Official Team of Captain Taggart

"Never give up, never surrender" was the catchphrase of Captain Quincy Taggart of the fictional show (and real movie) Galaxy Quest.  Since it was set in the future, it's obvious Taggart grew up a Cardinals fan.We've not seen a lot...  [Posted on May 30, 2013 7:02 AM]


Ain't Nothing Going To Break Their Stride

The Cardinals lost as many pitchers as they did games over this long holiday weekend.  That seems to be about par for the course the season; no matter how many obstacles get thrown in their way, the Cards just throw...  [Posted on May 28, 2013 2:00 PM]


Bouncing Back In Grand Fashion

Last time out, Adam Wainwright struggled against the Mets.  For most of the year, Daniel Descalso has struggled against everybody.  Last night, well, last night was good for everybody.There's no doubt that Dirty Dan is the Hero of last night's...  [Posted on May 22, 2013 7:10 AM]


Brewing Up Some Dominance

The Cards have now played the Brewers 10 times this season.  They wish they could play them 100 more.After winning two of three against the Milwaukee squad, St. Louis has now won eight of 10 against them this season.  David...  [Posted on May 20, 2013 6:44 AM]


Winning Creatively

The Cardinals have won with dominant starting pitching.  They've done that quite a lot this season, actually.  They've won with some big thumpers, though not quite as often.  When a team is winning this regularly, they've got to mix it...  [Posted on May 16, 2013 6:54 AM]


Churning Them Out

The Cardinals ran another young pitching prospect to the mound.  The results were delightfully familiar.John Gast threw five scoreless innings before running into a spot of trouble in the sixth.  Even that wasn't entirely of his own making, as two...  [Posted on May 15, 2013 7:10 AM]


Picking Themselves Up

After their six-game winning streak was snapped, the Cardinals were in the ugly position of possibly getting swept at Wrigley Field by the last place Cubs.  (That's what a short series will do for you.)  Now, anytime you are going...  [Posted on May 9, 2013 8:43 AM]


Mopping Up The Brewers

I know, the traditional cleaning implement in this situation is a broom, but sweeping up spilled product from a brewmaster just isn't going to get you very far.  The Brewers were thoroughly cleaned up and out this weekend, so any...  [Posted on May 6, 2013 7:03 AM]


UCB Progressive Game Blog Postgame: Winning The Battle

Welcome into the UCB studios as we recap what happened in today's game, the details of which are thoughtfully supplied by the whole crew, from Aaron Miles' Fastball to Cards Tied For First.  There was plenty to keep people busy...  [Posted on May 4, 2013 8:25 PM]


Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

There's a reason while the Cardinals have been recognized as one of the more environmentally-conscious teams in baseball.  Some teams would have seen a six-run lead as something to waste, using that cushion and cruising to a 6-2 win or...  [Posted on May 3, 2013 7:09 AM]


Longball and Shortball

It was incredible yesterday.  The Cardinal offense....how do I describe this.....they put on something that was so rare.  It was....well, I believe they call it a rally.On the afternoon after having all their runs score on a Matt Holliday home...  [Posted on May 2, 2013 6:59 AM]


Going First To (Almost) Third

UCB Weekend was, as always, a completely enjoyable time full of great people, good times and memorable moments.  I hope to sit down and write about the dinner and the event with the Cardinals shortly, but in the meantime, the...  [Posted on April 30, 2013 6:33 AM]


Finishing The Task

For one evening, at least, things worked the way they were supposed to.  The starter had a strong outing, the offense did just enough (though, unsurprisingly, they could have done more) and the much-maligned bullpen closed the door.  It's a...  [Posted on April 23, 2013 6:49 AM]


Riding The Roller Coaster

Computer glitches this morning have already cost me a good chunk of my blogging time, so let's jump straight into this and see how far we can get.  There's plenty to talk about in relation to the last three games,...  [Posted on April 22, 2013 10:35 AM]


Last Night's Movie: Les Miserables

There have been some yucky games over the past few years, but last night's might have ranked right there at the top of them.  Which is saying something, given that this team was no-hit last season.At least with the no-hitter,...  [Posted on April 18, 2013 6:51 AM]


