I wanted to make everyone aware of something special. Friday May 17, starting in the wee hours of the morning, something called Baseball For A Cause will begin. If you’re not familiar with the game,…
So far this weekend, Cardinals fans have been treated to stellar pitching performances. On Friday and Saturday, Cards hurlers tossed back to back shutouts with three hits allowed between both games. There are no obvious weak spots in the starting rotation as of yet and as a result, the team is winning lots of games.
I just wanted to drop a quick note to let everyone know the new domain for Keene on MLB is live. I suppose after almost a year of living as a redheaded step-child of my…
This is the 6th annual United Cardinal Bloggers progressive game blog. The idea is exactly what the name implies, except that we split the duties among multiple UCB writers. This year, Keene on MLB is covering the 6th inning of the 3rd of 4 games in Milwaukee.
Recently, each year the United Cardinals Bloggers have been invited to Busch stadium to hear a presentation and enjoy a game. This year is no exception. I’m proud to be part of a group that the Cardinals organization respects enough to invite into its confines.
The 2013 Cardinals home opener is always an exciting time. It’s practically a city-wide holiday, at least for baseball fans in a 50 mile radius. Things started out well enough, and then all hell broke loose. Losing is a part of baseball. Maybe fans should learn how to cope with loss as well as professionals do. If not, you’re going to have 65-75 very painful nights in front of you this summer.
Each October the United Cardinal Bloggers hull up in a virtual bunker to discuss the most pressing issues facing Cardinal Nation. Functioning in a manner far more efficient than any government entity, and with far greater decisiveness, these bloggers answer the biggest questions you’ve had about the Cardinals. On my day to ask the question, I lobbed a 45 mph breaking ball that didn’t break.
It’s time for a United Cardinal Bloggers annual tradition, the Cardinal Blogger Awards. You have a chance to make a difference this fall. Let your voice be heard. You can’t complain if you don’t vote….
If that title seems brutally long, so was the Giants 3rd inning in game 7. It ended long after the thrill of watching baseball had gone (thanks Mr. Mellencamp). It seems to me that most teams on their way down fizzle out gradually over the course of the season. The winners grow in intensity as the season nears its end. The Cardinals did something amazing in 2012, and it wasn’t making it to the NLCS with a rookie manager. The Cardinals managed to completely and unquestionably meltdown in just three short games. Having the Giants down three games to one in the NLCS, the Cards found a way to do what had only been done twice before, allow the Giants to come back to take the series.
The legend of Chris Carpenter preceded him going into game six. His performance in clinching games is second to none. The man who pulled off the miracle of defying season ending surgery would again be called on to close this NLCS down and get the Cardinals back to St. Louis a day early. Sadly, history is just that, and a vintage performance from the Cards menacing pitcher was not to be had.
