On the morning of January 19th, I started collecting links – as many as I can find with minimal effort – that discuss the Albert Pujols contract discussions. Why? Who knows, yet here they are. Oh, and to serve you all, our three loyal readers! The Daily Pujols certainly won’t be a comprehensive list, but between local, [...]

World Series Game Seven’s are best watched from the edge of a seat. I learned that last night as the Cardinals slowly, systematically – thankfully – secured their eleventh World Championship in franchise history. What a game. What a series. What a season. The Texas Rangers were the perfect, formidable foe for this season’s Fall [...]

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 [...]

Been collecting links (and a few other goodies) all day in the interest of sharing with you loyal three readers… Patrick Rishe writes at Forbes.com that he believes the Cards’ deep run into the playoffs and World Series appearance further cements the chances that Albert Pujols will re-sign with St. Louis. At the Mariners blog [...]

I’ll admit that my interest in the Rangers this year was primarily due to the fact that I had CJ Wilson, Matt Harrison, Colby Lewis, Alexi Ogando, David Murphy, and Mitch Moreland each on a fantasy baseball team at one time or another.  Following them more closely than ever, I could help but have a [...]

Late last night/early this morning, we posted our 1982/2011 Cards and Brewers roster mash-ups. The idea behind this undertaking is to find the best players, hitters, and pitchers from the 1982 and 2011 Milwaukee Brewers teams and make a roster with them – same for the 1982 and 2011 Cardinals. Now it’s time for the [...]

Back in January of last year, we made a “mashup” of the Cardinal teams of 2000 and 2010 – choosing the best player seasons of each year and combining them to form one lineup/roster. In anticipation of NLCS Game Three, here is a similar exercise for the 1982 World Series and 2011 National League Championship [...]

Robinson Cano hit a metric butt-ton of bombs (32) on Monday night at Chase Field.  And he could’ve hit more, hitting the winning home run with a handful of outs in pocket. Matt Holliday hit, well, decidedly less (7) off of his selected pitcher, Yadier Molina.  (Wait, what?  Yes, Tony La Russa must have been [...]
