Not so fast.  Slow down there, wonder fan.      How much money are we talking about and for how long?  8 yrs and $240M?  10 yrs and $300M?  7 yrs / $225M plus the Gateway Arch and a riverboat?       Seriously?  I’ve heard or read just about every variation you can imagine for the next Pujols contract in [...]

Don’t let the title run you off just yet, I promise I’m going to make sense of it. I’m going to piggy-back a bit on what Dennis wrote this morning, because either we were reading the same things yesterday or great minds just think alike. Now, I know I’ve been a bit scarce in this [...]

Starting the final limp to October, this week marks big things for the Cardinals’ family and the PH8 team. My return to the site is just a blip on the radar, but I admit it is good to be back. No one could have predicted the free fall that St. Louis has experienced since the dust-up [...]

: purely opinionated motivational coach-speak : The Cardinals need to start compartmentalizing things a bit – focus on winning portions of the game, get a bit more basic. 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 [...]

This weekend’s series was awful.  It was a seemingly fitting display for a baseball club that has been so inconsistent this season that they can’t even consistently be inconsistent. One of the popular fan responses and behavior this weekend was to pile onto Kyle Lohse as somewhat of a figurehead for everything that has gone [...]

Well, the game wasn’t really the story last night, was it? It’s still difficult for me to determine exactly when, by watching the various videos of the incident, the young man was tasered, but the lead photo at Deadspin makes it clear that it actually happened.
