Game 130: It’s Jon Jay’s World & We’re Just Living In It

Just like we said at the beginning of the season… as long as Jon Jay and John Lackey are playing up to expectations, this Cardinals team is going to be just fine. What? You don’t believe it? Imagine seeing that Tweet in April or May and wondering just how in the hell that became the […]


Ranked: Taylor Swift’s Looks In ‘Shake It Off’ Video

There are 2 types of people in this world… 1) The people that realize Taylor Swift is the most talented human being that has ever inhabited the universe, rendering any and all future procreation completely unnecessary. 2) Mouth breathers. At Cards Diaspora, we’ve long be on Team T-Swizzle. So while you might have tuned into […]


Cardinals Go Down Easy & Quick

Did the Cardinals eat some bad cheesesteaks and just want to get out of town? Kind of had the look of it Sunday afternoon in Philadelphia as Justin Masterson got run after 3 innings and the offense was feckless against Jerome Williams and his 5+ ERA. In all ended – mercifully – after only 2:33. […]

An Evening With Tony LaRussa? Now?

I’m not here to spend your money. More appropriately, prevent you from spending your money. But I’m just not sure what the Cardinals are thinking with this particular promotion: Tony LaRussa works for another MLB team that plays in the same league as the Cardinals. He is being paid, at least how it relates to […]

This Might Actually Be Good For Wainwright

Pipeshots on pipeshots on pipeshots. Mr. Wainwright, the Cardinals ace, was tagged with his 8th loss of the 2014 season in Philadelphia Friday night. It wasn’t gruesome, but it wasn’t close to what the former Cy Young candidate is capable of, especially against a bad team, ESPECIALLY when he’s spotted a 4 run lead before […]


As Bad As 2014 Has Felt At Times – Remember The Phillies

The Phillies stink. 56-71 heading into a weekend series with the Cardinals, Philadelphia has long been out of the hunt for a playoff spot. But unlike the Cubs or Astros that are selling their fans on crap seasons with the promise that their young talent will be awesome in a few years… the Phillies are […]

The Friday Links

The Friday Links

A while back, we predicted all the ‘songs of summer’ and I’m here to report that with a couple weeks left in the season – well – we pretty much nailed it. Here’s how Billboard has the songs ranked – LINK HERE The only real surprises? Sam Smith really took off out of nowhere. And […]


Jon Jay Is Carrying The Cardinals On His Back

Jon Jay, man. Dude was left for dead on the Cardinals roster this spring. With the addition of Peter Bourjos and the ascendance of Oscar Taveras – there just wasn’t going to be much PT for our friend. As they push down the homestretch, the Cardinals have moved to 12 games over .500 and nights […]

Game 123: Best Told Through Tweets

First, we learned that Matt Holliday was going to ride the pine. A mental day off. But it didn’t matter early or late, since STL’s very own Abe Lincoln… err… Matt Carpenter was on a tear. The Padres weren’t about to be bullied, though. And they scored runs of their own. Their fans were pumped […]


The Sophomore Slump Is Real; Siegrist Proves It To Us All

Some people think it’s not real. It’s got a whole page of definitions on Urban Dictionary and it is to music critics what ‘clutch hitting’ is to baseball – but ‘The Sophomore Slump‘ idea is gaining validity. As Cardinal fans, I think we were pretty much in denial. But with only 40 games to go […]
