2011 World Series

It’s not really necessary for me to include the year is it? David Freese made a name for himself (and probably millions of dollars, soon?) and found himself on the cover – that’s it at the right – of an A+E Networks Home Entertainment/MLB Productions package of one of “Baseball’s Greatest Games: 2011 World Series, [...]

Requiem For A Puma

by on September 12, 2012 · 3 comments

If Lance Berkman‘s knee surgery indeed turns out to be the straw that broke the Big Puma’s back, then so be it.  Berkman can look back at 14 seasons of Major League Baseball with a lot of pride and likely few (if any) regrets.  Rather than soulfully mourn his career with some overly dramatic soliloquy, [...]

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 [...]

The Cardinals won the 2011 World Series and sit at 10 games above the .500 mark, but Olympic Gold Medalist McKayla Maroney is not the least bit impressed.  The “McKayla is not impressed” meme was started shortly after Maroney showed a visible sign of annoyance/displeasure at the XXX Olympics in London.  Since most people expect [...]

Carp Season Over

by on July 3, 2012 · 5 comments

Chris Carpenter will have season-ending surgery which means that he will not throw a truly meaningful pitch in the 2012 season.  Lesser men might call it quits.  Lesser men do not throw a masterpiece together for game 5 of the NLDS while facing Roy Halladay and the Phillies.  Lesser men do not have postseason records [...]

[UPDATE: I've added another video in the comments below, per request. It is also completely awesome. Don't forget to scroll down after you've watched the first one!] This might be the coolest thing you’ll watch all day, especially since the Cardinals are off today. Sent in to PH8 HQ by the video’s creator, identified as [...]

FIP’ing The Birds

by on February 3, 2012 · 0 comments

Pitching wins championships.  Defense wins championships.  The best defense is a good offense.  A watched pot never boils. These cliches make some sense, but there is no absolute truth to be found among them.  The Cardinals won the 2011 World Series with something short of a stellar defense, but it would be woefully inaccurate to [...]

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 [...]

Kudos to the people at A&E Networks Home Entertainment who recognized that the 2011 World Series story would not be complete without discussing the mad dash to the finish, the penultimate game 162, and the defeat of 2 baseball powerhouses en route to the World Series.  Don’t let the title fool you, though.  This DVD set [...]
