I didn’t get to see all of the game in Cincinnati last night (MLB.tv clearly still working out the bugs this season), but what I did see via the tiny little screen on my iPhone (AtBat working like a charm) left me with the following quick hits: Cardinals 6, Reds 3 Ryan Frankhausen?  Isringlin? Ryan [...]

[Update 04.01.2010: Guess I could've included the Twitter accounts for everyone here at PH8 in the original post, eh? @PitchersHit8th, @aprfool79, @andrewdmoses - follow us!] After seeing a wonderful post at metsgrrl.com outlining the basics of following New York Mets Baseball on Twitter, I decided something similar was necessary for Cards fans.

How fitting is it that nearly all candidates to take home the top pitcher of the year award have the Molina boys to thank in some way. CC has Jose and last year’s winner, Tim Linecum, plays catch with Bengie. While it is easy to put Carp and Wainer on a pedestal, enough isn’t said [...]
