on the fence

There are plenty of things I'm on the fence about after the magnificent ending to the 2011 season. World Series champs again, and it feels sooooo much better than it did in 2006 (in my opinion...


A Look Back at the 2011 Season

2011... the 130th season for the franchise, and the 120th in the National League. The 11th world championship team. Sixth season at Busch III, 2nd world championship already for the young venue....


Cardinals vs Brewers quick fact sheet

well well well. I must admit after the last series vs the Brewers the rivalry matchup didn't seem to be over. For a year or so, the Reds wrestled the mantle away from the Brewers (who have...

this implies that Boggs may not be back next season


would they trade him away, or what? or is the writer reading too much into the "Larussa/Boggs disconnect"? I will be very pissed off if he doesn't return, since he is one of the better relievers and still may have even more upside. TLR is dumb.


Picks for Cy Young and MVP

So just wanted to start a quick chat on everyone's pick for Cy Young and MVP this year. I'm going with some pretty obvious choices: Roy Halladay for NL Cy Young and CC Sabathia for AL. Not as easy...

fantasy football league needs teams

Stat Check as of 8/13

The Cardinals have the #1 offense in the NL. So their goal of improving the offense has been pretty successful. This is of course due in large part to signing Lance Berkman (not Ryan Theriot)....


Cardinals leaders on offense

Leaders on offense for the team so far


Will the Cardinals have a regular closer by end of season?

Watching the bullpen tonight with Boggs and Motte throwing, makes one think of possible closers for the team. But it also brings thoughts of if there should be a certain person pitching in a...


The Season is Shaping Up: Who Is Winning, Who May Not Be

The Phillies are the best team in baseball right now, just ahead of the Red Sox and Cardinals. Last time I wrote a fanpost, Boston were not a factor. Now, they are ahead of the Yankees, who were...


Game 62 gamethread

have at it

Allen Craig, second baseman of the future?


this would be a great move, I think they should commit to it as they did the Schumaker experiment. he can't possibly be much worse at defense than Skip, who has got most of the playing time there. and we all know he will hit better than Schu. kudos, Cardinals org!


An early look at the divisions

So far, sabermetrically speaking, the Cardinals are the best team in baseball. Their offensive wins above replacement level far outpaces even the Yankees, 11.3 to 8.5. Although both teams are in...


Game 4 Open Gamethread: Cardinals Vs Pirates... sink the Jolly Roger

Lohse's first start, could be a trendsetter on a European motorbike


The NL Central Statistical Projection Extravaganza!

Well, I feel fairly confident in who is going to be the (near) every day starters for the top 3 teams in the NL Central. I grew impatient with, waiting for them to post the zips...


Viva El League planning meeting 2: the final chapter

the league needs one more team for the Man Stew (West) division. all other spots are full. also, am contemplating going with head to head points instead of head to head wins. let me know what you...


Viva El League: who is returning?

a few quick questions... I've tweaked a couple of the settings, but am open to a consensus on the league settings. I'm thinking on going up to 20 teams if everyone's ok with that, and if we have...

Musial to get Presidential Medal of Freedom


Stan "The Man" Musial will be granted one of the great honors of his long and distinguished life on Tuesday, when President Barack Obama presents the living legend with the Presidential Medal of Freedom. That ceremony is expected to take place Tuesday, at approximately 1:30 p.m. ET at the White House, and fans will be able to bear witness on

A Must See: Brian Wilson finally goes off the wall bonkers


perhaps the most entertaining guest on a talk show I've seen in quite some time


The Hot Corner - Player Profiles: Allen Craig

Allen Craig was one of the Cardinals' most exciting prospects before being called up to St. Louis in 2010. Allen was born in 1984 in Mission Viejo, California. He attended high school in Cali and...


The Hot Corner - 2011 Player Profiles: David Freese

Third base remains an uncertainty for the Cardinals going into 2011, along with the rest of the infield (even Albert has the contract thing going on). Since the post-Rolen era began, third base has...


Why Brendan Ryan should start at shortstop for the Cardinals

Brendan "Boog" Ryan was the best defensive shortstop in the majors last season. The best. has him ahead of Nick Punto in Fielding in 2010. While his batting was below major league...


Thanksgiving Randomness

looking forward to Thanksgiving (or basically, feasting instead of working). I compiled some easy side dish preparations, not sure what I'm going to make yet: Maple Butternut Squash Casserole ...

Brendan Ryan's baseball reference page


Unfortunately, it is already sponsored by The Cardinal Nation Blog. some noteworthy items from Boog's BR page: - Boog is 7th among active shortstops by Total Zone Runs in just 312 games (Omar Vizquel, Jack Wilson, Adam Everett, Rollins, Tulo, and Iztoo are all ahead of Boog) - Boog is 41st all time in TZR. in basically two full seasons worth of play - He had the most Assists in 2010, and he was 1st in Range Factor/Game and Total Zone Runs in 2009


The Best Hitters in the "Year of the Pitcher"

OK, so by now I think it has settled in with everyone just how weird a season 2010 was for major league baseball. We are about to start a world series between the Rangers and the Giants, first of...
