Both St. Louis & Los Angeles audiences tuned out the Rams’ return

St. Louis is understandably bitter about the way the Rams franchise left for Los Angeles. Los Angeles, meanwhile, is full of Los Angeles sports fans. When the Rams played their first game since returning to the once-again home of L.A., both fanbases did what you’d expect them to do. Not care. The latest Paul Finebaum calls Michigan fans 'a whiny and...

Matt Holliday’s Absence Not Inconsequential for St. Louis

We don’t talk much about Matt Holliday these days. It’s been awhile since he was one of the best players in baseball. Probably the last time you could have honestly made that claim was in 2014, when his 132 wRC+ was 28th-best in the game. However, with the news that Holliday has probably succumbed to his thumb injury for the rest of the season, I thought we would take a minute...

St. Louis Cardinals: The Jedd Gyorko trade has been a steal

Last December the St. Louis Cardinals traded outfielder Jon Jay for infielder Jedd Gyorko. Originally, Gyorko was supposed to be a backup to Kolten Wong and get starts against left handed pitchers.
