Two Men Enter, But Which One Leaves?

Yesterday's game was billed as the deciding factor for the fifth starter slot.  Joe Kelly would start the game, Shelby Miller would come in afterwards, and we'd all get a good idea of who was going to take the last...  [Posted on March 15, 2013 6:59 AM]

Stan Musial At 92: Still The Man

As you know, tomorrow is Thanksgiving.  Many of us will gather around tables with family and friends, pausing to give thanks for all that we have.  If you are a Cardinal fan, when your head is bowed, likely a passing...  [Posted on November 21, 2012 7:35 AM]

The Legend of Matt Adams

Our good friends at Pitchers Hit Eighth have been on this bandwagon for quite some time, but yesterday, Matt Adams no doubt added a few more to that group.In the sixth inning, trailing by three but with the bases loaded,...  [Posted on March 7, 2012 7:01 AM]

New Bird In Camp

While he didn't make it to the actual workout yesterday, Carlos Beltran is now in Cardinals camp.  I'm not sure we ever thought we'd say those words!  It's like inviting the fox to hang out in the henhouse.  The...  [Posted on February 23, 2012 7:01 AM]

The Monday Before "Pitchers And Catchers Report"

Looking out my window, the snow--our first one of the year--is coming down.  It's hard to believe that the true start of spring happens this weekend.  (It won't be in a couple of days, when it hits 60 again.  Weather...  [Posted on February 13, 2012 12:00 PM]

UCB January Project: Top 5 Iconic Moments

Before we take on the latest of the United Cardinal Blogger projects, it seems to me that we have to define the terms of what we are looking for.  What does the dictionary say about iconic, for instance?Iconic (adj):...  [Posted on January 26, 2012 1:30 PM]

The State of Cardinal Nation, 2012

Ladies, gentlemen, fellow Redbird fanatics:Last night was the annual State of the Union address, given from the White House in Washington.  It was an (inspiring/depressing) speech, full of (uplifting messages/political malarkey) but it didn't address a major point of life in...  [Posted on January 25, 2012 6:51 AM]

Cardinal Nation Meets National Capitol

You can definitely turn the page on 2011 now.  The final coda has been completed with the Cardinals making the traditional trip to Washington to meet the president.Personally, I'm not a fan of this administration but for the second time...  [Posted on January 18, 2012 7:59 AM]

John Mozeliak: Man of the People

One would think a man who manages a $110 million payroll and just won perhaps the most improbable World Series Championship in history would be a bit cold...calculating...cautious.Not so with John Mozeliak. The man recently named "Executive of the Year"...  [Posted on January 15, 2012 9:10 AM]

A Cardinal Christmas Carol, Revisited

"Merry Christmas, Mr. Mozeliak."John Mozeliak, the current general manager of the St. Louis Cardinals, turned toward his door.  He'd been standing at his window, staring out and thinking.  Seems like he'd been doing a lot of that this week."Merry Christmas,...  [Posted on December 15, 2011 11:45 PM]

Putting A Bow On It

I promise, I'm not going to harp on Albert Pujols from now until the beginning of the season.  Odds are, this will be one of the last entries on him, but since he was introduced this weekend as an Anaheim...  [Posted on December 12, 2011 7:01 AM]

AP Now Stands For After Pujols

First off, I want to thank everyone who stopped by and read yesterday's post.  It was the most traffic I'd had in a long time, and topped my big spike in November, when visitors came to read why Albert...  [Posted on December 9, 2011 7:56 AM]

Hot Stove Stoked On Pujols Rumors

When I went to bed last night, I was feeling fairly good about the Cardinals and their talks with Albert Pujols.  I mean, they had an hour-long meeting with Dan Lozano and things looked to be moving in the...  [Posted on December 6, 2011 7:24 AM]

We Wish You A Cardinal Christmas

News Both Actual And Rumor

There were a couple of big pieces of Cardinal news yesterday.  One of them came with a press conference, one of them was passed around Twitter.  Odds are the latter wasn't actually news, but it is what counts for it...  [Posted on November 17, 2011 6:53 AM]

Book Review: Wild Cards

"A Small Bit of Churn"

Mike Matheny was introduced as the new Cardinals manager yesterday to rave reviews.  We've talked a good bit about Matheny and there wasn't much new that came out of yesterday's press conference, except maybe the fact that Matheny may be...  [Posted on November 15, 2011 6:34 AM]

And Then There Were Six

The title is a bit misleading, of course.  There have always been six candidates for the Cardinals' open managerial slot.  Now, however, all six of them have interviewed.  Are we any closer to getting a top guy?I'm sure the Cardinal...  [Posted on November 10, 2011 6:32 AM]

Why Albert Pujols Will Stay In St. Louis

We heard it a lot.  At the end of September and during every playoff series, we heard "this could be the last time Albert Pujols has an at-bat in a Cardinal uniform," sometimes tweaked with the last home appearance.  So...  [Posted on November 2, 2011 7:22 PM]

This Fairy Tale Still Has A Chapter

In 2004, the Cardinals trailed the Houston Astros three games to two in the National League Championship Series.  It was a tight affair that went into extra innings, before Jim Edmonds gave the franchise one of its iconic moments, smashing...  [Posted on October 28, 2011 8:29 AM]

Dying Quail Kills Cardinals

TS Eliot had it right.  The world didn't end last night, but the Rangers definitely didn't end the game with a blast.  Unfortunately, they didn't have to.There's a lot of focus on Albert Pujols this morning and him deflecting...  [Posted on October 21, 2011 9:00 AM]

Cardinals: Momentum Killers

I wrote back in August, after an Edwin Jackson start in Milwaukee even, that the Cardinals had no concept of momentum.  Thankfully, in some ways they still don't.The Cardinals--and more directly, Albert Pujols--made sure to stop Milwaukee's momentum before...  [Posted on October 11, 2011 6:36 AM]

Well, It's Worked Before
