Answering The Made Up Questions Of The Off-Season

Friends, it’s the fallow season. The playoffs are becoming more of a distant memory as the holidays draw closer. The weather is decidedly un-baseball. Free agency hasn’t really started. And spring training  is still about 100 days away. It’s time for sites like this to start making up shit to write about. And we’re not […]

The Friday Links

The Friday Links + Serial

I made this recommendation on Twitter a week or two ago, but if you’re not on board with ‘Serial’, it’s time to get on board. It’s great. Here’s the first episode: Yes. It’s a podcast. No. Listening to a podcast won’t automatically manifest a scarlet ‘D’ for dork on your chest. Yes. It’s well worth […]


What Are The Chances Carlos Gonzalez Is A Cardinal By Opening Day?

Not good. But let’s go through this anyway. PROS: The last 2 seasons prior to 2014, Gonzalez was an All-Star and Gold Glove winner. He’s a corner outfielder. Under contract for 3 more years @ 53M total. Career .520 SLG. CONS:  He ended last season under the knife to repair a torn patella tendon. Compares […]


The News No One Wanted About Oscar Taveras

Oscar Taveras was drunk. —– In 2009, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety released this video of an offset crash between a 1959 Chevrolet Bel Air and a 2009 Chevrolet Malibu. Colloquialisms about old cars being ‘tanks’ or ‘indestructible’ are not only wrong – they’re really wrong. Cars built in 2014 are MUCH more safe than […]


Saluting The Veterans On Their Day

Jay Hanna Dean was born January 16th 1910 in Lucas, Arkansas. Before the Cardinals retired his number 17 from use. Before he was inducted into the baseball hall of fame. Before he won 30 games (!) in 1934 and led a staff immortalized as the ‘Gashouse Gang’, young Dean was just a kid that wanted […]


Ballpark Village Becoming More Ominous…

Earlier this week, The Riverfront Times went long on Ballpark Village taking every single dollar of commerce from downtown STL this summer. Rough estimate, of course. Now, the Twitter feed of BPV is transitioning into more broodier territory: Don’t what!? Just DON’T. OK? You’ve seen what this multipurpose behemoth can do to former stalwarts like […]

The Friday Links

The Friday Links + Adult Swim

Last week we thought ‘The Far Side’ cartoon was weird. Comparatively, it was not weird. Let’s back up, though. Because you probably didn’t know this – but Adult Swim is one of the most popular channels on TV. Did you know that? According to the NY Times: Adult Swim is the top-rated cable network in […]


Awards Season: Yadier Molina Wins Gold Glove

I thought about just going back to 2013 and pulling up the post about Yadier Molina winning the Gold Glove for catchers in the NL and throwing it back up. It wouldn’t have been much different than the post form 2012, though. So maybe I’d do the 2012 one? Then again, how’s that different than […]


Cardinals Hire David Bell As Bench Coach & People Are Happy

You’ve probably guessed by now, people aren’t all that happy. (Side: when people ask ‘what does it even mean to be a “baseball town”?, just point to this blog post where not only are we posting about a new bench coach, but also embedding Tweets mocking said hire. People in San Diego are not spending […]


The Pablo Sandoval To Cardinals Conundrum

Kung Fu Panda. The Round Mound of Pound. Little Money. Pablo Sandoval goes by many nicknames, but to Cardinals fans his presence in October has been less welcome than a priest by your hospital bed. We call him The Reaper. If you can’t beat ‘em… have them join you? That’s been the chorus line coming […]
