Non-Cardinals

[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 [...]

More on the DeRosa trade… Speculation is already running rampant on the name of the remaining player the Cardinals will send to the Cleveland Indians by September 1st to complete the Mark DeRosa trade. We’ll know the answer to that question soon enough. But what about the other potential player to be named later in [...]

Who were those masked men last night? What got into the Cardinal bats? More importantly, will Tony actually stick with the lineup for a second day to try and keep the spark going?  [Ed. note - A: No.  Rasmus will sit today versus a left-handed starter, Andrew Miller.  Lots of right-handed hitters in there today.] [...]

With the 19th selection of the 2009 Major League Baseball First Year Player Draft, the St. Louis Cardinals have selected right-handed pitcher Shelby Miller, from Brownwood High School in Brownwood, TX. ‘Round here we know better than to step on the toes of the fine folks over at Future Redbirds, who have far more knowledge [...]

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 [...]

It occurred to me after Kyle McClellan walked Omar Infante to load the bases last night in the eighth inning, “we’ve seen this before, I know we have.” Thing is, I wasn’t referring to the impending blown save and loss. Cardinal pitchers have walked twelve batters this season with no one out and the bases [...]

The Cards took two of three from the Wee Bears this weekend, continuing their strong play at home.  Sunday was a different story at Busch III unfortunately, but we’re choosing to stay on the postitve side regarding overall outcome of the series. A few quick hitters this morning, then we focus on the Braves: —– [...]

Cardinal fans, pray for good results from the MRI done on Kyle Lohse’s right knee yesterday.  What looked like an innocent tweak of the ankle and a stubborn starter trying to finish five and get the win quickly turned into another waiting and wishing game for Cardinal fans. Where do they go if Lohse winds [...]
