Chris Carpenter

Been collecting links (and a few other goodies) all day in the interest of sharing with you loyal three readers… Patrick Rishe writes at Forbes.com that he believes the Cards’ deep run into the playoffs and World Series appearance further cements the chances that Albert Pujols will re-sign with St. Louis. At the Mariners blog [...]

Evidently being the favorite just doesn’t suit the 2011 edition, so it is back to square one as far as these Cardinals are concerned. And as much as it pains me to write this, I wouldn’t want it any other way. St. Louis gets to go out with a bang, fitting since the opposite can [...]

Late last night/early this morning, we posted our 1982/2011 Cards and Brewers roster mash-ups. The idea behind this undertaking is to find the best players, hitters, and pitchers from the 1982 and 2011 Milwaukee Brewers teams and make a roster with them – same for the 1982 and 2011 Cardinals. Now it’s time for the [...]

In an effort to keep things positive, to look forward to games still winnable, and – well – to ultimately put the bad taste of last night’s NLCS Game One loss out of our collective mouths, let’s look at some things we can reasonably expect to see tonight and beyond: Tony La Russa will not hesitate [...]

Didn’t see that finish coming either, huh? And after this summer, any further need to gamble, skydive, or even ride coasters is forever muted. The Cardinals are winners in my book no matter what happens in October, but a couple of playoff gems by Chris Carpenter would help keep the playoff beard from going all [...]

Not not those talking heads.  These Talking Heads. “You may ask yourself, ‘Well, how did I get here?’” -David Byrne How DID we get here?  If someone had gone into hibernation at the end of April and woke up in early September, without the convenience of having a standings sheet in front of them, the [...]

If you are just waking up on Thursday morning and this is the place you come first for your Cardinals news, first, I’m sorry.  Second, THE CARDINALS WON!  Third, SO DID THE PHILLIES! Yes, our beloved Redbirds are on to the 2011 tournament, and without having to play that pesky 163rd game, even! Chris Carpenter [...]

3 and Out

“You can’t ask for anything more than to be playing meaningful games in September with a chance to make the playoffs.” ~Practically every player/coach/manager on a team about to miss the playoffs. Boom goes the dynamite, people.  I sincerely hope that the folks in the video department for the Cardinals took time to piece together [...]

So much for the storybook ending, but St. Louis can write a new finish to 2011 with the help of their long-time rivals. The Cubs travel to Busch for three of the most important games in recent memory with only one club feeling the heat. Chicago most recently dispatched the Brewers 2 out of 3 [...]

That’s Plausidiculous

Admit it.  Y’all have already huddled around water coolers, in break rooms, or gathered for drinks after work to discuss the state of the Cardinals more than once recently and discussed bringing back Berkman, Albert’s contract, and/or the state of TLR’s mental health.  That’s all well and good, but how many of you did your homework [...]
