Reading a couple of posts over at STLCardinalBaseball this weekend led me into a bit of a debate with Ray over whether the Cardinals routinely pay market value for their players or not.  Spurred on by the ongoing discussions about what market value may look like for one Yadier Molina, Ray took a look at [...]

Since “Gr33nazn’s 2011 Fantasy Baseball Guide” was incredibly popular with all 3 of our loyal readers, I felt compelled to do another one.  Actually, that does not mean that I’m doing another 2011 guide, because that would be silly.  No, I’m updating the guide for 2012, and this time there will indeed be more cowbell.  [...]

How fitting that in the “Year of the Pitcher” we would be tasked with casting a ballot for the Baseball Bloggers Alliance’s Walter Johnson Award, choosing the top pitcher of the season for the National League. Thankfully, this award is also based upon the regular season, which keeps us within the “Year of the Pitcher” [...]

Give me just one good reason to not pick the Phillies, and I wouldn’t pick the Phillies here.  The Braves could push the Phillies, but the Phillies still have a margin for error that no other team in the division has.  They also have nearly twice the payroll that the Braves have, so we’re not [...]

This piece was originally titled “World’s Worst 5×5 Fantasy League Baseball Guide for Spork Users“, but I determined that was decidely too pessimistic and catered to a very small audience (spork users).  It was also a ridiculously long title, so I abandoned it in favor of something a bit easier to remember.  Keep in mind [...]

  Seriously, why not consider one Clifton Phifer Lee?  You’ve probably heard of him.  After all, Cliff Lee does own a postseason batting average of .308 which is pretty darn good.  Oh, and he can pitch pretty well, too.  Yeah, he can really pitch.  Try 7-2 with a 2.12 ERA in the playoffs.  For his [...]

UCB Roundtable November 1st

by on November 1, 2010 · 1 comment

On Friday, October 29th, the team here at PH8 had an opportunity to fire off a question for the United Cardinal Blogger roundtable, and I gave it my best shot.  I went for a really nasty 12-6 curveball, but I hung it over the middle of the plate, instead.  Naturally, the UCB participants drilled it, [...]
