    The Most Momentous Moments of the Aughts: The Cardinals

    So on this last day of the decade, I had myself a thought. "Aaron," I thought, "You should really try to do some sort of decade-long wrap for St. Louis sports." ​"You know what, Aaron? That's an excellent idea!" I paused for a moment, considering the notion further. "Now why didn't I think of ... More >>

    Khlosure for Khalil

    At last, the suspense is over. Our long national (or at least local), nightmare is over. We finally know who the player to be named later in the Khalil Greene trade is. The Cardinals and Padres completed the deal that brought Greene here yesterday, with Luke Gregerson, a right-handed relie ...

    Baseball Card of the Week: Miles to Go Before I Sleep

    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 >>

    Cardinals Add Pitcher Trever Miller and Shortstop Khalil Greene

    Well, when things finally decide to happen, they do so in a hurry, don't they? First things first: Trever Miller. Can I just tell you all that when I heard the Cardinals finally came to terms with Miller, my heart offered up a great and glorious hosanna to the heavens above? "At last," I thought, " ... More >>
