Not the ideal way to bring in the new park, but its a long season so you can't take too much away from this. Didn't seem like there was any urgency from the players. They would finally get a runner on and the next guy up would just slap the ball and the Cards would get the force at 2nd. The tone was really just set in the first with JJ struggling and the defense faltering a bit out the gate.
I will say I think its dumb that Kearns made the roster over Peterson.
Switched over to the Cubs-Nationals game from the Tigers-Red Sox so I could check out Strasburg, he looks good so far, hasn't thrown a fastball under 95, good curveball, just K'd Byrd on a nasty curve.
