Minor League Cardinals

Starting the final limp to October, this week marks big things for the Cardinals’ family and the PH8 team. My return to the site is just a blip on the radar, but I admit it is good to be back. No one could have predicted the free fall that St. Louis has experienced since the dust-up [...]

Matthew Leach has news of Fernando Salas being recalled from Memphis – again – at his blog. Our loyal readers (all three of you) will recall that earlier this month, we started tracking Salas’ frequent flyer miles. Well, the last two trips back and forth from St. Louis are helping Fernando to inch closer to [...]

I will have a full write-up on Miller’s performance yet in the next day or so, but wanted to get you some video of Cards prospect pitcher Shelby Miller that I took at this weekend’s game. I apologize for the shakiness at times, I took this on my phone and was holding it between the [...]

Young Fernando Salas has seemingly become this year’s “Yo-Yo Man” for the Cardinals, bouncing back and forth often between Memphis and the big club.  Mitchell Boggs and P.J. Walters have previously seen action as the Yo-Yo Man, being called up as an extra arm, to replace an injured pitcher, or just on TLR’s whims – [...]

According to Cards Director of Media Relations Brian Bartow (on Twitter), relief pitcher Mike MacDougal has been called up from Memphis. MacDougal last pitched in the big leagues for the Washington Nationals last season. MacDougal has battled control issues and injuries throughout his career, often bouncing back and forth between the bigs and the minors [...]

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 [...]

While not something I originally planned on including today, it is important for all of us here at PH8 to express our condolences to the Walters family. We were fortunate to get to know P.J. while interviewing him on UCB Radio, and I look forward to watching him overcome this tragedy and again honor his [...]

Now that the current St. Louis shortstop appears off the Troy Glaus recovery program, I felt it was a good time to close out the infield on our, ahem, rather late look at the 2009 Cardinals. Brendan Ryan has every opportunity to lock down a key defensive position for as long as he wants it, [...]

As a failed former third baseman, I know just how crucial and difficult this position can be to a successful club. This becomes even more apparent when multiple players are used to try and lock down the hot corner. Some teams can hide an offensive liability around the diamond but rarely, if ever, does the [...]
