As we anxiously await the Cardinals to start playing spring training games on Monday, here’s something to get you through the weekend — more spring training pictures. Not all of them are necessarily attractive, however, prompting me to wonder why the St. Louis Post-Dispatch photographer actually thought posting some of these online was a good idea.
The worst are first, with better ones further down and perhaps the most adorable picture from spring training 2012 last. (Apologies to our male readers, or at least my Uncle Jim, for using the word “adorable” in a post. Although he probably stopped reading when he saw the words “more spring training pictures.”)
Once again, all photos from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Oh, LB ...
Is Willie yawning? Yelling? Shocked to see Ozzie in camp?
Pitchers can look really odd just doing their jobs. Example 1: Kyle Lohse
Example 2: Fernando Salas
Hopefully Rzepper never really does this in a game
Rafael Furcal looks like he's in pain (which is something that shouldn't even be joked about. Sorry.)
Enough bad and ugly ... onto some good. And it's definitely good to see Allen Craig working out with the team.
Hopefully this makes up for the other LB picture ...
Hello, Yadi and Tony!
Mike Matheny pictures are always welcome, I know (and hello, Red!)
Finally, the most adorable picture. Yes, even though it doesn't include Mike Matheny or David Freese. (It does include CC, K-Lo, Matt, Skip and LB.)
