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 […]


The Best Rivalry In Baseball Is Back And More Competitive Than Ever

The Internet is a big place and if you’re looking for detailed recaps of the Reds series this past weekend, I have faith that you can find some. The Cardinals won the series. Probably should have swept, but Wainwright still hasn’t found his form. He’s confident he will. He’s earned out trust. So we good? […]


Total Guesses On What’s Going On With The Cardinals Social Media Accounts

It’s been a rough week for the Cardinals social accounts. Specifically, they can’t seem to tell the difference between Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati and Busch Stadium in St. Louis. I mean, when you’re making front page news on STLToday just below Sir Paul, chances are the weekend can’t get here soon enough: On […]

A Great Prank + The Friday Links

Sometimes you have an idea. And it’s a great idea. Taking fake book covers on the subway is a great idea. Not only that, but in a YouTube world where every prank video has to be more over the top than the last, sometimes a muted approach is appreciated. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jFxu9dOO4zk Even better the second time, […]

A Loss Won’t Kill The Cardinals; Losses Will

Trust me, I know. The Cubs have started this season on an absolute tear. And have already pushed the Cardinals into a 3 game hole in the NL Central. After the Reds jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the first last night, the Cubs proceeded to pound out 9 runs over the next four […]


All Of A Sudden The Cardinals Starting Pitching Safety Net Is Shrinking

When Lance Lynn underwent Tommy John surgery, the Cardinals appeared to be as prepared as a major league team can be to absorb the loss of an entire season from a starting pitcher slash innings eater. Adam Wainwright was back in the rotation after missing most of the 2015 season. They went out and signed […]


Cardinals Fans Are Proving Too Passionate For Good Wi-Fi

Cardinals Nation has never been shy about patting itself on the collective back. Sometimes, though, it’s warranted. Perry Yee is the Cardinals IT Director and he was recently asked about Wi-Fi connectivity at Busch Stadium. More specifically, why Busch Stadium still doesn’t have full Wi-Fi up and running for the fans. In his answer lies […]

Everything You Need To Know For The Cardinals Home Opener 2016

The Cardinals sent over what has to be one of the longest press releases in the history of press releases last week. I ran it through Microsoft Word and it clocked in at 5,270 words. It’s Opening Day at Busch Stadium. You want the good stuff. You don’t have time for Infinite Jest. So let’s […]


The Cardinals Have Not Been Good In Home Openers @ Busch Stadium III

Last week we talked about the Cardinals struggles on Opening Day of the season. With their loss to the Pirates 8 days ago, the Cardinals are now 2-8 in the last 10 first games. Not to be Deb Downer about home openers as well… but since Busch Stadium opened in 2006, the Cardinals are 3-7 […]


Cardinals Sweep Braves – Move Back To .500 For The Season

The Cardinals brought back stasis to the universe by sweeping the Atlanta Braves in a three game set and getting back to .500 on the season. We learned many things over the first full weekend of regular season games, but none more concretely than these two teams would probably take a hour to cook minute […]


Learning How To Live As Baseball’s Evil Empire

I went to a high school that was about 20-25 minutes away from where I grew up. Met some of my best friends to this day there. Made a million great memories. But. BUT. The first year and a half or so of my time at this high school was awful. I think I knew […]


The Cardinals ‘Ultimate Fan Video Contest’ Winner Is The Same Winner As Last Year

Let me be clear: I am not here to hate. The Cardinals held their 2nd annual ‘Ultimate Fan Video Contest’ for a chance to have an “ultimate opening day experience”. This is your winner: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=filnvw-iuQQ That video was made by one Robbie Sondag. And Mr. Sondag will (presumably) be enjoying a nice little opening day […]
