A Tale Of Two Cities

Yesterday, following Twitter, there was the suggestion floated that Cliff Lee might be looking at an unnamed team in a "place he loves."  Following on that with some discussion at this weekend's poker table, when around a third-hand report (which,...  [Posted on December 14, 2010 9:10 AM]

Stephen Strasburg Ruined My ITouch

Stephen Strasburg is an incredible pitcher.  He's taken the baseball world by storm, living up to the hype, setting records virtually every time out.  Yet this weekend, he was indirectly responsible for me frying my iPod Touch.Let me preface this...  [Posted on June 21, 2010 9:25 AM]

Cards Not Quiet On Off-Day

The Cardinals may have not have had a scheduled game yesterday, but they made news all the same, trading minor league outfielder Brian Barton to Atlanta for Blaine Boyer.My initial reaction on the trade was a decided "ugh".  That led...  [Posted on April 21, 2009 9:55 AM]

Tragedy Strikes Angels

Most of you know by now, but if not, Los Angeles Angels rookie Nick Adenhart died in a car accident last night in California, only hours after throwing six scoreless innings.Cardinal fans know about this.  We know about a young...  [Posted on April 9, 2009 12:55 PM]

Cutting Them Down To Size

Along with a loss to go into an off day, yesterday was particularly painful for some players, as they were reassigned to the minor league camp, ending their shot (for the most part) of starting the season in St. Louis.None...  [Posted on March 17, 2009 8:43 AM]

Skip-ping Second

Lots of stuff to get into today.  Plenty off the field and, oh by the way, there was a game yesterday.Let's take the biggest news first, though.  According to Joe Strauss, the Skip Schumaker at second story isn't succeeding.  It...  [Posted on March 12, 2009 8:38 AM]

A Weekend of Cardinal Baseball

Two games, two wins this weekend for the Cardinals.  Plenty of offense to examine, but the most important stats came on the mound.Chris Carpenter: 2 innings, no hits, no runs, 19 pitches, 13 strikes.If you don't think those numbers rang...  [Posted on March 2, 2009 8:43 AM]

Two More Days

These are the last two days without baseball games.  Isn't that wonderful to dwell on?  After Wednesday, basically every day from now to the beginning of October will have a Cardinal baseball game to watch and discuss.  The offseason is...  [Posted on February 23, 2009 7:53 AM]

Talking Cardinal Finances

Rick Hummel sat down and talked with John Mozeliak.  The resulting discussion wasn't really what anyone wanted to hear, but I doubt many were surprised by it.The way that the article is presented, though, seems a little strange.  It's as...  [Posted on January 7, 2009 9:34 AM]

Grading the Cardinals II: The Outfield

Yesterday, we took a fairly lengthy (and hopefully informative) look at the management and infield of the Cardinals.  Today, we step onto the outfield grass and give the Redbird flycatchers their yearly grades.Before we get there, be sure to check...  [Posted on October 7, 2008 8:00 AM]

Officially The End

The end of the Cardinals postseason hopes, that is.  The Cards were able to win a game last night, which was a nice change of pace and guaranteed them at least a .500 record, but the Mets won as well,...  [Posted on September 24, 2008 8:12 AM]

The Worst of Times

OK, that's a great exaggeration.  But when you go into Wrigley and lose a series, that's always bad.  When the Cubs are able to clinch the division by beating you, that's much, much worse.To recap:FridayHero: Adam Kennedy.  Maybe he should...  [Posted on September 22, 2008 8:48 AM]

Around the Blogs: Walls Crashing Down

It's been, overall, a good season for the Cards, but the last few weeks have been on the rough side.  Touring around the blogs...........Even CardinalNationGlobe has given up the ghost on this year.  One of the last to succumb, but...  [Posted on September 18, 2008 12:33 PM]

The Final Nails

Wow.  Don't blog for a while and see what happens.  The Cardinals had been able to fool themselves that they were on the fringes of a wild-card race.  The last five days took care of that.WednesdayHero: Albert Pujols.  Two for...  [Posted on September 15, 2008 8:14 AM]

Two Out of Three Ain't Great

I know, I know.  You are supposed to just focus on winning series.  Win enough of them and you'll be on top at the end of the year.  But when it gets to this late in the season, when you...  [Posted on August 25, 2008 8:57 AM]

