Somehow, Someway, That All Worked Out For The Cardinals

That could have been a whole lot better. That could have been a whole lot worse. Both things are true as we dig through the rubble of a 2-2 split against a bottom dwelling foe… that somehow vaulted the Cardinals into a first place tie in the NL Central. First the bad news. + The […]


Cardinals Get A Double Dose of #SolarPower

Can’t say we didn’t warn you. Jorge Solar lit up the Cardinals Friday night, tying the game in the 7th and coming back to embarrass them in the 8th. He’s been with the Cubs since Wednesday and already he has more home runs than all but 8 Cardinals players in 2014. There is a real […]

The Friday Links

The Friday Links

Labor Day. Out of all the holidays, Labor Day is the only one where the government sat around and said ‘hey, we’re working hard – we need a day off’. Right? Well, either that or trying avoid more bloody massacre in Chicago… Labor Day was promoted by the Central Labor Union and the Knights of […]


The Cardinals Have Turned Into Little Brother

132 down. 30 to go. The Cardinals curled up into the fetal position and wept through the past two Pittsburgh nights. But since they take up residence in the NL Central, all is well. They lost no ground and still remain 1.5 games in arrears of the Brewers. I have no proof, but I believe […]

Cardinals Gamer In Denver Gets ‘Swatted’

Check this out… Make sure to pay close attention to what the dude is wearing when the SWAT team busts through the door. Read the whole story here. Moral of the story? It’s never easy being a Cardinals fan. Photo: KMGH h/t: Mountain Fresh


Probably Time For Matheny To Own Mistakes, Not Make Excuses

This is St. Louis. We take a bunch of crap for calling ourselves the best fans in baseball but it’s all in good fun. Through all the ribbing from places like Deadspin for #BFIBing, one thing doesn’t ever come up – the question of do Cardinals fans actually KNOW baseball. We do. It’s not fair […]

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 […]
