In 2014, the Cardinals lost 3 straight games and were eliminated in the National League Championship Series by the the San Francisco Giants. In 2015, the Cardinals lost 3 straight […]


Did We Just Watch The Changing Of The Guard In The NL Central?

Our most honest self isn’t someone we want to see tonight. Or tomorrow. The rest of the month, for sure. +++++ The Cubs have beaten the Cardinals 3 games to 1 in the NLDS and will move on to face the Mets or Dodgers in the National League Championship Series, ending a run of 4 […]


Cardinals Rolling Out All The Offers In Case The Season Ends Today

Someone might want to holler at the Cardinals marketing department and let them know the Cardinals lost last night. We’re all collectively trying to regroup and get pumped back up for the game this PM. It’s not going to be easy – but I think we’ll get there. Probably around 2 or so, if I […]


Will The Cardinals Be Able To Come Back From The Brink?

After all the angst, all the teeth gnashing over Jake Arrieta the past two days, turns out he wasn’t a huge factor in GM3 of the NLDS. If you had told any Cardinals fan that he’d go 5 2/3 innings while surrendering 4 runs before yesterday’s game? Backflips. And Mike Wacha didn’t completely implode, making […]


The Cardinals Are Hearing Everything We Say – Can They Use It For Good?

You know what we don’t hear as much from professional athletes anymore? ‘I don’t read that stuff’ or ‘I don’t pay attention’. Specifically when asked about media attention/speculation/opinions. I suspect it’s because they physically can not NOT pay attention. Not that long ago, it wasn’t hard for an athlete to turn the car radio from […]


15 Years Ago Today, Eddie Vedder Trolled St. Louis

If you’re a St. Louis sports fan, it wasn’t a good weekend. The Cardinals shot themselves in the foot and gave away an NLDS game to the Cubs. The Blues still can’t solve the Minnesota Wild (the team that eliminated them from the 2015 postseason). And the Rams had opportunities to make it game in […]


Jaime Garcia’s Aching Tummy Puts Cardinals In NLDS Hole

Heartburn? Maybe diarrhea? Maybe. Very few ailments could come upon Cardinals NLDS GM2 starter Jaime Garcia that would be more appropriate to St. Louis fans current mood than ‘stomach virus’. Lasting just 2 innings, Garcia surrendered 5 runs (all unearned, but not really, since his poor defense was the main reason they were officially scored […]

That was fun. After all the waiting. All the anticipation. All the excitement. We finally got some sweet playoff action between the Cardinals and Cubs. If you’re a fan of the St. Louis professional baseball team, then you adored last night’s game. Want to hug it and squeeze it and kiss it all over. Dominant […]


Nobody Has Any Idea What’s Going To Happen Tonight

YouTube doesn’t do any favors to classic songs. In our mind these superstar musicians keep it 100 at all times. Way cooler than us. Way. They’d never agree to get video taped lip-syncing on a cheap plywood platform with some ‘artistic’ paint bucket spills, right? Right? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uMyCa35_mOg Oh. Truth be told, I was just going to […]

Omar Has Some Advice For Cubs Fans

The Cubs have won their first ‘playoff’ game since 2003. Congrats. Only 53 more playoff wins from tying the Cardinals over the same time period. +++++ As a neutral observer, the Cubs win in the Wild Card game was impressive. They went into Pittsburgh and punched a 98 win team right in the mouth. Jake […]
