Plea Deal

by on February 11, 2012 · 1 comment

Each year usually just prior to the beginning of baseball season, I make a short wishlist of all the things I wish the Cardinals would do throughout the year.  Items like “Win the World Series” seem pretty obvious and do not belong on this wishlist.  “Sweep the Cubs” is nearly just as obvious.  See for [...]

Under Construction

  There is no questioning the results thus far.  Cardinals’ GM John Mozeliak has built a good track record during his time with the team.  Is there a method to his madness?  Maybe.  He may not have a printed set of blueprints for building a team, but he certainly seems to have an idea of [...]

Having read some of the other great lists posted at the other United Cardinal Blogger sites today, it’s both clear to me and worries me a bit that I’ve interpreted the assignment differently. Not convinced that’s a good or a bad thing, I’ve decided to press forward with my own interpretation and list. As such, you’ll [...]

Well, I’ve got 20 minutes of video from Adam Wainwright‘s appearance in the media room today – unfortunately, I’ve got some work to do to figure out how and/or where to upload it. It only occurred to me after the fact that the file size of 20 minutes of HD video is a bit prohibitive [...]

Adam Wainwright’s mesmerizing curveball that froze future teammate Carlos Beltran and ended Game 7 of the 2006 NLCS stands as the iconic image of the Cardinals’ stunning, logic-defying run to the World Series title that year. But if a play were chosen to represent the unlikely nature of that postseason journey, it might have been [...]

  Rumor has it that Carlos Beltran and Rafael Furcal have already made a determination about which player will wear the #15 jersey in 2012.  Technically, Beltran has the rightful claim as a function of his MLB tenure, but it is customary for the incoming player to come to some sort of sordid agreement with [...]

With the promotion of Chris Maloney to the big league staff, the wheels starting turning on how to make the entire organization better. Prized prospect Shelby Miller and his key right arm certainly factor into the decision now that the rest of the chips have fallen into place. (Ed. Note: the regular Friday posts will [...]

It’s that time of the year again, for the United Cardinal Bloggers’ Fall Roundtable discussions.  You can find all of the other question and answer sessions by visiting the UCB site - but yesterday was our turn to do the asking, thus today is the day to do the posting. We asked: It seems with every [...]

3 and Out

“You can’t ask for anything more than to be playing meaningful games in September with a chance to make the playoffs.” ~Practically every player/coach/manager on a team about to miss the playoffs. Boom goes the dynamite, people.  I sincerely hope that the folks in the video department for the Cardinals took time to piece together [...]

Once a year, along with the rest of the United Cardinal Bloggers, we get to put this list together as a review of the Cardinals’ farm system. So far, pretty much every year has been an improvement over the previous. This year is no exception. The Cardinals have multiple prospects on the national radar, and [...]
