Previewing the 2012 St. Louis Cardinals – Center Field

Posted: February 15, 2012 at 11:41 pm   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

Well, at the outset of the 2011 season, this position seemed like it’d be locked up by Colby Rasmus for the next decade. Rasmus was just coming off an underrated 2010 campaign (.276/.361/.498 with 23 HR and 66 RBI, his .859 OPS was tops among major league centerfielders who qualified for the batting title), and […]

Well, what a busy weekend. We’ll start with the Cardinals’ fight for first place with Pittsburgh (when’s the last time anyone could write THAT?), and go through some of the trade rumors, and discuss baseball’s Hall of Fame, which inducted three new members over the weekend. * note* I was going to do a football […]

You Can’t Spell Ryan Franklin Without “Fail”

Posted: April 17, 2011 at 10:04 pm   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

I think Tony La Russa and Ryan Franklin have a contract with electronics superstores. Seems like every time Tony puts him in to pitch, an inordinate amount of televisions end up with remotes getting thrown through them. First, though…what a difference a week makes. After last Saturday, the Cardinals were in desolate shape, dropping to […]

Week 1 And Other Thoughts

Posted: April 9, 2011 at 5:36 pm   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Blues, St. Louis Cardinals

Hey all, sorry I never got around to finishing my 2011 preview. This spring, I took the job of head coach for an Atom 2 (9 and under) baseball team, so it’s been a bit of a second job working with them. I’ll try to post as often as I can, but until the end […]

Halfway Home: The St. Louis Cardinals at the All-Star Break

Posted: July 13, 2010 at 11:15 am   /   Local, St. Louis Cardinals

With the All-Star game tonight marking the slightly-over-halfway point of the season, it’s a good time to look over how the Cardinals have done thus far. At 47-41, it’s safe to say thus far the results have been a little underwhelming. Like me with my women, the Cardinals started off strong before they faltered and […]

Halcyon Days

Posted: June 1, 2010 at 8:33 am   /   Local, St. Louis Cardinals

I hope you folks are enjoying this stretch of Cardinals baseball. For the first two months of the season, the pitching carried the team while the defense and offense sorta straggled along. I said at the beginning of the season, if we can get the lineup going, we’ll have one of the best in baseball. […]

Firing Blanks – St. Lous Cardinals Baseball

Posted: May 27, 2010 at 7:28 am   /   Local, St. Louis Cardinals

I guess I spoke too soon about the Cardinals offense being revived. Fresh off a series that saw the Cardinals score 22 runs against one of the better teams in the American League, the Cardinals have managed a total of one run in two games against San Diego, one of the best pitching teams in […]

A Bad Luck Charm?

Posted: May 13, 2010 at 10:38 am   /   Local, St. Louis Cardinals

So far, the Cardinals have lost five home games. So far, I’ve been at four of them. Perhaps the Cardinals should pay me to stay away at this point. Went to the game Tuesday night with my ever-lovely friend Liz, but we had to leave after seven because I had to bartend. We managed to […]
