After three straight seasons of missing the playoffs, this season’s edition of the Cardinals doesn’t feel much different than what we’ve seen before. For all the talk over the last few years of improving the team, the team’s performance on the field has yet to make a substantial leap forward. Many assumed that the acquisition [...]

That Winning Energy

The Cardinals won five of the seven games during the last week.  The series against the Marlins was good, but whether it was the competition level or how those games played out (or the clunker that ended the series), those games didn’t feel much different than what we’d been seeing out of the Cardinals, except [...]

It’s (Not) A Tarp!

With the rain coming down on Thursday night, the Mets leading 4-2 with just three outs to go, a decision was made to not bring the tarp out–well, to return it, as the grounds crew had already started bringing it out–and try to get the game over without a delay. In an alternate dimension, the [...]

LOUIS, Mo., June 13, 2019 –The St. Louis Cardinals announced prior to tonight’s game in New York, that they have recalled rookie left-handed pitcher Génesis Cabrera (pronounced hen-e-sis) from Memphis (AAA) and placed rookie right-handed pitcher Ryan Helsley (right shoulder impingement) on the 10-day Injured List.

A Week’s Worth of Meh

I’ve said often this season that I don’t want to write these big recap posts, but this one was unavoidable due to moving into a new house (which went well, by the way, though there are boxes stacked hither, thither, and yon).  However, as we’ve also noted, it gets darn hard to get excited about [...]

LOUIS, Mo., June 11, 2019– The St. Louis Cardinals have signed their first round draft pick (19th overall) in the 2019 Major League Baseball Draft, left-handed pitcher Zack Thompson, out of the University of Kentucky. Thompson, 21, arrived at Busch Stadium today to [...]

Last night, the Cardinals cruised to a relatively easy 4-1 victory behind six shutout innings from Michael Wacha. This series should be a perfect opportunity for the Cardinals to gain some traction: the Marlins are 28th in Major League Baseball in position player WAR (1.0) and 23rd in WAR from pitchers (3.4). But, on Monday [...]

This past week I was listening to Golic and Wingo on my way to work and they had former NHL player Eddie Olczyk on to talk about the Stanley Cup Finals. During the spot he sort of mocked the fact that the St. Louis Blues had yet to remove the interim tag from interim head coach [...]
