Spring training is not far off and the inaugural World Baseball Classic will be upon us in a few weeks as well. Both are truely good signs and worth the anticipation. But the Cards opener in Philadelphia on April 3rd is what I'm looking forward to with excitement. Then one week later, on the 10th of April, newly finished Busch Stadium will host the home opener between the Cardinals and the Brewers. Several key positions will be need to be filled before then to fill the vacancies of the departed Mark Grudzielanek, Reggie Sanders and Larry Walker. It will also be nice to have Scott Rolen back out there at 3rd. Hopefully he can get back up to his normal stride early on. It is looking like I'll be in St. Louis in late June for a game and hopefully here closer to home in San Diego in late May for a few visits to Petco as well. Go Red Birds!
