Cardinals one game away from World Series

The Cardinals are one game away from heading to the World Series after last night's 4-2 triumph over the Dodgers. However, the team needs to stay focused and continue to do what they're doing in order to succeed in their ultimate goal, lest we forget what happened last year. As you recall, the Cardinals were in the same position last year, up 3-1 against the San Francisco...

Carlos Beltran would go to Yankees

Carlos Beltran could be headed back to The Big Apple. Citing multiple sources, the New York Daily News' Mark Feinsand reports that Beltran "would strongly consider" an offer that would bring him back to New York -- but this time to play outfield for the Yankees. Beltran, who will turn 37 in April, is reportedly intrigued by the possibility of playing in the cozy right...

2012 NLCS collapse won't be weighing on Wacha's mind

ST. LOUIS -- Nobody knows how much the Cardinals will be thinking about their collapse in last year's NL Championship Series on Friday night. For the 17 returning players who watched their season sink in San Francisco, the memory of being outscored 20-1 and blowing a 3-games-to-1 lead must be difficult to erase. But you can be certain at least one Cardinal will not be weighed...

St. Louis Cardinals on brink of creating special memories for new fans

The St. Louis Cardinals have had an incredible amount of success the past three seasons, including a World Series championship and two trips to the National League Championship Series, but they still have a chance to create new, lifelong memories for another set of Cardinals fans with a win Friday or Saturday. The World Series is the pinnacle of the sport. It is every team’s goal...

Who better to pitch today than Joe Kelly? Nobody

LOS ANGELES -- Three quick observations on the Cardinals and the National League Championship Series. THE IDEAL STARTER Joe Kelly has pitched only twice at Dodger Stadium, the Cardinals lost both games and he didn't pitch well. But he's still the ideal guy to start Game 5 of the NL Championship Series this afternoon at Dodger Stadium. Of course, you could say the same...

Adam Wainwright: Adrian Gonzalez heckled me at third base

Adam Wainwright cleared up a misunderstanding regarding his issues with Adrian Gonzalez’s “Mickey Mouse” behavior during Game 3 on Monday night, explaining that he wasn’t annoyed with a celebration, but with Gonzalez heckling him. LBS and many other outlets incorrectly believed Wainwright was annoyed with the way Gonzalez celebrated his RBI double to put the […]

Preview: Kershaw, Wacha meet again in Game 6 of NLCS

ST. LOUIS -- For four straight starts, Michael Wacha has been all but untouchable and appeared totally oblivious to the stakes. The St. Louis Cardinals need one more just like that from the pressure-proof rookie to get to the World Series for the second time in three years. Wacha outpitched NL Cy Young front-runner Clayton Kershaw in Game 2 and the Cardinals won 1-0 on an unearned...

Cardinals fail to lure L.A. cop into their breakdance party (GIF)

The St. Louis Cardinals failed to coerce a Los Angeles police officer into their "breakdance party" at the edge of the dugout during Wednesday's Game 5 of the NLDS. The Cardinals also failed to win the game and close out the series. Maybe the Cardinals should focus less on the dancing and more about their play on the field. H/T Extra Mustard. Visit us at...

More Than Devil Magic Pushing the Cardinals to Victory

In the brief interludes between arguing whether the Cardinals do indeed have “the best fans in baseball” and if they should or should not be offended by Yasiel Puig, a popular discussion topic on social media has centered on St. Louis’ so-called “Cardinals Devil Magic,” i.e., the sense that everything always seems to go the Cardinals’ way in October. Setting aside the...

Matheny makes all the right moves in Game 4 of NLCS

LOS ANGELES -- If the Cardinals were passing out postseason game balls ala 2006, they would have had no shortage of worthy candidates from their 4-2 victory over the Dodgers Tuesday night. There was Matt Holliday with a monster two-run homer that all parties agreed traveled much farther than the estimated 426 feet. There was Shane Robinson and his pinch-hit homer that provided an...

Cardinals Win Game Four of the NLCS; One Win Away From World Series

It's only been a couple of seasons since the St. Louis Cardinals were in the World Series (2011) and after Tuesday night the Red Birds moved within a game of returning. So yes, they do have a pretty good reason to be happy and goof off a little. A three-run third inning put the  Cardinals ahead early in Game Four of the NLCS Tuesday night and it turned...

Should the Mets bring back Beltran

There has been a growing conversation among fans and reporters about the possibility of the Mets bringing back OF Carlos Beltran, although the organizations interest is unknown. Does it make sense for the Mets to bring back one-time fan favorite Carlos Beltran? I sit on the fence with this one, but opt to say yes under certain conditions. First off, there is a group inside the Mets...

Dodgers Have Cardinals Right Where They Want Them in Games 6, 7

It’s been mentioned a few times on the TBS telecast of the NLCS between the Dodgers and Cardinals that many St. Louis players who were around remember last season’s playoffs more than winning the World Series in 2011. Why? The Cards had a good shot to repeat and were up 3-1 in the 2012 NLCS against San Francisco. Two of St. Louis’ best pitchers, Chris Carpenter and Kyle...

‘The Chase Is On’ Is The St. Louis Cardinals Playoff Song That No One Asked For

As a St. Louis Cardinals fan, I don’t even have a decent response for this. I mean, I love fan-made sports team anthems in an ironic way, because 99% of songs and/or videos recorded for the sake of “supportin’ the team, bro” are typically unintentionally hilarious, but this one? I have no clue what was supposed to come of “The Chase is On.” Maybe this was just intended...

NLCS GM4: 'He Did What?'

Shane Robinson did what?  Seriously, though. What happened? He did not hit a home run. I looked up Dodger Stadium and it's the 15th hardest park factor in 2013. Next thing you're going to tell me Cal Ripken's mom got held up by gunpoint again.  WHAT? What is going on? The Cardinals **** the bed in GM3 of the NLCS last night. But tonight? Behind the cool...
