St. Louis Professional Sports Are Getting Weird In ’16

I don’t know, either. A night after ripping off 10 runs like it was batting practice, the Cardinals come back on Tuesday night and can barely scratch out 3 hits against the Phillies… let alone a single run. As we’re griping about the starting pitching as the reason the Cardinals can’t win games consistently in […]


First Look: John Goodman’s Cardinals Bobble Will Be Walter Sobchak!

When you’re wrong, you’re wrong. About a month ago, I took the Cardinals to task for putting out info about the forthcoming John Goodman bobblehead night that included this blurb: The veteran star of the big and small screen, including Argo, Inside Llewyn Davis, and most recently 10 Cloverfield Lane, will throw the ceremonial first pitch […]


Trying Real Hard To Stay Positive After That April

Generally you don’t go to Twitter for positivity in the face of adversity. Especially when it comes to sports. But Larry Underwood made me feel a tiny bit better after seeing the Cardinals drop to 12-13 on the season Sunday afternoon: April, just like in the seasons above, wasn’t a banner month for the Redbirds. […]


Carlos Martinez Will Start Today; Left Team Friday After Lawsuit Filed

Cardinals starting pitcher Carlos Martinez is still scheduled to start Sunday afternoon after he traveled to Miami Friday amidst a civil lawsuit that was filed against him. The allegations aren’t good. From TMZ: The woman behind the suit, filed in district court in Miami, claims she began a romantic relationship with Martinez in 2012 — […]


The Cardinals Seem To Be Getting Into Moral Victories

The adjustment from hunted to hunter is going to be harder than I anticipated. On Friday night, the Cardinals lost the opener of a three-game set against the Nationals 5 to 4. Mike Leake, the BIG off-season acquisition for the Birds took the L (0-3) and gave up all five runs. The Nation is growing […]


Chris Carpenter, Joe Torre Headline Cardinals Hall of Fame Class of 2016

The St. Louis Cardinals have announced the selections for the team Hall of Fame Class of 2016. Congratulations to the following 4… Chris Carpenter: Fan Selection Chris Carpenter played nine seasons with the Cardinals, won the 2005 Cy Young award and was selected as a National League All Star three times: 2005, 2006 and 2010.  […]


There’s A New Song About Ozzie Smith

I imagine that Ozzie in that pic above is jamming out to some dope beats. Side note: What is that little insignia under the bill of his cap? I can’t be sure, but it looks pretty cool. If he had played in Jeter’s era, that would have been all over a bunch of Nike gear. […]

The Friday Links

Yoga Pics For Instagram + The Friday Links

This one is going to hit home for you if you’re on social media (specifically FB or IG) a bunch. How we got to April 26th without this bit being done before is a minor miracle, IMO. Or maybe it has been and I missed it. Either way: Also, I felt this Prince cover […]


Aledmys Diaz Is Officially MLB’s Top Current Hitter

We knew that Aledmys Diaz was on fire at the plate in 2016. But until last night’s 11-4 win over Arizona, the Cardinals shortstop did not have enough at-bats to qualify as a league leader. He does now. And his .468 (FOUR SIXTY EIGHT) average is the top mark in all of baseball. Diaz could go 1 […]

How Do You Feel About The Word Suck?

It was a busy week around HQ and some important stories fell through the cracks. None bigger than the ‘suck-saga’. The Cubs played in St. Louis last Monday thru Wednesday. They won 2 times, 3 if you want to count Joe Maddon changing the rules at Busch Stadium to allow the word ‘suck’ to be […]


The Cardinals Are Quickly Entering The Bernie Sanders Zone

I’m going to make a dramatic statement. And it (mostly) has nothing to do with politics. +++++ Bernie Sanders has tapped into a piece of the American electorate than many doubted were out there en masse. Against long odds he has hung in the race for the Democratic party’s nomination for President of the United […]


Can The Cardinals Fight Off Mediocrity?

The Cardinals have fallen 4 games in arrears of the Cubs for the NL Central division lead and stand on the precipice of moving below .500 as they approach the first 1/10th of the season mark. The Cardinals are 0-3 against the Pirates and 0-2 against the Cubs in 2016. They have scored a combined […]


Cardinals Fall To Pieces Against The Cubs… Again

It was all coming back. Last October, I had the pleasure (pain) of going to NLDS GM3 where the Cubs hit 6 home runs and not only beat the ever-loving stuffing out of the Cardinals but signaled to the baseball world that the future Cubs weren’t coming… they were here. After the game I took […]
