Broad City + The Friday Links

I’m on the hunt for new TV shows. Why? Ever load up the DVR and get the feeling like you’re about to do work, not relax? I need some fresh blood. So I started cruising around the webs to see who could make the cut. Broad City, people. Broad City. (This is where I’d embed a YouTube clip for you to enjoy, but it turns out Amtrack has now blocked out YouTube. Which on one hand...

How Will You Remember The Tim Cooney Era?

Today Adam Wainwright was supposed to be on the mound pitching the series finale against the Phillies on a beautiful St. Louis day. Instead he was in post-op, recovering from achilles surgery and a young lefty by the name Tim Cooney was called up from AAA to make his MLB debut to try and plug the hole that Wainwright’s injury left behind. We knew it was a tall order. We didn...

Cardinals Sue Non-Profit For Alleged Ticket Scalping Scheme

You can’t be bad and have ticket controversies. The Cardinals are good. They have been good. They will continue to be good. And people will pay a premium for good seats on good days to watch good teams. The Lewis & Clark Baseball League knew (knows) this. And if you believe the allegations that the Cardinals have made, then they took it to the next logical place… and made...

The Funk Is Hanging Over The Cardinals – Tom Hanks Is Here To Help

Here’s the text I sent out to a small group around 10:15a on Sunday morning: Could have been rich, boys. Could have been rich. The Cardinals dropped the official guillotine a few hours before the game against the Phillies last night – Adam Wainwright – our ace – will be out of commission until spring training ’16. And it doesn’t matter what way you slice it… this suuuuuuucks...

The Blues

Ed Note: This is about hockey. If you don’t care about hockey, you can skip this one… This past week, Jack White (of The White Stripes) made a six-figure donation to National Blues Museum that’s under construction in downtown STL. The donation will fund a museum feature called MIX IT UP, an interactive experience that allows patrons to use “intuitive editing tools” to “blend...

Adam Wainwright Lost For 2015 Season

The Cardinals are currently 12-4 with their next 5 games against 2 of the worst teams in baseball. They are in striking distance of once of the best Aprils in team history. So why’s everybody like: pic.twitter.com/q2NvJTD9UR — FeRg (@JFerguson50) April 26, 2015 Adam Wainwright has been officially placed on the 15-day disabled list as of Sunday morning. He will have an MRI...

Chris Rock On Race In Baseball

This is a few days old now, but worth the watch. Chris Rock on the state of race in baseball for HBO’s ‘Real Sports’. And yes, the Cardinals & STL get a special shoutout around the 1:08 mark. Photo:

Cardinals Pitching Has Been Bonkers In 2015

You guys, the Cardinals pitching has been ridiculous this season. #1 in ER (29, next closest is 44) #1 in ERA (2.06, next closest is 2.81) #1 in RUNS (32, next closest is 47) #1 in BAA (.209, next closes is .215) Mike Wacha has made 3 starts. His opponents? Johnny Cueto (’14 All-Star, ’14 NL Cy Young runner up) Johnny Cueto (’14 12th place NL MVP) Max Scherzer (’14 All...

The New Football Stadium + The Friday Links

If you haven’t seen it already, here’s the video that the #STLNFL group presented to the NFL this week regarding the new riverfront stadium plan: A couple of things here: 1) Damn STL looks good in virtual reality! 2) What is In-Seat digital display (1:39 mark)? They’re going to run instant replay OVER the fans? I don’t know how the hell that works, but I love it. 3) That...

Wong Went Ahead And Had Himself A Night

Alright, now. Do your thing Kolten Wong. LINK HERE He pretty much strapped his teammates on his back last night and carried them to a win against a team that many picked to represent the NL in World Series. Tre-men-dous game. We even got some e-mail about Mr. Wong… OK, I’m finally on the Kolten Wong bandwagon. Call me a skeptic, but whenever the Cards bring up a top prospect...

Matt Adams Not Off To The Ideal Start

It’s fair to say that the Cardinals had questions about Matt Adams. Signing Mark Reynolds served a duel purpose: 1) Let Matt Adams know that he’s going to have to earn his playing time in 2015 and that if he doesn’t perform, the team has viable options to replace him on a regular basis. 2) Actually replace Matt Adams if he isn’t able to get the job done. A $2M insurance policy...

Cardinals Make It Up To Andrea Karl

Andrea Karl is a PHD candidate in the molecular genetics and genomics program at Washington University. She also enjoys running and finished the GO! STL Marathon on April 12th in 2 hours, 54 minutes and 28 seconds, good enough for second place. Until it was discovered that the woman who beat her across the line didn’t actually, you know, run the race. Ms. Karl was a much better...

The Cardinals Have Called Up Navy Lt. Mitch Harris

One of the more welcome additions to professional sporting events the past several years has been the teams desire to honor more military personnel, both active and retired. Bringing them into the spotlight, often times before games begin, the moment gives 10K, 20K, sometimes 80K people the chance to show their support for the men and women who are/were protecting our freedom. Not...

What Cardinals Player Is Using Pete Rose As An ‘Advisor’?

Ken Rosenthal broke the story that FOX Sports has hired Pete Rose to be a commentator and guest studio analyst. Rose will appear on the MLB pregame show on Fox and Fox Sports 1 as well as MLB Whiparound, America’s Pregame and Fox Sports Live. Interesting move by FOX. Can’t wait to see how Charlie Hustle plays on TV. In his regular sports media column for Sports Illustrated, Richard...

About That Matt Carpenter Dive

Ed Note: This is a special guest post from friend of the site, John Madigan. Folks, I watch a lot of baseball. I have done so for years. My (female) roommate dreads April through October because I claim complete dominance of the TV. I’ll say that Matt Carpenter’s somersault slide into home plate on Friday’s game was maybe the ballsiest, coolest play I’ve ever seen. Looked...

You Got An Arm? You Want To Come Out Of The Bullpen?

Remember your birthday as a kid? It was freaking awesome. You’d get a ton of new toys and you’d spend the next week trying to figure out just how much time you needed to spend with each one to create optimal fun. Mike Matheny seems to be taking this approach with his bullpen. If you’ve got an arm, you’re coming in – no questions asked. In the past three Cardinals wins,...

From The Inbox: “Here Comes The King”

From time to time, readers of the site will reach out. And from time to time, those reaching out will not be doing so to tell us how awful the site has become and how they’re appalled that the Internet allows such drivel to exist. Last night I had a bit of a back and forth with a reader on a couple of different topics, when he reveled that he didn’t know that the song that plays...
