Albert Pujols is hitting .714 – think he can keep up that pace? That might be a record or something. So much for his slow start after a down spring. —– Tonight was the first time I saw Skip Schumaker in live-action at second base. He didn’t look bad, save for that monster of a [...]

Spurred on by my continuing research into the Cardinals and their defense of the running game (Jake, I promise that I will have the *real* Yadi post up by the end of the week) and even more by an excellent post over at Fungoes by the UCB’s resident statistician  – I wound up coming across [...]

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 [...]

Those of you listening to 1380 in St Louis today may find this duplicative, same if you read Bernie’s Press Box over at the STLToday forums. If you fit into neither of those groups, this may provide helpful for you.  I listened to Bernie’s segment with Cardinals GM John Mozeliak this afternoon, and there were [...]

Joe Posnanski has done it again.  The most recent issue of Sports Illustrated has Poz’s sit-down interview with Albert Pujols, addressing (what else) his stance and defiance about steroid use.  It is an excellent read, and I advise any Cardinal fan to read it through. Now, I realize that recent history and the now-fractured trust [...]

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 [...]

The UCB Preseason Roundtable discussions continue, with Deaner over at Cardinal Nation Globe posting today about choices for a franchise building block – Albert Pujols exempted. Tomorrow features a great question from Josh at That’s A Winner – I won’t spoil it, but it’s very pertinent to the Cardinal outlook for coming years. —– Tomorrow [...]

Today’s topic from Posnanski on Sports Illustrated was particularly poignant for Cardinal fans.  Poz addressed [...]
