Cardinals Winter Warm-Up Series: The Rotation

New series with player comments from the St. Louis Cardinals Winter Warm-Up begins with the five starting pitchers.

I have heard from many readers over the years that prefer to hear St. Louis Cardinals newsmakers in their own words rather than via sportswriters' selected sound bites. To that end, I am starting a new six-part series in which audio of groups of players speaking to the media during this month's Winter Warm-Up are provided in their entirety.

This first installment includes the five members of the projected 2011 starting rotation.

Chris Carpenter: (14:24)

Adam Wainwright: (9:13)

Jake Westbrook: (8:16)

Kyle Lohse: (9:42)
