The first trip, this year, to Busch Stadium for Ben Frederickson today and we visit about it this morning. What will it be like for journalists as summer camp begins? Do they have player access and can they do interviews?
Ben also tells us today about his take on the rotation and what Mike Shildt has said about using six verses five. Will we see Carlos Martinez as a closer or a starter?
