Cardinals Front Office

Last week I asked the question, “If the Cardinals could add anyone, whom should they add?”  I was curious to see which active player — with accompanying contract — Cards fans desire the most. Big thanks to all of you who participated in the poll. We got more than 150 votes, and they were quite [...]

Under Construction

  There is no questioning the results thus far.  Cardinals’ GM John Mozeliak has built a good track record during his time with the team.  Is there a method to his madness?  Maybe.  He may not have a printed set of blueprints for building a team, but he certainly seems to have an idea of [...]

If longtime Cardinals nemesis Roy Oswalt is in fact headed to St. Louis on a modest one-year deal, it not only gives the Cards three of the best players from the 2004 Astros team it beat in the NLCS, but also provides the team with a low-risk, high-reward bet. If Oswalt gets hurt or flames [...]

Yeah, I’m a little behind on this one – so what, wanna fight about it? 5. Chris Carpenter and Roy Halladay go fishing I’ve been told, over and over and over and over again, that this was a thing. And then Doc saved someone from a snake and Carp busted up his toe. Story! (You [...]

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 [...]

New Year’s resolutions typically fall into the same category as making your bed every morning – tremendous wastes of time.  By the time December 31st rolls around, how many people even can recall all the resolutions they made?  Instead of focusing on that marathon you never really intend to run, the 20 pounds you won’t make [...]

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. Every position, that is, except for one. There’s Yadier Molina at catcher, Scott Rolen at third base, Edgar Renteria at shortstop (or maybe David Eckstein if [...]

  Ryan Theriot has been non-tendered.  In non-baseball language, that means he wasn’t invited to play in the same sandbox next year.  I plan on wearing a pair of jorts at the home opener in his honor.  It’s not that he wasn’t good, either.  It’s just that his ability to catch and throw the round [...]

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, national, and blog [...]

It’s official.  Albert Pujols has just signed a mega-contract with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim California, USA.  Reportedly, the contract is for something like 10 years and $250-260M.  Huzzah! Since there will be a veritable rat race to bring the factual news to the masses, I’m opting for a more subtle approach.  I’m going [...]
