Cardinal Nation

MLB absolutely despises, detests, and hates Cardinal Nation.  Even that might not explain the completely irrational decision to schedule game 3 of the NLDS between the Cardinals and Nationals at 1:07 pm (ET) on Wednesday.  On MLB Network.  Maybe they are concerned about all the millions of baseball fans in the Czech Republic and Oman [...]

That’s right.  We’re breaking out the “fancy” sweatpants for a shindig that starts this coming Saturday, and no expense shall be spared in the process (and by that I mean I’m getting my sweatpants dry-cleaned for the occasion).  The Cardinals have plans to host the United Cardinal Bloggers at Busch Stadium.  Shocking, but the organization [...]

Jon Jay plays center field with the same fearless disrespect for inertia and personal safety that Jim Edmonds had when he played the same position years ago.  Maybe that’s why so many fans in St. Louis believe Jon Jay deserves a Gold Glove award this year.  Maybe he does, and maybe he doesn’t.  Carefully consider [...]

Indeed, as the marketing campaign for the Cardinals says, “We Are Cardinal Nation”.  At least that’s what I’ve been hearing.  Seems a bit pompous at times, but I suppose winning the World Series of American Baseball entitles the victor to a short bombastic honeymoon. If you only see the officially released campaign material, you might [...]

Cards Get Social

As you can see from the look on McKayla Maroney’s face, McKayla is not impressed with Social Media Night at Busch Stadium.  Perhaps she was not alone, either.  An extremely unscientific and informal poll of random people who attended Social Media Night on Wednesday left me with the impression that people were generally unimpressed with [...]

When Jason Motte gave up a 9th inning home run to Paul Goldschmidt last night, a good portion of Cardinal Nation on the tweeter machine questioned everything from the pitch selection to the height of Motte’s socks.  While hindsight may indeed be 20/20, the postmortem approach to analyzing pitch outcomes still leaves some questions unanswered.  [...]

The Cardinals won the 2011 World Series and sit at 10 games above the .500 mark, but Olympic Gold Medalist McKayla Maroney is not the least bit impressed.  The “McKayla is not impressed” meme was started shortly after Maroney showed a visible sign of annoyance/displeasure at the XXX Olympics in London.  Since most people expect [...]

Apparently, Skip’s generosity brings all the stars to the yard (or the church in this case).  The host of the charity event “STARS 4 Baby Reesa” worked with some St Louis and Mizzou sports favorites and an incredible team of volunteers from Sunrise UMC to create a miracle.  While the quick takeaway from the charity [...]

If you follow my Twitter feed or have an unnatural fascination with my references to 8 lb burritos, you have probably seen references made to some of my favorite bloggers in the Cardinal National blogosphere.  I frequently refer to Bob Netherton (@CardinalTales) on Twitter as the “Bob Gibson of Bloggers” due to his engaging way [...]

With MLB nearing the end of the midsummer night’s bad dream, some members of Cardinal Nation have turned their respective attentions to ways to improve an already solid team enough to push it past the Reds and Pirates in the NL Central.  Some seem ready to consider just about anything, some want a big time [...]
