Too many things are still floating through my head after last night’s magic and thankfully, I have that little distraction called work to get me right up to Game 7. No matter how many times this story started writing itself during the back and forth of possibly the greatest World Series finish, a Hollywood ending [...]

Two main points caught my attention right after Game 2 while the ending took more time to evaluate. The 2011 World Series is far from over, thanks in part to the huge play of Jaime Garcia and Allen Craig. Both of the young Cardinals introduced themselves to the rest of baseball on the largest stage [...]

Call it Puma Power if you like or maybe a Berkman Bomb is your preference. Either way the NL Comeback Player of the Year has made it all the way to the top again, this time ready to bring a title home to St. Louis. Home is fitting since the former Houston star and native Texan [...]

Evidently being the favorite just doesn’t suit the 2011 edition, so it is back to square one as far as these Cardinals are concerned. And as much as it pains me to write this, I wouldn’t want it any other way. St. Louis gets to go out with a bang, fitting since the opposite can [...]

What you see happening this week all over Cards’ sites brings back a lot of memories. The high hopes brought by St. Louis in 2009 left many feeling unfinished business after getting swept at this stage. All that makes this improbable run even more amazing to witness. For the crew here at PH8, we each [...]

Didn’t see that finish coming either, huh? And after this summer, any further need to gamble, skydive, or even ride coasters is forever muted. The Cardinals are winners in my book no matter what happens in October, but a couple of playoff gems by Chris Carpenter would help keep the playoff beard from going all [...]

So much for the storybook ending, but St. Louis can write a new finish to 2011 with the help of their long-time rivals. The Cubs travel to Busch for three of the most important games in recent memory with only one club feeling the heat. Chicago most recently dispatched the Brewers 2 out of 3 [...]

Hope everyone is enjoying the colder weather now that the dog days appear over and the playoff race still smolders away. On another key front, today is one of my all time favorites for the United Cardinal Bloggers. While normally this would be a week-long process for me, I am choosing to take a simple [...]

With the toughest August in memory over, it brought us that much closer to Albertpalooza. No matter what happens in the next three weeks to the Cardinals, even a miracle run to the playoffs will bring the inevitable. Nick alluded to it earlier on Twitter and the upcoming frenzy will have major repercussions not only in St. [...]

For those who may not know, the recent tornado passed right through where I now call home. Joplin may never resemble the same area, but plenty of groups are going out of their way to make a difference. Add the Cardinals to this impressive list after today’s press conference and support with a major announcement. [...]
