It’s Just A Game

A week ago, the Cardinals were eliminated from postseason play. Their season came to an end on a long game winning home run off the bat of Travis Ishikawa that was delivered by Michael Wacha. The lights didn’t dim. They were shut off for the winter. When it happened, I felt anger, resentment and foolish [...]

St. Louis Cardinals should keep Michael Wacha in dugout for playoffs

As they’ve tried to survive a full-on attack by the Pittsburgh Pirates to take away their lead in the National League Central Division, the St. Louis Cardinals have spent a significant portion of their time trying to get starting pitcher Michael Wacha back to his dominant form after two-and-a-half months on the disabled list. And it simply isn’t working. Wacha went five innings...

Michael Wacha Faces Interesting End to 2014

The St. Louis Cardinals entered the 2014 season with Adam Wainwright and Michael Wacha poised to lead the rotation forward.  Wainwright, the established veteran, was ready to resume the role of staff ace, a role he had been groomed for over his career.  Wacha looked to build on his success in the 2013 postseason and prove that he would be the future ace of the team.

Michael Wacha Is Now A Model

Michael Wacha is now a model, apparently. (Insert joke about having more free time since he’s on DL, etc., etc., etc.) In this Month’s issue of GQ Magazine (the one with Emily Ratajkowski on the cover – yes, the same girl that was in Robin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines Video’), we find a special advertising section (that’s labeled as such) meant to look like content (hence...
