Boggs-ing Down

Who knew that the stellar play by Alcides Escobar on Wednesday night's game won a game for the Royals on Thursday?With Edward Mujica and Trevor Rosenthal off-limits due to their recent usage (and, in Rosenthal's case, warming up even when...  [Posted on May 31, 2013 7:01 AM]


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]


Short And Sweep

It's pretty easy to split a two-game series.  It's a lot more satisfying when you can sweep them.(Proud parent alert: I missed all but the first inning of this one due to the boy's Little League game, which had much...  [Posted on May 29, 2013 7:32 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]


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]


The Upper and Lower Range of a Weekend

The Cardinals threw two of the best games we've seen in a long time Friday and Saturday.  Even with that, though, the weekend was just bittersweet instead of wonderfully triumphant after Sunday's outing.  Can't have it all, I guess.We've already...  [Posted on May 13, 2013 6:45 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]


Picking Themselves Up

After their six-game winning streak was snapped, the Cardinals were in the ugly position of possibly getting swept at Wrigley Field by the last place Cubs.  (That's what a short series will do for you.)  Now, anytime you are going...  [Posted on May 9, 2013 8:43 AM]


Momentum Is A Fickle Thing

The Cardinals go to Milwaukee and can't score less than six runs a game, inspiring hope that the offense was starting to click and the Cards were going to go on a run.Eh, not so much.Lance Lynn made one mistake...  [Posted on May 8, 2013 7:10 AM]


Longball and Shortball

It was incredible yesterday.  The Cardinal offense....how do I describe this.....they put on something that was so rare.  It was....well, I believe they call it a rally.On the afternoon after having all their runs score on a Matt Holliday home...  [Posted on May 2, 2013 6:59 AM]


Going First To (Almost) Third

UCB Weekend was, as always, a completely enjoyable time full of great people, good times and memorable moments.  I hope to sit down and write about the dinner and the event with the Cardinals shortly, but in the meantime, the...  [Posted on April 30, 2013 6:33 AM]


Riding The Roller Coaster

Computer glitches this morning have already cost me a good chunk of my blogging time, so let's jump straight into this and see how far we can get.  There's plenty to talk about in relation to the last three games,...  [Posted on April 22, 2013 10:35 AM]


Closer Than It Had To Be

We've seen some good things out of this offense this season.  We've seen a few double-digit games and we've seen them adjust in mid-game, going the first four or five innings without denting the plate, then exploding to take over...  [Posted on April 16, 2013 6:56 AM]


Powering To A Series Win

The lights might have gone out in St. Louis last night, but yesterday afternoon, there was no threat of that at Busch Stadium.  There was plenty of power available for all save the Cincinnati Reds.We talked yesterday about calling Matt...  [Posted on April 11, 2013 7:24 AM]


Adams Power and Light

Matt Adams needs a beard.I mean, you can't call a guy Grizzly Adams if he's clean shaven, can you?  The Royals already call Billy Butler Country Breakfast, so something like that is out.  Adams really needs a nickname, especially if...  [Posted on April 10, 2013 6:44 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]


Prizefight

I'll start this off with a caveat that should surprise no one: I didn't see about half this game.  I don't think many did that aren't in college or at least didn't have to go work today.  It's not a...  [Posted on April 4, 2013 6:59 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]


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]


Crazy Rumor Weekend

When the games on the field aren't that interesting, it seems like the off-the-field stuff makes up for it.  The Cardinals were shut out both Saturday and Sunday, capping a week of limited offense, but were quite active in the...  [Posted on March 18, 2013 7:57 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]


UCB Project: Playing Pepper

For the fifth straight year, Playing Pepper returns to C70 At The Bat.  If you aren't aware, this series helps get a feel for the other 29 teams in baseball by asking those that follow them the closest--their bloggers.  We've...  [Posted on March 11, 2013 11:00 AM]


Power Show

It was almost like an episode of Oprah yesterday.  "You get a home run, and YOU get a home run.  Everybody gets a home run!"While it wasn't quite that bad--the Cards didn't score 20+ runs or anything--all of their scoring...  [Posted on March 7, 2013 9:09 AM]


Another Day, Another Rout

Blast it, I'm starting to get used to this type of game, the large-offense, small-pitching type which leaves the Cardinals comfortably in hand by the end of nine innings.  I know it won't continue, but even in spring, it's fun...  [Posted on March 1, 2013 7:29 AM]


Wacha, Wacha Man

While the Cardinals may have scored double-digit runs for the third straight day, the offense was overshadowed by a presence on the mound, and it wasn't mean, lean Lance Lynn.Michael Wacha is becoming the story of the spring, and with...  [Posted on February 28, 2013 6:59 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]


Book Excerpt: The United Cardinal Bloggers Annual

Michael Wacha: Sometimes we forget...

