Oh, it's so on.
The World Champion St. Louis Cardinals radio schedule begins with the name changing Miami Marlins on Monday, March 5, as the Cardinals face the formerly named Florida Marlins.
Aside from the Marlins changing names from the Florida Marlins to the Miami Marlins, Miami's super slugger Mike Stanton has requested to be called Giancarlo this season. Sprinkle in the fact Albert Pujols is no longer a Cardinal and you have the most interesting spring training radio broadcast of the week on Monday.
Cardinals press release:
As the St. Louis Cardinals begin the 2012 Spring Training schedule, fans will be able to catch all the warm-weather action from veteran broadcasters Mike Shannon and John Rooney on the team’s flagship station KMOX (AM 1120) and the Cardinals Radio Network.
The first of sixteen broadcasts will begin next Monday, March 5, as the Cardinals face the Miami Marlins. Beginning Saturday, March 10th, every Saturday and Sunday broadcast will feature the Cardinals Pre-Game Show.
