Let the games begin!
today, the cards start their grapefruit action at roger dean stadium.
the defending world champs (still not used to saying it or typing it) play the florida marlins with whom they share the stadium.
the game will start at 1:05 p.m. ET and it will be adam wainwright vs. scott olsen
earlier today, I posted something about the cards showing interest about the rocket, roger clemens.
well, that was apparently just a small piece because strauss has written a long article on it today.
the P.D. has put up some great stuff on their site, their cards coverage is just great.
speaking of the P.D., derrick goold has a piece on josh kinney…….as a set up man.
he brings up a good point; if looper fits into the rotation as the fifth starter, who will be the new setup guy for izzy (assuming he is healthy enough to close)?
well, goold talks about the speech/pep talk that dennis eckersley gave to the bullpen guys a day or two ago.
dunc says that whoever pitches better will get the job, he also said that it might be tyler johnson or russ springer.
one more thing, the cards have agreed to contracts with 18 players including molina, reyes, hancock, kinney and thompson among others.
