The Cardinals enter the offseason with a full 40-man roster. While the deadline to finalize the 40-man is still a month away, it’s the first important date on the offseason calendar, and 40-man decisions will have implications throughout the offseason. The Cardinals ended the season with a full 40-man roster, but four players from the [...]

Setting the Offseason Stage

Usually John Mozeliak and crew have a season-ending press conference a couple of days after the season, well, ends.  They talk about the season and the focus for the winter, what moves they feel they need to make and things they feel are a priority.  When the first few days of October this year came [...]

With the regular season behind us, it’s time to start taking a look back at some of the aspects of the 2018 season.  One of the hallmarks of this team was their ability to pull a game out in their last at bat.  The Cardinals registered 11 wins in the walk-off fashion but even though [...]

The Next Phase.

I was thinking about how the Cardinals season had ended, and pondering one of those dreary end of the season memorials, but in reality, the season isn’t over, it’s simply moved on to the next phase. Personally, I usually don’t watch the playoffs unless the Cardinals are in them. To me it’s like rubbing salt [...]

Starting in 2015, every year as the regular season ends we take a little time to look at our Cardinal community.  As the Cardinals have started heading home and planning their winter activities, we get a chance to celebrate those that we spend almost as much time with during the season, the folks on Twitter.  [...]

Completing the Fall

When Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wanted to kill off his most famous creation, he had Sherlock Holmes and his arch-enemy Professor Moriarty meet at Reichenbach Falls in Switzerland.  There the two locked in battle before they careened over the edge to (seemingly) their deaths.  (Proving that even in the late 1800s death wasn’t that final [...]

Unsurprisingly, a Keith Olbermann tweet decidedly not intended to heap praise upon Harrison Bader nearly triggered a full-fledged virtual riot of the thin-skinned BFiB with poor critical reading skills.  Olbermann came across as an opportunistic bully selectively picking on someone he almost certainly knows is a defensive standout.  After all, we can be reasonably sure [...]
