Scott Boras

You’ve been given control of the decision-making process for the Cardinals just this once.  After you have bounced around in John Mozeliak’s office and called in Mike Matheny for a discussion about banning the bunt, you have to call Scott Boras and invite him in for a chat.  Would you rather extend Kyle Lohse’s stay [...]

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 [...]

I am firmly in the camp of saying no to no-trade clauses. I think they are never a smart idea for the team giving them (see: Lohse, Kyle) and generally are only a way for players to either a) be able to guarantee they can finish their career in one place (certainly understandable), b) add [...]

While it may not look like it at first, according to Scott Boras, the competition for landing Matt Holliday in free agency appears to be a very tight race between two teams… In case you can’t read the ridiculously small legend at right, I’ll give you the goods here: I’ve got the Cards in red.

Today we take part in another United Cardinal Bloggers project, choosing a side of a debate topic to, well, debate with another member of the UCB blogging syndicate. My very worthy adversary today is Andrea over at Baseball Digest.  We will be arguing politely discussing the merits of resigning center fielder Rick Ankiel at the [...]

Ok, I’m sorry – you probably came here thinking I had a scoop – and for that I apologize.  There’s no scoop, Mo is not working on an extension for Rick Ankiel (that I know about). What I do have is a something I whipped up over at xtranormal.com, a cool little movie maker website, [...]

Once again the United Cardinal Bloggers undertake a Roundtable project, a way to pass the time during Spring Training while waiting for Opening Day.
