I’m not doing a great job at it, but I’m trying to wean myself off of Twitter, at least not having it up all the time.  (And speaking of Twitter, still need a lot more input on the Top Cards!)  So I was off of it for a bit yesterday when the latest Cardinal social [...]

It’s become an annual tradition at this point.  When October rolls around and the regular season is over, we start the process of rating those that provide content on the website/cesspool (depending on the day and your point of view) known as Twitter.  This will be the sixth year we’ve done this and every year [...]

Ten years ago, Mount Rushmore was real. When you listed the legends of the St. Louis Cardinals, the same names kept coming up.  Stan Musial.  Lou Brock.  Bob Gibson.  Ozzie Smith.  (There was obviously a case for Rogers Hornsby, but being that he played in the time before TV, many folks didn’t bring him to [...]

Another Postseason Chapter

Today, the Cardinals play in their second straight postseason. Now, if you were reading that sentence about 15 years ago, you’d probably be a bit confused.  Just two in a row?  What happened?  Isn’t it the Cardinals’ birthright to be in October every year?  If you were reading that sentence toward the end of the [...]

Is Today The Tipping Point?

One of the reasons I came up with the idea of writing every day during the pandemic shortage is because I knew that, if left to my own devices, there would be some lengthy gaps.  Kinda like the one between the last post and this. It’s been a couple of weeks and a lot of [...]

Bobbing Around .500

Up two.  Even.  Down two.  Even.  It seems like the Cardinals can’t get away from the pull that is sea level.  They’ve been 2-2, 3-3, 4-4, 5-5, 6-6, 7-7, 8-8, 11-11, 13-13, and now 14-14. By all measures, this is a .500 team.  They’ve put together a winning streak, defined as “more than one win [...]

Running on Empty

Today normally would be one of the high points in a baseball season. Besides the Draft and sometimes the Winter Meetings, I look forward to trade deadline day for any number of reasons. No one needs to hear me say this is anything close to a normal campaign and honestly, the Cardinals want something not [...]
