I've heard about the lives of small swift birds. Cards 10 Cubs 6.

Travis Wood
The Cubs looked to head out into the All-Star break with 3 out of 4 against their heated rival. But the Cardinals had their ace on the mound and thousands of Cardinal fans that had spent the day inhaling WD-40 and cleaning every Duane Reed and Walgreens of their cough syrup to please. They did... Read more »

Anarchist's Brunch- Snapshot of the future.
That’s how it’s supposed to look. Packed house. National TV. Best team in the league in the other dugout. Cubs winning the game. Decidedly. Yes we can zoom out and see where the Cardinals are in the standings, as an organization and where the Cubs are and realize that there’s still lots of work to... Read more »

Bye-Bye Redbirds, have you any wool? SF 9 Cards 0

Bye-Bye Redbirds, have you any wool? SF 9 Cards 0
Typically, you want your game 7′s to be tight knit affairs. Close games. Barn Burners. Games you can’t wait to talk about the next day and games you will argue about being one of the best of all times. But when the opponent is the Cardinals, you’ll gladly sacrifice all of that just to see... Read more »

If I live to ninety, I will never figure you out. Giants 6 Cards 1

If I live to ninety, I will never figure you out. Giants 6 Cards 1
There’s no better words to hear in sports than “Game 7″. Fortunately for all of us, we get to say those words on through the night. An Amped Giant’s team took advantage of a sputtering Chris Carpenter, knocking out 5 early runs. And Ryan Voglesong picked up where Barry Zito left off, tossing 7 strong... Read more »

Zito! Whoa oh, oh, oh, oh! Giants 5 Redbirds 0.

Zito! Whoa oh, oh, oh, oh! Giants 5 Redbirds 0.
Barry Zito, went Jesus Christ Superstar when the Giants needed it most. Zito, who was scratched in favor of Tim Lincecum for game 4, evoked memories of John Tudor and Jimmy Key as he went 7 2/3 scorless innings. Meanwhile, Unshaven mess Lance Lyn fell apart. After 3 strong that saw him strike out 5,... Read more »

Cutting down the beanstalk. Cards 8 Giants 3

Cutting down the beanstalk. Cards 8 Giants 3
Ahh, the feeling of water finding it’s own level. The first round of the playoffs features a full 20 games, almost all of them thrilling and entertaining. Gotta write about this, this is fun methinks. And naturally, both Championship series turn out to be duds. Witness tonights contest, that saw the Cardinals take advantage of... Read more »

Delayed flight. Cardinals 3 Giants 1.

Delayed flight. Cardinals 3 Giants 1.
Despite an injury to their best player, a 3 1/2 hour rain delay, and their starting pitcher trying like hell to be ordinary, the Cardinals managed to pull off a very annoying 3-1 victory over the San Francisco Giants and a 2-1 lead in the series. The Giants got on the board first when the... Read more »

Even Steven. Giants 7 Cards 1.

Even Steven. Giants 7 Cards 1.
Giants manager Bruce Bochy didn’t call game 2 a must win. He called it “a critical game”. And his team played like it. Ryan Voglesong went 7 innings, becoming the first Giants pitcher to go more than 5 innings in the postseason and the Giant bats went oomp-upside-the-head of Cardinal starter and all around annoyance...

Let's wrap two! Tigers 3 Yanks 0. Cards 6 Giants 4
So the ALCS and the NLCS got underway this weekend. With the Yankees trying to find their offense and comeback from a gut punching  game 1 loss on Saturday night (which also saw them lose their Captain Derek Jeter to a fractured ankle.). And the upstart Giants and Cardinals, both unlikely game 5 winners, opening... Read more »

Temba, his eyes Red!
Hi folks. Haven’t posted in awhile. But I gotta speak.   I had my ticket, I cruised through security, was all set to get on board and head on down to Schadenfreude City, where the bums are gone and the baseball is pretty. And then last night happened. Arrggghhh!   The past 10 days had... Read more »
