The Cardinals had their annual official kickoff to a new season this weekend, the Winter Warmup.  (In the spirit of the big news of the weekend, perhaps it should be noted that the Cardinals’ convention is clearly designed to support their charitable arm, while I can find no such information about the Cubs convention that [...]

Michael Wacha is again going through the arbitration process.  It’s very likely he’ll settle for a one-year deal before I finish this post.  What strikes me strange is the fact that, given the Cardinals’ history, he’s had to go through this process all three years.  We’ll tackle the question posed in the title a bit [...]

First off, I probably should wish you a happy new year and all that.  After all, it’s been a little bit since we got together and talked.  I mean, it was right before Christmas when we talked about Andrew Miller.  While the stove is fairly cool and there’s not necessarily anything major to discuss, I [...]

The Way They (An)Drew It Up

This offseason, the Cardinals had a few goals.  They wanted to get a bat for the middle of the order and checked that off with Paul Goldschmidt.  They wanted a left-handed bat, perhaps for the bench.  It remains to be seen whether Drew Robinson is actually said bat, but they did trade Patrick Wisdom for [...]

A Little Chat With Mo

If you’ve followed any of the Cardinal bloggers for very long, you know that every year since 2011 we’ve had a chance to spend the day at the ballpark and have a Q&A with John Mozeliak and Bill DeWitt III.  A couple of years ago, we were able to arrange to submit questions in writing [...]

“Go west, young man” was the cry of a generation that headed to California looking for success in the form of gold.  The Cardinals didn’t go that far west but found Goldy all the same. Days before the winter meetings in Las Vegas, the Cards struck it rich by acquiring Paul Goldschmidt from the Arizona [...]

Goldschmidt’s a Cardinal

Per the official Twitter, Paul Goldschimdt is now a Cardinal in exchange for Luke Weaver, Carson Kelly, Andy Young, and the Cardinals’ compensation round B pick.  More on this as we get a chance to digest it.

Having Cake and Eating It

Right now, Twitter is a bit abuzz with rumors of a Paul Goldschmidt deal being almost done for the Cardinals.  (And, if you don’t believe that, which is completely fair and most likely the right thing to do, there are still reports of discussions between the two teams.)  I wrote earlier about how prioritizing Goldschmidt [...]

Exit Interview 2018: The Index

We’ve finally come to the end of our look back at all the players that put on the Cardinal uniform this past season and the managers and front office staff that put them in place.  It’s been a long road, so if there’s someone you missed or any you’d like to revisit, the links are [...]

Every year since 2012, we’ve spent some time after the season looking back at those that wore the Birds on the Bat.  Whether it’s a bit player that got into just a couple of games or someone that played almost every day, we’ll look at their stats, their positives, their negatives, and grade them based [...]
