Wednesday, November 27: It's getting Steamy

VEBers, I was bored. So I made a fanpost. Those old front page posts were getting a little crowded, and we wouldn't want to clog up the comment strings. Also, it's a Wednesday and as Baron tends...


Wednesday August 28 2013 -- The Morning Thread To End All Morning Threads (Or Maybe Not!)

There's an interesting piece on Fangraphs about our favorite Allen Craig. The gist of it: Craig's RISP splits so far in his carreer are pretty crazy, but it's hard to prove anything about them. But...


Friday June 14 Temporary Discussion Thread

The Cards are now at 43-23, the best record in the majors, and a .652 winning percentage (or ratio if you want to be that way). Their Pythag record, via mlb.com, is at 44-22, because we've just...

Fangraphs Q&A with Brendan Ryan, by David Laurilia


DL: What was it like to play in St. Louis? BR: Traditional, I want to say. The park plays fair; it’s a good surface. Of course, I’m always wishing the fence is brought in a bit, because I’ve got that warning track power. But it was a wonderful place to play; it’s classic. The fans are there for baseball. They’re not there for the pool in right-center field, or some of the distractions you’ll find in other places. They’re there with scorebooks in hand and know what’s going on. When you move a guy over, they know you sacrificed yourself. They applaud a nice play.

A lazy Sunday thread.

Prospect of the Day: Maikel Cleto (Minor League Ball)


Cool little piece on MinorLeagueBall.com about Maikel Cleto by John Sickels. I had forgotten just how bad his numbers looked before we got him (which makes his performance in our system look like quite the improvement so far). Interesting to see that many still see him as a possible future starter.


Transcript of mattybobo's exclusive interview with Albert Pujols

 June 2, 2011 mattybobo: Well, I can't tell my guest and all the readers how excited I am to be sitting down face-to-face with the one and only Albert Pujols, first baseman for the St. Louis...


Freese/Miles/Astros Hangover discussion

I'm guessing this is a better alternative to using last night's gamethread.

It's like there's a party in my mouth, and the Internet's invited!


I hope you all haven't already seen this by now. It's a breakdown, using Sean Smith's WAR database, of the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant softball team. Since so many of those players were old, ineffective, or just overrated at that time, the author picks his own super-team from 1992. Fun stuff.

The Obscure St. Louis Cardinals


A Daily Mail article about fake Twitter accounts provides a gem about Tony La Russa a few paragraphs in: "Twitter has decided to act after Tony La Russa, the coach of an obscure American baseball team, launched a legal action over a fake account." "Obscure"??? Seriously? The second most WS title of all time? The team that employs Albert Pujols, nigh-universally acknowledged as the sport's best player? Is Chelsea obscure because they're not Manchester? Is Italy an obscure national team because they've won fewer World Cups than Brazil? So much for the "special relationship" between our countries. I hold Felonius Monk personally responsible for this outrage.


Dr. Strangebird (or, How I learned to stop worrying and goof around)

Well my fellow Vivi Birders, it's early February. Baseball news regarding our Cardinals has slowed to less than a trickle. Surely Ben Sheets and Manny Ramirez wait by their phones, frustrated that...
