So here’s the deal. With last night’s win over Pittsburgh, the Cardinals have 10 consecutive series wins. This is a feat achieved only twice previously (’44 & ’09) in the franchise’s history. They have not lost back-to-back games since dropping a finale in Chicago and an opener in Cincinnati on July 22nd and 23rd, 38 [...]

When Mike Matheny was fired on July 14th, who did you think would be managing the Cardinals in 2019? Joe Girardi? Stubby Clapp? Mark McGwire? Those were just a few of the names bandied about in the hours after the managerial change. But what about Mike Shildt, the man given the interim gig? Well, at [...]

It can be argued that the truest pivot point for the St. Louis Cardinals was the July 27th rearrangement of the bullpen. The team is 22-7 since that point and has not lost a series. The bullpen has been a boon for the team, holding a 2.58 ERA since that day — a mark still [...]

A beer vendor cries out that it’s “too cold to hold” as the organist accompanies with “Here Comes the King.” A scent of jumbo dogs is floating on the breeze as a dad shows his child to the seats from which they will watch their first Cardinals game. This is a special place, an almost [...]

Not quite 15 months ago, the Cardinals sent Matt Adams to the Atlanta Braves for a lottery ticket prospect. Today, they had a successful waiver claim to put the Birds on the Bat back on his chest. Last year, Adams was squeezed out of the picture by Matt Carpenter at 1B, who had been planted [...]

It’s been a few years since we’ve had any reason to analyze the way in which the starting rotation would line up for the final month of the regular season. For the last 2 years the Cardinals have sat on the fringes of contention, putting them in a “take your best shots now and figure [...]

We all know how Marcell Ozuna came to be a St. Louis Cardinal. After the very interesting, frustrating, and, ultimately, futile pursuit of Giancarlo Stanton, the Cardinals had to pivot to another of the Marlins’ outfielders. Though it has been speculated that Christian Yelich was the preferred target, the Cardinals pounced on the opportunity to [...]

Maybe you haven’t noticed, but the Cardinals are playing pretty well. Since Mike Shildt ascended to the managerial throne, the team is 18-9, the best mark in the National League. The current 7-game winning streak has put them at 10 games over .500 for the first time since the final game of 2016. They have [...]
