CNN’s Confusing Domestic Violence Graphic is…

This isn’t brain surgery, guys and gals. The St. Louis Cardinals play the sport of baseball in Missouri, while the Arizona Cardinals play the sport of football in Arizona. Sure the Arizona Cardinals of the National Football League were once the St. Louis Cardinals at the same time that MLB’s St. Louis Cardinals. But not a single person born after the Jimmy Carter Administration...

Throwing up zeros: 21 fun facts about the Cardinals' 21 shutouts

ST. LOUIS -- With 10 games left in their regular season, the Cardinals still have a shot to beat the 1968 club's record of 30 shutouts in a season. All they have to do is repeat Adam Wainwright's performance from Wednesday night in every remaining game. Still, with the 21 shutouts the Cardinals have recorded, they have matched the 1943 team for third most in a season, behind...

Shelby Miller has been lights out since Yadi got back behind the plate

The St. Louis Cardinals' starting rotation is dominating with a consistency not seen by the franchise in nearly 12 years.

Bud Selig Shields Himself From NY Media With Cardinals

Bud Selig is on his farewell tour of the MLB, visiting all 30 teams during his last year as Commissioner of Baseball. Some stops are more pleasant than others. The Mets are currently 7 games under .500 and 15 games out of 1st place in the NL East. They might play in America’s biggest media market, but to most of the sporting world, the Mets are totally irrelevant. Unlike the Cubs...

Holliday's dash for winning run lifts Cards

If there is a hereafter, Enos Slaughter was there smiling Wednesday night. Johnny Pesky was weeping. For his part, Matt Holliday wasn’t too worried about the history those two former major leaguer players share. But Holliday’s “mad dash” in the seventh inning keyed a 2-0 Cardinals victory over the Milwaukee Brewers and brought back the spirit of the infamous play in the 1946...

A Shining Knight, Riding To The Rescue

In the poster and press release for the current Instagram outing by the Cardinals, #BirdToTheFuture, the pitching ace for the Redbirds is billed as “Sir Adam Wainwright “.  While I’ve had a chance to see the full outing and have seen why that’s the case (it’s pretty humorous), the real reason that he should have the title is because, [...]

Wainwright puts August slump even further behind him with shutout win over Brewers

ST. LOUIS -- When Adam Wainwright went out for the ninth inning Wednesday night, he had a chance to accomplish a pitching rarity: Complete a shutout in fewer than 100 pitches. He got the shutout in a 2-0 victory over the Brewers but ended up throwing 102 pitches. But one of those pitches in the ninth inning was as impressive -- and encouraging to the Cardinals -- as any he has thrown...

Bad breaks costly for Brewers in narrow loss

With Adam Wainwright and Mike Fiers locked in a pitcher's duel, whichever team blinked first Wednesday night was likely going to fall victim to a tough defeat.

Carlos Gomez had the Busch Stadium turf give out from under him while trying to field a single...

Adam Wainwright took the hill Wednesday night at Busch Stadium following a Cardinals’ loss. That usually means good news for St Louis. It would be again tonight.
