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]


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]


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]


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]


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]


Sometimes It Works

There's been a lot of talk this year about baserunning gaffes by the Cardinals and rightfully so.  Numerous big innings or rallies have been killed when St. Louis has been too aggressive on the basepaths.  Even last night we saw...  [Posted on May 14, 2013 7:13 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]


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]


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]


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]


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]


Closer Than It Had To Be

We've seen some good things out of this offense this season.  We've seen a few double-digit games and we've seen them adjust in mid-game, going the first four or five innings without denting the plate, then exploding to take over...  [Posted on April 16, 2013 6:56 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]


Walking The Walk

Adam Wainwright has said from Day 1 that he wants to be in St. Louis.  He has said that's where he grew as a player, where he's learned to be the pitcher that he is today.  He's said a lot...  [Posted on March 29, 2013 7:02 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]


One Way, Then Another

On Monday, my blog post outlined out the David Freese situation assuming that he was going on the disabled list.  On Monday afternoon, the team and Freese come out and say they are encouraged by the MRI and that he...  [Posted on March 27, 2013 6:53 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]


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]


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]


First Win In The Books

Oh, how we are going to miss Houston.Not long-term, of course.  With Jeff Luhnow in charge down there it wouldn't be surprising to see Houston contending for divisional titles in a couple of years.  However, they aren't there yet and...  [Posted on February 26, 2013 6:59 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

What Do You Get A Cards Fan For Christmas (When They Already Own Game 6)

Exit Interviews: The Synopsis

Exit Interview: Matt Holliday

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 31, 2012 7:15 PM]


We Don't Get To Write The Endings

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]


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]

All The Marbles

Amazing how quickly things can go from great to iffy, huh?Before Game 4, all the momentum was in the Cardinals' direction.  They'd pounded the Nationals in the last two games and looked to wrap this thing up quickly.  Instead, as...  [Posted on October 12, 2012 7:06 AM]


Time For The Real Show

I think it was David Ross that I read in one of the stories about how that wild card game didn't seem like the playoffs.  That is was more like a tough loss during the season than the culmination of a playoff...  [Posted on October 6, 2012 6:12 PM]


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]


Backing In And That's OK

In 2006, the Cardinals lost seven in a row in the last couple of weeks, tightening a race.  They wound up losing their last game as well, but backed it when Houston lost.  That also meant they didn't have...  [Posted on October 3, 2012 6:30 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]


Glimpsing The Finish Line

Recently, I've been running through episodes of Fringe on Amazon.  (I'm almost done with season 3--no spoilers!)  If you aren't familiar with the show, it's (at least so far) a show about two separate dimensions, this universe and "the...  [Posted on September 26, 2012 6:26 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]
