Cardinals news and notes: Weaver, Fowler, and Super Bowl tweets

Luckily, VEB season lasts all year and here's what you may have missed yesterday:

  • Here's the Red Baron's recap on #5 prospect Luke Weaver who drew a comparison to Anthony Reyes.  And speaking of Anthony Reyes, this year is the tenth anniversary of the 2006 World Series Championship and the Cardinals will have several giveaways commemorating that team in a July series vs. the Marlins.

Super Bowl Tweets

  • The Cardinals and the rest of baseball were watching the Super Bowl and tweeting about it.  Here's another one to add to the gallery:

Dexter Fowler

I just ran through a brick wall.  Have a great Tuesday, everyone.
