BEST OF MAXIM
The St. Louis Cardinals will partake in the glorious, heart-pounding, frustrating-yet-exhilarating experience that is Game 5 of the National League Division Series for the third year in a row. They won both of those two previous games, but one player in particular most certainly hopes the game is more similar to 2011 than 2012 — Adam Wainwright.
The Cardinals 2011 ace, Chris Carpenter...
ST. LOUIS -- When the best start of his career was complete, as his teammates rushed around to celebrate yet another October moment, Cardinals right-hander Adam Wainwright wrapped up Yadier Molina in an embrace that neither is likely to forget.
"It was hard to contain myself," Wainwright said after his complete-game gem. "I was teared up big-time. I had a death grip...
ST. LOUIS -- Only seven players who will suit up for the Cardinals in the NLCS made the postseason roster when the club won the World Series in 2011.
Those who have earned their rings often talk about how they want to win a championship for all those who haven't. But there is one player they mention far more than any other. That would be veteran right fielder Carlos Beltran...
St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Allen Craig missed most of September and all of the NLDS due to a sprained left foot. He will also miss the National League Championship Series vs. the Los Angeles Dodgers. MLB.com’s Chad Thornburg reports that the Cardinals will use the exact same roster as they did to defeat the Pittsburgh Pirates in the NLDS, meaning Craig is not included...
ST. LOUIS -- Carlos Beltran capped his latest scintillating postseason performance with an RBI single in the 13th inning early Saturday that lifted the St. Louis Cardinals over the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-2 in the NL championship series opener.
Beltran hit a tying, two-run double in the third inning, then threw out a runner at the plate from right field in the 10th to keep it even...
Perhaps in time for the World Series (should the St. Louis Cardinals defeat the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NLCS), first baseman Allen Craig has received the “go ahead” from foot and ankle specialist Dr. Robert Anderson to increase baseball activities reports MLB.com’s Jenifer Langosch. Craig saw Dr. Anderson on Thursday, and results of the exam showed that Craig has healed...
If you are not a fan of the St. Louis Cardinals it had to be kind of hard not to want the Pittsburgh Pirates to win their division series with the Cardinals. Here you have a franchise that has defined what a cellar dweller is for the last two decades--and now they are awesome.
While they gave the post season veterans a run for their money it was just not in the cards for...
The St Louis Cardinals beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-1 in Game 5 of their NLDS matchup to win the series 3-2 and advance to the NLCS to take on the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The inspirational run of the Pirates came to a close on Wednesday night in St Louis. Adam Wainwright was magnificent for the Cardinals in their 6-1 victory, allowing one run on eight hits in a complete game victory...
ST. LOUIS -- The Los Angeles Dodgers are on the way to becoming the best team money can buy. The Cardinals have built a model franchise through the draft as well as the free-agent market.
But as different as their roads have been, they have reached the same destination: the National League Championship Series. And they arrive about as evenly matched on paper as two teams can be...
Game 1 of the NLCS begins Friday. The Cardinals and The Dodgers are set to square off. Yet around the internet today, people seem to be favoring The Dodgers in this series. Maybe it is the way they disposed of The Braves, a very strong team. Maybe it’s the hype around Puig and Ramirez. Maybe it’s the extra rest from playing less games. At best this is an even series. And here...
ST. LOUIS -- Matt Carpenter isn't the only leadoff hitter struggling in the Pirates-Cardinals National League Division Series.
Like Carpenter, Pirates left fielder Starling Marte s 1-for-15, and hasn't been on base in the past two games. Marte, who hit .280.343.441 in the regular season, homered and walked in Game 2 but is 0-for-12 in the other three games.
Adam Wainwright. @ 7:07 tonight.
In the balance will hang a trip to the NLCS to face the Los Angeles Dodgers. That's the macro.
Anytime 50 paid professionals get together knowing half of them will have to start all over on their professional goals, memorable things can, and often do, happen.
The micro, though, may be just as compelling.
I can't remember...
St. Louis Cardinals players and fans celebrated the team's victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Fans cheered and high-fived; Players took champagne showers.
Pirates at Cardinals–Series Tied 2-2
8:00 PM–Busch Stadium, St Louis
For the second time in just over a week, the season comes down to one game. (That Wild Card game feels like it was a while ago now, right?) The Bucs spoiled us in that one by taking an early lead and not looking back — after the second inning, their win probablity never dipped below...
