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, […]

A Tough Night For STL Sports Fans Made Tougher By Cardinals

For the first time since 1994, the Rams were playing real NFL games and calling a city other than St. Louis home. You’re all probably at different stages along the recovery continuum. For me personally? I’ve moved on. I didn’t watch Hard Knocks. I Twitter


Mike Matheny Sees Your Raise And Goes All In

It’s not a sexy stance: Mike Matheny is an average manager. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. In fact, most MLB managers are average. This is from an article on FiveThirtyEight that analyzed past managerial performance: Based on my analysis, 95 percent of all managers are worth somewhere between -2 and +2 wins per […]


10 Games Over .500 Is The Impossible Dream

The St. Louis Cardinals are now 0-7 in games where they could have gotten to 10 games over .500 for the first time in 2016. 0-7! You do anything 162 times in a single year and things are going to get weird, hard to explain. For whatever reason, when the Cardinals step to the edge […]


How About That Baseball Game?

Immediately after the game, the TV voice of the Cardinals had this to say: “It is the win of the year for St. Louis.” – Dan McLaughlin I’m not going to argue with Dan. The Cardinals 9-7 win had pretty much every single thing you’d want from a regular season baseball game… and then some. […]

Can The Cardinals Deliver A Knockout Blow This Week?

Nothing has come easy for the Cardinals in 2016. They have the most HRs in the NL (196), but they’re 30-37 at home. They have the exact same amount of hits as the Cubs (1201), but trail them by 16.5 games in the NL Central. THREE of their best players have been
