The Paper Trail for March 31
A look at some interesting stories and columns from newspapers around the nation:
--Bernie Miklasz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch writes that it's another special opener for the Cardinals.
--Paul Daugherty of the Cincinnati Enquirer writes that even to the casual fan, baseball is chicken soup.
--Jeff Schultz of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution writes that the Braves are suddenly getting some national love over the Phillies.
--Drew Sharp of the Detroit Free Press writes that Mike Ilitch is as responsible for the Tigers' shortcomings as anyone.
--The Delmarva Daily Times writes that the school bell is about to ring for the Orioles and politely disagrees with the assessment of Steven Goldman, our dear editor-in-chief, that Matt Wieters is a bust.
--Yours truly writes in the Beaver County Times that the Fab Four of Andrew McCutchen, Pedro Alvarez, Jose Tabata and Neil Walker give the Pirates a base to build upon but it would help if they could also pitch.
