St Louis Post-Dispatch

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 [...]

From the SABR press release on the day’s event: “SABR DAY” TO BE CELEBRATED ACROSS NORTH AMERICA ON JANUARY 30 On Saturday, [...]

[Ed. note - I know it's July.  I know I'm about four-ish weeks late with this post.  Sue me.  Better late than never, right?] I was lucky growing up where I did, about a half-hour east of St Louis – “on the Illinois side.” I was able to attend Cardinal games fairly regularly, thanks to [...]

I had to laugh at the headline link on ESPN.com (that’s the Eastern Seaboard Promotion Network, for those of us in the Midwest) after Tuesday night’s Cardinals – Tigers game. The Cards exploded on offense, plating all eleven of their runs by the end of the sixth inning. Albert Pujols had a fine game by [...]

Today brought us some great posts across the Cardinal blogosphere, not so indirectly focused toward an article that appeared yesterday in the St Louis Post-Dispatch. I don’t have a lot to add to what Pip and C70 have already said regarding the venom being spewed toward Cardinal management, nor about the media’s involvement in provoking [...]

UCB: Top 7 Prospects followup

by on September 10, 2008 · 4 comments

As a follow-up to our UCB project (well, he actually commissioned our lists) Derrick Goold of the St Louis Post-Dispatch has posted his Bird Land 7 over at STLToday.com. Naturally, Derrick chose many different players from the rest of us, and puts up a great read. Thanks to DG and the UCB crew for the [...]

SI.com’s Jon Heyman, who wrote that the Pirates would seek high return to trade Jason Bay, continues to insist that the Cardinals are willing to trade Colby Rasmus. His persistence is somewhat amusing since Rasmus’ availability has been repeatedly refuted and flat out denied, including two published reports from Devan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette [...]

Late to the Bonds party

by on July 14, 2008 · 4 comments

So, it appears that I’ve missed the boat on this one.  Half the Cardinal blogosphere is calling for Barry Bonds to be signed. Kujo over at Rockin the Red was the first one I saw, then Scott Wuerz from the Belleville News-Democrat put a bit on his blog View From the Cheap Seats, InsideSTL.com jumped [...]
