Got a chance to talk to VEB founder lboros before the WC play-in game. Good conversation and some talk about the history of VEB sprinkled in there.

Fourth Annual Cardinal Approval Ratings

For the fourth straight year, I'm doing the Cardinal Approval Ratings, getting a gauge on how people feel about the players, management, and other people related to the Cards. It's a quick form asking for a rating between 0 and 100. Check it out today, then come back to C70 At The Bat during spring training to see the results!

The United Cardinal Bloggers are proud to announce that their second season review publication in as many years is now available for download. Happy Flight: The Story of the 2011 Cardinals details the incredible season that the St. Louis squad had last year. Highlighted by photography from Erika Lynn and laid out in beautiful full color by Jon Doble, Happy Flight brings you the highs and lows of the '11 season, recaps the amazing postseason run, and includes features on Tony La Russa and Lance Berkman, among others. Inside the pages you will find the writing of 15 different Cardinal bloggers, from sites such as I70 Baseball, Pitchers Hit Eighth, Aaron Miles' Fastball and Future Redbirds. Happy Flight clocks in at 93 pages, chock full of Redbird goodness that you'll enjoy reading time and again. Founded in the fall of 2007, the United Cardinal Bloggers are the only known formalized team-centered blogging community in Major League Baseball. Members participate in various projects throughout the year as well as being a resource for other members. You can find out more about the UCB at their official site, www.unitedcardinalbloggers.com.

Third Annual Cardinal Approval Ratings

4

For the third straight year, I'm asking Cardinal fans their opinions on certain people related to the organization, whether players, management or media types. I had 68 responses last year, so I hope to push toward 100 this year. Voting will stay open until 3/4 or 3/5 unless demand warrants an extension. Head over and let your voice be heard!
