Let Them Play – The 2014 Cardinals Playoff Push Is On!


Once again it’s late September. The weather in St. Louis has started to cool down. Some of those around town are asking when the Rams will be moving to Los Angeles. Others are counting down the three weeks until the St. Louis Blues take the ice. I wonder all of these things but my mind […]

My Take On #cardsplaneproblems


Giving credit where credit is due, United Cardinal Bloggers founder and head honcho Daniel Shoptaw Cardinal70 ‏@C70 game up with the Twitter hashtag #cardsplaneproblems. From there it blew up.

My 2013 All Star Ballot


A couple of years ago when Bud Selig decided to make the All-Star game ‘count’ I thought this might be a cool idea. See baseball’s biggest stars fight for which league will get home field advantage in the World Series. I can say this probably helped the Cardinals win, so I have grown used to […]

That Wacky Wild Card Friday

That Wacky Wild Card Friday


It started with two pitchers each playoff rookie manager trusted.  It ended with some interesting actions by one team’s fans, a player retiring, and one quoting scripture that sounds like he probably won’t be coming back to that team. The commissioner’s office got what they wanted. I heard someone call it a WWE title match […]

I’m Disappointed Cardinals Nation


Let me start off by saying that I was shocked when I heard Albert Pujols signed with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim for 10 years and 254 million dollars.  No trade clause included.  Shocked. Stunned.  I really thought there was no way he would leave St. Louis.  Baseball is a business and if you […]
