Playoffs

I expected to have more time to process the end of the Cardinals season – to savor it, if you will.  But between the abrupt collapse of the hometown club in the NLCS and the quick work the Giants made of the Tigers in the World Series – all of a sudden baseball is totally [...]

The 2012 season for the St. Louis Cardinals came to a rather abrupt, sobering halt tonight.  Taking time to reflect and collect one’s thoughts before writing a post-mortem might be a savvy move.  I am not that man.  So, please go elsewhere for brevity, hat tipping, and the usual exchange of pleasantries that often follows [...]

Rally Unicorn Time

After the Giants took to Twitter to make some rather unoriginal topics trend on Twitter last night, I think it only right to fight fire with a nuclear unicorn weapon.  Of course, the hashtags in use have no impact on the game, but they provide a cathartic release for those of us who are sick [...]

Just like that, less than 48 hours removed from another thrilling do-or-die postseason victory, the Cardinals have negated the San Francisco Giants’ home-field advantage by winning Game One of the NLCS. The win wasn’t without its own fair share of heartburn, though, as the hometown Giants tried their best to replicate the Cards’ miracle comeback [...]

The moment Jayson Werth pulled an Adam Wainwright offering to left field for a double, it seemed like the Cardinals might be in for a long, long night.  When Wainwright has it all going good, he does not give up a lot of extra base hits.  When he doesn’t, you get Bryce Harper following Werth [...]

Joe Kelly and Trevor Rosenthal made their postseason debuts on Monday, each successfully preventing the Nationals from scoring a run in their respective innings pitched. With the addition of Kelly and Rosenthal to the roll, the Cardinals have employed sixteen rookie pitchers in the postseason since 2000.  With one glaring exception (Mike Matthews in 2001), [...]

Jaime Garcia departed yesterday’s NLDS game after just 2 innings and 51 pitches.  Though he appeared to labor through those 2 innings, his command and control didn’t appear all that bad, and his velocity seemed normal.  He just seemed ineffective in giving up an earned run, 2 hits, and 3 walks.  It was not until [...]
