Matt Holliday To DL For Cardinals

nurse

Matt Holliday’s strained hamstring now has landed him on the 15-day disabled list. Jenifer Langsoch of Cardinals.com reports that Holliday “did admit on Friday that his hamstring still felt tight when he tested it running. Such limitations were forcing the Cardinals to play one short on the five-man bench.” Holliday injured him hamstring running in […]

By The Numbers: Let The NLC Battle Begin

Schedule

The Cardinals were the best team in baseball before the All-Star break (even if the powers that be at Baseball Tonight refuse to acknowledge it in their first half review! … but I’m not bitter). That said, the quickest way to lose their winning edge is to dwell in the past. So, today, we move […]

The Tale Of Mariano Rivera And The Ball Thrown Out Of Busch Stadium

Sat_Pitchers-8-1024x768

Once upon a time, the New York Yankees played against the St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium II. Yes, it does seem like an interleague fairy tale since it was so many years ago — June 10-12, 2005, to be exact. And, during the course of that three-game series, something seemed to intrigue Yankees closer […]

Cardinals First-Half MVP? Cast Your Vote

Wainwright-1

You make the call — just click below to vote. We couldn’t decide among ourselves who is the most valuable St. Louis Cardinal for the first half. Because while it seemed obvious at first  — Yadier Molina, of course — we thought of Matt Carpenter. And then thought more: where would the Cards be without […]

Yadi! Allen! Koz? Yes! And Cards Win!

collage-ASB

It appears Yadier Molina likes being 31. He also likes breaking out of a hitting slump in a big way, as he went 4 for 6 with 4 RBI, 3 runs scored and a home run on the day after his birthday. Oh, and there’s no doubt he likes winning games. Pretty sure he doesn’t […]

You Say It’s Yadi’s Birthday …

Yadi-1

Happy 31st birthday, Yadier Benjamin Molina! Yes, our favorite BAMF who is the Cardinals team leader, MVP candidate, leading All-Star vote getter and the National League’s leading hitter (even while in a slump) was born on July 13, 1982, and has been stealing our hearts just like he’s been stopping those foolish enough to try […]

Cardinals Lose to Cubs, Now With More Sharks

Wrigley_Sharks

So the Cardinals and Cubs opened up a four-game set at Wrigley Thursday night. Honestly, it didn’t go well for your birds. They kind of lost the game, ya know. The score was like 3-0. Truth be told, I didn’t watch as much of the game as I would have liked. Mainly, I spent a […]

The Matts Lead Cardinals To 5-0 Home Stand

July 10

Wednesday was a good night for Matt — all three on the St. Louis Cardinals roster. It also was a good night for the Cardinals overall, as they finished a perfect 5-0 home stand with sweeps of the Miami Marlins and Houston Astros. And you know things are going better for a team when they […]

Bud Norris? Nah. It’s Adam Wainwright, Astros Killer

Runs

Jenifer Langosch said it before the game: Adam Wainwright against the Astros just doesn’t seem fair. Of course, many would have argued that Astros starter Bud Norris against the Cardinals was, for some inexplicable reason, also not fair. The pitcher that had earned a questionable frustrating reputation of success against the former division foe didn’t […]

Cardinals, Broadcast Partners Join Forces To Benefit Cardinals Care

saint_louis_cardinals_logo

The St. Louis Cardinals have teamed up with FOX Sports Midwest and the Cardinals Radio Network to raise money for Cardinals Care by auctioning off exclusive, one-of-a-kind experiences for Cardinals fans during tonight’s broadcasts when the Cardinals take on their former NL Central rival, the Houston Astros. The television broadcast auction begins as soon as […]

Sunday A Fun Day For The Cardinals

Beltran - july 7

Yesterday was a pretty good day for the St. Louis Cardinals, wouldn’t you say? Let us count the ways … 1.Sweep! Obviously, the 3-2 victory over the Miami Marlins was pretty sweet. It was the Cards first sweep at home this season, plus their first time with three consecutive W’s since winning four in a […]

At Last! Cardinals Finally Walk Off A Winner

walk-off error

Any win is great — especially for the St. Louis Cardinals lately. And the 5-4 walk-off win over the Miami Marlins definitely qualified as a great one. To begin with, it was the first walk-off of 2013 for the Cards … and it took until game number 86 to do it. (Perhaps not surprisingly, they […]

Cardinals Lead National League With 5 All-Stars

ASG

Nearly all your All-Star Game online voting paid off, thankfully. Yadier Molina received the most votes in the National League as he was elected the starting catching and Carlos Beltran received the most votes of any outfielder. And, though he didn’t quite catch that loudmouth from Cincinnati in the fan vote, Matt Carpenter was chosen […]

Disappointed? Yes – But Here’s Joe Kelly To Help

Joe-Shelby

Painful loss last night, obviously, one that’s still hugely disappointing this morning. We can debate back and forth endlessly about what should have been done in the bottom of the ninth — but, unfortunately, it won’t change the outcome. So, I won’t even try. Instead, I’ll try to improve your mood. And that’s courtesy of […]
