1. Cardinal Player of the Year Matt Holliday Albert Pujols Brendan Ryan Write-in: __________ Is it really necessary for me to write this one up?  Mang raked again this season, carried the team through the first half.  Will he seek the dollars or the championships in seasons beyond 2011?  Or both? 2. Cardinal Pitcher of [...]

Josh and I were scheduled for a half-hour UCB Radio show tonight. So naturally, with some help from Daniel over at C70 at the Bat, we managed to turn it into an hour plus. Topics focused on, well, Albert Pujols’ arthroscopic debridement, a contract extension for Mang, and a few other choice conspiracy theories (done [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Trying to overcome nine walks from your pitching staff in one game is pretty difficult, yet there the Cardinals were, with the bases loaded and Yadier Molina at the plate. Alas, it wasn’t meant to be. As Brewers beat-man Tom Haudricourt Twittered during the game: Brewers-Cards, 4-4 in the 8th. If Brewers win, they pull [...]

Wa-hey!  That’s a winner! After another frustrating night on offense from the Cardinals (don’t know about you, but I find it virtually impossible to tell anymore if the Cardinal lineup is that bad, or if we are just seeing great pitching each night – let’s call it both), the Cards finally were able to make [...]
