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]


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]


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]


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]


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]


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]


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]


The Ride Starts Early

Last year, the Cardinals were a feast or famine team at times.  Score big or score none.  You weren't always sure what team was going to show up.  While the traditional spring caveats (it's early, it's spring, not the makeup...  [Posted on March 5, 2013 11:15 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]


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]


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

If you haven't already, you must read the outstanding piece by Jenifer Langosch over at the official site, detailing the mentor/mentee (is that a word) relationship between some of the veterans and some of the youngsters coming up.  It's a...  [Posted on February 19, 2013 7:06 AM]


The Business of Baseball

Seriously, I'm not a jinx.  I've made bad predictions, had things blow up in my face, but I don't think I'm a jinx.  Barret Browning might disagree with me, however.Less than 24 hours after my interview with him hit the...  [Posted on January 29, 2013 7:05 AM]


Gotta Write Something

This is really getting ridiculous.Here we are halfway through the first month of 2013 and I have yet to write an original post this new year.  (I'm talking non-press release post, not any general aspersions on my writing, which is...  [Posted on January 15, 2013 7:08 AM]


Winter Meetings In Spring Temperatures

The general manager meetings start in Nashville today.  If the climate in Nashville is similar to what it is here--and it should be--it might be less meetings and more pickup softball games.  I know that we don't often have white...  [Posted on December 3, 2012 7:00 AM]

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]

Laboring For A Win

After the last week, a win is a win is a win and you can't complain too much about it, but yesterday's victory against the Mets was a little more nerve-wracking than you'd care for when you are drawing...  [Posted on September 4, 2012 6:47 AM]


Still Fighting

You know, if you looked at just the last two games by themselves, with no context, I think Cardinal fans would be fairly pleased with what they saw.  The Cards lost a game started by Stephen Strasburg, but they...  [Posted on September 3, 2012 9:10 AM]


Recipe For Success

SHUTOUT (Satisfies a Nation)Take one top-line pitcher, preferably pitching like a Cy Young candidate.  Add in an opposing offense that could be confused with a Triple-A squad.  Mix in run support, adding some runs early and the rest scattered...  [Posted on August 22, 2012 6:49 AM]


Running Out Of Time

The Cardinals had a prime opportunity this weekend, hosting the team ahead of them for the last wild card slot.  A series sweep would have been outstanding, but two out of three would have at least had them tied...  [Posted on August 20, 2012 9:23 AM]


Cardinals Win, Cardinals Lose

You know, when you drop into the middle of one of these games on the radio, it's a bit confusing to figure out who is winning and, honestly, who is playing on what side.  That doesn't mean that it...  [Posted on April 3, 2012 8:00 AM]


Making Progress Toward A Win

Well, it wasn't a loss.I don't want to say it's troubling to see two games in a row given up by the bullpen, because it really isn't.  It's spring and when the results don't matter, you are going to...  [Posted on March 8, 2012 7:02 AM]


The State of Cardinal Nation, 2012

Ladies, gentlemen, fellow Redbird fanatics:Last night was the annual State of the Union address, given from the White House in Washington.  It was an (inspiring/depressing) speech, full of (uplifting messages/political malarkey) but it didn't address a major point of life in...  [Posted on January 25, 2012 6:51 AM]
