Pitchers Hit Eighth turns two

See what I did there?  A baseball pun?

Today marks the second birthday (or anniversary, however you look at it) of this humble little site.

In May 2008, I led things off with a post that really had nothing to do with the Cardinals – “Soriano = Zito?” – which is strangely being made to look pretty silly right now, as both Alfonso Soriano and Barry Zito are tearing it up for their respective clubs.  Still doesn’t make the umpteen expensive years left on their contracts any better, but I digress…

My real point is that I wish to express sincere gratitude to those who read every day, or every other day, or as often as we can get something new up for you to read.  Josh and Andrew have been a great help to me, both providing you folks reading with more to digest on a regular basis as well as some differing viewpoints that I hope make the site more “versatile” or “diverse” or pretty much “whatever folks will read.”

I am grateful for, and consider myself very lucky to have come across, the opportunities presented to me solely based upon my “work” here at the site.  Participating in interviews with Bill DeWitt III, Kyle McClellan, P.J. Walters, among others; participating in projects with other bloggers; being a member of the UCB and BBA; among other fun things this site has brought my way to numerous to name all of them here.

I appreciate the opportunity to interact with those reading as well as my fellow bloggers and other writers, whether here, on Twitter, Facebook, or some other medium.

This site has allowed me to further both my baseball knowledge, my math skills (ha!), and deepen my appreciation for, and love of, the Cardinals.

What I’m saying is thank you.  I’m going to keep on doing what I’m doing, hopefully continuing to improve as I hope I have over the two years previous, and hopefully you’ll keep reading.


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.

Congrats on your second year. The Cardinal blogosphere would be a much weaker place without your contributions.
