Cardinals blew their chances

April 18, 2010


As above average the Cardinals’ offense has been so far this season, Saturday’s classic 20-inning game showed me a different story. At least three times in extra innings, the Cardinals had chances to win, even loading the bases a couple of times. And in both of those times, the Cardinals blew it. Save for Yadi’s […]

Opening Day

April 5, 2010


Ever since the New York Yankees won their 27th World Series title, baseball fans have been waiting for this day. Opening day. In Cincinnati, the Cardinals, whose biggest acquistions in the offseason was hiring Mark McGwire as the new hitting coach, will start their season today with Chris Carpenter going to the mound against Aaron […]

The White Rat gets his due

December 8, 2009


Over two decades ago, speed and small-ball was the name of the game in baseball. Of course, there were sluggers like Darryl Strawberry, Kevin Mitchell, George Bell, and Andre Dawson, but “Whiteyball” was the name of the game in the 1980’s, thanks in part to Whitey Herzog, who managed both the Kansas City Royals and […]

The greatest living Cardinal lineup

July 14, 2009


Few baseball franchises can merit the type of success that the St. Louis Cardinals has amassed over its existence. 10 World Series titles, 17 National League Appearances, countless Hall-of-Famers, and by far the best fans in America when it comes to baseball. But after talking with Cub fan Dave Wischnosky about my pick for the […]

Postseason experience not needed

November 18, 2008


Two years ago when the Cardinals won their 10th world championship, many of us in the Cardinal Nation was certain that El Hombre would win the National League MVP because of the numbers he put up in the regular season. I mean, come on, it was a shoo-in, right? Wrong. That year, Phillies first baseman […]
