In a twist from our normal roundtable format, where we have a blogger ask one question and get many answers from the participating audience, this time we asked a bunch of questions from the audience for one blogger.  The results will surprise and uplift you.  (Is that how we are supposed to that these days?)

A new permanent addition to the UCB project roster has been our selections of who should be included in the Cardinal Hall of Fame, which has just opened in Ballpark Village.  Using the ballot the Cardinals have provided, we’ve made our personal selections and the votes have been combined below to give out what the UCB as a whole would recommend.  Have you voted for your HOFers yet?  Voting ends Tuesday, so you better get to it!

We do this every year about this time, we call it preseason predictions.  No guarantees are made, no wagers should be placed given these picks.  It’s all in fun and not at all for looking back later on!

The general format is to have a post each day this week, with the American League all in one day, each National League division on a day, and then the postseason and awards on Friday.  However, that’s only a suggestion and below you’ll find a few links that do it a different way.  Continue to check back through the week as links are added!

Every year at this time, the United Cardinal Bloggers do one of their semi-annual roundtables.  The concept is pretty simple: a blogger asks a question to the group via email, everyone responds during the day, and the next day the blogger posts the transcript of the discussion for public examination.

There are always a lot of questions in the spring, some that flow out of what is happening on the fields of Jupiter, some that are more overarching.  Be sure to check out the blogs below on their day to see what we were talking about!  (A * after the blog means that the link has been updated to go directly to the transcript post.)
