JUPITER, Fla.— Mike Matheny isn’t the only one who’s ready to get out of Florida and get the regular season started on Monday. The manager said this morning they’re not nearly as ready as previous years - for some unknown reason things went faster this season - but that doesn’t take away from the fact they’re pumped for March 31st.
Players are the same way.
“I can’t imagine how some of the other guys feel but for me I can’t wait,” Kolten Wong said. “It’s been a long time coming and I just want to get out of (Florida) and get to Cincinnati and start getting it going.”
Others agree with Matheny’s assessment on spring training flying by.
“It’s definitely gone fast,” Michael Wacha said. “It feels like just yesterday we were arriving down here in Jupiter but we’re just excited for the season to start and we’re ready to get after it.”
March 31st is just four days away. High expectations await. The Cards are used to them.
