Official Team of Captain Taggart

"Never give up, never surrender" was the catchphrase of Captain Quincy Taggart of the fictional show (and real movie) Galaxy Quest.  Since it was set in the future, it's obvious Taggart grew up a Cardinals fan.We've not seen a lot...  [Posted on May 30, 2013 7:02 AM]


Ain't Nothing Going To Break Their Stride

The Cardinals lost as many pitchers as they did games over this long holiday weekend.  That seems to be about par for the course the season; no matter how many obstacles get thrown in their way, the Cards just throw...  [Posted on May 28, 2013 2:00 PM]


T70 At The Mound

Yesterday was filled with so much negative pitching news off the field, it was great to get some good news on it.  That's exactly what the Cardinals got in another late night (for us) in San Diego, as Tyler Lyons...  [Posted on May 23, 2013 10:18 AM]


Brewing Up Some Dominance

The Cards have now played the Brewers 10 times this season.  They wish they could play them 100 more.After winning two of three against the Milwaukee squad, St. Louis has now won eight of 10 against them this season.  David...  [Posted on May 20, 2013 6:44 AM]


Winning Creatively

The Cardinals have won with dominant starting pitching.  They've done that quite a lot this season, actually.  They've won with some big thumpers, though not quite as often.  When a team is winning this regularly, they've got to mix it...  [Posted on May 16, 2013 6:54 AM]


Sometimes It Works

There's been a lot of talk this year about baserunning gaffes by the Cardinals and rightfully so.  Numerous big innings or rallies have been killed when St. Louis has been too aggressive on the basepaths.  Even last night we saw...  [Posted on May 14, 2013 7:13 AM]


Milling the Rockies

As outstanding as Shelby Miller was last night, it was almost overdue.  We shouldn't have been terribly surprised.This is a guy that took a no-hitter into the sixth in his very first major league start.  Who almost every start seems...  [Posted on May 11, 2013 11:01 AM]


Mopping Up The Brewers

I know, the traditional cleaning implement in this situation is a broom, but sweeping up spilled product from a brewmaster just isn't going to get you very far.  The Brewers were thoroughly cleaned up and out this weekend, so any...  [Posted on May 6, 2013 7:03 AM]


Questions Relevant To May The Fourth

A wonderful win by the Cardinals last night, as they use a slew of rookies to put up a 6-1 win.  We'll talk more about that in another post, likely Monday's weekend wrapup.  Also today is the sixth annual UCB...  [Posted on May 4, 2013 11:25 AM]


A Place In The Middle

[Mal jumps four marbles] Zoë: That's a bold move. Mal: I live on the edge. [Zoe jumps six of his marbles] Jayne: Nice work [idiot]. Mal: [as Zoe chuckles] I've given some thought to moving off the edge. Not an ideal location. Might get a...  [Posted on April 19, 2013 6:49 AM]


Coming Out Of The Trance

"And when I snap my fingers, you will realize you can hit Giants pitching."Whomever snapped their fingers and pulled the Cardinals out of being mesmerized by anyone hurling the baseball wearing a San Francisco uniform should have done it a...  [Posted on April 8, 2013 6:44 AM]


Walking The Walk

Adam Wainwright has said from Day 1 that he wants to be in St. Louis.  He has said that's where he grew as a player, where he's learned to be the pitcher that he is today.  He's said a lot...  [Posted on March 29, 2013 7:02 AM]


The Wagonmaker Rides High

It sounded like it was only a matter of time.  Thankfully, this time the sounds were right.Yesterday afternoon, it leaked out that the Adam Wainwright negotiations had reached a productive end.  Wainwright will sign a five year, $97.5 million extension...  [Posted on March 28, 2013 6:46 AM]


A Relieved Cardinal Nation

While the Cardinals did play yesterday and actually scored, snapping another of those long scoreless streaks, the best news that came out likely was in Derrick Goold's weekly chat.  Goold noted that there was no truth to the idea that...  [Posted on March 19, 2013 7:41 AM]


Getting It Out Of The Way

Let's look at the positive side.  At least these games don't count for anything.  Better to have this in the spring than in May or June, right?That's the way to look at this because otherwise, this losing streak would get...  [Posted on March 13, 2013 7:06 AM]


Confirming The Obvious (And Not As Obvious)

You know, during the winter, there were a lot of days where there just wasn't anything to talk about.  Things were slow and we grasped at whatever crumbs we could find.  Yesterday, well, yesterday wasn't one of those days.Let's start...  [Posted on March 8, 2013 6:54 AM]


Off Day Linkage

As you know, the Cardinals were off yesterday, one of three off days before the end of the spring schedule.  Which means there was less to write about, unless you wanted a breakdown of Michael Wacha's boat ride or a...  [Posted on March 6, 2013 7:12 AM]


New Spring Worries

We always want spring to be this time of excitement, of renewal, of getting ready for the season ahead without having to deal with the issues that might bring us down.  This is the fun time, right?However, real life tends...  [Posted on February 21, 2013 11:15 AM]

Confidence Or Arrogance?

