Is Today The Tipping Point?

One of the reasons I came up with the idea of writing every day during the pandemic shortage is because I knew that, if left to my own devices, there would be some lengthy gaps.  Kinda like the one between the last post and this. It’s been a couple of weeks and a lot of [...]

Bobbing Around .500

Up two.  Even.  Down two.  Even.  It seems like the Cardinals can’t get away from the pull that is sea level.  They’ve been 2-2, 3-3, 4-4, 5-5, 6-6, 7-7, 8-8, 11-11, 13-13, and now 14-14. By all measures, this is a .500 team.  They’ve put together a winning streak, defined as “more than one win [...]

Running on Empty

Today normally would be one of the high points in a baseball season. Besides the Draft and sometimes the Winter Meetings, I look forward to trade deadline day for any number of reasons. No one needs to hear me say this is anything close to a normal campaign and honestly, the Cardinals want something not [...]

When last I wrote, things were looking up.  The Cardinals had held their own against the division leading Cubs as they dealt with the aftereffects of the COVID outbreak.  They were dealing with the Reds, who had struggled this year after being expected to contend.  They had Kansas City and Pittsburgh on the horizon.  Life [...]

Photo Credit: Associated Press — — — — Hey there, been awhile. Between a lack of baseball, discouraging baseball news, a two week stretch without Cardinals baseball, and my own personal case of writer’s block — it’s been quite a while since I contributed to this blog. So here’s a little something to break the [...]

LOUIS, Mo., August 24, 2020– St. Louis Cardinals President of Baseball Operations John Mozeliak issued the following statement this afternoon: “Given our experience with the outbreak, we have to be extra vigilant as we fight the coronavirus with the three basic principles of social distancing, wearing a mask, and proper hygiene. The Cardinals as [...]

It’s a rare week, of course, that sees seven baseball games at all, much less between Monday and Friday.  We spent a lot of time without the Cardinals and now, it’s almost like we can’t get away from them!  This weekend is more normal and there’s only one doubleheader next week, so maybe we’ll catch [...]

Cardinals Live pregame starts at 6:30 p.m. CT, with first pitch from Busch Stadium scheduled for 7:15 p.m. Channel numbers [...]
