Cardinals Chatter

It’s Time

Carlos Martinez. Tsunami. CMart. Fire. Electric. Brilliant. Emotional. Heart. Joy. Love. Generous. Kind. Impatient. Loyal. Student. Teacher. Child like. Thoughtful. Mournful. Rising star. Capable. Hopeful. Determined. Responsible. Respectful. Memorable. All of these words can be used to describe Carlos. He is growing up before our eyes, under a spotlight. At times, it seems as though [...]

Holding On

The Cardinals started the season on a rollercoaster and have quickly become the Tea Cup ride…they are simply spinning in circles. Their wins happen against losing teams, and sometimes, that is not a given. They lost 2 of 3 to the Orioles and failed to sweep the supposed worst team in baseball, the Phillies.

Tough Love

A few days ago, Stephen Piscotty addressed the media and spoke of a family issue that is unimaginably difficult to go through. After playing in a game or two upon his return, he addressed the media again after a blunder out in right field. The ball got lost in the sun and he missed what [...]
