Found September 12, 2012 on Cardinals Diaspora:
That just happened, huh? In the midst of final three weeks of the season, the Cardinals started the penultimate road trip of 2012 by getting swept. Against a team 9 games under .500. At least they were, until the Cardinals came to down.Yup. The Fathers whipped off their work belt and went to town on the bare asses of the feckless basballers we call Cardinals. Massively ineffective hitting with runners in scoring position? Check. Continuing inability to get runners home from third with less than 2 outs? Check. Carlos Beltran falling of the face of the ******* earth? CHECK.Pathetic.I mean, what the hell is going on out there? It's like we're watching the Astros. Or maybe a enhanced re-enactment of the Astros if their highlights were on Fox News and all their players were ranking Democrats in the House. Worse, the rudderless Cardinals are now heading into Los Angeles for 4 games, ostensibly fast forwarding to the end of the season and deciding the second Wild Card team over the...

Cardinals searching for answers to poor play

SAN DIEGO Standing in front of his locker following a second straight sloppy loss that dropped the Cardinals to 4-10 in their past 14 games, starter Adam Wainwright did his best to convince those worried about his teammates that they shouldn't be. Despite losing five of their last six games and posting just four wins since August 28, the Cardinals remain one game in front of...

Garcia not guaranteed to start Saturday

SAN DIEGO The Cardinals will decide in the next day or so whether or not to let Jaime Garcia make his next scheduled start Saturday in Los Angeles. Garcia allowed four runs, seven hits and three walks Monday night, continuing an ugly trend of poor performances away from the friendly confines of Busch Stadium. The left-hander has a 2.63 ERA at home this season compared to a 6.19...

Berkman's knee surgery might lead to retirement

Cardinals first baseman Lance Berkman was scheduled to undergo season-ending knee surgery on Tuesday, and it could lead to his retirement, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Tuesday. Berkman had a second MRI in less than two weeks on Monday, at which time it was determined surgery was needed. He needs additional meniscus shaved from a knee that has already undergone three...

Has Adam Wainwright Hit a Wall?

There’s a natural ebb and flow to every pitcher’s season, but it comes in fits and starts instead of the smoother information stream that a position player provides. So, every five days, our brains attempt to fit a narrative over these disparate pieces of information. That’s natural, if not always useful. Take Adam Wainwright for instance. In his last three starts, he’s...

Cardinal talk: KXnO FOX Sports Radio: Road trip ugly

St. Louis Cardinals weekly chat on KXnO FOX Sports Radio 1460 in Des Moines. Late Wednesday afternoon, I joined Ken Miller and Jim Brinson on KXnO FOX Sports Radio 1460 in Des Moines in our regular series to discuss the St. Louis Cardinals, “Cardinal Talk.” This week, we discussed the Cardinals current schedule, including the rough start to the club’s West Coast road trip....

Cardinals 2, Dodgers 1

Allen Craig drove in Shane Robinson with the go-ahead run in the seventh inning, and the St. Louis Cardinals extended their NL wild-card lead over Los Angeles to two games with a 2-1 victory over the struggling Dodgers on Thursday night. Lance Lynn (15-7) pitched six innings of five-hit ball to earn his first win since July 27 for the Cardinals, striking out seven in the All-Star...

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 "...

Game Picks - Wednesday: September 12, 2012

Those stupid Cardinals. Despite great picks like the Astros and Ian Kennedy over Clayton Kershaw, the picks foundered around the .500 mark all day. The Red Sox won as predicted, but the Bay Rays did not. That's how the day went. The stupid St. Louis Cardinals was the swing game between over .500 and below it. They had Adam Wainwright on the mound, their ace. They had the early...

Josh Beckett thrown out at first by right fielder

There are embarrassing plays in baseball that demonstrate either a person is lazy and apathetic, or, perhaps as a free pass, may not be quite so fleet of foot, and then there are embarrassing plays that leave you scratching your head and almost feeling sorry for a guy. Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Josh Beckett being retired at [...]

Carlos Beltran throws Josh Beckett out at first base from right field (Video)

Your browser does not support iframes. Welcome back to the National League, Josh. Those of you who somehow missed all the stuff about pitchers pounding beers and hawking down fried chicken in Boston last year may not know this, but Josh Beckett isn’t exactly a model of fitness. Watching him swing a bat during interleague play when he was with the Red Sox was always entertaining...

A GIF Representation Of My Thoughts On A-Gon’s Backwards K, With Help From Trauma Dog

Yesterday, with the Dodgers down by one run and the tying run on second in the top of the ninth, Adrian Gonzalez struck out … because of course. It unfortunately reminded me of Carlos Beltran‘s infamous at-bat against Adam Wainwright in the NLCS, though obviously nowhere near as dramatic. With the help of who I... Read More »