Ruining The Moment

With two innings to go yesterday, the Cardinals were on the brink of something pretty extraordinary.  Not only were they in position for the sweep, but they just had to get six outs and they could blank the Brewers for...  [Posted on April 15, 2013 6:46 AM]


Adams Power and Light

Matt Adams needs a beard.I mean, you can't call a guy Grizzly Adams if he's clean shaven, can you?  The Royals already call Billy Butler Country Breakfast, so something like that is out.  Adams really needs a nickname, especially if...  [Posted on April 10, 2013 6:44 AM]


Prizefight

I'll start this off with a caveat that should surprise no one: I didn't see about half this game.  I don't think many did that aren't in college or at least didn't have to go work today.  It's not a...  [Posted on April 4, 2013 6:59 AM]


Tolling The Bell

The Cardinals were like a strange version of Pavlov's dog last night.  They started salivating when Heath Bell came in, then they rang him.To be fair, the Cards already had a 3-1 lead when Bell entered the ball game.  Though...  [Posted on April 3, 2013 6:43 AM]


Unfulfilled Promise

There's a lot of hope and excitement that surrounds Opening Day.  The problem is, by the end of the night only one team continues to feel that way.  Last night, that team wasn't the Cardinals.There wasn't one facet of the...  [Posted on April 2, 2013 6:47 AM]


Here's Where The Fun Begins

We've waited all winter for this.  We've dealt with injuries, trades, and questionable signings to get to this moment.  We've debated ideas and made predictions.  Ever since Matt Holliday popped out to Marco Scutaro last October, we've looked for this...  [Posted on April 1, 2013 6:44 AM]


A Twist On Survivor: Jupiter

Every spring, Derrick Goold follows what he calls Survivor: Jupiter.  He keeps track of who is the last player not to appear in a spring training game.  It's a neat diversion and I think Adron Chambers won this year, though...  [Posted on March 25, 2013 6:46 AM]


Mene, Mene, Tekel, Parsin

While it wasn't as dramatic as a hand appearing out of nowhere and making out the roster on the side of the Jupiter clubhouse, the writing on the wall was starting to become clear.  Yesterday, Ronnie Cedeno was weighed on...  [Posted on March 20, 2013 7:59 AM]


Getting It Out Of The Way

Let's look at the positive side.  At least these games don't count for anything.  Better to have this in the spring than in May or June, right?That's the way to look at this because otherwise, this losing streak would get...  [Posted on March 13, 2013 7:06 AM]


Halfway Home

We've hit the midpoint of spring training.  Three weeks from today, we're avoiding stupid April Fool's jokes and focusing on the pitching matchup out in Arizona.  It's a long spring this year, what with the World Baseball Classic going on,...  [Posted on March 11, 2013 8:15 AM]


Confirming The Obvious (And Not As Obvious)

You know, during the winter, there were a lot of days where there just wasn't anything to talk about.  Things were slow and we grasped at whatever crumbs we could find.  Yesterday, well, yesterday wasn't one of those days.Let's start...  [Posted on March 8, 2013 6:54 AM]


The Ride Starts Early

Last year, the Cardinals were a feast or famine team at times.  Score big or score none.  You weren't always sure what team was going to show up.  While the traditional spring caveats (it's early, it's spring, not the makeup...  [Posted on March 5, 2013 11:15 AM]


Losses On And Off The Field

While the Cardinals had trouble with Washington this weekend, the focus by Sunday was on what they lost away from the diamond.  The news most of us had been anticipating came along and Rafael Furcal was shut down from baseball...  [Posted on March 4, 2013 9:25 AM]


Baseball, Blessed Baseball

What a wonderful weekend.  Baseball has made its return, albeit in exhibition games where the scores don't mean much (though, as the Yankees found out, you can't call them meaningless games).  We get to hear and see the crack of...  [Posted on February 25, 2013 7:01 AM]


Elbowing Into The Conversation

There are headlines in the spring that are fun to read.  "Wainwright Faces Hitters."  "Taveras Takes His Cuts."  Stuff like that is what we want out of our spring training coverage, especially in the first week.  We want to hear...  [Posted on February 20, 2013 7:09 AM]


Connections

If you haven't already, you must read the outstanding piece by Jenifer Langosch over at the official site, detailing the mentor/mentee (is that a word) relationship between some of the veterans and some of the youngsters coming up.  It's a...  [Posted on February 19, 2013 7:06 AM]


The Lent Of The Baseball Fan

Looking back over some of my old posts, it seems I make this analogy every year since at least 2009, but this year it fits so closely that I must make it again.If you aren't of the Christian faith or...  [Posted on February 11, 2013 8:00 AM]


A Quick Minute with Daniel Descalso...

