History was made again in Springfield, MO today. For the first time in 60-odd years, major league baseball has come to town. The Springfield Cardinals, a AA minor league team for St. Louis, played against the St. Louis Cardinals in an exhibition game. What a surprise! First of all, I didn't recognize most of the St. Louis team. Pujols, Rolen, and Edmonds are still there, but the rest seemed new. Or perhaps they just don't usually stand out. I don't know. But after watching the game, I've come away with three possibilities:

1. The new Springfield team is very good.
2. The St. Louis team really sucks this year.


3. The St. Louis Cardinals were taking it easy on their fledgling team.

How else could you explain a ninth inning score of 3-3? The St. Louis team won in the top of the ninth inning. Shouldn't they have been able to slaughter the lesser team? And where did they send their other good players? I've got some studying to do, I guess.
