Minor League Cardinals

Today we take part in another United Cardinal Bloggers project, choosing a side of a debate topic to, well, debate with another member of the UCB blogging syndicate. My very worthy adversary today is Andrea over at Baseball Digest.  We will be arguing politely discussing the merits of resigning center fielder Rick Ankiel at the [...]

What a two game stretch for the Cardinals, eh? After flipping the switch on the typical bullpen story Tuesday night, the Cards were pretty dominant from wire-to-wire last night. Joel Pineiro was economical, efficient, and overall outstanding.  He gave the bullpen some rest after lots of work Tuesday night, not to mention being short two [...]

Days like today renew my interest in baseball. The Cards took a tough loss on the chin Saturday afternoon, they lost an opportunity to strike back yesterday because of weather, and today was a scheduled day off. I took the opportunity to listen to the Memphis Redbirds play in Oklahoma City versus the Redhawks. The [...]

Brian Barton, a Rule 5 draft selection a year ago, is headed to the Atlanta Braves for right-handed relief pitcher Blaine Boyer.

Dear Tony:  I have to pay for this domain name.  It was based upon a promise you made a little over a year ago to strategically get Albert Pujols more at-bats while still getting him into the cleanup spot.  I thought it so unique that I ran out and started this site.  Now you’re reneging [...]

[ Ed. note: As part of a spur of the moment "contest" of sorts, I offered up control of this webspace for a day to the first person to guess where the title of this post came from.  Josh from over at Redbirds Row nailed it without even trying hard.  Today, we feature a guest [...]

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 [...]
