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]

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]

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]


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]

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]

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]

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]

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]

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]

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: Shane Robinson

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 Mike...  [Posted on November 7, 2012 12:15 PM]

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]

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]

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]

Could Have Been Better, Could Have Been Worse

The Cardinals played their closest wild card rivals this weekend and were so very close to at least a series win, if not a series sweep.  Bullpen issues kept them from putting their stamp on the wild card, but...  [Posted on September 17, 2012 6:36 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]

Four Out Of Five Ain't Good Enough

Apologies for the long gap.  Between work and birthday happenings, I wasn't able to get to writing.  If the Cards lose tonight, I might have to swear it off for a while again because they've played some excellent ball...  [Posted on August 5, 2012 4:34 PM]

Fire 'Em Up

Before we get started on the second half of the season, a couple of thoughts about this year's All-Star Game:It was extremely good to see Tony La Russa and Dave Duncan again.  I'm not saying that I'd want them...  [Posted on July 13, 2012 10:41 AM]

Salvaging the Weekend

Two games against the Pirates and, well, at least they snapped the losing streak.  To recap:Saturday (7-3 loss)Hero: Matt Holliday.  The only Cardinal with more than one hit, Holliday also drew a walk and drove in a run.Goat: Lance...  [Posted on July 2, 2012 6:43 AM]

The Beat Reporter's Nightmare

By their own admission, beat writers aren't necessarily fans of the team.  There has to be some emotional distance between them and the ones that they cover.  So while the pure fan can fully enjoy games like last night's...  [Posted on June 26, 2012 6:51 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]

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]

June Has To Be Better, Right?

The way the month of May has gone for the Cardinals, it'd have seemed almost wrong for them to finish the month on a high note.  No worries there, unfortunately.Where exactly do you lay the most blame for last...  [Posted on May 31, 2012 8:00 AM]

Ups And Downs

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend while pausing to reflect on just why we have such a holiday.  If you missed it, yesterday I posted the schedule of bloggers that are going to fill in starting next Thursday....  [Posted on May 29, 2012 7:47 AM]

A Pair Of Wins

Every team goes through some sort of bump in the road.  The key is to see how they react to it, if they are able to minimize the losing.  So far, that's a test the Cardinals are passing.  Two...  [Posted on May 17, 2012 7:14 AM]

Being Run Over

Did anyone get the license plate of that truck?After finishing up their first sweep of 2012, the Cardinals then faced Atlanta and wound up being swept for the first time this season as well.  Save for Friday night's game,...  [Posted on May 14, 2012 6:54 AM]

Put A Lid On It

The Diamondbacks closed the roof Wednesday night.  That kept the balls in the yard, but it didn't change the outcome and, for once, the Cards were able to complete the sweep.  Nice to see that the brooms can work...  [Posted on May 10, 2012 7:03 AM]

No Puns, Just Runs

There was no post yesterday because I had to travel out of town to do some work at a client's office.  Said client also reads this blog from time to time and gently teased about the title of the...  [Posted on May 9, 2012 6:50 AM]

Belt(ran)ing Out The Hits

A week ago, the Cardinals loaded the bases against A.J. Burnett in the first inning but were unable to score.  Burnett wiggled free and proceeded to cruise to a victory.  Last night, we got to see the alternate universe,...  [Posted on May 3, 2012 6:45 AM]

Live By The Legs, Die By The Legs

Glad to be back with you.  Friday was an exhausting day and it took me most of the weekend to recover and get back into a computer mindset.  Thankfully on the whole the baseball weekend with the series against...  [Posted on April 30, 2012 6:46 AM]

No Sweep Yet Again, Thankfully

The Cards are having a good start to the season, I don't think anyone would deny that.  However, the fastest way to start thinking real negative thoughts about this team would be if they were swept by the Chicago...  [Posted on April 26, 2012 6:58 AM]

Bound To Happen

Eventually, a night like last night was going to happen.  Closers aren't perfect, not even the best of them.  The way last night was going, I'm not sure anyone was terribly surprised at the final outcome.Even though it was old...  [Posted on April 24, 2012 6:48 AM]

An Old Broom Leaves A Little Bit

For the second time this year, the Cards were unable to pull off the sweep of Cincinnati.  Again, winning series is the important thing and if the Cards continue to play over .600 ball, they are going to win...  [Posted on April 20, 2012 7:19 AM]

The Grind Begins

They've done all the openers.  They've gotten their rings.  All the starters have gone twice.  The stopping and starting with off days will slack off.  Save for seeing the teams that they've not seen, there's not anything left to be...  [Posted on April 17, 2012 7:15 AM]

A Successful Cardinal Weekend

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend.  I had a very nice holiday and, for the most part, the Cardinals did as well.  Quick recap, then we'll get into a few things from the Milwaukee series.Friday (11-5 win)Hero: David...  [Posted on April 9, 2012 6:44 AM]

A Step Back

While the Cardinals did win yesterday, 9-5 in comeback fashion over the Tigers, it was mainly a day of not-great news, starting with the health of Allen Craig.Instead of getting into a spring training game or two and being...  [Posted on March 29, 2012 7:06 AM]

The Late Game Magic Still Lingers

Of course, coming from behind in a spring training game doesn't have the magical allure that similar rallies last September and October had.  There's a strong chance that nothing in our lifetimes will be as magical as that, though,...  [Posted on March 16, 2012 7:38 AM]

That's Our First Winner!

I don't think there were any champagne celebrations or any Gatorade showers, but Mike Matheny is now the proud owner of a "1" in the win column on his managerial record.  Well, any managerial record that shows spring results,...  [Posted on March 9, 2012 6:58 AM]

Just When You Thought It Was Safe

Of course, the day when I make sure to mention how well the bullpen is doing, they decide to remember how things were at the beginning of the year.There's an argument to be made that Tony La Russa didn't...  [Posted on September 13, 2011 6:46 AM]
