Cardinals Rally, End Half on High Note

Posted: July 8, 2012 at 9:06 pm   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

Don’t look now, but (knock on wood) the Cardinals may be setting themselves up for a fantastic second half. With health comes good fortune, and thanks to the energetic returns of Skip Schumaker and Jon Jay, the Cardinals have been playing with resolve the last three weeks, and it’s shown. Since their return, when the […]

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

Posted: 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 […]

In-Flight Turbulence: St. Louis Cardinals Battered, But Not Beaten

Posted: May 23, 2012 at 5:15 am   /   Featured, Local, St. Louis Cardinals

Ask a dozen baseball experts who will win the World Series and who will win all the major awards, and there’s a good chance you’ll get a dozen different answers. There’s also a good chance you’ll get a dozen wrong answers. No matter how much you know about the game, it’s just about impossible to […]

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 – Left Field

Posted: February 13, 2012 at 10:34 pm   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

Hey there, sorry for the hiatus. I’m sure both of you noticed. Matt Holliday, 7 2011 statistics – .296/.388/.525, 22 HR, 75 RBI, 0 SB, All Star 2011 was a pretty weird season for Matt Holliday. There was the time he got appendicitis. There was the time he got a moth in his ear. There […]

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 […]

Why They Play the Game

Posted: October 17, 2011 at 11:18 pm   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

With the loss of Adam Wainwright before spring training even got fully underway, most pundits decided to write the St. Louis Cardinals off. It is, after all, pretty tough to win anything when you lose your ace, let alone a 20-game winner who’s placed in the top 3 of the Cy Young voting the last […]

Sprint Mode – The St. Louis Cardinals

Posted: August 17, 2011 at 2:16 pm   /   Film, Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

I’ve come to the realization that the Cardinals this season are much like my ex: immensely frustrating at times, but always tempting enough to lure me back from time to time. They also never cook for me and pretend they don’t know me in public. With 39 games remaining, the Cardinals have essentially backed themselves […]

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 […]

St. Louis Cardinals: Birds at the Break

Posted: 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 […]