A small structural change from last year: The Cardinals are bringing each player through the curtain and down the corridor to talk with the trainer before or after their sessions. As a result, Daniel Descalso wandered down the hall and...  [Posted on January 21, 2013 9:34 AM]


Skipping Town

Exit Interviews: The Synopsis

I Sense A Disturbance In The Force

Four years ago on Halloween, I dressed up the St. Louis squad in costumes from a galaxy far, far away.  Two years ago, for Star Wars Day (May the fourth, of course), I compared the then-Cardinals to Star Wars characters....  [Posted on October 31, 2012 11:45 AM]


Exit Interview: Daniel Descalso

To give myself a reason to look back on this season, I've started this series of blog posts to review each player that spent time in St. Louis during 2012.  More summaries than anything, I imagine the player coming into...  [Posted on October 27, 2012 4:00 PM]


Rain Delay Theater

So the Cards were this close to finishing off the Giants for another night when Mother Nature decided to get in on the fun.  Right now, the Cards are still sitting in the clubhouse, nursing a 3-1 lead and waiting...  [Posted on October 17, 2012 8:32 PM]


Incre-DD-ible

These things don't happen.They don't, they just don't.  And when they do happen, like they did last year in Game 6, they don't happen again.  Everyone gets all excited about "hey, they've done it before" but the other team knows...  [Posted on October 13, 2012 11:17 AM]


Quieting The Noise

So I gotta figure there's a lot fewer Chicken Littles in Cardinal Nation today.  Twelve runs will do that.The Cards got behind again in the second, allowing a run to the Nationals.  Jaime Garcia wasn't sharp and apparently there...  [Posted on October 9, 2012 6:38 AM]


Squandering The Advantage

When the Cardinals went four innings without getting a hit, there was a feeling it would catch up with them.When they left runners on in scoring position, there was a feeling of unease about the whole situation.When they loaded...  [Posted on October 8, 2012 7:24 AM]


There's No Credit For Style Points

An INFIELD FLY is a fair fly ball (not including a line drive nor an attempted bunt) which can be caught by an infielder with ordinary effort, when first and second, or first, second and third bases are occupied, before...  [Posted on October 6, 2012 10:31 AM]


Playoff Bound--But Which Playoff?

The Cardinals will be playing after Wednesday night, after Game 162.  Last night's win clinched at least a share of the second wild card, meaning that at worst they'd have a playoff with the Dodgers before a playoff with...  [Posted on October 2, 2012 6:35 AM]


A Nice, Quiet Win

When you run out the pitcher with the highest winning percentage in baseball against a team that is on the verge of losing its 100th game, you would expect that there wouldn't be a lot of drama.  Thankfully, this...  [Posted on September 19, 2012 6:33 AM]


Could Have Been Better, Could Have Been Worse

The Cardinals played their closest wild card rivals this weekend and were so very close to at least a series win, if not a series sweep.  Bullpen issues kept them from putting their stamp on the wild card, but...  [Posted on September 17, 2012 6:36 AM]


Living Right In LA

Something had to give last night.  Thankfully, it was on the Cardinals' side.With both teams doing their darndest to let someone else take the wild card, the Cards were able to break through and get a 2-1 win.  Obviously,...  [Posted on September 14, 2012 7:00 AM]


Anyone Seen A Utensil?

Hey, I was trying to set the table and I'm missing something.  I've got the spoon, I've got the knife....Oh, there the fork is.  Sticking out of the back of the Cardinals.OK, that's an overexaggeration.  The point still holds, though....  [Posted on September 13, 2012 6:43 AM]


Heading For Home

The Cards start the last four weeks of the season today.  Hopefully, it goes much better than Wednesday did.There was a lot of complaining before that game about the lineup that Mike Matheny ran out there.  No Matt Holliday,...  [Posted on September 7, 2012 7:07 AM]
