Re:  Jason Heyward

Dear Mr. DeWitt:

It is always a pleasure to hear you speak at the annual United Cardinals Bloggers event at Busch Stadium every year.  You are straightforward and very informative, and you patiently answer everyone’s questions.  You and Mr. Mozeliak treat us bloggers with great respect, for which we are greatly appreciative.

I am writing today in regard to Jason Heyward, the Cardinals’ current right fielder.  As you know, Mr. Heyward will be a free agent at the end of the 2015 season.  I and other Cardinals fans enjoy watching Mr. Heyward in right field. Mr. Heyward has a cannon for an arm and is very good at throwing out runners at home plate.  He presently has the best batting average on the team. He has the most stolen bases on the team.  He appears to get along well with his teammates.  From what I can see, he is well behaved off the field and he appears to have acclimated to the Cardinal way of comporting himself.

We Cardinals fans were hoping that Oscar Tavares was going to be the Cards’ right fielder for years to come.  Oscar’s tragic death, however, precipitated the need to sign a high quality right fielder, even though it meant trading fan favorite Shelby Miller.  We Cards fans are happy that Shelby is doing well in Atlanta and we wish him the best.  However, we are quite happy with Mr. Heyward and his talents and we hope that he will be the Cards’ right fielder for years to come.

In closing, I would request that you please sign Mr. Heyward to a long term contract at yours and his earliest convenience.  Thank you for your attention to this matter.  I look forward to the news of Mr. Heyward’s signing soon.

Very truly yours,

Diane M. Schultz

It’s 2013 Cardinals Blogger Awards time!

UCB_11Now that I’m over the disappointment of the Cardinals losing the World Series (and it took me a whole week – I still haven’t worn my 2013 NLCS shirt yet – maybe tomorrow), it’s time to move on and think about the major awards hardware that will be given out next week by the Baseball Writers Association of America.  Some of our beloved Cardinals have been nominated for these awards. Yadier Molina has been nominated for Most Valuable Player, Adam Wainwright has been nominated for the Cy Young award, and Shelby Miller has been nominated for Rookie of the Year.  The only Cardinal missing from the awards discussion is Mike Matheny for manager of the year.

Since we Cardinals fans aren’t professional baseball writers, we don’t get to vote on the BBWAA awards. But now you can make your voice heard.  There is a ballot that you as a Cardinals fan can vote on.  This is the seventh year for the United Cardinals Blogger Awards.  Full disclosure:  one of my blog posts is nominated for Post of the Year.  For your convenience, I have embedded the ballot below:

Don’t forget to vote!  It will be interesting to see the results, and I’ll be sure to post the results when they are tabulated.  Feel free to share this blog post with others so they can vote too.  I hope you enjoy voting.  Thanks for reading (and voting) and I’ll see you next time!
