Opponent: Arizona Diamondbacks Location: Busch Stadium End of day Sammy Sosa total: 2 End of day Ken Griffey Jr. total: 6 To hit 70 home runs in 162 games is an incredible feat, of course.  If it wasn’t, we wouldn’t be marking the 20th anniversary of it happening.  For one thing, it’s hardly ever 162 [...]

Path Of Most Resistance

Admission:  When Joe Mauer was about to step into the box for the at-bat that ended with him picking up his 2,000th career hit, I was angrily mashing portions of my iPhone screen in a fruitless attempt to make MLBtv load faster.  I didn’t make it, and my phone almost didn’t either.  Shame.  Despite recent [...]

I imagine there’s a contingent of fans who are wanting to discount last night’s game because it was Cincinnati and their pitching staff is less than stellar.  Indeed, their team ERA after last night is over 6, the worst in the major leagues.  Their reliever ERA is even worse, over seven.  Their record is 2-10 [...]

RHP SAM TUIVAILALA PLACED ON 10-DAY DISABLED LIST ST. LOUIS, MO –April 12, 2018– The St. Louis Cardinals announced prior to tonight’s game that they have recalled right-handed pitcher Mike Mayers  from Memphis (AAA) and placed right-handed pitcher Sam Tuivailala (left knee strain) on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to April 10.

We so often talk about the impact of a signature win.  A big win that can spur a team on to greater heights because they dug deep and did the improbable.  A huge outing that let them know what they are possible of and they ride the crest of that for a week or so [...]

I thought I’d take a look at how some of our off-season acquisitions have started the season, starting with our (sort of) Japanese import Miles Mikolas. So far Mikolas has had two starts, both against the same opponent, the Milwaukee Brewers. One start was home and one was up north in Milwaukee. The stat lines from [...]

That’s Bull….Pen

I’ll admit, I was one of those that thought it’d be different. I thought Mike Maddux would make a difference.  I thought that the new bullpen arms would be extremely effective.  I thought we’d seen the end of consistently losing games in late innings, especially with questionable decisions. Instead, it’s like 2017 got dressed up [...]

MIKE MAYERS OPTIONED TO MEMPHIS (AAA) ST. LOUIS, MO –April 9, 2018– The St. Louis Cardinals announced prior to tonight’s game that they have recalled right-handed pitcher Greg Holland from Palm Beach (A) and optioned right-handed pitcher Mike Mayers  to Memphis (AAA). Holland, who was signed to a one-year free-agent contract on March 30, appeared in two games for the [...]

After Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo triggered Yadier Molina by directing a rather distasteful obscenity at him during yesterday’s game, the rush to judgment was predictably swift and brutal.  Lovullo earned an ejection the moment he started arguing balls and strikes with the home plate umpire, and he earned the wrath of Yadi as well as [...]
