    Since the minor league season is scheduled to start May 4th, I figured it’s about time to start this new thread.

    I’ll be seeing some games in Springfield early in the year. I’ll have the 1 1/2yr old and the pregnant wife along so the reports will not be very detailed.

    In regards to Brian’s article about RDCS only allowing fans Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Will the parents of the players be allowed to enter the stadium to see their son’s first professional game? I think the first week should be open to public, then change it to the three days as reported. My two cents.

    If exceptions will be granted, I am not aware of them. A tough call.

    Correction. I asked an official who said yes, family members will be allowed.

    Brian, When do our minor league teams release their 2021 rosters? I think there may be some surprise selections. Looking forward to some great minor league action!

    It is quite ridiculous that Palm Beach has no streaming available. As the Cardinals affiliate, I don’t see a huge cost. And if they wanted to boost attendance, this could only help, Shame on you, Palm Beach cardinals, get in the 21st century.

    What is Angel Rondon’s status? I do not see him listed as a starter by their manager. To the bullpen? That seems a waste. And will Flores’ Memphis start be pushed back since he pitched tonight?

    Also not listed as a starter was Logan Gragg, who looked good way back in 2019.

    They mentioned this on the telecast last night so I had to look it up. Nice play by Gorman.

    Flores is no longer listed as Memphis’ Friday starter. It is TBA. Might be an opportunity for Rondon…

    Given that this is the start of minor league season, the order of which starting pitcher starts in games 1,2,3 etc. seems odd, and not reflected on prospect status. Parsons and Robles for example, although Robles acquitted himself nicely for that decision.

    C27, my speculation as noted on the site is that Oviedo was lined up to start Memphis’ opener, but when St. Louis made the decision to recall him, they plugged in Parsons instead. It may also depend on their throwing schedule at the alternate site. All guessing…
