That Was Fun

X gon give it to you: This is fun… — Xavier Scruggs (@Xavier_Scruggs) June 29, 2015 Couldn’t have said it better, Mr. Scruggs. This is, that was, indeed, fun. I’d even be willing to escalate that to ‘very fun’ or ‘real fun’ if you’re so inclined. What was the most fun? Jason Heyward basically ran a mile and a half to catch this fly ball. #Cardinals pic.twitter...

Cardinals: Best record and division king

How sweet it is to be a St. Louis Cardinals fan? The Birds are 50-24, reaching the 50 win mark the fastest since the Chicago White Sox did in 2005, where they went on to win the World Series over the Houston Astros. The Cards are also 28-7 at Busch Stadium and have a phenomenal 20-8 record against their division. The Cubs, Pirates, Reds, and Brewers can’t touch them and it’s...

St. Louis Cardinals: Too much rallying?

Stop me if you’ve heard this before: the St. Louis Cardinals (49-24)  pulled out another win after trailing late in a game. This time against the Cubs, an unlikely hero emerged in Greg Garcia, who hit his first major league home run to tie the game in the 8th. The Redbirds would then load the bases up for Jhonny Peralta, who would drive in Peter Bourjos for the winning run in...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Friday, Jun 26

Yesterday’s Official Lineup got some late changes for two reasons: The weather in the CIN@PIT game started to look a little poorer than I’d hoped (the game started under a one hour delay) Starling Marte wasn’t playing For those two reasons I decided to remove most of my Pirates and add a couple Cardinals to Kolten Wong and Jason Heyward, who were already in my lineup. Unfortunately...

Jennings calls upon Marlins to stop trying to be heroes at the plate

The Marlins' Giancarlo Stanton also homered on the night, his 27th of the season, but it only accounted for one run, the Marlins' sole plate touch of a 6-1 loss at Marlins...

Cardinals’ Lineup Features Best Four Pack in Majors

(Photo Credit-STLToday.com) The St. Louis Cardinals have the best four pack in the Majors. What is that? I am not talking about Matt Holliday’s abs or a particular brand of energy drink. I am not talking about a four man group in the rotation or bullpen. I am talking about the first four guys in the lineup who are doing the heavy lifting for the Cards that has helped power the...

Anything You Can Do….

Just like Monday night, the score was 1-0.  Just like Monday night, the losing team had more opportunities to score than the winning team.  Just like Monday night, it came down to Kolten Wong in the ninth. Only difference?   The team that won . While the Cardinal offense might be missing in action right now, at least the pitching staff [...]

DraftKings: If It’s Wong, I Want To Be Right

If I was drafting a season-long fantasy baseball team today, I would target Kolten Wong very early. I remember before the start of the 2014 season, a major media outlet had a debate as to who the best future middle infielder would be. I was hoping one of them was going to talk about Wong, and to my surprise, they did. I was surprised because there was so much focus on future star...

Cardinals: Kolten Wong Is A Potent Leadoff Option

How tasty would it be if the St. Louis Cardinals’ leadoff hitter had a .350 plus on base percentage and a .460 plus slugging percentage and his name wasn’t Matt Carpenter? Say hello to Kolten Wong, the formerly self tortured young second baseman with a heavy stick who spent 2014 living down the terrible memory of a World Series pickoff. The Wong of 2015 has become a unique...

MMO Game Recap: Cardinals 9, Mets 0

Another day, another drubbing of the New York Mets. Just when you thought the Mets’ 10-2 loss to the Cardinals last night was bad enough, they somehow managed to top themselves tonight. It all got started in the first, when Mets starter Bartolo Colon was obviously without his best stuff. After giving up a single to lead off the game and another hit two batters later, Jhonny Peralta...

Ball Played: Surprise! Defense and ex-Tribe bats haunt Indians

The St. Louis Cardinals are the epitome of a well-run franchise1 . It might be impossible to know if it is more imperative to draft the correct player or develop the player correctly, but the Cardinals have the best assembly line coming out of their farm system in MLB. Yadier Molina, Matt Adams, Kolten Wong, Matt Carpenter, and Jon Jay are five everyday starters that came from that...
