ST. LOUIS (AP) - Stan Musial tributes factor heavily into the St. Louis Cardinals' opening homestand. That means several opportunities to draw on that inspiration. There'll be even more pomp than usual before the Cardinals begin a three-game series Monday against the NL Central champion Cincinnati Reds. Along with the annual motorcade delivering the team and several of its Hall of Famers clad in red jackets at home plate, Stan the Man's four children will unveil an outfield wall marker. "Opening day in St. Louis is a pretty special thing," second baseman Daniel Descalso said. "They do a really good job. Fortunately, this is going to be my third one." A full tribute and harmonica fan giveaway honoring Musial, far and away the best player in franchise history and already honored with two statues outside Busch Stadium, is set for Friday. Several Cardinals past and present attended the funeral in late January for Musial, who died at age 92 after severa...

Boggs takes blame for Opening Day letdown

ST. LOUIS When Mike Matheny pulled Jaime Garcia, the Cardinals manager knew the starting pitcher had done enough to earn a win. "He did a nice job taking us deep," Matheny said. "That's where we wanted to be." Garcia had gone 6 23 innings. He had notched a career-high 10 strikeouts, and surrendered just three runs. The Cardinals led by one, and the team...

In brief: 27 of Reds’ 38 runs all from 6 guys

The Cincinnati Reds International Signings List

I went through the Cincinnati Reds Media Guide and compiled a list of everyone that the Reds signed last year during the international signing period, including guys who signed this year and were listed. I also added Jacob Constante to the list, who must have missed the deadline for the Media Guide as he signed in late January. The list has 26 players on it. Twenty of the signees...

St. Louis Cardinals Home Opening Big Post

The last time we saw the Cardinals at Busch Stadium, we'd rather forget.  A coronation of back-to-back NL champs somehow morphed into the first few bars of Taps and the Birds haven't been back to play at 700 Clark St. until today.
