Fernando Salas

Shelby Miller: 6.2 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 8 K Adam Wainwright: 8.1 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 9 K Three total innings of relief in two games. This is an opportunity for the much-maligned Cardinals bullpen and their manager to reboot. Reset expectations. Survive and advance [...]

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 [...]

The Cardinals just traded Zach Cox for Edward Mujica which naturally produced a “They did what to whom for how many cows?” response.  Obviously, this was not the megadeal many in Cardinal Nation were looking for, but it certainly has potential to be significantly better than nothing.  For the record, Cox was not exactly tearing [...]

No Sacred Cows Here

Be realistic, and please admit that you have certain players you do not wish to see leave the Cardinals or the farm system.  For whatever your reasons, you have grown emotionally attached to 1 or more, and the thought of them in another team’s uniform amounts to baseball sacrilege.  Well, try setting aside those thoughts [...]

I knew I would see them, just as soon as A.J. Pierzynski deposited a baseball into the stands.  They were coming, as sure as the Cardinals would lose the game, and I couldn’t help but search them out. It was time for the “Mitchell Boggs sucks” tweets. http://twitter.com/stlouis0/status/212733554914885632 This strikes me as odd, since Boggs’ [...]

Tweenie Birds

Admit it.  The “Baby Birds” are no longer babies, if they ever really even were at all.  Maybe these guys seem new like a breath of fresh air, but most of them have been around more than a year or two.  Some of them have been in the organization for several years.  Consider some of [...]

Just watch 1 Lance Lynn start, and you’ll notice that everything works off his four-seam fastball.  That’s the one that he threw 65 times last night for 38 strikes which translates to about a 58.46% strike rate.  Considering the fact that Lynn only threw 91 pitches, you might wonder why the Diamondbacks weren’t looking for [...]

Sure, I imagine most Cardinal fans want the team to win just about every game they watch.  Heck, they may want them to win every single game they watch.  If you expect either to happen, then you are indeed a fool, and a fool and the team’s bandwagon are soon parted.  Games like the one [...]

  World Series Swag Bob Gibson, Bruce Sutter, and Adam Wainwright have always commanded attention while on the pitcher’s mound.  When they all took the mound together for ceremonial pitches, it was like watching different 3 points in space-time meeting for just a moment.  Geeky?  Yes.  Awesome?  Absolutely.  For a fleeting instant, I almost wanted [...]

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 [...]
