This DFR is presented by Blake Hawksworth who has inserted himself into the 7th or 8th inning right-hander role with the big club. It is nice to see that Hawksworth is regaining the hype he had as a younger prospect. He’s been wandering for a few years and it’s nice for him to finally find his way.
There’s a lesson for you kids. Doesn’t matter how long it takes you or how many times you get listed in the DFR, if you get called up and stick, that’s what its all about. And that’s all we want here at Future Redbirds, we want the St. Louis Cardinals to win. We also love to see our eggs help out. HPGF 4 Life!
DFR, jump, etc, you know the drill.
Memphis, Colorado Springs is suspended in the 1st because of wet grounds. Whatever that means. Probably means that the ground was wet. But, wasn’t it wet when the game started? Either way, I’ll follow up in the morning to see if this game got going again.
