Although spring training started last week for most teams, today feels like the real first day with the start of games. I watched the entire 9 innings of the Cardinals 8 to 7 loss to the Marlins. Fowler got on base twice and Matt Carpenter drove him in both times. I hope this is a pattern that happens a lot this season. Another positive was an error free game for the Cardinals. Last spring the team played bad defensive baseball that carried over to the regular season.
My mail today also brought another sign of baseball season getting closer.
