The Cardinals Go Viral

John Mozeliak, talking to the bloggers on Wednesday, reiterated that he felt like the team was “in a good spot” and were doing all they could, even as they hold their breath and hope to come out unscathed. Little did he know that, as he was speaking, the wheels were in the process of coming [...]

The St. Louis Cardinals learned late last night that two players have tested positive for COVID-19 in testing that was conducted on Wednesday, July 29 prior to their game against the Twins in Minneapolis, and have instructed the team’s players and staff to self-isolate in their Milwaukee hotel rooms until further notice. The team did not [...]

Zoomin’ With Mo

Most of you know this, but every year since 2011, the Cardinals have hosted the United Cardinal Bloggers at a game.  The interactions, the suites, the food and drink are all well and good, but what most people come for is the question-and-answer session with John Mozeliak and Bill DeWitt III before everything kicks off.  [...]

Minnesota Mean

For a people that have such a reputation for hospitality, the Twins sure didn’t show any last night. Obviously, that was not the kind of outing you wanted to see for the first start of Carlos Martinez.  I wasn’t able to watch the beginning of the game, relying on GameDay to keep me posted, but [...]

GALLEGOS ACTIVATED FROM INJURED LIST; WOODFORD RECALLED FROM A.T.S. MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., July 28, 2020 – The St. Louis Cardinals announced that RHP Miles Mikolas was placed on the 10-day Injured List with a right forearm strain today.  RHP Jake Woodford was recalled from the Cardinals Alternate Training Site in Springfield, Mo., and RHP Giovanny Gallegos (GUY-eh-gohse) was activated from the Injured List. [...]

Pirates Cross the Hudson

Before we get into the game, yesterday was the first day in 135 days we’ve not had a post here at the blog.  Part of me wanted to rush around and get this up then, but having that sort of streak stop is a bit relaxing.  We’ll write when we can, but not being beholden [...]

5.4 and 0

We’ve talked about it numerous times, but the weight of each game this season is 2.7 times a normal season.  Now, with the farce of expanded playoffs, you don’t need as many of those wins, but it’s still mathematically true that 162 divided by 60 is 2.7.  Which means that every win or every loss [...]

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, [...]
