    Midseason Reviews for Preseason Predictions -- Individual Awards Edition

    You know, the All-Star break has come and gone. The second half (I should really put that in quotation marks, but screw it), of the baseball season is well and truly underway. I had a dozen different things I was planning on writing while the break was going on, all kinds of progress reports an ...

    Walt Jocketty's Two Worst Trades, And Why Cardinals Fans Should Still Feel Worse

    You may or may not have heard yet, but Josh Hamilton had himself quite a game last night. The Texas Rangers outfielder became just the 16th player in major league history to hit four home runs in a single game as part of a 5-for-5 night that saw him collect 8 RBI and 18 total bases. Bizarrely e ... More >>

    Cy Young, MVP Predictions for 2012 MLB

    You know, as a semi-professional sportswriter there are a few things toward which I am genetically predisposed. (Why semi-professional? Because I do get paid, but my talent and behavior are both, well, somewhat short of what is usually termed professionalism.) I love to hear myself talk, for one thi ... More >>

    Should the Cardinals Be In On Ubaldo Jimenez?

    commons.wikimedia.org​The latest scuttlebutt all over the baseball trade landscape has Dan O'Dowd, manager of the Colorado Rockies, shopping his young ace Ubaldo Jimenez. Unsurprisingly, the Yankees have been mentioned prominently, along with pretty much every other big-time contending team with a ... More >>

    The Most Momentous Moments of the Aughts: The Cardinals

    So on this last day of the decade, I had myself a thought. "Aaron," I thought, "You should really try to do some sort of decade-long wrap for St. Louis sports." ​"You know what, Aaron? That's an excellent idea!" I paused for a moment, considering the notion further. "Now why didn't I think of ... More >>

    Game Notes: Cardinals 13, Redlegs 0, 1/10/09 -- Carpenter Does it Himself

    The Cardinals have had many, many great hitting pitchers in their long and illustrious history. Bob Gibson hit 24 home runs in his career and posted a .751 OPS in 1970. Mark Mulder was a designated hitter during his college career at Michigan State, as was Dan Haren at Pepperdine. Jason Marquis is a ... More >>

    Why Ichiro Suzuki is So Damned Awesome

    I have to say, Ichiro Suzuki may be my favorite non-Cardinal baseball player. There are plenty of others I love watching, mostly pitchers. Guys like Dan Haren (though that always makes me sad, too), Tim Lincecum, and Roy Halladay are all fantastic to watch; seeing players lie that ply their trade is ... More >>

    Rumored: La Russa to Leave After Season

    You know, most "news" items are barely news at all; you usually get something that's all promise and no real substance. Every once in a while, though, something really interesting streaks across the sky, and you just have to stop and pay attention. It may still turn out to be nothing, it may burn up ... More >>

    Tony La Russa Demands Trade for 2004 Cardinals

    During a closed-door meeting on Sunday evening, in which the Cardinals' failure to make a deal at the non-waiver trade deadline was discussed, Tony La Russa demanded that John Mozeliak make a trade for the 2004 Cardinals. The subject was first broached by the Cardinal manager a few weeks before, d ... More >>

    The Mark Mulder Pitching Obituary

    Well, it certainly did shoot the idea of a prediction contest all to hell and back, didn't it? Who had a third of an inning, with no runs? No one? Really? Didn't see that one coming? Seriously, though, that's obviously the sort of line that no one could have really predicted. However, I am a man ... More >>

    Welcome Back, Mark Mulder

    Welcome back, Mr. Mulder. It may have only been an inning. It may have come with a six-run lead. It may have only been a tease, yet another heartbreak just waiting to happen. Nonetheless, Mark Mulder took the mound on Monday night, and it was good.

    Cards Blog: Mozeliak vs. Mulder

    I was listening to Kevin Wheeler on KMOX last night on the drive home and caught his conversation with first-year Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak. After some chitchat about the team's early-season run of great play -- and great plays, like Pujols' Monday-night mad dash and Ankiel's phenomena ... More >>

    Cards Blog: Was Pineiro's Return a Rush Job?

    Joel Pineiro made his 2008 season debut on Sunday afternoon, and it did not go very well. He exited the game before the end of the fourth inning, having given up six earned runs (although three of those could have easily been unearned, as third baseman Rico Washington misplayed a line drive into a d ...
