2014 St. Louis Cardinals Preview – Catchers

Posted: January 30, 2014 at 9:58 pm   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

Two more wins. That’s all they needed. In a season where the Cardinals managed a total of 106 wins (regular and post-season), all they had to do was win two more, and the Commissioner’s Trophy would have found its way yet again to the Gateway to the West. In 2011, they won a total of […]

St. Louis Rams’ Robert Quinn Racks Up Post Season Honors

Posted: January 23, 2014 at 8:15 am   /   Local, St. Louis Rams

The 2013 campaign for the St. Louis Rams kept fans on an emotional roller coaster all season long.  There were  the highs of blowout wins over Chicago, Indy, and New Orleans, the emergence of Zac Stacy as a feature back, and Tavon Austin racking up 3 touchdowns of over 55 yards in a little over […]

Hot Stove Edition: Where do the Cardinals go from here?

Posted: November 25, 2013 at 9:42 pm   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

So. I’d began writing the draft of a Hot Stove Preview for the Cardinals, but then I got lazy and completely forgot to finish it up. In the meantime, the Cardinals managed to solve their two biggest positional problems via trades and free agency. Where does that leave this article? Good question. Obviously the Cardinals […]

St. Louis Cardinals Trade David Freese to Angels for Peter Bourjos

Posted: November 22, 2013 at 4:07 pm   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

After a less-than-stellar 2013 campaign and post-season, the Cardinals have sent David Freese to keep Albert Pujols company in Anaheim. In addition, they’re sending reliever Fernando Salas, who played a vital part in the Cardinals’ s011 championship season but has been used sparingly the last two years. In exchange, the Cardinals get outfielder Peter Bourjos […]

Steve’s Preview of the 2013 World Series

Posted: October 20, 2013 at 9:28 pm   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

So. Here we are again, facing off with Boston for the World Series title, just like in 2004. Or is it? As much as people are clamoring to call this a re-match, in all reality there too much about it that’s a re-match. The fact is, only one active player on each side was even […]

We Own The Night: 7 Down, 4 To Go.

Posted: October 18, 2013 at 10:53 pm   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

First, they knocked out America’s Cinderella team in the NLDS. Despite Pittsburgh’s first winning season since 1992, they just couldn’t keep up. Next came “America’s Team,” apparently. Perhaps the only other team with a comparable history to the Cardinals, the Dodgers boasted two of the best pitchers in the National League. Our apologies, Dodgers fans, […]

This is the year. If you are a Blues fan, this is what’ve you’ve continually been chanting for the past few decades.  The team has had no shortage of skilled teams that should’ve gone all the way, and yet they’ve failed to close in on Lord Stanley’s Cup. So, here it is again. This is […]

3 Down. 8 To Go.

Posted: October 10, 2013 at 2:13 am   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

That curveball. I’ve seen it somewhere before. Watching Wainwright face down Alvarez in the ninth, once he got him 0-2, everyone knew, just knew, that filthy curveball was coming. I bet you even Alvarez knew Uncle Charlie was coming to pay him a visit. And even so, he whiffed worse than I do when I ask […]

Posted: October 2, 2013 at 8:21 pm   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

Thank you, and welcome to the First Annual Stevo Awards! It’s an honor to be here. I even dressed up for the occasion.   To commemorate the end of the season, I figured I’d give out the prestigious Stevo Awards. Matt Carpenter and Yadier Molina should receive some votes for MVP, and Shelby Miller has […]

Cardinals Clinch Post-Season Berth; Steve Tries to Explain the Tie-Breakers

Posted: September 22, 2013 at 11:55 pm   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

Even with a loss today, the Cardinals managed to slip into the post-season. With Washington’s loss in the first game of their double-header today, the Cardinals officially clinched a post-season spot. Although the Cardinals lost tonight 6-4, they still remain two games ahead of both Pittsburgh and Cincinnati. After splitting the four-game series in Colorado, […]
