…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 [...]
I got a late start on this one – joining MLB.tv in the top of the 2nd, Cardinals up 1-0 and Troy Glaus just got hit with a pitch… EDIT: Hey hey! Albert hit one out! Looks like he only needed a few innings off, not a whole game.
As a big, big Jimmy Edmonds fan, this news makes me sad. I’ll always remember the 2004 NLCS, Jim. Ken Rosenthal of FoxSports.com, reports: Jim Edmonds’ tenure with the Padres lasted 26 games. The Padres plan to release the center fielder, whom they acquired last Dec. 15 from the Cardinals. An announcement is expected Friday. [...]
It’s time for Ryan Ludwick to get his shot to start full-time. Luddy just completed a 9-13 trip through Denver, tallying 3 home runs and 6 RBI in the process. That’s good for a .693 batting average and an OPS of 2.282. And yet he only started 3 of the 4 games out there. For [...]
