Non-Cardinals

I’ve been spending most of my Cardinal brainpower lately keeping up with those prolific writers of the United Cardinal Bloggers.  These guys are making me think really seriously about what I know about the Cardinals and what I’ve yet to learn.  At any rate, I’m throwing my $0.02 in there.  Check out the discussions posted [...]

Trying to play Uni Watch

by on October 5, 2008 · 2 comments

Inspired by Paul Lukas and his website Uni Watch, I had an eye out today during the Bengals-Cowboys game. Specifically, I noticed that Cedric Benson had a different color scheme on the back of his jersey than Chad Johnson. See the white stripe continuing all the way up by his name?  Weird. As I continue [...]

Kyle Lohse gets paid

by on October 1, 2008 · 4 comments

Ok, save the “duh” comments.  I know I’m behind the news here. Fact is, my tardiness was somewhat intentional.  I’ve set myself down at the keyboard several times since Sunday night/Monday afternoon, all set to unleash my true thoughts on the Kyle Lohse signing, only to think better of it and continue to read other [...]

Look at it this way…

At least they’re not the Mets. …or the Rams. …or Scott Linehan. …or Lane Kiffin. Er, you get the point. Congrats Redbirds, for finishing this season on a high note.  A couple of breaks and a few less injuries and we’d still be looking forward to home-team baseball.

That is a question on many a Cards fan’s tongue as the season winds to a close. As Braden Looper prepares to take the mound tonight, in the Cardinals’ final series of this wildly entertaining (and similarly frustrating) season, it could be his final appearance wearing the Birds-on-the-Bat. It can be argued that Looper’s conversion [...]

I try my best to stick with strictly Cards talk here – and try to hold my general contempt for the Cubs as the only topic to a minimum…but this was just too good to pass up. In the interest of full disclosure, I should tell you that I caught this episode of events while [...]

As if watching the late-August and early-September swoon of the Cardinals hasn’t been bad enough, it appears no one else wants to take the NL Wild Card spot in the playoffs.  The Mets lost to the Cubs tonight, allowing the Cardinals to mathematically remain “in the race” regardless of their outcome versus Arizona tonight (and [...]

The ink has barely dried on the St Louis Cardinals’ agreement to continue to partner with the Memphis Redbirds as its triple-A affiliate through 2012. The Pacific Coast League’s Redbirds have been a mainstay in Memphis as the club’s highest level minor league affiliate since the Cards broke affiliation with the Louisville Redbirds (now the [...]

The Milwaukee Brewers fired Ned Yost today, according to ESPN.com. The Brewers were just swept by the Philadelphia Phillies, dropping them into a tie with the Phillies in the NL Wild Card race.  The Brewers have lost 11 of their last 14 games, allowing many teams to climb back into the playoff hunt. This makes [...]

Beat the Pirates

That’s really all the Cardinals had to do this season, with any sort of regularity, to be staring a playoff berth right in the eyes. Sure, 5-10 against the Brewers hasn’t done them any favors either (and 2-4 against the Royals, and 3-4 against the Giants). They’ve had their other opportunities, they’ve had many chances [...]
