The Friday Links

The New Football Stadium + The Friday Links

If you haven’t seen it already, here’s the video that the #STLNFL group presented to the NFL this week regarding the new riverfront stadium plan: A couple of things here: 1) Damn STL looks good in virtual reality! 2) What is ‘In-Seat Digital Display’ (1:39 mark)? They’re going to run instant replay OVER the […]


Wong Went Ahead And Had Himself A Night

Alright, now. Do your thing Kolten Wong. LINK HERE He pretty much strapped his teammates on his back last night and carried them to a win against a team that many picked to represent the NL in World Series. Tre-men-dous game. We even got some e-mail about Mr. Wong… OK, I’m finally on the Kolten […]


Matt Adams Not Off To The Ideal Start

It’s fair to say that the Cardinals had questions about Matt Adams. Signing Mark Reynolds served a duel purpose: 1) Let Matt Adams know that he’s going to have to earn his playing time in 2015 and that if he doesn’t perform, the team has viable options to replace him on a regular basis. 2) […]


Cardinals Make It Up To Andrea Karl

About That Matt Carpenter Dive

Ed Note: This is a special guest post from friend of the site, John Madigan. If you’re ever inspired to write something on the Cardinals, let us know… Folks, I watch a lot of baseball. I have done so for years. My (female) roommate dreads April through October because I claim complete dominance of the […]


You Got An Arm? You Want To Come Out Of The Bullpen?

Remember your birthday as a kid? It was freaking awesome. You’d get a ton of new toys and you’d spend the next week trying to figure out just how much time you needed to spend with each one to create optimal fun. Mike Matheny seems to be taking this approach with his bullpen. If you’ve […]


From The Inbox: “Here Comes The King”

From time to time, readers of the site will reach out. And from time to time, those reaching out will not be doing so to tell us how awful the site has become and how they’re appalled that the Internet allows such drivel to exist. Last night I had a very nice email exchange with […]
