Decoraters wait for the St. Louis Rams Super Bowl banner to lower from the rafters of the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis on January 14, 2016. Signage is being removed from the former home of the St. Louis Rams after owner Stan Kroenke announced the team will return to Los Angeles for the 2016 season and will eventually play in a new stadium. The Rams arrived in St. Louis from Los Angeles in 1995, winning the Super Bowl in 2000, but in recent years have had the lowest attendance in the NFL.  Photo by Bill Greenblatt/UPI

The Cardinals Are Letting Us Down When We Need Them The Most

January 13th. After 21 seasons in St. Louis, the NFL announces the Rams will play in Los Angeles for 2016 and beyond. Years of plotting by owner Stan Kroenke have paid off. He instantly doubles (at least) the team’s valuation, moves into a glamorous media market ripe with opportunity and gains approval to build/occupy a new […]


Ozzie Smith’s Yellow Brick Road Front Door

We have a contact form at Cards Diaspora, believe it or not. Hardly ever gets used, since everyone is so busy in the comment section of each post creating the vibrant community that is CD NATIOOOOON! But from time to time, we’ll get a note. Earlier this AM, a PR firm representing Coldwell Banker sent […]


The Cardinals Have The Correct Record

WAR. It’s a good metric. A fine metric. And with 2/3 of the ’16 season already in the books, it’s a fair indicator of how players are playing. Here are the top 5 MLB WAR leaders according to ESPN: Mike Trout (6.77) Jose Altuve (6.26) Josh Donaldson (5.75) Mookie Betts (5.52) Kris Bryant (5.14) In […]

The One Reason The Cardinals Won’t Be Making A Big Move Today

The MLB non-waiver trade deadline is today @ 3p CT. The Cardinals will not make a big trade before then. This isn’t a controversial statement. If you were to look at a the Cardinals 2016 objectively, you’d see a team that has many flaws, but none of them so glaring that a move – even […]


Cardinals Rated ‘Least Likable’ Team In Baseball

Deadspin has been having a good time with the Cardinals losses in 2016. After each of the now 49 L’s, they post a quick update to their site, serving the dual purpose of giving Deadspin founder Will Leitch a digital noogie while also working the more high-strung Cardinals fans amongst us into a mild lather. […]

The Friday Links

Box Springs Up Stairs + The Friday Links

I subscribe to ‘This Old House’ on YouTube. They surfaced this video to my page and it really hit home. I know I’ve straight up abandoned at least one box spring because I couldn’t figure out how to move it. Maybe this will resonate with you, maybe it won’t. And if it doesn’t, congrats on […]


The Most Unlikely Win Of 2016… So Far

The Cardinals have won 54 games in 2016. All wins are not created equal and win #54 was the most improbable of 2016. While we’re all over here yakking about Aroldis Chapman and his 105 MPH fastball, the best closer in baseball has been shutting teams down in historic fashion. Jeurys Familia is the Omega. […]


Cardinals Fans Are Probably Going To See History This Weekend

UPDATE (7/31 @6p): Cardinals fans did not see history this weekend. Ichiro did not get his 3,000th hit. +++++ Last night Ichiro posted the 2,997th hit of his MLB career. And with a four-game series against the Marlins in Miami this upcoming weekend, there is a good chance that Ichiro will become the 30th member of […]

This Is A Good Attitude


Cardinals Lose Game, Series To Dodgers

Timing is everything. On Friday evening the Memphis Redbirds postponed their game against the Iowa Cubs and Mike Mayers and his teammates got an unexpected night off. Later in the night/early morning, the Cardinals engaged in a 16 inning affair with the Dodgers. Since they played a doubleheader earlier in the week and used Tyler […]


Was That The Turning Point?

The Cardinals were following a familiar script on Thursday night. On the precipice of really building some momentum (especially at home) and sweeping the San Diego Padres, the wheels were coming off. They were in the friendly embrace of Busch Stadium, facing a poor team, throwing their ace – a real peach of scenario for a […]


Jedd Gyorko, Everyone

Breakups are never easy. And, just like in real life, professional baseball break-ups are pretty common. Sometimes it’s by choice (hello, Jason Heyward), sometimes it’s not (Tulo is totally fine now) and every once in a while, the tears are all for naught. Over 162 games it’s hard to get yourself capital F capital U […]


Someone Created A Minecraft Version Of Busch Stadium

As if the audience for this site weren’t small enough, we’re going to go VERY niche and make a post on St. Louis Cardinals Minecraft. Specifically, a video I found deep in the bowels of YouTube that tours a detailed version of Busch Stadium that someone has created. If you’re not familiar with Minecraft, it’s pretty […]
