Nothing like a weather delay to re-introduce myself to the good people following the Conclave! It has been entirely too long but good news is my favorite time of the year happens to be right around the corner. Not only will the short season clubs have a ton of talent to talk about, but this [...]
Drafted for a second time by the Cardinals, Parker Kelly already knows plenty about the organization. All he has to do is ask his brother Carson. Day three of the MLB Draft just hit Round 20, and St. Louis has mainly focused on pitchers such as Kelly.
Last night was a huge first step in setting the stage for the summer season. Three teams begin play later this month with most of the pieces directly coming from activities of the next two days. At this point the baseline has been established with how the 2018 Draft will play out. The Cardinals went [...]
Luken Baker will not be confused with any other draft pick the Cardinals make the next two days. And with the third selection on Day 1, St. Louis has improved another area sorely lacking throughout the Minors. The burly 1B from TCU has dealt with his fair share of injuries but has very few contemporaries [...]
After adding a potential number one type of prospect to the organization at #19, the Cardinals opted for a much different type of player with #43. Griffin Roberts won’t get the publicity of many other college hurlers drafted before him, but that doesn’t mean they will see the majors first. Roberts is a former closer [...]
Gotta admit as the time for the Cardinals to pick got closer, it was crazy to see two names still on the board. The Royals took all the drama out of the equation, however, and St. Louis scored the steal of the night. Kansas City snagged Brady Singer who somehow fell to 18th, and that [...]
Various reports have confirmed St. Louis finally landed the weapon it needed. Marcell Ozuna will be wearing the Birds on the Bat but appears multiple pieces going back to the Marlins in the move.
As the clock gets closer to welcoming Wednesday on the East Coast, very little movement surrounding St. Louis can lead to only two conclusions at the Winter Meetings. It would be unwise to count out the top brass for the Cardinals but at the same time, the trade market can be unforgiving once the dust [...]
Woke up from my writing hibernation to see well…not much has changed for the Birds on the Bat. It is early, however, so the time for panic can’t even be discussed until all the pieces are off the board. The Cardinals have sent the big guns down to Orlando in what quite possibly could be [...]
For a few weeks now, the goal has been trying to decide when to start the postseason previews for Memphis, Springfield, and the rest of the squads gearing up for September. At the same time, however, the Cardinals have been doing their best to keep the drama and suspense alive and well just about every [...]
Today’s offering has been percolating for quite awhile now, as it is time to come clean on a few matters. The lack of moves at the trade deadline caused things to take a sinister tone via social media. It was time to unplug from Twitter as well as breaking my sleep schedule in hopes of [...]
So this is going to be a great baseball day, right? The Cardinals can’t win or lose on the field, but 24 hours from now what makes the headlines in St. Louis? A better question may just end up being was it enough depending on how you look at the National League this silly summer. [...]
