Current Cardinals

No, not *this* The Outfield, but rather the 2009 Cardinals outfield.  What do you imagine Rick Ankiel was thinking to himself watching his mates bang around a bunch of hits yesterday while he continues to struggle at the plate?  Colby Rasmus continues to look more comfortable at the plate, while flashing the leather in center [...]

In light of Cardinal fans’ most recent Chicken Little moment, I present to you (in no particular order) the Top Ten Reasons that the Cardinals’ 2009 season is already over, only nine games in.  Please note:  *tongue firmly in cheek*. Because Ryan Ludwick is still on the bench. Because Yadier Molina has that silly yellow [...]

What an outing by Todd Wellemeyer last night.  Efficient, only 87 pitches through seven innings of work.  He scattered some hits, but only allowed one run – and most importantly – only one walk.  Gotta make Dave Duncan happy. This Cardinal staff is leading the National League in fewest walks allowed. —– Brian Barden got [...]

If you’ve watched ESPN with any regularity today, I’m sure you’ve seen this already. I just saw it this morning. A new ESPN Sportscenter commercial featuring Albert Pujols as “The Machine”. Hilarious.  Enjoy.

This will be a semi-regular feature over there, with FBHS picking our brain about the Redbirds, from a fantasy slant. Please go check out Fresh Out of [...]

Dear Tony:  I have to pay for this domain name.  It was based upon a promise you made a little over a year ago to strategically get Albert Pujols more at-bats while still getting him into the cleanup spot.  I thought it so unique that I ran out and started this site.  Now you’re reneging [...]

I’m not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, and by each and every measure, Chris Carpenter exceeded my wildest expectations with his start today against the Pirates, even collecting the win after the Cards lineup rallied behind some pinch hitters in the bottom of the seventh inning. But could Carp’s start have [...]

RIP Nick Adenhart.  The 22-year-old Angels pitcher passed away early this morning in a tragic hit-and-run accident in Fullerton, CA. The many news bureaus reporting on the accident this morning [LA Times] [ESPN] [NBC LA] [NBC Williamsburg] [More links at Baseball Musings] indicate that it was a three-car incident, caused by a minivan that ran [...]

Albert Pujols is hitting .714 – think he can keep up that pace? That might be a record or something. So much for his slow start after a down spring. —– Tonight was the first time I saw Skip Schumaker in live-action at second base. He didn’t look bad, save for that monster of a [...]
