I knew I would see them, just as soon as A.J. Pierzynski deposited a baseball into the stands.  They were coming, as sure as the Cardinals would lose the game, and I couldn’t help but search them out. It was time for the “Mitchell Boggs sucks” tweets. http://twitter.com/stlouis0/status/212733554914885632 This strikes me as odd, since Boggs’ [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Prospect ranking season continues leading up to the start of Spring Training, and today’s ranking of the Cardinals’ organization comes from former (and hopefully again, soon) PH8 Podcast guest, Baseball Prospectus’ Kevin Goldstein. The full rankings are subscription only at BP, a subscription that is well worth it. Some player notes: KG ranks Shelby Miller, [...]

If you haven’t already seen Dennis and Josh’s ballots for the Cardinal Blogger Awards, please take a minute to read those as well. Below is my ballot – we elected to have three different ballots so that we could all express our own opinions without having to argue which way to direct a single PH8 [...]

Following the weekend that shall no longer be named, suffering a sweep at the hands of the Reds in Cincinnati that was really making me rethink this post – or, more specifically, my assertion that the 2011 Cardinals were much different than the 2010 version. No sooner had the Cards finished rolling over for the [...]

While doom and gloom should never be part of any fans’ experience, the reality becomes that baseball, as in life, is sometimes rarely fair. St. Louis has overcome enough obstacles in March/April to last well into the dog days, but the powers that be have decided to throw another wrench in the plans. The Cardinals [...]

Yep, my soapbox is bigger than yours is, because it has to be sturdy.  I like to eat 8 lb burritos with a spork while I’m standing on my soapbox, so prepare yourselves.  It’s about to get ugly up in here.  WARNING: A rant is about to take place. I’m sick and tired of people [...]

Without a doubt this is a list in flux, and I presume that’s the case for more folks than just yours truly. Last season’s list bore little resemblance to what it would’ve been in mid-July of this season, and neither of those would match with the list below. Even my late posting of this list [...]
