The Fall Guy

If you haven’t read Tim McKernan’s article with Kyle Lohse on InsideSTL.com, then I suggest you click here for the goods.  I’d include some quotes, but it’s really worth a read, especially the part where Lohse claims to like Brendan right before he throws him under the team bus with a shot across the professionalism bow.  [...]

A Bucket of Baseballs

by on December 12, 2010 · 8 comments

Seriously, why not just trade Brendan Ryan for a bucket of baseballs?  The bucket of baseballs would be more useful to the 2011 Cardinals than Maikel Cleto.  That’s no knock on Cleto.  He may turn into a fine pitcher, but it’s unlikely that he’ll be a fine pitcher any time soon.  Actually, it’s unlikely that [...]

I usually visit the #stlcards tweets a few times a week to see what exactly the rest of the Cardinal nation tweeps have on their minds, and I frequently find someone amusing to follow in the process.  If you are interested, please feel free to check out the list of people I follow.  Occasionally, a topic [...]

No, I’m not advocating anything that involves combining a “hot stove” and a “shallow pool”.  The title is intended to imply that the pool of free agents and potential trade targets is relatively thin during this hot stove season.  I shouldn’t feel the need to explain that, but I do live in what I consider [...]

A Time for Giving Thanks

As the members of Cardinal Nation prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving, I want to take this opportunity to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday.  If you are driving this weekend, please be mindful of not only yourself but everybody else out there driving as well.  Most accidents are caused by people who don’t expect to [...]

This blog piece is so easy that it basically writes itself.  Veterans Day is an annual federal holiday in the United States which is observed on November 11th to honor military veterans.  Technically, the US government declared that the official spelling does not include the use of the apostrophe, so the grammar police can just [...]

A little later than scheduled, I finally posed my question to the United Cardinal Bloggers for the Fall Roundtable discussions: It would appear as if the Tony La Russa Era is soon coming to a close, but in MLB terms he’s had a unusually long run managing in St. Louis. As we all know, that [...]

Cardinals 2010 Trivia

by on October 26, 2010 · 4 comments

Since it seems that many of us are still looking for ways to pass the time until spring training, I thought that some really easy Cardinals trivia might be in order.  QUESTIONS Which player was 4th on the team in home runs behind Pujols, Holliday, and Rasmus? Which pitcher had the highest batting average among all [...]

Introduction (aka a bunch of words at the top): An introduction is most certainly in order.  I’m Dennis, but you may know me on Twitter as gr33nazn – owner of #ManFridge.  I recently authored a post on my personal blog about why I’m not a baseball blogger, so naturally I’m now attempting to be a baseball [...]

Some closing notes on the manager’s moves during the Reds series (and not the vomiting part): Randy Winn only had one at-bat. Aaron Miles only had one at-bat, and that was after coming in as a defensive substitution for Skip Schumaker at second base.  For the record, I’m okay with that move. Allen Craig was [...]
