Joel Pineiro and seven innings

by Nick August 7, 2008

Cardinal starting pitcher Joel Pineiro gave the team a much needed seven inning start last night against the Dodgers.  Pineiro wasn’t particularly sharp early, surrendering three runs in the first three innings, but the big Cardinal fourth inning – puntuated by back-to-back home runs by Albert Pujols and Ryan Ludwick (is there an internal MVP [...]

Viva Chris Perez

by Nick August 6, 2008

First big-league save tonight for Chris Perez! This was a big one for the Cards, and it was even of the multiple inning variety (1 2/3)! Perez bailed out the bullpen after a marvelous seven inning start by Joel Pineiro.  My boy Brad Thompson was ineffective in one-third of an inning, proving I should never [...]

Going to bed early

by Nick August 6, 2008

You may have noticed by the lack of my wit and knowledge around here that I have already, by the middle of the week, had one of the longest weeks of the year to date.  Work is keeping me hectic and on-the-go.  Last night, that was a blessing in disguise. Having already listened to the [...]

Cards sign Felipe Lopez

by Nick August 6, 2008

The Cardinals claimed infielder Felipe Lopez off of waivers from the Washington Nationals late last night.  Lopez can play second base, shortstop, and third base.  It is also purported that he can play outfield, but I’d prefer he stay within the diamond. This is kind of a ‘bleh’ move, certainly not one to overwhelm the [...]

And the Magic Number is…

by StLCards August 5, 2008

5 Pretty obvious that the number 5 would be significant for the Cardinals as one of the best hitters in the game wears that number for the Redbirds. But I’m talking about another number 5. This goes back to a post game interview when the bullpen let yet another game slip away. In that interview [...]

Sunday Spitballs – 08.02.08

by Nick August 3, 2008

My apologies for the lack of posts the last few days, a spotty internet outage has kept me barely connected. Dear Russ Springer: Shane Victorino murdered that pitch the first time you threw it. What made you think it was a good idea to throw it again? My man-crush on Ryan Ludwick is growing by [...]

Brad Thompson saves the day

by Nick July 31, 2008

Is there a statistic for a guy who comes in, usually in long relief, and just continues to give his team a chance to win, often times following a short start (whether because of injury or poor performance)? If so, I’d be willing to bet that Brad Thompson would have a favorable number in that [...]
