“…very unlikely that he will pitch in 2013.” – John Mozeliak, Cardinals GM (about 20 minutes ago) “Well, FU*%!” -Me, just now If it looks like a duck and sounds like a duck, then it’s probably forced retirement in the near future. Grrr.
We’re live from the media room at Winter Warm Up 2013. Stay tuned here, as we will be live blogging with stories, quotes, and hopefully audio throughout the day, as fast as we can type after the players leave the podium. 9:31 am – Matt Holliday Bouncing Back for 2013 Matt Holliday finished the 2012 [...]
Every year the members of the United Cardinal Bloggers (UCB) pause for a few moments to bestow honors and blah, blah, blah. Without any more of that ado that apparently there is much of for no reason, here is my UCB Awards ballot.
The UCB roundtable question of the day for November 19th involved some alternate universe baseball, because why not have it involve alternate universe baseball?

With the trade of Tyler Greene to the Houston Astros, the list of ex-Cardinals grew just a bit. As a matter of fact, he might be the final piece to the most epic NotCardinals team ever. Consider the potential NotCardinals 25-man roster. Note that several ex-Redbirds have been excluded, but many belong on the 40-man [...]
