Cardinals: Easy to thrill yet hard to trust

If the St. Louis Cardinals lose to the Oakland Athletics, currently 55-72,  tonight I will punch something. It’s that simple. Then again, why should I be surprised? This is a maddening group of players who have shown little ability to improve. Don’t expect them to change. Let’s recap. The Cards have hit 181 home runs, 240 doubles, and slugged .451 this season. They have three...

The Cardinals Are Really Going To Have A Losing Home Record In 2016?

I didn’t think they were really going to do it. Trying to make the playoffs with a losing record at home is like trying to use Ryan Lochte as reference on your resume – you may still get the job, sure, but it’s probably not helping your case. Too soon? But here we are. August 26th. Heading into the last month of the season. And the Cardinals are 29-35 in St. Louis after getting...

Cardinals: Wild Carlos For Wild Card?

Well Cards fans, it’s almost that time of year again. Yeah, yeah…it’s still August – and apparently to some fans, it’s still “early”. Although, when you’re a Cardinals fan, the topic of postseason is always necessary. Now that the Cardinals have pretty much landed and secured a Wild Card spot (I have no idea how they pulled that off), it’s time to talk about who...

St. Louis Cardinals: Why Brandon Moss deserves to stay past 2016

When you think of the reason the St. Louis Cardinals are in playoff contention, who comes to your mind? Matt Carpenter? Yadier Molina? Carlos Martinez? How about Brandon Moss? When the Cardinals made the trade to acquire Moss from the Cleveland Indians many were upset. Moss was seen as nothing more than a more powerful Matt Adams who was a bad return for who he was traded for. Rob...

Rosenthal: The Beginning of the End of Another Closer?

Friends, it should be common knowledge by now that I don’t care much for the St. Louis Cardinals. I’ve recognized their greatness over the years, sure. That doesn’t mean I’ve enjoyed it. Living in Milwaukee my whole life, all the while loving a bad baseball team, the Cardinals have only made my fandom more agonizing. Then 2011 happened, and the feeling of emptiness was overwhelming...
