Cardinals Coaches

Cardinals pitching coach and resident Jedi Master, Dave Duncan, has taken a leave of absence from the team due to “family reasons”.  As a fan of baseball, the Cardinals, and the man himself, I sincerely wish him and his family nothing but the best.  His wife, Jeanine, has been involved in a well-documented fight with [...]

If you think back on the Tony La Russa Era of Cardinals baseball (1996-2011), at least one player immediately should spring to mind at each position in the field.

Late night Twitter rumors are fun! And it’s not Albert Pujols… Tonight, the following Tweet came across my screen: @Ellen_Prinzi: CONGRATULATIONS to @jluhnow [Jeff Luhnow] on being named GM for the Houston Astros.

I really thought Mike Matheny would make a great successor to Dave Duncan one day – following the same route Duncan did, from catcher to successful pitching coach. Instead, Matheny is now Duncan’s boss. Following a relatively short search, John Mozeliak found his man. He didn’t have to look far, awarding the job to the [...]

Just when we thought the crazy part of the baseball year was over, St. Louis now has to fill two very large holes barely a week after celebrating WS Title #11. And for the first time, the thought of not having TLR scowling from the dugout still is hard to imagine. After the final out [...]

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, [...]

I’m guessing that most of you saw Tony La Russa on The Late Show with David Letterman and David Freese on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night when they aired, but for those looking for a one-stop shop to view both, here you go. Tony and Dave (CBS edited their video, this isn’t [...]
