Is This For Real?

Watching the St. Louis Cardinals go from flat line corpses to adrenaline junkies this weekend, I found myself trapped in a Queen song. "Is This The Real Life/Is This Just Fantasy" The phrase begs repeating and quite a bit of investigating due to the way the 2014 team has treated the home crowd. It hasn't [...]

A few game day thoughts on the Cardinals before the first pitch in 15 minutes. The Cards have been Jekyll and Hyde in August. They have been up and down all season. Good baseball followed by bad baseball. Runs scored followed by a cold streak. They scored more runs(9 in the 8th) in a single [...]

In this frustrating season, I feel like the negativity has reached an all-time high. So I'm taking a page out of a few other bloggers' books and trying to lighten the mood. I'm not going to waste a bunch of time try to spin stats in a way that make losing both series out East [...]

Yadier Molina: True Value

When I think of Yadier Molina's importance to the St. Louis Cardinals, I think of one of my legs to the rest of my body. What would I do without one of my legs?  Molina isn't the heart and soul of the team because that position belongs to the logo on the front of the [...]

A Baseball Kind of Family

Life in the Minor Leagues. It's a subject that has gained steam as of late, what with the Senne vs. MLB lawsuit making headlines, and Minor Leaguers and Major leaguers alike sharing their struggle to survive the system to get to the Show. It's a hard knock life for most. Living arrangements are only one [...]

When the Cardinals were recently on a stretch where they'd scored four runs in ten straight games, I sort of felt that was a low bar to celebrate.  I mean, four runs is right at the league average this year (3.98, per Baseball-Reference as I write this).  They are 55-18 when they hit that level, [...]

After the 3-1 loss today, in which Adam Wainwright took the loss and saw his record drop to 15-9 and his ERA rise to...holy smokes..2.59, the ace of the St. Louis Cardinals rotation admitted he is reeling from "a dead arm". This strikes many starting pitchers in August. They reach 160-180 inning and all those [...]

Deja Vu With An Ugly Twist

There was a strong sense of the familiar last night in Pittsburgh.  A dominant performance by the Pirate starter to keep the Cards off the board?  We saw that Monday as well.  A rally against the Pirates bullpen?  We'd seen that before as well.  All the Cardinals needed was to score late and they'd have [...]

OUTFIELDER SHANE ROBINSON PLACED ON 15-DAY D.L.                                                                                    PITTSBURGH, Pa., August 26, 2014 – The St. Louis Cardinals announced today that outfielder Shane Robinson has [...]
