Cardinals Fall To Mets

Jon Jay was 3-for-3 with two RBI but the Cardinals fell to the Mets yesterday, 10-7. Allen Craig was 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI in the loss. Jake Westbrook allowed three runs, two earned, over six innings in the start. St. Louis is now 12-and-14 in spring play. The Cards battle the Twins in Fort Myers today.

Cardinals third baseman David Freese will have an MRI on his back today. He was a scratch from yesterday's lineup after experiencing pain in his lower back. The team says it's possible Freese will not be ready by Opening Day. Freese will also likely be limited to minor-league games the rest of the spring, if he's able to play.

What will the future hold for the Class of 2015? Time will tell.

My youngest has now graduated from high school. Back in 1980, I was the youngest of my family who graduated.
