Happy Friday, everyone! Frankly, it stinks that the Cardinals are off today after yesterday’s home opener, highlighted by Nolan Arenado’s game-winning, two-run homer in the eighth inning.
(Good thinking here, Cat..)

Friday’s day off will be good for a bullpen like St. Louis’s that has already logged 29 innings this season — the third most in the National League. It’ll also do Paul Goldschmidt some good; Goldy sat out of yesterday’s home opener, dealing with back tightness..
Per Cardinals PR: Paul Goldschmidt is being held out of the lineup for precautionary reasons, is experiencing lower back tightness.— Katie Woo (@katiejwoo) April 8, 2021
The Cardinals and Brewers will be back in action on Saturday afternoon, with Carlos Martinez up against Adrian Houser.
Have a good weekend!
