Texas Rangers

It’s not really necessary for me to include the year is it? David Freese made a name for himself (and probably millions of dollars, soon?) and found himself on the cover – that’s it at the right – of an A+E Networks Home Entertainment/MLB Productions package of one of “Baseball’s Greatest Games: 2011 World Series, [...]

The latest kerfuffle in baseball involves the suggestion that MLB could allow corporate sponsorships of teams, and those sponsors would be allowed to place logos on uniforms.  While the idea most certainly has some appeal for the Emperor of the Dark Force, Bud Selig, it sounds like a horrible idea to most rationale people.  Would [...]

Who will move on from the AL West division to face the National League representatives in the final round.  The Braves are the fan base beast of the NL East, the Giants took the NL West, and the NL Central gets 2 reps – the Cardinals and Cubs.  Why?  Because a blog about the Cardinals [...]

UCB 2012 AL Predictions

When a deadline approaches for members of the United Cardinal Bloggers, we take it seriously.  Once the deadline passes, and we have failed to meet said deadline, then we all get serious about taking deadlines seriously.  Eventually we reach a point where someone basically has to force one of us to take one for the [...]

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 local, national, and blog [...]

World Series Game Seven’s are best watched from the edge of a seat. I learned that last night as the Cardinals slowly, systematically – thankfully – secured their eleventh World Championship in franchise history. What a game. What a series. What a season. The Texas Rangers were the perfect, formidable foe for this season’s Fall [...]

“What are you doing here?” Tony La Russa to Lance Lynn, Game 5 It’s been a punch line since Monday night, but viewed in a different light, that line – that question – is really a microcosm of how the Cardinals’ 2011 season has turned out, no? They weren’t supposed to be here. Ten-and-a-half games [...]

[ED Note: I received an e-mail this morning containing an unsolicited story of one Cardinal fan's recollection of how he watched the Cardinals defeat the Rangers in Game 6 of the World Series.  PH8 Reader Matt led off the e-mail with this: "I had to sit down and type out my thoughts about last night.

Too many things are still floating through my head after last night’s magic and thankfully, I have that little distraction called work to get me right up to Game 7. No matter how many times this story started writing itself during the back and forth of possibly the greatest World Series finish, a Hollywood ending [...]

This Is Not 1985

by on October 23, 2011 · 0 comments

This is most definitely not 1985, and Ron “Mea” Kulpa is not Don Denkinger.  Don Denkinger was not solely responsible for the Cardinals losing game game 6 of the 1985 World Series, and Ron Kulpa was not solely responsible for the Rangers losing game 3 of the 2011 World Series.  Cardinal fans were upset in [...]
