The final entry in the full-season preview holds a special place for me on multiple fronts. Peoria was a natural fit for the Cardinals as far as logistics are concerned, but the Chiefs also offer a storied history as well. I grew up in the Quad-Cities and quickly fell in love with the Midwest League. [...]

It's one of the annual traditions here at C70 At The Bat, our trip around the majors in blog form.  Since 2009, I've been asking bloggers from other teams about what's going to happen with their squad in the coming season.  It's always fun to see what the opposition is thinking and how optimistic some [...]

NL West And NL East Preview

My predictions here will probably be pretty boring as they're porbably going with the consesus. I'm going to stick with just analyzing the teams I think will make the playoffs. NL West: Winner - Los Angeles Dodgers: I think the West is pretty much the Dodgers to lose. The have a solid offense led by [...]

Let's be honest: this is the main event this week.  The only reason we even concern ourselves with whatever the other divisions are doing is because the Cardinals might have to play them in October.  Otherwise, all our focus is on the National League Central, seeing whether the Redbirds can pull out another divisional title. [...]

AL Predictions

Sorry I'm a day late on this. I'll probably do a combo of two of the NL divisions(West and East)  tomorrow. American League West Division Champs: Seattle: I love Seattle's pitching, and they added another bat in Nelson Cruz. I doubt Cruz can repeat his performance last year, be'll still hit his share of home [...]

It's Day 2 of the predictions from the United Cardinal Bloggers and today we take a gander at the National League East.  It's a division that always gets attention, especially since one of the New York teams is in it.  How will it shake out, though?  Don't ask me, but that won't stop me from [...]

This winter, the St. Louis Cardinals made it clear that they expected Carlos Martinez to be the fifth starter in their rotation. Yesterday, the Cardinals named Martinez as that fifth starter. However, as you know, it's been anything but a straight path for the young righthander. We've talked about the fifth spot over and over [...]

Joe Schwarz of Viva El Birdos and I sat down Wednesday night and chatted a bit.  Of course, a lot of things have happened since then, but it's still a good listen!
