(Baseball StL)-- Cardinals pitchers and catchers wrapped up their physicals early this morning. They'll hit the field for the team's first official workout of the spring at 10:30a.m. St. Louis time. Mike Matheny has been busy this morning conducting a coaches meeting, and then a clubhouse meeting with all the players.
Matheny's schedule for the day, listing every player and his moment by moment activities , looks very similar to the Tony La Russa schedules with one exception.
Matheny says he's a guy who loves quotes, and at the bottom of today's schedule was this quote from George W. Bush: "From now on any definition of a successful life has to include serving others." Matheny says he'll have a different quote on his schedule every day.
