The Jaime Garcia Injury Drama Has Boiled Over

In a season that has an unexpected amount of on-field tumult, frustrations have crept outside the lines and boiled over into the media. “Do I sound frustrated? Do I look frustrated? I am frustrated.” That’s a John Mozeliak quote from Joe Strauss’ column today in the Post-Dispatch. He’s specifically talking about Jaime Garcia’s decision to […]

Happy Birthday, Buddy

Yes, you. We’re buddies, right? Well Happy Birthday! Thanks for taking the time to click on The CD during your holiday weekend. I don’t know what you were expecting from this particular post, but if it was mildly interesting 4th of July facts… you’re in luck. To wit: July Fourth is the “biggest hot dog […]

Here’s To The Dapper Kid @ The Cardinals / Giants Game

1.89 ERA. Impressive? Sure is, Mr. Wainwright. But one can’t help but wonder if your performance last night wasn’t inspired, at least a little, by the young man behind home plate in a stovepipe hat and bow-tie? You weren’t the only one putting on a show. Kudos to that kid. And his stylist.

CAPS

Cardinals Sartorialist: 2014 All Star Game Hats

This is the new cap that St. Louis Cardinals All-Stars will wear during the game. I get it. The Cardinals aren’t making this decision for themselves. They’re part of the MLB merchandise machine. They’re just sending out the e-mails containing this cap because MLB mandated they send out the e-mails. But is anyone trying that […]

Cardinal Way

Cardinals Dissapoint On ‘The Way’ Power Rankings

Baseball Prospectus has recently created The [Your Team Name Here] Way Power Rankings. Oh. The Cardinals are so going to dominate this, right? Tell me that they’re #1. They have to be #1. Mr. Sam Miller explain what all this is about and just how much the Cardinals dominated: So the Cardinal Way stuff has […]

WACHA MODEL

Michael Wacha Is Now A Model

Michael Wacha is now a model, apparently. (Insert joke about having more free time since he’s on DL, etc., etc., etc.) In this Month’s issue of GQ Magazine (the one with Emily Ratajkowski on the cover – yes, the same girl that was in Robin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines Video’), we find a special advertising section […]

Blogger Event

The UCB ‘Blogger Day @ Busch Stadium’

As much as we can all get caught up with the day to day trials and tribulations with the Cardinals, it’s easy to forget that overall the organization is first class. The Sunday before last, the team held their annual ‘Blogger Event’ where they gather all us nerds up for an afternoon of light schmoozing […]

Two Teams Desperate For Some Winning

When the San Fransisco Giants visited Busch Stadium at the end of May, they were the best team in baseball and treated the Cardinals as such. They scored 23 runs over 4 games, claiming 3 wins and hung Adam Wainwright with one of his two brutal losses of the season. Many fans used that series […]

Halfway

The Cardinals Drag Themselves Over The Halfway Point

4 runs. In 4 games. If you’re the super generous type, you’d point out that the Cardinals only got shut out 50% of the games in LA. Unfortunately, we’re more bottom line driven around here. If things break just right for the Cardinals in San Francisco, then the boys will actually be closer to catching […]

Freak Out

So Derrick Goold Now Has Us All Freaked

Derrick Goold is a good writer. And I’m always happy when a reporter gets information that’s pertinent, timely and gives context to something I’m interested in – like the Cardinals. But this AM when I got on the Post-Dispatch’s sports section and saw this little call-out box? Oh. Oh no. First of all, Goold writes […]

Danger Zone

Cardinals Absolutely Tenderized Saturday Night

Battered. Thrashed. Hammered. You can pick your own adjective, but after 9 innings of brutal play, the Dodgers stood over the shell of a championship team and delivered an emphatic no-no finger. Pick you own indignity: Mark Ellis now closer to .185 than .200 with his regular 0-fer. Lance Lynn mustering 2 innings and 6 […]
