Game 10: Cardinals 8, Diamondbacks 2

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. They only scored 21 through the first eight games of the season. Kyle McClellan was doing it all tonight. Not only did he throw 6 innings and allow just 1 run, he … Continue reading

Game 9: Cardinals 6, Giants 1

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. Matt Holliday was back in the lineup, but I can’t even credit that as a big boost to the offense as Allen Craig was more than capable in the interim. The big difference?

10 ways to improve the Cardinals

He’s also cheaper. Double win. 2) Move Schumaker to short stop and Theriot to second. 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

Game 7: Giants 5, Cardinals 4

It was an ugly, ugly game. Someone called it a great game and I corrected saying that basically both teams had been equally mediocre. 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
