Remember back when this all started we were finishing up our Playing Pepper series?  With so many things different now, I thought I’d shoot a few quick questions to a representative of each team to see how things were looking for them.  Let’s start with the AL East! C70: Does the shortened season work for [...]

After stops and starts earlier in the week when testing issues kept the Cardinals from the field, it seems like they’ve started to find their rhythm over the last few days.  All the workouts and games have been moved to the evening, which makes sense given the blazing summer heat that is running through seemingly [...]

Whether the season happens or not, you can tell that it at least is appearing to happen.  Just like at the beginning of any year, the news has started flying a little faster now that we are two weeks from Opening Day. Wednesday, the Cardinals finally announced the rest of their 60-man player pool, the [...]

Monday night, for the first time since summer camp kicked off, Carlos Martinez made it to the field.  It seems he was a victim of some of that testing lag we’ve been talking about, as he was in the same plane as Ricardo Sanchez and Genesis Cabrera, I believe, both of whom tested positive.  Martinez [...]

The Cardinals delayed their workouts for a long time yesterday and, for a few moments, it looked like they were going to have to scrap another day of training.  Losing two full days out of a summer camp that is only 21 days long is less than ideal.  We’re not sure how well the players [...]

If we’re going to keep the tightrope analogy going, yesterday saw baseball briefly slip one foot off of it, increasing fears of a tumble. Early in the day, a number of teams cancelled their workouts due to the fact that they weren’t getting test results back in a timely manner.  The Cardinals initially pushed their [...]

Over the weekend, we got two days closer to the return of baseball.  Right now, there are 19 days until the Cardinals face another team in a game that actually counts (and this series can mercifully come to an end).  As the club was doing that, though, there were reminders that this season, while agreed [...]

If you remember from earlier in this series, I’ve taken the Cardinals in Out of the Park Baseball 21 and am simulating the season, with minimal interference, just to see how things are going to go.  At the end of May, these Cardinals were in last place, seven games behind the Reds, and struggling.  So [...]

When we started this series back in March, I don’t think we expected that the only baseball we’d see on the Fourth of July would be people taking grounders and doing drills.  (Perhaps if things with the owners had gone differently, we’d be talking about Opening Day right now, but it seems fruitless to rehash [...]

We’ve got our first pictures of players at Busch.  I think that’s all we need today. Back on the field 💪 — St. Louis Cardinals (@Cardinals) July 2, 2020

We still don’t know the official schedule, though it sounds like the Pirates will be in St. Louis July 24-26.  (Get your tickets now….oh, wait.)  What we do seem to know, though, is that the Cardinals are going to walk out of the cornfield.  Is this baseball heaven?  No, it’s Iowa. Even as the idea [...]

Early on in the coronavirus shutdown, you saw all these little games on Twitter popping up.  “Pick 1 from row one, 1 from row two, 1 from row three.”  That kind of thing.  There was also the ever-popular “Who are you quarantining with?” category, where different people were grouped together and you picked the one [...]
