Cards/Dodgers Is the New Yankees/Sox

Not so long ago, you couldn’t get away with not seeing he Yankees & Sox play baseball. After the Red Sox stunned the baseball world (including their own fans) by coming back from a 3-0 deficit in the 2004 ALCS, the programmers at ESPN and FOX went whole hog on the series anytime they played. […]

Cardinals fans are getting trolled on the daily at this point.

How did they determine this? But a […]


NLDS GM 1: “I Don’t Believe What I Just Saw”

Why not Oscar Taveras? The wunder-prospect that took too long to call-up, that took a trade to get in the line-up, that never really took to hitting MLB pitching and found himself as a bench player during the end of the season… why couldn’t he come in and with one swing erase a season of […]

The results, though? Conclusive. America (and the world) are looking forward to the Cardinals vs Dodgers […]


The Wild Card Round Is Good

We got the best and worst of the Wild Card round the past two days. On one hand, the insta-game 7 in KC was everything you could want in a baseball game (plus horrible managing!). On the other, a scrappy Pittsburgh team that could have caused some serious damage in the playoffs was decisively ousted […]

Wall Street Journal Says Cardinals Are Most Hateable Playoff Team

And it’s not even close. We’ve been cautioning people that the transition from America’s ‘Most Hated Baseball Team’ has been ongoing for a few years now.

Yahoo! Writer Not Excited About Cardinals World Series

Right at this moment, there are 10 teams that could win the World Series. By Wednesday night, that number will be trimmed to 8, but in the meantime, baseball writers need some new angles beyond why Team X ‘can totally win this’. Mike Oz of Big League Stew had an interesting idea… rank all of […]

For The First Time We Can Say Something Definitive About The Cardinals

The 2014 season is 161 games old. And just like on March 31st, the season is far from over. Maybe we should have known? That day the Cardinals beat the Reds 1-0. After an off-day, they turned around and lost a 1-0 game to the same team. It’s been weird ever since. When the fans […]
