Rookie Redbirds

Because 2020 has been like nothing we have ever seen, it makes perfect sense that baseball has returned almost as an afterthought. With jobs, schools, and real life impacted on a daily basis, thoughts about a game would not normally take center stage. That all changed yesterday, however, and the sprint towards October while beating [...]

We’ve done it.  We’ve made the long trek from those days of March fraught with uncertainty and loss to today, where we still have much uncertainty but we gain the game of baseball yet again, at least for a time.  Cardinal baseball begins the 2020 season tonight against the Pirates. So, with baseball right on [...]

17 PLAYERS DEVELOPED WITHIN THE ORGANIZATION; THREE FIRST-TIME CARDINALS ST. LOUIS, MO., July 23, 2020– The St. Louis Cardinals will open their 129thseason of play in the National League tomorrow night when they host the Pittsburgh Pirates at 7:15 p.m. CDT in the opening game of the shortened 60-game regular season.  The team’s active roster [...]

As you know, I’ve done a lot of post series in my day.  Every year we have Pepper and Top Cards and Exit Interviews.  But I have never, never been as excited to see a series end as this one.  When I first thought I’d write every day of the pandemic-caused stoppage, I really didn’t [...]

If a fired Cardinal manager returns to Busch Stadium and there are no fans to boo him, does it really happen? Mike Matheny will be in the visitor’s dugout for the first time, at least as an opposing manager.  Actually, it’s the only time he’s ever been on that side of Busch III.  In 2006, [...]

If you’ve listened to the most recent Musial and/or Gateway, you know that I’ve not necessarily been completely transfixed by this whole Summer Camp thing.  Maybe that’ll change a little bit tomorrow when the Royals come into town for what should at least approximate a real game, but having to find the game on a [...]

If this post runs on schedule, that means we are very, very close to Opening Day.  Which means we should take a quick look at the rest of the division because, barring an outbreak, we’ll be seeing a lot of these folks. C70: Does the shortened season work for or against your team? Neil: The [...]

It’s not the superdivision that we heard rumors of early on in the planning process, but the Cards are going to stay regional and play all the AL Central teams this season.  Let’s see what their bloggers think of what’s coming up! C70: Does the shortened season work for or against your team? Samiya: The [...]

No late nights, trying to keep your eyes open to see the seventh inning of a Cardinals/Dodgers game in Los Angeles.  While there’s some novelty to those games (and Twitter can get fun and weird in them), I don’t think many of us are going to miss them this year.  Let’s see what these folks [...]

Fans Can Dine and Watch Cardinals Game Broadcasts on Clark Street Outside Busch Stadium ST. LOUIS, Mo., July 17, 2020– Cardinals Nation will reopen on Monday, July 20, just in time for the start of the shortened Major League Baseball season.  The restaurant will feature Cardinals Opening Weekend game viewing on Clark Street by adding [...]

We continue running around the majors by checking in with our American League friends out West.  I imagine they, more than any other group, will be glad of the limited time zone changes for their TV watching this season. C70: Does the shortened season work for or against your team? James: I think it works [...]
