Five years ago this month, all was looking up in the world as far as I was concerned. My last deployment came to an end, and I overspent for a once-in-a-lifetime birthday present. The calendar now turns to March 2012, and again it appears that not much has changed for the Cardinals. They gave an [...]

As one of the strangest off-seasons in memory comes to an end, a reminder of just how great baseball can be presented itself at just the right time. The 2012 campaign will feature a very different look in St. Louis, and three Cardinal faithful are one step away from catching every inning of it. That [...]

Needing a good lift to get out of the cold-weather blues, I am looking forward to many things in the coming months. The crazy whirlwind of events since October has left many question marks, as yesterday’s great post here stated perfectly. The first and only good part of being stuck in a hotel away from [...]

Once the Cardinals found TLR’s replacement, the real mission for the next few months finally began. Building the 2012 roster will in a large part be determined by how a certain first base option chooses where to sign. Not to say the rest of the 40 man roster isn’t just as important, but the truth [...]

Dennis did a much better job describing the fun earlier right here, so I get the easy job! Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine getting to take part in something so cool as the CBA’s when this all started for me. I am blessed to get to work with a great pair of guys [...]

It is important to give a little more background as the entire experience that was the 2011 season finally starts to sink in for this Cards’ fan. Growing up in Iowa, two main topics surrounded my family every summer. Who was going to be happy all winter between the St. Louis and Chicago faithful? And [...]

Just when we thought the crazy part of the baseball year was over, St. Louis now has to fill two very large holes barely a week after celebrating WS Title #11. And for the first time, the thought of not having TLR scowling from the dugout still is hard to imagine. After the final out [...]
