Product Review: Out Of The Park Baseball

One of the great things about being in an organization such as the Baseball Bloggers Alliance is that you meet some great people that are working on some really neat things.  Brad Cook is one of those guys and the...  [Posted on May 10, 2013 7:27 AM]

Book Review: Bluegrass Baseball

Having a bit of time this evening, I decided to take a little bit of a whack at the pile of books that I have sitting on my desk, read but not reviewed.  The one on top was Katya Cengel's...  [Posted on April 13, 2013 10:56 PM]

Book Review: Connie Mack, The Turbulent & Triumphant Years

As I've mentioned before, the folks at University of Nebraska Press like me.  Which is great, because I don't think any other university's press puts out so many baseball books on such a regular schedule.  I could fill a couple...  [Posted on March 10, 2013 7:34 PM]

Book Review: Trading Bases

I'm not a gambler.  The most I do in that regard is the small ($15) Texas Hold'Em game that I play in every couple of weeks.  I don't know much about lines and juice and other betting jargon, nor do...  [Posted on March 7, 2013 10:35 PM]

Book Review: Stan The Man

As I've often noted, as a blogger I'm often gifted with baseball books by the publishers.  It's a wonderful perk of the gig and I really enjoy reading all of these tomes.  The problem is, they tend to pile up...  [Posted on January 23, 2013 10:13 PM]

Product Review: BiGR Headphones

I'm not really a music person.  Sure, I listen to some here and there (though very little that has come out in the last, oh, decade) but it's never been a big thing to me.  I can go weeks without...  [Posted on October 17, 2012 7:39 PM]

Book Review: One Last Strike

I've had occasion to review a number of books (as you can see if you look through the "book review" tag on this site) but there have been few, if any, that I've been more excited about reading than this...  [Posted on September 23, 2012 6:49 PM]

Book Review: The Team That Forever Changed Baseball And America

As you know, from time to time I'm sent baseball books to read over and review.  Thankfully, I've never actually been asked to do this quickly, because 1) they all seem to come at the same time and 2) I...  [Posted on July 27, 2012 9:56 PM]

Book Review: Starting And Closing

When I got the invitation to review John Smoltz's new book, Starting and Closing, I was of course willing and ready to jump on the chance.  When I realized that the framing convention was going to be his last...  [Posted on May 19, 2012 7:39 PM]

Book Review: 1924 And You Are There!

I've known of Jeff Polman's Strat-O-Matic based replays for a long while now, due to my connection with the Baseball Bloggers Alliance.  Jeff contacted me during his first blog and he's continued to be a part of the BBA through...  [Posted on May 2, 2012 7:26 PM]

Book Review: Banzai Babe Ruth

I've mentioned before that the great people at University of Nebraska Press will, from time to time, send along a book for me to read and hopefully review.  Every once in a while, though, they do a foolish thing and...  [Posted on April 20, 2012 10:46 PM]

Book Review: Baseball Fantography

As I've often mentioned, from time to time I get free baseball books in the mail.  Thankfully, publishers and promoters wildly overestimate my reach and influence and hope that I'll give their book a little writeup in this portion of...  [Posted on April 11, 2012 10:26 PM]

Game Review: Out Of The Park Baseball

The last few years, the great folks over at Out Of The Park Baseball have set me up with a review copy of their amazing game.  I don't think I got a chance to write a review last season, but...  [Posted on April 8, 2012 8:10 PM]

Book Review: Three For The Price Of One

As I've mentioned before, I am blessed in this blogging game to occasionally be sent free copies of books to review.  Right now I have a huge pile of them that I am working my way through, but I finished...  [Posted on March 31, 2012 6:36 PM]

Book Review: Pitching, Defense, and Three-Run Homers

One of the beautiful things about being a blogger is that, occasionally, you can stumble into a great situation.  That's what has happened to me, as somewhere along the line I've gotten on the University of Nebraska Press's reviewer list,...  [Posted on March 7, 2012 11:00 PM]

Book Review: Summer Of '68

Book Review: The Year of the Cardinals

As the World Series gets a little further in our rear-view mirrors, more and more media related to it continues to surface and, luckily, they keep sending me free copies of the stuff and asking me to review it.  I'm...  [Posted on November 28, 2011 11:19 AM]

World Series Film Review (And Your Chance To Win!)

Book Review: Wild Cards

Someone has to be first.As the story of the 2011 Cardinals unfolded, you knew that it was going to spawn numerous books.  I even said a few times on the various podcasts that the comeback that the Cards needed...  [Posted on November 15, 2011 9:50 PM]

Book Review: The Mets and A Moment In Time

One of the wonderful things about being a blogger is that people want to send you baseball books.  Now, personally, I have a motto.  My motto is, "Happiness is a pile of unread books".  Which means that when people...  [Posted on October 31, 2011 11:16 PM]

Ian O'Connor draws on extensive reporting and unique access to Derek Jeter that has spanned some 15 years to reveal how a biracial kid from Michigan became New York's most beloved sports figure and the enduring symbol of the steroid-free athlete.  [Posted on June 17, 2011 3:01 PM]

Book Review: Pujols More Than The Game

Book Review: High Heat

As I've said before, there's little better than getting a free book.  Normally, my requests for a review of a book come through this site.  However, I received one a while back in my capacity as founder and head of...  [Posted on April 16, 2010 11:28 PM]

Book Review: Joe Cronin, A Life In Baseball

Book Review: Heading For Home

Slight Movement in Cardinal News

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas.  There's not been much to talk about and I've not had a chance to get back to the blog much due to the family obligations, but I'm pretty sure you've not missed...  [Posted on December 29, 2009 9:21 AM]

Book Review: Munson

When I was contacted by the promoter of Munson: The Life and Death of a Yankee Captain, I wasn't quite sure what to think.  Obviously, this wasn't quite in the wheelhouse of this Cardinal blog, as Thurman Munson played his...  [Posted on August 2, 2009 8:08 AM]
