Please take a moment and pause your game of Angry Birds long enough to vote from a bunch of people who dedicate far too much time in their basements writing about baseball.  Seriously, this means something to the bloggers who write the words that make the whole world sing.  They are the lyrical gangstas in [...]

That’s right.  We’re breaking out the “fancy” sweatpants for a shindig that starts this coming Saturday, and no expense shall be spared in the process (and by that I mean I’m getting my sweatpants dry-cleaned for the occasion).  The Cardinals have plans to host the United Cardinal Bloggers at Busch Stadium.  Shocking, but the organization [...]

As always, it’s a privilege to participate in the United Cardinal Bloggers roundtable, and it’s something that we take seriously at PH8 (or as seriously as we take anything at PH8).  With that in mind, we took a brief departure from the typical roundtable question and posed something a little lighthearted for our fellow bloggers [...]

Bottom of the 9th

by on November 22, 2010 · 0 comments

It’s the bottom of the 9th, and I’ve been brought into the game to seal the deal with a 10 run lead.  That’s how I would describe the last couple months at PH8.  I wasn’t around for most of the year, so I deserve very little credit for PH8′s UCB award win for “Best Team [...]

UCB Roundtable November 1st

by on November 1, 2010 · 1 comment

On Friday, October 29th, the team here at PH8 had an opportunity to fire off a question for the United Cardinal Blogger roundtable, and I gave it my best shot.  I went for a really nasty 12-6 curveball, but I hung it over the middle of the plate, instead.  Naturally, the UCB participants drilled it, [...]

Fancy that, one year ago Cardinal fans (or at least, yours truly) were concerning themselves about a contract extension for Albert Pujols. We raised the question about when to approach Pujols and with how much during the 2008 UCB Off-season Roundtable. Many of the responses were similar to “give him whatever he wants.” Now that [...]

Quick hits 10.19.09

First, Derek Zumsteg of USS Mariner, a great blog devoted to following (shocking I know) the Seattle Mariners, has developed a “2nd Guesser” app for the iPhone. Those of you who watch the Cardinals (or any other team for that matter), or need help making decisions while managing your Little League team, etc – check [...]

Without a doubt this is a list in flux, and I presume that’s the case for more folks than just yours truly. Last season’s list bore little resemblance to what it would’ve been in mid-July of this season, and neither of those would match with the list below. Even my late posting of this list [...]

[Ed. note - I know it's July.  I know I'm about four-ish weeks late with this post.  Sue me.  Better late than never, right?] I was lucky growing up where I did, about a half-hour east of St Louis – “on the Illinois side.” I was able to attend Cardinal games fairly regularly, thanks to [...]
