Cardinal Odds And Ends

There's not been just a whole lot going on with the Cards since the end of the baseball season, but enough small items to sneak in a post during the midst of the Exit Interview series.The biggest is probably that...  [Posted on November 5, 2012 7:16 AM]

Around The Blogs: Catch Up Edition

Way back in the history of this blog, I used to do a little "around the blogs" kind of link post to see what else was writing about.  I've gotten a number of links in my mailbox and wanted to...  [Posted on August 22, 2012 11:43 AM]

"We Have A Chance To Be Better"

There's no doubt that the spring is time for optimism.  Rookies are heralded as the next great player.  Pitchers are said to have a new pitch that will dominate for them.  And, of course, everyone's in the best shape...  [Posted on March 1, 2012 7:03 AM]

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]

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]

"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]

Taking Joy Where You Can

Been a while since we chatted about the team.  Let's catch up.Wednesday (9-4 loss vs Los Angeles)Hero: Skip Schumaker.  Four hits, a run and an RBI.  On a day when there wasn't much of interest, Skip had a fine...  [Posted on August 29, 2011 9:53 AM]

Cardinals Head To Houston

I can't remember the last time a simple April series against a non-contender had so many different storylines, at least for the beginning of the series.Of course, the overarching one is that Lance Berkman is returning to his roots.  After spending all but...  [Posted on April 26, 2011 10:00 AM]

Time For Concern?

William commented on a post last week that the hardest thing about spring training is remembering that the performances mean nothing.  While in general, that's probably true, there have been some spring performances that have raised some eyebrows, both in...  [Posted on March 14, 2011 7:39 AM]

The Name of the Game Is Pitching

Three different games, three interesting pitching lines.  Granted, one of them was interesting in the car-wreck sort of way, but it may have a lot of bearing on the 2011 Cardinals.First up was Kyle Lohse on Friday.  Lohse has the potential to...  [Posted on March 7, 2011 12:00 PM]

Love Is In The Air

There's nothing much going on in Cardinal Nation, so here are a few things that have shown up in my mailbox.Before we get to that, though, I realize that I've not weighed in here about the return of the coaching...  [Posted on November 1, 2010 10:06 AM]

Creeping Toward The End

Who Are These Guys?

Is it possible that, during the All-Star Break, aliens abducted the St. Louis Cardinals and replaced them with clones?  Or that Tony La Russa gives an amazing motivational talk when he has three days to prepare?  It could be, perhaps,...  [Posted on July 19, 2010 10:34 AM]

A Holliday Weekend

It's late in the day, I've already written about my electronic tragedy of the weekend and I've worked up my Baseball Digest column (to be up later this evening, probably).  Let's take a quick crack at this weekend's series with...  [Posted on June 21, 2010 4:36 PM]

Soup's On? Really?

Derrick Goold has the scoop:"Suppan back with Cardinals per agent."Speaking for a lot of Cardinal fans, I want to say, "Are you kidding me?"Let's get this out of the way.  There's nobody in Cardinal Nation that doesn't like Jeff Suppan...  [Posted on June 10, 2010 3:24 PM]

Cardinals Back At It

The Cardinals took yesterday off.  I don't mean they didn't have a game, they weren't expected to work out or anything.  A team that has gone and gone since the beginning of spring training probably needed that day at home...  [Posted on April 14, 2010 8:12 AM]

Subtle Shifts

Stumbling Out Of The Gate

Well, that wasn't the way Cardinal fans wanted to see things get started.OK, let's put in the usual disclaimers.  It was a spring training game.  Most of the regulars weren't in there, and you can't take a lot away from...  [Posted on March 5, 2010 7:56 AM]

Starting The Routine

One Day Away

Pitchers and catchers "officially" report tomorrow.  In actuality, almost the entire team is already in Jupiter or doing prep work before getting there.  Still, sitting here with 19 degree temperatures outside this morning, waking up to read about spring training...  [Posted on February 16, 2010 9:18 AM]

The Cardinal Family

More Mark McGwire-related comments came out this week, but instead of taking another pass at the hitting coach, I wanted to focus on a different aspect of the remarks.  Bob Gibson came out and dismissed comments from former first baseman...  [Posted on February 1, 2010 10:08 AM]

Twigs For The Stove

First off, congratulations to the Yankees.  I'm not a Yankee hater, due to their tradition mainly.  I'm not big on the fact that they spent so much and won, but when you look at how often they spent a ton...  [Posted on November 5, 2009 8:09 AM]
