Feelin' Good

I know it's the start of the season and even the Pirates fans are feelin' good. However, I'm stolked...and for several reasons:
  • The Redbirds are a young team for a change. 15 of the active roster are under 30. While many are pushing 30, it is a big change from what we had last year. I'll always have a soft spot in my heart for Rolen and Edmonds. But it's nice to know that things seem to be on the upswing again.
  • The entire outfield is new and they seem to be excited to play ball. The talent of this group is eye popping. Here's hoping it comes to fruition on the field.
  • Rico Washington finally getting his chance is reeeeeeaaallly cool.
  • Last night's performance was nice to see after the debacle that was our first loss. I was wondering which will be the real Cards: the team that jumped out to a 5-1 lead on opening night or the team that blew a tiny 1 run lead through mistakes.
  • Welly pitched fairly well.
  • The only bad performance might be considered: Franklin. The bullpen has not been impressive so far.
  • Overall, if this team can hold on till Carpenter, Mulder, and Clement...yikes.
