TLR, Bob Schneider and the Twitter bird. Don't ask me, but the image works.Tony La Russa is driving home. Rather than flying home after the season, he's taking his time heading back to the Bay Area this year and recreating a trip he took in 1996, which you all may recall was the year he took over ...

So the great fracas that was the Reds/Cardinals series is over, with our boys in red roundly thumping their boys in red and taking over sole possession of first place in the National League Central. The series was an outstanding one, full of drama and heartbreak and brilliance on both the offensi ... More >>
This Royal did NOT start against the Cardinals over the weekend; however, I'm convinced he could have thrown six shutout without much of a problem. So the 2010 edition of the I-70 series went about as poorly as one could possibly imagine. The Cardinals managed to lose two of three, Aaron Miles pl ... More >>
Jeff Suppan, the Cardinals' 2006 NLCS MVP, was released yesterday by the Milwaukee Brewers, the club that signed him to a four-year $42 million contract after the Cards' World Series run. Here's an indication of how much "Soup" will be missed by the Brew Crew faithful:With Aaron Miles already back i ... More >>
Farewell to the glare. We hardly knew ye or your crazy eyes. The Cardinals have agreed to deal utility infielder Julio Lugo to the Baltimore Orioles for either a player to be named later or cash considerations. The deal is still awaiting final approval from the commissioner's office, indicat ... More >>
Wow. What a horrible pun. That's really the sort of title someone should lose their job over. The Cardinals put the finishing touches on their new dynasty yetsterday by resigning backup catcher Jason LaRue and bringing in utility infielder Ruben Gotay on a minor league deal. With these final ... More >>
Juan Encarnacion, the former Cardinal right fielder who lost much of the vision in his right eye after being struck by a foul ball off the bat of Aaron Miles, is running for a Senatorial seat in his native Dominican Republic.
Yesterday afternoon, we saw what was, in my ever so humble opinion, the best start so far this year from a Cardinal go to waste. Chris Carpenter deserves some apologies, and a better outcome next time out. The question, of course, is how do you get him a better outcome next time?
Spring training is officially underway, with real, no-foolin' games being played and everything. The beginning of a long, twisty road that leads through summer and into autumn, hopefully ending late in October with a nice, new piece of hardware to add to the trophy case at Busch Stadium.At the very ...

Hey, you guys remember Larry Bigbie? No? Outfielder? Played a little for the Cards one year, actually? He got hurt quite a bit. No, never really made it big. Oh, yeah, plenty talented; just didn't quite seem to ever get the breaks to fall his way, you know? No, that's Kerry Robinson. Bigbie was ... More >>
To begin this new and shiny year of 2009, I want first to take a quick look back at a small bit of the Cardinals' past. I know, this is a time to be looking forward, but hey, I am nothing if not a contrarian. So in this baseball card format reminiscence, we take a look back at the Aaron Miles E ... More >>
Okay, I have to say, I just flat out don't know what to make of this. Apparently, the Cubs have just signed Aaron Miles. Huh. Alright, everyone who saw this coming, raise your hands. Be honest. Yes, that means you. That's right, put your hand back down. Seriously, has there ever, and I mean eve ... More >>
