Last night’s game was pretty boring huh?  Adam Wainwright and shutout baseball?  Quick game?  YAWN! Don’t fret PH8ers – we’ve got some new (and some old) links for you to peruse. DeRo, Smoltzie, and those poor Baby Bears The Boston Herald dumps a heap of salt into the wounds of Cub fans with this one. [...]

Getting This Party Started

by on August 26, 2009 · 1 comment

After such a warm welcome, I figured out the best way to introduce myself again to the three loyal readers of PH8. I’m going to talk entirely about another person. Erin Bolen has resumed her pinch-hitting role down in Springfield and shares with us that she has the inside track to take over the beat full-time. [...]

Get ready for the link-fest folks. Shelby Miller The Cardinals’ front office has been saying for weeks they weren’t worried about getting a deal done.  The St. Louis scribes have said for some time that they expected it to get done.  There are tidbits floating around on Twitter today that many of these deals have [...]

Retro-PH8 One year ago to the day, Jarrod Washburn had been claimed off of waivers, and everyone was scrambling to find out which team had placed the claim.  Could it have been the Cardinals? He wound up staying with the Mariners when they pulled him back, only to ship him off to the Tigers this [...]

The Matt Holliday to St. Louis trade rumors got us thinking… Just how large of a haul has Billy Beane raked in via Mark Mulder’s balky shoulder?  The answer may surprise you, and make you rethink whether the Cards should be party to increasing the haul. As you’ll find below, the (now) ill-fated Mulder deal [...]

As the last few moments of the All-Star Wednesday black hole tick away, I wanted to throw some odds and ends at you. Josh from Redbirds Row did an interview with Memphis farmhand Pete Parise on Monday.  Check it out at Blog Talk Radio, or by using the handy new iTunes link image at the [...]

[Ed. note - I know it's July.  I know I'm about four-ish weeks late with this post.  Sue me.  Better late than never, right?] I was lucky growing up where I did, about a half-hour east of St Louis – “on the Illinois side.” I was able to attend Cardinal games fairly regularly, thanks to [...]

I learned a new baseball term (or maybe just a local one) on Thursday night, when Derrick Goold Twittered back at yours truly explaining that Adam Wainwright’s getting out of another bases loaded situation on Tuesday night in Milwaukee was known as a ‘Houdini’.  (Get it?  Escape?  Good.) Well, of course, the Play Index at [...]

Joe Thurston has cost the Cardinals several outs on the bases (and thus himself as a baserunner and potential run, obviously) this season.  And when I say several, I mean a glaring amount, in comparison. This subject was first broached on Twitter by Matthew Leach, the answer to which I was quickly able to find [...]
