Dennis and Andrew join the show this week to almost make a Pitchers Hit Eighth clean sweep. We discussed EVERY PLAYER on the 2012 Baseball Hall of Fame ballot, and whether or not we thought they should get in.

Well, I guess that’s not actually true – they’re not really free agents, but rather, mercenaries adding to their list of websites being infiltrated by their great work. In addition to the great work Dennis and Josh do here at PH8, I’m happy to announce that we’ve somehow conned accomplished baseball minds and writers Dayn [...]

This episode is more like what Josh and I are used to.  Start out with a modest goal of chatting about Cardinals baseball for about a half-hour, and wind up closer to an hour-and-a-half.

Earlier this week, Fox Sports Midwest studio anchor and co-host of the “Parris and Burwell” radio show Pat Parris posted to his blog on the 101 ESPN website, indicating he had the answer for the Cardinals’ offensive struggles. Please, Pat, do tell! Instant Help For Offense…Bat Pitcher 9th With a title like that, it seemed [...]

Since the Cardinals took the night off last night (trust me, they did, it was an off-day at Busch III), we at PH8 regret to inform you that as a result you will be subjected to … *** SHAMELESS PLUG THURSDAY *** We’re happy, nay, ecstatic to have you reading along here on the home [...]

One year ago today

by on May 5, 2009 · 2 comments

One short year ago, this site was born. In hindsight, it probably would’ve been a good thing to start with a post that was actually about the Cardinals. Instead, we led off with the ‘Soriano = Zito ?‘ post.  It’s fun to look back at that one and think about how far we’ve come since [...]
