The St. Louis Cardinals series with the Los Angeles Dodger this weekend in Southern California has huge playoff and wild card implications. On Thursday night, the Cardinals made a nice statement with their 2-1 victory to push their lead over the Dodgers to two full games. The Cardinals win was not the only statement made at Dodger Stadium on Thursday night. A certain fan in the stands tried to make a statement as well. Former MLB star Jose Canseco was sitting in a field box seat wearing a t-shirt that said "Sorry For Everything Mark." You can see a picture of Canseco wearing the shirt at Dodger Stadium here. Of course Mark is Mark McGwire, the St. Louis Cardinals hitting coach whom Canseco outed in his inital book Juiced, which actually uncovered a lot of baseball's steroid scandal. Jose Canseco is certainly an odd and strange man. Likely his own steriod use has impaired his judgement and social skills because apologizing to McGwire via a t-shirt is sim...

Cardinals may soon have first-ever five 20-home run hitters

With each home run, St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina extends his second consecutive career-best season. The 29-year-old cranked number 19 on Friday night in Los Angeles. In doing so, Molina joined teammate David Freese on the very edge of joining the 20-home run club for the first time in their respective major league careers. That kind of power balance has is unprecedented...

Is Carlos Beltran starting to break out of his slump?

Much has been made about how bad Carlos Beltran has been the second half of the year for the St. Louis Cardinals. Since the All-Star break, where Beltran participated in the Home Run Derby and started for the National League in right field, Beltran has been mediocre at best.  Beltran is hitting just .219 with nine home runs and only 22 RBI's. Beltran has clearly struggled...

N.L. Wild Card Race: Can Chris Carpenter Save Struggling St. Louis Cardinals From Collapse?

The St. Louis Cardinals know what it is like to make a late season run to catch the National League wild card leader during the final month of the regular season. They did it last year on their way to catching the Atlanta Braves in the final game of the year. That propelled them on to winning the 2011 World Series. But in 2012, could the Cardinals be the team who blows...

He makes up with the lack of strength in his legs with the cannon he has for an arm.

Cardinals Avoid Grim Reaper and The Friday Links

Last night, around 11:15 Allen Craig hit a double, nearly getting thrown out at second base to lead off the 6th inning. Moving on contact, Craig was called out when Yadier Molina's single to the shortstop hit him. I paused the TV. Took a picture of the exact moment the ball struck Craig and was fully prepared to post that picture alone after the loss with the headline "...

Cardinals extend NL wild-card lead

Although Allen Craig's bouncing single didn't look like much, it was just what Lance Lynn and the St. Louis Cardinals needed to get back on track in the wild-card race. Craig drove in Shane Robinson with the go-ahead run in the seventh inning, and the Cardinals extended their NL wild-card lead over Los Angeles to two games with a 2-1 victory over the struggling Dodgers on...
