Proceeds to Benefit Cardinals Care Redbird Rookies Program and Girls on the Run ST. LOUIS, Mo., May 19, 2020– The St. Louis Cardinals announced today that the Cardinals 5K, presented by FOX Sports Midwest, will take place virtually.  The race, originally scheduled for April 11th, was postponed due to restrictions implemented to stop the spread [...]

A few weeks back, we picked a year and found out what the Cardinals did on that day.  As we continue to wait and see what the players and owners can come up with, let’s spin the wheel again.  Actually, inspired by our conversation with Matthew Leach this past weekend, let’s check on the 2004 [...]

We know that everything is going to be different in 2020.  We also know that this year is the worst and if something can go wrong, it probably will and spectacularly.  So if baseball actually does return and the players take the field, the potential for injury rears its ugly head.  But they can’t be [...]

First off, sorry to anyone that expected this at the normal 7 AM drop time.  (Given that readership of these is in the single digits, I don’t think anyone really was.)  Forgot to prep this in advance, but gotta keep things going, right? Yesterday, Ken Rosenthal and Evan Drellich (of course) got a copy of [...]

During the course of this whole pandemic thing, finances have been a huge part of the discussion.  As we know, the return of baseball at all in 2020 relies in large part to the owners and the players coming together over financial matters, mainly the pay to the players.  Money makes the world go ’round [...]

The Cardinals’ four-game sweep of the Cubs at Wrigley Field from last September and the announcement of the 2020 Cardinals Hall of Fame Induction Class headline FOX Sports Midwest’s Cardinals programming for May 18-24.

LOUIS, Mo., May 15, 2020– The St. Louis Cardinals will announce the 2020 Cardinals Hall of Fame Induction Class during a televised 30-minute Hall of Fame announcement special on FOX Sports Midwest on Friday, May 22, at 6:30 PM CT. Cardinals President [...]

Let’s assume–which, again, feels fair but also feels like it could be completely crazy–that the season happens this year.  Can you imagine Official Prospect of the Blog Dylan Carlson having a conversation decades from now with his grandchildren? “Grandpa, tell us about your major league debut.  Were all the fans excited to see you play?” [...]

“For many generations pitchers were guardians of all aspects of the game.  Before the dark times.  Before the DH.” Yes, the designated hitter is coming to the National League.  It seems like it is a fait accompli, though the actual voting and such hasn’t been done.  It makes some sense for this crazy year of [...]

So it seems that, if the season is going to restart (and that currently sits in the hands of the negotiating table….which doesn’t have hands, but I think you get the point) that there is going to be some sort of expanded rosters for each game and a taxi squad, if you will, of players [...]

Over $150,000 to be Donated Among Area Groups That Serve Youth ST. LOUIS, Mo., May 12, 2020– The St. Louis Cardinals have announced that Cardinals Care will distribute over $150,000 in grant money to 70 area nonprofit groups that support local kids as part of the team’s spring grant cycle.  The grants will be used [...]

And here we go.  Not with games.  Not with deadlines.  Not with anything fun or interesting or joyful.  No, here we go with what baseball seems to do best–labor disputes. Yesterday, the owners voted to send a plan over to the players on reopening the game.  There are details in there about scheduling, travel, and [...]
