Short And Sweep

It's pretty easy to split a two-game series.  It's a lot more satisfying when you can sweep them.(Proud parent alert: I missed all but the first inning of this one due to the boy's Little League game, which had much...  [Posted on May 29, 2013 7:32 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]


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]


Milling the Rockies

As outstanding as Shelby Miller was last night, it was almost overdue.  We shouldn't have been terribly surprised.This is a guy that took a no-hitter into the sixth in his very first major league start.  Who almost every start seems...  [Posted on May 11, 2013 11:01 AM]


Momentum Is A Fickle Thing

The Cardinals go to Milwaukee and can't score less than six runs a game, inspiring hope that the offense was starting to click and the Cards were going to go on a run.Eh, not so much.Lance Lynn made one mistake...  [Posted on May 8, 2013 7:10 AM]


Just Enough

You know when you were in school and you would study just enough to pass the test or get the B or whatever you had to have not to fail/ruin your GPA/stay eligible for scholarships?  That was pretty much the...  [Posted on May 1, 2013 6:59 AM]


Playing The Ace

Every five days, Adam Wainwright goes to the mound.  Which means every five days, we have the chance to see something special.Last night Jeff Passan tweeted out that you could argue Wainwright has been the best pitcher in baseball so...  [Posted on April 24, 2013 6:47 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]


Powering To A Series Win

The lights might have gone out in St. Louis last night, but yesterday afternoon, there was no threat of that at Busch Stadium.  There was plenty of power available for all save the Cincinnati Reds.We talked yesterday about calling Matt...  [Posted on April 11, 2013 7:24 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]


A Great Day Ruined

I'm a big believer in the Golden Rule.  As a Christian, it's one of those basic foundations of how I try to live my life.  The world would be better if we all did that, I'd suggest.  That said, every...  [Posted on April 9, 2013 6:47 AM]


Coming Out Of The Trance

"And when I snap my fingers, you will realize you can hit Giants pitching."Whomever snapped their fingers and pulled the Cardinals out of being mesmerized by anyone hurling the baseball wearing a San Francisco uniform should have done it a...  [Posted on April 8, 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]


UCB Project: 2013 National League Central Predictions

After sorting through the American League and the National League East, the middle of the week brings us to the best division in baseball.  It's not perhaps the best as in the strongest or best as in the most star-laden,...  [Posted on March 27, 2013 11:15 AM]


Taking The Fifth

As we expected before the spring (though not necessarily throughout the camp), Shelby Miller will be the fifth starter in the Cardinal rotation.  While the loss of Jason Motte, freeing up a bullpen spot, didn't hurt Miller's case (as Joe...  [Posted on March 26, 2013 6:59 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]


A Relieved Cardinal Nation

While the Cardinals did play yesterday and actually scored, snapping another of those long scoreless streaks, the best news that came out likely was in Derrick Goold's weekly chat.  Goold noted that there was no truth to the idea that...  [Posted on March 19, 2013 7:41 AM]


Crazy Rumor Weekend

When the games on the field aren't that interesting, it seems like the off-the-field stuff makes up for it.  The Cardinals were shut out both Saturday and Sunday, capping a week of limited offense, but were quite active in the...  [Posted on March 18, 2013 7:57 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]


UCB Project: Playing Pepper

For the fifth straight year, Playing Pepper returns to C70 At The Bat.  If you aren't aware, this series helps get a feel for the other 29 teams in baseball by asking those that follow them the closest--their bloggers.  We've...  [Posted on March 11, 2013 11:00 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]


Power Show

It was almost like an episode of Oprah yesterday.  "You get a home run, and YOU get a home run.  Everybody gets a home run!"While it wasn't quite that bad--the Cards didn't score 20+ runs or anything--all of their scoring...  [Posted on March 7, 2013 9:09 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]


A-Thumping We Will Go

You know that on those spring road trips, a lot of the regulars pull rank and don't have to go.  It gives them rest and it avoids any stiff backs or any other bus-related injuries.  So yesterday's lineup had no...  [Posted on February 27, 2013 7:01 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]


