Who is this team? After a game in the desert, the Cardinals offense is certainly not thirsty. After 6 runs last night, they added on another 8 tonight for a total of 14 in the last two nights.

Great. I miss a game and the Cardinals offense breaks out. Six isn’t just a serious number, it’s how many the Cardinals scored today.

Might as well play one of our middle infielders in their proper position. 3) Check into the legality of allowing Adam Wainwright to use … Continue reading

I intentionally waited to write last night’s game recap because I didn’t want to be overly harsh on my favorite baseball team. It is only 7 games into the season, but I realize that and statements are made with that in mind. But still, this team … Continue reading
