The Friday Links

You’re Chris Brown. You’ve been in the studio, on the grind, trying to work on a new album that will help get your career back on track after it derailed in 2009. And after months and months of work, you’re finally getting close. The studio is informed. They pick a release date – September 16th […]


Giving Up On Trying To Figure Out This Team

On April 23, 1914, the Federal League Chifeds (yes, that’s correct) played the first baseball game at the new Weeghman Park. The Chifeds defeated the visiting Kansas City Packers 9-1. You might know this Weeghman place better as Wrigley Field. And after 100 seasons of baseball, the Cardinals suffered the same fate as their cross-state Missouri brethren on […]


Cardinals Snatch Defeat From Jaws Of Victory

That win was RIPE for the taking. Holliday led off the 8th inning with a double. With Adams and Peralta coming up, you figured this was going to be doable. Instead, Adams weakly hit the ball to the opposite field (for the first time in a month) and Peralta (who had Holliday on 3rd base […]


3 Things That Actually Happened On A Baseball Field

Wainwright Gets His 20th Win Of 2014

And pretty much locks up his third 2nd place Cy Young Finish. If historical trends hold true, Wainwright will also be in the top 20 of NL MVP voting as well (same as 2010, 2013). He’s had a pretty monster year: With the Bears playing a nationally broadcast football game and the Cubs in the […]


That ‘Hunt From October’ Bump From ESPN Last Night

Not much good came from the Cardinals last regular season home game in 2014. Some sort of virus is playing havoc on the line-ups. The offense was stagnant again. The bullpen was a dumpster fire. Et al. But a few of you did notice a pretty cool bump in from commercial last night that was […]


Cardinals Would Like Do-Over On Fan-Appreciation Night

The Cardinals will have at least 1 playoff game in 2014. With the Brewers loss to the Pirates, the Cards are guaranteed to be, at worst, one of the 2 Wild Card entrants into MLB’s post-season tournament. Those that tuned in Sunday night to see just what this playoff team is all about, well, they […]

2011 World Series Game 7 - Texas Rangers v St Louis Cardinals

Bud Selig Shields Himself From NY Media With Cardinals

Bud Selig is on his farewell tour of the MLB, visiting all 30 teams during his last year as Commissioner of Baseball. Some stops are more pleasant than others. The Mets are currently 7 games under .500 and 15 games out of 1st place in the NL East. They might play in America’s biggest media […]


Trevor Has Caught Another Cold

Cough. Cough, cough. Trevor was hardly ‘kingly‘ in the 9th inning of Tuesday’s 3-2 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers. Attempting his 45th save of the season, he promptly stripped Lance Lynn and the Cardinals of a win. 3 outs from a death blow to the Brewers season… the Brew Crew came off the ropes swinging. […]
