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 [...]

Eight is Enough

Three rookies had memorable debuts yesterday with already three more wearing the Birds on the Bat with multiple innings to go today. A total of eight Cardinals could altogether join the St. Louis ranks before ever making it to the other side of Chicago. While not a normal situation for sure, the Cards can really [...]

A Tale of Two Rookies

2020 will be remembered for many different things – most bad or at least forgettable without a doubt. Now that the Cardinals have resumed their season, let’s highlight a couple of positive outcomes. St. Louis had the entire sports world dissecting their every move for over two weeks so it would not have been a [...]

Looking for Number 3

Today feels like Opening Day 2.0 for many reasons, but it is a pair of 3’s that everyone who follows the Cardinals will be watching more than anything else. Dylan Carlson got his MLB debut out of the way in the top of the first although St. Louis is much happier to take the early [...]

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 [...]

Stacking the Deck

When you look at the top of the current prospect rankings for the Cardinals, the one area seemingly already set was the hot corner. So it was a slight surprise to see St. Louis add another potential long term option at 3B with the 21st pick. Jordan Walker becomes the newest member of the Birds [...]

Draft Day?

We have finally reached what used to feel like Christmas Day but has taken an eerily similar feel to Groundhog Day instead. Those five loyal participants other than myself who have kept up with C70’s series know just how far away from real baseball we are so at least the MLB Draft provides a small [...]

Cardinals Making Moves

Rarely in over a decade of following mostly the minor leagues can I remember ever being shocked by any baseball news. That quickly changed this afternoon as just possibly all that talk from the St. Louis front office about movement was more than smoke. The Cardinals are preparing to pull off a potentially massive heist [...]

Stepping off the Ride

Just over a year ago, I became a displaced fan of the Birds on the Bat. It also happens to coincide with arguably the most insane 12 months in St. Louis sports history. Whether or not you believe in fate, the bottom line has become this – the Cardinals are one of the last four [...]

It has finally happened. Nope, I wish it was just falling out of Wild Card position or even Carpenter being shut down until 2020. For the first time in at least a decade, the Cardinals have become an afterthought. Yes the calendar still says August and plenty of winnable games remain if something drastic happens [...]

Cards Arm up for Summer

Following a trend that took over baseball, the 2019 MLB Draft is in the books with the majority of teams stocking up on pitchers. The second half finished up yesterday with St. Louis taking a few surprise picks but leaning towards power arms from major college programs. That strategy has served the Cardinals well over [...]

Breaking down Rounds 11-20

If a sign was needed of how stacked the Cardinals are with infielders, just remember the first half of the 2019 Draft. A few high school players were snagged after zero on day two but exactly no infielders were taken by St. Louis. It was more of the same for the Birds on the Bat, [...]
