Cardinals Front Office

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, [...]

Yes, it is already that time of year.  As of right now, over 150 players have already filed for free agency.  Among that group are several members of the 2011 World Series Champion Cardinals.  The team obviously has some decisions to make about these free agents (and others), and it’s usually a lot of fun to [...]

WE’RE BACK At the request of Albert Pujols, The Daily Pujols was suspended during the season – no contract talks. But now we’re back with a vengeance. Not familiar? 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. [...]

Ciao, Tony LaRussa

by on October 31, 2011 · 2 comments

After 16 years, 1408 regular season victories, and 2 World Series titles with the Cardinals, Tony LaRussa has decided to take his talents to somewhere other than the St. Louis dugout.  Talk about going out in style, too.  The Cardinals rallied from 10 1/2 games back in late August to get into the playoffs on [...]

World Series Game Seven’s are best watched from the edge of a seat. I learned that last night as the Cardinals slowly, systematically – thankfully – secured their eleventh World Championship in franchise history. What a game. What a series. What a season. The Texas Rangers were the perfect, formidable foe for this season’s Fall [...]

John Mozeliak doubles up

It’s been said more than once, by more than one person, Cardinals fan or not: The Colby Rasmus trade was an all-in move for the 2011 Cards. All of sports has adopted the strategic poker move as a euphemism for taking extreme measures or doing everything in one’s power to accomplish a goal. After last [...]

Not not those talking heads.  These Talking Heads. “You may ask yourself, ‘Well, how did I get here?’” -David Byrne How DID we get here?  If someone had gone into hibernation at the end of April and woke up in early September, without the convenience of having a standings sheet in front of them, the [...]

3 and Out

by on September 26, 2011 · 7 comments

“You can’t ask for anything more than to be playing meaningful games in September with a chance to make the playoffs.” ~Practically every player/coach/manager on a team about to miss the playoffs. Boom goes the dynamite, people.  I sincerely hope that the folks in the video department for the Cardinals took time to piece together [...]

Once a year, along with the rest of the United Cardinal Bloggers, we get to put this list together as a review of the Cardinals’ farm system. So far, pretty much every year has been an improvement over the previous. This year is no exception. The Cardinals have multiple prospects on the national radar, and [...]

A Quick Nine

by on September 6, 2011 · 5 comments

I had the unfortunate displeasure last night of sitting through almost an entire game at Busch Stadium with a loud, obnoxious know-it-all “fan” blathering on and on right behind me.  The man looked to be in his early to mid 70′s, and he seemed harmless enough until he claimed that Brandon Dickson had just made his [...]
