Catching Up With The Cardinals: So Long, Skip, Edition

As Cardinal Nation collectively says good-bye to Skip Schumaker, here’s a quick look at a few things beyond the obvious ones in the Post-Dispatch and at the Cardinals website you might have missed.

Schumaker played “The Cardinal Way” — from Jordan Palmer at

Cardinals banking on clubhouse chemistryby Brian Feldman at

Skipping Town — from Daniel, C70 At the Bat

Cardinals classic: Skip Schumaker bests Roy Halladay — by Mark Tomasik at RetroSimba

Skip Schumaker traded; St. Louis Cardinals fans can like him now — by Dan Moore at Viva El Birdos

Also, here’s an interview yesterday with Skip himself from 101ESPN

Finally, we’ve written much about Skip here at Aaron Miles’ Fastball — including, of course, his pitching debut (and Aaron Miles’ revenge at Skip taking over his pitching role) back in August 2011. That very moment was something Aaron himself remember quite well (although it appears Aaron has forgotten he has a Twitter account). And remember Skip’s Cardinals commercial this year?

Thanks, Skip, for your many contributions as a Cardinal — and best wishes to you with the Dodgers!
