This is one of the best times of the year. The anticipation of a new year is incredible. As much as the press dwells on the negative (see any Sosa article), a lot of the coverage of our beloved team is positive. Every other article is saying Borowski has his velocity back, or Zambrano is more mature, or Walker says we will do what Seattle did a couple years back. We have 162 chances to see if those, as well as other items, come true.
I am jealous of everyone who is buying tickets today for games at Wrigley. I havent been to a game at Wrigley since June 2003, which was right before I moved down to St. Louis. I am set right now for the April 20 game down here at Busch, and there is a good chance I will be heading to the game the next day on the 21st. I think it is a shame that the Cubs and Cardinals play games during the week. It was always cool when every series was on a weekend. Especially a four gamer that would start on Thursday. I can remember, i think I was in 5th grade, a big September series in '89. The Cardinals came to town for a big weekend series. I was grounded so I was stuck listening to the game in my room on the radio and the Cubs blew a big lead to lose the game. I was so ticked off and I just KNEW that they also blew there chance to make the playoffs. Glad I was wrong on that one. Does anyone remember that game? I'm pretty sure it was '89.
I was just introduced to Blogs last month. Never really knew much about them. I was drawn to this one because of the reports that we will be getting from every home game. I look forward to those Al. I hope that maybe I can add just a little bit to this website with some insight from down here in Cardinal territory. Im interested to see what happens with St. Louis. I think losing Matheney, Womack, and Renteria is big. But everyone down here seems to be comforted by the pickup of Mulder. I wonder how healthy Mulder is? I will believe it when I see it.
Thanks for keeping this site up Al and I look forward to a fun season.
