…now go make me a sammich!  Seriously, I’m waiting for you to pull a rabbit (or at least a LHP) out of your hat.  I’ve just spent the last 24 hours making confetti from recycled paper for the forthcoming parade to be held next fall.  Such is the level of expectation associated with your decision [...]

I’ve read several columns lauding the Rangers for their classy celebration of their series clinching victory over the Tampa Rays.  The celebration included a special shower for the team’s star outfielder and recovering substance addict, Josh Hamilton, that included Canada Dry ginger ale substituted for the usual champagne.  The champagne was instead kept on ice while the [...]

Starting the final limp to October, this week marks big things for the Cardinals’ family and the PH8 team. My return to the site is just a blip on the radar, but I admit it is good to be back. No one could have predicted the free fall that St. Louis has experienced since the dust-up [...]

Iraq was all everyone wanted to talk about in my family the summer of 2004. I much rather wanted to talk about how St. Louis was putting together one of the greatest regular seasons in my lifetime. But as most things work out, the war effort did get most of the attention no matter how [...]

Growing up on the Iowa/Illinois border, two things were always assured every summer. You spent a lot of time in or around the Mississippi River and the Cubs/Cards rivalry became the big story no matter how each team was playing. Luckily for me I was able to witness the Big Mac/Sosa experience before leaving home [...]

In the handful of hours since the Cardinals lost Game One of the NLDS to the Dodgers, the realization has set in that the Dodgers didn’t play much (if any) better than the hometown club. Sure, they had more timely hits – both with the bat and by the ball – than the Cards, but [...]

I had planned to put this up this morning and never found the time. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your viewpoint), it now serves as a great distraction from the late innings of Game One between the Cards and Dodgers out at Chavez Ravine. Assembled below is a wide-ranging smorgasboard of links culled from across [...]

NLDS St. Louis Cardinals (90-67) versus Los Angeles Dodgers (93-65) NLDS Colorado Rockies (89-68) versus Philadelphia Phillies (91-66) —– Look familiar?  Yeah, me too. Nothing has changed since Tuesday, except these teams won and lost some games respectively. Colorado has effectively clinched the NL Wild Card (Matt Diaz says you’re welcome!), and the Dodgers have [...]

NLDS St. Louis Cardinals (90-66) versus Los Angeles Dodgers (93-64) NLDS Colorado Rockies (88-68) versus Philadelphia Phillies (90-66) —– The Phillies and Dodgers continue to play similar to the Cards, that is, relatively poorly compared to their prior months.  Philly is 4-6 in their last ten, with the Cards and Dodgers both 5-5. Philadelphia would [...]
