    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 […]

    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 […]

    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 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

    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 […]

    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 […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/31/11 — Jake Westbrook

    Sitting 9.5 games back of the Milwaukee Brewers for top spot in the NL Central heading into yesterday’s game, the St. Louis Cardinals needed to make the most of their next eight games, as five of them were against those very same Brewers they are chasing.  They were able to get the job done last […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/21/11 — Albert Pujols

    With the official “best player in baseball” set to become a free agent at the end of the 2011 season, people started to worry when Albert Pujols got off to an excruciatingly slow start back in April and May. More recently, however, the Cardinals first baseman has started to look more like himself. Last night […]

    When the St. Louis Cardinals and the Milwaukee Brewers went into extra innings during their game at Miller Park last night, it appeared as though the late night was making Yadir Molina cranky, while home plate umpire Rob Drake was getting tired and probably just wanted to go home.  So when these two conflicting attitudes […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/24/11 — Ricky Romero

    In his last outing Ricky Romero pitched seven solid innings against the Atlanta Braves, allowing only six hits and two runs against.  However, he would still suffer the loss and he voiced his displeasure regarding the lack of run support following the game.  He was back on the mound yesterday afternoon, and this time around […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/2/11 — Aubrey Huff

    I know that hitting three home runs in a single game is not an easy thing to do, but Major League batters have been making it seem that way recently.  Carlos Beltran, Jose Bautista, Jason Giambi, Corey Hart and Carlos Quentin had all accomplished the feat heading into yesterday’s slate of games. You can now […]

    With St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa away from the team as he gets treatment in Phoenix for a case of shingles, someone has had to fill in.  Yesterday afternoon, that someone was pitcher Kyle Lohse, who sported the 66-year-old manager’s jersey, along with a pair of his patented shades, as he made his […]
