Non-Cardinals

So I’ve been banging these ideas, ‘theories’ if you will, around in my head since the Khalil Greene trade was announced late last week.  I decided that some of them were just too ingenious to keep to myself.

Let’s get an early jump. Based on what we have now and what we know about Tony let’s try to set the lineup for 2009. You can enter names or stats or just general wants. Leadoff, RF, Skip Schumaker. – Schumaker really proved himself as a leadoff hitter last year. In fact, Shoeman batted .309 [...]

Mike over at Stan Musial’s Stance was the question-maker for the weekend. He wanted to know the group’s thoughts on whether or not agents have become too powerful in the wake of the recent Manny Ramirez saga and the accusations that Scott Boras orchestrated his exit from the Boston Red Sox. Cruise over to SMS [...]

Daniel over at Redbirds Fun posted his Roundtable question regarding the Jake Peavy SweepstakesTM. I’ve obviously (if you read the transcript) taken a strong position on this issue that may be unpopular with most Card fans, including some of you loyal readers here, all three of you.

For your viewing pleasure, the reader board at the Tampa airport, heading down to baggage claim: No, I don’t have tickets, nor will I be in town once the game starts. Quick day trip, had hoped to cruise past the Trop but didn’t have the chance. Needless to say, I think the area is stoked. [...]
