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 [...]

  The scuttlebutt is that the Cardinals and Yadier Molina are set to seal the deal on a 5 yr / $75M contract extension that should keep YadiMo in St. Louis for most of the remainder of his career.  The question that seems to be on an awful lot of minds now is “Did the [...]

Well, it’s unofficially official now.  The long national nightmare is finally over.  Roy Oswalt has finally decided that playing baseball right now does not sound nearly as much fun as staying at home and playing with his Tonka trucks in his own sandbox. Instead of joining one of the potential contenders that came calling, Oswalt [...]

Under Construction

  There is no questioning the results thus far.  Cardinals’ GM John Mozeliak has built a good track record during his time with the team.  Is there a method to his madness?  Maybe.  He may not have a printed set of blueprints for building a team, but he certainly seems to have an idea of [...]

New Year’s resolutions typically fall into the same category as making your bed every morning – tremendous wastes of time.  By the time December 31st rolls around, how many people even can recall all the resolutions they made?  Instead of focusing on that marathon you never really intend to run, the 20 pounds you won’t make [...]

Can You Hear Me Now?

Tony LaRussa called down to the bullpen while Octavio Dotel was struggling with the whole “making good pitches” thing, and he asked that Jason Motte start warming up.  Somehow, the Cardinal bullpen coach, Derek Lilliquist, allegedly heard “Rzepcynski” instead of “Motte”.  Astutely, LaRussa saw that Motte was not the one warming up, and he called [...]

Evidently being the favorite just doesn’t suit the 2011 edition, so it is back to square one as far as these Cardinals are concerned. And as much as it pains me to write this, I wouldn’t want it any other way. St. Louis gets to go out with a bang, fitting since the opposite can [...]

3 and Out

by on September 26, 2011 · 7 comments

“You can’t ask for anything more than to be playing meaningful games in September with a chance to make the playoffs.” ~Practically every player/coach/manager on a team about to miss the playoffs. Boom goes the dynamite, people.  I sincerely hope that the folks in the video department for the Cardinals took time to piece together [...]

Hope everyone is enjoying the colder weather now that the dog days appear over and the playoff race still smolders away. On another key front, today is one of my all time favorites for the United Cardinal Bloggers. While normally this would be a week-long process for me, I am choosing to take a simple [...]

With the toughest August in memory over, it brought us that much closer to Albertpalooza. No matter what happens in the next three weeks to the Cardinals, even a miracle run to the playoffs will bring the inevitable. Nick alluded to it earlier on Twitter and the upcoming frenzy will have major repercussions not only in St. [...]
