Randal Grichuk's first two stints in the Major Leagues weren't exactly what he envisioned they'd be. The talented young outfielder, who came to St. Louis in the David Freese-Peter Bourjos trade on Nov. 22 of 2013, made his debut on April 28 and struggled in his first nine games. He batted just .143 in 22 [...]

Heartbreak Cards Going To Work

The last two wins have drained plenty of people across the Midwest. Late inning victories. Relentless action. Playoff style baseball. I sat on my couch last night and my hands started to shake as the Cards climbed a 2-0 deficit in the bottom of the 8th inning. My heart started beating fast. I strangled my [...]

There was no way the St. Louis Cardinals were going to win that game.  There was no good reason why they should and many reasons why they shouldn't.  It just wasn't a game that was going to be a good outcome. Yet we are talking this morning about a magic number of 8 (worn at [...]

In the poster and press release for the current Instagram outing by the Cardinals, #BirdToTheFuture, the pitching ace for the Redbirds is billed as "Sir Adam Wainwright".  While I've had a chance to see the full outing and have seen why that's the case (it's pretty humorous), the real reason that he should have the [...]

Nothing New Under The Sun

We knew, didn't we?  If this had been a network TV show, we'd have watched the first inning, said "This is a rerun" and turned it off.  It's rare when a game can be pretty much decided after the fifth at-bat, but that was the case last night against the Brewers. I was on my [...]

Cards Pregame Bits

Good afternoon folks. It's a lunch break dose here, so the time to engage is 20 minutes. Here we go. All I can think of and put on a page about the Cards. *Starting with Lance Lynn. Post All Star Break, Lynn is 5-3 with a 2.06 ERA in 70 innings. He has 61 strikeouts [...]

#BirdToTheFuture

Last year, the Cardinals tried something fairly unique in the realm of baseball promotion.  Under the label of #Nestflix, they created their own version of the TV show The Office, inspired in large part because the actresses that played Phyllis and Pam were St. Louis natives and big Cardinal fans.  They wrangled Phyllis to play [...]

Humorous Parody Celebrates Team History While Creatively Spotlighting The Cardinals Museum & Team Archive ST. LOUIS, MO (September 15, 2014) –The St. Louis Cardinals will today debut #BirdToTheFuture, an Instagram video series that promises to be a wild and entertaining ride through Cardinals history. “We hope fans enjoy the daily episodes that we will post [...]

Sweeping Some of That Magic Away

After the struggles against Cincinnati, it was good to see the Cardinals come home and take care of business against one of the worst teams in the league.  The sweep against Colorado was pretty necessary as well, since Pittsburgh just dropped one this weekend.  With two weeks to go in the season (really?  Where did 2014 [...]

Pennant Push It Real Good

Good morning everyone, or early afternoon depending on when this hits the site. As we roll out of bed this morning we see the Cardinals sitting at the top of the NL Central with a 3 ½ game cushion on the Pirates. This season has the feel of ones in the not so distant past [...]
