C70 At The Bat

The Los Angeles Dodgers came into St. Louis with an offensive swagger.  I don’t mean that people were offended by them, though I don’t know your personal opinion about those boys in blue.  No, they were a powerhouse of offense, hitting .307 as a team, slugging homers left and right, and basically pounding some opponents [...]

Last year, I said that I was going to try to do better about writing regularly and not having as many big huge recap posts that covered entire series and the like.  I made no such vow this year.  I’ll see about doing better but I make no promises, which is kinda where we are [...]

So before the season started, the United Cardinal Bloggers got together and did their regular roundtable.  As always, I went last in the questioning and, as is distressingly more and more common, delayed getting the excellent answers provided posted.  Let’s rectify that now, shall we?  To our expert panel, I posed the following: Give as [...]

You know, for all the craziness, for all the issues, for all the angst around the Cardinals, if they’d been able to complete the ninth inning Sunday intact they’d be 3-2 and tied with the Brewers atop the NL Central.  As it is, they are second, the only non-Brewers team in the division with multiple [...]

Off On the Wong Foot

The St. Louis Cardinals started the 2019 season yesterday.  No matter the result, that was a positive thing.  Our spring, summer, and fall obsession is now back and most every day we’ll have a new game to watch, more things to dissect, complaints and cheers to be made.  Baseball is back and that is a [...]

As Dan McLaughlin will say in about seven hours from this writing, “Welcome to Cardinals baseball.” This is it, folks.  We’ve made it through the long offseason, made longer by the fact that it was the third without playoff baseball.  We’ve survived the winter of our discontent with the front office.  We’ve plowed through rumors [...]

As of this morning, most of the Cardinals have abandoned Jupiter and have winged their way to the land of the Delta blues, though not in the middle of a pouring rain.  (Which, given the history of these Cardinals/minors exhibitions, is kind of a surprising thing.)  While some went with the team to play in [...]

Every year since 2009, I’ve spent some time before the season starts trying to find out what fanbases are thinking about their team.  It’s so easy to get myopic, especially with Twitter, so it’s a good chance for us (and by us, I mean me) to take a step back and remember there are 29 [...]

The Gold Standard

It was quite the day for Cardinals news yesterday.  Two games and a declaration of a fifth starter, not to mention the apparent fate of Alex Reyes.  We’ll get to all that but it was all overshadowed by a report that came out yesterday afternoon, quickly confirmed, that Paul Goldschmidt would be signing an extension. [...]
