Good Morning Cardinal Nation,

Here’s what I have for you this morning:

— The Cardinals, along with every other Major League team, have revealed some new batting practice caps.

I think those are pretty fresh. Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a big navy blue guy. Pretty excited to get one of my own.

—  Adam LaRoche is reportedly close to signing with the Boston Red Sox, and A.J. Pierzynski signed a one-year deal with the Texas Rangers.

Andruw Jones was arrested on Christmas morning, while Ugueth Urbina was released from jail for attempted murder.

— Viva El Birdos has a few things to recall from 2012.

— Lastly, Hunter Pence has a small tribute for Ozzie Smith, who turned 56 yesterday.

Nice moves, Hunter.
