07/24/2005: Will the Cardinals have to start 2006 with an 81 game road trip?
Probably not, but I'm beginning to wonder. I'm watching the ESPN Sunday Night game between the Cubs and Cardinals, in St. Louis, and Jon Miller is mentioning somthing that I'm hearing more and more in the past several days: apparently, the new Busch Stadium will not be complete come opening day, 2005. So far, the plans have it being in a condition that will allow it to open and host the 2006 home opener, but the stadium won't be completed until August, 2006, according to the reports I'm hearing.
Doesn't sound like a lot of wiggle room if any problems occur during the construction this winter.
