As the Redbirds prepare to begin another road series, this one their first trip to Wrigley Field in 2013, they bring with them a 2013 MLB best seven-game road winning streak. By virtue of a three-game sweep in the nation’s capital and four games worth in Milwaukee, the Cards head into Chicago with an opportunity [...]

Sometime in mid-August (ok, August 12 to be exact – it’s right there on the Tweeter box) Cardinal fan Will Leitch began a dialogue “with” the Cardinals. Er, maybe AT the Cardinals is more appropriate. The first installment was posted yesterday. With Will’s permission, and maybe he’ll chime in with some of his own feedback [...]

Jon Jay remains the [...]

There really is no easy way to say “goodbye” to all 3 of our loyal readers.  Actually, I would not be even writing a goodbye post, if not for the amazing readers of this blog.  I feel I owe a bit in the way of an explanation to them.  For those of you who stumbled [...]

If you saw any baseball on this same day in 2011, you undoubtedly remember at least some sense of euphoria or bitter disappointment, or maybe even both simultaneously.  Game 162 for a good portion of the teams in MLB usually amounts to either one last opportunity to see prospects in game action or a chance [...]
