St Louis Cardinals: will the Pirates catch them?

With only 10 games remaining in the season for the St. Louis Cardinals, they hold a 2.5 game lead over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Is that a substantial enough lead, or will the Pirates catch the Redbirds? The Cardinals have split the first 2 games with the Brewers, and have Shelby Miller opposing Kyle Lohse tonight.

A Shining Knight, Riding To The Rescue

In the poster and press release for the current Instagram outing by the Cardinals, #BirdToTheFuture, the pitching ace for the Redbirds is billed as “Sir Adam Wainwright “.  While I’ve had a chance to see the full outing and have seen why that’s the case (it’s pretty humorous), the real reason that he should have the title is because, [...]

Adam Wainwright’s complete game shutout out-duels Mike Fiers as Cardinals edge Brewers 2-0

Adam Wainwright took the hill Wednesday night at Busch Stadium following a Cardinals’ loss. That usually means good news for St Louis. It would be again tonight. Yeah, but what about Brewers’ starter Mike Fiers? Fiers, making his first start after hitting Giancarlo Stanton in the head, would bounce back sharp against the Cardinals as the Brewers looked to gain more ground in...

Gerardo Parra gives ball to kid seated next to guy who interfered with catch (video)

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Gerardo Parra had every right to be peeved with at least one St. Louis Cardinals fan during Tuesday’s game at Busch Stadium. Instead, he took the high road, demonstrated a lot of class and even went above and beyond to make nice. While chasing down a Chris Carpenter pop-up that drifted into […] The post Gerardo Parra gives ball to kid seated next...

Trevor Rosenthal Wasn’t Popular On Twitter Last Night

What type of athlete would you be? Would you log on to Twitter and read your @ replies? Or just ignore them all together? I’d like to think I could ignore them, but I couldn’t. I’d probably even search for my own name and reply to people that didn’t even @ me. I’m not proud of it. But let’s get real, Twitter’s like touching a injury… it hurts more when you do it,...

St Louis Cardinals regain momentum, sweep Rockies

After a nearly destructive three game stretch against the Reds threatened to sap their momentum, the Cardinals handled the dismal Colorado Rockies this weekend, handing them a three-game sweep in St. Louis.

Why Push Michael Wacha?

Look, I may not be a medical expert or a certified trainer or anything, but I can still recognize a bad decision from afar. Deep inside the walls of Busch Stadium, Michael Wacha ‘s 2014 prospects hang in the balance and within the center of a few people’s thoughts and decision making. Mike Matheny , John Mozeliak, trainers, a [...]

Why The Cardinals Can’t Have Nice Things

You wouldn’t believe it by scrolling through the CD headlines the past couple of weeks… but I think we can all admit that ‘this’ was coming a bit to easy for the 2014 Cardinals. Not that they weren’t capable of winning and winning consistantly – they obviously are. But the fact that we all expected a complete dogfight all of September and instead were in the middle of...

St Louis Cardinals: Kolten Wong’s Rookie of the Year chances

There is no doubting Kolten Wong’s emergence as the Cardinals’ everyday second baseman. Despite getting sent back to AAA in April and dealing with an injury in June, he has been the obvious choice over Mark Ellis for the Cardinals to start every day. The Cardinals will rely on his bat to spark the bottom of the lineup through the playoff race. However, with his improved place...

Cards fan irate over sexual commercial during games

A middle-aged St. Louis Cardinals fan wrote a letter to the editor at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch to bemoan the fact that a decent, God-fearing and church-going  fan can’t tune into a broadcast of a baseball game without being bombarded by “pornographic” commercials featuring scantily clad women chowing down on meaty hamburgers. It’s bad enough […] The post Cardinals fan...
