Every year, the group known as the UCB (the United Cardinal Bloggers) come together on one massive project known as the United Cardinal Bloggers Annual. I-70 baseball has been a proud member of the UCB for almost three years and we have contributed to the Annual every year of our existence.  This year, a post dedicated to the memory of my father was chosen as the “Post Of The Year” and included in the publication.  I also contributed a brief look at the history of the Houston Astros, their rivalry with the St. Louis Cardinals, and their subsequent move to the American League. The result of all the hard work this year is a 25-chapter ebook dedicated to the memory of Stan Musial that takes a look back at the 2012 Cardinals and a look forward to 2013. National writers Will Leitch and Drew Silva check in with their own thoughts in the book as well as 18 bloggers from around the internet. The 2013 United Cardinal Bloggers Annual is available as an e-book at the Amazon Kindle store for $4...

Stan the Man

Stan Musial represented everything that I believed baseball was when I was a kid. He represented everything that is sorely missing from the game today.

Musial died on January 19 at 92. I hadn’t given...

Stan Musial: Albert Pujols reflects on the passing of "The Man"

Stan Musial And Frank Thomas Recall A Cleaner Time

This morning, I’d like to comment a little on two stories from the weekend, neither of them Mets related because, well, they haven’t done anything. The first is Stan Musial’s funeral and the second Frank Thomas’ comments from the White Sox’s annual fan convention. In different ways, both speak to baseball’s history in a profound light. Both return us to a cleaner, simpler...
