Current Cardinals

Tony LaRussa wanted the Cardinals to show they could win those games too. The 3-2 affairs, the 2-1 dances. The Cards proved they could win the close game on the back of (dare I say it?) a good performance by the bullpen. —– Chris Perez slammed a door. Kyle McClellan did his best Jason Isringhausen [...]

The Cards took two of three from the Wee Bears this weekend, continuing their strong play at home.  Sunday was a different story at Busch III unfortunately, but we’re choosing to stay on the postitve side regarding overall outcome of the series. A few quick hitters this morning, then we focus on the Braves: —– [...]

Cardinal fans, pray for good results from the MRI done on Kyle Lohse’s right knee yesterday.  What looked like an innocent tweak of the ankle and a stubborn starter trying to finish five and get the win quickly turned into another waiting and wishing game for Cardinal fans. Where do they go if Lohse winds [...]

What a two game stretch for the Cardinals, eh? After flipping the switch on the typical bullpen story Tuesday night, the Cards were pretty dominant from wire-to-wire last night. Joel Pineiro was economical, efficient, and overall outstanding.  He gave the bullpen some rest after lots of work Tuesday night, not to mention being short two [...]

Days like today renew my interest in baseball. The Cards took a tough loss on the chin Saturday afternoon, they lost an opportunity to strike back yesterday because of weather, and today was a scheduled day off. I took the opportunity to listen to the Memphis Redbirds play in Oklahoma City versus the Redhawks. The [...]

The Cardinals have made a move to bolster (???) their bullpen, in the wake of several rough outings for the season. Brian Barton, a Rule 5 draft selection a year ago, is headed to the Atlanta Braves for right-handed relief pitcher Blaine Boyer. Boyer hasn’t been a world-beater, but maybe Dave Duncan sees something he [...]

I know, I know – here we go again. Many of you have no doubt read all of the things Tony has done wrong over at the STLToday.com Cards Talk forums.  You know the routine over there -  “the season is over,” “Tony must go,” “why didn’t they sign a closer?” – those type of [...]

Is anyone else becoming mildly concerned about Adam Wainwright’s seemingly sudden inability to throw strikes? I know, small sample size and all, but the sample size continues to grow with no marked improvement.  It should also be noted that he had this same problem in the spring, struggling to get in a groove and running [...]
