I hope we can win today, not that we HAVE to, but it would be huge because tomorrow we have Harang going up against Jiminez. You don't want to get into a situation of starting to lose possibly 3 of 4 in the middle of this road trip. This is the last game with STL, then after this 4 at Colorado and 3 at San Diego are our ONLY games against teams with winning records.

i've got a good feeling about today. i think our 3 run first inning took all the wind out of the sails of the cards yesterday and i think it will carry over to today.. if we beat the cards today it will be time to shift our focus to Phillies, Padres and Braves and think about getting the best record.

Today is a game that all of us should be able to enjoy. The pressure is off after yesterday. The only thing any of us should be afraid of today is an injury or suspension. Nothing else can hurt us.

A win would be fantastic... but I think we can all agree that it is not critical.

As far as lesser goals, I would like to see Homer pitch into the 7th.

Anyone else have any lesser goals to add?

BTW, I have heard nothing new about Bruce.

The Cardinals are a non threat. The Reds are by far a better team. The Cardinals may have a few better players but a couple good players doesn't make a team.

As long as LaRussa insists on playing Miles and Savinoia over Schumaker and Rasmus because "That pitcher is tough on lefties"...this team is going nowhere.

I wish he would stop playing the numbers and put the best team on the field.

Congrats on winning the central guys. You are very well deserved.

Ditto. As much as we're focused on this series, the next one is going to be tough. Hopefully, Bruce is back in the lineup and maybe Heisey can either get an off day or jump over to left field to spot Gomes.

09-05-2010, 04:03 PM
Rolen is a big guy. Him standing next to Pujols and he didn't look like he was giving up any size.

No doubt about it. We just needed to win at least one in this series, and we got it out of the way already. Now every bit of the pressure is on STL. They have to be nearly perfect the rest of the season and that's not going to happen.

Very efficient first three innings by Bailey. Hopefully we'll get him some runs here. :thumbup:

My dream today would be for a Cardinal player to make a very costly error in the field leading to several runs that ultimately lose it for the Cardinals.

But the icing on the cake would be Carpenter getting into a dugout argument/fight with that player that pretty much blows their team chemistry.

Carpenter is so going to let his team have it in the dug out. I'm betting he surpasses Zambrano's little tirade.

I think the only difference would have been only 1 run scores... no way he would have beaten OCab to 1st and there were no other forces.

77. We made him throw 22 that inning. Good work with that and obviously scoring those runs.

If we can make him work a little more, we'll have him out of this game after seven innings today.

The Cards only scored because Carpenter went into the dugout and yelled, "you better score or else!"
