LOUIS, Mo., August 30, 2021–The St. Louis Cardinals and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch are teaming up to present fans with a special discount ticket offer. On sale now, fans [...]

Before last week, it was easy to start getting excited about the possibility of making a push to the second wild card.  Losing two of three to the Brewers didn’t help but there was no shame in that.  Then they lost two of three to the Pirates and split with the Tigers.  Yet for all [...]

The Phillies lost.  The Reds lost.  The Padres lost.  With the Cardinals playing the Tigers, this would have been an excellent time to tighten up the race. Instead, the only tightening was in Jack Flaherty‘s shoulder and the Cards lost yet another opportunity to gain significant ground in the playoff race, something that we’ve been [...]

PREMIER FRANCHISE PLAYER TO RETURN FOR 19TH SEASON AS A CARDINAL ST. LOUIS, Mo., August 24, 2021–The St. Louis Cardinals announced today that they have agreed to terms with premier franchise catcher Yadier Molina on a one-year contract for the 2022 season.  Financial terms were not disclosed. “On behalf of the Cardinals and our fans, it gives me [...]

Competing On the Same Level

The Cardinals faced the division leading Brewers last week.  They won one, should have won another, and held their own in a shutout loss in the third.  When you watched that series, you understood that Milwaukee was the better team but that the Cardinals were better than a team that was double-digits behind them. The [...]

So Close and Yet So Far

Right about a month ago, I invoked Director Krennic when talking about a game that got away against the Cubs when everything was set up for a big day.  So we’ll go with another cultural reference instead this time. Going into the game, the Cardinals already knew that the Padres had lost to the Rockies [...]

Just As Advertised

We knew going into this series with the Brewers that pitching would probably dominate and runs would likely be at a premium.  After one game, those assumptions are holding up. The Cardinals got the short end of the 2-0 score last night.  The loss hurt because of what it meant for the playoff race–dropping back [...]

The Cardinals, much like Mr. Twain, would like to say that the reports of their demise have been greatly exaggerated.  John Mozeliak would like to point out that not all that glitters is gold but diamonds are found in the dirt. At the trading deadline, the Cardinals seemed pretty close to dead.  Their playoff odds [...]

Keith Hernandez, Tom Herr, John Tudor & Bill White To Be Enshrined on Saturday, Aug. 21 Full Weekend of Activities Planned Including New Cardinals Hall of Fame Red Jacket Parade ST. LOUIS, Mo., August 12, 2021–The St. Louis Cardinals today announced a full weekend of activities for the 2021 Cardinals Hall of Fame Weekend presented [...]

Yesterday morning, I sat wrong in my office chair and for the rest of the day my back bothered me.  It twinged if I stepped wrong, it made it hard to sit comfortably, it was generally a less than pleasant experience. Last night, Adam Wainwright threw a complete game in less than 90 pitches. It [...]
