Even my wife has decided that trying to watch the rest of this month’s games are difficult at best. The Cardinals were given every opportunity to make the Central a race as the Reds were floundering to open September. Now the best thing to hope for is a second place finish…really? St. Louis can celebrate [...]

Thanks to the fine folks at Cot’s Baseball Contracts, we continually have more insight than ever into the contracts and payroll of Major League Baseball. As such, we can put together a list of the potential bonuses the Cardinals could stand to pay out at the end of the 2010 season to certain players if [...]

Love it or hate it, the Cardinals have locked up their Pujols Protector. Matt Holliday announced on ESPN’s Doug Gottlieb show that he has agreed to return to St. Louis. Thoughts? Love to know the exact details, but a 7 year deal actually works for me. Derrick Goold has been all over the Hot Stove [...]

1. Cardinal Player of the Year Matt Holliday Albert Pujols Brendan Ryan Write-in: __________ Is it really necessary for me to write this one up?  Mang raked again this season, carried the team through the first half.  Will he seek the dollars or the championships in seasons beyond 2011?  Or both? 2.

Today’s post took much longer than I planned for two reasons. The first is related to the Cardinals but the second, is well, not even close. For those that know me, my love for movies is nearly on par with that of a certain St. Louis sports team. We are going to keep this rolling [...]

How fitting is it that nearly all candidates to take home the top pitcher of the year award have the Molina boys to thank in some way. CC has Jose and last year’s winner, Tim Linecum, plays catch with Bengie. While it is easy to put Carp and Wainer on a pedestal, enough isn’t said [...]

[Ed. note - I know it's July.  I know I'm about four-ish weeks late with this post.  Sue me.  Better late than never, right?] I was lucky growing up where I did, about a half-hour east of St Louis – “on the Illinois side.” I was able to attend Cardinal games fairly regularly, thanks to [...]

The Cardinals begin another homestand tonight, starting with a three-game set versus the New York Mets.  We exchanged quick Q&A with Mike Nichols over at MetsBlog.com.  Mike had some interesting questions for me that you can read here, and below are his responses to mine: PH8: The struggles of the Cardinals and Mets bullpens, respectively, [...]
