Cardinals Catch-All 01.30.13

by on January 30, 2013 · 0 comments

Anymore, various stories about the Cardinals and their players come across my inbox faster than I can react to them (for the most part) but I often feel many are worth sharing.  I thought maybe a weekly (or as-dictated by worthy items to report) catch-all post would be the most efficient way to both communicate [...]

If you’re as obsessed about baseball as I am, or many fanatics of the game, you likely already know about the baseball simulation franchise Out of the Park Baseball. Now in it’s thirteenth iteration (OOTP13), the game has evolved from a one-man operation into a major yearly release. As a regular OOTP player (my focus [...]

The Cardinals officially announced Friday that they are adding a third uniform to their wardrobe (yes, uniform – the pants will be Heritage White also) to wear during Saturday home games. Reaction has been swift and divided. Many do not like the departure from the strictly two kit arrangement that has helped define the Cardinals’ [...]

Imagine Facebook minus all the extraneous crap that most people don’t have time to use, kick, or farm.  Then imagine that the slimmed down version of Facebook is solely dedicated to a unique, personalized social networking experience, and you don’t have to worry about security or privacy issues.  Think of it as a combination of [...]

During the recent UCB Weekend in St. Louis, several of us in attendance had an opportunity to sit through a rather well-honed elevator pitch from the folks at Burton History Trees.  I usually don’t listen to a lot of details about business plans, business models, and product design, because my actual job involves far too [...]

I participate in an online multi-player sim league using the game and fictional players, and I [...]

As a long-time Out of the Park Baseball player, when the OOTP Developments team asked me to test their mobile game, iOOTP, of course I was anxious to get my hands on it and check it out.  I spent the majority of my time with the game while on airplanes or otherwise trying to kill [...]

When the folks over at Chartball asked if I’d like to receive and take a look at their latest season history poster, for the World Champion 2011 St. Louis Cardinals, of course I was interested. The poster is an infographic-style presentation of the Cards’ 2011 season and various statistics and milestones from said season. Having [...]

Kudos to the people at A&E Networks Home Entertainment who recognized that the 2011 World Series story would not be complete without discussing the mad dash to the finish, the penultimate game 162, and the defeat of 2 baseball powerhouses en route to the World Series.  Don’t let the title fool you, though.  This DVD set [...]

That’s right.  It’s another of our world famous giveaways.  That’s where we do something really complicated to give away something to one of our 3 loyal readers.  Alternatively, we do something really, really simple to give something away to someone who isn’t one of our 3 loyal readers.  I reviewed the Fantasy Sports Coach app [...]
