Sunday Spitballs

I wish that just once this team would display some killer instinct and put a team away when they have a chance for a sweep.  Edinson Volquez was on today, no doubt, but the Cardinals had their chances.  Just winning series for the rest of the season isn’t going to get it done anymore – [...]

This team treats me like a yo-yo and I keep coming back for more.  This week’s version will likely be short, as I missed lots of action while globe-trotting for work.  At any rate, here goes this week’s Spitballs: If you are religious in any way, believe in anything at all, pray or meditate or [...]

My apologies for the lack of posts the last few days, a spotty internet outage has kept me barely connected. Dear Russ Springer: Shane Victorino murdered that pitch the first time you threw it. What made you think it was a good idea to throw it again? My man-crush on Ryan Ludwick is growing by [...]

Sorry for my tardiness with this one, a long weekend out of town left me exhausted and unable to stomach writing about the week that was in Cardinal baseball.  Alas, here we go… How will Cardinal fans remember the Anthony Reyes era in St Louis?  As much as I was rooting for the guy, the [...]

It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve chimed in with one of these – but I have plenty to say: FINALLY!  Finally the Cards got a sweep.  Not without their fair share of trouble getting there, but finally a sweep against a club that should’ve been swept.  The club just wouldn’t quit this weekend. [...]

Another week, another frustrating set of performances from the Cards’ bullpen. Not that I haven’t appreciated him before, and I haven’t taken notice of his other-worldly performance in his career to-date, but Cardinal fans should really take pause at being so lucky to watch Albert Pujols on an everyday basis.  The man is an incredible [...]

Another Sunday, another series of chances wasted: It’s really hard to fault the Cardinals for Sunday’s loss.  They stopped as many Red Sox chances as they failed on themselves.  Sunday’s game felt like a late series World Series game, lots of fun. Mike Parisi had another rough (to say the least) outing.  I tried defending [...]

Happy Fathers’ Day to my readers with youngins at home. In the spirit of the Cardinals’ approach to the situation this weekend, I will also choose to ignore Friday night’s game (the Game Which Shall Not Be Named) and move on with the rest of my business – the Spitballs: Please folks, pray for Yadier [...]

Lots of ups and downs this week – let’s review: Anyone else feel like the Cardinals badly need a sweep? It should’ve happened in the Nats series, but instead Ryan Franklin did his best Jason Isringhausen imitation. They really need to get on a tear to get some confidence back, it would seem. Sooner or [...]

I’m going to try to start writing a weekly Sunday post which just kind of highlights my thoughts throughout the weekend. Here goes: Kelvin Jimenez proved me (and a bunch of other people) right. Kudos to Mo and TLR for taking immediate action. Welcome to the big show, Mark Worrell! Given Tony’s usual penchant for [...]
