Cardinals' Spring Training: Competition for starting rotation expected to be fierce as workouts beginThursday, 13 February 2014 02:35 Published in Sports
Cardinal's spring training camp officially gets busy Thursday with the first official workouts. Pitchers and catchers reported to Jupiter, Florida the day before.
Cardinals' Manager Mike Matheny says the talent pool of young pitchers this year is amazing. "Some of the guys we have as leaders in the group don't have a whole lot of experience, but that's just kind of the club we have," he said.
Matheny says it's going to be fun watching this group of young, talented pitchers continue to improve and grow. But the bottom line is competition. "We've got some very young guys and very talented guys and they're going to have to step in and compete," he said. "That idea that we're just constantly going to be hounding on them is just competing non-stop. No matter who you are, no matter what you've done, come in here and work in Spring Training like you've got something to prove, which you do."
Eight pitchers with proven major league experience are competing for five starting positions.
A new survey ranking the safety of cities across the country is out, and it's a bit of a mixed bag for the St. Louis area.
According to crime data website Neighborhood Scout, East St. Louis is the most dangerous city in the nation. East St. Louis beat out places like Flint, Michigan and Camden, New Jersey for the dubious distinction. The website says a resident of East St. Louis has a one-in-twenty chance of becoming a victim of a violent crime--compare that to just 1-in-241 for the rest of Illinois.
On a brighter note, Ballwin, Missouri was ranked the ninth safest city in America. The average resident there has a 1-in-almost 1700 chance of being the victim of a violent crime.
