    Stat Line Of The Night — 5/22/12 — Adam Wainwright

    After undergoing Tommy John surgery and missing the entire 2011 MLB season, Adam Wainwright has struggled to regain the form that saw him go 20-11 with a 2.42 ERA while finishing second in Cy Young voting in 2010.  He entered last night’s contest with just two wins in his first eight starts and an ERA […]

    Baseball Bling: 15 Best World Series Championship Rings

    This past Saturday was “Ring Day” at Busch Stadium in St. Louis—the day every member of the 2011 St. Louis Cardinals (plus every other employee of the franchise) had been waiting for since the team won its 11th World Series Championship back in October. And as it turns out, it was well worth the wait. Rubies, […]

  • The Rally Squirrel Is On The St. Louis Cardinals’ World Series Rings

    The Rally Squirrel Is On The St. Louis Cardinals’ World Series Rings

    Last year we were introduced to the St. Louis Cardinals’ “Rally Squirrel” during Game 3 of the NLDS.  The Cards would go on to win that series against the Philadelphia Phillies, and a few weeks later they would claim the franchise’s 11th World Series title by beating the Texas Rangers in seven games. The Rally […]

    Listen To Ron Washington’s Profanity-Laden Game 7 Pep Talk (Audio)

    Remember when accomplished dancer Ron Washington said the Texas Rangers didn’t need a pep talk for Game 7 against the St. Louis Cardinals? He was lying. This profanity-laden speech is truly priceless. Knute Rockne he’s not, but it’s interesting to get a glimpse at what goes on behind closed doors in the Texas Rangers clubhouse […]

    Chris Carpenter Skates With The St. Louis Blues (Video)

    After winning the second World Series title of his career, perhaps St. Louis Cardinals ace Chris Carpenter should consider taking a shot at wining a Stanley Cup next.  He took the first step towards doing just that yesterday, as Carpenter stepped on the ice and took part in a practice with the St. Louis Blues. […]

    Corey Patterson Is A Human Sprinkler (Video)

    How does a player like Corey Patterson, who hasn’t taken a single at bat during the post-season, make it onto the highlights during Game 6 of the World Series?  By displaying his ability to use his mouth like a sprinkler while FOX’s cameras are focused on him in the bottom of the tenth inning. It […]

    9 Most Unlikely World Series MVPs

    The 2011 World Series is in full swing, with the Rangers headed back to St. Louis for Game 6 with a 3-2 series lead over the Cardinals thanks to a huge 4-2 victory last night. And in such a tightly contested series—it looks like we have a pretty decent shot at a Game 7 for […]

    Elvis Andrus Was Flashing The Leather Last Night (Video)

    While some great work in the field didn’t earn the Texas Rangers’ Elvis Andrus the “Stat Line of the Night,” it did earn his team the victory in Game 2 of the World Series.  And it will also earn him his very own post, featuring two of his incredible plays with the glove that helped […]

    There Was A Time When No One Knew Who Tony La Russa Was (Video)

    After winning two World Series Championships and four Manager of the Year awards during his 33-year career as an MLB manager, most sports fans in North America could easily identify St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa, but that hasn’t always been the case.  A few decades ago, when La Russa was the youngest manager […]

    Shane Victorino Brings Us This Outfield Blooper (GIF)

    Shane Victorino has won a Gold Glove Award in each of the last three seasons and he didn’t commit a single error all year in 2011, but you wouldn’t know it after watching him in center field during Game 4 of the NLDS last night. While many will be quick to blame the bright evening […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night — 10/5/11 — David Freese

    Stat Line Of The Night — 10/5/11 — David Freese

    The Cardinals entered last night’s game in need of a victory if they wanted their magical run to continue.  Beating the Phillies is no simple task, but David Freese would make it look awfully easy with his impressive performance at the plate. Freese had only three at bats on the night, but he made the […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 9/21/11 — David Freese

    After watching the Atlanta Braves drop yet another game to the Florida Marlins, the St. Louis Cardinals had a great opportunity to close in on top spot in the National League wild card race.  In order to take advantage of that opportunity, someone would need to step up and capture the moment, and with the […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 9/1/11 — Albert Pujols

    When the Cards entered their three-game series against the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday, it appeared as though the Brewers had the NL Central locked up.  That no longer appears to be the case, thanks to a sweep by the Cards. On Tuesday it was pitcher Jake Westbrook providing the unexpected run support with a go-ahead […]
