ESPN to televise two Cardinals spring training games

On Wednesday, ESPN announced its slate of eight spring training games to be televised nationally. The St. Louis Cardinals will be well-represented, with two of the eight, including the first telecast.

On Monday, March 11, the Cardinals game at Tampa against the New York Yankees is the initial game to be covered. Jon Sciambi, Doug Glanville and Jayson Stark will provide commentary.

Two weeks later, the Cards will again appear on ESPN. This time, it will be from Port St. Lucie as St. Louis faces the New York Mets on Tuesday, March 26. On the coverage team will be Karl Ravech, Aaron Boone, Rick Sutcliffe and Tim Kurkjian. Both games are 1 P.M. Eastern time starts.

    “The Dodgers, Blue Jays, Angels, Tigers, Orioles, Brewers, and Athletics were in Peoria, Arizona today to watch Kip Wells, Mark Lowe, and Ryan Rowland-Smith throw….

    Kip Wells? Really? 7 teams? They are optimists.

    • Nutlaw says:

      Yeah, that smells of desperation.

      • JumboShrimp says:

        The Orioles watched left-hander Arthur Rhodes throw today…. The 43-year-old Rhodes didn’t pitch in 2012……
        The Orioles also recently worked out utilityman Fernando Tatis

        Maybe teams are interested in Mark Lowe, but Kip Wells showed up, to get into the picture. The Dodgers have so much money, they can sign anyone. It would make no sense for the Dodgers to scout Kip. Teams are probably scouting the other guys.

        Good luck to Arthur Rhodes. He helped put Mo over the top in 2011 and make him smartest GM of the year!

    I’m waiting for Westy to comment on the possibility of the Yankees employing a career ending injury strategy to get insurance to cover 85% of the $100M+ still due ARoid. (or did I miss it?)

    I assume Arte is taking notes.
