The Most Unlikely Win Of 2016… So Far

The Cardinals have won 54 games in 2016. All wins are not created equal and win #54 was the most improbable of 2016. While we’re all over here yakking about Aroldis Chapman and his 105 MPH fastball, the best closer in baseball has been shutting teams down in historic fashion. Jeurys Familia is the Omega. […]

Cardinals Fans Are Probably Going To See History This Weekend

UPDATE (7/31 @6p): Cardinals fans did not see history this weekend. Ichiro did not get his 3,000th hit. +++++ Last night Ichiro posted the 2,997th hit of his MLB career. And with a four-game series against the Marlins in Miami this upcoming weekend, there is a good chance that Ichiro will become the 30th member of […]

Cardinals Lose Game, Series To Dodgers

Timing is everything. On Friday evening the Memphis Redbirds postponed their game against the Iowa Cubs and Mike Mayers and his teammates got an unexpected night off. Later in the night/early morning, the Cardinals engaged in a 16 inning affair with the Dodgers. Since they played a doubleheader earlier in the week and used Tyler […]

Was That The Turning Point?

The Cardinals were following a familiar script on Thursday night. On the precipice of really building some momentum (especially at home) and sweeping the San Diego Padres, the wheels were coming off. They were in the friendly embrace of Busch Stadium, facing a poor team, throwing their ace – a real peach of scenario for a […]

Jedd Gyorko, Everyone

Breakups are never easy. And, just like in real life, professional baseball break-ups are pretty common. Sometimes it’s by choice (hello, Jason Heyward), sometimes it’s not (Tulo is totally fine now) and every once in a while, the tears are all for naught. Over 162 games it’s hard to get yourself capital F capital U […]

Someone Created A Minecraft Version Of Busch Stadium

As if the audience for this site weren’t small enough, we’re going to go VERY niche and make a post on St. Louis Cardinals Minecraft. Specifically, a video I found deep in the bowels of YouTube that tours a detailed version of Busch Stadium that someone has created. If you’re not familiar with Minecraft, it’s pretty […]

A Reader Shares His Adron Chambers Interview With Us

If you’re reading this site, you’re one of the few and not proud. The opposite of the Marines. But I promise you there are actually like 10 of you out there. FINE… 3 of you and 7 bots. You won’t admit it to anyone, but Google Analytics does not lie. Over the weekend we got a […]

Booze & Woman & Puppies + The Friday Links

The internet is a big place and sometimes you miss things. One of the benefits of Facebook is that there’s always someone you know that lags about 8-12 months behind in pop culture. And when those people get a few extra minutes, they’ll get on The Book and share. Usually photos they’ve had on their […]

The St. Louis Cardinals First Half – In Stats

Here are some first-half stats: VEGAS Vegas had the over/under of Cardinals wins at 87.5 when the season started. Currently the team stands at 46-42, which is an 85 win pace. However, if you wanted to be the over/under for the second half of the season, Vegas is slightly bullish and has the line at […]

Home field advantage in the 2016 World Series will go to the American League due to their 4-2 victory in the All-Star Game last night. Eric Hosmer of the Kansas City Royals was named MVP and as a reward was presented a ‘midnight black’ Chevy Colorado truck (which he promptly gave to his dad) valued at […]

Alex Reyes’ 1st Inning Was Highlight Of Cardinals All-Star Week

With all due respect to Aledmys Diaz and whatever he may do in his (most likely short) appearance during tonight’s MLB All-Star Game… the highlight of the week for Cardinals fans has already happened. Alex Reyes got the start for the ‘World’ team in the MLB Futures game. It went well. Very well. Very, very […]
