How Jack Buck Helped Save A Life

There are kids entering high school this fall that have never heard Jack Buck call a baseball game live. One of the Cardinals greats, Mr. Buck passed away in 2002 (!), but that isn’t stopping new stories about the man to surface.

Have you seen the ‘Rally Runner’? He’s the dude wearing Cardinals gear and red face paint that runs around the outside of Busch Stadium during home games.

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 […]

Cardinals Players Have Dipped Their Last Dip In Wrigley Field

I hope whomever had to break the news to Carlos Martinez let him down easy.

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 […]

It’s primary election day in IL and MO. Hopefully you get the chance to get out and vote. Be loud. Be proud. Support the people you feel will do the best job in public office. Cardinals great Jim Edmonds does. Looks like James Baseball took a little heat for his choice of headgear. So his […]


The Cardinals ‘Fun’ Issues Came Back Up Over The Weekend

How fun should professional sports be? Not for the fan, but for the player. Kind of fun? Really fun? Not fun?

Kozma Is Coming Back To St. Louis, Isn’t He?

Peter Kozma had a miserable 2015 season for the Cardinals. There’s all sorts of stats that will corroborate the statement above, but just in case you want one to whet your whistle: Kozma’s Rbat (number of runs better or worse than an average player as a hitter) was -13. In just over 100 plate appearances, […]
