Good Morning Cardinal Nation. Here’s what I have for you this morning:

Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports has a column discussing Kyle Lohse, among other free agents, who are being affected by the new draft-compensation rule as a result of the new CBA.

— Here’s what Derrick Goold has to say about Kyle Lohse and Lance Berkman, who are still free agents.

— Remember the kid who pointed a laser at Mike Matheny? He was sentenced to six months of probation and a $500 fine.

— Viva El Birdos takes a look at the six players on the HOF ballot who ever put on a Cards’ uniform.

— The Cardinals’ caravan is hitting up 18 different cities in 4 days.

Sergio Romo had an incident at the airport.

— The Cardinals will begin their season on April 1 against the Arizona Diamondbacks at scheduled 9PM CST first pitch, and it will be nationally televised.

THOUGHTS: I’m not worried about Kyle Lohse. At the end of the day, even though he isn’t a fan of how the new CBA is affecting him, you know he is still going to get at least a 3 or 4 year deal somewhere. He will probably get at least $40 million as well. He will be fine….As for the HOF ballot, it’s cool that there are six former Cardinals players on there, but there is very little to no chance that any of them actually get elected.
