Tyler Greene

  The seemingly rhetorical question may actually deserve an answer this time.  Why must reality dictate that what our brains believe to be “right” be so far on the bad side of “wrong”?  How can intuition fail so often?  More importantly, why do we lie to ourselves in an effort to convince ourselves (and others) [...]

  Perhaps no Cardinals player receives more scrutiny day in, day out for performances in small sample sizes than Tyler Greene.  Greene has no shortage of detractors who have watched him struggle during his stretches at the major league level, and he has a dedicated group of fans who manage to find some reason for [...]

Have an opinion about a particular player, coach, manager, team, or franchise you wish to express?  Try tossing stones 140 characters at a time on Twitter, and then wait for every keyboard jockey with a view contrary to yours to find you.  Either nature or some universal law entitles everyone to their own opinion, and [...]

  Indeed, the limitations of the 25 man roster impose certain constraints on the Cardinals that some teams do not have.  The Cardinals legitimately have greater than 25 players who have to varying degrees earned spots on the roster and potentially deserve some playing time.  For many teams, that “problem” represents a best-case scenario.  For [...]

Admit it.  The “Baby Birds” are no longer babies, if they ever really even were at all.  Maybe these guys seem new like a breath of fresh air, but most of them have been around more than a year or two.  Some of them have been in the organization for several years.  Consider some of [...]

Also, keep your hands and feet inside the ride at all times until the bandwagon comes to a complete stop.  Make sure you seats and tray tables are in the fully upright and locked positions.  In the unlikely event of a water landing, Logan Morrison‘s ego may be used as a flotation device. It may [...]

In this crazy world of ours, where nuclear war could break out at any moment, one must be ready for the worst at all times. Baseball is no different, and if any team should be doing as many duck-and-cover drills as infield drills, it’s the Cardinals. This is part of the deal when you stock [...]

Get used to that combination, in that order, Cards fans. Something tells me we may see plenty of wins from it this season. Remember when Mitchell Boggs said at the Winter Warm-Up that he “could compete with anybody” and expected himself to be “really good”? I do, and I think Mike Matheny was listening too. [...]

The Cardinals won on Opening Day, hooray! Quite the showcase last night for the Marlins, the City of Miami, and your World Champion Cardinals, eh? Some quick, stream-of-consciousness thoughts this morning: I’m happy for Mike Matheny, and clearly his players are too. Not that I was worried much about it personally, I think winning last [...]
