Mike Matheny Currently Ranks Last In MLB For Replay Challenges

There are a whole generation of baseball fans being born now that are never going to experience these: The replay system in baseball is here to stay. And if we’re being really honest, it’s for the best. Not only for the teams and fans, but for those poor manager’s blood pressure. So much stack […]


Another Patented EASY CD Contest: Bite Tech Edition

We don’t have many rules at Cards Diaspora. In fact, on our officially recognized Internet charter we have but two listed: 1) Ball hard. 2) If any company wants to give us prizes to give away, we’ll run a contest. Further, said contest will be easy. No forms. You don’t have to like us on […]

Tony LaRussa Fêteing Coming To Oakland

This upcoming weekend Tony LaRussa will join the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame. His head will be put on a plaque (sans team cap) and that plaque will be hung in Cooperstown NY to serve as a reminder that he was one of the all-time great managers of baseball. A deserved honor, for sure. […]


The David Price Drama Now Features Evan Longoria Too?

Sunday Night baseball is the MLB’s big weekly national showcase. ESPN cherry picks the best series each weekend and puts their considerable production weight (i.e. $$$) behind making a marquee TV show – the bump into a commercial break around the 4th inning featuring Pappy’s was a personal favorite last night. So even though the […]

The Friday Links

We made it through the valley, friends. The NBA Summer League and MLS highlights are over. Back to real games tonight. I’m happy the WNBA got a bit of run on ESPN, but I’m just not as invested in women’s professional hoops as I used to be. Reminds me of an old question asked of […]


Not The Best Week For Adam Wainwright

I’ve been trying to come up with the apropos analogy for Adam Wainwright’s week. He was selected as a Major League Baseball All-Star. And not only did he make it to the most elite level of the sport, he was elite amongst the elite. Selected as the NL starter, he was actually the ELITIST. Think […]


Cardinals Fans Need A Wakeup Call: Time To Toughen Up

I can’t tell you how many All-Star games I’ve watched. I know that I’ve been lucky enough to go to two in person – so two for sure – but I’m pretty sure I’ve watched at least part of every game played over the past 20 something years. And not one was worse for Cardinals […]


Is Fredbird Dating The Blue Jays Mascot?

We don’t have much to go on… but if this were the NY Post, we’d totally classify Fredbird and Ace’s actions in this team mascot photo as ‘canoodling’. While every other mascot maintains some breathing room, Fredbird looks to be in a state of extreme pleasure, while Ace (the Blue Jay’s mascot) has his/her hands […]


Grading The Cardinals 2014 1st Half By Player

The ‘first half’ of the 2014 season has been completed. And while we have this respite from game action, it’s time to break out the ol’ click bait favorites. Today we have a heaping helping of first half-grades… with a gimmick! One sentence and one sentence only on each player’s season so far. PITCHERS Randy […]

Cardinals Started All-Star Break Saturday Night, Apparently

During the World’s Fair of 1893, Algeria wanted to make a good impression, so they sent their delegation to Chicago a few weeks early in order to make sure that they were set up and ready to go ahead of time. They had the days and the months right, but turns out they were an […]

David Ortiz

A Vine Of David Ortiz Twerking A Home Run Against The Cardinals

I don’t know why this Vine exists. I don’t know what this Vine means. But I can’t be 100% sure that this didn’t happen during the 2013 World Series, either. Ortiz was out of his mind and I was probably a few beers deep over at Shannon’s. So if this is just a horrible memory […]
