Around this same time last year as part of the annual UCB project to make predictions for all 6 divisions, I not-so-boldly picked the top three as the Brewers, Cardinals, and the Reds (see here for proof).  Based on the individual rosters, it wasn’t difficult to put those three in order.  It was actually the [...]

If you look at what the Philadelphia Phillies have done in the past 5 seasons, you might be tempted to think that they are a lock for a playoff spot.  Starting in 2007, the Phillies won 89, 92, 93, 97, and 102 games.  This year’s team is not any of those teams by any stretch [...]

Having read some of the other great lists posted at the other United Cardinal Blogger sites today, it’s both clear to me and worries me a bit that I’ve interpreted the assignment differently. Not convinced that’s a good or a bad thing, I’ve decided to press forward with my own interpretation and list.

Yeah, I’m a little behind on this one – so what, wanna fight about it? 5. Chris Carpenter and Roy Halladay go fishing I’ve been told, over and over and over and over again, that this was a thing. And then Doc saved someone from a snake and Carp busted up his toe. Story! (You [...]

If you haven’t already seen Dennis and Josh’s ballots for the Cardinal Blogger Awards, please take a minute to read those as well. Below is my ballot – we elected to have three different ballots so that we could all express our own opinions without having to argue which way to direct a single PH8 [...]
