St. Louis Cardinals chat on KXnO FOX Sports Radio 1460 in Des Moines.
Late Tuesday afternoon, I joined Joe Quinn and Jim Brinson on KXnO FOX Sports Radio 1460 in Des Moines in the final 2012 segment of our regular series to discuss the St. Louis Cardinals, “Cardinal Talk.”
This time, we discussed the conclusion of the National League Championship Series and some of the potential storylines for the 2012-2013 off-season that is now upon the club.
Cardinals followers in central Iowa can look forward to catching St. Louis Cardinals radio broadcasts on KXnO as well as my regular segment each week throughout the season, either over the air or via streaming. My appearances are sponsored by WCI Pools and Spas.

AROUND THE WEB
Kyle Lohse pitched terrible in a game that counted for more than any other game he ever pitched in his professional career. Lohse needed this win to give his St. Louis Cardinals a berth into the 2012 World Series. Lohse gave up 5 runs on 6 hits to watch his Cardinals fall to the Giants 9-0 in-game 7. The Cardinals choked, pure and simple it is one of the worst chokes in the...
TO THE RULEBOOK
Hunter Pence broke NLCS Game 7 open with a weird broken bat double, but should he have been ruled out on the play?
The St. Louis Cardinals won't renew the contract of bullpen coach Dyar Miller, the team announced Thursday. The rest of manager Mike Matheny's coaching staff will be offered an opportunity to stay, general manager John Mozeliak said. That includes Mark McGwire, Derek Lilliquist and Jose Oquendo. Mozeliak prefers to fill the bullpen position from within the organization...
For some reason, St. Louis Cardinals fans are known as being the best in the world. I'm not sure how the voting shook out, but if @BestFansStLouis is any indication...there needs to be a re-count.By now, you've seen what the Twitter account is all about, right? Basically, as Deadspin put it, "one brave soul is keeping tabs on the temporary insanity for us and retweeting...
ST. LOUIS (AP) Kyle Lohse got to bed at 5:30 a.m. after the St. Louis Cardinals' flight following a most unpleasant end to the NL championship series against the San Francisco Giants.
Fatigue only added to the aftershock of a spectacular nosedive as players cleaned out their lockers Tuesday at an empty stadium still adorned with bunting. The pitcher's mound and home plate...
The defending World Series champions were one win away from returning to the Fall Classic for a second straight year before suffering three consecutive losses to the San Francisco Giants this week.
And while the pain and disappointment continues to linger, thoughts quickly turn positive when the talk turns towards next season. The Cardinals will likely lose only starter Kyle Lohse...
ST. LOUIS Baseball's higher forces have a wicked sense of humor. How else to explain shortstop Pete Kozma, the St. Louis Cardinals' King Clutch this October, becoming the victim of a funhouse sequence in Game 7 of the National League Championship Series?
Let's rewind to Monday night: In the bottom of the third inning, the San Francisco Giants led 2-0. Bases were loaded...
It was evident the St. Louis Cardinals were headed back to the World Series. After an 8-3 win in Game 4 of the NLCS, admission was all but formally granted. The Redbirds had dominated the Giants across the diamond. The Sports Fan Journal’s Matt Whitener tweeted that the Cardinals were headed back to the Fall [...]The post Sports Superstitions Make Fans Feel Like Part Of The Game...
The offense stopped hitting, the starting pitchers couldn't even make it to the fifth inning and the St. Louis Cardinals kicked the ball around in the field.
Throw in a quirky, broken-bat grounder that inexplicably changed directions at a most inopportune time and it all added up a crushing postseason collapse.
After two postseasons of being a team that refused to be eliminated...
Finally, our long national nightmare is over. The St. Louis Cardinals are no more, and with their elimination comes a feeling of satisfaction I didn’t know was possible from a baseball game.
I’m not exaggerating.
All over the world, people are raised with an irrational, irreversible hatred for certain creeds, religions or ethnicities. Fortunately, my parents raised me in such...
Long-time organizational pitching coach Dyar Miller will not return to the St. Louis Cardinals in 2013. The former MLB pitcher was St. Louis’ bullpen coach in 2012.
Not feeling better about Game 7 today. Not in the least. Hard to turn on SportsCenter this AM and hear them talk about... well, a ****** Monday Night Football game. But STILL. They COULD have talked about Game 7 and that would have been the PITTS.
Listen, before we become fully entrenched in our talking points over the next couple of days, let's talk about...
