Is It September Already?

We’ve come a long way since October 19th 2006. You might remember that day – I know it was a pretty good one if you’re hanging around these parts of the Internet. Doesn’t seem like that long ago, after all. Wainwright was on the mound tonight same as he was then. But Citi Field didn’t […]

Albert Pujols Hits 500th Home Run

El Hombre always had a knack for the dramatic.

He becomes the first player in MLB history to hit his 499th and 500th home run in the same game. Congratulations, sir. You’ve reached a milestone.

Off The Bat

MLB Crush Monday: Stan Musial?

MTV2 and MLB have partnered up for a show called ‘Off The Bat From The MLB Fan Cave‘. It’s hosted by Fat Joe and Melanie Iglesias. While it’s good to see Mr. Joe get work again and not have an American Institution ‘lean back‘ into obscurity, let’s be honest… people are tuning in to look […]


St. Louis Sucks When It Comes To Cabs

Lyft has launched in St. Louis. (UPDATE: And already has a court order to shut down.) And we’re going to talk about rideharing services. But if you need a primer on what ridesharing services are, how they work and what some advantages and disadvantages when using them are, I’ve made a little 101 section at […]


NY Times Profiles Yadier Molina

The name of the piece is “From Behind the Plate, a Dutiful Master Orchestrates The Cardinals”. At this point, you can pretty much rest assured that this isn’t your typical Cardinals media fare. You’d be right, because yesterday the NY Times’ Tyler Kepner profiles Yadier Molina and got some interesting information: Brian McCann, a 7-time […]


Defense Hopefully Doesn’t Win Championships

Shane Robinson seems like a nice guy. How can anyone so tiny and scrappy not be super humble and ready to help your grandmother across the street at all times? If you asked him for his autograph, he’d probably return the favor by asking if he could help file your taxes. But if we’re trying […]

Jon Jay

In Appreciation Of Jon Jay

Jon Jay was a good player in 2013. He appeared in 157 game for the Cardinals, collecting 151 hits, 52 walks and generating 75 runs. No, you won’t be bouncing a grand-kid on your lap telling them about the ’13 Jay season, but considering he made $524,000 and the Cardinals won 97 games plus the […]


To Pitch A Gem No One Saw

Adam Wainwright just pitched the game of the year by a Cardinals pitcher. Complete game shutout. 8 strikeouts. Harper and Werth were made to look feckless, combining for an 0-8 night. Just a master class against an elite NL contender to run his record to 3-1 and his ERA to 1.80. Just curious… did anyone […]

Friday Links

The Friday Links

Somehow it’s Friday again. We’ll just go ahead and leave this clip RIGHT HERE and assume that you know all other links below are amusing, but ultimately inferior. Now, the Friday Links… Happy Easter! LINK HERE Go shawty. LINK HERE Drum solo. LINK HERE Surfboard. LINK HERE You need a good cry? LINK HERE You’ve […]

Pujols HR

Albert Pujols Approaches 500 HRs… And Nobody Cares

Sometimes you read a piece and it says everything you feel. Bob Nightengale does just that with an article from the USA Today on Albert Pujols and his pending milestone 500th homerun. The reason the Angels were able to justify (at least to themselves) that Albert was worth the 240 million dollar contract they offered […]


Joe Kelly Removed From Game With Hamstring Injury

Joe Kelly. He ‘won’ the 5th starter position in Spring Training, beating out Carlos Martinez, who had the better statistical camp. The 5th spot was opened up with a injury to Jamie Garcia. Kelly appears to have pulled his hamstring in the bottom of the 4th inning of today’s game against the Brewers trying to […]

Ticket Stub

Forbes Says Yankess @ Cardinals Is MLB’s Most Expensive Ticket

It’s Jeeetah. It’s CC. It’s the New York Freakin’ Yankees. And they’re coming to St. Louis May 24-26th to make sure that Mr. Jeter gets a lifetime supply of Imo’s gift cards and miniature arches to put in his overnight party gift bags. Interest in ‘The Captain’ and his teammates is red-hot. According to Forbes […]
