The trims to the active roster the Cardinals made Thursday afternoon would have been considered revealing had they happened leading up to opening day.

The negotiations did not center so much on a potential start day as the details of salary payment, service time, free agency and player movement in light of a delayed or even canceled season.

This is a significant concession on part of the owners.

Each morning, since this all started, we wake up and everything feels regular. There is the regular morning grogginess, the regular maybe-I-could-sneak-in-10-more-minutes, the regular stretching of stiff limbs, when it then hits us: Oh. Yeah.

Prospect rankings are always interesting. Most of the times, half of any given organization’s Top 10 list will never actually make it to The Show. That’s because the people who write these lists fall in love with young players stashed at the lowest levels of the minors who have loads of potential, but haven’t yet proven anything.

If not for Major League Baseball’s indefinite postponement of the season, the Cardinals’ defense of their National League Central championship would have begun Thursday with the 101st opening day in Cincinnati, complete with the usual parade through downtown and sellout crowd at Great American Ball Park. Instead, ballparks around the country will be empty, quiet enough to hear the ongoing negotiations between the leagues and the players’ union.

The tricky part comes when we throw out Hall of Famer Stan Musial, who played a record 22 seasons with the team but didn’t play for the Cardinals in 1945 when he was in the Navy. And also thrown out is pitcher Adam Wainwright, who has been here since 2005 but didn’t play in 2011 after having Tommy John elbow surgery in spring training.
