The Right Thing is Seldom the Easy Thing


Yeah, it’s been a long time since I have written a blog. You may be wondering why I choose today to start back into it. Well I blame someone my wife knows somewhat well and I probably only have shaken his hand. His name is Derek Glanvill. I have been slowly reading Mike Matheny’s book […]

2015 St. Louis Cardinals Preview


Yeah I know there has been one game played in this season already. I felt I still have time to write my Cardinals individual preview for the year. The 2015 Cardinals bring with them an energy, a mission. Many of them were not happy with the way the team was defeated in the 2014 National […]

Let Them Play – The 2014 Cardinals Playoff Push Is On!


Once again it’s late September. The weather in St. Louis has started to cool down. Some of those around town are asking when the Rams will be moving to Los Angeles. Others are counting down the three weeks until the St. Louis Blues take the ice. I wonder all of these things but my mind […]

St. Louis Cardinals 2014, So Far


The St. Louis Cardinals are 30-29 and over one third of the way thru a long MLB season. The majority of their early games have been on the road. Finally they came home more during May and many thought that would help them. Well it has, a little (thinking optimistically). Tinkering with the lineup has […]

My Take On #cardsplaneproblems


Giving credit where credit is due, United Cardinal Bloggers founder and head honcho Daniel Shoptaw Cardinal70 ‏@C70 game up with the Twitter hashtag #cardsplaneproblems. From there it blew up. You all knew Middlebrooksing would get involved (see picture credit Joe Sports Fan). Cardinals players are playing along with Jon Axford posting pictures, David Freese joking […]

It’s World Series Time!


Yes the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Los Angeles Dodgers like I predicted as did the Boston Red Sox by beating the Detroit Tigers. Got both of those right. Sorry to all my Tigers fan friends. I wish Jim Leyland the best in his retirement. Remember he was a Cardinals scout before he took your […]

2013 Cardinals in Spring Training


Yeah I know, haven’t written a blog in a while.  Haven’t heard anybody complaining or telling me that it has been missed.  Things that make you go hmmmm. Let’s see what has happened with our beloved St. Louis Cardinals this spring.  They got great new batting practice hats; they are going to wear red hats […]

Season’s Reflections and Post Season Preview


Well 162 games are down the drain and Major League Baseball is down to 10 teams in the playoffs.  This season had a different feel for me with my beloved St. Louis Cardinals.  There was some interesting high expectation and I think the Cardinals finished about where I thought they would by making it into […]

My Royals and Marlins Thoughts


I was lucky enough to go to the Friday and Saturday games of the St. Louis Cardinals sweep of the Kansas City Royals in Kansas City at Kaufmann Stadium.  It is a nice park.  Not sure if it’s nice enough to host an All-Star game, but they didn’t ask my opinion. On Friday night, my […]

What Jack and Darryl Did For Cardinals Nation and America


Next week will be the 10 year anniversaries of the deaths of Jack Buck and Darryl Kile. 10 years.  Wow.  I remember these events better than some things I did last week.  It took the Angels coming to town for the first time in their history to take Jack Buck up to heaven.  I remember […]
