St. Louis Cardinals
Adam Wainwright had plenty of time to reflect, and insisted everything felt good.
The results said otherwise.
The St. Louis Cardinals had their ace going for a sweep over the Cincinnati Reds, but Wainwright was way out of character in a 10-0 loss on Wednesday night.
The right-hander missed a chance to become the National League's first 16-game winner.
''It's just a really bad night, a perfect storm,'' Wainwright said. ''I felt fine. I mean, what can you say? I pitched terrible and that's why we lost game.''
Wainwright (15-8) said throwing a complete game his previous outing had nothing to do with what happened against the Reds.
''No, no, no,'' the right-hander said. ''I'm a big, strong man. This is what we train for all offseason and all season long, to be ready for games like this.''
Wainwright will get another chance at the Reds next week in Cincinnati.
''Just a tough night, that's ...
BEST OF MAXIM
ST LOUIS -- Adam Wainwright likes to say baseball is a humbling game. Soar too high and this sport will cut you down. Wednesday night was a good example.
Four days after Wainwright raised 111,000 for charity and threw a gem of a complete game against the Atlanta Braves -- a day he said would be remembered as one of his best -- the Cardinals' ace, well, he can tell you
After the trade deadline passes each Major League Baseball season, the most common way for a team to add a spark to their club is through the roster expansion on the first of September. The September call ups expand the big league rosters to 40 players. For a team like the St. Louis Cardinals, who have a lauded minor league system, this expansion of the roster can add a number...
NUMBERS DON'T LIE
Brandon Phillips cussed out a Cincinnati reporter who questioned his move in the team's lineup to the number two spot.
ST. LOUIS -- Kevin Siegrist won't fib.
"Occasionally, the rookie lefty says.
And why wouldn't he? An instant confidence boost is a quick glance at a stat sheet -- or a couple of laptop clicks -- away. His numbers have caught the attention of opposing teams, after all. He might as well study them, too.
"I don't try to look at them too much,"...
You'd think with a name like "Busch Stadium" or the world's largest brewery right up the street that the Cardinals would have one of the most affordable cups of beer in baseball, right?
According to extensive beer research from Team Marketing Report, the Cardinals trail only the Boston Red Sox as the highest cost per ounce of beer.
What's better than watching a Reds game at Great American Ball Park?
Watching a Reds game at Great American Ball Park while enjoying a hot dog that you only paid one dollar for. That's what.

The Baby Birds had a successful 6-2 night on Tuesday as Memphis, Palm Beach (2), State College, Johnson City, and the GCL Cards all won. Springfield and Peoria were on the losing end.
Here are quick game summaries followed by the official box score of each game.
Memphis beat New Orleans 8-2 on Tuesday. Jamie Romak had a big day for the Redbirds collecting 4 hits, including his...
Joey Votto is aware of the criticism of his low RBI total and aware of the theory that in order to better serve the Cincinnati Reds he should take a few less walks and a few more risks maybe expand the strike zone a little bit in an effort to drive in more runners. Votto is aware of the criticism and he has no plans to appease the critics.
As Votto sees it his job performance is...
Brandon Phillips is apparently quite sensitive about his on-base percentage and would prefer reporters don't tweet about it.
Before Wednesday's game versus the St. Louis Cardinals, the Cincinnati Reds second baseman barged into the media's interview with manager Dusty Baker to berate Cincinnati Enquirer beat writer C. Trent Rosecrans. Phillips didn't like that...
Brian Walton explains his thinking behind his prediction of up to ten additions to the St. Louis Cardinals roster for the final month of the season.
((HT: CBS Sports/101Sports))
Matt Snyder lets us know that Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips is a little mad at Cincinnati Enquirer beat writer C. Trent Rosecrans. Phillips got moved from clean-up to second in the line up and Rosecrans thought Tweeting the ten point difference in on base percentage was a good idea...
Phillips didn't think so...
He told him so before...
The MLB season is long.
I am not shocked that beat writers and players get sick of seeing each other. Brandon Phillips and Cincinnati Enquirer writer C. Trent Rosecrans don’t get along.
Mainly because Rosecrans is critical of Phillips and Phillips is being a bit emotional about it.

Dusty Baker is quite amused.
The Cincinnati Reds are knee deep into a pennant race, trailing the division leader St. Louis Cardinals by 3.5 games as we approach September. Manager Dusty Baker decided to make a lineup change, and move Brandon Phillips to the two-hole, and it was met with some skepticism by Cincinnati Enquirer’s C. Trent Rosecans, criticizing Phillips’ OBP:
Reds go from a hitter with a...

Phillips: “Hey Dusty, the fat ************ on the end is worried about my on-base percentage. Why don’t you tell him to have me bat eighth with my on-base percentage.”
