    Cards:
    Carpenter, 3B
    Wong, 2B
    Butler, DH
    Adams, 1B
    Robinson, CF
    Grichuk, LF
    Piscotty, RF
    Cruz, C
    Kozma, SS

    Wainwright, SP

    Twins:
    Buxton, CF
    Dozier, 2B
    Mauer, DH
    Ramirez, RF
    Plouffe, 3B
    Kubel, LF
    Parmelee, 1B
    Pinto, C
    Escobar, SS

    Nolasco, SP

    Now, go forth and chatter!

    It's of very little consequence in the long run, but with Buxton not hitting i'd just bat him near the bottom when facing MLB pitching from this point forward, this year, next year, whenever. Until he consistently starts raking. Why even take the small risk of a Hicks repeat.

    go Twins!

    It started raining around 12:15, a real nice light rain. About 1 it really poured with alot of wind, thunder and lightning. Last night news said this would hit around 5, so we got it early. And now it's back down to a light rain. With the Cards in town for what's always one of the best draws of the spring, I'd imagine attendance to be around 8000 so they will really try to get this in. At best, right now, I'd say at least 2 hours if it quits completely.

    Apparently it was a sell-out so you're right about attendance.

    Ryan Pressly just tweeted 2 photos. One with "I think we can still play" and a second with water gushing in the dugout saying "OK maybe not."

    Rain extends out into the Gulf so it could be a long time before game starts (if ever).

    My parents and I sat for a while last year, in the rain (we came prepared), before they called it. Might be a while ...

    I figured so... The radar looks like it's going to put a chokehold on Ft. Myers.

    Just sprinkles or light drizzle the last 1 1/2 hours, so they could of played. Called it pretty quick today.

    I remember sitting in the rain last year waiting for the call before the game started; it came after we decided we'd had enough and left. It was pretty weird, though, as the gift shop pulled out boxes of rain ponchos to sell. They were white. And when you looked across the stadium with people wearing these, with pointy white hoods, yeah, looked really eerie.

    I don't know if eerie is the right word here....
