MLB Week 1 Recap: Cardinals Go 3-1, Cubs Officially Eliminated from Contention

Posted: April 8, 2012 at 8:12 pm   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

The first week of the season’s come and gone, and I’m happy to report that the Cardinals managed to come out of Milwaukee with a 3-1 record (for the sake of convenience, I tend to start the sports week on Monday and end it on Sunday). Opening up with the first regular season game in […]

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 […]

St. Louis Cardinals Win World Series Game 6. Ten Down, One to Go.

Posted: October 28, 2011 at 7:30 am   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

There comes a point in time where words are simply insufficient. There are things in nature you just can’t describe. How do you describe something’s color? With another color. Well, how do you describe that color? And so on. This game started off with the makings of possibly the worst, least climactic World Series clincher […]

St. Louis Cardinals Win NLCS, Enter World Series. Four More to Go.

Posted: October 17, 2011 at 1:10 am   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

It has to start somewhere. Believe it or not, we owe a few members of the Milwaukee Brewers organization thanks. Thanks, Prince Fielder, for hitting the game-winning home run in the All Star game to give us home field advantage. Thanks, Ron Roenicke, for continuing to pitch to David Freese, even though he was absolutely […]

Lohse Falls 1 inning, 7 Hits, 3 Runs, 2 HR Shy of Perfect Game

Posted: June 23, 2011 at 9:31 am   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

Every time he steps on the mound, Kyle Lohse strives for perfection. He came up just short on Wednesday night, missing throwing a perfect game by only one inning, seven hits, two home runs, and three earned runs. Lohse has, for the most part, had an excellent season bouncing back from surgery. Perhaps best-known this […]

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 […]

Halcyon Days

Posted: June 1, 2010 at 8:33 am   /   Local, St. Louis Cardinals

I hope you folks are enjoying this stretch of Cardinals baseball. For the first two months of the season, the pitching carried the team while the defense and offense sorta straggled along. I said at the beginning of the season, if we can get the lineup going, we’ll have one of the best in baseball. […]

Role Reversal – St. Louis Cardinals Baseball

Posted: May 24, 2010 at 9:21 am   /   Local, St. Louis Cardinals

Well, after the Cardinals hit the first official rough patch of the season, they managed to rebound nicely and go 5-2 this last week, taking both games from the Nationals, splitting with the Marlins, and ganking two out of three with the Angels. Hopefully you especially enjoyed the series against the Angels, as they’re often […]

Seein’ Red – St. Louis Cardinals Baseball

Posted: May 18, 2010 at 9:30 am   /   Local, St. Louis Cardinals

Well for the first time since last July, the Cardinals are no longer in first place. Granted, they are just a half-game back. But for the first time all season, the Cardinals’ struggles offensively has been matched with a bit of a lull from the starting rotation. The Cardinals’ pitching staff still ranks fourth in […]
