(BaseballStL) -- We are blessed to live in the digital age that ensures every Cardinals game will be televised in St. Louis. The Cardinals announced their TV schedule on Thursday and that includes five spring training games.

A recent interview on KFNS 590 The Fan with Mets television broadcaster and former Cardinal Keith Hernandez got me thinking. Hernandez talked about his approach in giving New York viewers a broadcast skewed toward them. Which do you prefer, the local Cardinals broadcasts with bias and insight specifically for St. Louis or the national broadcast?

Fox Sports Midwest will carry 150 Cardinals games and the five spring training games (March 17, 19, 20, 22, 24) all starting at Noon CT. Dan McLaughlin will do the play-by-play and Al Hrabosky will do the color commentary. The Cardinals say Rick Horton will do play-by-play commentary for approximately 100 games on Fox Sports Midwest.

The rest of the games will be aired on Fox National or ESPN with their national broadcast teams. Let me know which you prefer.
