2010 Cardinals Game Notes

An expression is worth what you say? I took this pic with my wife last year during the STL/KC game, and I imagine it is the same look Colby Rasmus gave TLR when the lead-off question came up. The truth hurts, and the Cardinals have only one true option to man the most important spot [...]

Motivated by an incredible UCB Radio outing, the biggest question to date isn’t where Holliday should be batting or even who the fifth starter will be come August. The Cardinals are faced with an even more daunting task, and I’m looking at our loyal three readers for answers. St. Louis can’t seem to score runs [...]

Cards versus Cubs at Wrigley Field – does it get much better than that?  Well, assuming a Cardinal victory anyway… The United Cardinal Bloggers again undertake our progressive game blog, and you can find the previous and following innings here. I’m covering the fourth inning today, and here we go with the heart of the [...]

Well, the game wasn’t really the story last night, was it? It’s still difficult for me to determine exactly when, by watching the various videos of the incident, the young man was tasered, but the lead photo at Deadspin makes it clear that it actually happened. Wonder if a person that would run onto the [...]

Time to play catch up with all of the random things flailing about in my brain over the weekend and this morning: Batting in the ninth slot agrees with Brendan Ryan.  He’s got 5 hits in 16 at-bats and 2 walks since Tony La Russa has gone back to the well with the pitcher-eighth lineup.  [...]

Honk, Honk, Honk, Honk, Honk, Honk, Honk One for each magnificent inning pitched by PH8-adopted starting pitcher Jaime Garcia. Jaime was brilliant again last night, striking out five while only walking one and allowing four hits over seven strong innings. His pitch count got up into triple digits (102), which mildly concerns me, and should [...]

Two stats are the centerpiece for today’s story, but I’m not quite there yet. After the emotional weekend that was, I fully expected a let down for this series. Arizona didn’t exactly have a lot going for them and being swept in San Diego never helps leading into a home stand. To make matters worse [...]

I had a lot more fun writing my regular Sunday piece at Baseball Digest today than I thought I would. All of the anxiety and distaste for in-game decisions that I had last night had faded.  I had read the various game stories telling of Tony LaRussa and his staff applauding the team in the [...]

It is a very long season, especially sitting here in April, but yesterday’s day/night epic will be talked about over and over. I’ll leave most of the yummy goodness to others because honestly — I’m exhausted. St. Louis Beat P-D’s take should be even more fun in the morning but the JSL!!! guru gives this [...]
