We got fairly serious and contemplative this morning, so let's break that up with something more in line with what this blog usually provides: questions and answers with other bloggers!  Scott Andes from LAdodgerreport, a regular participant in the pre-season Playing Pepper series, contacted me since the Cardinals were heading into Chavez Ravine and asked [...]

Given all the things that happened on the diamond this weekend, we weren't able yesterday to really look at the moves that happened--and didn't happen--off the field on Saturday.  Hours after it was clear that the Cardinals had lost the Luis Robert sweepstakes, John Mozeliak traded Matt Adams to Atlanta for Juan Yepez, a 19-year-old [...]

We've all watched the Cardinals this season. We've seen some fun games, some good wins that felt like THE turning point, some losses that stung and losses that we all felt were hard fought despite the outcome. If you pay attention to twitter and have looked through the past week, it seems many of us [...]

Inigo Montoya: Who are you? Man in Black: No one of consequence. Inigo Montoya: I must know. Man in Black: Get used to disappointment. ---The Princess Bride It was about this time last year when I created the Cardinals Frustration Level Index.  It feels like over last few weeks, the Cardinals have really been riding [...]

Sierra Has Peaked

Like most of you, I'm absolutely enamored with watching Magneuris Sierra do pretty much anything on a baseball field.  He's dynamic, exciting and possibly the only player on the team faster than Mike Leake.  He represents the future of Cardinals baseball.  That's why he's nearly out of time. Here are five reasons why it may [...]

If you want to look for the silver lining, the Cardinals could have swept this small series and, at worst, were very competitive with a team that was expected (and still may) to have a deep playoff run.  When you factor in the normal thought that AL teams are better than NL teams overall, there [...]

100% of proceeds from special $9.23 tickets to go to the Salvation Army  St. Louis, Mo., May 17, 2017 – The St. Louis Cardinals announced the team will host a Flood Relief Benefit Concert in partnership with New Country 92.3 radio prior to the Memorial Day game at Busch Stadium on Monday, May 29.  With [...]

Rarely has there been a time that I can remember bringing up my own playing days from Little League when thinking about a post. At the same time, however, the Cardinals have resembled a bad beer league team on more than a few occasions lately so maybe the correlation is due. It was also in [...]
