During the recent UCB Weekend in St. Louis, several of us in attendance had an opportunity to sit through a rather well-honed elevator pitch from the folks at Burton History Trees.  I usually don’t listen to a lot of details about business plans, business models, and product design, because my actual job involves far too [...]

MLB absolutely despises, detests, and hates Cardinal Nation.  Even that might not explain the completely irrational decision to schedule game 3 of the NLDS between the Cardinals and Nationals at 1:07 pm (ET) on Wednesday.  On MLB Network.  Maybe they are concerned about all the millions of baseball fans in the Czech Republic and Oman [...]

Jaime Garcia departed yesterday’s NLDS game after just 2 innings and 51 pitches.  Though he appeared to labor through those 2 innings, his command and control didn’t appear all that bad, and his velocity seemed normal.  He just seemed ineffective in giving up an earned run, 2 hits, and 3 walks.  It was not until [...]

As part of our membership in the United Cardinal Bloggers, we frequently participate in various projects throughout the year.  While the “Capture the Virtual Flag”, “Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock”, and the “Rhino in a Hula Hoop” projects aren’t our favorites, we go along with whatever our illustrious leader cooks up for us.  This month [...]

If you saw any baseball on this same day in 2011, you undoubtedly remember at least some sense of euphoria or bitter disappointment, or maybe even both simultaneously.  Game 162 for a good portion of the teams in MLB usually amounts to either one last opportunity to see prospects in game action or a chance [...]

Beyond the preponderance of a doubt, membership in new media’s blogosphere has its privileges.  Preferential treatment, increased levels of access, and recognition by a team that we cover translate to a higher order of unique content available on this blog.  As we’ve all learned from Spider-Man “with great power comes great responsibility”.  That idea could [...]
