    My fiancee and I drove down for the Saturday game from Illinois. We have one of the Spring ticket packages. It was really cool to see Brett Wallace in the lineup. Boy oh boy….can that boy rake the ball. He didn’t get many chances in the field Saturday….but looked good on the few he did get. How about a little seasoning with the Redbirds and then a July call-up? The Big Birds could sure use his bat right now.

    P.J. looked good too Saturday. I think Tony made a bad decision by not allowing Walters to stay in the rotation with the big club. Hopefully he can continue to pitch well in Memphis and get a call-up later down the line. His breaking ball makes guys look really silly at times.
