The #stlcards are nearing the end of Summer Camp, with three pitchers arriving, but perhaps too late for Opening Day. Roster and role decisions are just ahead. Our history feature highlights the five MLB All-Star Games played in St. Louis. (free) https://t.co/hJKuIxcQLI pic.twitter.com/3FSQcouQay

Marilyn…. enjoy the updates. The history of All-Star games in St. Louis provided little excitement for the home town partisans. I’m not a fan of AS games… they stop the season which is a downer for me.
I remember as a kid being very excited about those games…. matching my baseball cards with the rosters. the years of two AS games a season were special times. I didn’t know how or why the players were selected… and didn’t care. Now with the fan voting it seems less authentic.
Anyway… I wish that you would do an article on the ’63 AS game. The Cards had the entire starting infield. What a sight. White-Javier-Groat-Boyer, +Musial as a reserve. The reserves for the National League
were a better bunch than the starters. Perennial All-Stars…. Torre-Cepeda-Mazeroski-Santo-Wills-Musial-Clemente-McCovey-Snider-Drysdale-Koufax-Marichal, plus Aaron and Mays as starters… all in the same dugout. Can you imagine that. ps N.L. won.July 27, 2020 at 8:55 am #133799
The #stlcards won their first series behind strong starts by Jack Flaherty and Adam Wainwright and head out on a three-city road trip. Our history feature highlights a date, July 22, on which Stan Musial went deep in five consecutive years. (free) https://t.co/jqtU6bOVUK pic.twitter.com/8N1X7RvQ5h

I think this is going to be more than a lost week for the Cardinals – more like a lost year.
With the short season everything is magnified.
Somehow the team blew COVID protocol and that is going to result in too many double headers on the back side of the schedule.
Schildt somehow pulled a rabbit out his hat last season but I think the rabbit is already in the stew pot for 2020.
Of course, this time last year at the beginning of August things looked pretty grim as well….. but I don’t think lightning strikes twice.August 5, 2020 at 7:54 am #134521bccranParticipantPaid - Annual
If our pitching holds up, we have a shot. Anxious to see how Ponce, Gomber, Helsley,
Reyes, Cabrera, Woodford, etc. do. Some of the younger guns.
