Adron Chambers: A Moment Remembered

The dog days of summer were setting in. It was August 13th and the Cardinals were in the midst of pretty brutal homestand, losing 3 out of 4 to the Dodgers before dropping 2 of 3 from the Cubs.

World Series Preview: St. Louis Cardinals vs Boston Red Sox

With the World Series set to start tomorrow in Boston, its time for the obligatory World Series Preview and Predictions.  So far I'm 2-0 in my predictions (or maybe its 1.5-0.5, since I predicted the Cardinals to win the NLCS in 7), primarily because I'm a homer and would never predict against the Cards.

The Cardinals, The Dodgers, And Depth

Team depth can be defined many different ways: the quality of your fifth starter, the quality of your bench, the contributions from your non-stars. And, looking at the results of the games so far in the National League Championship Series, you might think the Cardinals had superior depth, given home runs by Adron Chambers and shutdown innings by Seth Maness. But if we look at the...
