Hoffpauir reporting for spring training


Found this diddy on Jarrett Hoffpauir, one of several Cardinals' organization candidates for second base on the parent club.

The Concordia Sentinel: Sports: Hoffpauir reporting for spring training: "'Obviously I was a little surprised,' Hoffpauir said. 'At first I had two different reactions because I was not sure if they were going to sign anybody or promote someone from the organization. The latest is that they are going to let four or five guys battle for it, which is a good thing. I'm excited about going into spring training and trying not to worry about it too much, just go in and do what I can do.'"
