Carlos Martinez Is Ready For The 2016 Season

What a difference an off-season can make. From September ’15: From March ’16: A day after that first Tweet, the Cardinals shut Martinez down for the rest of the ’15 season (including the playoffs) with a ‘shoulder strain’. It’s hard to say that any season where you’re named an All-Star, win 14 games and post […]

Is Ruben Tejada Just What The Cardinals Need Or A Pizza Player?

Man, I love pizza. All kinds. All brands. There is no bad pizza, just pizza that isn’t as good as the greatest pizza. I’d love to grab a slice or three for lunch today. But I won’t. Because pizza is bad for me. I’ll eat pizza soon enough. But the rationalizations will be banked by […]

From the Sun-Times: The Chicago ban is a big victory for the […]


Pirates Release What We Can Only Assume Is A Hostage Video Of David Freese

The Jewel Box. Bevo Mill. City Museum. David Freese. All civic treasures. Which is why it was so concerning to see Mr. Freese in what appears to be a hostage video recently posted to the Pittsburgh Pirates official Twitter feed. I don’t even want to share it, but it’s important that you see: Look at […]
