Tyler Greene

It’s time that the little Napoleonic portion of my brain comes out to play a bit.  Why?  I’ve heard enough nonsense from the talking heads on television.  If there is going to be absolute nonsense, then it might as well come from me, and it might as well be at least somewhat amusing. UNTRUTHS: The [...]

Build it Backwards

by on March 3, 2011 · 2 comments

It’s one thing to look at the 2011 Cardinals and think about tweaking one thing here or making an adjustment there.  Rebuilding is an altogether different approach, but few people really want to think about the “R” word right now.  What about looking at the team by deconstructing it first?  It’s like taking apart your [...]

The Tyler Greene Project

by on January 18, 2011 · 4 comments

Since being taken by the St. Louis Cardinals in the 1st round of the 2005 amateur draft, Tyler Greene has probably taken more bus trips than most London tour guides.  Technically, he’s made about a dozen different stops (including repeats), and the former 30th overall pick has amassed a minor league career comprised of 550 [...]

I’m going to take a different approach to this.  Everyone clearly has their opinion of whether Chris Carpenter‘s “aside” with Brendan Ryan last night was appropriate or not, and forced to give *my* opinion, I’d probably side with a little bit of what everyone says. Carp is a little extreme sometimes.  About pretty much everything. [...]

Color me puzzled. Allen Craig was hitting .051 and doesn’t really have a position.  I get it.  Not necessarily for Aaron Miles, but that’s not terribly shocking on a Tony La Russa run ballclub. Tyler Greene and Joe Mather have struggled at the plate, it makes sense that their status on the club might be [...]

Now that the current St. Louis shortstop appears off the Troy Glaus recovery program, I felt it was a good time to close out the infield on our, ahem, rather late look at the 2009 Cardinals. Brendan Ryan has every opportunity to lock down a key defensive position for as long as he wants it, [...]

As a failed former third baseman, I know just how crucial and difficult this position can be to a successful club. This becomes even more apparent when multiple players are used to try and lock down the hot corner. Some teams can hide an offensive liability around the diamond but rarely, if ever, does the [...]

Earlier this week, Fox Sports Midwest studio anchor and co-host of the “Parris and Burwell” radio show Pat Parris posted to his blog on the 101 ESPN website, indicating he had the answer for the Cardinals’ offensive struggles. Please, Pat, do tell! Instant Help For Offense…Bat Pitcher 9th With a title like that, it seemed [...]

Yeah, I know…it’s not really reveille when it goes off at 4pm.  Consider this the “sleeping in” version of the Reveille… —– Ryan Ludwick hits the shelf.  Todd Wellemeyer gets creamed.  Lineup still not hitting.  Cards and Pirates are on the verge of combustion during this series via the beanball. Am I missing something, or [...]

Those of you listening to 1380 in St Louis today may find this duplicative, same if you read Bernie’s Press Box over at the STLToday forums. If you fit into neither of those groups, this may provide helpful for you.  I listened to Bernie’s segment with Cardinals GM John Mozeliak this afternoon, and there were [...]
