Lucky Number 7

As part of our membership in the United Cardinal Bloggers, we frequently participate in various projects throughout the year.  While the “Capture the Virtual Flag”, “Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock”, and the “Rhino in a Hula Hoop” projects aren’t our favorites, we go along with whatever our illustrious leader cooks up for us.  This month [...]

By The Numbers

153 games down and 9 to go with the Cardinals owning a 2 1/2 game lead over the Brewers for the 2nd wild card spot in the National League.  Ironically, that’s exactly the same advantage that the Braves held last year over the Cardinals with 9 games to play.  That didn’t work out so well [...]

David Freese and Yadier Molina both hit the 20 HR mark last night.  Based on the practically palpable excitement on the internets, this must have been a record or something.  It was.  The St. Louis Cardinals as a franchise has been around since prehistoric times – 1882 to be exact (that’s what we call the [...]

Work Excuses for Friday

by on September 18, 2012 · 4 comments

Feeling like you may have a touch of the 96-hour flu coming on?  Have a tummy ache that seems destined to make you feel tethered to your bathroom for a few days?  Decided you cannot possibly miss Chris Carpenter’s return to the rotation at 1:20pm on Friday against the Cubs?  Wait….wut? Obviously Mike Matheny wasn’t [...]

Vote for Skip

No kidding around this time.  Just click the link and vote for Skip.  Skip Schumaker is the nominee representing the Cardinals in the annual Marvin Miller Man of the Year Award voting.  Maybe you have no idea who Marvin Miller was.  Maybe you know nothing about the award.  That’s fine.  Please vote for Skip anyway.  [...]

It only seems fair to start off with a big “Thank You” to the St. Louis Cardinals organization for taking the time and making the effort to draw the United Cardinal Bloggers out of basements long enough to attend one of those fancy events where everyone wears pants.  In all seriousness, Ron Watermon, Lindsey Weber, [...]

That’s right.  We’re breaking out the “fancy” sweatpants for a shindig that starts this coming Saturday, and no expense shall be spared in the process (and by that I mean I’m getting my sweatpants dry-cleaned for the occasion).  The Cardinals have plans to host the United Cardinal Bloggers at Busch Stadium.  Shocking, but the organization [...]

Indeed, as the marketing campaign for the Cardinals says, “We Are Cardinal Nation”.  At least that’s what I’ve been hearing.  Seems a bit pompous at times, but I suppose winning the World Series of American Baseball entitles the victor to a short bombastic honeymoon. If you only see the officially released campaign material, you might [...]

Riddle Me This

Riddle me that.  Who was sitting in the dugout with Descalso at-bat? Allen Craig. Granted, Mike Matheny chose Daniel Descalso to pinch run for the hobbled Craig in a close game in hopes of gaining a speed advantage on the bases.  Certainly, few would argue that Craig can best Descalso in a foot race, but [...]

Need a reason to get out and do something the night of August 20th?  Some guy named Jason Motte is going to be doing an autograph signing at Chesterfield Baseball Cards according to this page.  Of course, the page lists the day as “Saturday, August 20, 2012″, so maybe Jason’s calendar isn’t the same as [...]
