Ignorance is Bliss

Much like in high school, I prefer to take the high road when it comes to October rumors in baseball. PH8 scribes shared a laugh last night when I sent this article and of course it has a Chicago byline, so that should tell you everything you need right there. But the fact that DG had [...]

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 [...]

In another game that many would argue the 2008 Cardinals didn’t have a chance in, the 2009 Redbirds emerge victorious to win another series against the Dodgers, their fifth win this season in the seventh and final regular season matchup with the NL West leaders. Notes Adam Wainwright was brilliant early, then seemed as if [...]

Chris Carpenter wasn’t his sharpest. Albert Pujols continued to smack the ball around the park, but didn’t deliver the big blows. The Cardinals put together six runs (it’s a serious number) against Pirates’ pitching, and moved one game ahead of the Chicago Cubs in the NL Central. Matt Holliday continued to rake, Mark DeRosa has [...]

Anyone following the Cardinals of late, or at least since the two most recent trades, is well aware that Julio Lugo and Matt Holliday are really hitting well right now.  Just how well? Holliday:  .529/.609/.824 in 23 plate appearances. Holliday has yet to hit his first Cardinal home run, but five of his nine hits [...]

Trying to overcome nine walks from your pitching staff in one game is pretty difficult, yet there the Cardinals were, with the bases loaded and Yadier Molina at the plate. Alas, it wasn’t meant to be. As Brewers beat-man Tom Haudricourt Twittered during the game: Brewers-Cards, 4-4 in the 8th. If Brewers win, they pull [...]

Wa-hey!  That’s a winner! After another frustrating night on offense from the Cardinals (don’t know about you, but I find it virtually impossible to tell anymore if the Cardinal lineup is that bad, or if we are just seeing great pitching each night – let’s call it both), the Cards finally were able to make [...]

More on the DeRosa trade… Speculation is already running rampant on the name of the remaining player the Cardinals will send to the Cleveland Indians by September 1st to complete the Mark DeRosa trade. We’ll know the answer to that question soon enough. But what about the other potential player to be named later in [...]

Saturday brought not only a much needed win for the St. Louis Cardinals, but also another bat for their sometimes slumping offense. Many Cardinal fans had been clamoring for weeks for Cards GM John Mozeliak to acquire the versatile Mark DeRosa from the Cleveland Indians, and the deal was made late Saturday night for reliever [...]

Today marks that usual part of the year where we try like hell not to be homers, and usually fail to some extent.  Without further delay, our predictions for the NL Central standings in 2009: Chicago Cubs – Anyone not picking the Cubs at the top of this division is fooling themselves (sorry Sarah!).  That’s [...]
