For the first time in their 139 year history, the St. Louis Cardinals have won 15 games in a row.

C-Dawg2_0

This team's ability to swoop in out of nowhere and be sitting pretty in the WC spot is incredible


Smellmyhand

They put 'card' right in the name. What do you expect us to do?

WILD CARDS BITCHES! YEEEEEEE HAAAAAAAWWWW


lava172

I was annoyed by it at first but now? A team this hot going against the Dodgers in a 1 game playoff? SIGN ME THE FUCK UP


ImamSarazen

Give Schildt credit, attempting to make the playoffs by not losing any more games has been a brilliant strategy.


m48a5_patton

"I'll try not losing. That's a neat trick!"


Mpuls37

"Yippeeeee!"

It's the Happy Gilmore strategy of "that was so much easier than putting, I should just try to get the ball in one shot every time."


PierreEscargone

Damn, why didn’t the padres and mets think of that


DelverOfSqueakwets

The revered strategy of "don't lose" has won at least the last 30 world series

15 days ago, the Cards had a 5% chance of making the playoffs. 18 days ago, it was 2.8%. Today, it's about 99.8%.


Lofskrif

It works 100% of the time 5% of the time


Pnflkc3

it’s made with bits of real panther, so you know it’s good.


laborfriendly

Wife wanted to make a bet back when it was bleak. I said no. Will never hear the end of it.


mrEcks42

Just put 10 bucks on winning the series at the start of the season. You dont really lose if they do but the payoff is massive.


real_sophon

This is starting to get out of hand.


Green-Way94

Mines in my hand firmly!

Viss90

Some people's mood is affected by the seasons. Mine is affected by how good the Cardinals are doing, and fuck am I happy.


IndianaBeachCrow

Now there are fifteen of them!


MasticatedJesus

And to think, this all started on September 11, just after Nick Castellanos hit a fly ball deep to left field for a home run to make it a 4-0 ballgame.


brittttttt

Oh shit is that really when the run started? I was at that game!


Challenger1388

So was my brother lol


brittttttt

It was a great game!


rcoberle_54

All started on 9/11 when we had 69 losses. How can you not be romantic about baseball?

EyeHaveNoBanana

Wtf was Bader doing? Should’ve never tried for two, somehow makes it under the tag. Notices the pitcher, rattled from the single that became an inexplicable double, isn’t paying attention to him, and decides to stroll on to third like he’s heading out to grab the paper, then heads home on a wild pitch and, being clearly dead to rights, wiggles his foot to avoid the tag like he’s some kind of baseball version of Neo. It’s devil magic in full force.

Has been for like 3 weeks now. We have all accepted the fate that the Giants and Dodgers are battling to see who can lose to you guys first.

GearsofTed14

I’m happy for Arenado. For a while there, it was looking like he got traded from the Rockies to the Rockies


RustyKarma076

He got a taste of Cardinals 2nd half baseball

Let’s hope he gets a taste of traditional Cardinals vs Dodgers playoff baseball, rather than Cardinals vs Giants playoff baseball

Moneyball 2: Devilball


ModernLOCKE

Everybody is saying this is because of “Devil Magic”, the truth is they got to 69 losses and thought it was funny so they decided to keep it there. Nice.


scottzee

During this winning streak, Wainwright got his 2,000th career strikeout on the 69th pitch of the game. Nice!


joeltheconner

Nice


bigtomhanks

Everyone should be afraid of this team right now.


allballs_and_noshaft

I’m afraid of them. I check under my bed for O’Neill every night. Haven’t found him yet but sometimes I see Nootbaar


dunk_omatic

Everything was pretty normal until Sosa hit that ump in the face with a throw to first on 9/13. ​ We appreciate the blood sacrifice.


TheRiceHatReaper

Blood of an umpire, the most important of ritual components


artscyents

got a clip? i missed this edit: [found it](https://youtu.be/sAhLUHpCDes)


dunk_omatic

Thanks for linking the clip! It's worth noting that Sosa's throw, had it not been stopped by this poor ump's face, would have been an error allowing at least a double. That inning's momentum could totally change with a runner on 2nd. For my money, this is 100% the moment we entered the good timeline. Thanks again, ump!


Happaay

If I had a dollar for every game the Cards have won in a row, I would almost have as much money as the O’s are spending on payroll

toomanyplants314

IF YOU’RE IN LINE FOR THE WILD CARD RIGHT NOW STAY IN LINE


CricketIsBestSport

Alright this is kinda a dumb thing to say but I’m super excited about the cardinals cuz I lived in STL for years and they’re my second favorite team but what sucks is that all my friends from STL hate baseball and my friends that like baseball don’t care about the cardinals so I’m super excited but also kinda sad that I have no one to be excited with so I just want to say I’m super excited and this is really cool to witness


AquatikJustice

Sounds like you need to be making your way down to Busch for 1 of the 6 remaining home games to make some new friends.


