Ryan Theriot

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 [...]

Up until last Sept. 28, when the Cardinals won in Houston and the Braves lost in Atlanta and the National League wildcard spot completed its logic-defying defection to St. Louis, May 1, 2011, would have been as good a day as any with which to sum up the Redbirds’ season. It was a day that [...]

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 [...]

  Ryan Theriot has been non-tendered.  In non-baseball language, that means he wasn’t invited to play in the same sandbox next year.  I plan on wearing a pair of jorts at the home opener in his honor.  It’s not that he wasn’t good, either.  It’s just that his ability to catch and throw the round [...]

It’s that time of the year again, for the United Cardinal Bloggers’ Fall Roundtable discussions.  You can find all of the other question and answer sessions by visiting the UCB site - but yesterday was our turn to do the asking, thus today is the day to do the posting. We asked: It seems with every [...]

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 between local, [...]

As we all prepare for tonight’s Cards versus Astros and Phillies versus Braves games that may determine the final playoff spot in the National League, I thought it appropriate to bring a little levity to a high-leverage situation. It just so happens that Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez has some managerial tendencies that tweak that teams [...]

About Last Night

Reporter: ”Coach, what do you think about your team’s execution?” Coach John McKay:  “I’m all for it.” The Cardinals should definitely be looking ahead, but there are several valuable lessons worth taking away from last night.  They are much the same lessons that have been giving the guys fits all season long, and it is never too late [...]

That’s Plausidiculous

Admit it.  Y’all have already huddled around water coolers, in break rooms, or gathered for drinks after work to discuss the state of the Cardinals more than once recently and discussed bringing back Berkman, Albert’s contract, and/or the state of TLR’s mental health.  That’s all well and good, but how many of you did your homework [...]

Let’s just dispense with the pleasantries and list them all here, shall we? This way, Cards fans have a repository to come back to game after game, without having to continue to come up with new reasons for a lost season. In no particular order: Moths Ryan Franklin Takashi Saito Rob Drake Tony Rasmus Dan [...]
