Reading a couple of posts over at STLCardinalBaseball this weekend led me into a bit of a debate with Ray over whether the Cardinals routinely pay market value for their players or not.  Spurred on by the ongoing discussions about what market value may look like for one Yadier Molina, Ray took a look at [...]

Runner’s Indifference

Darn the limitations of the 25 man roster.  If ever there was a year the Cardinals could use a 30 man roster, it’s 2011.  It’s not that the team would be all that much better (it probably would), it’s just that it would probably be a bit more fun to watch.  Take Matt Carpenter for [...]

That’s right.  It’s a “Honey-Do” list.  It’s a list of things that must be accomplished prior to opening day, or else you won’t be able to watch baseball in complete peace and quiet.  We’re not talking about your everyday “fix-the-gutter” or unclog the drain type DIY projects, either.  I’m talking serious stuff here, and you’re running [...]

Before the Cardinals start focusing on winning a series, they need to focus on winning the one game in front of them. Hell, before that – focus [...]

I’m going to take a different approach to this.  Everyone clearly has their opinion of whether Chris Carpenter‘s “aside” with Brendan Ryan last night was appropriate or not, and forced to give *my* opinion, I’d probably side with a little bit of what everyone says. Carp is a little extreme sometimes.  About pretty much everything. [...]

A Good Night Turned Bad

I watched last night’s game while also trying to get some other things done – multi-tasking! – and decided I’d try to keep some stream of consciousness notes on the game so I could easily recall some things to write about today. Well, if you watched the game or have checked the box score – [...]

Taking into account that Whiteyball is all but dead, I am still surprised by what this little experiment has taught me. My heart and head were in the right place (for once) by pushing for Colby to take over his chosen role. But boy, the responses shocked even my most cynical viewpoints about TLR and [...]

Cards versus Cubs at Wrigley Field – does it get much better than that?  Well, assuming a Cardinal victory anyway… The United Cardinal Bloggers again undertake our progressive game blog, and you can find the previous and following innings here. I’m covering the fourth inning today, and here we go with the heart of the [...]

St. Louis Cardinals @ San Francisco Giants 8:10 CT TV: Fox Sports Midwest Radio: KTRS-550 Probable Starters: Adam Wainwright vs. Barry Zito The Cardinals dropped an ugly one last night — including two errors, and a .083 BA with RISP — against the always nasty Tim Lincecum. Tonight is a 12-6 dreamers delight, as Adam [...]

It is a very long season, especially sitting here in April, but yesterday’s day/night epic will be talked about over and over. I’ll leave most of the yummy goodness to others because honestly — I’m exhausted. St. Louis Beat P-D’s take should be even more fun in the morning but the JSL!!! guru gives this [...]
