Playoffs

  World Series Swag Bob Gibson, Bruce Sutter, and Adam Wainwright have always commanded attention while on the pitcher’s mound.  When they all took the mound together for ceremonial pitches, it was like watching different 3 points in space-time meeting for just a moment.  Geeky?  Yes.  Awesome?  Absolutely.  For a fleeting instant, I almost wanted [...]

Call it Puma Power if you like or maybe a Berkman Bomb is your preference. Either way the NL Comeback Player of the Year has made it all the way to the top again, this time ready to bring a title home to St. Louis. Home is fitting since the former Houston star and native Texan [...]

Been collecting links (and a few other goodies) all day in the interest of sharing with you loyal three readers… Patrick Rishe writes at Forbes.com that he believes the Cards’ deep run into the playoffs and World Series appearance further cements the chances that Albert Pujols will re-sign with St. Louis. At the Mariners blog [...]

I’ll admit that my interest in the Rangers this year was primarily due to the fact that I had CJ Wilson, Matt Harrison, Colby Lewis, Alexi Ogando, David Murphy, and Mitch Moreland each on a fantasy baseball team at one time or another.  Following them more closely than ever, I could help but have a [...]

Breaking Down Jaime Garcia

by on October 15, 2011 · 4 comments

Evidently being the favorite just doesn’t suit the 2011 edition, so it is back to square one as far as these Cardinals are concerned. And as much as it pains me to write this, I wouldn’t want it any other way. St. Louis gets to go out with a bang, fitting since the opposite can [...]

Late last night/early this morning, we posted our 1982/2011 Cards and Brewers roster mash-ups. The idea behind this undertaking is to find the best players, hitters, and pitchers from the 1982 and 2011 Milwaukee Brewers teams and make a roster with them – same for the 1982 and 2011 Cardinals. Now it’s time for the [...]

Back in January of last year, we made a “mashup” of the Cardinal teams of 2000 and 2010 – choosing the best player seasons of each year and combining them to form one lineup/roster. In anticipation of NLCS Game Three, here is a similar exercise for the 1982 World Series and 2011 National League Championship [...]

In an effort to keep things positive, to look forward to games still winnable, and – well – to ultimately put the bad taste of last night’s NLCS Game One loss out of our collective mouths, let’s look at some things we can reasonably expect to see tonight and beyond: Tony La Russa will not hesitate [...]
