Once again the United Cardinal Bloggers are undertaking our fall Roundtable discussions via e-mail. Josh will be moderating a discussion on a question of his own in a few days, so keep an eye out for that. My question to the group has already made the rounds, and there were some interesting (and some predictable) [...]

A fun way to waste time

We’ve featured the work of Batting Stance Guy here before. Of course, that was before he was BattingStanceGuy.com ™. (We think.) Well, the Guy was on the field with the Cardinals and Dodgers last week during the West Coast swing, and he got to tell Manny Ramirez to “hang on a sec”.  Good stuff. BattingStanceGuy.com [...]

In another game that many would argue the 2008 Cardinals didn’t have a chance in, the 2009 Redbirds emerge victorious to win another series against the Dodgers, their fifth win this season in the seventh and final regular season matchup with the NL West leaders. Notes Adam Wainwright was brilliant early, then seemed as if [...]

Anyone following the Cardinals of late, or at least since the two most recent trades, is well aware that Julio Lugo and Matt Holliday are really hitting well right now.  Just how well? Holliday:  .529/.609/.824 in 23 plate appearances. Holliday has yet to hit his first Cardinal home run, but five of his nine hits [...]

I had to laugh at the headline link on ESPN.com (that’s the Eastern Seaboard Promotion Network, for those of us in the Midwest) after Tuesday night’s Cardinals – Tigers game. The Cards exploded on offense, plating all eleven of their runs by the end of the sixth inning. Albert Pujols had a fine game by [...]

Earlier this week, Fox Sports Midwest studio anchor and co-host of the “Parris and Burwell” radio show Pat Parris posted to his blog on the 101 ESPN website, indicating he had the answer for the Cardinals’ offensive struggles. Please, Pat, do tell! Instant Help For Offense…Bat Pitcher 9th With a title like that, it seemed [...]

Who were those masked men last night? What got into the Cardinal bats? More importantly, will Tony actually stick with the lineup for a second day to try and keep the spark going?  [Ed. note - A: No.  Rasmus will sit today versus a left-handed starter, Andrew Miller.  Lots of right-handed hitters in there today.] [...]

May 23rd, 2009 – Kansas City Royals @ St Louis Cardinals Cardinals 5, Royals 0 Well, if it weren’t for the goings on of the eighth inning (which you can find over at Fungoes), the ninth inning would’ve been an uneventful and good end to the ballgame for the Cardinals. Indeed, the game wrap-up had [...]
