A fix for the All-Star Game and a Redbird great

Gateway icon

St. Louis sure loves its baseball. So it's fitting that the game's best player dons a Cardinals jersey. Albert Pujols, a legitimate Triple Crown threat, carries the torch once held by Redbird greats, Scott Miller says. Story

Not same ol' Game

The Midsummer Classic matters less. Sadly, representing the AL and NL is becoming extinct for both players and fans, Danny Knobler says. The All-Star Game is broken. Luckily, Larry Dobrow is here with the solution.

Hunting for votes

Torii Hunter needs your help. Brad Hawpe, too. They deserve to start in the All-Star Game, but need more votes, Danny Knobler says. Mark DeRosa gives Albert Pujols and St. Louis a big boost, Scott Miller says.

Cards acquire DeRosa and soccer in the U.S.

Hitting the Mark

Albert Pujols needed some help in the lineup and the Cardinals front office obliged by trading for Mark DeRosa, Scott Miller says in Weekend Buzz. In Look Ahead, Danny Knobler says Torii Hunter needs your help.

Not quite there yet

The U.S. takes a 2-0 lead over favored Brazil in the Confederations Cup finals, then allows it to slip away in the second half and loses 3-2. Mike Freeman says it's another false alarm for soccer's arrival in the USA.

Can't rain on his parade

Nineteen-year-old Joey Logano takes the top spot in the rain-shortened New Hampshire 301, becoming the youngest winner in Cup history. But stay focused because the Chase field is all but set, Pete Pistone says.
