The Time is Near...

by LS Murphy

Last night, most people watched the New Orleans Saints defeat the Indianapolis Colts in the Superbowl. Or they watched the commercials. Either way, the event signaled the end of the NFL season and moved us that much closer to Florida dreams. In other words, Spring Training will get underway shortly.

The off-season is almost over with only minor moves left. Fans await the anticipation of David Freese's performance at third. Some hoping he is the answer to the hot corner, others still hoping for a deal.

We await the performances of Rich Hill, Blake Hawksworth, Mitchell Boggs, Jaime Garcia, and Kyle McClellan. Who will be the fifth starter? Will they all get a turn or will one of them stand out and own the job?

We will watch with great anticipation each throw of Brad Penny. Can Dave Duncan resurrect yet another pitcher's career? I certainly hope so for as much as the team is shelling out for his salary.

And our eyes will still be on the front office. Will Mo make another move before Opening Day?

No matter what happens, baseball is around the corner. None of us can hardly wait anymore. Especially since we know our team, our beloved St. Louis Cardinals. will take us into October and to our 11th World Series title.
