Sports on a Sunday Morning: Rick Hummel, Rams’ OTAs, Golf & John Mozeliak
The Cardinals, who have seven of their last nine, have certainly hit the roughest stretch of the still young 2012 season. To breakdown some issues, Ron welcomed Hall of Fame writer Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch to the show.
What’s going on with professional golf? While the appeal of big names, including 2012 Masters winner Bubba Watson, is not jumping out at fans right now, things will hopefully pick up soon as the other majors approach. KMOX Golf Editor Dan Reardon joined Ron also telling him that local courses are looking the best in years.
Things sure are different at the Rams training facility in what one former head coach would consistently call ‘beautiful Earth City’. Now under the Jeff Fisher regime, the rookies and veterans are learning to play with the each other. Our Rams insider Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch has been out there for all of it and let’s Ron know what he’s seen.
Cardinals’ GM John Mozeliak has been busy shuffling players from AAA to the MLB as the defending World Series champions have quickly been bit hard by the ‘injury bug’. Along with an update on Lance Berkman and others, Mo’ also talks with Ron about the struggling big league club that looks to salvage what’s been a 1-3 road trip on the Pacific Coast.
