St Louis Cardinals

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 [...]

Reality Bites

by on September 2, 2011 · 0 comments

I hate to break the news to everybody else in Cardinal Nation, but the chances of the Cardinals reaching the playoffs increased from just above 1.0% to a whopping 4.3% after a 3 game sweep of the Brewers.  With only 24 games left on their schedule, the Brewers have a magic number of 18 to [...]

Notice the way this shot was framed magnificently against the backdrop of the Busch Stadium crowd at night.  The warning sign for “Interfering With Ball” marks the boundary, and the foul/fair pole with its ghastly school bus yellow color is matched in the background by its twin.  More importantly, check out the guy in front [...]

It’s an odd thing to say about a guy who is 4-0 with a 3.23 ERA, isn’t it?  Then again, this is the first time Kyle McClellan has to bounce back after a rough outing as a starter at the highest level, and it will be very interesting to see how he handles it.  It’s not [...]

This episode is more like what Josh and I are used to.  Start out with a modest goal of chatting about Cardinals baseball for about a half-hour, and wind up closer to an hour-and-a-half. We talked about the bullpen, Wednesday night’s game (we recorded after the last out), and Matt Holliday.  We were also joined [...]
