New Year’s resolutions typically fall into the same category as making your bed every morning – tremendous wastes of time.  By the time December 31st rolls around, how many people even can recall all the resolutions they made?  Instead of focusing on that marathon you never really intend to run, the 20 pounds you won’t make [...]

UCB Awards – Dennis

by on November 11, 2011 · 3 comments

It’s time.  Yes, it’s time for the UCB (United Cardinal Bloggers) members to pat each other on the back and remind each other just how awesome we think we are.  Okay, I’m exaggerating…slightly.  It is actually time for the UCB members to vote on the various annual awards which honor various people and blogs for [...]

Back in January of last year, we made a “mashup” of the Cardinal teams of 2000 and 2010 – choosing the best player seasons of each year and combining them to form one lineup/roster. In anticipation of NLCS Game Three, here is a similar exercise for the 1982 World Series and 2011 National League Championship [...]

John Mozeliak doubles up

by on October 6, 2011 · 12 comments

It’s been said more than once, by more than one person, Cardinals fan or not: The Colby Rasmus trade was an all-in move for the 2011 Cards. All of sports has adopted the strategic poker move as a euphemism for taking extreme measures or doing everything in one’s power to accomplish a goal. After last [...]

 In my most recent post, I spoke out about the need for a Cardinal Nation Penalty Box for those “fans” who simply insist on giving up on the Cardinals before the very end.  I’m here to tell you right now that the penalty box is full, and you folks know who you are.  I saw [...]

About Last Night

by on September 27, 2011 · 0 comments

Reporter: ”Coach, what do you think about your team’s execution?” Coach John McKay:  “I’m all for it.” The Cardinals should definitely be looking ahead, but there are several valuable lessons worth taking away from last night.  They are much the same lessons that have been giving the guys fits all season long, and it is never too late [...]

Reality Bites

by on September 2, 2011 · 0 comments

I hate to break the news to everybody else in Cardinal Nation, but the chances of the Cardinals reaching the playoffs increased from just above 1.0% to a whopping 4.3% after a 3 game sweep of the Brewers.  With only 24 games left on their schedule, the Brewers have a magic number of 18 to [...]

Let’s just dispense with the pleasantries and list them all here, shall we? This way, Cards fans have a repository to come back to game after game, without having to continue to come up with new reasons for a lost season. In no particular order: Moths Ryan Franklin Takashi Saito Rob Drake Tony Rasmus Dan [...]

Maybe the Cardinals have been going about things all wrong for the past couple of weeks.  The Redbirds did nothing on the field worth noting yesterday, and yet they picked up a half game on the Brewers in the standings.  “Huzzah” for doing nothing, I say.  If only the Cardinals could pick up a few games by doing [...]
