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 […]

The Cardinals had an off-day yesterday after getting broomed out of town by the Dodgers, giving them a little time to lick their wounds before heading to Arizona. There were a few St. Louis-related sports bits, however. – It’s being reported that Jeff Suppan, released last week by the Milwaukee Brewers, is very close to […]

Beyond His Years – P.J. Walters and STL Cardinals

Posted: May 28, 2010 at 9:55 am   /   Local, St. Louis Cardinals

Few men have to go through what P.J. Walters has gone through the last five months. Even fewer have had to do it at the age of 25. This past winter, P.J. and his wife had their first child, Annabelle, born approximately 14 weeks prematurely. As expected, she faced several health problems from the outset […]

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 […]

St. Louis Cardinals News – Penny for your Thoughts

Posted: April 15, 2010 at 8:00 am   /   Local, St. Louis Cardinals

Har har. I’m such a jokester with the title. Some Cardinals odds and ends from the last few days. Brad Penny looks good This signing was almost an afterthought in the offseason, due to the pressing demand to sign Holliday. But when the Cardinals picked up Penny early in the Hot Stove League, I thought […]

2010 Cardinals Baseball Preview – Starting Pitching, Part Deux

Posted: March 31, 2010 at 8:44 am   /   Local, St. Louis Cardinals

Bear with me, it’s almost over. ^ Words that have haunted me all my life. Spring training is winding down, and as the Cardinals begin their preparations to move back north, it would appear that most of the roster decisions have been made. This includes the starting rotation, which had only one real choice to […]
