Jose Oquendo

I was minding my own business on Twitter this morning when the must-follow Sam Miller tweeted a link to this post from El Maquino, the results (as of Thursday morning) of a St. Louis Post-Dispatch online poll. Go check them out. Are you done laughing yet? Can I continue? OK, I’ll wait … Let’s get two facts [...]

Moved to record a new episode after far too much time taken off since the last one, Josh and I blazed our own path without a guest for Episode 8.0. We did however, solicit questions from Twitter just before the show, and wound up discussing topics ranging from Jose Oquendo‘s future with the club, to [...]

I really thought Mike Matheny would make a great successor to Dave Duncan one day – following the same route Duncan did, from catcher to successful pitching coach. Instead, Matheny is now Duncan’s boss. Following a relatively short search, John Mozeliak found his man. He didn’t have to look far, awarding the job to the [...]

It’s that time of the year again, for the United Cardinal Bloggers’ Fall Roundtable discussions.  You can find all of the other question and answer sessions by visiting the UCB site - but yesterday was our turn to do the asking, thus today is the day to do the posting. We asked: It seems with every [...]

Just when we thought the crazy part of the baseball year was over, St. Louis now has to fill two very large holes barely a week after celebrating WS Title #11. And for the first time, the thought of not having TLR scowling from the dugout still is hard to imagine. After the final out [...]

WE’RE BACK At the request of Albert Pujols, The Daily Pujols was suspended during the season – no contract talks. But now we’re back with a vengeance. Not familiar? On the morning of January 19th, I started collecting links – as many as I can find with minimal effort – that discuss the Albert Pujols contract discussions. [...]

Epic WAR Graph Wednesday today. It’s the SCRAPGraph.  Or GRITGraph.  Whichever you prefer. We’ve got Nick Punto.  We’ve got Aaron Miles.  We’ve got Craig Paquette.  And just for good measure, The Secret Weapon, Jose Oquendo. And believe it or not, there are some fascinating things to be seen (isn’t that always the case with WAR [...]

My Opening Day Pitch

by on March 30, 2011 · 2 comments

There’s nothing quite like opening day at Busch Stadium.  This year, the Cardinals have selected former Cardinal great Jim Edmonds to throw out the first pitch.  As I’ve already suggested, I believe it would be apropos for Jimmy Ballgame to launch it from either CF or the bullpen just because he’s awesome enough to do [...]

FUNdraising Ideas

by on February 4, 2011 · 3 comments

With the Cardinals facing the prospect of giving a substantial pay raise to arguably the best player in baseball, I thought I’d try and help the team out with some fundraising ideas.  No ordinary bake sales or car washes will do for this team, though.  This situation calls for some extraordinary, out-of-the box ideas, and [...]

Heart Healthy

by on January 12, 2011 · 2 comments

C’mon!  You didn’t think I was going to go into some long-winded analogy about cholesterol, heart-healthy diets, and cardiology, did you?  Did you?  I’m not that predictable, or at least I hope I’m not that predictable.  No, I’m talking about the heart of the order.  In this case, I’m specifically talking about Rasmus-Pujols-Holliday.  Consider what [...]
