Don’t Believe The Hype

Suddenly everything is coming up roses for the St. Louis Cardinals. Or is it?

When Your Best Isn’t Nearly Good Enough

The Cardinals let one slip through their fingers last night. With chance after chance to get a much needed win last night, the Cardinals fell flat on their face.

No Chance

For those of you expecting to read the typical *Happy! Happy! Joy! Joy!* crap the rest of the media covering the Cardinals is dishing out, you are in for the shock of your life. I don’t for one second think the Cardinals are going to have a good week. I’m a realist people. I know for a fact life isn’t fair, and it’s not filled bubble gum clouds, rivers of hot fudge, and streets paved with candy. At times it sucks. It bites. And it blows. Unfortunately for us Cardinals fans, at the moment it’s doing all three. Life can’t always be lollipops & rainbows.

Monday, Bloody Monday

You have no idea just how bad of a Monday my family & my poor dad just had. Unreal. I know I promised a full report about this past weekends games, but I’ve been up since 12pm Sunday, and it’s now 7am Tuesday. I can barely put together a coherent thought, let alone a full report about a weekend series the Cardinals had vs the Fighting Phillies. There really isn’t that much to talk about. KIPPY proved once again he’s the worst starting pitcher in the bigs. Mike Maroth continues to show why the Tigers were so willing to give him away for next to nothing. Bright side is the Home Run Derby woke up Albert’s bat. And apparently AK watched and took some notes. Who knew? Anyway, after I get some sleep I promise to try and come up with something original to talk about. Till then, I’m just grateful Bloody Monday is over. Seriously, you wouldn’t believe me if I told you. Unfreaking real. I’m off to get some sleep. Make it a great one.

Till next time this is Jonny Bone reminding every one, that the light at the end of the tunnel, may be you.

Always make it bounce.


First Half Report Card – Thinking Outside Of The Box

I hope every one enjoyed the All Star break. We here at ATAW sure did. It’s always good to step back and gain a fresh perspective on things every once in a while. Which is what I did. So today we’ll go over how I think the Cardinals preformed so far this season, and what changes I think need to be made if they expect to make the playoffs come October.

Jocketty’s Greatest Hits Collection

…includes 30 songs on 9(!) CDs. Rare B sides, live recordings, and never released tracks – until now! The whole package can be yours for only $29.99!!!

Just kidding. With the trade deadline for 2007 approaching quickly for this year, I’ve decided to look back of some of Walt Jocketty’s player personnel moves over the last few years. The hope is to identify some hope for a big move or two that Jocketty might make this summer. We’ll cover the period 1999 through the present day and look at what I consider his ‘big’ trades, signings, and draft picks. Here we go:
