Epstein looks to join the Cubs

“Twas the night after Theo signed and all the Cubs’ fans’ houses. Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. The uniforms were hung by the lockers with care, in the hopes that Albert Pujols would soon be there.” It didn’t take more than 15 minutes after reading my first article about Theo Epstein […] Read More

Rangers steal Game 2

As I said after the game on Twitter, I expected the Cardinals to lose this one. Just not the way they did. By all accounts Jaime Garcia should have been lit up by the Texas Rangers offense that can be easily considered to be the best offensively producing team against left handed pitchers in the […] Read More

In part one, I overviewed the Cardinals biggest question and some of the decisions that they'll have to make in the offseason. In part two, I talked about players with […] Read More
