With MLB nearing the end of the midsummer night’s bad dream, some members of Cardinal Nation have turned their respective attentions to ways to improve an already solid team enough to push it past the Reds and Pirates in the NL Central.  Some seem ready to consider just about anything, some want a big time [...]

Happy Father’s Day to all of you dads. I spent the mid-afternoon of my Father’s Day at the local swimming hole with the young boy PH8 and Wife PH8 – who, bless her heart, advised me to start the Cards game from the beginning once we returned home and nap-time had ensued. *sigh* Little did [...]

It’s not personal.  It’s business.  The St. Louis Cardinals do not need Roy Oswalt right now.  They may need him sometime down the road, but they really don’t need him right at this very moment.  Some people would have you believe otherwise, but it’s always easier when spending other people’s money.  Consider the pitchers that [...]

The Cardinals’ release of veteran non-roster invitees Alex Cora and Koyie Hill on Sunday wasn’t the type of transaction that jumps off the computer screen at you, but it was another signal of how the organization has changed in recent years. Five years ago, and perhaps even more recently, Cora and/or Hill probably would have [...]

If you are interested in a time-consuming yet meaningless exercise involving baseball and geeky numbers, then you have come to the right place.  If you are interested in silly Photoshop artwork involving baseball players, media members, and sometimes farm animals, you have also come to the right place.  For the latter, you may need to [...]

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 [...]

That’s Plausidiculous

Admit it.  Y’all have already huddled around water coolers, in break rooms, or gathered for drinks after work to discuss the state of the Cardinals more than once recently and discussed bringing back Berkman, Albert’s contract, and/or the state of TLR’s mental health.  That’s all well and good, but how many of you did your homework [...]

Runner’s Indifference

Darn the limitations of the 25 man roster.  If ever there was a year the Cardinals could use a 30 man roster, it’s 2011.  It’s not that the team would be all that much better (it probably would), it’s just that it would probably be a bit more fun to watch.  Take Matt Carpenter for [...]

Proceed With Caution

The Cardinals looked great in a 10-4 dismantling of the Twins, and they didn’t even bring out the “big guns”, Holliday and Pujols.  Skip Schumaker is hitting .385, Matt Carpenter is hitting .375, Daniel Descalso .333, Colby Rasmus .381, Jon Jay .375, Allen Craig .364, Mark Hamilton .348, Yadier Molina .357, and David Freese is [...]

Riverboat Gambler

“You got to know when to hold ‘em, know when to fold ‘em Know when to walk away and know when to run” ~Kenny Rogers (The Gambler) Those words of wisdom probably apply just as well to free agency as they do to poker, and there are certainly some parallels to be drawn.  You can’t win every [...]
