Another series win (one game against the Marlins counts, right?) for the home team, and in-division against another predicted challenger for the division title, and the Cards leave Milwaukee at 3-1 heading to Cincy. There was a lot to like this weekend, and then a tip-of-your-cap day on Saturday when Zack Greinke silenced the Cardinal [...]

Late last night/early this morning, we posted our 1982/2011 Cards and Brewers roster mash-ups. The idea behind this undertaking is to find the best players, hitters, and pitchers from the 1982 and 2011 Milwaukee Brewers teams and make a roster with them – same for the 1982 and 2011 Cardinals. Now it’s time for the [...]

In an effort to keep things positive, to look forward to games still winnable, and – well – to ultimately put the bad taste of last night’s NLCS Game One loss out of our collective mouths, let’s look at some things we can reasonably expect to see tonight and beyond: Tony La Russa will not hesitate [...]

Well, okay, maybe the Cards need to run off fifteen or eighteen more wins in their next twenty to truly make that statement, but hasn’t it seemed like a few things have gone the Cardinals’ way lately? To wit: Yadier Molina gets caught up at second base having tea with Lance Berkman, but is able [...]

For the sake of his pitching success, Chris Carpenter needs to chill out… To wit- 09.18.2005 – 4 innings pitched, 4 earned runs 10.07.2009 – 5 innings pitched, 4 earned runs 04.21.2010 – 7 innings pitched, 3 earned runs 05.13.2010 – 8 innings pitched, 4 earned runs Carp is a fierce competitor, no doubt, but [...]

In an effort to put a new spin on making preseason predictions this year, we decided to get outside input from those who know the division best – other folks writing about the NL Central.  It just so happens this falls in line with the United Cardinal Bloggers’ 2010 Predictions project as well, so two [...]

In the handful of hours since the Cardinals lost Game One of the NLDS to the Dodgers, the realization has set in that the Dodgers didn’t play much (if any) better than the hometown club. Sure, they had more timely hits – both with the bat and by the ball – than the Cards, but [...]

Who is left in free agency?

by on January 2, 2009 · 5 comments

Now that Tony LaRussa’s self-proclaimed primary focus in the free agent market has signed on for several millions with the Los Angeles of Anaheim, Orange County, California, USA Angels – where do the Cardinals turn next? The Cardinals have, at least in the opinion of this humble scribe, several holes yet to fill as they [...]

Well, I must say that at least one of these decisions by GM John Mozeliak and his front office counterparts with the Cardinals was a surprise. The Cards elected to decline to offer arbitration to any of their three “compensatory” free agents – Russ Springer, Braden Looper, and Jason Isringhausen.  They also did not offer [...]

So I’ve been biding my time, waiting, watching, allowing the news to come to me. As I’m sure my loyal readers know (all three of you), it’s been eerily quiet. Let’s catch up with the goings on… First, I wanted to take another opportunity to publicize the debut and continuing development of United Cardinal Bloggers’ [...]
