Baseball (And This Cardinals Team) Is Weird

Not like the creepy weird – the weird that makes you uncomfortable. But the fun weird – the ‘didn’t expect that’ weird. On April 8th, the Cardinals had 3 players rip pinch-hit home runs in a single game, marking the first occurrence of this particular feat in MLB history. We thought it might be a one-game […]


Cardinals, Like Frozen Butter, Having Problems Getting On Roll

You were probably at work this afternoon and missed the last game of the Cardinals / Brewers series. So I’ve embedded the highlights below: You know how I know you just wanted to get out of town? That’s the box score of a game where you’re either playing the lovechild of Clayton Kershaw and […]


Liverpool And Roma Playing @ Busch Stadium August 1

St. Louis may have not locked down a MLS team (yet), but international soccer teams are making Busch Stadium a destination for friendlies. On MON AUG 1, Liverpool will take on Roma. Kickoff is set for 7:30p. Tickets for the event will go on sale WED JUN 8 @ 10a (CT). You can order online […]


Wacha Flocka Flamed

Look at that picture of Yadi and Matheny above. We’ve been there. We’ve seen those looks. Dad, nose turned up. Can’t even look at you after he’s seen what you’ve done. Ain’t my son. Mom, eyes bubbling with tears, fidgeting with her fingers to ease the stress. Wondering just where everything went so wrong. The […]


Cardinals Fans Most Likely To Benefit From Papa John’s Deal

If you thought that Cardinals fans were the only ones getting hit with Papa John’s ads touting themselves as the ‘official pizza’ of the team, it turns out that 21 other MLB clubs have similar deals in place. And all of them include the do X and get Y clause. In the Cardinals case, it’s: 1 […]


Mayor Slay Should Cancel Work This Afternoon

Mayor Slay isn’t running for re-election for the mayorship of St. Louis when his current term is up in 2017. He isn’t burdened with campaign fundraising. He isn’t beholden to anything but the best interest of the public writ large. So with the Cardinals playing the Cubs AND the Blues in a pivotal game 5 against […]

The Friday Links

Rapping, Deconstructed + The Friday Links

I’m not going to act like I know what’s wrong with the Blues. There are lots of great Blues blogs out there with way more informed opinions than my ‘Blues should look into scoring more goals’ take. As Blues fans, we kind of knew that winning a Stanley Cup was a grind. I feel like […]


The 2016 Cardinals Will Score All Of The Runs… Or None Of Them

The phrase ‘feast or famine’ gets tossed around in sports not irregularly. But I’m having a difficult time remembering a professional sports team, let alone a Cardinals team, that has been so all in or all out without any consistency game to game. They’re an EKG with batting gloves. And the ones not wearing batting gloves […]


6 & 14

Two numbers. Six. Fourteen. If you want to sum up the Cardinals 2016 thus far, you don’t have to twist yourself into knots. You don’t have to lament the potential versus the production of a highly capable pitching staff. You don’t have to try and tease out why one the best offenses in the NL […]

This Has To Be A Great Week If The Cardinals Want To Win The NL Central

Sunday night was a damn good time for St. Louis fans. The Blues played in the Western Conference Finals for the first time in 15 years (and won). If you were watching sports last night, you were watching St. Louis win. +++++ The Cardinals went 4-2 on this west coast road trip and have 6 upcoming […]

The Friday Links

Drawing + The Friday Links

Maybe I’ve posted this video before? Even if I have, it’s worth another look. Especially if you’re like me, and can’t draw. Or at least I couldn’t draw until I watched this TED talk. If you’re looking for a mid-day break, grab a pen and a couple pieces of scrap paper and try this out. […]

St. Louis Cardinals Albert Pujols laughs to teammates in the dugout as third baseman Felipe Lopez tries his hand at pitching to the New York Mets in the 18th inning at Busch Stadium in St. Louis on April 17, 2010. New York won the game 2-1 in 20 innings.     UPI/Bill Greenblatt

Albert Pujols Saved Cardinals Fans From A Bunch Of Tough ‘What Ifs’

This is Albert Pujols’ fifth (!!!) season with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. I’m not sure which is more sad… the fact that Pujols is currently batting .190 and becoming a catalyst for (silly) talk about trading Mike Trout or that any mention of the greatest baseball player I’ve ever seen in person inevitably leads […]

It’s Hard To Fix Everything At Once

So this is how the other half lives? The Cardinals put the finishing touches on a 4-6 home stand Sunday with a loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates, dropping them to 16-16 on the season and 9 games back of the Cubs for the NL Central lead. The Cardinals are now 1-5 against the Pirates on […]
