This Here NL Central Is Stout

The Cardinals play in the NL Central. So do 2 of the other 3 best teams in baseball. Will you take a look at this table? Look at it! That’s ridiculous. The third place team is getting the cover of SI! There’s no deep point to this post. The possibility exists that the Cardinals will […]


Cardinals Losing Ground In NL Central

The Cardinals staved off what could have been a disastrous weekend by beating the San Diego Padres 10-3 on Sunday afternoon. Once again, the St. Louis professional baseball team starts the week as the leaders in the NL Central. Will we be able to say the same thing next Monday? Probably, but… The Cubs have […]

The Friday Links

Hard Hittin’ Mark Whiten + The Friday Links

So I was cruising around the internet when I came across a video series that is doing with baseball writer Rick Hummel where he talks about memorable moments from his career. In this one, he remembers Mark Whiten’s 4 home run game. It’s worth the watch, if only for the anecdote of Joe Torre […]


Cardinals Needed Brandon Moss To Shine… He Didn’t

When a team records 2 hits over the course of 9 innings, it’s hard to focus the sight on one player in particular. Very few times in the history of baseball has a team won a game with 2 hits. But last night the Cardinals were #Mossed. 0-2 with RISP, Moss batted cleanup and finished […]


The Data On The Cardinals Starting Outfield

Jason Heyward isn’t playing tonight against SF due to a sore hamstring that he tweaked during Monday night’s game against the Giants. Sigh. Here is the lineup, in which Brandon Moss is hitting cleanup: Here is the data on your starting OF: Thomas Pham: 52 PAs | .170 AVG | 1 HR | 3 RBI […]


The Cardinals Win But Storm Clouds Forming On Horizon

The Cardinals beat the San Francisco Giants on Monday night in Busch Stadium to push to 34 games over .500 and 45-18 at home. With 7 games against the sub .500 Padres and Diamondbacks on the schedule after 2 more with the Giants, the Cardinals could ensure a winning season by getting to 82 wins by […]


Cardinals Not Allowed To Have Any Power; Grichuk To DL

The St. Louis Cardinals have 97 home runs on the season. Randal Grichuk (15), Matt Holliday (4), Matt Adams (4) and Jon Jay (1) have combined for 24 of those 97 or 24.7% of the team total. All four players are now on the DL. This, my friends, is not good news. In fact, it’s […]

According to, the 2016 Cardinals schedule is almost finalized. You have 2 big questions, so let’s get those out of the way now: 1) Will Pujols be coming to St. Louis?  No. 2) Will the Cardinals have any weekend home games against the Cubs? No. The schedule makers won’t comment on the the 2016 slate […]


Cardinals Get Creamed Twice In Same Game – Somehow It Was Still Watchable

It’s a Thursday night in the middle of August. The Cardinals are 33 games above .500, 7 games up on the division and going for a sweep against the team that is ‘chasing’ them. Lance Lynn gets the start and lasts 2/3 of an inning before getting pulled. The Cardinals are down 7 runs before […]
