If you think back on the Tony La Russa Era of Cardinals baseball (1996-2011), at least one player immediately should spring to mind at each position in the field. Every position, that is, except for one. There’s Yadier Molina at catcher, Scott Rolen at third base, Edgar Renteria at shortstop (or maybe David Eckstein if [...]

I have seen this film, and it is magnificent. Dennis watched the film. Shockingly, he loved it. Remember the goosebumps you had watching the Cards in the World Series when it was going on live? Experience them again, watching highlights of the Cardinals’ 2011 season, culminating with an in-depth look at the World Series, complete [...]

If you haven’t already seen Dennis and Josh’s ballots for the Cardinal Blogger Awards, please take a minute to read those as well.

Dennis did a much better job describing the fun earlier right here, so I get the easy job! Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine getting to take part in something so cool as the CBA’s when this all started for me. I am blessed to get to work with a great pair of guys [...]

We asked: It seems with every [...]

World Series Game Seven’s are best watched from the edge of a seat. I learned that last night as the Cardinals slowly, systematically – thankfully – secured their eleventh World Championship in franchise history. What a game. What a series. What a season. The Texas Rangers were the perfect, formidable foe for this season’s Fall [...]

[ED Note: I received an e-mail this morning containing an unsolicited story of one Cardinal fan's recollection of how he watched the Cardinals defeat the Rangers in Game 6 of the World Series.  PH8 Reader Matt led off the e-mail with this: "I had to sit down and type out my thoughts about last night.

Can You Hear Me Now?

Tony LaRussa called down to the bullpen while Octavio Dotel was struggling with the whole “making good pitches” thing, and he asked that Jason Motte start warming up.  Somehow, the Cardinal bullpen coach, Derek Lilliquist, allegedly heard “Rzepcynski” instead of “Motte”.  Astutely, LaRussa saw that Motte was not the one warming up, and he called [...]
