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, […]

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, […]

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 […]

St. Louis Cardinals Land John Axford, Reshuffle Bullpen

Posted: August 30, 2013 at 4:11 pm   /   Local, St. Louis Cardinals

The Cardinals are preparing for the stretch run by adding some bullpen depth, acquiring John Axford from the Brewers in a trade this morning.   Milwaukee will send their former closer to the Cards in exchange for a player to be named later. The 30-year-old right-hander was dominating in 2011 racking up 46 saves (part of […]

The Future of the St. Louis Cardinals is Just Under Four Hours Away

Posted: August 28, 2013 at 3:15 pm   /   Local, St. Louis Cardinals

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 […]
