Cards bullpen a strength for team

HANNIBAL | The St. Louis Cardinals had one of the best bullpens in the major leagues last season, a big reason why they made the postseason.
Two of the key contributors of last year's bullpen were on hand at the Cardinals Caravan at Hannibal-LaGrange University on Saturday, John Brebbia and John Gant.
“I spend the offseason in Georgia and I'm sick and tired of seeing Braves jerseys,” Brebbia said. “It's refreshing to come out here and see some Cardinals jerseys. It's nice.”