Michael Wacha put together a man-like season last year, his first experience with pro ball, and finished a partial season with Double-A Springfield and their impressive championship run. Yesterday, he found himself at the Cardinals' annual Winter Warm-Up function, standing...  [Posted on January 20, 2013 2:01 PM]


Thrice Upon A Cardinal Christmas Carol

Exit Interviews: The Synopsis

So, after 2 1/2 weeks, 45 players, one manager, one general manager, and a whole lot of blog posts, the Exit Interview series has come to an end.  I hope you enjoyed it.  I know it gave me a better...  [Posted on November 11, 2012 3:35 PM]


Exit Interview: Jake Westbrook

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 Mike...  [Posted on November 10, 2012 12:15 PM]


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]


Strengthening Their Position

After Friday, while there wasn't necessarily a state of panic within Cardinal Nation, there was definitely some unease.  The Cards had blown a ninth-inning lead and stood just a game and a half ahead of a surging Milwaukee squad....  [Posted on September 24, 2012 6:36 AM]


The Pause That Refreshes

Lance Lynn spent his time in the bullpen.  Apparently, he has no urge to go back.For the second straight outing after his stint out of the starting rotation, Lynn threw a solid game, pushing the Cardinal wild card lead...  [Posted on September 20, 2012 6:47 AM]


A Nice, Quiet Win

When you run out the pitcher with the highest winning percentage in baseball against a team that is on the verge of losing its 100th game, you would expect that there wouldn't be a lot of drama.  Thankfully, this...  [Posted on September 19, 2012 6:33 AM]


Living Right In LA

Something had to give last night.  Thankfully, it was on the Cardinals' side.With both teams doing their darndest to let someone else take the wild card, the Cards were able to break through and get a 2-1 win.  Obviously,...  [Posted on September 14, 2012 7:00 AM]


Trying To Survive

First off, UCB weekend was a major success.  Lots of great times with some great people and I can't wait to write it all up for you.  That said, a proper post on the weekend will take some time that...  [Posted on September 11, 2012 9:28 AM]


Still Fighting

You know, if you looked at just the last two games by themselves, with no context, I think Cardinal fans would be fairly pleased with what they saw.  The Cards lost a game started by Stephen Strasburg, but they...  [Posted on September 3, 2012 9:10 AM]


The Defense Of Yadier Molina

And to think, we almost made it through the season without an Incident.You know, one of those moments where the national press and those that think the worst of the Cardinals get a chance to moralize or condemn the...  [Posted on August 29, 2012 6:50 AM]


Picking Up Steam

Are we sure that was the 2012 Cardinals playing last night?  I mean, it's a fair question.  So often this season we've seen the Cards have a strong series, only to come out flat in a game that matters.  Instead,...  [Posted on August 28, 2012 7:00 AM]


Sweeping Our Cares Away

With two outs in the bottom of the fourth on Thursday, the Cards were down 4-0 and looking very much like the frustrating, non-broom-wielding team that we've seen much more often than we'd like this season.  Dallas Keuchel, who gets...  [Posted on August 23, 2012 7:42 PM]


Doing What's Necessary

There are bare minimums that a team has to do to stay in a postseason race.  One of those is beating up on a cellar-dwelling, potentially historically bad team when you have the chance.  While they didn't have it...  [Posted on August 23, 2012 6:46 AM]


Around The Blogs: Catch Up Edition

Recipe For Success

SHUTOUT (Satisfies a Nation)Take one top-line pitcher, preferably pitching like a Cy Young candidate.  Add in an opposing offense that could be confused with a Triple-A squad.  Mix in run support, adding some runs early and the rest scattered...  [Posted on August 22, 2012 6:49 AM]


Running Out Of Time

The Cardinals had a prime opportunity this weekend, hosting the team ahead of them for the last wild card slot.  A series sweep would have been outstanding, but two out of three would have at least had them tied...  [Posted on August 20, 2012 9:23 AM]


Broken Broom

So close.  So close to a sweep and going into the Pittsburgh series tied with the Pirates for a playoff slot.  But just as the Cards got the broom out of the closet, the handle snapped off and they...  [Posted on August 17, 2012 10:25 AM]


Mood Swing

Late on Sunday afternoon, things looked pretty good.  The Cards had had a test this week versus San Francisco and Philadelphia and after splitting with the Giants, they were looking to take two out of three from the Phillies....  [Posted on August 13, 2012 6:47 AM]


Starting To Roll
