I had planned to put this up this morning and never found the time. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your viewpoint), it now serves as a great distraction from the late innings of Game One between the Cards and Dodgers out at Chavez Ravine. Assembled below is a wide-ranging smorgasboard of links culled from across [...]

Last night’s game was pretty boring huh?  Adam Wainwright and shutout baseball?  Quick game?  YAWN! Don’t fret PH8ers – we’ve got some new (and some old) links for you to peruse.

For every [...]

Who were those masked men last night? What got into the Cardinal bats? More importantly, will Tony actually stick with the lineup for a second day to try and keep the spark going?  [Ed. note - A: No.  Rasmus will sit today versus a left-handed starter, Andrew Miller.  Lots of right-handed hitters in there today.] [...]

With the 19th selection of the 2009 Major League Baseball First Year Player Draft, the St. Louis Cardinals have selected right-handed pitcher Shelby Miller, from Brownwood High School in Brownwood, TX. ‘Round here we know better than to step on the toes of the fine folks over at Future Redbirds, who have far more knowledge [...]

Chris Carpenter’s fine outing against the Cincinnati Reds last night had me wondering: The Cardinals’ starting pitching staff has been phenominal (with a few hiccups) in the last month or so, but are they clearly distancing themselves from the rest of the league in that regard? Well, classic metrics tell us it is so. The [...]