Salesman89

What the hell part of St. Louis did you live in? Do you know what high-school these people went to?


westonenterprises

This guy St. Louiss


alfredhelix

Alright, I've been living in STL for 2 years now, and I gotta ask - what's with the high school thing? I've never been in a city where people were so obsessed with which high school you went to.


MidWest_Surfer

It’s kind of an in thing. It’s a really easy way to do 1 of 2 things. 1, to see if you grew up with money or not. And 2, to see what kind of social circle you were/are in, if you have common friends.


artscyents

come to r/cardinals, you are family now. help us summon Satan and exorcise Ryan Kelly from our domain


AreYouAJedi

Congrats bird bros


StrugglingSoprano

Bird vs bird WS pls


thecarrot78

I’m a much bigger fan of the “fuck the cubs” WS matchup, tbh


umbrellaguns

All you AL teams not named the Yankees, Red Sox, or Astros are cool by my book, honestly.


AzariasDaGod

Idk finally getting one against the red Sox would be the cherry on top for this run.


werd516

I thought we used that Uno reverse on a Stanley Cup?


clarkedaddy

It was actually a draw 2. This is the second card.

Rangers fans won’t like that.

cardinals1392

Devil magic is never late, nor is it early. It arrives precisely when it means to


Brewdrizy

Alright then who’s Gandalf?


gotsnowart

Obviously it's Waino. Tyler O'Neill, Harrison Bader, Tommy Edman and Lars Nootbaar are the hobbits.

Almost as nice as winning the Stanley Cup on the road.


mtaylor808

But could you imagine the atmosphere if that was a home game for the first cup win in franchise history though


lofabreadpitt12

Lmao, motherfuckers were picking up traffic cones like the Stanley Cup and guzzling beer out of them in the streets that night. It was a blast.


SLJ061387

That's...disgusting 🤣


mike_rotch22

Man, I was at the watch party at Enterprise for game 7. Even just watching the scoreboard, it fucking FELT like it. I embraced so many strangers and I broke down and cried at the horn. I love the Cardinals. I will always treasure memories of 2006 and 2011. But that Cup win stands alone. To break the drought against Boston...words fail me.


Matthewmaes_314

Harrison bader could have sex with my wife and I would love her more.


RockemChalkemRobot

It was supposed to be a threesome, but he dodged you and slid in first.


DulceReport

The last two innings of this game featured a leadoff triple that didn't score, a 3-2-5-4-2-8-6 double play, and an RBI strikeout. Happ even launched the potential game winning run in the 9th if the cubs hadn't screwed up on the basepaths.


toftr

To screw up a potentially tying lead off triple because of a double run-down double play, only to give up 3 runs the next inning, is exactly why Devil Magic is real


Nocturne_Zombie

Our tongues are ripped, our necks are broken, and our lips are sponged, BUT THE 69'ING CONTINUES!!!

MTVChallengeFan

This St. Louis Cardinals run is reminding me of their 2011 September-October run. I'm getting nervous.


Burgerburgerfred

When people talk about how bullshit playoff % predictions metrics are I'm going to point to this situation with the Cardinals and the Padres. The 1% is literally this. Since September 11th the Cardinals are 15-0 and the Padres are 3-10. This is the type of thing that needs to happen for that 1% to actually pay off.


Siethron

I'm changing my phone number to 3254286


Onarax

Now we just need our 3-1-4 area code play to get involved.


sempercardinal57

I’m not saying Bader is the 2011 Rally squirrel. I’m just saying that nobody has ever seen Bader and the 2011 Rally squirrel at the same time. That’s all I’m saying


hundredjono

Harrison Bader and Lars Nootbaar are the most WWE sounding names I've ever heard in MLB


GrubFisher

Lars Nootbaar would be the Star Wars knockoff character


Monk_Philosophy

I’m not entirely sure, but judging by the front page I think the cards might have won a baseball game today

Thank God they went on their run now instead of august. We probably don’t win the division if that happens and have to play the dodgers in the wild card round.

Cardinals to the Dodgers: I’m not locked in the wild card with you, you’re locked in here with me

Talk about having even bigger stakes to win the West now. Dodgers and Giants will want to avoid the Cards in a one game playoff.

Dodgers traded for Scherzer and Turner at the trade deadline - a trade that has gone about as well as they could've possibly hoped for, only to still be under the Giants for the division lead and now staring at this massive train coming to obliterate them in the WC game.
