On Tuesday, the St. Louis Cardinals’ two upper level minor league clubs traveled to Port St. Lucie to take on their New York Mets counterparts. Palm Beach and Peoria welcomed New York’s two Class-A clubs to the back fields in Jupiter. Memphis and Palm Beach, were victorious and Springfield and Peoria fell. The Cardinals’ spring record against external minor league competition is 16-18-6. Among the Mets’ major leaguers to bat regularly in the Memphis game were designated hitter David Wright and second baseman Daniel Murphy. The SNY telecast of the major league game switched over for each of Wright’s four at-bats. He was held hitless. In addition, Mets pitchers Jon Niese, Matt Harvey and Dillon Gee were slated to work on their hitting in the minor league games.

Fantasy Take: Kyle Lohse Signing

Kyle Lohse finally signed with a team today, and that means he should be off your fantasy team by this weekend.Look, if he's on your waiver wire, you've got to add him. Unless you found a mega sleeper, he's going to be better than your last-round pick. And if you drafted him in a late round, waiting for the day he would sign, that's a smooth move. But I don't...

Cards look to build off last October's near-miss

ST. LOUIS (AP) One more win. After again hitting their stride in October, the St. Louis Cardinals got tantalizingly close to making it back to the World Series.

Adam Wainwright...
