NL Wild Card

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 [...]

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 [...]

NLDS St. Louis Cardinals (90-67) versus Los Angeles Dodgers (93-65) NLDS Colorado Rockies (89-68) versus Philadelphia Phillies (91-66) —– Look familiar?  Yeah, me too. Nothing has changed since Tuesday, except these teams won and lost some games respectively. Colorado has effectively clinched the NL Wild Card (Matt Diaz says you’re welcome!), and the Dodgers have [...]

NLDS St. Louis Cardinals (90-66) versus Los Angeles Dodgers (93-64) NLDS Colorado Rockies (88-68) versus Philadelphia Phillies (90-66) —– The Phillies and Dodgers continue to play similar to the Cards, that is, relatively poorly compared to their prior months.  Philly is 4-6 in their last ten, with the Cards and Dodgers both 5-5. Philadelphia would [...]

As if watching the late-August and early-September swoon of the Cardinals hasn’t been bad enough, it appears no one else wants to take the NL Wild Card spot in the playoffs.  The Mets lost to the Cubs tonight, allowing the Cardinals to mathematically remain “in the race” regardless of their outcome versus Arizona tonight (and [...]

I think it’s time to start thinking about shutting Kyle McClellan down (if he’s not unofficially done anyway) for the season, albeit what little is left of it. Kyle had another rough outing on Tuesday night, surrendering three runs in one-third of an inning. Unfortunately, this type of appearance has become all too common in [...]

The Milwaukee Brewers fired Ned Yost today, according to ESPN.com. The Brewers were just swept by the Philadelphia Phillies, dropping them into a tie with the Phillies in the NL Wild Card race.  The Brewers have lost 11 of their last 14 games, allowing many teams to climb back into the playoff hunt. This makes [...]

Beat the Pirates

That’s really all the Cardinals had to do this season, with any sort of regularity, to be staring a playoff berth right in the eyes. Sure, 5-10 against the Brewers hasn’t done them any favors either (and 2-4 against the Royals, and 3-4 against the Giants). They’ve had their other opportunities, they’ve had many chances [...]
