    Roy Oswalt: The Dream That Just Won't Die

    ​​Oswalt wearing the uniform of his last team, the Phillies. I always thought those two were just a terrible fit for each other. ​I've been very skeptical of the Cardinals and Roy Oswalt as a match for quite some time now. It's not that I don't think Oswalt would be a really nice add for the R ... More >>

    Cardinals Call Up Pitching Prospect Lance Lynn; But Why Is He Starting Tonight?

    Lance Lynn looks a little frustrated. I know just how he feels. ​I must admit, this team continually finds a way to confuse and flabbergast me at every turn.

    Is The Cards' Bullpen Fixable?

    Oh, Billy Mays. We still miss you. ​We all saw the disaster over the weekend in San Francisco. Don't pretend you didn't. The Cardinals' supposed closer, Ryan Franklin, blew two more saves, giving him three on the season in four tries. In both games, the Cards were a single out away from winning be ... More >>

    Hey, it's a key, it works. (Also a forgotten classic of power pop you should totally pick up if you ever see it like at a yard sale or something.) ​The second "half" of the baseball season kicks off for the Cardinals tonight (and I put "half" in quotes because technically we passed the halfw ...

    A Brief Interlude of Niceness For Jason Motte

    ​The Cardinals haven't been playing very well lately, plain and simple. The offense has been wildly inconsistent, the defense has been ragged, the pitching is beginning to show definite signs of stress.

    Russ Springer: An Opportunity Missed?

    Russ Springer was claimed off waivers by the Tampa Bay Rays just the other day, and I can't help but wonder if the Cardinals didn't miss an opportunity by not putting in a claim of their own. Springer, you'll remember, spent both the 2007 and 2008 seasons with the Cardinals, pitching remarkably ...

    Born to Lohse: Extending Kyle Lohse's Contract Won't Win the Cardinals a Championship

    The Cardinals kept Kyle Lohse out of his start yesterday afternoon. Apparently, Lohse was meeting with the Cards' team doctors, most likely in advance of announcement of a new deal for the right-hander. So what does that mean, you ask? Well, I have to tell you, I'm really torn on this one. I'm tor ... More >>

    A while back, I took a look at some of the more important players and issues that I thought would factor into the Cardinals' stretch run for 2008. After long hours of careful consideration...
