I have fantastic news for Peoria baseball fans:
The Peoria Chiefs and St. Louis Cardinals have announced that the two clubs have reached a four-year PDC agreement which reunites the former affiliation partners. The Chiefs were a Cardinals affiliate from 1995 to 2004 making the playoffs four times and winning their lone Midwest League Championship in 2002. The two organizations will hold a press conference on the agreement on Tuesday, September 25 at Peoria Chiefs Stadium. Details of the press conference, including the start time, will follow later in the week.
“This is a great day for baseball in Peoria and Central Illinois,” said Chiefs President Rocky Vonachen. “We are thrilled to bring the color red back to the ballpark with one of the greatest organizations and fan bases in baseball. We hope that with all the great young talent the Cardinals have produced the last few seasons to bring another MWL Championship to Peoria as they continue to bring World Series trophies to St. Louis.”

CARDINALS WIN! CARDINALS WIN! CARDINALS WIN!
Congratulations to the St. Louis Cardinals on their 11th World Series victory!
The St. Louis Cardinals clinched the National League Wild Card Wednesday night and will be going to the post-season. I’ve written before about my disdain for the Wild Card system that Major League Baseball has been using since 1995.
Naturally, the question I get asked often is whether I’ll be rooting for the Cardinals [...]
The Dodgers deserved to win the National League Division Series. They simply played better baseball than the Cardinals. They had better pitching, clutch hitting, and much better fielding. These were all things that the Cardinals had about a month ago; I wonder where that team went? After the Cardinals clinched the Central Division title, [...]
Congratulations to the St. Louis Cardinals: 2009 National League Central Division Champions
The Cardinals defeated the Colorado Rockies tonight, 6-3. It is now a mathematical certainty that the Cardinals will end the season in first place and head into the postseason. Break out the champagne!! The National League Division Series begins October [...]
Answer: The St. Louis Cardinals
Yep. They’ve been tied for first place with the Los Angeles Dodgers for a while, but that changed Wednesday. The Cardinals completed a sweep of the Milwaukee Brewers Wednesday afternoon, and the Dodgers lost to the Arizona Diamondbacks the same evening. That puts the Cardinals (84-57) a game [...]
Hello, everyone. I’ve been in Chicago the past couple of days. Did I miss anything while I was gone?
Of course, when I say I was “in Chicago,” what I really mean is, I was in the northwest suburbs — Elk Grove Village, to be exact. I went up for some work-related training.

Oh how I wish all Cards/Cubs series would have such a perfect outcome!
Baseball season started again this week. That’s right — the boys of summer are back!
Whitey’s recently got new high-definition televisions, too. That will make watching the Cardinals go to the World Series this year all the better. Do you realize the last time the Cardinals won the World Series was 2006? That’s three [...]
Last night, the Philadelphia Phillies won the World Series for the second time in their 126-year franchise history by beating the Tampa Bay Rays 4-3. The game actually started Monday night, but ended up getting suspended in the middle of the sixth inning due to rain. The Phillies beat the Rays four games to [...]
