Boston Red Sox

If you saw any baseball on this same day in 2011, you undoubtedly remember at least some sense of euphoria or bitter disappointment, or maybe even both simultaneously.  Game 162 for a good portion of the teams in MLB usually amounts to either one last opportunity to see prospects in game action or a chance [...]

UCB 2012 AL Predictions

by on March 29, 2012 · 0 comments

When a deadline approaches for members of the United Cardinal Bloggers, we take it seriously.  Once the deadline passes, and we have failed to meet said deadline, then we all get serious about taking deadlines seriously.  Eventually we reach a point where someone basically has to force one of us to take one for the [...]

Not The News – Vol X

2011 World Series MVP David Freese is actually Chuck Norris, and he’s a bad man.  After several viewers contacted us to report about some “irregularities” in the images of Freese shown on television, we naturally felt compelled to investigate.  After running several still shots through a complex digital filtering process involving both “copy” and “paste”, [...]

Well, it’s unofficially official now.  The long national nightmare is finally over.  Roy Oswalt has finally decided that playing baseball right now does not sound nearly as much fun as staying at home and playing with his Tonka trucks in his own sandbox. Instead of joining one of the potential contenders that came calling, Oswalt [...]

UCB – AL Projections

by on March 21, 2011 · 1 comment

This might be my favorite United Cardinal Bloggers project ever, because I wrote this back in December of 2010.  Copy/paste and voila: American League East – Boston Red Sox.  The Red Sox finished last season 7 games behind the Rays with a record of 89-73.  Fortunately, they just added Adrian Gonzalez and Carl Crawford to [...]

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. Oh, and to serve you all, our three loyal readers! The Daily Pujols certainly won’t be a comprehensive list, but between [...]

Iraq was all everyone wanted to talk about in my family the summer of 2004. I much rather wanted to talk about how St. Louis was putting together one of the greatest regular seasons in my lifetime. But as most things work out, the war effort did get most of the attention no matter how [...]

PH8 across the interwebs

by on July 25, 2009 · 6 comments

We showed up on a couple other outposts in the blogosphere lately… MVN Outsider carried our Cardinals Trade Deadline Preview just a few hours before the big Matt Holliday trade. One of my favorite parts of that post? As protective as Cardinals management has been of their minor-league system, I can’t see them parting with [...]

If you needed any more evidence to back up our prior assertion that Chris Duncan is one of the more polarizing players of recent Cardinal history, you need only read the wide variety and massive number of St Louis mainstream media pieces, blog posts, and message board threads on the Duncan-Julio Lugo trade. For every [...]
