Our initial goal was to have this series done by say…Turkey Day or so but in my mind President’s Day makes a lot more sense. And here’s why — the Cardinals had no clue how the last three months were going to play out and the results to me were still going to be skewed [...]

[Ed. note - As part of our vacation reading, I asked my Twitter buddy Jake Wagman, political reporter for the St Louis Post-Dispatch, to do a Q&A with us.  Happily, Jake obliged.  Extensively.  We couldn't have asked for better responses.  Jake gave us some great insight into the political workings that go along with a [...]

Let’s see if I can remember who I picked to win divisions in the previous posts… AL Playoffs Cleveland Indians over New York Yankees When Alex Rodriguez struggles upon his return from hip surgery, ultimately shutting it down in September, the window opens for the Evil Empire to go down.

Everyone knows and acknowledges that one of the Cardinals’ priorities heading into this season was finding middle [...]

Put aside for a minute the fact that he wants to be traded (or for that matter, thinks he’s a tradeable commodity at this point). Adam Kennedy had another ho-hum two-for-four last night with one run batted in.  The effort raised his season batting average to .271. Sure, he’s not hitting for power, as his [...]

I received an e-mail over the weekend from Alex Eisenberg over at Baseball-Intellect.com, alerting me to his analysis of Nico Vasquez‘ swing and projections going forward. From Eisenberg’s article Scouting Cardinals Prospect Niko Vasquez: Vasquez is coordinated and fairly agile with a strong arm at the shortstop position, but questions about his overall foot speed [...]

I’m sure a lot of you have seen this list before, but I just saw it yesterday for the first time, so I’m going to force it upon you again. Now, obviously Sabermetrics is something not every baseball fan necessarily follows nor understands, but nevertheless, some of the basics ring true for basic baseball knowledge.  [...]