You Have GOT To Be Kidding

To paraphrase the version of Major League you'd find on your local cable provider, "One run? One lousy run?"If you'd told me before the game that the bullpen would blow up and the Cards would lose, I'd have believed you. ...  [Posted on August 20, 2008 7:50 AM]

Doing What Needs To Be Done

Twice this weekend I started on an entry, only to be interrupted by the family life.  So, our typical catchup entry:ThursdayHero: Tough call.  You either go with Ryan Ludwick, who drove in all three runs and had a home run,...  [Posted on August 18, 2008 7:59 AM]

Trust The Man

"Mostly the catcher had just a huge game," La Russa concluded. "Star of the game for me."Obviously, TLR meant to say Hero instead of Star, but there's no denying that Yadier Molina had the big game last night.  The go-ahead...  [Posted on August 12, 2008 8:22 AM]

Holiday Happenings

I really did mean to get to the computer this holiday weekend, but it didn't happen.  Let's take a look at the games in our own special way and then hit some of the other happenings.ThursdayHero: Yadier Molina.  Two hits,...  [Posted on July 7, 2008 8:10 AM]

Another Heartbreaker

For the second day in a row the bullpen couldn't protect a lead.  Albert Pujols capped a superior effort in his first game off the DL with an RBI single in the ninth to give the Cardinals a 2-1 lead;...  [Posted on June 27, 2008 9:25 AM]

Not Quite "Lonborg and Champagne", but We'll Take It

This blog's title is a reference to the famous Boston Globe headline before Game 7 of the 1967 World Series.  Jim Lonborg had already beaten the Cardinals twice in that series, throwing 2 complete games, allowing a total of 4...  [Posted on June 25, 2008 10:11 AM]

You Can't Win If You Don't Score - Cardinal70 Version

Removing The Ace From the House of Cards

I was off the Net, as it were, yesterday, so I had to do a double take when I saw the thread title at CCH last night.Wainwright to the DL?  Say it ain't so!"Surgery is not looking like something that...  [Posted on June 10, 2008 8:06 AM]

Losing Momentum

The glow from a nice road trip was quickly erased last night as the Cards lost their second in a row and their third straight Tuesday game (for what that's worth).Braden Looper easily gets the Goat tag.  Four runs down...  [Posted on May 28, 2008 7:41 AM]

Delay In Transmission

Sorry I've not been around.  Work and holiday weekends have conspired to keep me out of cyberspace for the most part.  I've got some interesting (to me) blog ideas, if I can ever just get around to writing.  Sadly, it...  [Posted on May 26, 2008 10:41 PM]

Disappointing Defeat

I'm out of the office the next couple of days, so I don't know how much posting I'll get done between now and Tuesday.  But let's throw up a quick one.Went to bed with the Cards up 2-0 and the...  [Posted on May 21, 2008 7:41 AM]

Era Ending? Edmonds Exits

The Padres have released Jim Edmonds.I don't think many of us really expected that when he was traded back in December.  Sure, the contract was up at the end of 2008, but he should be able to put together the...  [Posted on May 9, 2008 4:43 PM]


The Cards have been doing a lot of .500 ball playing lately.  They are 5-5 in their last 10, with a pattern of win two, lose one, win one, lose two, win one, lose two, win one.  It's a roller-coaster...  [Posted on April 25, 2008 10:29 AM]

The Wildest Times of the World

Lohse blowing a 2-0 lead.  Cards trailing 8-3.  Rallying for four, then scoring the tying run off a missed double play in the ninth.  12 innings.  Albert Pujols playing second.  And then the Brewer who scored the game winning run...  [Posted on April 23, 2008 8:59 AM]

Winning It The Hard Way

Adam Wainwright on the mound.  A pitcher the Cardinals beat around last week.  Should be an easy win, right?  With this year's bullpen, never say never.I'm not advocating that Wainwright should have stayed in the game, mind you.  At 99...  [Posted on April 22, 2008 9:18 AM]

Padding the Lead

Great start to the homestand by the Cards, as they take out their closest competitor and raise the lead in the Central to 1.5 games.Braden Looper pitched just well enough to win.  Five walks in five innings is asking for...  [Posted on April 16, 2008 9:32 AM]

Back on Track

The Cards go from their worst game of the year to possibly their best.Seriously, find me a Goat in that game!  We've got Schumaker and Barton throwing out back-to-back runners at the plate.  Lohse gives up two runs in 5...  [Posted on April 12, 2008 9:03 AM]

