ST. LOUIS - Left-handed reliever J.C. Romero had plenty of reasons to be excited when he appeared at the Cardinals' Winter Warm-Up charity event Sunday morning.
In addition to making his first public appearance since he signed a one-year deal to join the Cardinals bullpen, Romero spoke at length for the first time since the announcement that his PED lawsuit had been settled.
That news comes almost three years after Romero filed suit against the makers and distributors of a supplement he claimed caused his 2008 positive drug test. That positive resulted in a 50-game suspension, which Romero served to start the 2009 season.
"My job was to fight to the end and clear my name, and I think that for me that was the most important thing," Romero said. "And I achieved that, and I'm happy with it. . . .

ST. LOUIS Adam Wainwright doesn't figure to tease new teammate Carlos Beltran any time soon about the curveball he looked at for strike three that sent the Cardinals to the World Series in 2006 over Beltran's Mets.
"I may let him bring that up first," Wainwright joked. "I'm sure later on down the road when we get real comfortable with each other, I might...
No St. Louis Cardinals player can be happier to have Carlos Beltran on their side than pitcher Kyle Lohse.
The new right fielder is a .564 career hitter against Lohse with four home runs, six doubles and 12 RBIs. Add in 11 walks and the switch-hitting Beltran has a stunning .647 on-base percentage.
Lohse, a 14-game winner last year, joked at the team's Winter Warmup that Beltran...
The Cardinals reached the pinnacle in winning the World Series in 2011. That was followed up by the sobering reality that Albert Pujols would no longer be donning their uniform after signing with the Angels. On the bright side, the team has a number of high ceiling players down on the farm.
Cardinals top 5 fantasy prospects
1- Shelby Miller, SP
Miller has been nothing...
Albert Pujols is long gone, and the St. Louis Cardinals seem just fine about defending their World Series title without him. Their fans, too.
General manager John Mozeliak got a favorable reception at the team's annual Winter Warmup this weekend when he revisited the negotiations. Chairman Bill DeWitt is bullish about the moves made with the Pujols money.
Outfielder Matt Holliday...
Arriving at Spring Training without a defined role is familiar territory for Skip Schumaker, whose versatility has left him shuffled around for years.
World Series champion isn't the only title Jason Motte is set to shoulder in 2012. There's this new closer tag now attached to his name, too.

You've heard it a million times: 'Baseball isn't America's pastime anymore!'It's a completely arbitrary sports talk radio topic and it's probably true. The NFL has surpassed about everything as the standard bearer for entertainment in America. But that doesn't mean that baseball isn't as influential as ever.During some recent time in the airport...
