Remember that pose?Another series, another bad loss trying to go for a sweep. It would be funny if it weren't so frustrating. The deciding moment of the game yesterday was a telling one, a moment that for me summed up nearly everything that's been wrong with this season. It was the bottom of ... More >>
This Royal did NOT start against the Cardinals over the weekend; however, I'm convinced he could have thrown six shutout without much of a problem. So the 2010 edition of the I-70 series went about as poorly as one could possibly imagine. The Cardinals managed to lose two of three, Aaron Miles pl ... More >>

A couple of years ago, back when Charlie Haeger was floating around between Triple A and the majors with the White Sox, I was really hoping the Cardinals might check into acquiring him. At the time, it didn't look as if Chicago had a whole lot of use for him, and I thought he would make a great pick ... More >>
