The St. Louis Cardinals are set to play the Pittsburgh Pirates in Williamsport, Pennsylvania this Sunday. Lance Lynn and Randal Grichuk are among the Cardinals to have already played in Williamsport back in their LLWS days.

It should be a battle as the Cardinals look to gain 1.5 games on the Cubs in the NL Central while the Pirates role falls somewhere between spoiler and contention themselves at 5.5 games back.

Early in the week it looked like the St. Louis Cardinals might have turned around their fate thanks to some Instagram based controversy. Without having to can their coach. Not to mention taking 5 of 7 against the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks. Two teams they’re chasing for the wildcard.

And after Rosenthal’s escape artist 6-out save against the Diamondback Friday it looked like maybe the Cardinals would turn a corner and reach .500 and maybe pass it. Continue reading “Notes From the Pine: Throwing Shade”

Game 063: Technical Difficulties

The PineCast is back and we’re shaking the cobwebs off in our first episode in months. Tim went to the Winter Classic. The Cardinals signed Dexter Fowler. Jeff Fisher even got fired and we forgot to mention it! But don’t worry, there are plenty of other St. Louis Cardinals and St. Louis Blues hot takes to go around.

Guide to Picking a New NFL Team

With the NFL season fast approaching, it’s time for St. Louis fans to pick a new NFL team to follow for the 2016-17 season. The Rams are gone along with their mustachioed head coach Jeff “7 and 9” Fisher and their mustachioed turd of a person owner.

Really it was a team that was the shell of the Greatest Show on Turf for the last 10 years. They’ve moved to L.A. to chase dreams of making it big. Only to find out no one in L.A. cares about a football team that once went 15-65 over 5 years. They already aren’t getting the ratings Rams preseason games would get in St. Louis.

There is good news though. You get to start fresh. No longer are you forced to deal with sub-mediocrity. You get the chance to pick a team to root for over the upcoming 16+ games. That’s right. 16 plus. You could finally have a team that’s relevant for more than 16 games. A team that doesn’t shatter all hopes by winning in overtime in week 1 then following it up by losing to Washington in week 2 and literally lighting their own field on fire in week 31.

We know this is a tough decision, and that’s why we’ve put together this helpful guide so you can pick a new team from the 28 teams left out there once you remove the Rams and the Cleveland Browns from contention. Because no one is willingly rooting for the Browns. Not even Lebron. Continue reading “Guide to Picking a New NFL Team”

Lochte’d Up

On a brand new episode of the PineCast we break down the Olympics shenanigans of Ryan Lochte and co. Whether it’s winning Gold or possibly fabricating getting robbed at gun point. We’ll delve down into why. Plus the St. Louis Cardinals are on a 4 game winning streak. Is it because Jason finally hung his autographed Allen Craig bat. Probably not. But hung it he did. And Jeff Fisher doesn’t think he’ll go 7-9 again. We all have a good laugh at that. We’ve got all the sports and a healthy helping of pop culture on the newest episode of the PineCast.

Game 053: We’re Back!

It’s been a long and lonely road, but we’re back. We didn’t post a new podcast through the whole St. Louis Blues vs Dallas Stars series, partly out of fear of the jinx, partly out of laziness. But the Conference Finals are tied 1-1 and the Blues need the PineCast bump.

The St. Louis Cardinals are also sticking around .500, but we think they’ve got a few more winning streaks in them that losing streaks. Grab some (ear)buds and prepare yourself for a brand new episode of the PineCast!
