Current Cardinals

Adam Wainwright got back on track with a start we all knew he could make.  Kyle Lohse made a start that was very capable and within himself.  Todd Wellemeyer didn’t do too badly himself. Take away a bloop single that Chris Duncan Soriano-ed (ok, and the wild pitch too), and this was a very successful [...]

I submit as even further evidence that Ryan Ludwick is having an off-the-charts season and should be an All-Star, the Fungoes list of Cardinals’ Worst and Best Cleanup Hitters Since 1956.  Ludwick’s current pace is second only behind Mark McGwire’s torrid pace to begin the 2000 season prior to the knee problems that eventually ended [...]

The Cards enjoyed a day in the sun yesterday in Los Angeles before starting up their weekend series with the Dodgers tonight at Dodger Stadium. The off-day should be very beneficial to the Redbirds, allowing Rick Ankiel one more day to rest that bum shoulder (although the bomb he hit out of Petco the other [...]

Derrick Goold had a great write-up on Ryan Ludwick’s season-to-date (as well as stats going back to September 2007) over at his Bird Land blog today. The numbers Luddy has put up so far this season are really staggering when put in context with some of the other great hitters off to great starts this [...]

Joel Pineiro goes and gives up a home run.  Sigh. I was all stoked to get up this morning and write a big, long detailed post about how the Cardinals had found their mojo back.  After the 8-2 drubbing they put on the Padres Monday night, it seemed the offense had perhaps found a stride.  [...]

Anti-Izzy part Two

by on May 18, 2008 · 2 comments

Skip Schumaker has ex-OR-cised the demons!  Chris Perez had another solid outing, only needing 5 pitches to get through the top of the ninth and earn his first big-league win. What a great weekend for the Cardinals and their fans.  Stan Musial, all-time Cardinal great, was honored today with Stan Musial Day, they unveiled a [...]

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 [...]
