Dennis

Yes, I’m really that bored, and I’m suffering withdrawals from Cardinals baseball.  No, it’s just not enough to watch the playoffs.  As the saying goes, I don’t have a horse in this race.  I’m also not a Yankee hater, because I wouldn’t have an issue with the Cardinals behaving exactly the same way the Yankees do [...]

Who’s on Second?

by on October 20, 2010 · 0 comments

Come spring of 2011, several of us Cardinals fans may be asking that very same question. Rather than wait for knowledgeable baseball oracles to purvey insider information to us in the form of #intrigue and #development, let’s do some pondering of our own.  I’ll begin with a list of free agent second basemen that I [...]

I’ve read several columns lauding the Rangers for their classy celebration of their series clinching victory over the Tampa Rays.  The celebration included a special shower for the team’s star outfielder and recovering substance addict, Josh Hamilton, that included Canada Dry ginger ale substituted for the usual champagne.  The champagne was instead kept on ice while the [...]

Trust me, there will be many, many blogs, articles, and sports segments dedicated solely to the pending free agency of one Jose Alberto Pujols.  Rather than wait for the World Series to end to begin speculating, I want to begin the conversation right now.  It’s not that the playoffs aren’t worth watching, it’s just that [...]

Calling Out The BBWAA

by on October 6, 2010 · 1 comment

Yeah, that’s right.  I’m calling out the Baseball Writers Association of America (BBWAA) – the group that votes on the NL and AL MVP awards.  I’m challenging its voters to explain how they fill out their ballots.  Dare to consider advanced statistics, defense, intangibles, and team strength in proper context.  Go ahead.  Do it!  I double dog dare [...]

I’ve never warmly embraced the end of MLB’s regular season, even when the Cardinals were headed to the playoffs.  There’s just something about the end of the regular season that signals a change in the air.  It’s the unofficial beginning of “true” fall for those of us who live in denial of what the modern Gregorian calendar indicates every [...]

In this follow-up to “Play GM For A Day”, you get to see just how poorly I play the aforementioned game.  While I lack both business acumen and talent evaluation ability, it’s probably my inability to emotionally detach that ultimately will derail my career as a GM.  Honestly, the members of Cardinal Nation may have a [...]

Play GM For A Day

by on September 27, 2010 · 2 comments

Okay, let’s play GM for a day.  Why not pretend to spend someone else’s money and run our favorite baseball team this off-season?  Since many of us question every move the team makes (or doesn’t make), let’s give it a shot.  This post contains some pertinent information which might be useful for making the tough business decisions the GM makes.   There is also some [...]

Introduction (aka a bunch of words at the top): An introduction is most certainly in order.  I’m Dennis, but you may know me on Twitter as gr33nazn – owner of #ManFridge.  I recently authored a post on my personal blog about why I’m not a baseball blogger, so naturally I’m now attempting to be a baseball [...]
