Redbird Tweets added to PHE

I’ve realized that very often, I have short little thoughts, almost stream-of-consciousness stuff usually – other times I just want to be able to have some of the latest and greatest news tidbits available on the site.

I’ve been trying to come up with a way to incorporate these ‘quick hits’ into the site, and I believe I have found a good option.

You’ll notice in the right sidebar that I’ve linked to a Twitter account I’ve set up, using some code called Twitter Tools (Alex King is a genius, folks).  I can send out my quick thoughts and ideas via that medium, and they will be automatically updated on the site here.  I can do that from virtually anywhere, at any time.  I’m hoping it will be a good way to keep me connected to my Cardinal stream-of-consciousness.

I can’t guarantee that it will be a good addition, and I’d love your feedback.  For the time being, I’m anxious to see how this develops…

(P.S. – as for tonight’s game?  I don’t even want to talk about it, other than to say thank you Houston.)

Writing about the Cardinals and other loosely associated topics since 2008, I've grown tired of the April run-out only to disappoint Cardinal fans everywhere by mid-May. I do not believe in surrendering free outs.

Very nice! Good way to see up to date information without having to write a full post.

I did hear today that Waino is going to start Friday and that Pineiro is going to relieve him somewhere around 70 pitches or so. Guess we know who is going to the pen.

Well, I heard it explained as Pineiro “backing him up”.

My guess is that if Wainer goes 6 in 70 pitches, they’ll go straight to their ‘pen. Pineiro would probably then slide around to another start or assume a Brad Thompson-esque role.

Good news is that my original intent still could work – get Waino a start on Friday, sets him up to pitch against the Brewers on Wednesday on regular rest.
