United Cardinal Bloggers

Pitchers Hit Eighth has the distinct honor of calling the third inning action in the United Cardinal Bloggers’ 2013 Progressive Game Blog.  If you’ve not seen one of these things before, here is the gist of it, from the UCB site: If you’ve never read one of our Progressive Game Blogs before, you are in [...]

For the third straight season, the United Cardinal Bloggers were guests in St. Louis and in my opinion, the team may even invite us back! It is the least we can do since the win streak was snapped by Pittsburgh. Christi and I made the trip up Saturday to attend the dinner and brought with [...]

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 [...]

As part of our membership in the United Cardinal Bloggers, we frequently participate in various projects throughout the year.  While the “Capture the Virtual Flag”, “Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock”, and the “Rhino in a Hula Hoop” projects aren’t our favorites, we go along with whatever our illustrious leader cooks up for us.  This month [...]

It only seems fair to start off with a big “Thank You” to the St. Louis Cardinals organization for taking the time and making the effort to draw the United Cardinal Bloggers out of basements long enough to attend one of those fancy events where everyone wears pants.  In all seriousness, Ron Watermon, Lindsey Weber, [...]

That’s right.  We’re breaking out the “fancy” sweatpants for a shindig that starts this coming Saturday, and no expense shall be spared in the process (and by that I mean I’m getting my sweatpants dry-cleaned for the occasion).  The Cardinals have plans to host the United Cardinal Bloggers at Busch Stadium.  Shocking, but the organization [...]

If you follow my Twitter feed or have an unnatural fascination with my references to 8 lb burritos, you have probably seen references made to some of my favorite bloggers in the Cardinal National blogosphere.  I frequently refer to Bob Netherton (@CardinalTales) on Twitter as the “Bob Gibson of Bloggers” due to his engaging way [...]

Following last night’s struggle to hit Johan Santana, I’m not convinced that it’s a great thing for the Cards to come back and face a knuckleballer, but here we go… Top of the first inning Pitching for the Mets, R.A. Dickey Rafael Furcal: Raffy took one pitch for a strike and weakly ground the next [...]

UCB 2012 AL Predictions

by on March 29, 2012 · 0 comments

When a deadline approaches for members of the United Cardinal Bloggers, we take it seriously.  Once the deadline passes, and we have failed to meet said deadline, then we all get serious about taking deadlines seriously.  Eventually we reach a point where someone basically has to force one of us to take one for the [...]

It’s time to decide which Cardinal team moves on from the Musial Region and into the Final Four at the United Cardinal Bloggers site. You can must vote in the other regional finals at Aaron Miles’ Fastball, C70 at the Bat, and I-70 Baseball. As some may have guessed, this region boiled down to a [...]
