Busch Stadium

Entertain this post in the hypothetical, if you will. Its July 12th, 2010, the All-Star Break, and all is terribly wrong in the world of Cardinal Nation. Forget the relatively frigid weather of the winter and indulge yourself in a warm summer day. Don’t get too comfortable though. After all, it’s not the Winter-Warmup that [...]

[Ed. note - I know it's July.  I know I'm about four-ish weeks late with this post.  Sue me.  Better late than never, right?] I was lucky growing up where I did, about a half-hour east of St Louis – “on the Illinois side.” I was able to attend Cardinal games fairly regularly, thanks to [...]

Yesterday afternoon’s game obviously requires some revisiting.  Yes, I was hoping not to feel like 2008 all over again until later in the season.  Yes, the Cardinals have already logged two blown saves for the season in just one game.  Yes, we will live to play another day. Fer chris’sakes people, it was only the [...]

Those of you listening to 1380 in St Louis today may find this duplicative, same if you read Bernie’s Press Box over at the STLToday forums. If you fit into neither of those groups, this may provide helpful for you.  I listened to Bernie’s segment with Cardinals GM John Mozeliak this afternoon, and there were [...]
