The Off-Season Begins- Looking Ahead

That was embarrassing to the Cardinals and their fans. Yes, it was great to win the NL Central and stuff but man they laid an egg against Washington. So let’s not review much but look ahead at the next season. Catcher Nothing changes with Molina plus I hope that Matt Wieters wants to return. He […]

This is What They Played For

It comes down to this. One weekend left and a one game lead with three games to go. Facing the Cubs without their top three players sounds easy, but it won’t be. The Cubs would love to knock the Cardinals out in reciprocation for last weekend. The Chicago subs are still trying to show the […]

With one out in the 9th inning, Jordan […]