Carpenter Speaks, Others Throw

For most of the world, the Pope's retirement was the biggest press event involving cardinals.  Not so much in St. Louis, of course, because Chris Carpenter coming to the microphone can top even the Holy Father in baseball heaven.Carpenter spoke...  [Posted on February 12, 2013 7:00 AM]


The Lent Of The Baseball Fan

Looking back over some of my old posts, it seems I make this analogy every year since at least 2009, but this year it fits so closely that I must make it again.If you aren't of the Christian faith or...  [Posted on February 11, 2013 8:00 AM]


The End Of An Era

When word of a press conference came out yesterday morning, there was a lot of general speculation.  Had the club bought out David Freese's arbitration years?  Was John Mozeliak a stealthy ninja, settling the Adam Wainwright situation while we weren't...  [Posted on February 6, 2013 6:59 AM]

Thrice Upon A Cardinal Christmas Carol

What Do You Get A Cards Fan For Christmas (When They Already Own Game 6)

Giving Thanks, Cardinal Style

It's Thanksgiving, which, by definition, means a time of giving thanks.  We know all the basics--I'm always thankful for my family, my friends, the fact that I'm gainfully employed, etc.--but the following is a list of things that I'm thankful...  [Posted on November 22, 2012 9:35 AM]


Exit Interviews: The Synopsis

I Sense A Disturbance In The Force

Four years ago on Halloween, I dressed up the St. Louis squad in costumes from a galaxy far, far away.  Two years ago, for Star Wars Day (May the fourth, of course), I compared the then-Cardinals to Star Wars characters....  [Posted on October 31, 2012 11:45 AM]


Exit Interview: Chris Carpenter

To give myself a reason to look back on this season, I've started this series of blog posts to review each player that spent time in St. Louis during 2012.  More summaries than anything, I imagine the player coming into...  [Posted on October 25, 2012 2:30 PM]


An Unexpected Position

Well, this isn't where we thought we'd be in the afterglow of Thursday, is it?Sadly, it was foreseeable.  After all, Barry Zito is one of those lefties that, no matter how much the Cardinals should be able to hit him,...  [Posted on October 22, 2012 6:55 AM]


Fighting Overconfidence

In 1985, the Cardinals were up 3-1 on the Kansas City Royals in the World Series.  They lost Game 5 at Busch, lost Game 6 on that infamous call and didn't mentally show up for Game 7.In 1996, the Cardinals...  [Posted on October 19, 2012 7:06 AM]


Ribs Are Overrated

There was so much buildup and excitement before yesterday's start by Chris Carpenter that I started to get concerned.  Baseball seems to love to "flip the script" and, after all, Carpenter is only human.  A human that had missed almost...  [Posted on October 11, 2012 6:28 AM]


Quieting The Noise

So I gotta figure there's a lot fewer Chicken Littles in Cardinal Nation today.  Twelve runs will do that.The Cards got behind again in the second, allowing a run to the Nationals.  Jaime Garcia wasn't sharp and apparently there...  [Posted on October 9, 2012 6:38 AM]


Squandering The Advantage

When the Cardinals went four innings without getting a hit, there was a feeling it would catch up with them.When they left runners on in scoring position, there was a feeling of unease about the whole situation.When they loaded...  [Posted on October 8, 2012 7:24 AM]


Backing In And That's OK

In 2006, the Cardinals lost seven in a row in the last couple of weeks, tightening a race.  They wound up losing their last game as well, but backed it when Houston lost.  That also meant they didn't have...  [Posted on October 3, 2012 6:30 AM]


Playoff Bound--But Which Playoff?

The Cardinals will be playing after Wednesday night, after Game 162.  Last night's win clinched at least a share of the second wild card, meaning that at worst they'd have a playoff with the Dodgers before a playoff with...  [Posted on October 2, 2012 6:35 AM]


That Man Again
