I remember the first time I held a live hand grenade.
Not fully realizing how loud the blast was going to be after I threw it, I did realize that what I held in my hand needed to be let go, because the longer I held it, the more potential for
On April 13th, I wrote a post on 5 stats that were surely to get better. At the time, the Cardinals were 3-6 and off to the worst start in the Mike Matheny era. The club has not really turned things around, but have these individual stats improved? Let's take
This is the article you're looking for. You don't need to see in-depth Cardinals information. Move Along...(to the rest of the article I mean).
In the saturated world of internet blogs, in addition to the standard media outlets, Cardinals coverage rains down upon us constantly. Therefore, when handed a rain-out, insightful

At 3-6, the St. Louis Cardinals are off to their worst start in the Mike Matheny era. We know the Cardinals will not continue to play .333 ball (that would be 54 wins on the season), but how deep of a hole is the club in? Yes, it's too early
Baseball's opening night is near. But what it will bring? Well, I can tell you exactly how it will unfold, for last night I had a vision that was both clear and true. Shall we begin?
Prologue: The Top of the 1st
‘Tis the 2nd of April in the year 2017; the
One of my favorite things about following baseball writers over the years has always been seeing their predictions. Even better than that is recapping them at the end of the year to see how many were right. Now that I've got a platform to share my thoughts, I figured I'd
Projecting performance of starting pitchers is always tricky business. Injuries lurk around every corner. When I took a look at each of the Cardinals starters, I assumed a full season's worth of work. It's likely that one or more of them won't reach the games or innings totals I based
