The Captain Opens Up The Season

In honor of the Cardinals’ 2014 Home Opener today I’m declaring it baseball week here at Captains Quarters!  In years past I’ve gone all out for the Home Opener

 Opening day

This year it’s rained all day and I came home after work and watched the game on my DVR.  Woo!  Still, at least the game is a good one.  Molina came up to the plate with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 1st and hit a double to clear the bases.  It was awesome, and I think it will be like this all year.

I think the Cardinals could win 100 games in the regular season.  There are so many things to like about this team.  The players are a great mix of veterans and young talent.  The starting pitching looks enviable, with 6 good options for 5 slots.  The team finally looks to have a credible center fielder and short stop.  The Cardinals haven’t had a decent one of those since Jimmy & Dave back in 2007.

A lot of sports writers are predicting the Card to make another World Series appearance in 2014.  It has me a little worried.  St. Louis sports teams succeed when they come from behind.  They wear the underdog status better.  High expectations have led to a lot of disappointment in the past.  I think the only thing that could hold the Cardinals back would be a string of injuries.  Still, with such a loaded lineup I like the Cardinals chances to head back to the World Series in 2014.  Can I get a #12in14
