ST. LOUIS CARDINALS NEWS

This is not the biggest series, it’s the only series

Just over 72 hours ago, I published a post about how hard it was going to be for the Pirates to catch the Cardinals, even if they won two out of three or three out of every four games in every series from here on out until the end of the year.

Will 2015 Cards go down as best edition ever?

With 30 games remaining in the 2015 regular season, the St. Louis Cardinals have a chance to win more games than any group of Red Birds before it. At 86-46, they need to go 21-9 to become the first Cardinals team ever to win 107 games. Tony LaRussa's 2004 club won 105 and the 1942 Cards posted 106.

What’s it like being a Pirates fan? You’d think being 28 games over .500 on September 1st, it’d be pretty good. Somehow, though, they’re 6 games in arrears for the NL Central lead and watching the Cardinals push to 40 games over .500 with a walk-off home run in the bottom of the 9th inning. I've got nothing. They are the worst. The absolute worst. — Brian McElhinny (@rtjr...

How Much Would You Pay To Keep Jason Heyward In STL?

Here’s Jason Heyward’s line so for 2015: .293 BA | .350 OPB | .445 SLG | .795 OPS | 11 HR | 50 RBI | 131 H in 447 AB His oWAR is 3.0 and his WAR is 4.6. If you go by the baseline (and yes, I know this is way more complicated) of 5M/WAR point, then Jason Heyward is having a 23M season while the Cardinals actually pay him 4.5M. Bottom line? Heyward is KILLING it in a free agency...
