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 love it when post titles double as a band name.  And vice versa. As long ago as Spring Training 2010, Mitchell Boggs was searching for a consistent, repetitive delivery that would bring him success in his newfound role as a relief pitcher. From that post at Matthew Leach’s blog, Dave Duncan had this to [...]

Get used to that combination, in that order, Cards fans. Something tells me we may see plenty of wins from it this season. Remember when Mitchell Boggs said at the Winter Warm-Up that he “could compete with anybody” and expected himself to be “really good”? I do, and I think Mike Matheny was listening too. [...]

Another series win (one game against the Marlins counts, right?) for the home team, and in-division against another predicted challenger for the division title, and the Cards leave Milwaukee at 3-1 heading to Cincy. There was a lot to like this weekend, and then a tip-of-your-cap day on Saturday when Zack Greinke silenced the Cardinal [...]

We asked: It seems with every [...]

“It’s the Cardinals, sir, they’ve gone from suck to blow.” -Spaceballs “My Cardinals always work some of the time.” -Will Smith in Bad Boys #ReplaceAWordInAMovieLineWithCardinals If you are a Twitter user, then you are probably familiar with silly hashtags like the one I used.  It’s a great excuse for normally rationale people to express themselves [...]

Let’s just dispense with the pleasantries and list them all here, shall we? This way, Cards fans have a repository to come back to game after game, without having to continue to come up with new reasons for a lost season. In no particular order: Moths Ryan Franklin Takashi Saito Rob Drake Tony Rasmus Dan [...]

Hellooo, TLR!  Is this thing even on?  Has anybody besides me noticed that Matt Holliday hasn’t exactly been pounding the ball since going 3/5 on May 13th against the Reds?  Since that day, he’s gone 4/31 and dropped his batting average from .398 to .344.  A hitting slump alone isn’t cause for concern, especially when [...]
