Yes, yes, the Devil Rays are last on the list for the AL East previews, can you blame me if I'm not raring to write about them? I'm just so thrilled beyond belief that I can't get to them. Maybe tonight, once I get back from softball practice. In the meantime.... BASEBALL HAS STARTED.... and some enterprising fellow on Viva El Birdos discovered a link to watch spring training games on Gameday, which is how I do the vast majority of my game-watching. So... right now... I am watching ADAM pitch against the Marlins, and can you blame me for squealing with happiness? The update time isn't the greatest... but it's ADAM... and the CARDINALS.... and BASEBALL!!!

The offseason is over! Praise jeebus!

The man is just so fricken' adorable. Look at him concentrate on that bunt like it's the most important thing in the world.

He's even cute as a bobblehead. Yes, I have been sorely tempted to buy the Adam World Series bobblehead off eBay.

No, there is no point and purpose to this post except to a) rejoice in the glory that is baseball reborn from the depths of offseason darkness, and b) Adam Wainwright is just so cute I can't stand it. Devil Rays preview later, if you must.

edit: The Cards win 6-3, with Randy Flores permitting 2 of the runs in the ninth. Adam threw 3 scoreless, hitless innings, needing only 30 pitches. The Rockies are currently whipping up on the White Sox 11-4, with big men Atkins, Holliday, and Hawpe all showing up and contributing in a big way. Baseball is back and this girl is happy.

Hi again,

It's nice to find another Cards fan with Denver ties. I still live here. While I follow the Rockies pretty close, the Cards are still my team. Been rooting for them since back in the 80s glory days. If you aren't in CO, how do you get your Rockies info (if you don't mind my asking)?

I get my Rox info off their website, the SB Nation blog Purple Row, and CBS Sportsline. :) I actually do live in Colorado, but I'm at college in New York at the moment.

That's cool. Well, like I said, it's nice to find another Cards fan in Colorado. I read Viva El Birdos pretty much every day. Now I'll read yours too. :-)

Do you do fantasy/rotisserie baseball at all? With your blog and college, do you have any leftover time for that?
