Cardinals Fans Keep Hoping for Good Things; Get Stranger Things Instead

The Cardinals will have a losing record at home in 2016. This is on the heels of 4 consecutive 50 win seasons when the team plays in St. Louis. Currently they are 32-39 with 10 games left at Busch Stadium. They would need to go 9-1 over those 10 to get to 41-40. The Last time […]

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

We Got A New Mick Fennell Backflipping Video

The Cardinals drafted Mick Fennell in the 22nd round of the 2016 draft from the very confusingly named California University of Pennslyvania. Why are we all sitting around talking about a 22nd round draft pick who’s played 37 games of low A ball in the middle of a Wild Card race? Well, because the dude […]

If The Cubs Keep Winning The Cardinals Make The Playoffs

The Cardinals have 70 wins after a nail-biter in Milwaukee tonight. They currently hold a 2.5 game lead for the 2nd Wild Card spot in the National League. If you’re nervous about the Cardinals playoff chances, let me make you feel better… the Cubs are really, really good. The Cubs? The Cubs. Here are the current […]

Kolten Wong Gives The Angry Email Interview

Today you’re going to read Rob Rains’ interview/piece on STL Sports Page and feel all sorts of emotions. You’ll probably be a little sad (dude has pretty much been buried on the bench). You’ll probably be a little confused (why is he giving this interview now, exactly?). You’ll probably be a little mad (do the […]

The Cardinals Are Really Going To Have A Losing Home Record In 2016?

I didn’t think they were really going to do it. Trying to make the playoffs with a losing record at home is like trying to use Ryan Lochte as character reference on your resume – you may still get the job, sure, but it’s probably not helping your case. Too soon? But here we are. […]

Carlos Martinez Is Getting Real Close

Mark Saxon of ESPN wrote an article on Carlos Martinez earlier this month that included this anecdote about a conversation he and Mike Matheny had after the day after his worst start of the season (versus ATL) : [A] photographer snapped a shot of Matheny having an animated conversation with Martinez. The manager, who speaks […]

Jaime Garcia’s Consistant Inconsistency Continues

After his August 10th start against the Cincinnati Reds, everything was swell. Jaime Garcia had just twirled a second consecutive gem, going 8 innings and surrendering only 2 earned runs. His bloated ERA was finally pushed below 4.00 (3.93, to be exact) while also tipping his record into the positive (9-8). Cardinals fans were cautiously optimistic that […]
