PH8 signs two free agents

by on December 14, 2011 · 3 comments

Well, I guess that’s not actually true – they’re not really free agents, but rather, mercenaries adding to their list of websites being infiltrated by their great work. In addition to the great work Dennis and Josh do here at PH8, I’m happy to announce that we’ve somehow conned accomplished baseball minds and writers Dayn [...]

Yep, that’s right, Pitchers Hit Eighth has reached the 600 Post Club.  I’m not sure what that means, if anything, other than Dennis has been writing a lot lately. Dennis’ post “Encyclopedia Brown and the Case of the B12 Bobbleheads” this morning was number 600. Consequently, the “milestone” offers me the opportunity to thank Dennis [...]

See what I did there?  A baseball pun? Today marks the second birthday (or anniversary, however you look at it) of this humble little site. In May 2008, I led things off with a post that really had nothing to do with the Cardinals – “Soriano = Zito?” – which is strangely being made to [...]

The doldrums of winter, with no regular baseball to watch, generally lends itself to filling time with something other than writing – if for no other reason than a lack of things to write about.

Josh and I are [...]

Not much to look at here, my apologies – but I wanted to bring up a few loose ends that had escaped my posting here recently… —– I did a Q&A with Simon on Sports in December called “Blogging the Off-season” where Simon asked several bloggers from all of the MLB teams some questions about [...]

Please Welcome Josh to PH8

As the Cardinals steam toward the playoffs and Cardinal fans search for more information and news, demanding more information about their team, the challenge to keep fresh content here on the site for our loyal readers (all three of you) continues to increase. With that in mind (and an eye toward yours truly getting more [...]

New PH8 Archives page

by on August 4, 2009 · 0 comments

So while I was watching Albert Pujols pulverize a ball into the left-center field stands at Citi Field during the tenth inning of tonights Cards-Mets game, I took the time to put together a fancy new archives page. Since the redesign, a main source of archives was missing, and I wouldn’t want to deprive you [...]
