cardinals

Cardinals attempt to rock the vote by swaying voters using rather old-fashioned tactics that involve sensory overload of some kind.  In this case, they have started the “Vote to send Cardinals to All-Star Game” ad campaign with a questionable list of choices.  According to this screenshot taken from the Cardinals.com website just a few days [...]

Evidence that many members of Cardinal Nation have already jumped the proverbial shark abounds, and the perception seems greatly deviated from the reality.  The Cardinals remain a division leading team, yet they have recently played like a farm club.  On paper, they still look like a potential playoff team.  On the field, they appear to [...]

You visit this site (presumably) to read about the Cardinals, in large part because you are (presumably) a Cardinals fan. Maybe you’re just a baseball fan and happen to live in St. Louis.  That’s ok too, stick with me here. When the Sports Vacation Guys e-mailed asking if we’d like to help give away two [...]

  Indeed, the limitations of the 25 man roster impose certain constraints on the Cardinals that some teams do not have.  The Cardinals legitimately have greater than 25 players who have to varying degrees earned spots on the roster and potentially deserve some playing time.  For many teams, that “problem” represents a best-case scenario.  For [...]

Baseball games are meant to be a lot of fun, but there are many obstacles and challenges that can add stress to your day at the ballpark.  Every misstep or wrong turn has the potential to consume valuable time and make you the source of foul language that would make a sailor blush.  Don’t be [...]

That’s right.  The magic number for the Cardinals to eliminate the Chicago Cubs from the NL Central division title is 135.  That would still leave the Cubs with a shot at the wild card, but it really is never too early to start taking shots at how bad the Cubs are.  Why?  Why not?  Also, [...]

I make no claim regarding my ability to hit a Justin Verlander or a Jason Motte fastball, and I have no illusions about my ability to manage a major league game.  I have a face for radio and a voice for the shower.  I am simply a fan who writes about baseball so that our [...]

It’s not personal.  It’s business.  The St. Louis Cardinals do not need Roy Oswalt right now.  They may need him sometime down the road, but they really don’t need him right at this very moment.  Some people would have you believe otherwise, but it’s always easier when spending other people’s money.  Consider the pitchers that [...]

In player payroll alone, the 2011 St. Louis Cardinals cost somewhere around $126.3M, and you may be hard-pressed to find anybody who thinks that the Cardinals failed to get a decent return on that investment.  The publicity that accompanies a playoff run alone is probably worth millions in advertising and marketing dollars.  Win it all [...]

There are many tall tales and myths circulating about Matt Adams.  I thought it necessary to set the record straight.  I’ll begin by debunking some of the more ridiculous notions. Adams never played quarterback for the Colts under the alias “Peyton Manning”.  He may or may not have done so as “Curtis Painter” or “Jim [...]
