03/03/2005: Gem o'the Day:
In other news, the Cardinals opened their spring season today with a win. Of course, by a win I mean "a win against a college team", and by the Cardinals I mean "your 2005 Memphis Redbirds", but it's baseball, right? Noted Cardinals mashers Reid Gorecki, Scott Seabol, and Mike Mahoney knocked Florida Atlantic pitching around to back a solid performance by ace Nerio Rodriguez. Any fears about their closer's new minor league contract were allayed when ace reliever Carmen Cali shut the door on his former
roommatesteammates. I know some people are saying it's early, but they looked good; I expect 100, maybe 110 wins from this club, if only its recently acquired right fielder, Brandon Berger, can stay healthy.
