Sizing up the Cardinals’ Post-Season Chances

by Steve Kelley / Published: 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

by Steve Kelley / Published: 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?

by Steve Kelley / Published: 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 […]

by Steve Kelley / Published: 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 […]

Carpenter Facing Possibility of Season-Ending Surgery

by Steve Kelley / Published: July 3, 2012 at 3:23 pm   /   Local, St. Louis Cardinals

A lot of my friends have been asking me about when Chris Carpenter might be coming back. There have been a few updates recently, but unless you’re scouring the sports pages or reading the Cardinals’ site, you probably missed it. After seeking another specialist last week, Carpenter was diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome. I […]

The Cardinals’ Week in Review: A 180 or 360?

by Steve Kelley / Published: July 1, 2012 at 1:49 pm   /   Local, St. Louis Cardinals

Well, the Cardinals appeared to have turned the page on the season with the return of Jon Jay and Matt Carpenter, winning five straight before dropping the final game in Miami. Unfortunately, the problems which have plagued the Cardinals all season (inconsistent hitting, a decimated bullpen) have reared their head in recent days, and the […]

St. Louis Cardinals Gain Traction, Sweep Kansas City Royals

by Steve Kelley / Published: June 24, 2012 at 7:28 pm   /   Local, St. Louis Cardinals

Holy cow, it’s been a while since I last wrote about the Cardinals. My apologies; life for the last two months has been nothing but a groundswell of beer festivals and movie reviews. Now that the beer festivals are mostly done for the summer, I’ll be back to writing on a more frequent basis. Thanks […]

by Steve Kelley / Published: February 26, 2012 at 8:46 pm   /   Film, Local

Part one covered the first two spots in the rotation for the Cardinals, which is a pretty potent ace combination. This isn’t a unique situation, though, as there are many teams around the league with a strong 1-2 combo. What sets the Cardinals apart from most teams (aside from teams such as the Phillies and […]

St. Louis Cardinals: Birds at the Break

by Steve Kelley / Published: July 14, 2011 at 6:25 am   /   Local, St. Louis Cardinals, Television

Raise your hand if you predicted the Cardinals would be in a tie for first at the All Star Break. Liar. Most people certainly didn’t. I didn’t. Call them what you want, this team is certainly exciting and fun to watch. The Cardinals finish the first 92 games with a record of 49-43. Six over […]

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

by Steve Kelley / Published: 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 […]
