St. Louis Cardinals – One Last Measure

Posted: October 23, 2012 at 12:28 am   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

Baseball is a game of measurement. One hit ball a half inch lower on the barrel could mean the difference between a 90-foot pop up and a 400-foot home run. One short stride can mean the difference between an inning-ending double play and another chance to score a run. One thrown pitch six inches across […]

Sizing up the Cardinals’ Post-Season Chances

Posted: September 25, 2012 at 3:48 pm   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

Oh hey there. Been a while. Welp, we’re quickly approaching that magical time of the year: October. You really can’t beat fall in terms of sports. Post-season baseball. College football. Pro football (well, the players are professional, anyway; the officials…). Hockey (usually [:(]). While it’s pretty unlikely we’ll ever see another post-season run like we […]

Cardinals Gain Ground, Pirates Continue Falter

Posted: August 19, 2012 at 12:37 pm   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

Stop me if you’ve heard this one. After a terrific start to the season, the Pirates may be running out of steam. On August 8, they were 16 games over .500. Since then, they’ve lost seven of their last ten games. Meanwhile, the Cardinals have been in a bit of a holding pattern this past […]

Cardinals Rolling; Pirates, Reds Hearing Footsteps?

Posted: August 12, 2012 at 12:28 am   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

The Cardinals took yet another game tonight, scoring four off Phillies ace Cliff Lee and closing out a 4-1 win. Don’t look now, but this team is rolling. Wait a minute, you might be saying. They just lost two to San Francisco and lost last night, right? That they did, including a 15-0 stinker laid […]

Cardinals Sweep Cubs, 2 Games out of Wild Card Spot

Posted: July 22, 2012 at 8:42 pm   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

Well, this was a fun weekend. After a disheartening road trip that saw the Cardinals lose five out of six to the Reds and Brewers, the Cardinals absolutely exploded against the Cubs this weekend, outscoring them by a 23-1 margin and outhitting them 38-17. Thanks to a hockey-related bet with my lovely friend Christine (who […]

Cards Sweep Arizona, Get Swept by Atlanta

Posted: May 13, 2012 at 10:59 pm   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

Just as quickly as a team can get hot, the tables can turn that quickly against them. Just after the Cardinals put together their finest series of the season against the D-Backs, they came home and got steamrolled by the Atlanta Braves. The offense wasn’t terrible (although their runs per game average did drop a […]

A Look at the Cardinals; Best Baseball Player Names EVER

Posted: March 25, 2012 at 4:47 pm   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

Well, here we are, with spring training well into its twilight (sidenote, I still shudder every time I write the word twilight), so with a week to go I thought I’d take a look at the status of the Birds. Most of the starters are locked in, but there are a few key position battles […]

Previewing the 2012 St. Louis Cardinals – Right Field

Posted: February 18, 2012 at 4:20 pm   /   Film, Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

Of all the positions that pose question marks for the Cardinals, none may be more high risk/high reward than right field. After the Cardinals lost Albert Pujols to the Angels, the question arose as to who would replace his presence in the lineup. While you can’t really replace one of the greatest hitters ever, the […]

Previewing the 2012 St. Louis Cardinals – First Base

Posted: January 27, 2012 at 12:56 am   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

For the first time since 2003, the St. Louis Cardinals will open the season with a first baseman not named Albert Pujols. I’ll let that sink in. Stings the nostrils. I’ve already shared my¬†thoughts on Albert and his defection to the Angels, so I won’t delve back into that. Re-hashing the past isn’t what ReviewSTL […]

Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can’t Lose: St. Louis Cardinals Win World Series

Posted: October 29, 2011 at 11:06 am   /   Featured, Film, Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

Sorry, Friday Night Lights. I’m borrowing your line. People tend to overuse superlatives to the point that they become hyperbole. Greatest ever. Best ever. Most incredible. Blah blah blah. The problem is, I don’t know how else to describe the last two months of baseball. When the Cardinals woke up on August 25, they had […]
