Furcal to Have Tommy John; Where do the Cardinals Go From Here?

Posted: March 7, 2013 at 10:53 pm   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Blues

In a move that’s come as an absolute surprise to nobody, Cardinals shortstop Rafael Furcal has elected to undergo Tommy John surgery (for the uninitiated, TJ is ligament replacement surgery in the elbow), meaning he will miss the 2013 season. Furcal felt a pop making a throw in a game against the Nationals on August […]

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 […]

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 […]

St. Louis Cardinals Playing at Historic Pace

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

Previewing the 2012 St. Louis Cardinals – Shortstop

Posted: February 2, 2012 at 12:14 am   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

For the Cardinals, shortstop’s been one of the weaker positions the past few years. Ever since Edgar Renteria signed with Boston after the 2004 season, the Cardinals have been clamoring to find a shortstop that can offer solid defense with a decent stick. David Eckstein was decent, but not spectacular, at both. Cesar Izturis was […]

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 […]
