St. Louis played 25 minutes of competitive baseball.

I don’t really want to talk too much about this one. The offense will come around, but St. Louis does not have the starting pitching depth to chase down Milwaukee. Will the Cardinals make moves to shore up the rotation this month? History says probably not, but we’ll see!

Also, I’ll be making the trek to St. Louis next week for the Dodgers series, my first time at Busch. Last month I asked...

The Cardinals are in a funk. But they’re fine. Really.

Morning Viva El Birdos!

I’m on vacation. That means some of my normal Saturday fare is going to leak out into the middle of the week. No deep analysis today. No graphs and charts. No well-considered witticisms that I’ve worked on for three days.

Instead, just some off-the-cuff, “Stream of Consciousness (SOC)” ramblings about whatever I feel like rambling...

Cardinals Fans Are Tired Of Wasting Star Talent

The St. Louis Cardinals are having a rough go of things lately. After two tough losses at home ahead of a key stretch of games against teams over .500, things have gone south a bit.

Adam Wainwright confirms future broadcasting plans (kind of) - A Hunt and Peck

Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

I mean, if you are a gigantic weirdo like me, then he did

As he approaches 41 years old Adam Wainwright is likely playing in his final season of professional baseball. During that time — seventeen seasons played, eighteen years total — he has been the man responsible for a lot of great Cardinals memories, on and off the field with his combination of athletic talent and charismatic personality. That mix of traits makes him a great fit to be a broadcaster...

The 44-38 St. Louis Cardinals have dropped four of five as they seek to right the ship against the 47-34 Atlanta Braves Tuesday at 7:20 PM EST. Atlanta is perhaps MLB's hottest team, going 24-7 since the start of June, and will send Ian Anderson to the mound in this one.

One Under the Radar Hitting Prospect to Know at Each Level

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Lets have some fun with prospects! We’ll go all the way down to the DSL.

Gabe is giving us all great updates on the St. Louis Cardinals hitting and pitching prospects this week, and that got me thinking about prospects too. I tend to follow the whole system pretty closely throughout the year and there are a lot of guys who have impressed me this season.

To makes things more digestible, I’m going to give you guys just one hitter at each level who I think is...

A look at the hitting prospects halfway through the season

The update you’ve all been waiting for

It’s been too long guys. One month into the season, I shared the stats of all the Cardinals’ top prospects. Some in the comments wanted this to be a monthly thing, but honestly around the beginning of June, it looks like I was writing a lot of series previews. And the times I didn’t have a preview, I had something in mind to write. And then of course, I missed an entire week from vacation. But we are...

An Open Thread for July 4, 2022

That was a tough series loss. It felt like Arenado going atomic for two games should have been enough for a series win but it wasn’t. Now the Cardinals travel to Atlanta for a 3-game series with the Braves. After a 4-6 week some positive momentum would be nice.

There were plenty of moments in the Phillies series that were tough to watch, but perhaps the most frustrating issue is the lack of production from the catchers.

Ivan Herrera...

Cardinals Sinkers: The Ugly

In the final installment of my sinker series, I take a look at how three sinkers with great movement have been among the worst sinkers on the team.

Hey guys! I’ve returned after a brief hiatus to bring you all the final article in my sinker series. There can’t be a good and a bad without and ugly, right? I thought I was done with this series after The Bad, but I’m back with another trio of sinkers to analyze.

I’ve covered most of the sinkers at this point, so I just want to focus...
