The St. Louis Cardinals have won 14 games in a row
By - 33Carter
I remember reading [this comment](https://www.reddit.com/r/baseball/comments/p93l6v/the_cincinnati_reds_are_in_sole_possession_of_the/h9v2ens/) and going, you know what that will probably actually happen. And here we are
I like u/chiefdoomslayer's response:
"If you speak this into existence there are going to be some very angry fanbases coming your direction."
I was looking for this comment thread all day lmao. Fucking devil magic pissing everyone off all over again lol
16 hits, 8 of them home runs, in a 7 inning game.
All thanks to the bombshell deadline pickups of Jon Lester and JA Happ
It's been repeated so many times that it's lost some of its punch, but holy fucking shit *devil magic*
Remember when they picked up mark czep....zhepchin...cshep....scrabble?
Gave Rasmus, got Dotel, Edwin Jackson and scrabble who were all clutch for us!
Rzepczynski /zepp-CHIN-shee/ 🙂
Yeah that's what I'd assume the pronunciation would be after a quick read, simple really
Blue Jays legend JA Happ
Phillies legend JA Happ.
The Twins died at the hands of Happ and his 6.00 ERA so the Cards could thrive
This is absolutely fucking terrifying.
Bro me too. If we dont squeeze out the division champs, I'm afraid for what might happen :|
Just the yearly “final form” the cardinals take before mudering other teams in the playoffs.
For real they are LETHAL in a 5/7 game series
Weird way to spell “fun”
It's the Queen's English spelling
Weird. I'm having a blast.
Cant relate lmao
Guys I dont think Arenado is going to opt out.
Nah man he doesn't look like he's having fun out there I think he wants to test the market
They may never lose again
We are 100-54 and I'm terrified that our postseason will be over after one game.
Get me off this train
Don't worry I think you'll get to have 3 games this year
The winning will continue until morale improves.
oh, well in that case i'm miserable
I'm miserable too
And I'm depressed as heck, so keep them coming.
I'm as hard as Tyler O'neill's biceps in an icestorm.
That's fucking hard.
Our win streak is almost as big as his ass
#D U M P T R U C K
TIL winning streaks can be measured in asses
We will use any unit of measurement except the metric system
Cardinals legend Jon Lester pitching tomorrow to get the record
Against his formal team. Love it.
I dunno I think this cubs team is more casual.
I would agree. Nerdy casual
He'll knock their top hats right off
The St. Louis Cardinals have won 14 games in a row *so far.*
Can you guys please send us some of your devil magic
If you agree to lose the World Series to us
Us getting our first World Series appearance when we were only supposed to win like 72 games this year? Idc if you guys swept us and had a +78 run differential.
This is the way, and I'm genuinely rooting for you guys.
You guys are alright!
Also, never forget where you got Tyler O’Neill from.
As long as you never forget where you got Marco Gonzales from <3
Mariners fans 🤝 Cardinals fans
Bro… this hurts
If it makes you feel better, science has yet to confirm whether or not TLR is Devil Magic Patient Zero.
We can only hope it rubbed off on him
All of my salt will be used during my ugly crying if we make the WC game, no way to be upset no matter what happens
Ha! Jokes on you!!! I would have agreed to just make and win a Wild Card game.
This is a good deal. You should take it Mariners bro
We have no control over it. The Devil chooses who he chooses.
I for one am partying like it’s 1935. Prohibition is over bitches.
Couldn’t agree more, whitetrashcumdump
Holy shit I'm gonna Noot
Oh god, I've seen this movie before and I did *not* like how it ended.
In 2011 I did
Ryan Howard didn't :(
Our tongues are cramped, our necks are stiff, and our lips are pruned, BUT THE 69'ING CONTINUES!!!
When is a day off for these guys, good lord they have played a fucking TON of baseball.
Rest is for teams who lose
Part of the deal with Satan was that taking a rest day returns them to their true forms.
GOOD FOR THEM
I was here
It blows my mind that we're seeing franchise history in the making after the performance we put up in June.
5 more wins in this streak than in the entire month of June. Devil magic is real.
>5 more wins in this streak than in the entire month of June.
Jesus fuck, was it ***that*** bad?
Also, holy Jesus fuck what's going on
We got swept by both the Reds (4 game series) and the Cubs in June. It was THAT bad.
I remember thinking that the Cards were dead in the water and the Cubs were the team to beat in the central in June. God I envy that level of ignorance about the rest of the season
Why don’t other teams win 14 in a row when they are almost eliminated from playoff contention. Idk just seems like something other teams should try to do.
You are cardinaling correctly
St. Louis Blues also tied (actually broke) a franchise record on their cup run in 2019…
It’s decided then. Redbirds are your 2021 World Series champions.
