Rollin’ Rollin’ Rollin’

Remember that Limp Bizkit song? That’s what I think about when I think  about this team. We just keep rollin’.  With the additions of Lugo and Holliday, we have really gained some much needed momentum.  Holliday has been on fire. They say sometimes you just need a change of scenery and apparently it was true with him.  He is a great teammate but I already knew that. We played together on the 1997 Junior USA Team in Canada.

After my 0-for-3 with a walk on Sunday, the mustache had to go. It was working there for a while, but I guess it ran its course. August is here and with our division being so tight, every game counts from here on out.  This past series with the Astros had a playoff feel. It’s exciting. If we can keep our bats hot and our starting pitching stays on course, this will be a fun ride.

Don’t forget about my charity wine benefiting Stray Rescue St Louis (strayrescue.org). Randy Grim, the director of Stray Rescue, just launched his latest book “Don’t Dump the Dog,” and my wife and I attended the VIP Party.  We got to meet the staff from Best Friends Animal Society and the show Dog Town on the National Geographic Channel. They are great people doing great things for animals in need. It’s a great wine for a great charity.

Until next time….

Changes and adjustments

I want to say thank you to everyone for their well wishes on my health.  My shoulder isn’t 100% but I’m dealing with it, just like everyone in the clubhouse is dealing with something. I’m continuing treatment so I’m starting to feel better in my swing.  I’m making some adjustments and hopefully things will continue to turn around for me in the box.  

I launched my charity wine last weekend benefiting Stray Rescue St Louis (StrayRescue.org). Stray Rescue saves dogs and cats living on city streets and helps them find homes. My wife and I have two dogs, a rottweiler and a Siberian husky, and they are a big part of our family. The wine is  a 2006 Napa Valley Cabernet blend. It’s a very enjoyable red. You can order it online at http://www.wineandcheeseplace.com to benefit a great cause.

There has been a lot of movin’ and shakin’ around our team lately.  But I’m sad to see Chris Duncan go. He was one of my good friends on the team and it won’t be the same without him in the clubhouse.  He will be missed. As you know, we gained Julio Lugo in the trade and now we have acquired Matt Holliday.  It looks like the front office is really trying to get this team in a position to win another World Series. It’s an exciting time to be a Cardinal.  I have a good feeling about this team and can’t wait to see how the puzzle pieces fall into place.

Till next time….
