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]

UCB Weekend 3: Feels Like Home

It's been a week since a majority of the members of the United Cardinal Bloggers met in St. Louis for the third straight year.  This trip, affectionately called UCB Weekend (with its own Twitter hashtag and, this year, Bonfyre dedicated...  [Posted on May 5, 2013 3:07 PM]

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]

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]

Ruining The Moment

With two innings to go yesterday, the Cardinals were on the brink of something pretty extraordinary.  Not only were they in position for the sweep, but they just had to get six outs and they could blank the Brewers for...  [Posted on April 15, 2013 6:46 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]

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]


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]

Unfulfilled Promise

There's a lot of hope and excitement that surrounds Opening Day.  The problem is, by the end of the night only one team continues to feel that way.  Last night, that team wasn't the Cardinals.There wasn't one facet of the...  [Posted on April 2, 2013 6:47 AM]

One Way, Then Another

On Monday, my blog post outlined out the David Freese situation assuming that he was going on the disabled list.  On Monday afternoon, the team and Freese come out and say they are encouraged by the MRI and that he...  [Posted on March 27, 2013 6:53 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]

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]

Baseball, Blessed Baseball

What a wonderful weekend.  Baseball has made its return, albeit in exhibition games where the scores don't mean much (though, as the Yankees found out, you can't call them meaningless games).  We get to hear and see the crack of...  [Posted on February 25, 2013 7:01 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]

UCB Roundtable: Social Media Director For A Day

Pardon the lack of activity around here.  Between the lack of Cardinal actions and the holiday season, it's tough to make the time to sit down at the keyboard.  I know I haven't weighed in on Randy Choate, but there's...  [Posted on December 10, 2012 7:05 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: Marc Rzepczynski

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 8, 2012 10:50 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]

That Man Again

Last night, the Cardinals played the Astros for the last time as divisional rivals.  While I'll miss the rivalry and think the whole concept of moving the team to the American League is absurd, there is one thing I...  [Posted on September 27, 2012 6:32 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]

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]

Better Than The Alternative

The Cardinals were able to take two of three this weekend from the Reds. While that's a good thing for their playoff hopes, it's more like a mosquito bite to the chances of actually taking the division.  Whether that matters...  [Posted on August 27, 2012 7:30 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]

Pick An Adjective

Embarrassing.  Frustrating.  Ugly.  Back-breaking.  Historic.  Anger-inducing.  Aggravating.Pick your word and it fits last night's debacle between the Cardinals and the Giants.  It started rough, got worse and finished up as a spectacle worthy of an R rating for graphic...  [Posted on August 9, 2012 6:47 AM]

Four Out Of Five Ain't Good Enough

Apologies for the long gap.  Between work and birthday happenings, I wasn't able to get to writing.  If the Cards lose tonight, I might have to swear it off for a while again because they've played some excellent ball...  [Posted on August 5, 2012 4:34 PM]

Slipping Back Into The Muck

There was a lot of momentum going with the Cardinals into Wrigley Field this weekend.  It looked like the team we'd hoped would be around all year had finally showed up.  Friday seemed to confirm that things were different,...  [Posted on July 30, 2012 7:23 AM]

"All Day And All Night"

Going into last night's game, the Cardinals had faced Cy Young winners eight times this year.  Those pitchers were 5-2 with an ERA under 2.00 against this squad.  Clayton Kershaw was a part of that with his shutout earlier...  [Posted on July 25, 2012 6:50 AM]

Bitten By The Past

That's not exactly the way we hoped the Cards would start the second half.Facing a team ahead of them in the standings, a team they really needed to do well against, the Cards are swept due to, mainly, a...  [Posted on July 16, 2012 9:27 AM]

Winning When They Should

Two games against the Rockies, two wins.  That's what good teams are supposed to do, but it's not always been a given with this Cardinal squad.  Let's look at the last couple of nights.Wednesday (4-1 win)Hero: Matt Holliday.  There...  [Posted on July 6, 2012 12:02 PM]

You Know Nothing, Cardinal70

This would seem to be a pretty bad matchup for the Pirates, good pitching against weak hitting.--yesterday's post There's a reason a site called You Can't Predict Baseball exists, folks. It wasn't some wildling that provided the title for this...  [Posted on June 30, 2012 12:14 PM]

The Beat Reporter's Nightmare

By their own admission, beat writers aren't necessarily fans of the team.  There has to be some emotional distance between them and the ones that they cover.  So while the pure fan can fully enjoy games like last night's...  [Posted on June 26, 2012 6:51 AM]

Exaggerated Reports

To paraphrase Mr. Twain, reports of the Cardinals' offensive demise have been greatly exaggerated.The activation of Jon Jay and Matt Carpenter (or the pitching staff of the Royals) seemed to give this team a spark this weekend.  After scoring...  [Posted on June 25, 2012 6:57 AM]

A Week+ Of Inconsistency

Cards Wrench One From New York

For a while there, it looked like it was going to be another one of those days.The Cardinal offense showed a few more signs of life, though I wouldn't say it just busted out.  The problem was, the Cards...  [Posted on June 5, 2012 6:48 AM]

June Has To Be Better, Right?

The way the month of May has gone for the Cardinals, it'd have seemed almost wrong for them to finish the month on a high note.  No worries there, unfortunately.Where exactly do you lay the most blame for last...  [Posted on May 31, 2012 8:00 AM]

Ups And Downs

Word Of The Day: Sweep

The Cardinals got to see an old friend last night.  Then they showed him why he was an old friend and not a current one.I think it was key that the Cards were able to bounce back from that...  [Posted on May 24, 2012 7:15 AM]

Playing Like The Devil In The City Of Angels

I'm sure there was something good about the Cardinals trip to Los Angeles this weekend.  However, it might have been limited to hearing Vin Scully on the call because, otherwise, this was like checking into Hotel California--as much as they...  [Posted on May 21, 2012 6:53 AM]

A Pair Of Wins

Every team goes through some sort of bump in the road.  The key is to see how they react to it, if they are able to minimize the losing.  So far, that's a test the Cardinals are passing.  Two...  [Posted on May 17, 2012 7:14 AM]

History Repeats?

On Monday, May 3, 2010, the Cardinals beat the Phillies and finished the day five games up on their nearest competitors in the NL Central.  Jamie Garcia won that game and stood at 3-1 with a 1.13 ERA.  Chris...  [Posted on May 15, 2012 6:44 AM]

Belt(ran)ing Out The Hits

A week ago, the Cardinals loaded the bases against A.J. Burnett in the first inning but were unable to score.  Burnett wiggled free and proceeded to cruise to a victory.  Last night, we got to see the alternate universe,...  [Posted on May 3, 2012 6:45 AM]

Cardinals 2, Cubs 1, Umpires 2

I don't like to complain about the umpires.  They have a tough job and often complaints about them are tinged with the bias of whatever side you are rooting for.  Even last night, the focus probably should be on...  [Posted on April 25, 2012 7:10 AM]

Jaime Being Jaime

I've often said the biggest problem with Jaime Garcia is just getting consistent work from him.  There are times when he looks like the Next Big Thing, rolling through batters and getting deep into games.  Unfortunately, just as often...  [Posted on April 12, 2012 7:08 AM]

Fasten Your Seat Belts

It's what we've been waiting for.  Real, honest, counts-in-the-standings competition starts tonight.  It's time for Cardinal baseball, a wonderful time that should get everyone reading this blog excited.As Bernie Miklasz says, it's a new era.  We've talked all winter long...  [Posted on April 4, 2012 7:00 AM]
