In this crazy world of ours, where nuclear war could break out at any moment, one must be ready for the worst at all times. Baseball is no different, and if any team should be doing as many duck-and-cover drills as infield drills, it’s the Cardinals. This is part of the deal when you stock [...]

Get used to that combination, in that order, Cards fans. Something tells me we may see plenty of wins from it this season. Remember when Mitchell Boggs said at the Winter Warm-Up that he “could compete with anybody” and expected himself to be “really good”? I do, and I think Mike Matheny was listening too. [...]

The Cardinals won on Opening Day, hooray! Quite the showcase last night for the Marlins, the City of Miami, and your World Champion Cardinals, eh? Some quick, stream-of-consciousness thoughts this morning: I’m happy for Mike Matheny, and clearly his players are too. Not that I was worried much about it personally, I think winning last [...]

It’s not personal.  It’s business.  The St. Louis Cardinals do not need Roy Oswalt right now.  They may need him sometime down the road, but they really don’t need him right at this very moment.  Some people would have you believe otherwise, but it’s always easier when spending other people’s money.  Consider the pitchers that [...]

The Cardinals’ release of veteran non-roster invitees Alex Cora and Koyie Hill on Sunday wasn’t the type of transaction that jumps off the computer screen at you, but it was another signal of how the organization has changed in recent years. Five years ago, and perhaps even more recently, Cora and/or Hill probably would have [...]

What was initially described as an open competition has now become a two-man fight to see who locks up second base for the Cardinals. Incumbent Skip Schumaker may have been the long shot all along, but another setback all but guarantees St. Louis will again have a new face manning the spot on Opening Day. [...]

If you think back on the Tony La Russa Era of Cardinals baseball (1996-2011), at least one player immediately should spring to mind at each position in the field. Every position, that is, except for one. There’s Yadier Molina at catcher, Scott Rolen at third base, Edgar Renteria at shortstop (or maybe David Eckstein if [...]

UCB Awards – Dennis

by on November 11, 2011 · 3 comments

It’s time.  Yes, it’s time for the UCB (United Cardinal Bloggers) members to pat each other on the back and remind each other just how awesome we think we are.  Okay, I’m exaggerating…slightly.  It is actually time for the UCB members to vote on the various annual awards which honor various people and blogs for [...]

It’s that time of the year again, for the United Cardinal Bloggers’ Fall Roundtable discussions.  You can find all of the other question and answer sessions by visiting the UCB site - but yesterday was our turn to do the asking, thus today is the day to do the posting. We asked: It seems with every [...]
