Yadier Molina

Every year the members of the United Cardinal Bloggers (UCB) pause for a few moments to bestow honors and blah, blah, blah.  Without any more of that ado that apparently there is much of for no reason, here is my UCB Awards ballot.

Sometime in mid-August (ok, August 12 to be exact – it’s right there on the Tweeter box) Cardinal fan Will Leitch began a dialogue “with” the Cardinals. Er, maybe AT the Cardinals is more appropriate. The first installment was posted Wednesday and the completion of the regular season was posted yesterday. With Will’s permission, and [...]
