I have a tendency to be a bit of an optimist when it comes to things like this, and only the highest-paid psychologists could really understand what goes on in a professional athlete’s mind. But could yesterday’s 10-inning, walk-off home run win against the Rays be what turns this team back around? Could this convince [...]

The Cardinals made the expected move today, sending one-time closer Jason Isringhausen to a DL stint, and calling up Chris Perez from AAA Memphis. One can only wonder if this is the end of Izzy’s rope, with this being the final year of his contract. Godspeed Izzy. Get your arm worked out and get back [...]

The last three games have been the most frustrating series for me in recent memory as a Cards fan. If anyone ever needed a lesson in how to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, they only need look as far as the replays of the Cardinals’ three-game set with the Pirates, finished up this [...]

…when Mark McGwire would come to the plate, usually in a big-time game situation, and you knew, you just knew that Big Mac was going to hit one out? I remember it vividly. It was almost as if McGwire made it his personal mission to make sure that everyone who saw a Cards game in [...]

Jason Isringhausen was able to get some work in last night after the Cards got some insurance runs, making the game a non-save situation. Izzy threw 15 pitches, 10 for strikes for a line of: J Isringhausen 1.0 0 0 0 0 0 0 15-10 While he still left a couple of balls up that [...]

It’s been rumored for days, but Jim Edmonds’ signing with the Cubs is seemingly imminent upon passing a physical, according to ESPN. Despite it being the Cubs, I will root for Jimmy to do well (as long as they aren’t playing the Cardinals). He’s just one of those former ‘Birds who holds a special place [...]

The Cards need a big win here tonight to get back on track. Lohse on the mound… Lefty Phil Dumatrait on the mound for the Pirates. Go Cards!

Yadier Molina was ejected from last night’s debacle in Milwaukee after arguing balls and strikes. LaRussa was also ejected, after coming to Yadi’s defense. Now, obviously this opinion will vary between those who live in St. Louis and/or are Cardinals fans and those who don’t like the Cards. But after seeing the video of the [...]

In the fifth inning of Friday night’s loss to the Brewers, Tony Gwynn Jr. reached first on an error by Todd Wellemeyer, followed by a particularly useless throw to first by third base fill-in Brendan Ryan. Wellemeyer proceeded to throw over to first, then pitch out, throw a strike, throw over to first again, then [...]

I know, I know. This has been widely debated across many teams’ fan bases. Hear me out. I think ‘ole Derrick has just enough gumption to reject an assignment to AAA – thus negating his contract with the Brewers and making him a free agent at any price. (If the Cardinals were to claim him [...]
