Mike Shannon

Sometime in mid-August (ok, August 12 to be exact – it’s right there on the Tweeter box) Cardinal fan Will Leitch began a dialogue “with” the Cardinals. Er, maybe AT the Cardinals is more appropriate. With Will’s permission, and maybe he’ll chime in with some of his own feedback and insight upon review of his [...]

Do you like baseball?  Of course you do.  Do you also enjoy good food?  Duh.  Of course you do.  But do you like saving money and getting a discount on both baseball and food?  Heh.  Now that I’ve set the hook, let me reel you all the way in with an opportunity that might just [...]

The Cardinals have their backs against the wall, and the odds are against them.  They need to leave it all out on the field tonight, give it 110%, and execute like never before.  They need to ante up and kick in, kick the tires and light the fires, and hold nothing back.  It’s time to [...]

Yep, my soapbox is bigger than yours is, because it has to be sturdy.  I like to eat 8 lb burritos with a spork while I’m standing on my soapbox, so prepare yourselves.  It’s about to get ugly up in here.  WARNING: A rant is about to take place. I’m sick and tired of people [...]

Sounds like a pretty cool name for a band, right? Actually, with his appearance catching in the late innings of Sunday night’s game, Nick Stavinoha joined a short list of Cardinal players that have made a one-game cameo playing catcher (when catcher is not their natural position).

I didn’t get to see all of the game in Cincinnati last night (MLB.tv clearly still working out the bugs this season), but what I did see via the tiny little screen on my iPhone (AtBat working like a charm) left me with the following quick hits: Cardinals 6, Reds 3 Ryan Frankhausen?  Isringlin?
