Can the Cardinals be stopped in the Central Division?

It’s funny. Every time St. Louis Cardinals fans seem to think the Redbirds are slowing down or starting to finally tail off and self destruct, they fire off a short winning streak where they restore order to the well breed machine. After dropping two disgusting games to the lowly San Diego Padres out west, the Birds have fired off four wins in a row, outscoring the opponent 27...

Cardinals roll to 80 wins and 35 games over .500

  Jeff Curry / USA Today Sports   On August 25th in 2011, the Cardinals were 10.5 games back of the NL Wild Card. Then of course, they went on a remarkable and historical run in dramatic fashion to achieve their 11th World Series Championship in franchise history. Since then, St. Louis has been the postseason in three consecutive years; reaching the NLCS in 2012, another World...

Have The Cardinals Finally Taken Every Injury They Can Afford To?

While success has been the constant for the 2015 St. Louis Cardinals, so has been the ever-present element of doing it in spite of a crucial injury. Looking at the team’s Opening Day roster in comparison to the everyday lineup it trots out currently, rational thought would say there should be no way that this team has baseball’s best record and a six game lead in their division...

Injuries continue to pile up for St. Louis Cardinals

Yet another chapter has been written in the injury-riddled saga that has plagued the 2015 St. Louis Cardinals. Outfielder and legitimate NL Rookie of the Year contender Randal Grichuk landed on the disabled list Monday with an elbow strain that he sustained during Sunday’s game. Since the All-Star Break, Grichuk has been red hot, knocking 14 extra-base hits, including 8 HRs. His...

Grichuk lands on DL, outfield messy but controlled

 Another week, another player’s name going from the active roster to the dreaded disabled list. Welcome to St. Louis Cardinals fandom. The admission will cost your sanity. While the injuries the Cardinals have been handed haven’t made the negative impact that they’re capable of making, it’s beyond-frustrating watching players drop like they are flies.  Outfielder Randal...

I have, on occasion, differed with other Cards fans on things ( Jon Jay , Jaime Garcia , my fascination with Ty Kelly ) and that’s one of the things about being a fan that’s we can all have our own opinions. One of the things I agree with everyone else on though: Yadier Molina is a Cardinals legend. (He’s a hall of [...]

Cardinals: Do we expect too much from Randal Grichuk?

With Trevor Rosenthal currently dominating, and Jon Jay back on the DL, it appears Randal Grichuk has ascended to the “most polarizing Cardinal player” throne. While some see potential and preach patience, others point to long hitting slumps and poor minor league stats. On social media, you’ll find everything from, “play him every day”, to “trade him”, to “send him...

St. Louis Cardinals: What we learned in June

The St. Louis Cardinals (51-27) finished the month of June much the same way they started, owning the best record in Major League Baseball. However, a number of issues cropped up along the way, and will be prominent points of emphasis as the 2015 campaign approaches its halfway point. Whatever these issues will be for the Cardinals, it is important that they handle them quickly...

Cardinals: Tommy Pham gets a shot

It finally happened. The St. Louis Cardinals recalled outfielder Tommy Pham from Triple-A Memphis ahead of Friday’s game against the San Diego Padres, and I couldn’t be happier for the guy. Pham has been on fire since his return from the quadriceps strain that kept him out earlier in the season. The 27-year old has hit .338 with 5 homers and 21 RBI for the Memphis Redbirds, including...
