You might address the total lack of offense by the Cardinals this spring.

Agreed, and it has me very concerned that we just aren’t ready for the real season. Leake was excellent again and like last year we barely hit. And as for power,I’m not seeing where its going to come from. Hope I’m very wrong.

Well, there IS the hope that Big City comes thru. There are a lot of fans commenting on different blogs, who feel he’ll have his mojo back this season.

Haley, what are some of the other blogs you mentioned. I may be interested in joining?

Aw, I can’t remember now. Let me look around & get back to you.
