Fireworks Night, Pillbox Cap Giveaway & John Goodman Night Highlight The Sixth Homestand of the Season ST. LOUIS, Mo., June 29, 2016 – After completing another winning road trip (5-3), which included a sweep of the Chicago Cubs, the Cardinals return to Busch Stadium for a nine game homestand.  The homestand starts with a two [...]

I know, I know, you can't predict baseball.  There's a whole Twitter account based on that.  Still, there used to be at least a general expectation on Cardinal games.  For instance, last year you were pretty sure that it'd be a low-scoring, well-pitched game by the Redbirds.  In past years, it was that the MV3 [...]

CATCHER ERIC FRYER DESIGNATED FOR ASSIGNMENT KANSAS CITY, Mo., June 28, 2016 – The St. Louis Cardinals announced prior to tonight’s game that they have activated switch-hitting catcher Brayan Pena (left knee surgery) from the 15-day disabled list and designated catcher Eric Fryer for assignment. Pena, 34, who underwent left knee surgery the first week in [...]

The Steady One…

Amidst all the chaos of the Cardinals season (winning streaks, losing streaks, starters struggling, Trevor blowing up nightly, Mike being Mike) there has been one rock, one guy who's carried over from what he did last year and kept doing it: Matt Carpenter. He currently has a slash line of .296/.413/.576 with 13 homers and [...]

LOUIS, Mo., June 27, 2016 – The St. Louis Cardinals are proud to team up with Budweiser to present fans with a special holiday ticket promotion.  Starting today, fans can purchase $4 Loge, Pavilion and Terrace level seats to watch the Cardinals battle [...]

On June 7, the Cincinnati Reds beat the Cardinals.  The following night, the Redbirds returned the favor and won the next night as well.  Since then, for St. Louis it's been sweep or be swept.  They cleaned out the Pirates, were whisked away by the Astros and Rangers, then took care of the Cubs (as [...]

A Not-So-Rosie Picture

The good thing about West Coast games is that, when everything goes south at the end, you are usually tired enough to go to sleep and not dwell on it.  Though, perhaps, last night's game was frustrating enough to keep you tossing and turning while spending your mental time berating the in-name closer of the [...]

A Mariners-Cardinals series is still a pretty interesting novelty.  The two teams last played in 2013 in Busch Stadium, where the Cardinals took the series 2-1.  You have to go all the way back to 2002, just a few days before the terrible week that saw the losses of Jack Buck and Darryl Kile, to find [...]

The Sweetest Sweep

Let's be clear on one thing, for any Cub fans coming in here wanting to argue or anyone that might want examples of the "Best Fans in Baseball."  This is still the Cubs' division to lose and cutting a deficit from 12.5 games to 9.5 games doesn't change that much.  The Cubs are still a [...]

It's such a good thing, at least in this situation, that this Cardinals team doesn't believe in momentum. Going into Chicago and facing the best team in baseball (and, if you believe the press clippings, one of the best teams of all time, perhaps only challenged by the 1927 Yankees), St. Louis could have seen [...]

“Talking the Business of Baseball with Bill DeWitt III” features Q&A along with dinner, cocktails & private Museum look ST. LOUIS, Mo., June 17, 2016 – The St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame and Museum will host an exclusive event entitled “Talking the Business of Baseball with Bill DeWitt III” on Saturday, July 9, from [...]

The last time we got together, everything seemed pretty rosy.  (Not necessarily Rosie, of course.)  The Cardinals had won five straight games to move to seven over .500.  They were in the first wild card position and while the division still was well out of reach, at least the gap wasn't in double digits at [...]
