Boggs-ing Down

Who knew that the stellar play by Alcides Escobar on Wednesday night's game won a game for the Royals on Thursday?With Edward Mujica and Trevor Rosenthal off-limits due to their recent usage (and, in Rosenthal's case, warming up even when...  [Posted on May 31, 2013 7:01 AM]


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]


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]


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]


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]


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]


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]


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]


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]


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]


Swatting a Nat With a Broom

Amazing how three straight wins over a serious contender can give you a new perspective on a team, huh?  The Cardinals limped into Washington with a leaky bullpen and questions about what this team was going to be like.  They...  [Posted on April 25, 2013 6:46 AM]


A Place In The Middle

[Mal jumps four marbles] Zoë: That's a bold move. Mal: I live on the edge. [Zoe jumps six of his marbles] Jayne: Nice work [idiot]. Mal: [as Zoe chuckles] I've given some thought to moving off the edge. Not an ideal location. Might get a...  [Posted on April 19, 2013 6:49 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]


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]


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]


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]


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]


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]


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]


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]

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]


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]


Another Day, Another Rout

Blast it, I'm starting to get used to this type of game, the large-offense, small-pitching type which leaves the Cardinals comfortably in hand by the end of nine innings.  I know it won't continue, but even in spring, it's fun...  [Posted on March 1, 2013 7:29 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

Carpenter Speaks, Others Throw

For most of the world, the Pope's retirement was the biggest press event involving cardinals.  Not so much in St. Louis, of course, because Chris Carpenter coming to the microphone can top even the Holy Father in baseball heaven.Carpenter spoke...  [Posted on February 12, 2013 7:00 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]


Settling Accounts

While Stan Musial is still strongly in our thoughts (and more links about him in a bit), the Cardinals have started to move on with preparations for the 2013 season.  Yesterday, that meant making sure there was some stability in...  [Posted on January 23, 2013 7:12 AM]


Skipping Town

Exit Interviews: The Synopsis

We Interrupt This Series

Not the World Series, though I will say that watching the Giant pitchers dominating what is a very powerful Detroit Tigers staff makes me feel a little better about the way the NLCS ended.  As of this moment the Tigers...  [Posted on October 28, 2012 9:50 PM]


Exit Interview: Matt Carpenter

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 25, 2012 6:00 PM]


An Unexpected Position

Well, this isn't where we thought we'd be in the afterglow of Thursday, is it?Sadly, it was foreseeable.  After all, Barry Zito is one of those lefties that, no matter how much the Cardinals should be able to hit him,...  [Posted on October 22, 2012 6:55 AM]


There's No Credit For Style Points
