Skip Schumaker – Champion in more than 1 sense… You probably do not know Sean, Jamie, and Reesa Stutzman.  I believe it even less probable that you have heard of Krabbe Leukodystrophy.  Fortunately, Skip Schumaker knows both the family and a little about Krabbe Leukodystrophy.  Even more importantly, Skip has stepped up in a big [...]

Happy Father’s Day to all of you dads. I spent the mid-afternoon of my Father’s Day at the local swimming hole with the young boy PH8 and Wife PH8 – who, bless her heart, advised me to start the Cards game from the beginning once we returned home and nap-time had ensued. *sigh* Little did [...]

David Freese: Two-for-four, one double, one home run, three runs batted in. Both the double and the home run were to the right-center gap. That’s important, in context. Post-game, the @Cardinals social media folks had this to add on Freese’s solid day at the plate: https://twitter.com/Cardinals/status/213471819636817921 What could he possibly have found?  Cards beat-writer extraordinaire Derrick [...]

I knew I would see them, just as soon as A.J. Pierzynski deposited a baseball into the stands.  They were coming, as sure as the Cardinals would lose the game, and I couldn’t help but search them out. It was time for the “Mitchell Boggs sucks” tweets. http://twitter.com/stlouis0/status/212733554914885632 This strikes me as odd, since Boggs’ [...]

Every armchair GM and amateur medical specialist seems to have formulated an opinion on why Jaime Garcia has struggled this season.  The ideas run the gamut from “Jaime is immature” to “Garcia has an undiagnosed medical condition” and back to “Jaime stinks”.  Despite the temptation to join the Cardinal Nation Ballpark Villagers with pitchforks, I [...]

You could practically hear the groans echoing through Cardinals Nation when the MLB Network graphic popped on screen for the team’s first pick in Monday’s draft. The selection, at No. 19 overall, was Texas A&M right-handed pitcher Michael Wacha. The comp listed for him by the MLBN broadcast was Jon Garland. Jon Garland? Oh, c’mon! [...]

Ask a group of Cardinal fans about why the team sits 1.5 games behind the Reds in the NL Central division, and the 2 words most likely to appear in responses are “injuries” and “pitching”.  Certainly, injuries to key players have piled up and taken a toll on the team.  Losing both a pitching Carpenter [...]

Cardinals attempt to rock the vote by swaying voters using rather old-fashioned tactics that involve sensory overload of some kind.  In this case, they have started the “Vote to send Cardinals to All-Star Game” ad campaign with a questionable list of choices.  According to this screenshot taken from the Cardinals.com website just a few days [...]

Think the Cardinals have at least average to above average players at every position on the field?  Think again.  According to the metric “Team Runs Saved”, the Cardinals rank in a tie for 6th in the NL with a -4 runs saved for the season.  Ranking 6th out of 16 teams sounds pretty good, or [...]

  Perhaps no Cardinals player receives more scrutiny day in, day out for performances in small sample sizes than Tyler Greene.  Greene has no shortage of detractors who have watched him struggle during his stretches at the major league level, and he has a dedicated group of fans who manage to find some reason for [...]
