Hall of Very Good:
In a shocking twist..."American Idol" cut people who already thought they were safe!
Apparently. I don't really know to be honest.
What I do know is this...former St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Joe Magrane's daughter Shannon is safe and on to whatever the next round is.
Remember last month during the auditions when judge, Aerosmith frntoman Steven Tyler told the lefty that his daughter Shannon was "hot, humid and happening"? Well, more disturbing might be how she's described over at Idol's homepage.
She's a teen with a size 11 shoe! Meet Shannon Magrane, who has a funny story about her baseball playing father.
Really? That's the best way to describe the 16-year-old wannabe singing sensation?
And in case you were wondering, no, this isn't the first time the spawn of a former Major Leaguer has made it on to the show. Heck, it isn't even the first time a family member from one of the 1987 National League Champion Cardinals has made the show.
During Season Four, Niko Smith, son of Hall of Famer Ozzie Smith, made the cut and sang his way to ninth place and a recording deal.

Though he won't be leading the Cardinals through their spring workouts for the first time in 17 years, former manager Tony La Russa is not going to be entirely absent from the Spring Training scene.

Last year Matt Holliday was on pace for another Holliday-esque season, but a variety of injuries limited him to just 124 games. While the counting stats weren’t what we are used to, he actually posted a four-year high in ISO (.229) at 31 years old. While his power will start decreasing at some point, Holliday is as consistent as they come and will provide you with very good numbers...
ST. LOUIS, Mo. The St. Louis Cardinals today announced their television schedule for the 2012 season.
FOX Sports Midwest (19th season) is scheduled to carry 150 games in its second full season as the exclusive local TV home of the Cardinals.

New St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny inherits a ballclub that enters the 2012 season as the defending World Series Champions. But he also inherits a ballclub that is very different than the ones from years past. Former manager Tony La Russa, first baseman Albert Pujols, and pitching coach Dave Duncan are all gone for one reason or another. Matheny, in his rookie season...
The Cardinals have indicated that Chris Carpenter will play a large role in determining his spring workload, given that he is coming off a year in which he threw 237 1/3 regular-season innings and then another 36 in the postseason.
For any sporting event, watching and listening to the familiar home broadcasters is usually preferred. Yet in the case of spring training, a time when game coverage is less than 100 percent, catching any broadcast is better than the alternative, isn’t it?
To that end, I have compiled a master list of all St. Louis Cardinals spring television and radio plans no matter who will be...
