“You can’t ask for anything more than to be playing meaningful games in September with a chance to make the playoffs.” ~Practically every player/coach/manager on a team about to miss the playoffs. Boom goes the dynamite, people.  I sincerely hope that the folks in the video department for the Cardinals took time to piece together [...]

With last night’s game safely in the bag and no bullpen blunders to speak of, the coast seems clear for reviewing a little Cardinal history in the bullpen. Ryan Franklin’s 38 saves in 2009 put him in pretty elite company in Cardinal closer history.  Franklin became only the seventh pitcher in club history to record [...]

I didn’t get to see all of the game in Cincinnati last night (MLB.tv clearly still working out the bugs this season), but what I did see via the tiny little screen on my iPhone (AtBat working like a charm) left me with the following quick hits: Cardinals 6, Reds 3 Ryan Frankhausen?  Isringlin? Ryan [...]

The United Cardinal Bloggers‘ January project tasked us bloggers with putting together a Cardinals team made up of the best at each position, in our opinion, during the recently completed decade.  Not really any other restrictions placed on this one, other than it was due on Friday.  Oops.  Better late than never. Not surprisingly, there [...]

[Ed. note - Today's guest poster actually wrote his own introduction, which doubly saves us time here!  Jonathan says:  "Pitchers Hit Eighth threw me a biting knuckle curve the other week via Twitter when they actually accepted my self-invitation to write a guest article for them this week. Most of the time, I blog randomly [...]

Tony LaRussa wanted the Cardinals to show they could win those games too. The 3-2 affairs, the 2-1 dances. The Cards proved they could win the close game on the back of (dare I say it?) a good performance by the bullpen. —– Chris Perez slammed a door. Kyle McClellan did his best Jason Isringhausen [...]

Let’s see if I can remember who I picked to win divisions in the previous posts… AL Playoffs Cleveland Indians over New York Yankees When Alex Rodriguez struggles upon his return from hip surgery, ultimately shutting it down in September, the window opens for the Evil Empire to go down. Tampa Bay Rays over Los [...]

[Ed. note - I've revised the post to re-order all of the charts, ranked by the column that is the "pertinent information".  I'm not sure why I didn't do that in the first place, but it was late when I originally posted, so forgive me.  Hopefully this makes the information even clearer.  Thanks for reading.] [...]

Well, I must say that at least one of these decisions by GM John Mozeliak and his front office counterparts with the Cardinals was a surprise. The Cards elected to decline to offer arbitration to any of their three “compensatory” free agents – Russ Springer, Braden Looper, and Jason Isringhausen.  They also did not offer [...]
