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 […]

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.

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

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 […]

2010 Cardinals Baseball Preview – Second Base

Posted: March 25, 2010 at 10:35 am   /   Local, St. Louis Cardinals

Opening Day countdown = 11 days. Home Opener countdown = 18 days. Finally, a crappy day of weather in St. Louis so you all may suffer inside like me. 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 […]

Mark McGwire Admits To Steroid Use

Posted: January 11, 2010 at 3:23 pm   /   Local, Sports

It is a sad day for MLB and Cardinals fans. In the late 1990s the eyes of the country were focused on the Home Run race between Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa, both on their way to beat Roger Maris’ record of 61 homers in a single season in 1961. That record held up til […]
