Cardinals Coaches

So I’ve been biding my time, waiting, watching, allowing the news to come to me. As I’m sure my loyal readers know (all three of you), it’s been eerily quiet. Let’s catch up with the goings on… First, I wanted to take another opportunity to publicize the debut and continuing development of United Cardinal Bloggers’ [...]

Put aside for a minute the fact that he wants to be traded (or for that matter, thinks he’s a tradeable commodity at this point). Adam Kennedy had another ho-hum two-for-four last night with one run batted in.  The effort raised his season batting average to .271. Sure, he’s not hitting for power, as his [...]

This makes [...]
