Cardinals' News at the ST. Louis Post-Dispatch:

The Sports section for the only newspaper in town.

Redbird Nation Cardinals Weblog:

Brian Gunn runs this unbelievably excellent weblog concentrating on my beloved Cardinals. If half the dumb*ssed sportswriters (cough...Phil Rogers...cough) who hate the Cardinals for some reason would read Brian's site, I wouldn't have to write emails to these guys pointing out obvious inaccuracies and flaws in their reasoning.

St. Louis Cardinals Official Site:

This is the Cardinals official site at

The Cardinals' Birdhouse:

Ray Mileur and Brian Walton run this Cards' fansite, and it is very well done.

Baseball Prospectus:

Baseball Prospectus is a collection of statheads who love to try to quantify nearly everything quantifiable in the game of baseball. These guys seem to have an anti-Tony LaRussa (and hence anti-Cardinals) stance, but I enjoy reading their annual preview book and also some of the things at their website.


The Baseball-Reference website gives fans an easily accessible place online to look up stats from years past.

Society For American Baseball research:

What a cool group. If I weren't so interested in so many other things, I'd have a membership in this group. Their mission statement is to foster the study of baseball, past, present, and future.


Retrosheet was founded in 1989 for the purpose of computerizing play-by-play accounts of as many pre-1984 major league games as possible.

Diamond Mind Baseball:

Diamond Mind Baseball is a text-based ultra-realistic simulation of each season of baseball. I give them credit as the only major forecaster to predict the Cardinals would finish first in 2004.
