Good morning & happy Monday! Here in the midwest today, we’re seeing sunshine and temperatures near 70, and this definitely giving off some baseball vibes as we are just a little over three weeks from Opening Day.

In yesterday’s game against the Astros, Yadier Molina reminded us why we have grown to love him here in St. Louis. Jomboy broke it down beautifully.

Over the weekend, Jake Odorizzi signed a two-year deal with the Astros. Odorizzi was linked to the Cardinals about a month ago, and with Carlos Martinez’s early spring woes and Miles Mikolas’s “creaky shoulder”, Odorizzi’s name came up again this past week; obviously, nothing came of it. Odorizzi’s contract that includes a player option could be worth upwards of $30 million.

The Cardinals will take on the Marlins this afternoon in Jupiter. Kwang Hyun Kim will get his second outing of the spring, and we will see a starting outfield (left to right) Justin Williams, Lane Thomas, and Dylan Carlson. Enjoy your day!
