The Cardinals have signed old friend Miguel Cairo to a Triple-A contract, and he’ll report to Memphis on Wednesday. Kelly Stinnett is also back in the fold; he played at Memphis yesterday. He’s likely to be called up when rosters expand.
As of this moment, the weather looks OK. The tarp is still out on the field but there doesn’t seem to be much, if anything, falling from the sky. The forecast is still pretty grim; too bad we can’t just start this thing right now. FWIW, the Cards and Cubs both have an off day on Sept. 10, though for both teams it’s in the middle of a multicity road trip.
