As part of yet another great United Cardinal Bloggers project, I give you my top five stories of 2008 as pertains to the St Louis Cardinals. 1.  Lohse signs late, then signs early Kyle Lohse was on the rader of GM John Mozeliak for most of the winter prior to the 2008 season.  Lohse was [...]

Kyle Lohse gets paid

by on October 1, 2008 · 4 comments

Ok, save the “duh” comments.  I know I’m behind the news here. Fact is, my tardiness was somewhat intentional.  I’ve set myself down at the keyboard several times since Sunday night/Monday afternoon, all set to unleash my true thoughts on the Kyle Lohse signing, only to think better of it and continue to read other [...]

UCB: Top 7 Prospects

by on September 7, 2008 · 10 comments

I was asked to take part in a ‘United Cardinal Bloggers‘ project which tasked several of us Cardinal blog writers to list our top seven prospects in the organization.  That was the only instruction, there were no further restrictions.  As such, my list follows: 1.  OF Colby Rasmus – Obviously, any Cardinal prospect list has [...]

The new Danny Haren?

by on September 5, 2008 · 4 comments

Remember the fear most Cardinal fans had (at least I did) when we shipped off an underperforming “once-prospect” for a live bullpen arm at the deadline? Don’t look now, but Anthony Reyes has posted a 2.01 ERA in five starts for the Cleveland Indians. From Jayson Stark at ESPN.com: Ask for a Reyes: Speaking of [...]

Apparently Jarrod Washburn has been informed by the Seattle Mariners that he was placed on waivers and some team has claimed him.  The claiming team has yet to be outed, but by waiver rules, the Mariners can work out a deal with the claiming team. Could we be seeing Washburn in a Cardinal uniform soon?  [...]

I’m sure a lot of you have seen this list before, but I just saw it yesterday for the first time, so I’m going to force it upon you again. Now, obviously Sabermetrics is something not every baseball fan necessarily follows nor understands, but nevertheless, some of the basics ring true for basic baseball knowledge.  [...]

Fresh off of a two-inning, one hit, no runs performance yesterday afternoon, Jason Isringhausen is hopefully feeling a little better about himself. I hope that Tony doesn’t feel the same. Sure, Izzy finally put together some pitches, even throwing most for strikes. This does not in the slightest form mean that he should be allowed [...]

Going to bed early

by on August 6, 2008 · 0 comments

You may have noticed by the lack of my wit and knowledge around here that I have already, by the middle of the week, had one of the longest weeks of the year to date.  Work is keeping me hectic and on-the-go.  Last night, that was a blessing in disguise. Having already listened to the [...]

Before I get too far in, I will preface this post by saying these things: I am not a huge Chris Duncan fan.  I think he is a minus on defense (in the outfield – he doesn’t get enough innings at 1B to make that a reason why he’s on the club).  I can’t stand [...]

Lohse-and-behold

by on July 18, 2008 · 0 comments

Can we get Kyle Lohse All-Star recognition retroactively? What else does he have to do? Lohse outdueled San Diego ace Jake Peavy last night by going seven innings on 107 pitches. He gave up two runs, one with a rocky start in the first inning and one on former Cardinal farm hand Edgar Gonzalez‘ home [...]
