Note: I’ve not had the kind of time I’d like to spend writing about the Cardinals on a consistent basis. However, with the time that I do have, I’ve transitioned most of my Cardinals commentary into a video blog style “YouTube show.” I figured I’d continue to share them here, as well as via Twitter, etc. [...]

Bird Seeds: Episode 10


Bird Seeds, Episode 7


Where it stops, nobody knows. I’m not typically one to harp on lineup construction. An individual complaint here or there, sure. Twitter tends to take care of the rest, anyway.

It haunted me then, and continues to haunt me now. Staff ace? Gone for the year. Recently acquired setup man? Out with an unpredictable arm injury. Both the 3 and 4 [...]

What a week, huh? If I don’t write about it, I can pretend it’s not happening … right? A girl can dream. This week, though, has been more like a nightmare for the St. Louis Cardinals and their oft-mocked fan base. Only this time, the jabs are warranted. Maybe. But, then again, maybe not so [...]

As the annual UCB Progressive Game Blog continues, we try to move on from the train wreck of a 6th inning to the all-important “inning after.” You know, the inning after the lead is yanked away, and you try to get those runs back? Yeah. That inning. At this point, I was irritated enough by [...]
