giants. Just like in 1996, the Cardinals, with a new manager, had a 3-1 lead in the National League Championship series. And, just like in '96, the Cards failed to get win No. 4, losing in Game 7 in a blowout. The Cardinals were done in by a series of miscues and the inability to get a big basehit. But, credit the San Francisco, the Giants had to play perfect to come back and did just that. The loss in California closes the book on an interesting season for the Cardinals…
