It's easy to get your daily dose of Cardinals baseball when you live within driving distance of Busch Stadium. But for those who don't call the 63102 area code home, and even for those who do, twitter is a go-to resource for in-game updates and the latest breaking news on the Redbirds.
Here are 11 accounts every die-hard Cardinals fan should follow for the complete experience!
Michael Wacha (@MichaelWacha)
Following baseball’s rising superstar pitcher is a treat. Not only does he provide a player’s perspective on the cities the club travels to, but he also tweets his take on other big happenings in the sports world.
24-21 broncos win. Who does everyone have?!

Jon Jay (@jonjayU) #HighSockSunday. For that reason alone, Jay should be followed by every Cardinals fan. But in addition, the outfielder interacts a good amount with other baseball players on twitter, and the exchanges can be quite entertaining.

Yadier Molina (@Yadimolina04)
The best catcher in the game requires your follow. Molina’s tweets appeal especially to the bilingual crowd, as he usually tweets in both English and Spanish. But the most important reason to follow Yadi is to be reminded just how personable some athletes are.
bn dia a todos mi gente bendiciones!! good day people!!

Derrick Goold (@dgoold) Goold is the premiere breaker-of-St.Louis-Cardinal news. You’ll see the most important team updates on his twitter feed before seeing it on the TV. The lead Cardinals writer for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Goold also provides links to meaningful articles and takes the time to communicate with fans.
Matheny says if Kelly's absence is extended, team will then consider Martinez. Would take a piggyback start to get him ready. #cardinals — Derrick Goold (@dgoold) April 17, 2014
Larry Underwood (@lau56)
A Cardinals historian, Underwood is worth following for his interesting bits of information you didn’t think you needed to know until you do. He also provides his own, unshackled opinions of what’s happening in the game, so he is an essential follow for the Cardinals faithful.
#StlCards (9-5) have outscored opponents by only 9 runs this year. 2013: After 14 games they had a 28 run advantage but were only 8-6. #FYI

Joe Strauss (@JoeStrauss) Be warned, Strauss tweets a lot. But you will love him for it. A sports columnist, Strauss strikes the perfect balance between providing insightful humor along with information vital to knowing where the Cards stand.
Lance Lynn. Winner. Explain and discuss. — Joe Strauss (@JoeStrauss) April 15, 2014
The Birds On The Bat (@birdsonthebat13)
The perfect account to follow for a fan’s perspective on the game. This account does an avid job providing in-game updates for those who are unable to watch, as well as asking fans their opinions on the team. It’s as close as you’ll get to a discussion forum on twitter.
When will other teams learn, DON'T RUN ON YADI! #BestCatcherInTheGame

Total Cardinals Move (@Total_CardsMove)
This account says out loud the things that are on the mind of every Cardinals fan, and with no restraint. It’s humorous, it’s provocative, and it’s worth your follow. Cubs fans…you’ve been warned.
If you're a Cubs fan, I feel bad for you son. They've got 99 problems...and winning is all of them.

Sign Guy (@STLCardsSignGuy) Perfectly off-kilter in the most spontaneous of ways. Sign Guy is the essential non-sequitor for any Cardinals fan on twitter.
