Cardinal Nation

As one of the strangest off-seasons in memory comes to an end, a reminder of just how great baseball can be presented itself at just the right time. The 2012 campaign will feature a very different look in St. Louis, and three Cardinal faithful are one step away from catching every inning of it. That [...]

Just about everyone in Cardinal Nation has had plenty of time to become acquainted with the latest flapdoodle involving Skip Schumaker’s latest baseball card from Topps.  It features the now famous Busch Squirrel (aka Rally Squirrel), and it really is an actual card with Skip’s name on it.

Yesterday afternoon’s game obviously requires some revisiting.  Yes, I was hoping not to feel like 2008 all over again until later in the season.  Yes, the Cardinals have already logged two blown saves for the season in just one game.  Yes, we will live to play another day. Fer chris’sakes people, it was only the [...]
