Cardinals Schedule

After suffering through 4 off-days during the first 11 days of the regular season, the Cardinals are going to play a lot of baseball over the next few weeks.

Over the next 13 days, counting today, the Cardinals will not have a single day off as they churn through the entire NL Central (if you count the last 2 days against the Reds.) After getting a day off on Thursday April 28th, the Redbirds play on 17 straight days, giving them 30 games over the next 31 days (barring rain). That's quite a stretch with not much downtime.

We're going to find out a lot about the team during this 31 day span - especially the first stretch of 13 games. How is Jimmy Journell going to look this time around? Could Journell and Cali be this year's version of Calero and Haren? Is Morris going to be in 2004 form, or pre-2004 form? How will Mulder look vs. the Pirates on Monday? Stay tuned...

I know that MLB turned over their scheduling to another company after the "no Cubs/Cards in September" fiasco of last year, but what is up with 4 off days this early?

Of course, Texas still hasn't had an off-day, so I guess everyone gets these stretches, they just are in different portions of the seaosn.

Eh, it works out for us in the end... no fill-in 5th starter needed... Morris starts Tuesday.

Here's to seeing the beard terrify EVERYONE!!
