Cards Sweep Bucs, Roll Brew Crew

Posted: September 11, 2013 at 12:54 pm   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

Well well well. This was supposed to be a make-or-break stretch for the Cardinals. After struggling a bit in August, going through a stretch of 17 games against three of the top teams in baseball was envisioned by some to be the point at which the Cardinals would have to play for a wild card […]

The 30-year-old right-hander was dominating in 2011 racking up 46 saves (part of […]

As the summer draws to a close, many families are looking for that one last mini-vacation to take over the Labor Day weekend.  Going to the lake, camping, or heading up to Chicago are pretty common destinations for St. Louis residents.  I want to offer another option:  Springfield, Missouri.  More specifically Hammons Field, home of […]

A Whole New Ballgame: Cards, Bucs Tied for First

Posted: August 26, 2013 at 1:18 pm   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

Hitters have slumps and hot streaks. Pitchers go through nights where they have complete command and throw shutouts; other nights, they’re fighting themselves on every pitch. The team as a whole, though, is a different animal. Putting together lengthy win streaks is great, of course, but as a whole, a team must rely on a […]

Cardinals Pull Within One Game of Pittsburgh

Posted: August 19, 2013 at 2:14 pm   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

Well hey, don’t look now, but the Cardinals actually managed to play some solid ball this past week. Yes, I know, earlier this season, 4-2 would be par for the course, perhaps even mediocre, but with the post-season woes the team’s gone through, a 4-2 week is a welcome respite, especially coming against Pittsburgh and […]

Cardinals Crush Reds, Rebound in Road Finale

Posted: August 5, 2013 at 12:03 pm   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

Well then. Baseball’s a funny sport sometimes. Really, all the time. The unlikeliest of heroes can step up at any time, while the most dependable hitters can end up wearing the golden sombrero when it counts the most. The least successful teams in baseball will still win about 40% of the time, while even the […]

Posted: July 30, 2013 at 10:40 pm   /   Local, St. Louis Cardinals

To update my earlier article on the Cardinals’ potential trades, the organization did complete a trade this afternoon sending left-handed relief pitcher Marc Rzepczynski to the Indians in exchange for infielder Juan Herrera. Rzepczynski was acquired in 2011 by the Cardinals and was an integral player on the 2011 World Series winning team.  In 2012 […]

Posted: July 30, 2013 at 10:13 pm   /   Local, St. Louis Cardinals

With the MLB trade deadline now just a day away (Wednesday 3pm) it seems less and less likely that the Cardinals will be making a trade.  This year so far has been relatively quiet around the league; the Cubs have had their fire sale moving Matt Garza and Alfonso Soriano, but as of yet no […]
