After all the stops and starts, the Cardinals actually took the field this weekend.  They did so in double masks, without touching anyone, and even masked up in Zoom calls after the game.  No one can say they aren’t taking this seriously, because another stoppage would put an end to their season.  (Sadly, their reworked [...]

Eight is Enough

Three rookies had memorable debuts yesterday with already three more wearing the Birds on the Bat with multiple innings to go today. A total of eight Cardinals could altogether join the St. Louis ranks before ever making it to the other side of Chicago. While not a normal situation for sure, the Cards can really [...]

A Tale of Two Rookies

2020 will be remembered for many different things – most bad or at least forgettable without a doubt. Now that the Cardinals have resumed their season, let’s highlight a couple of positive outcomes. St. Louis had the entire sports world dissecting their every move for over two weeks so it would not have been a [...]

Looking for Number 3

Today feels like Opening Day 2.0 for many reasons, but it is a pair of 3’s that everyone who follows the Cardinals will be watching more than anything else. Dylan Carlson got his MLB debut out of the way in the top of the first although St. Louis is much happier to take the early [...]

After much radio silence over the last few days, the Cardinals dropped a lot on folks yesterday.  However, most Cardinal fans only heard six words. Dylan Carlson is being called up. I’ve understood (and argued in favor) of what the front office was doing in looking at their other options first.  It made sense and [...]

Keeping Some Optimism

I honestly think the Cardinals are through the worst of it. Of course, I’d have probably said that last Friday, right before more cases were discovered and another week wound up being wiped off the calendar.  Still, while I have no problems with those cancellations given the situation, it does seem like that might have [...]

The outbreak may be finally contained.  The ramifications are just now starting to take shape. The Cardinals announced that, after sending all the positive COVID-19 cases home, no positives were shown out of the latest round of testing.  If the same thing happens tomorrow–and I would expect it would, given the time from possible infection–the [...]
