Chris Duncan

If you needed any more evidence to back up our prior assertion that Chris Duncan is one of the more polarizing players of recent Cardinal history, you need only read the wide variety and massive number of St Louis mainstream media pieces, blog posts, and message board threads on the Duncan-Julio Lugo trade. For every [...]

Well, are you a Cardinal fan that rejoices at this news or one that laments the treatment Chris Duncan received in St Louis? Do you think Duncan never got a fair shake, or that he never had to actually make the team? Will Lil’ Dunc ever become the hitter his potential showed in 2006 and [...]

I had to laugh at the headline link on ESPN.com (that’s the Eastern Seaboard Promotion Network, for those of us in the Midwest) after Tuesday night’s Cardinals – Tigers game. The Cards exploded on offense, plating all eleven of their runs by the end of the sixth inning. Albert Pujols had a fine game by [...]

Well, judging by the title, this should be a fun exercise, no? Good thing: Colby Rasmus going three-for-four with a home run, double, single, a run scored and one batted in. Bad thing: Dan and Al going on incessantly about how Rasmus “only needs a triple for the cycle” following the single to put him [...]

Today we take part in another United Cardinal Bloggers project, choosing a side of a debate topic to, well, debate with another member of the UCB blogging syndicate. My very worthy adversary today is Andrea over at Baseball Digest.  We will be arguing politely discussing the merits of resigning center fielder Rick Ankiel at the [...]

No, not *this* The Outfield, but rather the 2009 Cardinals outfield.  What do you imagine Rick Ankiel was thinking to himself watching his mates bang around a bunch of hits yesterday while he continues to struggle at the plate?  Colby Rasmus continues to look more comfortable at the plate, while flashing the leather in center [...]

Today marks that usual part of the year where we try like hell not to be homers, and usually fail to some extent.  Without further delay, our predictions for the NL Central standings in 2009: Chicago Cubs – Anyone not picking the Cubs at the top of this division is fooling themselves (sorry Sarah!).  That’s [...]

Those of you listening to 1380 in St Louis today may find this duplicative, same if you read Bernie’s Press Box over at the STLToday forums. If you fit into neither of those groups, this may provide helpful for you.  I listened to Bernie’s segment with Cardinals GM John Mozeliak this afternoon, and there were [...]

It just so happens lots of interesting things have been dropped onto our desk in recent days, so figured why not share with the loyal readers (all three of you). Without further ado, the linkage: Braden Looper was scratched from another spring start for the Brewers because of a bad oblique.  I wish Braden all [...]
