Pujols Out 4-6 Weeks; Critics Claim He Was Already Out First 2 Months (Video)

Posted: June 22, 2011 at 5:30 am   /   Local, St. Louis Cardinals

The injury bug has claimed yet another victim on the Cardinals roster, as it was announced today that Albert Pujols would miss approximately 4-6 weeks with a nondisplaced fracture in his left wrist. His critics have downplayed the significance of this, claiming he didn’t show up for the first two months to begin with. Watch […]

My Apology to Lance Berkman

Posted: April 29, 2011 at 10:27 am   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

Dear Lance, I owe you an apology. When I first heard about your signing in the offseason, I was more than skeptical. I saw the mediocre season you’d had with Houston and New York last season, and upon hearing we signed you for $8 million, which is almost as much as I make in a […]

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 Year in Sports

Posted: December 28, 2010 at 9:20 am   /   Local, Sports

For most St. Louisans, 2010 wasn’t exactly a super memorable year in sports. None of the big teams won a championship, few players had standout years, and many of the teams in general were disappointing given pre-season expectations. Still, there were moments to remember. I’ll look back on the year in general for local sports […]

Brandon Phillips Wants to Play Cardinals With One Leg, Can’t Win With Two

Posted: August 11, 2010 at 1:37 pm   /   Film, Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

Well then. Pretty much every part of the Sea of Red here in St. Louis has heard about the inflammatory comments Brandon Phillips made regarding the Cardinals. If you didn’t read them, here they are, in all their inane glory: “I’d play against these guys on one leg. We have to beat these guys. All […]

Cardinals Recap/Trade Thoughts

Posted: August 2, 2010 at 12:12 pm   /   Film, Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

Finally, another sweet. Granted, this time it was against the Pittsburgh Pirates. But, any port in a storm. What went right this weekend for the Cardinals? Offense The offense finally got going this weekend, Friday night notwithstanding (although they did manage nine hits). Albert Pujols went 5 for 13 with two home runs and three […]

Dusting off the Brooms

Posted: July 19, 2010 at 12:07 pm   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

Finally! Much like a girl who teases and frustrates a man to the point of no return, the 2010 Cardinals have flirted with sweeps throughout the season, only to come up empty. Not this time, though. Playing the first series after the All-Star Break, the Cardinals finally managed a sweep, a four-game series, no less. […]

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 […]

Holliday? Holy…Cow.

Posted: June 21, 2010 at 11:49 am   /   Local, St. Louis Cardinals

Hello there, and a happy belated Father’s Day to all of you who are fathers. As for me, I don’t fit that category…as far as I know. /crossing fingers The Cardinals wrapped up a mostly successful week of interleague play taking four of six from Seattle and Oakland. Once again, starting pitching was a strong […]
