The Izzy man throws off of mound

February 7, 2007

the izzy man 

cards closer (cross your fingers) jason isringhausen threw off of a mound yesterday. this was the first time since last year (september 6, blew a save against the nats; his 10th blown save).

he has not thrown a pitch since because he had to get surgery on his hip (i believe).  he threw 20 pain free pitches yesterday in jupiter, florida.

if everything goes according to schedule, the izzy man should be ready for opening day.

this means adam wainwright, the 2006 world series closer, can move back to his niche which is the rotation where i think he is severely needed.

by the way, spring training is only a week away; at least thats when pitchers and catchers report (feb. 14). i consider that the start of spring training.

seven days left!
