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]


T70 At The Mound

Yesterday was filled with so much negative pitching news off the field, it was great to get some good news on it.  That's exactly what the Cardinals got in another late night (for us) in San Diego, as Tyler Lyons...  [Posted on May 23, 2013 10:18 AM]


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]


Late Night Issues

Well, I'm glad I didn't stay up for that one.That's probably a bit unfair to say--and I did watch a few innings before the late hour and the storm knocking out DirecTV did me in--but it'd have been tough to...  [Posted on May 21, 2013 7:24 AM]


A Sinister Problem

sinister (adj): singularly evil or productive of evil; also, of, relating to, or situated to the left or on the left side of something; also, of ill omen by reason of being on the left.That's a long way to say...  [Posted on May 17, 2013 7:10 AM]


The Upper and Lower Range of a Weekend

The Cardinals threw two of the best games we've seen in a long time Friday and Saturday.  Even with that, though, the weekend was just bittersweet instead of wonderfully triumphant after Sunday's outing.  Can't have it all, I guess.We've already...  [Posted on May 13, 2013 6:45 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]


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]


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]


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]


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]


Everything's Coming Up Waino

The day back from an off-day and Adam Wainwright decided he'd dominate the news.First, he took on the Mets and looked pretty much like the Wainwright we hope to see once the season starts.  He did walk three in his...  [Posted on March 22, 2013 8:02 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]


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]


Wacha, Wacha Man

While the Cardinals may have scored double-digit runs for the third straight day, the offense was overshadowed by a presence on the mound, and it wasn't mean, lean Lance Lynn.Michael Wacha is becoming the story of the spring, and with...  [Posted on February 28, 2013 6:59 AM]


Exit Interviews: The Synopsis

So, after 2 1/2 weeks, 45 players, one manager, one general manager, and a whole lot of blog posts, the Exit Interview series has come to an end.  I hope you enjoyed it.  I know it gave me a better...  [Posted on November 11, 2012 3:35 PM]


Exit Interview: Fernando Salas

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 Mike...  [Posted on November 8, 2012 5:00 PM]


Ribs Are Overrated

There was so much buildup and excitement before yesterday's start by Chris Carpenter that I started to get concerned.  Baseball seems to love to "flip the script" and, after all, Carpenter is only human.  A human that had missed almost...  [Posted on October 11, 2012 6:28 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]


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]


Strengthening Their Position

After Friday, while there wasn't necessarily a state of panic within Cardinal Nation, there was definitely some unease.  The Cards had blown a ninth-inning lead and stood just a game and a half ahead of a surging Milwaukee squad....  [Posted on September 24, 2012 6:36 AM]


Live By The Sword, Die By The Sword

Last year, the Cardinals thrived with one last strike.  This year, their opponents are.For the third time in less than two weeks, the Cardinals were just a pitch away from winning a big ballgame, only to see a home...  [Posted on September 22, 2012 9:18 AM]


Happy Chris Carpenter Day!

Anyone that thought this day would come this year after Chris Carpenter had his surgery, please raise your hand.Yes, you in the back?  With your hand up?  Please move away from the rest of us so that we will...  [Posted on September 21, 2012 9:04 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]


Trying To Survive

First off, UCB weekend was a major success.  Lots of great times with some great people and I can't wait to write it all up for you.  That said, a proper post on the weekend will take some time that...  [Posted on September 11, 2012 9:28 AM]


Still Fighting

You know, if you looked at just the last two games by themselves, with no context, I think Cardinal fans would be fairly pleased with what they saw.  The Cards lost a game started by Stephen Strasburg, but they...  [Posted on September 3, 2012 9:10 AM]


The Plague

Someone go fumigate the travel bags and team plane.  Because, apparently, suckiness is contagious.Sure, the team has been struggling lately, but Adam Wainwright was on the mound.  Adam Wainwright.  The Wagonmaker.  The lanky sheriff that strides into town and...  [Posted on September 1, 2012 10:07 AM]


Thanks, Arizona!

Tim Tebow may have had the birthday, but the Cardinals got the gifts.(Side rant: I never watch ESPN anymore.  Maybe occasionally a few minutes of a ballgame, but on the whole, not really.  Part of the reason is because,...  [Posted on August 15, 2012 6:33 AM]


The Stopper

If there's one truism for this season, it's this--it's so good to have Adam Wainwright back.You have a Cardinal team still smarting from a fifteen-run smackdown and really needing a split against a contending team.  Unfortunately, the Giants were...  [Posted on August 10, 2012 8:44 AM]


The Sweep Is On

All weekend long, the Cardinals honored the 1982 World Champions with a reunion, special recognition, and even old uniforms.  Then they did their best impression of the 2004 squad and dominated Milwaukee all the way around.We've already covered most of...  [Posted on August 6, 2012 10:35 AM]


Four Out Of Five Ain't Good Enough

Apologies for the long gap.  Between work and birthday happenings, I wasn't able to get to writing.  If the Cards lose tonight, I might have to swear it off for a while again because they've played some excellent ball...  [Posted on August 5, 2012 4:34 PM]


Is This What We've Been Waiting For?

