A couple weeks ago I had the fortune of attending a wonderful event at Busch Stadium thanks to UCB and the Cardinals organization. Even though the Cardinals did not win that day, this was one of the best times I’ve ever had at a baseball game. This is because the assembled bloggers got to have a Q&A with Cardinals President Bill Dewitt III and GM John Mozeliak. I found out about the event by getting an email and RSVP’ing for what was a very generous event. I got to bring a guest (I brought along a baseball coach friend who had a really great time), free tickets to the game, free food and drink, a Carlos Beltran bobblehead, and more.

The Shelby Miller lists

As pretty much the entire baseball world knows by now, on Friday night, St. Louis Cardinals rookie right-hander Shelby Miller allowed a leadoff broken bat single before retiring the next 27 Colorado Rockies in order.

St. Louis Cardinals: Chris Carpenters throws 70 pitch bullpen session and reveals curly hair

Within the last week, St. Louis Cardinals 38-year old disabled ace Chris Carpenter revealed to Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that he hoped to make one last rehab attempt and return to the Cardinals as a possible member of the beleaguered bullpen.

St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Shelby Miller pitches virtual Perfect Game

Shelby Miller completes the game with 1 hitCredit: Jeff Roberson/AP Twenty-seven up, twenty-seven down. The definition of a perfect game.  Unfortunately, if a leadoff single preceded the 27 outs, the record books won’t record it. Shelby Miller of the St. Louis Cardinals gave up a clean single to Eric Young Jr. (nobody in the crowd even batted an eyelash at the time), then did...

Wainwright leads Cardinals against Colorado at Busch

(AP) -- St. Louis Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright was off his game the last time out. The right-hander might not need his best stuff given how the Colorado Rockies are struggling at the plate.

Shelby Miller: Ace On The Rise

A leadoff single in the top of the first inning to Eric Young Jr. would be the only base runner...

ST. LOUIS (AP) Adam Wainwright carried a no-hitter into the eighth inning and was one out from the St. Louis Cardinals' second straight one-hitter over the suddenly punchless Colorado Rockies in a 3-0 victory Saturday. The Rockies had been hitless in 49 consecutive at-bats before Nolan Arenado lined a clean hit to center field with one out in the eighth. Eric Young led off Friday...

The St. Louis Cardinals are returning to the friendly setting at Busch Stadium after finishing an impressive 5-1 road trip. After sweeping the Milwaukee Brewers in dominant fashion in a 4-game set  and splitting with the Chicago Cubs, the Cardinals will look to carry the momentum into a series with a less familiar opponent.  The Cardinals enter the series with the best record...

In Bizarro World, where the Cardinals are always good

It was late when I conjured up this post, but to put things into context, this is the episode of Star Trek where Kirk and friends get sucked into a mirror universe and evil Spock has a goatee.  The picture is particularly funny because George Takei, who is really funny and whom I love because of his internet presence, is so incredibly gay that his flirting with Uhura makes no sense...