I will get so incredibly blackout drunk if this happens.
Is this Brett Hull's alt account?
Brett Hull gets blackout drunk regardless of it happens or not.
Someone pinch me
Fuck that. If I'm dreaming, don't wake me up till November.
Tying the franchise record, set in 1935
I don't know what to do with my hands
This was genuinely the worst game i think ive ever seen. I seriously dont think I've ever been so fucking frustrated watching a baseball game before.
Just so fucking sad. Cubs absolutely murdered every single ball they hit in the 7th but they all went straight to an outfielder. And the was the story of the whole fucking game. Cubs hit the fuck out of a ball but it either dies out at the warning track or goes straight to Harrison fucking Bader. Just fucking miserable god fucking damn FUCK. Stupid Cardinals and their dumb fucking devil magic.
Copy pasta salad :)
We just….. we do this all the time man. We get a good team, play good, can’t beat the Cardinals.
Cardinals got two 65 year old pitchers, a 50 year old catcher, a bunch of hobbit sized speed freaks and they just mix it all together in some blood ritual and they’re beating our fucking doors off.
Best description of the team I’ve seen yet.
Oh nice twist on a classic
This is a keeper
JA happ really going to the postseason eh?
He's pretty good, thanks for giving him to us.
Nothing makes sense anymore. Noot hits 2 hrs. Jack doesnt get out of the first. Longest winning streak in franchise history. What the fuck?
To be fair Jack was being limited to less than 20 pitches. They basically had him make a rehab start for the major league team in the middle of a double header during a 13(14) game win streak.
That is such house money they’re playing with, I love it
Schildt right now: fuck it, let’s try that too
Jack didn't surprise me, honestly. He was only gonna throw 15-20 pitches anyway, and he's coming off a shoulder injury. His slider looked nasty, but his fastball had nothing on it. Once he's back at 100% and is able to put a bit more into the fastball, it'll set up his slider and he'll be good as new. Tonight though, the Cubs realized very quickly that the only pitch he had working was the slider, so they weren't fooled at all.
Every night before I go to sleep I have my roommate make sure Tyler O’Neill isn’t hiding underneath my bed
You don't want Bro'Neill under your bed??
Well you see I'm a Mets fan and he sort of slaughtered us
He doesn't mind
#TIED FOR THE LONGEST STREAK IN FRANCHISE HISTORY
This team has become something else.
I hate them.
I hate how consistently fucking good they are. They always, always find a way to get into the playoffs and compete. They have that same aura The Steelers carry with them.
My grandpa was the biggest Cardinals fan a person could possibly be and he died this year. Really wish he was here to see this! It's so fun to be a fan right now, feels like anything is possible.
Sorry to hear that, my dad was too and he died shortly before the 2011 World Series run, he’s all I could think of when they won
My grandpa died in 2006 right before the playoffs. It still amazes me to this day, because one of the last things he said before he died was that the Cardinals were going to win the world series. It was one of the only things he said that was coherent. He was a lifetime cardinals fan that was passed down to my dad and my family.
Ties the franchise record from 1935
Team included Frankie Frisch, Joe Medwick, and Dizzy and Daffy Dean
You forgot Pepper Martin, Ripper Collins, and Spud Davis.
Lots of great old time baseball names on that team.
The gas house gang was never this hot 🔥🔥🔥🔥
Imagine winning only 13 games in a row couldn't be me
This shit stops tomorrow. Lester is a plant for this very reason.
Ah fuck, who am I kidding. End me.
We will ride eternal, shiny and chrome!
Is that good?
14 wins in a row are better than 13 wins in a row, so yes.
I dream of the Dodgers losing to the Cardinals in the NL Wild Card game.
That’s 3 PPI on the day btw. 2 for Goldschmidt and 1 for DeJong.
I have concerns
I honestly have no idea what the fuck is happening.
THOUGHT ABOUT CONSULTING PHYSICIAN AFTER BEING HARD FOR 14 DAYS..DON’T WANT TO BREAK STREAK THOUGH SO I’LL CONTINUE ON
As a Cardinals fan, I would like to thank our pitching coach, Greg Maddux, for coaching the pitching. Had he not coached the pitching, the pitching would have been uncoached. And as we all know, uncoached pitching can be worse than coached pitching. So, I am thankful that Greg has been there all year so that the pitching could have a coach.
Ever since I joined the bandwagon the Cardinals are undefeated
420 blaze it, 666 praise it, Namaste
You forgot 69 losses. let's leave it there
The blood sacrifices are working
This is pretty cool.
Beef man. Beef man good. Beef man make ball go far.
