C70 At The Bat

Given the limitations the St. Louis Cardinals have, whether self-imposed or not, as a result of the loss of revenue relating to COVID-19, the situations around Yadier Molina and Adam Wainwright are pretty much the only game in town when it comes to something to interest us this winter.  There’s no Paul Goldschmidt trade as [...]

Earlier today we finished up our march through the best Cardinals Twitter accounts, crowning beat writer Derrick Goold as the best for 2020 (which, when you think about it, might be a backhanded complement).  Now let’s look at things from a few different angles. As you probably saw, people were named on a varying amount [...]

We’ve made it to the end of our Twitter list.  While we’ll shuffle the numbers a little this afternoon, we need to get the Fab Five* of Cardinals Twitter listed out. *–It’s really seven, because…..you’ll see. Number 5: buffa82 @ksdknews baseball columnist and film critic. Love coffee and cigars, but hates bugs. Part time radio/podcaster. [...]

Top 10.  Rarified air.  Not only that, we’ve got ourselves a poll jumper as well, what might be one of the biggest leaps into the Top 10 in a while.  So let’s find out who it is! Number 10: birdsontheblack St. Louis Cardinals & MiLB affiliates blog. We do this because we love it. It [...]

We’re knocking on the door of the Top 10 and this is a group that’d be well poised to cover it if it was an actual story.  We’re media heavy in this one! Number 15: hochman Sports columnist for my hometown paper, St. Louis Post-Dispatch (@stltoday). Author of 3 books, including: “The Big 50 – [...]

This morning we took a look at the first group of our Top 25.  This afternoon, we’ll keep it going with five more really solid follows! Number 20: tarawellman TV host & producer. Baseball lover. Cupcake connoisseur. Just assume it’s sarcasm. #BirdSeeds • #BeLikeMik • Contributor at @birdsontheblack Waino. Bueno. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 #robertoclementeaward — Tara Wellman [...]

All right, now we get down to the nitty-gritty, assuming anyone even says that any more.  They probably don’t.  Anyway, we’ve gone through a lot of great accounts but, according to the voting, these were the very best ones.  As is our tradition, we’ll look at each of these in a little more depth, starting [...]

All right, it’s our last look at a big batch before we break down the Top 25 a little more closely.  Some of these folks were in that Top 25 last year, some were way farther down.  They’ve come together to create…..well, this post basically. A little bit surprised to see Stiles dropping from last [...]

We’re plugging right along, getting closer and closer to the top of the list.  In this post we’ll look at some familiar folks that fell just outside the top 50. Off to a strong start!  I enjoyed having Uncle Frank join me on a Meet Me at Musial podcast earlier in the year.  You’ll find [...]

Here we are, at the end of Day 2 of this series, reaching into the top 100.  Going forward, you are going to see a lot of names that you recognize (not that it has been an issue up to this point) and hopefully if you aren’t following these folks you give some consideration to [...]

We’re reaching roughly the halfway point of our work through the top St. Louis Cardinals-related accounts on Twitter.  I hope you’ve enjoyed the trip so far.  If you haven’t seen your name, it could well be that it is coming up soon!  Or you need to start your write-in campaign for next year, one of [...]

Welcome back to another day of posts where I list out Twitter accounts!  I hope that you are able to use these to find some accounts that will enliven your timeline and give you some people to have some fun talking (or maybe arguing!) Cardinal baseball with.  I’ve virtually met a lot of great people [...]
