Matt Holliday Makes A Real Exit

On August 12th, I posted a piece called ‘Everything Ends Badly, Otherwise It Wouldn’t End‘. It was the day after this: After almost 7.5 years in the middle of the Cardinals lineup, I was pretty sure that Matt Holliday was done with the Cardinals. And that the last image we’d have of Holliday wearing the […]


Guest Post: ‘We Just Might…”

Ed Note: This is a guest post from friend of The CD John Madigan on Thursday night’s Cardinals/Reds game. It has been lightly edited for clarity. Apologies in advance for two straight positive posts on this site. Hey CD fans, allow me to not only celebrate last night’s victory, but reminisce a bit as well. […]


Cardinals Unfurl A Truly Odious Game On Unsuspecting Public

Wow. Conolances if you spent any part of your evening watching the Cardinals ‘play baseball’. I took a screengrab of these lovely young women. How excited they must have been to go to the game tonight. Bless their hearts – they instead bore witness a savage beating. And they somehow made it to the end. […]


Welp, This Is It

Seven games left, people. Seven. By this time next week the Cardinals will be done playing baseball games that count until April 2017 or getting ready for a 1 game Wild Card showdown. Four against the Reds. Three against the Pirates. This is going to be a stressful week, isn’t it? They Gonna Do It? […]


Mike Shannon’s Is Having A Cardinals Memorabilia Auction

After roughly 30 years of business in downtown St. Louis, Mike Shannon’s restaurant closed this past January. If you ever visited Shannon’s, you might have wondered what was going to happen to all the memorabilia hung on the walls or ensconced in one of their fancy display cases. Wonder no longer. It’s being auctioned off […]


Vin Scully Retires

‘Mind blown’. It’s a phrase that has been watered down over the years, but every once in while you see or hear or read something that truly sticks with you. That changes your perception of a thing you thought you knew. Vin Scully is one of the best baseball announcers ever. And he’s been with […]


Cards & Cubs In Wrigley Will Shape the NL Postseason

Like millions of other sheeple, I was kind of/sort of watching the waning minutes of the Pats/Texans game (27-0 Pats) – too lazy to find something else to watch – when I saw that the Phillies had taken a 7-6 lead over the Mets in the top of the 11th. By the time I got […]


10 Games To Go & Nobody Knows Anything

My dad asked me tonight what I thought was going to happen this weekend in the Cards/Cubs series. The answer was short: ‘I don’t know’. And – candidly – I didn’t even care to try and put any thought behind it. There is no outcome that would be surprising anymore. Cards could sweep. Cubs could sweep. […]



The – Actual – Season Defining Series Starts Tonight In Denver

After Friday night’s game, ya’ll had doubts didn’t you? You thought that somehow the Cardinals were going to go into a four-game series with the Giants and do something other than split? Even after you were informed on Thursday morning it was a “mortal lock“? Silly goose. It was a split series (of course). And the […]

So let’s review: 1- The Cardinals got mollywhopped in San Francisco last night by the Giants, who ended a 3 game losing streak while extending the Cardinals current losing streak to 2. 2 – The loss pushed the Cardinals 2 full games behind the Giants and 1 game behind the Mets for the 2 NL […]


It’s Almost A Mortal Lock This Series Splits, Right?

The Cubs are a much, much better team than the Cardinals. No matter how the last series of the year turns out between the two, the fact that the Cardinals were able to get at least 8 wins against the ’16 Cubs is a minor miracle. No other team in MLB even has 6. Hell, […]