I know it happens a lot...but I never expected a portal to Hell to open from St. Louis in *this* year!
If the season was an extra week they'd probably end up hosting the wild card game.
Nah, if there was an extra week, they’d take the division.
Nah we’d be hosting a division series
I guess that's more realistic.
Magic number is currently 4
WE MAY NEVER LOSE AGAIN
Holy shit we might actually be good
Somebody pinch me.
Maybe the Dodgers and Giants should just team up for the Wild card Game to face us. If they, win they play each other, if we win, it's straight to the NLCS.
All jokes aside, could you imagine that team? It would basically be all-Star-level players from 1 to 9.
Yea, but they have to play against the Cardinals
I would not feel comfortable at all. It would just double Goldy and Arenado’s power.
It's October 6, 2021. The newly announced NL Mega-Card game is set to take place between the San Angeles Giodgers and the St. Louis Cardinals, a setup which Rob Manfred believes is certain to end in a crushing victory for California markets. On the mound is Walkvin Gausler, the result of Buehler and Gausman performing the fusion technique to raise their power exponentially. They warm up, throwing a changeup in triple digits. Matt Carpenter is trembling. It's already over. Or is it?
Shildt gives the nod to Tommy Edman, who performs the ritual. He pours a vial of blood collected nearly fifteen years ago onto a pentagram in the dugout. A dark, demonic rift opens in the fabric of reality, emitting an unholy, deafening screech. It's a risk, but it pays off. The rift closes, the summoning succeeds, and the last missing piece has arrived. Edman sits down and breathes, relieved he lived to see the outcome.
David Eckstein is confused. What's going on? He was just celebrating the World Series title with the guys, then everything went black, and now... he's in another dugout, surrounded by a new team. He doesn't recognize most of them, but amazingly, some he still does, and they know him. A nod from Yadi is all it takes for him to understand. His team needs him again. He's batting leadoff.
Play ball. Gausler readies his first pitch, then sees who's stepping in the box. *No. No, it can't be. This can't be happening. We did everything right, had everything going for us, how did it come to this?* Eckstein takes his warm-up swings while giving the pitcher a cold, deadly stare. The Giodgers' ace's heart keeps beating faster. He can't stop sweating. It's too much. He blacks out.
Walker Buehler wakes up in bed at home. He sighs. Thank God, it was all a dream. He sits up, and then he notices his pillowcase--it's covered in red birds. He gasps. He jumps out of bed, runs to the window and looks outside. It's not the LA skyline out there: It's St. Louis. He turns around. On the wall opposite him is a smug oil painting of Stan Musial. He looks down. He's wearing Cardinal boxers.
Desperate, he runs over to his desk and pulls out the world map. His worst fears have come true. They took everything. Every city, every country, every island, every ocean. It's all St. Louis now.
He falls to his knees, pressing his fists against his temples. He tries to scream, but he can't. Even his voice has been taken from him. He struggles in mute disbelief, but then his lips move on their own, his vocal cords activate, and his body declares the mantra that now governs the world:
"Let's go, Cardinals!"
#we may never lose again
NEVER GONNA STOP! #12IN21 BABAY
We've had an epic collapse but we wouldn't be able to keep up even with a 9-5 or 10-4 run in the same span.
You wouldn't be able to keep up unless you had a 14-0 run, which is preposterous.
You didn't sacrifice nearly enough goats.
Dodgers and Giants really fighting over 2 extra games of postseason revenue rn
The Cardinals beating the Cubs at Wrigley will never get old.
I am at a loss of words
# BREAK THE RECORD
WHO WANTS THAT 1WC SPOT
#Everybody gets a home run!!
Mr. Rickey would be proud...
i don't even know what is happening or how to process the extremes of this past month.
Devil magic is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural…
Congrats Cards. Someone's gotta have fun this season
Can I post tomorrow’s thread?
if you’re quick buckeroo
Fuck it dude, if the Cards manage to beat the Dodgers in the Wild Card game on top of having Nolan on their roster, I'm making them my NL team
How do I join the Cardinal cult? I need this devil magic in my life!
We meet in the basement at 7. Bring snacks.
When is the blood sacrifice? After snacks or before?
Please allow one hour of digestion after snacks before entering the blood pool.
You must consume one of these things (gooey butter desserts, toasted ravioli, Imos Pizza, or Ted Drewes) and constantly praise Yadi then you will be able to join our cult and feed into the Devil Magic
God has abandoned us
may the blessings of Mephistopheles be upon ye brothers and sisters, let the magic flow through you and into the Wild Card shall we be granted passage
It's that St. Louis magic.
I am absolutely terrified
