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.

I am a woman. I would be more than happy to have more money in my paycheck. Too bad the Paycheck Fairness Act won't do that for me. Who wants "equality" if it comes because everyone makes less money?

Nonetheless, the Paycheck Fairness Act is the latest weapon in the War On Women, part II--2014 election style.