The Cardinals finished up a 6-1 home stand.  Yes, you read that right.  No 4-3, no win one, lose one, an actual good run of baseball.  Let's talk about the last two games before we get into whether we...  [Posted on July 27, 2012 10:50 AM]


Frustration Returns

If there's any word I've used on this blog regularly during the last couple of years, it would have to be inconsistent or some form of it.  Streaks and momentum seem to have no meaning to this squad and...  [Posted on July 18, 2012 7:35 AM]


Bitten By The Past

That's not exactly the way we hoped the Cards would start the second half.Facing a team ahead of them in the standings, a team they really needed to do well against, the Cards are swept due to, mainly, a...  [Posted on July 16, 2012 9:27 AM]


Winning When They Should

Two games against the Rockies, two wins.  That's what good teams are supposed to do, but it's not always been a given with this Cardinal squad.  Let's look at the last couple of nights.Wednesday (4-1 win)Hero: Matt Holliday.  There...  [Posted on July 6, 2012 12:02 PM]


Losing Twice

Before we get into all the stuff that happened on Tuesday, both on and off the field, let's take a moment to revel in Monday night's win, shall we?First off, Hero status is given to Allen Craig.  It's not...  [Posted on July 4, 2012 10:14 AM]


Wainwright Day

Before we get into looking at today's game and other issues around the Cards, I guess we should really take a gander at Wednesday's loss to the Marlins, huh?  Have to be complete and all that, but it was...  [Posted on June 29, 2012 11:37 AM]


The Beat Reporter's Nightmare

By their own admission, beat writers aren't necessarily fans of the team.  There has to be some emotional distance between them and the ones that they cover.  So while the pure fan can fully enjoy games like last night's...  [Posted on June 26, 2012 6:51 AM]


Exaggerated Reports

To paraphrase Mr. Twain, reports of the Cardinals' offensive demise have been greatly exaggerated.The activation of Jon Jay and Matt Carpenter (or the pitching staff of the Royals) seemed to give this team a spark this weekend.  After scoring...  [Posted on June 25, 2012 6:57 AM]


Ups And Downs

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend while pausing to reflect on just why we have such a holiday.  If you missed it, yesterday I posted the schedule of bloggers that are going to fill in starting next Thursday....  [Posted on May 29, 2012 7:47 AM]


The Wire Snaps

The Cardinals had been living dangerously the last few days.  Having never trailed in the division this year, they played their way into just a half-game lead with their stumbles in Los Angeles.  Tyler Greene saved them from second...  [Posted on May 25, 2012 9:06 AM]


Playing Like The Devil In The City Of Angels

I'm sure there was something good about the Cardinals trip to Los Angeles this weekend.  However, it might have been limited to hearing Vin Scully on the call because, otherwise, this was like checking into Hotel California--as much as they...  [Posted on May 21, 2012 6:53 AM]


Being Run Over

Did anyone get the license plate of that truck?After finishing up their first sweep of 2012, the Cardinals then faced Atlanta and wound up being swept for the first time this season as well.  Save for Friday night's game,...  [Posted on May 14, 2012 6:54 AM]


No Puns, Just Runs

There was no post yesterday because I had to travel out of town to do some work at a client's office.  Said client also reads this blog from time to time and gently teased about the title of the...  [Posted on May 9, 2012 6:50 AM]


Wainwrighting The Ship

I'd say that I took a personal vow not to write again until the Cards won a game, but we all know better than that.  A rough patch for the Cards did clear up yesterday, which makes getting back...  [Posted on May 7, 2012 6:34 AM]


New Month, New Results For Wainwright

Do you think that, after he was taken out of the game last night, Adam Wainwright looked around at his fellow Cardinals and said, "Where has this been all season?"Now, the Cards needed almost all of the 10 runs of...  [Posted on May 2, 2012 6:44 AM]


Cardinals 2, Cubs 1, Umpires 2

I don't like to complain about the umpires.  They have a tough job and often complaints about them are tinged with the bias of whatever side you are rooting for.  Even last night, the focus probably should be on...  [Posted on April 25, 2012 7:10 AM]


A Swashbuckling Weekend

Over the last couple of years, Pittsburgh has been like a home away from home for the Cardinals.  Even without Albert Pujols destroying Buc pitching, this weekend proved to be little different.  A quick recap:Friday (4-1 win)Hero: Lance Lynn....  [Posted on April 23, 2012 6:45 AM]
