So by now everyone knows that erstwhile Cardinals second baseman Adam Kennedy went and inked a minor-league deal yesterday with the Tampa Bay Rays. While this is certain to barely register as more than a blip on Tony LaRussa’s radar, who previously said he had “the primary input on this situation. I’m not putting it [...]

Ok, I know you’re tired of hearing about the Alex Rodriguez steroid saga.  I’ve had more than my fill of it as well.  I don’t plan to rehash how Rodriguez has sullied the game, and how he is a liar, a cheat, etc. that has been trumpted across the blogosphere since Saturday’s announcement and Sunday’s [...]

Strangely (or perhaps fittingly), our two-hundredth post arrives today, on a day that we begin our most aggressive undertaking in this site’s brief history. Today marks the beginning of a three-part series here at Pitchers Hit Eighth (hopefully it is only three) taking an in-depth look into the Cardinals’ approach to defending the running game. [...]

Well, due to some coordination confusion, we weren’t able to get Derrick Goold on the show as hoped. We did however, have some great banter about Mo’s afternoon chat, among other things.  We even had folks listening in via the call-in line (thanks Lance!). Listen to the show via the widget below, or get it [...]

9pm CT Wednesday night marks the next installment of UCB Radio. I will be the host for this edition, as Derrick Goold joins us to take a smattering of questions. Derrick is going to be a bit short on time, so as with our last special guest, we will be conducting a Q&A of sorts [...]

Today brought us some great posts across the Cardinal blogosphere, not so indirectly focused toward an article that appeared yesterday in the St Louis Post-Dispatch. I don’t have a lot to add to what Pip and C70 have already said regarding the venom being spewed toward Cardinal management, nor about the media’s involvement in provoking [...]

Listen to UCB Radio Hour

Last night’s UCB Radio Hour proved very successful, Matthew Leach was great, answering questions with some insight we generally don’t get “on the outside looking in” during the first 20 minutes of the show.  I popped on later for some discussions about the outfield, the infield, and management. Listen to the podcast via iTunes by [...]

Matthew Leach on UCB Radio

Tomorrow night marks the return of UCB Radio – back from holiday hiatus.  Show starts at 10pm CT. This week we have a special guest joining us for the first portion of the show (I’m told probably the first 15-20 minutes), Matthew Leach from MLB.com.  Matthew covers the Cards for MLB.com and also keeps his [...]

Matthew Leach, Cardinals beat writer for MLB.com, put up a post today about the Aaron Miles “situation” on his blog Obviously, You’re Not a Golfer. First, if you don’t read Matthew’s blog, you should. When he does write over there (yes, that’s an open poke at Matthew to get him to write there more) it’s [...]

So I’ve been banging these ideas, ‘theories’ if you will, around in my head since the Khalil Greene trade was announced late last week.  I decided that some of them were just too ingenious to keep to myself. Everyone knows and acknowledges that one of the Cardinals’ priorities heading into this season was finding middle [...]
