Jason Bay

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 [...]

Beat the Pirates

by on September 13, 2008 · 2 comments

That’s really all the Cardinals had to do this season, with any sort of regularity, to be staring a playoff berth right in the eyes. Sure, 5-10 against the Brewers hasn’t done them any favors either (and 2-4 against the Royals, and 3-4 against the Giants). They’ve had their other opportunities, they’ve had many chances [...]

Now, before everyone attacks me about this being a rebuilding year and the Cards shouldn’t be giving up propects for rentals, don’t sell the farm, they’re in this position because Walt Jocketty mortgaged the future for now, etc., please listen.

Play a hard … six??

by on June 2, 2008 · 2 comments

Tonight’s game was hard to stomach.  The Cards produced some early runs with more clutch hitting, a nice 2-out stroke in the first inning by Ryan Ludwick hopefully to get him back on track (he finished two for three, with two RBI).  Luddy again struck with a sac fly in the 3rd. Adam Wainwright was [...]

…when Mark McGwire would come to the plate, usually in a big-time game situation, and you knew, you just knew that Big Mac was going to hit one out? I remember it vividly. It was almost as if McGwire made it his personal mission to make sure that everyone who saw a Cards game in [...]
