We showed up on a couple other outposts in the blogosphere lately… MVN Outsider carried our Cardinals Trade Deadline Preview just a few hours before the big Matt Holliday trade. One of my favorite parts of that post? As protective as Cardinals management has been of their minor-league system, I can’t see them parting with [...]

Well, ok, we’re slightly late, since the American League has already triumphed 4-3 tonight in St Louis. Nevertheless, we’re quite pleased to present the spanking new Pitchers Hit Eighth. We hope you like the new look, and are very anxious to get your feedback and suggestions. Some items of note: Removed We deleted some blogroll [...]

[Ed. note - I started putting this together before any accumulated statistics in tonight's game against the Marlins.] Cardinals are 28-5 when they hold the opposition to four runs or less. Sadly, four of those five losses have come since May 16. Cardinals are 20-4 when scoring five or more runs. Only ten of those [...]

Cardinal fans, pray for good results from the MRI done on Kyle Lohse’s right knee yesterday.  What looked like an innocent tweak of the ankle and a stubborn starter trying to finish five and get the win quickly turned into another waiting and wishing game for Cardinal fans. Where do they go if Lohse winds [...]

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 [...]

Because I’m a glutton for punishment, I’m trying to start up a daily morning post that will allow me to put up short tidbits (in addition to Twitter, Facebook, the UCB site, etc) on my thoughts from the previous night’s game, news and notes, etc. I’m trying to keep things fresh for the loyal readers [...]

It just so happens lots of interesting things have been dropped onto our desk in recent days, so figured why not share with the loyal readers (all three of you). Without further ado, the linkage: Braden Looper was scratched from another spring start for the Brewers because of a bad oblique.  I wish Braden all [...]
