Ballpark Village 101

by on February 8, 2013 · 0 comments

With 47 custom shovels at the ready to commemorate the event, a small army of Burberry-clad townsfolk braved the chilly weather in downtown St Louis.  They gallantly stepped outside of their luxury automobiles long enough to break ground for the first phase of Ballpark Village (BPV).  While this day has been long in the making, [...]

Every year the members of the United Cardinal Bloggers (UCB) pause for a few moments to bestow honors and blah, blah, blah.  Without any more of that ado that apparently there is much of for no reason, here is my UCB Awards ballot.

If nothing else, the annual Rawlings Gold Glove Award winners remind us that most voters probably don’t actually watch much baseball.  If they did, Derek Jeter would not have taken home the award in 2010.  If Rawlings has accomplished anything, it’s that they have got one thing right.   The additional step of naming finalists for [...]

The last earned run the Cardinals scored came on Monday evening in the top of the 6th inning against the Pirates.  Matt Holliday hit a home run off of A.J. Burnett, and that’s the last time the team scored an earned run.  Since that moment, opponents hold a 22-0 earned run advantage.  So, during the [...]

Grade Magic Mike

Some have questioned his use of the bullpen.  Others laud him for steering the ship through injury-plagued waters.  Then there is that small, misguided group that would like to hang the 2 walks by Rzepczynski on Tyler Greene somehow.  What about Matheny?  He’s the manager, the skipper, the big cheese.  If you had to give [...]

The Cardinals won the 2011 World Series and sit at 10 games above the .500 mark, but Olympic Gold Medalist McKayla Maroney is not the least bit impressed.  The “McKayla is not impressed” meme was started shortly after Maroney showed a visible sign of annoyance/displeasure at the XXX Olympics in London.  Since most people expect [...]

With the trade of Tyler Greene to the Houston Astros, the list of ex-Cardinals grew just a bit.  As a matter of fact, he might be the final piece to the most epic NotCardinals team ever.  Consider the potential NotCardinals 25-man roster.  Note that several ex-Redbirds have been excluded, but many belong on the 40-man [...]

Freeing Tyler Greene

It takes a lot for baseball fans in St. Louis to boo one of its own.  Maybe the final straw came when Tyler Greene watched a ball go through his legs last night during the 6th inning.  Maybe.  The E4 allowed 2 runs to score, although the situation likely dictated that at least 1 would [...]

No Sacred Cows Here

Be realistic, and please admit that you have certain players you do not wish to see leave the Cardinals or the farm system.  For whatever your reasons, you have grown emotionally attached to 1 or more, and the thought of them in another team’s uniform amounts to baseball sacrilege.  Well, try setting aside those thoughts [...]

Master Trade Baiting

While some see Matt Carpenter getting the start at 2nd base last night as just a way to get him some at-bats, I see something else.  I see the seemingly innocuous occurrence as a harbinger of something in the works.  How else might one explain the sudden need to get Matt some playing time?  After [...]
