The Lines At Busch Stadium This Year Will Be So LOOOOOOOONG

One simply does not ‘walk into’ Busch Stadium. +++++ Because ISIS has moved into the US and is looking for hot dog chompin’, beer swillin’ mid-westerners, Busch Stadium has installed metal detectors at every entrance.

Sidd Finch + The Friday Links

I’ve been loving the 30 for 30 ‘Shorts’ lately. They’re the same basic premise of the 30 for 30 documentaries (and shot in the same docu-style), but generally cover stories that are bit weirder and only need about 15-25 minutes to tell. For April Fools Day, Grantland dropped the complete story of Sidd Finch. Now, […]

The Cardinals’ 25 Man Roster Is Set

Ladies and gentlemen… your 2015 St. Louis Cardinals! At least until an early season injury and or trade and or promotion and or demotion comes into play.

BATTERS BOX

What A Major League Batter Sees In The Box

If you’re like me, the extent of your baseball playing days ended around junior high. So when you hear broadcasters and commentators talk about players ‘not picking up the ball well’ or ‘looking to get their batter’s eye right’ – you know what they’re talking about… but not really. I’ve seen 90+ MPH in person. […]

No Change? No Change. How Kris Bryant Will Change Baseball…

Let’s say you were granted the ability to create an offensive baseball player to join your team in 2015. Starting totally from scratch. Anything you want – POOF – gets tossed in the mix.

Tim McCarver To Call More Games In ’15; Dan Caesar So Happy

Chicken noodle soup when you have a cold. An electric blanket the first night of winter. A lover’s touch after a challenging day at the office. The things that we take comfort with in life are varied, but the feelings are not – the shared humanity is what makes humans bond. The soul is bathed in […]
