You Can’t Spell Ryan Franklin Without “Fail”

2010 Cardinals Baseball Preview – Starting Pitching, Part Deux

Posted: March 31, 2010 at 8:44 am   /   Local, St. Louis Cardinals

Bear with me, it’s almost over. ^ Words that have haunted me all my life. Spring training is winding down, and as the Cardinals begin their preparations to move back north, it would appear that most of the roster decisions have been made.
