Breathe Deep…Soak It All In

It’s been a whirlwind of a few days for Cardinals fans. I’ve seen a lot of great things in my 30 years of following the team. 2011 is in a class of its own. You’ve read the articles and recaps, and watched the videos. Some of you are probably watching MLB network nonstop as you […]

Could You Write a Better Story?…..

Than the 2011 World Series. Oh boy, is this one for the ages. I couldn’t imagine more twists and turns, and weird plays, and clutch hits,  untimely errors, and heroic comebacks than this series has given us. It was sweet redemption for the Cardinals that they don’t have the taste of game 5 in their […]

I hope to reverse that trend over the next week and a half of World Series baseball! On a personal note: I was offered a writing position with baseballhq.com recently, and […]

It All Comes Down to This

In the meantime, a few quick thoughts about today’s game: -What a great feeling that the Cards control their own destiny today! -Brett Myers has been really, really good […]

Exorcising the Demons…

Cardinal nation is abuzz on twitter tonight, and I love it. I feel good about our chances of playoffs, not only because of how well we have been playing, but the wheels seem to have fallen off in Atlanta. In addition to losing Hanson and Jurrjens from their starting rotation, the Braves offense has become […]
