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]


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]


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]


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]


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]


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]


UCB Weekend 3: Feels Like Home

It's been a week since a majority of the members of the United Cardinal Bloggers met in St. Louis for the third straight year.  This trip, affectionately called UCB Weekend (with its own Twitter hashtag and, this year, Bonfyre dedicated...  [Posted on May 5, 2013 3:07 PM]


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]


Questions Relevant To May The Fourth

A wonderful win by the Cardinals last night, as they use a slew of rookies to put up a 6-1 win.  We'll talk more about that in another post, likely Monday's weekend wrapup.  Also today is the sixth annual UCB...  [Posted on May 4, 2013 11:25 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]


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]


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]


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]


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]


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]


The Wagonmaker Rides High

It sounded like it was only a matter of time.  Thankfully, this time the sounds were right.Yesterday afternoon, it leaked out that the Adam Wainwright negotiations had reached a productive end.  Wainwright will sign a five year, $97.5 million extension...  [Posted on March 28, 2013 6:46 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]


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]


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

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]


Off Day Linkage

As you know, the Cardinals were off yesterday, one of three off days before the end of the spring schedule.  Which means there was less to write about, unless you wanted a breakdown of Michael Wacha's boat ride or a...  [Posted on March 6, 2013 7:12 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]


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]


New Spring Worries

The Last Week Without Baseball

Look at the calendar.  We're always working for the weekend, of course, but more so this week than most.  See that, right there on Saturday?  Yep, that's the first spring training game of the year, a little tilt with those...  [Posted on February 18, 2013 7:57 AM]


Confidence Or Arrogance?

The End Of An Era

When word of a press conference came out yesterday morning, there was a lot of general speculation.  Had the club bought out David Freese's arbitration years?  Was John Mozeliak a stealthy ninja, settling the Adam Wainwright situation while we weren't...  [Posted on February 6, 2013 6:59 AM]

The Year At CATB: 2012 In Review

It's the last day of the calendar year.  While I'm sure there are still discussions going on between GMs and players, for the most part it's extremely quiet and nowhere more so than in St. Louis.  So, to kill a...  [Posted on December 31, 2012 11:05 AM]


UCB December Project: Top 5 Stories

It's telling about this offseason that I can not write for over a week and still not necessarily have a backlog of things to talk about.  Sure, Ty Wigginton got signed and that's pretty inexplicable, but others have covered that...  [Posted on December 28, 2012 4:50 PM]


UCB Roundtable: Social Media Director For A Day

Don't Bunt, Matheny

One of the great things about the United Cardinal Bloggers is how well we work together.  That could mean collaborating on a roundtable.  It could also mean building up an inside joke.  This is the story of the latter.A few...  [Posted on November 15, 2012 1:15 PM]


Exit Interviews: The Synopsis

Exit Interview: Mike Matheny

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]

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]
