Whitey Herzog

I don’t know about you, but when I think Whitey Herzog, I think of people stealing things.  And when I think of people stealing things, I think of… uh, hang on, let me start over. I don’t know about you, but when I think of Sam’s Club, I think of a White Rat… er, that’s [...]

1967 Cardinals Reunion

by on October 2, 2012 · 0 comments

Do you like baseball?  Of course you do.  Do you also enjoy good food?  Duh.  Of course you do.  But do you like saving money and getting a discount on both baseball and food?  Heh.  Now that I’ve set the hook, let me reel you all the way in with an opportunity that might just [...]

When I think of John Francis “Jack” Buck (August 21, 1924 – June 18, 2002) and Darryl Andrew Kile (December 2, 1968 – June 22, 2002), words fail me.  My brain works at creating spontaneous thoughts, but the signals that tell the rest of my body how to operate fail after the one that first [...]

by on October 23, 2011 · 0 comments

This is most definitely not 1985, and Ron “Mea” Kulpa is not Don Denkinger.  Don Denkinger was not solely responsible for the Cardinals losing game game 6 of the 1985 World Series, and Ron Kulpa was not solely responsible for the Rangers losing game 3 of the 2011 World Series.  Cardinal fans were upset in [...]

A Gentlemen’s Duel

  The Versus network was showing “Greatest MLB Rivalries: Cardinals vs Cubs” the other night, and I happily volunteered one hour of my life to watching the show.  I pretty much know the contents by heart, but I never pass up the opportunity to listen to a retelling of the “Curse of the Billy Goat“.  [...]

On the morning of January 19th, I started collecting links – as many as I can find with minimal effort – that discuss the Albert Pujols contract discussions. Why? Who knows, yet here they are. Oh, and to serve you all, our three loyal readers! The Daily Pujols certainly won’t be a comprehensive list, but between [...]

On occasion, we’re happy to get e-mails from guys like Chris Jaffe that we consider friends of the site (since they’ve at least obviously set browser upon URL, at least in most cases) – and Chris is one who just happens to send along great links to his work at The Hardball Times. This time, [...]

The Herzog Identity

by on December 30, 2010 · 2 comments

For better or worse, baseball managers in St. Louis will probably be compared to Whitey Herzog for a long time to come.  Many fans (possibly an inordinate amount) who watched Cardinals baseball during the 80′s have a fondness for Herzog and his style of baseball that has not been equalled by Joe Torre or Tony [...]

[Ed. note - Once again we are taking part in a United Cardinal Bloggers project.  This month is the ever popular pre-season Roundtable discussions.  You can find the full schedule of roundtable questions and posts at the UCB website. I wrote and sent out this question one week ago, the night before Baby PH8 was [...]
