It's Opening Day, St. Louis! Everyone is totally completely losing it this Monday morning because they are just so friggin' excited! (Even if the police are watching you, and there's no more free parking.) We're pretty excited here at Daily RFT and thought we'd share that excitement with you, dear ... More >>
You know, it hasn't been the easiest season so far for the Cardinals. Don't get me wrong; it hasn't been a really miserable season of nothing but struggles, by any means. But when you looked at this team on paper before the season started, it looked like a team that should have comfortably taken the ... More >>
Henry Bollinger woke up at 5:30 a.m. last Friday and tried not to disturb his wife and two young boys. He stepped out into the early-morning chill of Oakville, Missouri, and drove north, stopping only for a cup of coffee on his way to Busch Stadium. Once there, he took the elevator two flight ...

Jon Jay: Looks like a greater starter until he actually is.Last year at the trade deadline, the Cardinals got rid of one of their most productive, talented offensive players -- an outfielder -- in search of pitching help.

We've all seen that movie, the one with Dennis Quaid, and he used to be a big prospect pitcher, but he blew out his arm, right? And then he goes to big league camp one year, after he's been coaching little league for like ten years, and all of a sudden he can throw like a hundred miles an hour? Yeah ... More >>
What can I say? I'm a sucker for punishment. So in the spirit of twisting the knife just a hair more -- and also because there is actual news to report -- I present to you the Remains of Anthony Reyes Watch. Why can't I quit you, Anthony?
The Cardinals and "The Big 550" KTRS-AM spent the month of October hammering out a new operating agreement that changes the way Cardinals broadcasts get promoted.

Wild card season is upon us. That time of the year when the division races are mostly sewn up, and you start looking at teams from all over the league, trying to keep track of half a dozen different schedules all at once. However the Bud Selig era in baseball is eventually remembered, it will inev ... More >>
Well, that was certainly an ugly game. In fact, it was so ugly that I really don't have anything much to say about it. And so, I won't. But while the Cardinals themselves were crapping the bed against a Pittsburgh Pirates team that has traded away their best players this year, a very interesting d ... More >>
I remember the first time I ever saw Anthony Reyes pitch. It was in August 2005, when he made his big-league debut against the Milwaukee Brewers.
And so it's on to Detroit. After a successful trip to Boston, (though the series ended on a bit of a sour note) the Cardinals now travel to the Motor City to take on the Detroit Tigers. First off, can I just say how ridiculous it is that the Cardinals have now played the Tigers three years in a ... More >>
