If nothing else, the annual Rawlings Gold Glove Award winners remind us that most voters probably don’t actually watch much baseball.  If they did, Derek Jeter would not have taken home the award in 2010.  If Rawlings has accomplished anything, it’s that they have got one thing right.   The additional step of naming finalists for [...]

If you saw any baseball on this same day in 2011, you undoubtedly remember at least some sense of euphoria or bitter disappointment, or maybe even both simultaneously.  Game 162 for a good portion of the teams in MLB usually amounts to either one last opportunity to see prospects in game action or a chance [...]

I owe you dear readers a qualifier.  This is really about some of the largest contracts in baseball history that were signed prior to 2011, because it might be a tad bit early to grade that Votto deal for $225M with the ink still wet. Alex Rodriguez (Yankees) – 10 years for $275M signed in [...]

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. Why? Who knows, yet here they are. Oh, and to serve you all, our three loyal readers! The Daily Pujols certainly won’t be a comprehensive list, but between local, [...]

It cannot be that difficult to write stories for some web sports outlets.  After the journalistic fodder that rolled off the “presses” yesterday with Morosi’s face at the top, I’m utterly convinced that you simply need an advanced Mad Lib pad specifically designed for baseball to be a scribe with troll-like status.  Go ahead and give [...]

If you haven’t already read the piece on the Albert Pujols negotiations penned by ESPN’s Jayson Stark, then you can find it here.  Alternatively, you can just keep reading the regular feeds from your favorite Cardinals bloggers, because Jayson’s piece really just summarizes everything the aforementioned bloggers have been discussing for months. 8 yrs at [...]

Brian Cashman on Line 1

You’ve probably heard that the New York Yankees are a team scorned, and they are in search of a top shelf starting pitcher.  The Cardinals just happen to have a couple of those, and one just happens to be nearing the end of his contract.  He’s ‘s already spent 6 seasons pitching in the AL, [...]

Introduction (aka a bunch of words at the top): An introduction is most certainly in order.  I’m Dennis, but you may know me on Twitter as gr33nazn – owner of #ManFridge.  I recently authored a post on my personal blog about why I’m not a baseball blogger, so naturally I’m now attempting to be a baseball [...]
