2013 St. Louis Cardinals Spring Training TV schedule starts Wednesday

Leon Halip

Now's your chance to watch a bunch of prospects and non-prospects on TV—if you have a nice cable package or a Roku box.

You probably won't get the panoply of St. Louis Cardinals near-prospects that put 15 runs on the Red Sox Tuesday—I don't see Ryan Jackson playing first base two games in a row, although you might get a glimpse of Starlin Rodriguez and Greg Garcia on the middle infield—but if you have a better cable package than I do, Wednesday afternoon is your chance to watch some genuine Grapefruit League baseball on MLB Network (and MLB.TV—though, frustratingly, not to subscribers who stream to their PS3.)

Because this should probably be on here somewhere, what follows is a list of Grapefruit League Cardinals games that definitely will be broadcast on MLB.TV, according to the MLB.com schedule. Please keep in mind that all of these are subject to change, and also to just be wrong.

March 1, 12:05 PM CST: Cardinals vs. Houston Astros. Your chance to watch Jeff Luhnow's Cardinals before they make their move to the American League. It'll be just like a split-squad game, right down to Tyler Greene starting on one of the teams.

March 8, 12:05 PM CST: Cardinals vs. Washington Nationals. Your chance to remember how much fun that NLDS was, and then forget about the NLCS that came immediately afterward.

March 11, 12:05 PM CDT: Cardinals vs. New York Yankees.

March 14, 12:05 PM CDT: Cardinals vs. Atlanta Braves

March 15, 12:05 PM CDT: Cardinals vs. Nationals. Your chance to remember that Spring Training game against the Nationals from the week before.

March 17, 12:05 PM CDT: Cardinals vs. Miami Marlins. It'll be just like a split-squad game, because most of the Marlins' best players went somewhere else to play.

March 18, 12:05 PM CDT: Cardinals vs. New York Mets.

March 19, 12:05 PM CDT: Cardinals vs. Marlins

March 21, 12:10 PM CDT: Cardinals vs. Mets. (Watch out for that start time.)

March 23, 12:05 PM CDT: Cardinals vs. Marlins

March 24, 12:05 PM CDT: Cardinals vs. Mets (SS). It'll be just like a split-squad game, because the Mets will have split their squad.

March 25, 12:05 PM CDT: Cardinals vs. Minnesota Twins

March 26, 12:10 PM CDT: Cardinals vs. Mets. It'll be nothing like a split-squad game at all.

March 27, 12:05 PM CDT: Cardinals vs. Nationals (SS). At least compared to this one.

March 28, 12:05 PM CDT: Cardinals vs. Marlins

I'm always a little disappointed that the Spring Training TV schedule tends to pick up later in the Grapefruit League season, after most of the players we're unlikely to see in the regular season have been kicked out. But I suppose I'm willing to trade a few extra chances to watch Starlin Rodriguez for an almost daily look at Matt Carpenter at second base, provided he's still stalking the middle infield in late March.
