The Kids Are All Right

When Whitney Houston sang that she “believe[d] that children are our future”, I’m sure she had a game like last night in mind. The scoring started with Juan Yepez blasting his second career home run, giving him five extra base hits in his first seven career games.  The next two scored on a double by [...]

KODI WHITLEY OPTIONED TO MEMPHIS (AAA) ST. LOUIS, MO., May 11, 2022– The St. Louis Cardinals announced this afternoon that they have recalled rookie right-handed pitcher Jake Walsh from Memphis (AAA), and that right-handed pitcher Kodi Whitley was optioned to Memphis following last night’s game. Walsh, 26, will be making his Major League debut with his first game [...]

An Aversion To Orange

The Cardinals won Friday night on a ninth-inning single by Dylan Carlson.  It was a good game against a tough foe, their second in a row against the Giants, and it gave the Cardinals something they hadn’t had all season long–a three game winning streak.  Surely things were looking up and the team that we [...]

PAUL DEJONG OPTIONED & ROOKIE INF KRAMER ROBERTSON ADDED ST. LOUIS, MO., May 10, 2022– The St. Louis Cardinals announced prior to tonight’s series opener with Baltimore that they have optioned shortstop Paul DeJong to Memphis (AAA) and selected the contract of rookie infielder Kramer Robertson from the Memphis club. The right-handed hitting Robertson, who was the Cardinals [...]

The Bats Continue

Perhaps we should just all reach a breaking point more often, because after two games against the Royals where the Cardinals could only muster one run in each game, they’ve now gotten a fresh supply of runs and are spending them like there’s no tomorrow.  Ten against the Royals on Wednesday, seven last night against [...]

Coruscant or Tatooine

This idea of a feast or famine offense isn’t at all a new thing.  We’ve been talking about this for years, it seems like (and it definitely pre-dates the Jeff Albert era, if you are wondering) and one of the last times I wrote on this topic, I said we needed a new term because [...]

For the second straight day, the Cards faced the Royals and mustered only one run in the process.  Unlike Monday afternoon in Busch, though, one run wasn’t nearly enough to win last night in Kansas City.  Perhaps the club can find a recently deceased tauntaun to put them in, because heaven knows they need to [...]

Since we last got together in this space, the Cardinals have played five games.  They’ve won three, they’ve lost two.  What they haven’t done, really? Hit. The Cardinals have a .222/.267/.329 batting line over that span and that includes the 15 single attack (back in my day, that was just called an album but the [...]

PITCHERS NAUGHTON & BROOKS COME OFF ROSTER TODAY AS MLB REDUCES ACTIVE ROSTERS TO 26 ST. LOUIS, MO., May 2, 2022– Prior to today’s game, the St. Louis Cardinals announced that they have reduced their active roster by rule to 26 players. The team announced this morning that left-handed pitcher Packy Naughton has been optioned to the [...]

If you can say nothing else about this Cardinals team, you can say that they play with a passion.  When your leader is Nolan Arenado, I don’t think you have much choice. There are many things to love about Mr. Arenado.  There’s the fact that he’s currently first in the National League and second only [...]

For the first time this season, though probably not the last, the Cardinals provided a heartbreaking example of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.  There are going to be losses that hurt more because of the stakes and how important they are, but for the fact that this was a game in the first [...]
