Merry Clinchmas, Cardinals Fans?

She was adamant. And so the big man acquiesced, agreeing, that yes, the Cardinals perhaps needed a day off. Mother Nature had made her case. She tends to be right more often than not. Maybe she’s a big Birds fan. Maybe she’s just benevolent. But after Monday’s grinding win that included a scary injury to […]

It Takes 2! (a.k.a. It Takes Red Schoendienst!) - I #LoveRed2 - YouTube

5 Thoughts On This New Red Schoendienst Parody Song

This. This is real. I promise you that isn’t a fake Twitter account. That is a St. Louis Cardinals Baseball Club LLC endorsed parody song/video about Hall of Fame member Red Schoendienst. Here it is on YouTube: 1) Red has been in uniform for 70 years. ‘It Takes Two’, the Rob Base and DJ […]


Cardinals Fan Shot Leaving Game At Busch Stadium

There’s no other way to say it – this story sucks. Christopher Sanna went to watch the Cardinals play the Brewers last Friday with his girlfriend to celebrate his mom’s 60th birthday. He left the game with about an inning left since he had to work the next day and walked to his car parked […]


The Most Grueling Win Of 2015 Pushes Cards To Brink Of NL Central Crown

Maybe you had to work. Perhaps you had a date. Could have taken your kids to Taylor Swift. But if you missed the Cardinals/Pirates game and saw the 3-0 final, you might think it was a pretty routine game. It was not. In fact, it was the most grinding win of 2015. Maybe ever. A […]


The Cardinals Are The Wright Brothers Of Baseball

Neither Orville nor Wilbur Wright have walked the Earth since 1948 when Orville passed away (Wilber in 1912). But I bet if they were around, they’d find 25 kindred spirits hanging around this October in the St. Louis Cardinals dugout. These guys weren’t titans of industry or silver spoons – Orville and Wilbur Wright were […]


Predicting The 2015 NLDS 25 Man Roster

UPDATE (9/28 @ 10:34p): So Carlos Martinez is out for the rest of the season, Yadier Molina is now questionable/doubtful for the NLDS and Stephen Piscotty’s prognosis is still forthcoming. I guess what I’m saying is take all this with a grain of salt if you’re just now reading this. +++++ As noted earlier in the […]

The Friday Links

Reply All + The Friday Links

You remember The Ripoff Report? It’s still around. Even after being usurped in ubiquity by the likes of Yelp and TripAdvisor and several other review sites. I hadn’t thought about this website for a while, but ‘Reply All’ did a podcast on the site (and founder) that I thought everybody might be interested in. Good […]


Cardinals Embracing iPad In Dugout – Are Eye Coaches Next?

So the Cardinals are using an iPad in the dugout. If you’ve noticed any of the coaches looking at a tablet the past few games, yes – it’s allowed by MLB. The Cardinals are one of a few teams that have taken baseball’s allowance of iPads in the dugout during game action and ran with […]


The NL Central Is Making A Run At Best Division Ever Title

The NL Central is cray. The Cardinals magic number only dropped to 8 last night after posting their 3rd straight win and 95th on the season with 11 games remaining. Why? Because the Pirates won their 4th straight and the Cubs won their 2nd straight. At this point, the NL Central isn’t good. It’s historically […]


Yogi Berra Has Died (1925-2015)

Part of my real job – not an insignificant part – is to go out and meet with people. About what, specifically, is unimportant. But what is important is that I have a quiver of off-the-shelf small talk arrows strapped to my back that I can pull out and fire on target pending a brief reading […]
