St Louis Cardinals

If you haven’t seen all the commercials, just click here.  Remember to return to PH8 to vote, though. Also, vote. Follow gr33nazn [...]

The Cardinals’ release of veteran non-roster invitees Alex Cora and Koyie Hill on Sunday wasn’t the type of transaction that jumps off the computer screen at you, but it was another signal of how the organization has changed in recent years.

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 [...]
