How the Cardinals turned a sweep into a 1-for-3 series

by Nick May 16, 2008

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 [...]

Remember that feeling you had in ’98…

by Nick May 15, 2008

…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 [...]

Izzy works 1-2-3 inning

by Nick May 15, 2008

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 [...]

Jimmy Baseball to sign with Cubs

by Nick May 14, 2008

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 [...]

Yadier ejected – leaves gear in case Tony wants to catch

by Nick May 13, 2008

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 [...]

Kendall throws bat at pitch

by Nick May 12, 2008

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 [...]

Should the Cardinals trade for Derrick Turnbow?

by Nick May 9, 2008

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 [...]

05.09.08 – Cardinals vs. Brewers

by Nick May 9, 2008

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.

Padres to release Jim Edmonds

by Nick May 9, 2008

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. [...]
