One Last Desperate Plea

by on March 16, 2011 · 6 comments

This is one last desperate plea from Statler, Waldorf, and myself.  Kyle McClellan joined the two Muppets in the back of the theater, but he doesn’t want to speak on his on behalf at this point.  That’s fine.  I’m bringing the heat and blathering enough for all 4 of us.  We’ve got one simple message. Leave [...]

Riverboat Gambler

“You got to know when to hold ‘em, know when to fold ‘em Know when to walk away and know when to run” ~Kenny Rogers (The Gambler) Those words of wisdom probably apply just as well to free agency as they do to poker, and there are certainly some parallels to be drawn.  You can’t win every [...]

Build it Backwards

by on March 3, 2011 · 2 comments

It’s one thing to look at the 2011 Cardinals and think about tweaking one thing here or making an adjustment there.  Rebuilding is an altogether different approach, but few people really want to think about the “R” word right now.  What about looking at the team by deconstructing it first?  It’s like taking apart your [...]

Once again the United Cardinal Bloggers are undertaking our fall Roundtable discussions via e-mail. Josh will be moderating a discussion on a question of his own in a few days, so keep an eye out for that. My question to the group has already made the rounds, and there were some interesting (and some predictable) [...]

Without a doubt this is a list in flux, and I presume that’s the case for more folks than just yours truly. Last season’s list bore little resemblance to what it would’ve been in mid-July of this season, and neither of those would match with the list below. Even my late posting of this list [...]

Getting This Party Started

by on August 26, 2009 · 1 comment

After such a warm welcome, I figured out the best way to introduce myself again to the three loyal readers of PH8. I’m going to talk entirely about another person. Erin Bolen has resumed her pinch-hitting role down in Springfield and shares with us that she has the inside track to take over the beat full-time. [...]

With the trade deadline fast approaching, and every post I write seemingly spouting off about “why can’t we trade this minor-leaguer for an All-Star?”, I thought it appropriate to get some information from a better source.  Erik from Future Redbirds was gracious enough to take the time to answer some (admittedly) off-the-cuff questions about the [...]

Another week, another frustrating set of performances from the Cards’ bullpen. Not that I haven’t appreciated him before, and I haven’t taken notice of his other-worldly performance in his career to-date, but Cardinal fans should really take pause at being so lucky to watch Albert Pujols on an everyday basis.  The man is an incredible [...]
