Both St. Louis & Los Angeles audiences tuned out the Rams’ return

St. Louis is understandably bitter about the way the Rams franchise left for Los Angeles. Los Angeles, meanwhile, is full of Los Angeles sports fans. When the Rams played their first game since returning to the once-again home of L.A., both fanbases did what you’d expect them to do. Not care.

Friends In Low (and High) Places

There was a train of thought, completely sound, that the Cardinals had to sweep the Rockies to keep their wild card chances legitimate.  They weren’t quite able to do that (sweeps are hard, especially for this team who hasn’t swept a three game series since the four-gamer against the Padres in mid-July and again failed [...]

With every game crucial for the St. Louis Cardinals’ fight for a wild card berth, a Sunday ninth-inning baserunning blunder by catcher Yadier Molina led to a tight late-game relief situation on Monday.

As the Cardinals struggle to make the playoffs this year and the lynch mob gets ready to hang Mike Matheny should we fall short, I thought it might be time for some perspective, good or bad.

Matt Holliday’s Absence Not Inconsequential for St. Louis

We don’t talk much about Matt Holliday these days. It’s been awhile since he was one of the best players in baseball. Probably the last time you could have honestly made that claim was in 2014, when his 132 wRC+ was 28th-best in the game. However, with the news that Holliday has probably succumbed to his thumb injury for the rest of the season, I thought we would take a minute...

St. Louis Cardinals: The Jedd Gyorko trade has been a steal

Last December the St. Louis Cardinals traded outfielder Jon Jay for infielder Jedd Gyorko. Originally, Gyorko was supposed to be a backup to Kolten Wong and get starts against left handed pitchers.
