    Gerald Laird? Really? Cardinals Make Another Less-Than-Impressive Off-Season Move

    Goodbye, Brendan Ryan. Hello, Gerald Laird. commons.wikimedia.orgGoodbye, high socks, goodbye, fun. ​So this is what building a winner looks like? This is what a championship-caliber team feels like? Interesting. I always thought winning would feel good. I always kind of pictured the fee ... More >>

    Cardinal Trade Targets From the Department of Dumb Ideas

    A bad idea, but way more fun than these others. ​Okay, so I know things aren't great around here in Cardinal country just right now. The team is scuffling, the injuries are piling up, and we're all still a little peeved over Ryan Ludwick being traded. And I also know, given the time of year, that ... More >>

    Previewing the Padres

    commons.wikimedia.orgAdmit it. That's a creepy effing mascot. ​​The Cardinals travel to San Diego tonight to begin a series against the surprising Padres, who sit atop the NL West.

    Return of the Mac

    ​So maybe, just maybe, perhaps, it might be, maybe, that the St. Louis Cardinals are preparing to name one Mark 'Big Mac' McGwire as their next hitting instructor. Maybe.  Okay, first off, to get it out of the way: I think this is a brilliant move. Mark McGwire, despite what shortcomings ... More >>

    Cardinals' Dan McLaughlin is Baseball's Second-Biggest Blabbermouth

    Last August, the ever-brooding Jeff Kent, finishing out his career with the Los Angeles Dodgers, threw one of his patented hissy fits when a Los Angeles Times columnist had the temerity to suggest that Manny Ramirez's arrival had helped Kent raise his batting average by twenty points.

    Nothing Shall Come From Something, Trade Again!

    And so, just like that, the Blaine Boyer Experiment comes to an end here in St. Louis. Farewell, Monorail Man, we hardly knew ye. (And barely cared.) Somehow, it just isn't as cool as Rocket Man, is it?

    U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S- Oh, Wait, Nevermind.

    Well, the United States is out of the World Baseball Classic. Honestly, I'm not particularly surprised, and you shouldn't be either. What I am surprised by, though, at least a bit, is how little I care.

    How Larry Bigbie Became the Most Important Man in Baseball

    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 >>

    Hall of Shame: Big Mac's a Martyr for the Steroid Era

    As you've likely heard by now, it's going to be another year for the Hall of Fame without Mark McGwire. In this year's HoF election, McGwire received only 21.9 percent of the vote, down from 23.6 percent a year ago. He received 23.5 percent the year before that. Not a big change year to year, I know ... More >>

    Tony La Russa's Message to Cardinal Fans

    Another day, another loss for the Cardinals. All just a part of this team's complete collapse over the last month of the season. You know what, though? I don't have a huge problem with the losses. I really don't. Don't get me wrong; it is very frustrating to watch this team go in the tank, but I c ... More >>

    Spitballin' Major League Chew
