Two main points caught my attention right after Game 2 while the ending took more time to evaluate. The 2011 World Series is far from over, thanks in part to the huge play of Jaime Garcia and Allen Craig. Both of the young Cardinals introduced themselves to the rest of baseball on the largest stage [...]

Call it Puma Power if you like or maybe a Berkman Bomb is your preference. Either way the NL Comeback Player of the Year has made it all the way to the top again, this time ready to bring a title home to St. Louis. Home is fitting since the former Houston star and native Texan [...]

Been collecting links (and a few other goodies) all day in the interest of sharing with you loyal three readers… Patrick Rishe writes at Forbes.com that he believes the Cards’ deep run into the playoffs and World Series appearance further cements the chances that Albert Pujols will re-sign with St. Louis. At the Mariners blog [...]

I’ll admit that my interest in the Rangers this year was primarily due to the fact that I had CJ Wilson, Matt Harrison, Colby Lewis, Alexi Ogando, David Murphy, and Mitch Moreland each on a fantasy baseball team at one time or another.  Following them more closely than ever, I could help but have a [...]

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.

The high hopes brought by St. Louis in 2009 left many feeling unfinished business after getting swept at this stage. All that makes this improbable run even more amazing to witness.

“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 [...]

So much for the storybook ending, but St. Louis can write a new finish to 2011 with the help of their long-time rivals. The Cubs travel to Busch for three of the most important games in recent memory with only one club feeling the heat. Chicago most recently dispatched the Brewers 2 out of 3 [...]

Once a year, along with the rest of the United Cardinal Bloggers, we get to put this list together as a review of the Cardinals’ farm system. So far, pretty much every year has been an improvement over the previous. This year is no exception. The Cardinals have multiple prospects on the national radar, and [...]
