Trusting the System

Things got real before any of us even had a chance to know just what the St. Louis brass was about to pull off. It started around the time that Adam Wainwright came home for another season but in all reality, the Winter Warm-Up should have been the first clue. I never got around to [...]

Waino for the Booth

Whether it was listening to Daniel and Tara on Gateway to Baseball Heaven or the Broadcaster roundtable at the Winter Warm-Up, two thoughts stuck out in my head. As much as I enjoy listening to the St. Louis broadcasts, that would not be the case with all Horton all the time, but I also think [...]

Sorting the St. Louis Outfield

One of the limitations to the Winter Warm-Up has been the time constraints. For good or bad, keeping the presentations to an hour really leaves it up to the host on how the the show flows. This was on prime display for both of the afternoon sessions on Sunday but also perfectly explained how the [...]

Embracing the New Reality

While it was always obvious that this edition of the Winter Warm-Up would be different, the virtual event couldn’t explain why something just felt off. First it was the Infielder session yesterday followed by the Bullpen group this morning. Separate hosts handled the festivities so it wasn’t intentional but what finally hit me was how [...]

Young Cardinals Ready for 2021

Curious what a year without Minor League games would do to St. Louis prospects? You should no longer worry after hearing how prepared two of the brightest are entering a crucial campaign. Nolan Gorman and Matthew Liberatore have grown up in the game together and now look to make it hard for the Cardinals to [...]

Warming Up

It figures that my phone woke me up with snow this morning. Nothing says welcome to winter quite like a fresh dusting but at least the last year taught us that some things will not be stopped! And with that I welcome you to the Winter Warm-Up for 2021. No one outside of maybe Lance [...]

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 [...]
