For now, your hometown Redbirds are back at .500 after a near sweep of the Toronto Blue Jays.
Despite being the worst defensive team in baseball, anemic on the base paths, and only having two relief pitchers that seem viable right now (Matt Bowman

Baseball's opening night is near. But what it will bring? Well, I can tell you exactly how it will unfold, for last night I had a vision that was both clear and true. Shall we begin?

On Tuesday, I looked at catch probability to evaluate the St. Louis Cardinals outfield. Using CPR+, I determined that Statcast was significantly lower on the Cardinals outfield than DRS and UZR.