Connections

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: Matt Adams

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 24, 2012 10:00 AM]


UCB Project: Top 7 Cardinal Prospects

Every year about this time, the United Cardinal Bloggers sit down with one of their trademark projects, listing out the top seven prospects from the Cardinal organization.  Before we take a look at what my list looks like for...  [Posted on September 28, 2012 7:15 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]


Pick An Adjective

Embarrassing.  Frustrating.  Ugly.  Back-breaking.  Historic.  Anger-inducing.  Aggravating.Pick your word and it fits last night's debacle between the Cardinals and the Giants.  It started rough, got worse and finished up as a spectacle worthy of an R rating for graphic...  [Posted on August 9, 2012 6:47 AM]


Stopping The Bleeding

When your team needs a shot in the arm, a big stand from the mound, it's obvious that you are going to call......Jake Westbrook?Believe it or not, Westbrook was the one that stood tall last night, throwing a complete...  [Posted on June 21, 2012 6:54 AM]


Not What The Doctor Ordered

You've got an offense that's struggling.  I don't necessarily have a solution, but I gotta think facing last year's AL Cy Young and MVP isn't on the short list.Cardinals had an off day yesterday and flew up to Detroit,...  [Posted on June 19, 2012 9:15 AM]


A Week+ Of Inconsistency

Did I miss anything?Before I get into starting a recap of the last almost week and a half, I want to again thank those that took the time to put up quality work here at my blog while I was...  [Posted on June 18, 2012 9:30 AM]


Moral: Don't Dig The Hole

The Cardinals mounted a furious rally last night, scoring as many runs in the ninth as they did in the rest of the game.  Unfortunately, all that meant was that they lost by one instead of five, because they...  [Posted on June 6, 2012 6:47 AM]


UCB Progressive Game Blog: The Recap

A couple of days ago, I titled a post "June Has To Be Better, Right?"  Two days into the month, I'm afraid we've gotten an answer.No, no it doesn't.It's getting to the point where we as the United Cardinal...  [Posted on June 2, 2012 7:45 PM]


NOOOOOOOOOO!

 This is what I put up on Twitter yesterday afternoon when the lineup was announced:  That's actually the strongest looking Cardinal lineup I've seen in a while.-- Cardinal70 (@C70) June 1, 2012 And it was. You had Carlos Beltran,...  [Posted on June 2, 2012 10:58 AM]


Ups And Downs

Good News, Everyone: Vacation Time Again

If you are a regular reader of this blog, you know that every year I spend about a week taking my wife and kids up to southeastern Ohio to visit her family and friends.  Even though we're in Reds...  [Posted on May 28, 2012 6:00 PM]


Word Of The Day: Sweep

The Cardinals got to see an old friend last night.  Then they showed him why he was an old friend and not a current one.I think it was key that the Cards were able to bounce back from that...  [Posted on May 24, 2012 7:15 AM]


The Return

Right now on this Cardinal team, there's no player I enjoy watching more than Adam Wainwright.  It was so disappointing to have him miss last year with Tommy John surgery and, though we've seen some flashes, we've not really...  [Posted on May 23, 2012 7:27 AM]


Greene Light

There's always someone that gets the brunt of fan ire on the Cardinals.  For many years it was J.D. Drew.  Chris Duncan took a turn for a while.  Most recently, Colby Rasmus was the whipping boy.This season, it's Tyler...  [Posted on May 22, 2012 7:16 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]


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]


Loose Hips Sink Reds' Ship

I still have no idea what that was about, but it said a lot about this clubhouse.In the third inning, Fox Sports Midwest cameras caught Adam Wainwright and Jake Westbrook talking with each other next to the dugout steps....  [Posted on April 19, 2012 7:10 AM]


An End And A Beginning

Today is what Cardinal fans, especially those in the St. Louis area, have been dreaming about since Allen Craig caught that fly ball last October.The home opener always takes on the trappings of a quasi-religious ceremony, what with the Clydesdales...  [Posted on April 13, 2012 7:30 AM]
