So SBN wants to be Bleacher Report real bad. All righty, then. All my content posted on SBN will be gone by the end of this year. I'm not going to drive clicks on this site with my hard work.

Remember how I told you guys to get an option to save all the blog content with their comments? Oh, who's laughing now? Nobody.

We may have kicked up a lot of silt, but there were nuggets of baseball history there, and it's not like the Wayback Machine will save it all for your grandchildren.

Stan the Man for Pres. Medal of Freedom

"The St. Louis Cardinals invite you to join our campaign to convince President Barack Obama to award Stan Musial the Presidential Medal of Freedom, America's highest civilian honor, for his lifetime of achievement and service." Ways to participate in Stand for Stan (twitter hashtag), with bonus pictures of the Busch Stadium staff posing with Flat Stan-the-Man.

'Stache the Sequel: Coming Soon

The man thong didn't help. Losing the socks didn't help. Pulling them back out didn't help. Head shaving didn't help. And so Brendan Ryan has confirmed it's time to bring the 'stache back. It'll be a tandem; Joey will give him a headstart. Meanwhile we can rest easy that Joe Mather is on the team... to talk Boog off those ledges. Yikes.

The 36th of Albert Cheerful Overflow thread, or May 6th, 2010 Central Time. And a screenshot of the FSM Boog and Bombs Show's ringpop. Cheerfulness cannot be enforced, but there's DanUp's excellent one-act and the game thread for otherwise, and we cannot guarantee that depressing comments will not be greeted with cute animal gifs.

Audio of Losing Pitcher Joe Mather et al

The Globe-Democrat's game report includes audio from * Albert Pujols * Blake Hawksworth * Brendan Ryan * Jaime Garcia * Kyle Lohse * Losing pitcher Joe Mather * Tony La Russa Here's the Post-Dispatch (link will expire). Here's the Mothership. * Pre-game notes (see Lopez's quote) * Historical * Position players on the mound * Post-game Here's Fox with some quotes and color. Goold's scorecard book before the position players pitched. Leach's photo of the 19th inning crowd.

"If we go 25 innings today, I got the ball, I’m on the mound.’ And he said ‘OK’. We were five innings short. It was pretty much a verbal promise, but we just never got there."

Brendan Ryan asking La Russa if he can pitch ... before the start of the 20 inning game.

"It started long before all of us. It was a scratchy type of baseball that doesn't know how to say no. It's a team that doesn't beat itself. Today, you see a scrappy player like Brendan Ryan and you say, 'Oh, that's a throwback to the old Cardinals teams. That's a dirty uniform, that's the 'Cardinal Way.' "

Out of Lurking Thread 4/8/10

It's Thursday night, the Cardinals and probably Jaime Garcia's entire family are headed to Milwaukee, and we can't even watch what the Braves are going to do to Randy Wells. What up, VEB.

The Kobe and Albert and Co. ST summit

Clearinghouse of links regarding the Kobe and Albert summit when several Cardinals and their families watched the Lakers take on the Heat when the starters had a day off from Spring Training play. Posted because of inconsistencies in coverage. See tags for players. * Link above is from the Post-Dispatch. If you're reading this, it probably doesn't work anymore. * Albert gets chance to meet, discuss success with Kobe Bryant (Globe-Democrat) * daily notes with a preview from Brendan Ryan (FSM) * AP story of game "With the Lakers in town and a marquee matchup like Wade vs. Bryant, the seats were predictably filled by some star power, including Jason Taylor, Albert Pujols, Timbaland, Scottie Pippen, Bryant McKinnie and Will Allen." * Pujols, Kobe bond as MVPs, champs (MLB) * Cardinals' Albert Pujols sees his work ethic reflected in Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe Bryant (Palm Beach Post) * video part 1:: Albert and Kobe (and Joey Bombs) (FSM) * video part 2: Albert and Kobe with Boog and Bombs (FSM) * 1:54 pm - Boog yuks it up over Mather's ride (Strauss liveblog) * Brendan Ryan's Excellent Lakers Adventure (Goold's BirdLand, feat. Albert's imitation of Ryan plus photos) * picture of Albert (ESPN)

Jaime Garcia's Mental Game

Thanks a lot, edit button ... as seen on front page blog. Just sticking it into the tag. Best shape of his life! (Confession: I was capitalizing JAIME GARCIA for no reason. It turned out to be an excellent exclamation. Glad to see it's got a hold around here.)

"If I can cut this award into more than 40 pieces, I would do it in a heartbeat and share it with every teammate who helped me accomplish it. And if I could trade it for a championship ring, that would be even better. "I ask the media not to pick us to win the NL Central this year. We like to prove you guys are not perfect."

Albert Pujols, on winning his MVP The Maching shared Man of the Year honors with Whitey Herzog. (moar fanshots!!)

Schumaker earns 2009 DK Award

Plenty more awards that night, of course. The Astros also present this annual award. Another choice quote: "If I started to write a speech about Skip, I'd probably still be writing," Wainwright said. "Because the dude is first-rate." [P-D coverage] "The Darryl Kile Award is presented annually to the St. Louis Cardinals and Houston Astros player who best exemplifies Kile's traits of 'a good teammate, a great friend, a fine father and a humble man.'" 2002 - (none, in honor of Darryl Kile) 2003 - Mike Matheny 2004 - Woody Williams 2005 - Cal Eldred 2006 - Chris Carpenter 2007 - Russ Springer 2008 - Adam Wainwright 2009 - Skip Schumaker
