by on February 18, 2011 · 5 comments

Believe it or not, this is actually my 100th entry for PH8.  So, how am I going to commemorate such a monumental accomplishment?  By breaking down the previous 99 and converting them into a batting line, of course.  Isn’t that what all bloggers do?  Somewhere out there at least 1 of our 3 dedicated readers [...]

I’m definitely not Miss Manners, and I’ll never be confused with Emily Post.  However, I am the owner of the one ManFridge to rule them all, and ManFridge has some baseball etiquette reminders for all of you diehard baseball fans who are coming out of hiberation at the first signs of spring training.  If “pitchers and [...]

The Zen of Cardinal Nation

by on February 10, 2011 · 3 comments

At some point, I’m waiting for an outbreak of common sense to strike.  The sky will no longer be falling, and people will stop preaching “doom and gloom” to the members of Cardinal Nation for the sake of page views and ratings.  Ultimately, the factual reality will prevail over conjecture, hearsay, and third generation innuendo [...]

The back-and-forth amongst Cardinal fans about the Albert Pujols contract negotiations continue to go on as we approach Pujols’ deadline for finalizing the deal.  There are definite “sides” to this story, those who believe he must be signed at any cost, and those who are wary of what any cost might do to the long-term [...]

I know, I know – that’s happened a lot more often than just two years ago… *rimshot* Two years ago is when some motivated individual stomped out the words “CUBS SUCK” in the snow at the Ballpark Village site. Click below and remember the good times, pre-softball field. [ Ballpark Village Says Cubs Suck ]

If you read the recent article here at PH8 about the YankiLeaks incident, you are probably already familiar with the dasterdly YankiLeaks organization which was responsible for helping create the “Abner Doubleday Agent-speak-to-English” translator.  I previously used the machine to decipher the encoded communications passed between members of the Yankees organization and Jeter’s agent, Casey Close.  [...]

30 More Stupid Human Tricks

by on January 15, 2011 · 1 comment

Originally titled “30 More Fun Ways to Pass The Time Until Spring Training“, I thought I needed a shorter title that would work better on Twitter.  It’s really the “Part Deux” to the first “Fun Ways” post that was posted last year and may be found here.  Admittedly, it’s all completely juvenile, tongue-in-cheek, “oh-no-he-didn’t-really-write-that” attempts [...]

I don’t really have anything to add to Derrick Goold’s snippet, or the press release at TheCardinalNation.com, or Kary Booher’s blog post about the Cardinals hiring Phillip Wellman – but if they can post the video for why Wellman is a name banging around the back of your head, SO CAN I. You know this guy. [...]
