Additional notes: On a personal note, I will be making a brief escape from Jupiter after today’s game for my first break of Spring Training. I will return to the beat on Tuesday. But don’t fret — there will be folks filling in during my absence, so you will still have plenty of content to enjoy at cardinals.com.
