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 […]

Thankfully for you who appreciate my inane posts about baseball statistics, I should have some more free time to post on a regular basis. I’m gonna switch the format of this entry up a bit.

St. Louis Cardinals Playing at Historic Pace

Posted: May 11, 2012 at 12:58 am   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

If you’re not excited about Cardinals baseball by now, I dunno what to tell ya. This team is good. When Pujols departed for LA (or is it Anaheim? Whatever.), I kinda figured the team would take a bit of a hit on offense. Even with the signing of Carlos Beltran, there’s no way the team […]

Previewing the 2012 St. Louis Cardinals – Center Field

Posted: February 15, 2012 at 11:41 pm   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

Well, at the outset of the 2011 season, this position seemed like it’d be locked up by Colby Rasmus for the next decade. Rasmus was just coming off an underrated 2010 campaign (.276/.361/.498 with 23 HR and 66 RBI, his .859 OPS was tops among major league centerfielders who qualified for the batting title), and […]

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 […]

Posted: July 26, 2011 at 8:45 am   /   Film, Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

Well, what a busy weekend. We’ll start with the Cardinals’ fight for first place with Pittsburgh (when’s the last time anyone could write THAT?), and go through some of the trade rumors, and discuss baseball’s Hall of Fame, which inducted three new members over the weekend. * note* I was going to do a football […]
