Well, of course, the Play Index at [...]

Wa-hey!  That’s a winner! After another frustrating night on offense from the Cardinals (don’t know about you, but I find it virtually impossible to tell anymore if the Cardinal lineup is that bad, or if we are just seeing great pitching each night – let’s call it both), the Cards finally were able to make [...]

With the 19th selection of the 2009 Major League Baseball First Year Player Draft, the St. Louis Cardinals have selected right-handed pitcher Shelby Miller, from Brownwood High School in Brownwood, TX. ‘Round here we know better than to step on the toes of the fine folks over at Future Redbirds, who have far more knowledge [...]

Yeah, I know…it’s not really reveille when it goes off at 4pm.  Consider this the “sleeping in” version of the Reveille… —– Ryan Ludwick hits the shelf.  Todd Wellemeyer gets creamed.  Lineup still not hitting.  Cards and Pirates are on the verge of combustion during this series via the beanball.

Cardinal fans, pray for good results from the MRI done on Kyle Lohse’s right knee yesterday.  What looked like an innocent tweak of the ankle and a stubborn starter trying to finish five and get the win quickly turned into another waiting and wishing game for Cardinal fans. Where do they go if Lohse winds [...]

Albert Pujols is hitting .714 – think he can keep up that pace? That might be a record or something. So much for his slow start after a down spring. —– Tonight was the first time I saw Skip Schumaker in live-action at second base. He didn’t look bad, save for that monster of a [...]

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 [...]
