ESPN’s Keith Law from Scouts Inc. ranked the St. Louis Cardinal minor league system 29th out of 30 in his yearly organizational rankings list. St. Louis’ system was depleted by the mid-season trade acquisitions of Mark DeRosa and Matt Holliday. While having a poor minor league system is never a good thing, on the optimistic [...]

1. Cardinal Player of the Year Matt Holliday Albert Pujols Brendan Ryan Write-in: __________ Is it really necessary for me to write this one up?  Mang raked again this season, carried the team through the first half.  Will he seek the dollars or the championships in seasons beyond 2011?  Or both? 2.

Much like in high school, I prefer to take the high road when it comes to October rumors in baseball. PH8 scribes shared a laugh last night when I sent this article and of course it has a Chicago byline, so that should tell you everything you need right there. But the fact that DG had [...]

Without a doubt this is a list in flux, and I presume that’s the case for more folks than just yours truly. Last season’s list bore little resemblance to what it would’ve been in mid-July of this season, and neither of those would match with the list below. Even my late posting of this list [...]

Getting This Party Started

After such a warm welcome, I figured out the best way to introduce myself again to the three loyal readers of PH8. I’m going to talk entirely about another person. Erin Bolen has resumed her pinch-hitting role down in Springfield and shares with us that she has the inside track to take over the beat full-time.

Get ready for the link-fest folks. Shelby Miller The Cardinals’ front office has been saying for weeks they weren’t worried about getting a deal done.  The St. Louis scribes have said for some time that they expected it to get done.  There are tidbits floating around on Twitter today that many of these deals have [...]

Who were those masked men last night? What got into the Cardinal bats? More importantly, will Tony actually stick with the lineup for a second day to try and keep the spark going?  [Ed. note - A: No.  Rasmus will sit today versus a left-handed starter, Andrew Miller.  Lots of right-handed hitters in there today.] [...]
