Cardinals Coaches

It is a very long season, especially sitting here in April, but yesterday’s day/night epic will be talked about over and over. I’ll leave most of the yummy goodness to others because honestly — I’m exhausted. St. Louis Beat P-D’s take should be even more fun in the morning but the JSL!!! guru gives this [...]

I couldn’t help myself.  Joe Sports Fan’s Matt Sebek challenged his followers on Twitter last night to write the headline for today’s game story about Brad Penny’s effort last night… and what you see above is what you get.  I’m ashamed. Penny was masterful, obviously already seeing benefits from working under pitching coach Dave Duncan, [...]

Sounds like a pretty cool name for a band, right? Actually, with his appearance catching in the late innings of Sunday night’s game, Nick Stavinoha joined a short list of Cardinal players that have made a one-game cameo playing catcher (when catcher is not their natural position). Today’s roster move to put Jason LaRue on [...]

We've spent most of our writing time answering those questions and taking part in those discussions (gladly, I might [...]

Forget the relatively frigid weather of the winter and indulge yourself in a warm summer day. Don’t get too comfortable though. After all, it’s not the Winter-Warmup that [...]

With names from Cardinal teams past popping up everywhere – Mark McGwire is the team’s new hitting coach and possible pinch-hitter (depending on whether Tony would ever really push for such a thing), and now Jim Edmonds has “challenged” LaRussa to give him a roster spot (believe what you will there) – I thought it [...]

Ed. note: This can be said of really any post here at Pitchers Hit Eighth, but I’d like to make explicitly clear for this one in particular that these are my opinions and mine only. Others may agree or disagree with me, but this is all coming from my brain, not anyone else who may [...]

A little birdy told me to get this posted now since most of tonight’s Radio Hour is pretty much accounted for…lots of happenings in Pitchers Hit Eighth land so let me get a couple of announcements out of the way first. Not one to normally toot my own horn, I have to this time since [...]
