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]


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]


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]


Just Enough

You know when you were in school and you would study just enough to pass the test or get the B or whatever you had to have not to fail/ruin your GPA/stay eligible for scholarships?  That was pretty much the...  [Posted on May 1, 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]


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]


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]


A Great Day Ruined

I'm a big believer in the Golden Rule.  As a Christian, it's one of those basic foundations of how I try to live my life.  The world would be better if we all did that, I'd suggest.  That said, every...  [Posted on April 9, 2013 6:47 AM]


UCB Project: 2013 National League Central Predictions

After sorting through the American League and the National League East, the middle of the week brings us to the best division in baseball.  It's not perhaps the best as in the strongest or best as in the most star-laden,...  [Posted on March 27, 2013 11:15 AM]


Taking The Fifth

As we expected before the spring (though not necessarily throughout the camp), Shelby Miller will be the fifth starter in the Cardinal rotation.  While the loss of Jason Motte, freeing up a bullpen spot, didn't hurt Miller's case (as Joe...  [Posted on March 26, 2013 6:59 AM]


A Twist On Survivor: Jupiter

Every spring, Derrick Goold follows what he calls Survivor: Jupiter.  He keeps track of who is the last player not to appear in a spring training game.  It's a neat diversion and I think Adron Chambers won this year, though...  [Posted on March 25, 2013 6:46 AM]


Everything's Coming Up Waino

The day back from an off-day and Adam Wainwright decided he'd dominate the news.First, he took on the Mets and looked pretty much like the Wainwright we hope to see once the season starts.  He did walk three in his...  [Posted on March 22, 2013 8:02 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]


Two Men Enter, But Which One Leaves?

Yesterday's game was billed as the deciding factor for the fifth starter slot.  Joe Kelly would start the game, Shelby Miller would come in afterwards, and we'd all get a good idea of who was going to take the last...  [Posted on March 15, 2013 6:59 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]


The Ride Starts Early

Last year, the Cardinals were a feast or famine team at times.  Score big or score none.  You weren't always sure what team was going to show up.  While the traditional spring caveats (it's early, it's spring, not the makeup...  [Posted on March 5, 2013 11:15 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]


First Win In The Books

Oh, how we are going to miss Houston.Not long-term, of course.  With Jeff Luhnow in charge down there it wouldn't be surprising to see Houston contending for divisional titles in a couple of years.  However, they aren't there yet and...  [Posted on February 26, 2013 6:59 AM]


Settling Accounts

While Stan Musial is still strongly in our thoughts (and more links about him in a bit), the Cardinals have started to move on with preparations for the 2013 season.  Yesterday, that meant making sure there was some stability in...  [Posted on January 23, 2013 7:12 AM]


Cardinal Bloggers Awards: 2012 Ballot

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: Jason Motte

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 6, 2012 6:45 AM]


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]


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]


Rain Delay Theater

So the Cards were this close to finishing off the Giants for another night when Mother Nature decided to get in on the fun.  Right now, the Cards are still sitting in the clubhouse, nursing a 3-1 lead and waiting...  [Posted on October 17, 2012 8:32 PM]


Incre-DD-ible

These things don't happen.They don't, they just don't.  And when they do happen, like they did last year in Game 6, they don't happen again.  Everyone gets all excited about "hey, they've done it before" but the other team knows...  [Posted on October 13, 2012 11:17 AM]


BBA Award Season: My Ballot

(Main entry, dealing with yesterday's game and tonight's do-or-die, is below.)As most regular readers know, this blog is part of the Baseball Bloggers Alliance.  Conceived as a way to get bloggers to interact with each other and use each other...  [Posted on October 12, 2012 8:40 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]


There's No Credit For Style Points

An INFIELD FLY is a fair fly ball (not including a line drive nor an attempted bunt) which can be caught by an infielder with ordinary effort, when first and second, or first, second and third bases are occupied, before...  [Posted on October 6, 2012 10:31 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]


Glimpsing The Finish Line

Recently, I've been running through episodes of Fringe on Amazon.  (I'm almost done with season 3--no spoilers!)  If you aren't familiar with the show, it's (at least so far) a show about two separate dimensions, this universe and "the...  [Posted on September 26, 2012 6:26 AM]


What A Difference A Game Makes

The best number that came out of last night wasn't six, even though the Cards were able to score six runs for the second straight night after going all month with just one.The best number that came out of...  [Posted on September 25, 2012 6:35 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]


Live By The Sword, Die By The Sword

Last year, the Cardinals thrived with one last strike.  This year, their opponents are.For the third time in less than two weeks, the Cardinals were just a pitch away from winning a big ballgame, only to see a home...  [Posted on September 22, 2012 9:18 AM]


Happy Chris Carpenter Day!

Anyone that thought this day would come this year after Chris Carpenter had his surgery, please raise your hand.Yes, you in the back?  With your hand up?  Please move away from the rest of us so that we will...  [Posted on September 21, 2012 9:04 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]


Could Have Been Better, Could Have Been Worse

The Cardinals played their closest wild card rivals this weekend and were so very close to at least a series win, if not a series sweep.  Bullpen issues kept them from putting their stamp on the wild card, but...  [Posted on September 17, 2012 6:36 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]


Laboring For A Win

After the last week, a win is a win is a win and you can't complain too much about it, but yesterday's victory against the Mets was a little more nerve-wracking than you'd care for when you are drawing...  [Posted on September 4, 2012 6:47 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 Plague

Someone go fumigate the travel bags and team plane.  Because, apparently, suckiness is contagious.Sure, the team has been struggling lately, but Adam Wainwright was on the mound.  Adam Wainwright.  The Wagonmaker.  The lanky sheriff that strides into town and...  [Posted on September 1, 2012 10:07 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]


The Autograph of the Future

You hang over the rail, waiting for your favorite player to come out of the dugout and start working his way through the line.  Maybe he gets to you, maybe he doesn't.  Most likely, at best you get a...  [Posted on August 27, 2012 11:47 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]
