I bet you didn't know that Lance Lynn's legal first name is Michael. Well, it sure is, but that's not all that he has in common with fellow starters Mike Leake and Michael Wacha. Through the first three turns of the rotation these three have been far and away the
First things first: The title of this article is referencing a Todd Rundgren classic, not 2015's most overplayed song by Adele. Shame on you for thinking I would stoop so low. Moving on.
As the Cardinals roll into Yankee Stadium this weekend they will see a very familiar face in the
Sigh. It’s an off-day for the Cardinals, and off-days suck. Forget ties, off-days are like kissing your sister, and my sister uses way too much tongue.
The worst thing about off-days is that I suddenly feel lost in life, wondering what I’m going to do with the 3, or if you’re
To paraphrase Harry Dunn in regards to the Cardinals, Just when I thought you couldn't POSSIBLY get any worse, you go and play a game like that...and TOTALLY REDEEM--wait, never mind.

Baseball's opening night is near. But what it will bring? Well, I can tell you exactly how it will unfold, for last night I had a vision that was both clear and true. Shall we begin?

‘Tis the 2nd of April in the year 2017; the
One of the most underrated positions in baseball is the role of backup catcher. This role is growing ever more important in the MLB as fewer and fewer catchers start more than 120 games season. In 2016, Yadier Molina was the only catcher in baseball to start over 140 games,
When Michael Wacha burst onto the scene in 2013, it was fair to assume that every St. Louis Cardinals fan had fallen in love. Women wanted him, men wanted to be him. He kept outdoing himself. A near no-no against Washington in his final start (thanks Pete Kozma) and then
