October 22, 2006

It was a cold, rainy night at Comerica Park in Detroit, but not one person at the ballpark cared about the weather. Game 2 of the World Series was a pivotal contest for both the Detroit Tigers and the St. Louis Cardinals: the former had to win to stay alive because a 0-2 deficit headed […]

Cardinals Score a New York Sized Victory

October 19, 2006

Fans who tuned in to watch Game 7 of the hotly contested NLCS between the Cardinals and Mets got all that they bargained for, and then some.  The finale of this series was a thriller, even though the high-powered offenses combined to score just 4 runs, and it was of the most fun games to watch of […]

Cardinals Weave Together Game 5 Win

October 17, 2006

My thoughts before this evening’s NLCS Game 5 were that whichever team came away with the victory tonight would almost certainly win the NL Pennant and go on to face the Tigers in the World Series.  With the series tied 2-2, if the Mets won Game 5, it would be hard to believe that they […]

October 12, 2006

Game 1 of the NLCS between the St. Louis Cardinals and the New York Mets belonged to the pitchers. In games like this, it’s important to take advantage of every chance you get. The Mets got the message, while the Cardinals were taught baseball’s most elementary lesson, you can’t win if you don’t score. Tom […]

The Road Warrior Keeps San Diego Alive

October 7, 2006

After the first two games of the NLDS between the San Diego Padres and St. Louis Cardinals, it looked as though St. Louis would be walking away with an easy victory. The Redbirds dominated the Friars in San Diego, much to the chagrin of Padres fans everywhere, and much to the delight of Cardinals fans […]

Astros Glide While Cardinals Slide

September 27, 2006

  The Cardinals’ manager can’t like what he’s seen recently Tony La Russa can only shake his head and stare in dismay at the recent play of his St. Louis Cardinals.  They can’t pitch, they can’t hit, they’re making all kinds of mistakes on the basepaths and in the field; is there anything else that […]
