With the trade of Tyler Greene to the Houston Astros, the list of ex-Cardinals grew just a bit.  As a matter of fact, he might be the final piece to the most epic NotCardinals team ever.  Consider the potential NotCardinals 25-man roster.  Note that several ex-Redbirds have been excluded, but many belong on the 40-man [...]

Sure, I imagine most Cardinal fans want the team to win just about every game they watch.  Heck, they may want them to win every single game they watch.  If you expect either to happen, then you are indeed a fool, and a fool and the team’s bandwagon are soon parted.  Games like the one [...]

Reading a couple of posts over at STLCardinalBaseball this weekend led me into a bit of a debate with Ray over whether the Cardinals routinely pay market value for their players or not.  Spurred on by the ongoing discussions about what market value may look like for one Yadier Molina, Ray took a look at [...]

If you think back on the Tony La Russa Era of Cardinals baseball (1996-2011), at least one player immediately should spring to mind at each position in the field. Every position, that is, except for one. There’s Yadier Molina at catcher, Scott Rolen at third base, Edgar Renteria at shortstop (or maybe David Eckstein if [...]

I’m big on the Giants.  Yep, I’m HUGE on the Giants.  Giants Dodgers Padres Rockies Diamondbacks  They’ve got a full year of Buster Posey, Madison Bumgarner, and they’ve got some potential breakthrough talent (Brandon Belt).  Even if Huff drops off a bit this year, they still have the makings of a 95-win team in that [...]

The Zen of Cardinal Nation

by on February 10, 2011 · 3 comments

At some point, I’m waiting for an outbreak of common sense to strike.  The sky will no longer be falling, and people will stop preaching “doom and gloom” to the members of Cardinal Nation for the sake of page views and ratings.  Ultimately, the factual reality will prevail over conjecture, hearsay, and third generation innuendo [...]

On the morning of January 19th, I started collecting links – as many as I can find with minimal effort – that discuss the Albert Pujols contract discussions. Why? Who knows, yet here they are. Oh, and to serve you all, our three loyal readers! The Daily Pujols certainly won’t be a comprehensive list, but [...]

Putting a Bow on 2010

  It’s almost time to close the book on 2010 and find out just how many of your friends and family don’t actually know the words to “Auld Lang Syne”.  If you need help on the song, I recommend this version performed by Street Corner Symphony from this year’s season 2 of the The Sing Off.  Before [...]

Just when I thought it was safe to venture into my backlog of blog pieces, I remembered the December project for the United Cardinal Bloggers (UCB).  The project is the top 5 stories of 2010 in Cardinals baseball, and it shouldn’t be a difficult piece to write. 5.  Cardinals sign Albert Pujols to mega-deal extension [...]

Obviously, there must be a huge pile of money located near a ledge somewhere, because this would logically explain why so many Cardinals fans had to be asked to back away from ledges yesterday.  I’m kidding of course, and the “ledges” weren’t real.  The only huge pile of money involved was the one the Cardinals’ [...]
