  • All that glitters isn’t Gold by Bob Ryan The ol’ expression “All that glitters isn’t Gold” holds true in the sports world  too…in fact…right here in the Lou… …Yadier Molina is without question a hero throughout StL…his durability, his ability to call the correct sequence of pitches, his relationship with pitchers—especially young ones, his increased batting ability over the years…his “hero” status ranks right ...
  • Behind the Scenes by Bob Ryan Sometimes we see “stuff’ in front of us….but sometimes…the REAL ACTION is behind the scenes where deals are done, info is spread,  ideas are planted for future harvesting, often we learn about it later..much later… about these deal….or…maybe not at all… …Clearly the talk behind the scenes in CoMO recently about Barry Odum wasn’t flattering..or even ...
  • He stepped into it by Bob Ryan In the NLCS, Manny Machado clearly stepped on the foot of the Brewer 1B….then he really stepped into it…..he was called out by the Brewers as being “dirty” since he’s done similar types of things previously… despite his prodigious power….Machado’s action …it seems to me…..relegates him to a 2nd tier type team signing him …the ...
  • MLB – Both sides of their mouth by Bob Ryan So….the MLB is upset about coaches stealing signs of opposing coaches by using technology…”it’s changing the game” they say……really (did you sense the sarcastic tone)? First of all, how many signs are given these days….I can’t imagine that there are many “take” signs, steal signs, hit & run signs, bunt (what a lost art) signs….the ...
  • Swamped by the Tide by Bob Ryan Having the opportunity to watch the entire Mizzou-Bama football game yesterday, many thoughts flooded into my head…. …no one ….aside maybe from… maybe….a hard partying Mizzou fan after hours of celebrating….. Expected Mizzou to beat Alabama… but the hopes were that it’d be “competitive”… the 1st quarter kept those hopes alive …Bama’s outside receiver speed was too ...
  • Blues & Hockey by Bob Ryan The Blues 2018-19 season just opened up…..the 50+ year quest for the Stanley Cup will resume for our Boys in Blue…..1st ….a wider perspective of the sport of hockey…. Hockey has many unique qualities…..of course, it’s the only sport played on ice…it’s the only sport that allows substitutions “during” a play…..it’s the only sport that permits….and ...
  • MLB Awards by Bob Ryan It’s that time of year….season is wrapped up…..post-season is heating up….let’s take a look at some possible post-season MLB Awards…..you will be familiar with some of them…others…not so much! Cy Young….Best Pitcher of each league….both of my nominees are young and would be 1st time winners…in the AL it has to be Blake Snell…who you say?…..he’s ...
  • Moving On by Bob Ryan As the baseball season winds down ….and prior to the excitement of post-season….veteran players reevaluate their status in the MLB……as usual….some will be “hanging it up”…and maybe some should “move on”……here’s a short list of players playing their final week of baseball….probably ending a passion that began as small boys in their home towns/cities Already have ...
  • Strikeout or Home Run by Bob Ryan Currently…..it seems in most baseball games…. that batters hit a home run or a strikeout…..well…..we’ll look @ some stats to verify that notion and expand the HR v K in other areas….. In MLB stats…..take a look at HR/plate app    and K/plate appearance over  a span of time HR/Plate app                      K/plate appearance         HR+K/plate appearance     ...
  • One Would Think by Bob Ryan One would think…..                         …For all the hype about Jordan Hicks fastball…..one would think…that his strikeout/inning ratio would be very good….not so much…the “good” ones average more than 1 strikeout per inning… Hicks has 60 strikeouts in 68 innings..under 1.00/inning ..meanwhile Wade Davis (Colorado closer) K/inn ratio is  over 1.000…66 strikeouts in 57 innings..there are many ...
  • Contenders or Pretenders by Bob Ryan Contenders  or Pretenders Hottest team in the MLB BY FAR right now..and now a contender… is the St. Louis Cardinals…winner of 10 straight series….the Cards have blended a plethora of youth into their pitching corp, rebuilt the confidence of some key young field players, began using the run game offensively,  established a  very sound “up the ...
  • Foul Ball with 2 Strikes by Bob Ryan So on July 15, the Cards fired Mike Matheny and appointed Mike Shildt “interim manager”….it was a clear indication that the Cards realized a managerial move had to be made but weren’t exactly sure that Shildt was the “man”…at that time it seemed that he had about as much chance of becoming the permanent manager ...
  • Sports Dynasties & Cards Starters by Bob Ryan Another Super Bowl is behind us now….what a game…..it was entertaining throughout the game….the 41-33 win by the Eagles broke most team offensive records…..most of you watched it so no need to recap…just a couple odds & ends… …..Eagles Coach Doug Pederson stayed aggressive throughout the entire game…he didn’t change in the 2nd half… ….Nick Foles lived ...
  • Behind Closed Doors by Bob Ryan Behind closed doors…insiders share info with their REAL feelings and speculations on why actions/moves have taken place in the sports world.. .. is usually done without any PC talk… talking behind closed doors it was heard that….. …behind closed doors the talk was about the Cards pushing their win total upwards ….there are a couple ways ...
  • Turning the Tide by Bob Ryan Sure…it’s a week ago…but it’s still the talk….just how did Alabama rally to beat the #1seed-Georgia in the 2nd half. There isn’t any one play, strategy, or factor that changed the outcome by itself but there were a few combinations of factors that had some impact on the final Tide surge….. ….in the 1st half…the Bulldogs ...