A Win On The Board

Nice to see a solid all-around game last night.  I didn't get to see much of it--that's the norm with two kids, dinner, etc. for the night games--but the parts I did see were pretty impressive.There were a few choices...  [Posted on April 3, 2008 9:14 AM]


So the Cards have a potent attack and great pitching in their "first" game, only to have it wiped away by rain.  So what do they come back with?  Well, at least the good pitching stuck around.First off, a new...  [Posted on April 2, 2008 8:57 AM]

Wash It Away

The Cardinals played some baseball yesterday.  You just can't prove it by the record book.It was a heck of a game for the 2 1/2 innings they played, though.  Adam Wainwright was probably a little overexcited about the Opening Day...  [Posted on April 1, 2008 10:44 AM]

Opening Day!

All the promise of the spring gets puts to the test as the daily "grind" starts.  I say grind, but that's only for the players.  For us fans, it's the most joyous of times.  Baseball, on every day.  The background...  [Posted on March 31, 2008 9:01 AM]

Weekend Wrap

Top of the mornin' to ya!  OK, that's enough Irish stuff.  Sure, it's St. Patrick's Day, but all that means is that there are teams out there that decide, "Hey, you know what?  We have no green in our color...  [Posted on March 17, 2008 9:14 AM]

Speaking Too Soon?

Brian, the head honcho here at Blogs By Fans, got me hooked up with an interesting activity: an e-mail round table about the Cardinals and their chances in 2008.  I was the least of the luminaries, sharing time with Dan...  [Posted on March 10, 2008 9:19 AM]

The Streak Continues

The Cardinals drop another one to the Nationals, 6-5.  Taking a look at the box score, what do we see?Well, Brian Barton apparently didn't care for my characterizing his spring as less than ideal.  He went 4 for 5 with...  [Posted on March 5, 2008 4:06 PM]

Scuffing Up the Start

It was a glorious day.  The Cardinals--well, at least the Baby Birds--were on the field and creating plenty of highlights.  The big guys were scheduled for the next day, really getting the freshness of spring going.And then Spiezio happened.I'm not...  [Posted on February 28, 2008 9:20 AM]

Santana and the Mets

Being that it's the biggest deal in a while to come down the pike, I guess I should mention a little something about the Johan Santana trade, even though it's not really connected to the Cardinals.  For complete coverage and...  [Posted on January 30, 2008 9:31 AM]

Happy New Year!

Hope everyone is having a great 2008 so far.  We are creeping closer and closer to spring training, which means that the Cardinals should start picking up the pace on transactions pretty soon. Here are some predictions for 2008.  Some...  [Posted on January 2, 2008 9:31 AM]

Cross One Off the Shopping List

Mark Prior is going to pitch for the Padres. While I would have liked the Cardinals to get him, the fact that he just wanted a one-year deal--and, apparently, that's what he got from San Diego--wouldn't have worked out for...  [Posted on December 26, 2007 2:10 PM]

Quick Hit

Just a short note, since I don't have much time today.  Not a lot going on in Cardinal Nation anyway. Cards are keeping an eye on Mark Prior, which is nice to know.  Of course, I've advocated for him in...  [Posted on December 20, 2007 9:26 AM]

New Cardinals, Former Cardinals

The Cardinals made a minor move yesterday, signing D'Angelo Jimenez to a minor league contract.  There are a couple of things that come to mind when I hear about Jimenez.  One is that, when they were coming up in the...  [Posted on December 19, 2007 10:01 AM]

More Random Thoughts

Judgment Day

Well, apparently, we get to talk about steroids again this weekend as a national baseball conversation. The Cardinal Connection: Rick Ankiel was let off the hook for his use of HGH in the past. "Insufficient evidence" is not exactly a...  [Posted on December 7, 2007 9:24 AM]

Dealing With The Devil

Some of the biggest news of the day (besides the always-inevitable Mike Hampton injury) is the news that the Cubs are actively looking to deal Mark Prior. If you've been a (relatively) long-time reader, you'll note that I discussed the...  [Posted on November 27, 2007 5:01 PM]

Rumor Check

First off, the rumor that died about as fast as it arose.  Apparently, Mike Lowell had been contacted by the Cardinals.  Bernie put that to bed pretty quickly, which was good, because it didn't really make much sense from the...  [Posted on November 15, 2007 11:25 AM]
