'Blues could end up taking home the cup again,' says KMOX's Ackerman

(KFTK) –  Tom Ackerman says baseball and hockey's comeback really is, "day by day," in their success in returning from Covid-19 shutdowns.

Both the Blues and the Cardinals have received some positive tests for the novel coronavirus, "all of these sports have their own logistical and health and safety and economic issues."

The Blues are in the midst of a quick 2-week training camp before starting a round-robin tournament leading into the Stanley Cup playoffs in Edmonton. 

"I still think the Blues are absolutely a heavyweight contender here and could end up taking home the cup again," says Ackerman. "Adding Vladimir Tarasenko is huge. Can he stay healthy?"
