Inter-league

Rather than focus on just one topic, I’m giving in to my less focused side and tossing a bunch of thoughts against the perverbial wall to see what sticks.  The end result is a shotgun splatter pattern of fragmented thoughts that exceed the 140 character limit of a tweet but aren’t deserving of a complete [...]

Inter-League Ploy

If you haven’t noticed, the Cardinals are in the middle of a stretch during which they play 16 games in 16 days.  That alone is tough enough, but somewhere in the middle of that they are starting inter-league play (aka – “The unbalanced schedule”).  Maybe it’s a statistical certainty that over a really long period of [...]

Taking into account that Whiteyball is all but dead, I am still surprised by what this little experiment has taught me. My heart and head were in the right place (for once) by pushing for Colby to take over his chosen role. But boy, the responses shocked even my most cynical viewpoints about TLR and [...]

An expression is worth what you say? I took this pic with my wife last year during the STL/KC game, and I imagine it is the same look Colby Rasmus gave TLR when the lead-off question came up. The truth hurts, and the Cardinals have only one true option to man the most important spot [...]

Motivated by an incredible UCB Radio outing, the biggest question to date isn’t where Holliday should be batting or even who the fifth starter will be come August. The Cardinals are faced with an even more daunting task, and I’m looking at our loyal three readers for answers. St. Louis can’t seem to score runs [...]

May 23rd, 2009 – Kansas City Royals @ St Louis Cardinals Cardinals 5, Royals 0 Well, if it weren’t for the goings on of the eighth inning (which you can find over at Fungoes), the ninth inning would’ve been an uneventful and good end to the ballgame for the Cardinals. Indeed, the game wrap-up had [...]

Cardinals versus Royals

At this stage, I’m not really sure how else to describe it. Words, for the most part, escape me. This team has failed. Four times. Tonight more emphatically than before. Sigh.

Utter and Complete Failure – 2 Success – 1 That’s about the best way I can describe the last three days versus the Tigers. And that doesn’t encompass the whole team – plenty of Cardinal players did quite well for themselves in the vast expanse of outfield that is Comerica Park. The bullpen was another [...]

Ok, so I’m not a professional scout – nor would I consider myself even an amateur scout – but it sounds like a much better excuse for me attending the Cubs-Orioles game at Wrigley last night than just “my buddy had an extra ticket.” Some notes from the game that would be of interest to [...]
