urrea.jpgThe June stats posted on the MLBlogosphere show Cardinal Girl at #38 among the fan blogs. Thanks, readers!  In May, I was #45 so I’m on the rise. Now if I would just write haiku more than once per month, who knows where I might be?  

I had a hard time finding a Cardinal with #38.  Jose Cruz wore #38 for the Cards, but I couldn’t find a pic of him that showed it. So here is John Urrea who I was not familiar with.

the scoring done tonight, since
I’ll be at next two.
