Spend Baby Spend

In player payroll alone, the 2011 St. Louis Cardinals cost somewhere around $126.3M, and you may be hard-pressed to find anybody who thinks that the Cardinals failed to get a decent return on that investment.  The publicity that accompanies a playoff run alone is probably worth millions in advertising and marketing dollars.  Win it all [...]

  No, it isn’t THAT kind of fantasy.  It’s “fantasy baseball”, and it might be the only time that most Cardinal fans worry about a player’s “bulging…….disc” or a player “experiencing stiffness” during spring training.  Sure, a lot of fans are concerned about Allen Craig‘s post-surgical rehab work, but only a fantasy baseball nut would [...]

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 [...]

The Man vs The Mang

by on March 9, 2012 · 0 comments

  It’s one on one.  Mano a mano.  There can be only 1.  It’s Stan Musial versus Albert Pujols.  One is a legend from another time, and the other is a legend in his own time.  There is no wrong answer (unless you pick Albert).  Seriously, it’s time to really have a clash of the [...]

If you are interested in a time-consuming yet meaningless exercise involving baseball and geeky numbers, then you have come to the right place.  If you are interested in silly Photoshop artwork involving baseball players, media members, and sometimes farm animals, you have also come to the right place.  For the latter, you may need to [...]

Plea Deal

by on February 11, 2012 · 1 comment

Each year usually just prior to the beginning of baseball season, I make a short wishlist of all the things I wish the Cardinals would do throughout the year.  Items like “Win the World Series” seem pretty obvious and do not belong on this wishlist.  “Sweep the Cubs” is nearly just as obvious.  See for [...]

FIP’ing The Birds

Pitching wins championships.  Defense wins championships.  The best defense is a good offense.  A watched pot never boils. These cliches make some sense, but there is no absolute truth to be found among them.  The Cardinals won the 2011 World Series with something short of a stellar defense, but it would be woefully inaccurate to [...]

Cardinals pitching coach and resident Jedi Master, Dave Duncan, has taken a leave of absence from the team due to “family reasons”.  As a fan of baseball, the Cardinals, and the man himself, I sincerely wish him and his family nothing but the best.  His wife, Jeanine, has been involved in a well-documented fight with [...]
