Philadelphia Phillies

If you look at what the Philadelphia Phillies have done in the past 5 seasons, you might be tempted to think that they are a lock for a playoff spot.  Starting in 2007, the Phillies won 89, 92, 93, 97, and 102 games.  This year’s team is not any of those teams by any stretch [...]

Well, it’s unofficially official now.  The long national nightmare is finally over.  Roy Oswalt has finally decided that playing baseball right now does not sound nearly as much fun as staying at home and playing with his Tonka trucks in his own sandbox. Instead of joining one of the potential contenders that came calling, Oswalt [...]

How fitting that in the “Year of the Pitcher” we would be tasked with casting a ballot for the Baseball Bloggers Alliance’s Walter Johnson Award, choosing the top pitcher of the season for the National League.

Didn’t see that finish coming either, huh? And after this summer, any further need to gamble, skydive, or even ride coasters is forever muted.

Yes, our beloved Redbirds are on to the 2011 tournament, and without having to play that pesky 163rd game, even! Chris Carpenter [...]

Bad news, Cards fans.  Maybe you already know this, maybe you don’t. Albert Pujols being on the disabled list is not the only cause of the Cards’ recent slide.  The lineup looks really strange with him out and Matt Holliday hitting third, followed by whatever combination Tony La Russa scabs together that day.  But given [...]

Following the weekend that shall no longer be named, suffering a sweep at the hands of the Reds in Cincinnati that was really making me rethink this post – or, more specifically, my assertion that the 2011 Cardinals were much different than the 2010 version.
