Good afternoon icy St. Louis. By the time you are reading this, you have likely locked yourself in to your own boy dungeon and my guess is you have surrounded yourself with all of your favorite treats. I trust you have at least 30 cold ones on ice and likely, in a knee-jerk reaction because […]

St. Louis Cardinals: Dexter Fowler comps should be a concern

St. Louis Cardinals fans rejoiced last week when it was finally announced that general manager John Mozeliak was able to land his big fish, Dexter Fowler. Mozeliak certainly pushed some of his own boundaries with this deal, extending Fowler to five-years at a price tag of $82.5 million to bring him to St. Louis. The […]

I have seen so many post words of encouragement in regards to Mizzou’s triumphant comeback victory over Arkansas to end a miserable 4-8 season for first year coach Barry Odom. So many say, “Way to end the season on a high note,” or “This will build some great momentum in to recruiting season.” Most of […]

Its the first Saturday of the baseball season and you have likely already scarfed down a couple hundred carbs in long-john donuts from your favorite little spot and if you are like me, you have sucked down a pot of coffee (possibly spiked with Bailey’s or Kahlua). You might need to pinch yourself after what […]

Yesterday, I unveiled the left side of the #CardsMadness bracket with the #MusialRegion and the #GibsonRegion in this project that I was surprised had not been done. My good friend Daniel Shoptaw, @C70, has done things very similar to this over at CardsConclave, so this may be stealing a little from his arsenal. Also as […]

Pitchers and catchers have reported at this point and the stories of potential lineups that St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny may run out there in 2016 already has the BFIB in a tizzy. Will Matheny let Matt Carpenter lead-off, something he might do better than anyone else in baseball, again in 2016? Will Kolten […]

Paying our respects to Joe Strauss

Paying our respects to Joe Strauss

Upon hearing the news Sunday morning that Joe Strauss was no longer with us, I was floored. He was just 54 years of age, only 22 years older than myself. That within itself is scary. But I also was selfishly disappointed because it is Strauss that had become the single, most important voice on the […]

By now, you have heard that a media outlet called Al Jazeera (very credible, I might add) has a documentary called the “The Dark Side: The Secret World of Sports Dopers” set to air on their website later today. In that documentary, based on an undercover report by a British hurdler, several prominent American athletes […]

John Mozeliak is smarter than you.  He is smarter than me as well, so please do not feel as though I am only singling you out. But it must be said, that he is much smarter than you, despite the criticism he has faced this offseason for his failures in luring Jason Heyward and David […]
