Click here to Watch San Diego Padres v St Louis Cardinals Live Thursday 31st March 20:15 - 23:15 GMT
Every game in the MLB seems to be exciting and thrilling, but there are certain matchups that get just a bit more attention and hype. One of those games happens to be the San Diego Padres vs. St. Louis Cardinals live game that will be featured right here on WatchLiveBaseball.com on March 31st. Watch these two teams battle it out to get started for the season on the right foot, and you certainly wont regret it.
There was a lot of hope in the offseason and leading into the 2011 regular season for the St. Louis Cardinals but a lot of that excitement has dwindled thanks to some injuries. Chris Carpenter is dealing with shoulder issues and the team really needs everyone to step up and fill out for the season if they want to compete in their incredibly tough division. They have the offensive potency to keep up but they will need Carpenter to lead the team, especially considering that it looks like Adam Wainwright will be out for the entire season.
The Padres are a different story as they are not so much expected to compete and contend for a division title, but they do have the type of makeup that could surprise a lot of people this year. Tim Stauffer stole the opening day start from the rest of the team as he was by far the best pitcher in all of Spring Training for the team, but after that there are a lot of concerns about the rotation. The Padres really need to have the kind of season where everything comes together if they are going to compete. If anyone falls off or injuries take their toll, it could be a long year in San Diego.
