United Cardinal Bloggers

After celebrating a very long but exciting day at Busch Stadium for the Blogger event, it became apparent that a tradition needed to be started here for our three loyal readers. The Cardinals put us up in some amazing digs and to honor that a new segment will be running every few weeks (or when [...]

I’m usually hesistant to predict individual awards, because there is about a 20% chance of getting any of them correct, and I’m all about hitting the 1/4 mark.  Then again, this is for the UCB, and I’ll gladly sacrifice quality for quantity in the name of the UCB. American League AL MVP – Robinson Cano [...]

I’m big on the Giants.  Yep, I’m HUGE on the Giants.  Giants Dodgers Padres Rockies Diamondbacks  They’ve got a full year of Buster Posey, Madison Bumgarner, and they’ve got some potential breakthrough talent (Brandon Belt).  Even if Huff drops off a bit this year, they still have the makings of a 95-win team in that [...]

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 [...]

Just when I thought it was safe to venture into my backlog of blog pieces, I remembered the December project for the United Cardinal Bloggers (UCB).  The project is the top 5 stories of 2010 in Cardinals baseball, and it shouldn’t be a difficult piece to write. 5.  Cardinals sign Albert Pujols to mega-deal extension [...]

Bottom of the 9th

by on November 22, 2010 · 0 comments

It’s the bottom of the 9th, and I’ve been brought into the game to seal the deal with a 10 run lead.  That’s how I would describe the last couple months at PH8.  I wasn’t around for most of the year, so I deserve very little credit for PH8′s UCB award win for “Best Team [...]

Twitter Mailbag

In the short period of time that I’ve been contributing here at PH8, I’ve noticed that about half of my new Twitter followers are #stlcards fans.  Approximately 3-4 times each week, one of these new followers will tweet or dm an interesting sports question that requires a bit of time to reply, and 140 characters [...]
