Mailbag: Will Colby get a call? | News

Mailbag: Will Colby get a call? News: "Welcome to the newest Cardinals mailbag. As always, if you have a question, use the links above and below to submit it -- and please be sure to include your first name, last initial and hometown. If you send a regular e-mail rather than using the form, be certain to use the word 'mailbag' in the subject header -- otherwise your mail may be directed to the spam folder or possibly be ignored in an unbecoming manner."


... Matthew Leach answers what the subhead calls "burning questions." It's doubtful the questions are burning, unless the computer has caught fire, but this digital Q & A is better than most.

Besides, Leach is one of fun beat reporters re: the Cardinals, and if you read between the lines, there's a sarcastically fun voice dying to punch through the standards of sports reporting, which is why blogging has gained so much favor over the traditional bore that is big newsprint sports writing.

Anyway, the fans questions are all valid in this installment, and you get a chance to learn stuff, mostly about the minor league movements that don't get any of that traditional press, unless of course, the marketers believe it should be squeezed between some advertising in careful column inch doses.
