When you looked at this series before it began, Wednesday's game seemed to be the hardest of the bunch.  Sure, Lance Lynn was going and he could be expected to give you a quality start, but Johnny Cueto seemed to be on another level and, at best, you could hope that the Cards kept it [...]

The Cards walked off Tuesday night for the second night in a row. This meant a lot of things but I will break it down into five separate items. Takeaways that I have this evening. 1. Don't Forget About John Lackey. If the defense doesn't miff two plays in the 6th inning, the score isn't [...]

Here's where narrative makes all the difference. For the second straight night, the Cardinals rallied and won in walk-off fashion.  So, if you are the optimist, the narrative is that this team is finally showing some spirit, they are coming together at the right time, they are starting to jell. On the flip side, look [...]

Once Andy Benes signed with the St. Louis Cardinals prior to the 1996 season, it was never his intention to leave. The Evansville, Ind., native signed a five-year, $30 million extension with the Cardinals following the 1997 season, only to have it denied by Major League Baseball's Player Relations Committee because it came after the deadline [...]

There haven't been too many games this season where the pitching staff of the Cardinals has been able to blow one lead, much less two, and still wind up with a victory.  After all, if the Cardinal bats were able to produce a lead, it seems to be asking a bit much these days for [...]

Much Ado About Rosie

For a guy with 36 saves (in 40 opportunities) -- good enough for 3rd on the NL Saves Leaders list behind studs like Francisco Rodriguez and Craig Kimbrel -- Trevor Rosenthal is sure on the hot seat these days. Based on results, that seems a little harsh. But based on actual performance (and the diminishing [...]

Walking One Fine Wire

The Cardinals took three of four from the Padres this weekend.  The Padres are a team now seven games under .500 with an offensive production that resembles a Imperial Stormtrooper's blaster accuracy--not a lot of hits, few scores.  So why is it that it seems the Cards were able to escape with a series win [...]
