In Busch Stadium's first full capacity game since 2019, the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Miami Marlins 4-2. Adam Wainwright continues to impress at home and he shows us how high his character is postgame. Tyler O'Neill drove in the go-ahead run in the 8th. His season has been a solid one, and one that Cardinal fans should be happy to see after havi…
 
Seems like the Cardinals have hit rock bottom. They have been swept in a two game set by the Detroit Tigers. Everything that could have gone this season has gone wrong; pitching has gotten hurt and underperformed, offense has struggled, defense has been iffy and management (both field-level and above) has not been good. Lucas evaluates the team aft…
 
This week could be a turning point for the St. Louis Cardinals as they play the Tigers and the Pirates; two of the worst teams in baseball. Lucas goes in depth into the pitching matchups for the Tiger series, looking at what has changed for Johan Oviedo and why John Gant has cause for concern. The Tigers might have a better offense than a "normal" …
 
Another day, another ugly series. Outside of game one of the doubleheader Sunday, the Cardinals offense did not hit over the weekend, losing 4-0, 9-1 and 1-0 to the Atlanta Braves. Is this offense just in a rut or is this just who they are? It's hard to rely on pitching when so much of rotation is a question mark. Lucas talks about what went wrong …
 
On this episode of the CSZ Podcast brought to you by All-America pool & Supply, we come to you live from Four Pegs Beer Lounge! Our guys Jeremy, Shawn, Sam, Joey, Wes & Higgy talk about what's been going on in the land of the Cards the past few weeks. Today Higgy tried to take on the Greatest Challenge and we were joined by Four time University of …
 
The St. Louis Cardinals were no-hit for 6.1 innings last night and shutout, losing 4-0 to the Atlanta Braves. John Gant was not terrible, but he got literally zero run support so it didn't really matter what he did. The Cardinals signed two pitchers yesterday, Wade LeBlanc to the majors and Brandickson to the minors. These are not the kind of moves…
 
The Cardinals have swept the Miami Marlins for the second time in 2021. Has the season been magically fixed? No, but this is a nice step in the right direction. The Cardinals need to just take things one game at a time and start winning some series again. If KK Kim and Johan Oviedo pitch anywhere close to the way they pitched this week then this pi…
 
Paul Goldschmidt drove in both Cardinal runs in their 2-1 win over the Miami Marlins. To add icing to the cake, the second run came by way of a walk off home run. He is a key to this team if it wants to break out of this slump. KK Kim impressed in his return from the IL. Lucas also gives his take on MLB's memo and new rules in regards to pitchers u…
 
The struggles for the St. Louis Cardinals continue as they are swept by the Chicago Cubs. With two games being on national television, more and more people had the chance to see the Redbirds in their latest skid. They got outslugged on Friday, shutdown offensively on Saturday and out pitched on Sunday. Something has got to change ASAP if this team …
 
It's time to renew one of the biggest rivalries in sports. The St. Louis Cardinals are in Chicago for a three game series against the Chicago Cubs. Joe Kilgallon of Locked On Cubs joins the show to discuss this upcoming series. The Cubs have been playing great with a great bullpen and the former Cardinal Patrick Wisdom is playing out of his mind. T…
 
Adam Wainwright goes seven strong innings and Tyler O'Neill hits two home runs as the Cardinals win 8-2, ending their losing streak of six games. Wainwright is the definition of a stopper and is a breed we don't see too much of today. O'Neill's capability of impacting the game on both sides of the ball in so many ways is something we need to apprec…
 
For the 200th time, Lucas is talking Cardinal baseball with you. Sadly, it comes during a rough stretch for the Redbirds. It might be only June, but should Mike Shildt or his staff be on the hot seat? Carlos Martinez blew up again and has proven to be too unreliable at the Major League level. This offense is in a rut, but hopefully they can score a…
 
A new day and a new series for the St. Louis Cardinals. After their first off day in two-plus weeks, St. Louis welcomes the Cleveland Indians into town for a quick two-game set. This month still looks hopeful for the Cardinals if they can turn it around now. Lucas takes a deep dive into the pitching matchups for today and tomorrow, giving his predi…
 
The St. Louis Cardinals have lost five in a row and are now just two games above .500. For the first time since May of 1990, the Cincinnati Reds have a four-game sweep of the Cardinals in St. Louis. Mike Shildt says he is not worried, but should he be? We are getting in to the middle portion of the schedule and the Cardinals are not in a place they…
 
Do managers make or break winning/losing games? Not always, but Mike Shildt probably made a mistake in yesterday's 4-2 loss to the Cincinnati Reds. Hindsight is always 20/20, but even in real time the 9th inning had some questionable decisions. Yesterday's game saw minimal positives; Adam Wainwright's performance and the incredible relay from Dylan…
 
Replacing a coaching legend & who's shoes are the biggest, a big hockey hit, Dave SInykin talks Aaron Rodgers & Packers and Jeff Hughes on Justin Fields and the Bears, plus Omaha Biliew is leaving Waukee
 
The Cardinals played an ugly finale against the LA Dodgers last night. Carlos Martinez was historically bad, only recording two outs and surrendering 10 runs. What did we learn from this game? The Cardinals need a starter, Carlos Martinez still isn't reliable and the Cardinals need to get healthy. Lucas talks about the few positives from this game,…
 
Baseball rarely has just one hero, but Tyler O'Neill did his best Superman impression last night. He had two hits, a key stolen base and a remarkable game-ending (and gave-saving) catch. Dylan Carlson and Tommy Edman also added sparkling defensive gems in the sixth to help get the Cardinals out of a jam. John Gant needed every help from his defense…
 
The St. Louis Cardinals fell to the Los Angeles Dodgers yesterday by the final of 9-4. Chris Taylor put together an at-bat for the ages to sink St. Louis. The bullpen is showing signs of wear and tear, despite it's only June 1. Jack Flaherty leaving due to hurting himself at the plate, which is reason enough for Lucas to want the DH in the NL. This…
