Friday Night Fever Game of the Week Preview
Posted on 30 August 2018 at 8:13pm
Friday Night Fever's game of the week features the Hickman Kewpies at home versus the Helias Crusaders. Both teams are 1-0 and coming off nail-biting road wins in which their offenses did just enough to squeak out a victory.
While both teams have proven that they can score at high levels, the big question is which team's defense will step up and get the key stops when it matters most. The Kewpies were able to limit a talented Pattonville offense to just 20 points whereas The Crusaders struggled to keep the Hannibal Pirates off the board in their last matchup. Fortunately, their offense was able to bail them out, notching 35 points which proved to be just enough for Helias. If the Helias defense can step up and get stops, they could make life really difficult for Hickman.

No Longer the Interim, Shildt is Here to Stay
Posted on 28 August 2018 at 11:38pm
ST. LOUIS - Mike Shildt. It's a name that you would have to be living under a rock not to know in the St. Louis Cardinals fanbase, and one becoming more and more well-known throughout baseball fans in general. It's a name that is also here to stay for the foreseeable future, as the Cardinals have decided to remove the interim tag from his managerial title. Shildt put pen to paper on a three-year contract Tuesday, according to Bleacher Report.
This comes after a string of success that has the Cardinals back in the driver's seat for a wild card spot, sitting a half game up on Milwaukee for home field advantage, and only 4.5 back from Chicago for the division. The positive run comes after the team was left just a game over five-hundred and a distant third place in the NL Central upon the firing of Mike Matheny. They were in danger of missing the playoffs for the third consecutive season for the first time since 1997-99. For a franchise with the success the Cards have had over the last decade and a half or so, that is crisis-worthy.
