2010 Cardinals Baseball Preview – Starting Pitching

Posted: March 30, 2010 at 9:50 am   /   Local, St. Louis Cardinals

If I’m Cardinals manager Tony LaRussa, I know the first three men I’d trust to hand my balls to. The first is the equipment manager who rubs them in mud and ensures a good grip on the balls is attainable. The second and third would be two gentlemen named Chris Carpenter and Adam Wainwright. The […]

2010 Cardinals Baseball Preview – Outfield

Posted: March 29, 2010 at 12:20 pm   /   Local, St. Louis Cardinals

Before I bust into the outfield preview, a thought on the NFL draft. Today’s the pro day at Oklahoma, where Sam Bradford is expected to throw 50-60 balls.

2010 Cardinals Baseball Preview – Third Base

Posted: March 26, 2010 at 12:30 pm   /   Local, St. Louis Cardinals

Continuing around the horn in the preview of the 2010 St. Louis Cardinals, we arrive to the one glaring weakness the 2009 Cardinals had: third base. After Troy Glaus arrived in 2008, he was expected to man his sack [Editor: umm, what?] through 2009. The swap for Scott Rolen worked out very well for the […]

The third entry in the 2010 preview of the Cardinals focuses on second base. Although there are likely three or four position players who could play […]

2010 Cardinals Baseball Preview – First Base, Rams Draft Thoughts

Posted: March 24, 2010 at 10:29 am   /   Local, St. Louis Cardinals

Moving on in the preview of the 2010 St. Louis Cardinals, we get to first base. Apparently we have a pretty good first baseman whose sole diet just might consist of the crushed career of Brad Lidge. Albert Pujols, 5 2009 Stats (from baseballreference.com): .327 BA, 47 HR, 135 RBI, 16 SB, .443 OBP, .658 […]

St. Louis Cardinals Spring Training 2010 Thoughts

Posted: March 22, 2010 at 12:17 pm   /   Local, St. Louis Cardinals

Spring training greetings from…well, St. Louis. Sorry, my travel budget for this job is pretty much restricted to gas money to go to the local bar. As the weather warms up (and, in St. Louis, fluctuates constantly), opening day looms ever nearer. If you’re like me, you’ll be playing hooky and watching the game. Unless […]
