NL Central Division

Well, that’s really where it all began, isn’t it? I apologize for my longer than anticipated absence, and in some ways, I’m not that sorry.  I barely got to see any Cardinal baseball while I’ve been on ‘hiatus’, and that’s seemingly been a good thing.  I hate to go down the path of pessimist, but [...]

I am, unfortunately, going to be pretty much out of commission for the rest of this week, due to commitments out of my control.  Yes, that includes not really being able to keep tabs on what happens in the Milwaukee series. I do plan on returning with a full head of steam during the Labor [...]

As I was watching Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Reds, watching the Cards squander another opportunity for a sweep, I saw something that I hadn’t seen from a Cardinal hurler all season.  I saw Kyle Lohse stick up for someone on his team.  Granted, it was himself he was sticking up for, but he showed [...]

Ok, so I’m not a professional scout – nor would I consider myself even an amateur scout – but it sounds like a much better excuse for me attending the Cubs-Orioles game at Wrigley last night than just “my buddy had an extra ticket.” Some notes from the game that would be of interest to [...]
