Apparently, Skip’s generosity brings all the stars to the yard (or the church in this case).  The host of the charity event “STARS 4 Baby Reesa” worked with some St Louis and Mizzou sports favorites and an incredible team of volunteers from Sunrise UMC to create a miracle.  While the quick takeaway from the charity [...]

I rarely question the veracity of something an ex-MLB player says when he speaks within the sphere of his expertise.  Such is rarely the case with Al Hrabosky, and that is no small secret among fans of Cardinals baseball.  As of late, Hrabosky has taken a certain inexplicable disliking to the way some base runners [...]

Let’s just dispense with the pleasantries and list them all here, shall we? This way, Cards fans have a repository to come back to game after game, without having to continue to come up with new reasons for a lost season. In no particular order: Moths Ryan Franklin Takashi Saito Rob Drake Tony Rasmus Dan [...]

We enter [...]

Yep, my soapbox is bigger than yours is, because it has to be sturdy.  I like to eat 8 lb burritos with a spork while I’m standing on my soapbox, so prepare yourselves.  It’s about to get ugly up in here.  WARNING: A rant is about to take place. I’m sick and tired of people [...]

Well, the game wasn’t really the story last night, was it? It’s still difficult for me to determine exactly when, by watching the various videos of the incident, the young man was tasered, but the lead photo at Deadspin makes it clear that it actually happened. Wonder if a person that would run onto the [...]

Well, judging by the title, this should be a fun exercise, no? Good thing: Colby Rasmus going three-for-four with a home run, double, single, a run scored and one batted in. Bad thing: Dan and Al going on incessantly about how Rasmus “only needs a triple for the cycle” following the single to put him [...]
