Baseball Thoughts

Posted: June 3, 2010 at 7:45 am   /   Local, St. Louis Cardinals

There are two major issues I want to address, neither of them relating to the Cardinals.  I am, however, a man of the people, so I will address the nice little series win the Cardinals wrapped up last night. Chris Carpenter once again pitched a terrific game, going eight strong innings and giving up just […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Role Reversal – St. Louis Cardinals Baseball

Posted: May 24, 2010 at 9:21 am   /   Local, St. Louis Cardinals

Well, after the Cardinals hit the first official rough patch of the season, they managed to rebound nicely and go 5-2 this last week, taking both games from the Nationals, splitting with the Marlins, and ganking two out of three with the Angels. Hopefully you especially enjoyed the series against the Angels, as they’re often […]

The Four Hole and Other Cardinals Thoughts

Posted: May 21, 2010 at 10:19 am   /   Local, St. Louis Cardinals

So far, the Cardinals are 3-1 in games in which Matt Holliday’s batted third and Albert Pujols fourth. While it’s good that they’ve gotten the  wins, I still question whether it’s the right move. I get paid a ridiculous amount of money to write this column, so I’ll put in my two cents. The general […]

Seein’ Red – St. Louis Cardinals Baseball

Posted: May 18, 2010 at 9:30 am   /   Local, St. Louis Cardinals

Well for the first time since last July, the Cardinals are no longer in first place. Granted, they are just a half-game back. But for the first time all season, the Cardinals’ struggles offensively has been matched with a bit of a lull from the starting rotation. The Cardinals’ pitching staff still ranks fourth 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 […]

St. Louis Cardinals Thoughts, Broom Edition

The first month of the regular season wraps up tonight with the Cardinals taking on the Cincinnati Communists at Busch. St. Louis wraps up April with no fewer than 15 wins, currently four games ahead of its nearest competitor. Although the outcome isn’t entirely unexpected, the manner in which it was reached has been. When […]

St. Louis Cardinals – A Weekend’s Reflection

Posted: April 12, 2010 at 9:02 am   /   Local, St. Louis Cardinals

Happy Opening Day! If you’re like me, you’re an overweight Asian man who sits alone most nights. Wait, that wasn’t my point. If you’re like me, you’re quite excited for today. The Red Sea is due to invade Busch this afternoon for the first game of the season at 3. One week into the regular […]
