Mitchell Boggs

Cardinals fans at Busch Stadium this weekend have been treated to three starting pitching gems so far in just two games – two for the good guys (Jaime Garcia and Kyle Lohse) and one by the opposing Brewers (Yovani Gallardo).  Lohse’s required a bit more wiggle work, but he was outstanding again nonetheless. We enter [...]

…about the 2010 Cardinals? “I’d play against these guys on one leg,” Phillips insisted before the game. “We have to beat these guys. All they do is b***h and moan about everything — all of them. They’re little b***hes — all of them. “I really hate the Cardinals. Compared to the Cardinals, I love the [...]

I’m BACK!  After over a two week “hiatus” which consisted primarily of being forced to do what’s known in some circles as “work”, I’m back and worse than ever.  Fear not, though.  It’s not like I used my time wisely and tried to make the world a better place or volunteered to help Carlos Lee [...]

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 [...]

The Sixth Man

by on January 26, 2011 · 2 comments

At several points during the 2010 season, the Cardinals either had a 6th starting pitcher on the roster, or they had an injured starting pitcher out for the year (or both).  It’s safe to say that they are a bit too familiar with the concept of replacing a starting pitcher or two during the season, [...]

Young Fernando Salas has seemingly become this year’s “Yo-Yo Man” for the Cardinals, bouncing back and forth often between Memphis and the big club.  Mitchell Boggs and P.J. Walters have previously seen action as the Yo-Yo Man, being called up as an extra arm, to replace an injured pitcher, or just on TLR’s whims – [...]

A day off is good for this team’s bullpen, still not far enough removed for Tony’s liking from the 20-inning marathon last weekend. Rest assured PH8 loyal readers (all three of you), we do not have any intention of hosting a live blog this weekend.  As such, expect regular-old boring nine-inning games.  Sorry. Peoria Cardinals [...]

Ah, it feels good to write a “day-after-game” post again. Who enjoys having baseball back? Cardinals 11, Reds 6 What injuries? Albert Pujols and Yadier Molina both homered, Pujols twice and Molina’s a grand slam, in yesterday’s game.  Seems they’re feeling alright, eh? Skip struggles. Skip Schumaker booted a short-hop ground ball that he probably [...]

While not something I originally planned on including today, it is important for all of us here at PH8 to express our condolences to the Walters family. We were fortunate to get to know P.J. while interviewing him on UCB Radio, and I look forward to watching him overcome this tragedy and again honor his [...]
