Cards sign Navy kid Mitch Harris

1

The promising talent Mitch Harris has been signed. The question is when will we see him in uniform. If it is in 5 years then I will be bummed because this kid looks like he could be a steal by being selected in the 13th round of last years draft.

"Appreciating the genius of Cardinals manager Tony La Russa"

An appreciation of TLR by Joe Posnanski. Bonus link: a "caption contest" at Yahoo Sports for a photo of TLR looking at his line-up card and casting a long shadow, with the question "So what happens when Tony La Russa sees his shadow?" The best submission so far: "Six more weeks of Chris Carpenter on the disabled list." http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/blog/big_league_stew/post/C-a-C-So-what-happens-when-Tony-La-Russa-sees-?urn=mlb,144455

Minor League Notebook Cardinals articles

NL Central Top 10 Prospects 1. Colby Rasmus - CF - St. Louis Cardinals Positives - Rasmus plays excellent defense in center field and projects to stay there. At the plate he couples an advanced approach with above average power and speed. Negatives - Rasmus struggled for the most past last year as the Cardinals tried to alter his approach and get him to use the whole field. He will need to show that his struggles were merely a fluke. 5. Brett Wallace - 3B - St. Louis Cardinals Positives - Wallace has good power and showed it off in his pro debut as he slugged .547 including his time in the AFL all while hitting .327. He is a guy who can just hit. Negatives - His walk rate was a mediocre 8.26% in his pro debut after being 13.5% in college. There is also some concern that he may move to first base rather soon due to his thick lower half. There is also more stuff in the league previews on Cardinal prospects. I know its a little bit of self promotion as I write for the site, but not all articles were written by me. If the Mods have an issue with this, please email me.

Cub fans name their baby daughter Addison N. Clark - the address of Wrigley Field

Their son could be named Broadway N. Clark if they were Cardinals fans. But Cards fans wouldn't do that.

They're doing this for a blogger for each team at Yahoo Sports. A couple examples: 16. Cardinals fans are the most polite fans in the entire world ... except when it comes to Tino Martinez. We loathe Tino Martinez. 17. Willie. McGee. Rules.

Just wondering if anyone knew if the game was being broadcast somewhere today? Thanks for the help.
