The response to the “STARS 4 Baby Reesa” so far has been nothing short of overwhelming.  The wonderful people at Sunrise UMC who are coordinating this event have been going full speed and non-stop since early this morning.  Thank you for all your patience.  Despite what many people have said, there are still tickets available.  [...]

With MLB nearing the end of the midsummer night’s bad dream, some members of Cardinal Nation have turned their respective attentions to ways to improve an already solid team enough to push it past the Reds and Pirates in the NL Central.  Some seem ready to consider just about anything, some want a big time [...]

Kudos to the people at A&E Networks Home Entertainment who recognized that the 2011 World Series story would not be complete without discussing the mad dash to the finish, the penultimate game 162, and the defeat of 2 baseball powerhouses en route to the World Series.  Don’t let the title fool you, though.  This DVD set [...]

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. Thankfully, this award is also based upon the regular season, which keeps us within the “Year of the Pitcher” [...]
