John Mozeliak on Bernie Miklasz Show today

by Nick March 18, 2009

Those of you listening to 1380 in St Louis today may find this duplicative, same if you read Bernie’s Press Box over at the STLToday forums. If you fit into neither of those groups, this may provide helpful for you.  I listened to Bernie’s segment with Cardinals GM John Mozeliak this afternoon, and there were [...]

Mozeliak, Boras talk about Ankiel contract

by Nick March 13, 2009

Ok, I’m sorry – you probably came here thinking I had a scoop – and for that I apologize.  There’s no scoop, Mo is not working on an extension for Rick Ankiel (that I know about). What I do have is a something I whipped up over at xtranormal.com, a cool little movie maker website, [...]

I’m not afraid to believe in Albert Pujols

by Nick March 12, 2009

Joe Posnanski has done it again.  The most recent issue of Sports Illustrated has Poz’s sit-down interview with Albert Pujols, addressing (what else) his stance and defiance about steroid use.  It is an excellent read, and I advise any Cardinal fan to read it through. Now, I realize that recent history and the now-fractured trust [...]

Link it up! No, YOU link it up!

by Nick March 3, 2009

It just so happens lots of interesting things have been dropped onto our desk in recent days, so figured why not share with the loyal readers (all three of you). Without further ado, the linkage: Braden Looper was scratched from another spring start for the Brewers because of a bad oblique.  I wish Braden all [...]

Rick Ankiel or Nate McLouth?

by Nick March 1, 2009

I came across a post at Pirate Revolution this week comparing the Cardinals to the Pittsburgh Pirates, position by position. It’s a pretty fair evaluation, as a cursory look.  Obviously, it doesn’t take into account positions where advantages are disparate, like Albert Pujols versus pretty much anyone on the planet. There is some amount of [...]

UCB Roundtable and Radio, site updates

by Nick February 24, 2009

The UCB Preseason Roundtable discussions continue, with Deaner over at Cardinal Nation Globe posting today about choices for a franchise building block – Albert Pujols exempted. Tomorrow features a great question from Josh at That’s A Winner – I won’t spoil it, but it’s very pertinent to the Cardinal outlook for coming years. —– Tomorrow [...]
