On the morning of January 19th, I started collecting links – as many as I can find with minimal effort – that discuss the Albert Pujols contract discussions. Why? Who knows, yet here they are.

Seriously.  Give this some thought.  Albert Pujols is currently 45th on the all-time hr list with 408.  Alex Rodriguez is currently 6th with 613.  Albert will play his age 31 season in 2011, and A-Rod will play his age 35 season at the same time.  By the time Albert retires, do you think that he’ll [...]

[Ed. note: Once or twice throughout the season, the United Cardinal Bloggers undertake a roundtable discussion via e-mail that involves and answers various questions from the bloggers taking part over the course of a few weeks.

This one fell into my lap, and who am I to not to jump at the chance to get everyone’s feelings… The Monday (10.26) night Radio Show was just the start, and the UCB crew takes a lot of pride in our work. With that being said, how much of a circus is it going [...]

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. Tampa Bay Rays over Los [...]

Back for another day of predictions, and today we move into the Senior Circuit to explore the NL East. Philadelphia Phillies – Hard to pick against a team that won the World Series in 2008 and should be as strong if not better this season.  They will have a full season of Joe Blanton in [...]

Joe Posnanski has done it again.  The most recent issue of Sports Illustrated has Poz’s sit-down interview with Albert Pujols, addressing (what else) his stance and defiance about steroid use.  It is an excellent read, and I advise any Cardinal fan to read it through. Now, I realize that recent history and the now-fractured trust [...]
