Pujols Wins Second Gold Glove, Aims for Second Rookie of the Year in ’11

Posted: November 11, 2010 at 10:54 am   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

Congrats to both St. Louis Cardinals who managed to take home Gold Gloves in 2010, Albert Pujols and Yadier Molina. For Molina, it was his third consecutive award; Pujols grabbed his second award, his first since 2006. Arguably two more Cardinals could have won the award, Adam Wainwright (the 2009 winner) and Brendan Ryan. Certainly […]

Tempered Hope: Rams Lose, Show Promise

Posted: September 12, 2010 at 7:36 pm   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals, St. Louis Rams

I think football’s back in St. Louis. Welcome back on the bandwagon. Seems like most of you left the last few years. The Rams lost today to the Arizona Cardinals 17-13, but all around town, there seems to be the sense of renewed hope for the coming years. Obviously the big story is going to […]

Feeley Hurt, Rams Fans Rejoice

Posted: August 23, 2010 at 8:18 am   /   Film, Local, St. Louis Cardinals, St. Louis Rams

Ok, the headline’s a bit apocryphal. I hope, anyway. Playing in what looked to be a monsoon, the Rams gutted out a 19-17 win at Cleveland. It certainly wasn’t the prettiest win, and it was a pre-season game, but hey, any port in a storm. Thoughts on the game: – A.J. Feeley isn’t ready to […]

Posted: August 17, 2010 at 9:46 am   /   Film, Local, St. Louis Cardinals

Making his first start since May, Kyle Lohse thinks he could have done more to help the Cardinals lose the game. “Next time, I’m going to do my best to give up ten [runs],” he stated. Noting he was unhappy with his contract situation with the Cardinals, he added, “I’ve got a family to feed.” […]

Brandon Phillips Wants to Play Cardinals With One Leg, Can’t Win With Two

Posted: August 11, 2010 at 1:37 pm   /   Film, Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

Well then. Pretty much every part of the Sea of Red here in St. Louis has heard about the inflammatory comments Brandon Phillips made regarding the Cardinals. If you didn’t read them, here they are, in all their inane glory: “I’d play against these guys on one leg. We have to beat these guys. All […]

Cardinals Recap/Trade Thoughts

Finally, another sweet. Granted, this time it was against the Pittsburgh Pirates. But, any port in a storm. What went right this weekend for the Cardinals? Offense The offense finally got going this weekend, Friday night notwithstanding (although they did manage nine hits). Albert Pujols went 5 for 13 with two home runs and three […]

“One hit? One g*damn hit?”

Posted: July 23, 2010 at 8:26 am   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

I think it’s safe to say that for the finale of the series with the Phillies, the Cardinals went out with a whimper. The Cardinals managed one hit and two walks in 11 innings yesterday while losing 2-0 to the Phillies. Tip your cap to Cole Hamels; he simply was on. Adam Wainwright was effective […]

Halfway Home: The St. Louis Cardinals at the All-Star Break

Posted: July 13, 2010 at 11:15 am   /   Local, St. Louis Cardinals

With the All-Star game tonight marking the slightly-over-halfway point of the season, it’s a good time to look over how the Cardinals have done thus far. At 47-41, it’s safe to say thus far the results have been a little underwhelming. Like me with my women, the Cardinals started off strong before they faltered and […]
