The Cardinals just traded Zach Cox for Edward Mujica which naturally produced a “They did what to whom for how many cows?” response.  Obviously, this was not the megadeal many in Cardinal Nation were looking for, but it certainly has potential to be significantly better than nothing.  For the record, Cox was not exactly tearing [...]

The Brewers went out and traded for Francisco Rodriguez (K-Rod) from the Mets.  That means that the Cardinals need to respond with a trade of their own, right?  Wrong.  The team’s needs haven’t changed just because one of their main competitors for the division title made a move.  Instead, the management team will see the [...]

Because I’m a glutton for punishment, I’m trying to start up a daily morning post that will allow me to put up short tidbits (in addition to Twitter, Facebook, the UCB site, etc) on my thoughts from the previous night’s game, news and notes, etc. I’m trying to keep things fresh for the loyal readers [...]

While some of these wouldn’t necessarily qualify as a “move” in most minds, here are – in my opinion – the most influential moves/non-moves/transactions made by the Cardinals’ brass during the 2008 calendar year.  (In no particular order.) Trade Scott Rolen for Troy Glaus. I still wonder to this day if John Mozeliak fell out [...]

Kyle McClellan and closing?

by on January 15, 2009 · 1 comment

…and we continue. It’s no secret that I’m against (and on the record as such) attempting to make Kyle McClellan a starting pitcher. If the Cardinals want to do anything with McClellan other than the middle relief role he seems so well-suited for, why not this suggestion from my post McClellan to the rotation? Why?? [...]

Today brought us some great posts across the Cardinal blogosphere, not so indirectly focused toward an article that appeared yesterday in the St Louis Post-Dispatch. I don’t have a lot to add to what Pip and C70 have already said regarding the venom being spewed toward Cardinal management, nor about the media’s involvement in provoking [...]

Who is left in free agency?

by on January 2, 2009 · 5 comments

Now that Tony LaRussa’s self-proclaimed primary focus in the free agent market has signed on for several millions with the Los Angeles of Anaheim, Orange County, California, USA Angels – where do the Cardinals turn next? The Cardinals have, at least in the opinion of this humble scribe, several holes yet to fill as they [...]

So I’ve been banging these ideas, ‘theories’ if you will, around in my head since the Khalil Greene trade was announced late last week.  I decided that some of them were just too ingenious to keep to myself. Everyone knows and acknowledges that one of the Cardinals’ priorities heading into this season was finding middle [...]

So I’ve been biding my time, waiting, watching, allowing the news to come to me. As I’m sure my loyal readers know (all three of you), it’s been eerily quiet. Let’s catch up with the goings on… First, I wanted to take another opportunity to publicize the debut and continuing development of United Cardinal Bloggers’ [...]

Cardinals need a Holliday

by on November 10, 2008 · 7 comments

Ed. Note: My apologies to PH8 contributor StLCards, who put this post up a few days ago, and I didn’t even realize it was here.  Please read below. —– Last week amidst all the Jake Peavy rumblings I came across a headline that basically indicated the Rockies were now ready to accept less for Holliday.
