The best medicine for a sputtering, struggling offense?  Make sure that only the minimum output is needed.  That lately seems to be Adam Wainwright's mantra. Wainwright threw another gem last night before leaving with a possible knee injury.  That whole "knee injury" thing would take a little higher priority if the man himself hadn't said [...]

Yesterday was the 25th anniversary of the release of Field of Dreams.  I still remember seeing that movie in the theater and how much I enjoyed it.  It was the first movie I ever received on VHS, a Christmas present the next year.  For the longest time--and, honestly, most likely still today--it along with Casablanca [...]

I hope that you and yours had a wonderful and meaningful Easter weekend.  Even aside from the important religious aspects, it was one of the first warm and sunny weekends we've seen here in a while and I expect that was the case for you as well.  If only the Cardinals had played as nicely [...]

A late craving for Cardinal talk led me to a good chat with our friend Dathan Brooks. No editing, no promos, just a plain old conversation about the Redbirds right here.

Last year, as part of the regular United Cardinal Bloggers' schedule of projects, we discussed who we thought should go into the Cardinal Hall of Fame.  It was all theoretical then, though we did foresee a few things, such as all the retired numbers would go straight into the Hall.  Also, a good number of [...]

Some nights, four errors by the opposing team are just what you need to win.  Some nights, eight runs are crucial to getting the W.  Some nights, 14 hits are a big deal.* Those nights don't have Adam Wainwright on the hill. *Of course, some nights you win the World Series, but that's not relevant [...]

Usually, as the song says, two out of three ain't bad.  While that's still a good way to pile up wins and work your way back into the postseason, it's still good to sweep a club from time to time, especially when you have them down 2-0 in the series.  A loss isn't the end [...]

Say it Ain’t So, Joe

As your faithful Preacher, most of my time is spent looking at how the best prospects can help in St. Louis sooner or later. But as happens on occasion, those posts take a back seat when the injury bug strikes at an inopportune time. Joe Kelly appears to be in danger of missing his next [...]

Yesterday, Fox Sports tweeted out a column by Rob Neyer talking about what the Brewers' recent nine-game winning streak meant.  I didn't get a chance to actually read the article, but it wasn't difficult to come up with an answer to that thought. Basically, it meant the Brewers hadn't played the Cardinals yet. St. Louis [...]

Middle Infield Swap

Mark Ellis joins the team tonight, Pete Kozma heads to Memphis, per Jenifer Langosch.

The Winter Soldiers

When you go to Milwaukee to play baseball around the ides of April, it's not a surprise that you could be thankful that Miller Park has a retractable roof.  You'd expect a strong chance of rain and would hate for it to interfere with the game.  Last night, the roof was closed, but to keep [...]

Good For What Ails Ya

The Cardinal offense had been sputtering, never reaching the heights that we had expected out of such a robust lineup.  Runs were hard to come by, opportunities were squandered, and it just felt like the engine couldn't catch. Then the Chicago Cubs came to town, and while that engine isn't at a full-blown roar, it [...]
