David Freese

Folks seemed to appreciate having the Letterman and Leno clips here yesterday, I figured I’d put up the video of David Freese making the rounds, this time appearing with Ellen DeGeneres. Turns out, his visit there was part of a larger story that’s been going on between Ellen and some local Cardinals fans. (I’m admittedly [...]

I’m guessing that most of you saw Tony La Russa on The Late Show with David Letterman and David Freese on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night when they aired, but for those looking for a one-stop shop to view both, here you go. Tony and Dave (CBS edited their video, this isn’t [...]

World Series Game Seven’s are best watched from the edge of a seat. I learned that last night as the Cardinals slowly, systematically – thankfully – secured their eleventh World Championship in franchise history. What a game. What a series. What a season. The Texas Rangers were the perfect, formidable foe for this season’s Fall [...]

“What are you doing here?” Tony La Russa to Lance Lynn, Game 5 It’s been a punch line since Monday night, but viewed in a different light, that line – that question – is really a microcosm of how the Cardinals’ 2011 season has turned out, no?

[ED Note: I received an e-mail this morning containing an unsolicited story of one Cardinal fan's recollection of how he watched the Cardinals defeat the Rangers in Game 6 of the World Series.  PH8 Reader Matt led off the e-mail with this: "I had to sit down and type out my thoughts about last night.

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 [...]

  World Series Swag Bob Gibson, Bruce Sutter, and Adam Wainwright have always commanded attention while on the pitcher’s mound.  When they all took the mound together for ceremonial pitches, it was like watching different 3 points in space-time meeting for just a moment.  Geeky?  Yes.  Awesome?  Absolutely.  For a fleeting instant, I almost wanted [...]

Been collecting links (and a few other goodies) all day in the interest of sharing with you loyal three readers… Patrick Rishe writes at Forbes.com that he believes the Cards’ deep run into the playoffs and World Series appearance further cements the chances that Albert Pujols will re-sign with St. Louis. At the Mariners blog [...]

I’ll admit that my interest in the Rangers this year was primarily due to the fact that I had CJ Wilson, Matt Harrison, Colby Lewis, Alexi Ogando, David Murphy, and Mitch Moreland each on a fantasy baseball team at one time or another.  Following them more closely than ever, I could help but have a [...]

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 [...]
