Jason Motte

Need a reason to get out and do something the night of August 20th?  Some guy named Jason Motte is going to be doing an autograph signing at Chesterfield Baseball Cards according to this page.  Of course, the page lists the day as “Saturday, August 20, 2012″, so maybe Jason’s calendar isn’t the same as [...]

You’ve been given control of the decision-making process for the Cardinals just this once.  After you have bounced around in John Mozeliak’s office and called in Mike Matheny for a discussion about banning the bunt, you have to call Scott Boras and invite him in for a chat.  Would you rather extend Kyle Lohse’s stay [...]

The Cardinals just traded Zach Cox for Edward Mujica which naturally produced a “They did what to whom for how many cows?” response.  Obviously, this was not the megadeal many in Cardinal Nation were looking for, but it certainly has potential to be significantly better than nothing.  For the record, Cox was not exactly tearing [...]

No Sacred Cows Here

Be realistic, and please admit that you have certain players you do not wish to see leave the Cardinals or the farm system.  For whatever your reasons, you have grown emotionally attached to 1 or more, and the thought of them in another team’s uniform amounts to baseball sacrilege.  Well, try setting aside those thoughts [...]

The response to the “STARS 4 Baby Reesa” so far has been nothing short of overwhelming.  The wonderful people at Sunrise UMC who are coordinating this event have been going full speed and non-stop since early this morning.  Thank you for all your patience.  Despite what many people have said, there are still tickets available.  [...]

UPDATED 07/17/2012: Many thanks to the folks from 101 ESPN The Fast Lane for giving us some linkage love today.  To get the absolute latest information, click here. Several weeks ago I posted information about Skip Schumaker’s upcoming charity event to benefit Reesa Stutzman (original post here).  Some relevant information has since become available, and [...]

Happy Father’s Day to all of you dads. I spent the mid-afternoon of my Father’s Day at the local swimming hole with the young boy PH8 and Wife PH8 – who, bless her heart, advised me to start the Cards game from the beginning once we returned home and nap-time had ensued. *sigh* Little did [...]

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’ [...]

  The seemingly rhetorical question may actually deserve an answer this time.  Why must reality dictate that what our brains believe to be “right” be so far on the bad side of “wrong”?  How can intuition fail so often?  More importantly, why do we lie to ourselves in an effort to convince ourselves (and others) [...]

Evidence that many members of Cardinal Nation have already jumped the proverbial shark abounds, and the perception seems greatly deviated from the reality.  The Cardinals remain a division leading team, yet they have recently played like a farm club.  On paper, they still look like a potential playoff team.  On the field, they appear to [...]
