Cardinal Nation

In the “Breaking Bad” series, I attempt to break down raw data about a specific player to try and understand or maybe explain their relative level of success.  Since Joe Kelly has 6 starts at the Major League level under his belt, now seems like a great time to analyze Joe’s body of work for [...]

STARS 4 Baby Reesa

Skip Schumaker – Champion in more than 1 sense… You probably do not know Sean, Jamie, and Reesa Stutzman.  I believe it even less probable that you have heard of Krabbe Leukodystrophy.  Fortunately, Skip Schumaker knows both the family and a little about Krabbe Leukodystrophy.  Even more importantly, Skip has stepped up in a big [...]

When I think of John Francis “Jack” Buck (August 21, 1924 – June 18, 2002) and Darryl Andrew Kile (December 2, 1968 – June 22, 2002), words fail me.  My brain works at creating spontaneous thoughts, but the signals that tell the rest of my body how to operate fail after the one that first [...]

  Perhaps no Cardinals player receives more scrutiny day in, day out for performances in small sample sizes than Tyler Greene.  Greene has no shortage of detractors who have watched him struggle during his stretches at the major league level, and he has a dedicated group of fans who manage to find some reason for [...]

Evidence that many members of Cardinal Nation have already jumped the proverbial shark abounds, and the perception seems greatly deviated from the reality.  The Cardinals remain a division leading team, yet they have recently played like a farm club.  On paper, they still look like a potential playoff team.  On the field, they appear to [...]

At seemingly every opportunity, many baseball media members take the time on Twitter, TV, and sports websites to remind baseball information consumers that Albert Pujols remains in a slump of monumental proportions.  These people almost take delight in delivering bad news, and the degree to which some seem to revel in making these deliveries has [...]

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 [...]

I make no claim regarding my ability to hit a Justin Verlander or a Jason Motte fastball, and I have no illusions about my ability to manage a major league game.  I have a face for radio and a voice for the shower.  I am simply a fan who writes about baseball so that our [...]

Based on the descriptions alone, the Waino in a shower ad probably had the most buzz, but the naked Fredbird under a towel was probably enough to kill that buzz.  Vote anyway, though. If you haven’t seen all the commercials, just click here.  Remember to return to PH8 to vote, though. Also, vote. Follow gr33nazn [...]

Do you like the Cardinals?  Do you like music?  Do you like free stuff? If you answered “yes” to all 3 of the above questions, then you should probably stop talking to websites.  After you stop talking to the interwebz, then consider how cool it would be to win free music performed by a big [...]
