By signing with the Chicago Cubs, Jason Motte gets the best of both worlds. He gets to compete for a potential winning franchise and stay very close to his favorite city of St. Louis at the same time. Be happy for the guy. Upon hearing the news this afternoon, Cardinal fans were either hurt or [...]

You notice I didn’t say the NL Central, but the NL itself. The reason, while we do indeed have plenty of challenges in our division, it seems to me we have one clear threat if we want to represent our league in the World Series. And that’s *after* this team traded one of its sluggers [...]

After a quiet fall, the podcast fires back up as I chat with another member of The Conclave.  Doug and I have a nice back-and-forth plus, as a bonus, I talk Star Wars.  (I know, I know, but it's at the end so you can skip it.)

In the last prospect battle, I looked at two pitching prospects, Alex Reyes and Rob Kaminsky, who will both be top 5 prospects for the St. Louis Cardinals in 2015. For my latest battle, I went with outfielders who should also be top 5 prospects for 2015. Stephen Piscotty and Randal Grichuk have taken very [...]

If you listened around St. Louis this afternoon after the Cardinals signed veteran bat Mark Reynolds to a one year deal, there wasn't much optimism in the air. One would think the Cards just signed a guy to a long term deal and dumped a ton of money into him. Many are overthinking this smart [...]

Good Move Carlos…

One of the thing lost in the flurry of moves this week was a simple number switch. Carlos Martinez switched numbers, changing from number 44 to the number 18, formerly used by his good friend Oscar Taveras. I was already a fan of Carlos’ and was looking forward to his full conversion to starter this [...]

Greetings folks, While I have relocated to Little Rock, Arkansas, some things haven't changed. The trek towards getting my three year old son potty trained is still active and ongoing.
