Whether Lackey needed rest or not, he got it -- and came up big against Reds

ST. LOUIS -- Cardinals manager Mike Matheny sounded pretty sure that extra rest made a difference in John Lackey's performance Friday night. Lackey didn't sound quite as convinced, but he certainly couldn't argue with the results. Pitching for the first time since he was passed over in the rotation, Lackey turned in the kind of performance the Cardinals were seeking when...

Home runs by Randal Grichuk and Matt Holliday just enough for John Lackey as Cardinals edge Reds 2-1

As the Cardinals started their final regular season series at home in 2014 Friday night against the Reds, they would quickly jump out to a 2-0 lead in the Bottom of the 1st. They would do something for just the second time all season. That would be hitting back-to-back home runs. Randal Grichuk put the Cardinals on top 1-o with his second home run of the season, Matt Holliday would...

For the St. Louis Cardinals, a team very much in the postseason discussion with a two and a half game lead in the NL Central, there are still questions up in the air.

Will the St. Louis Cardinals finally stick with Jon Jay as a regular starter?

The St. Louis Cardinals have received impressive contributions from a large number of young players who graduated through the team’s farm system in recent years, but none may be more underappreciated than Jon Jay. Jay has been in Major League Baseball for five years now after his debut in 2010 when he hit a solid .300 in 105 games for the last Cardinals team to fail to reach the...

St Louis Cardinals: will the Pirates catch them?

With only 10 games remaining in the season for the St. Louis Cardinals, they hold a 2.5 game lead over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Is that a substantial enough lead, or will the Pirates catch the Redbirds? The Cardinals have split the first 2 games with the Brewers, and have Shelby Miller opposing Kyle Lohse tonight. Both teams are playing with a sense of urgency right now, and the Cardinals...

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, [...]

Adam Wainwright’s complete game shutout out-duels Mike Fiers as Cardinals edge Brewers 2-0

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. Yeah, but what about Brewers’ starter Mike Fiers? Fiers, making his first start after hitting Giancarlo Stanton in the head, would bounce back sharp against the Cardinals as the Brewers looked to gain more ground in...

Gerardo Parra gives ball to kid seated next to guy who interfered with catch (video)

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Gerardo Parra had every right to be peeved with at least one St. Louis Cardinals fan during Tuesday’s game at Busch Stadium. Instead, he took the high road, demonstrated a lot of class and even went above and beyond to make nice. While chasing down a Chris Carpenter pop-up that drifted into […] The post Gerardo Parra gives ball to kid seated next...

Trevor Rosenthal Wasn’t Popular On Twitter Last Night

What type of athlete would you be? Would you log on to Twitter and read your @ replies? Or just ignore them all together? I’d like to think I could ignore them, but I couldn’t. I’d probably even search for my own name and reply to people that didn’t even @ me. I’m not proud of it. But let’s get real, Twitter’s like touching a injury… it hurts more when you do it,...

St Louis Cardinals regain momentum, sweep Rockies

After a nearly destructive three game stretch against the Reds threatened to sap their momentum, the Cardinals handled the dismal Colorado Rockies this weekend, handing them a three-game sweep in St. Louis. Strong pitching performances from two familiar faces (Shelby Miller and Adam Wainwright) and a not-so-familiar one (Marco Gonzales) allowed the Redbirds to coast and finish the...

Cards fan irate over sexual commercial during games

A middle-aged St. Louis Cardinals fan wrote a letter to the editor at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch to bemoan the fact that a decent, God-fearing and church-going  fan can’t tune into a broadcast of a baseball game without being bombarded by “pornographic” commercials featuring scantily clad women chowing down on meaty hamburgers. It’s bad enough […] The post Cardinals fan...
