NLDS GM 3: The Bulldog You Didn’t Know You Wanted

July 31st. The Cardinals were stagnant. The juggernaut that St. Louis expected to see had failed to launch. And in its place was a shell of the NL Championship team that looked poised for a sustained run 10 months prior. Injuries (Wacha, Garcia), dead arms (Wainwright) and inconsistency (Miller) were starting to take a toll […]


An NLDS Game Via Tweets

Lazy? You bet. But why not take someone else’s hard work and re-purpose it here? Tweets during post-season games come fast and furious. So this is more like a public service than anything. This. Will. Never. Happen. Dodgers fans hate Matt Carpenter. Still breaks our heart just a little. He misses Matty Holliday so bad. […]


Cards/Dodgers Is the New Yankees/Sox

Not so long ago, you couldn’t get away with not seeing he Yankees & Sox play baseball. After the Red Sox stunned the baseball world (including their own fans) by coming back from a 3-0 deficit in the 2004 ALCS, the programmers at ESPN and FOX went whole hog on the series anytime they played. […]


NLDS GM 2: The Cardinals Are The Floyd Mayweather Of Baseball

The Cardinals are still determining where the 2014 team will rank in the pantheon of great teams. And, yes, considering that only 27 Cardinals teams have made the playoffs in their 114 year history, this team has already become of the greats. Can they crack the top 11? Time will tell. If they do, time […]


NY Times: Cardinals Don’t “Deserve” To Win World Series

Cardinals fans are getting trolled on the daily at this point. Now the ‘Old Gray Lady’ has joined Deadspin and the Wall Street Journal on the dogpile, claiming that of all the teams left in the MLB Playoffs, the Cardinals deserve to win the World Series the least. How did they determine this? But a […]


NLDS GM 1: “I Don’t Believe What I Just Saw”

Why not Oscar Taveras? The wunder-prospect that took too long to call-up, that took a trade to get in the line-up, that never really took to hitting MLB pitching and found himself as a bench player during the end of the season… why couldn’t he come in and with one swing erase a season of […]


5 Super Bold Predictions: LAD vs STL NLDS

You know who I really feel sorry for? The two Cardinals fans that got plucked off the AP photo wire for Deadspin’s semi-regular trolling of ‘The Nation’. I just went on Facebook. Every other post is about Drew Magary’s article called “The Mayor Of St. Louis Is A Dipshit”. You can read the whole article; […]

The Friday Links

By now you’ve heard of Tove Lo. If not, you’ve heard her song ‘Habits‘ which is currently in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100. On Tuesday, she dropped her full-album. She’s about 6 months away from full-on big pop stardom. Why? 1 – The album is great. 2 – Katy Perry just booked […]


The World Looks Forward To Cardinals Vs Dodgers

The hate is real. And the transformation into America’s most loathed team has unintended side-effects… including the fact that they’re now the the star of the show. 287K+ votes isn’t a small sample size for this ESPN SportsNation poll. The results, though? Conclusive. America (and the world) are looking forward to the Cardinals vs Dodgers […]


The Wild Card Round Is Good

We got the best and worst of the Wild Card round the past two days. On one hand, the insta-game 7 in KC was everything you could want in a baseball game (plus horrible managing!). On the other, a scrappy Pittsburgh team that could have caused some serious damage in the playoffs was decisively ousted […]


CD Report: Inside Kauffman Stadium For An Instant Classic

Friends, That was a classic. How do we know? Ned Yost won the Royals’ first playoff game in 29 years with a super-dramatic 12th inning walk-off while also starring on Twitter with the hashtag #FireNedYost – that’s a first. Luckily, we had Cardinals fan (and KC resident) – John Bucher attend the game and he […]


Jason Motte Nominated For Roberto Clemente Award

The Roberto Clemente Award is given annually to the Major League Baseball (MLB) player who “best exemplifies the game of baseball, sportsmanship, community involvement and the individual’s contribution to his team”, as voted on by baseball fans and members of the media.

Wall Street Journal Says Cardinals Are Most Hateable Playoff Team

And it’s not even close. We’ve been cautioning people that the transition from America’s ‘Most Hated Baseball Team’ has been ongoing for a few years now. But with the last vestige of Yankees greatness (and hate) Derek Jeter gone… the time has come for Cardinal nation to assume the mantle: I mean, If I weren’t […]
