Looking Ahead To The Last 12 Games

Business handled. The Rockies were terrible when they arrived in St. Louis. They depart the gateway to the west dragging 3 more losses in tow. The Cardinals now stand at 83-67 for the season, 3.5 games ahead of the Pirates and 5 games in front of the Brewers with an off-day on Monday before playing 12 straight to close out the season. Their magic number stands at 10. In the race...

Sweeping Some of That Magic Away

After the struggles against Cincinnati, it was good to see the Cardinals come home and take care of business against one of the worst teams in the league.  The sweep against Colorado was pretty necessary as well, since Pittsburgh just dropped one this weekend.  With two weeks to go in the season (really?  Where did 2014 [...]

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. Strong pitching performances from two familiar faces (Shelby Miller and Adam Wainwright) and a not-so-familiar one (Marco Gonzales) allowed the Redbirds to coast and finish the...

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 [...]

Another impressive start by Shelby Miller leads Cardinals to hang on in 5-4 win over Rockies

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...

Analyzing Sam Tuivailala’s Debut

The Cardinals are no strangers to converting strong-armed position players to the mound when their bats can’t keep up with their arms. The most storied case, of course, is Jason Motte. Motte went from a 19th-round catcher with a cannon arm with a career .188 batting average to dominant closer who ended the 2011 World Series. David Carpenter is another former catcher from the Cardinals’...

St. Louis Cardinals End of Season Prospect Profile: Carson Kelly, C

Cardinals’ fans often wonder about who Yadier Molina will pass the torch to as his career winds down.  That isn’t happening anytime soon, meaning his heir apparent, Carson Kelly, has plenty of time to learn, train, and develop in the minors.  Kelly was a 2012 2nd round pick out of high school and opted to sign with the Cardinals, passing on a baseball scholarship to Oregon...

St Louis Cardinals’ surge makes them NL favorites

Adam Wainwright is back. At least, he was Sunday afternoon. The Cardinals’ ace was fantastic against the Brewers, going more than 7 innings for the first time since July 2nd, notching his third complete game of the season. Waino gave up 7 hits with just one walk and one run. His three strikeouts were low, but there’s no denying it was Wainwright’s best start since July, after...

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...
