Cardinals Rank #16 On ‘Stadium Index’ For Fans

We get stuff in our ‘inbox’. Sometimes that stuff is interesting. Here’s an infograph from the people at with something called the ‘Stadium Index’ where they looked at the prices for 2 premium tickets, 4 hot dogs and 4 drinks across all 30 MLB stadiums. They did not pay for this post, they just sent […]


A Very Good 2 And 2 Split

After Friday afternoon’s 13-2 mollywhopping, you could feel the gravitational pull of the drain the Cardinals’ season was circling. They’d just lost their second star player to a broken hand after being hit by a pitch. Their ace had just turned in the


Everything Ends Badly, Otherwise It Wouldn’t End

1-1. 2 outs. No runners on. Top of the 10th. Cubs reliever Mike Montgomery throws a high and tight 94 MPH fastball to Matt Holliday that the Cardinals slugger tries to awkwardly dodge. He can’t get out of the way and the ball fractures his right thumb. A season on the brink just shuffled closer […]


August Has Come; Brought Injuries To Cardinals

UPDATE (8/12): Matt Holliday has been added to this list with a fractured right thumb. +++++ The dog days of summer are here. Seems like every other day I’m getting a note from the Cardinals telling me that they’ve put another player on the disabled list (DL). The MLB transaction wire in August proves my […]


Baseball Is Hard: The Beginning, The Middle & The End

Alex Reyes made his Major League Baseball debut last night for the St. Louis Cardinals. The hype couldn’t get hype-ier. Fans were at 100. And then Reyes took the mound and over delivered. He gave us 101, to be exact… Normally a brutal loss to a bad team at home in the midst of chasing a playoff […]


Should The Cardinals Sign Tim Tebow?

What? You thought we weren’t going to ride this clickbait train like every other sports blog in the universe? I mean you’re here right now. You’re reading this. If anything, YOU’RE responsible for Mr. Tebow’s foray into baseball. Kidding. It’s on us. If Tebow signs with St. Louis – WOOO BOY. This blog might crack […]


This Team

Down 4-0 in the bottom of the 9th to the woeful Cincinnati Reds, the Cardinals batted around and won Monday night’s game 5-4 with a walk-off hit by pitch. This team. 2 singles. 3 walks. 2 hit by pitches. 5 runs. All in the bottom of the 9th. Whatever it takes! Here’s all the game analysis […]


John Gotti Just Got Arrested While Wearing A Cardinals Hat

After a meek, uninspired 7-0 loss to the very bad Reds, the Cardinals street cred was low. Real low. Then John Gotti, grandson and namesake of the late ‘Teflon Don’ John Gotti, got arrested while wearing a pretty sweet St. Louis Cardinals hat. In what the NYPD are dubbing ‘Operation Beach Party’, Gotti got popped with […]

Decoraters wait for the St. Louis Rams Super Bowl banner to lower from the rafters of the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis on January 14, 2016. Signage is being removed from the former home of the St. Louis Rams after owner Stan Kroenke announced the team will return to Los Angeles for the 2016 season and will eventually play in a new stadium. The Rams arrived in St. Louis from Los Angeles in 1995, winning the Super Bowl in 2000, but in recent years have had the lowest attendance in the NFL.  Photo by Bill Greenblatt/UPI

The Cardinals Are Letting Us Down When We Need Them The Most

January 13th. After 21 seasons in St. Louis, the NFL announces the Rams will play in Los Angeles for 2016 and beyond. Years of plotting by owner Stan Kroenke have paid off. He instantly doubles (at least) the team’s valuation, moves into a glamorous media market ripe with opportunity and gains approval to build/occupy a new […]


Ozzie Smith’s Yellow Brick Road Front Door

We have a contact form at Cards Diaspora, believe it or not. Hardly ever gets used, since everyone is so busy in the comment section of each post creating the vibrant community that is CD NATIOOOOON! But from time to time, we’ll get a note. Earlier this AM, a PR firm representing Coldwell Banker sent […]


The Cardinals Have The Correct Record

WAR. It’s a good metric. A fine metric. And with 2/3 of the ’16 season already in the books, it’s a fair indicator of how players are playing. Here are the top 5 MLB WAR leaders according to ESPN: Mike Trout (6.77) Jose Altuve (6.26) Josh Donaldson (5.75) Mookie Betts (5.52) Kris Bryant (5.14) In […]
