    The Reds will get the big 3 Labor Day weekend

    From the St. Louis beat writers blog


    Rotation Adjusted: The Cardinals will activate Jeff Suppan from the disabled list Sept.1 to start the series finale against the Houston Astros. The move allows rookie lefthander Jaime Garcia to start the Sept. 3 series opener against the Cincinnati Reds followed by Chris Carpenter and Adam Wainwright La Russa formalized* the move on Saturday after watching Garcia throw 5 1/3 scoreless innings in Friday's 4-2 win over the Nationals. He could have chosen to keep Garcia on regular rest, have Carpenter and Wainwright work the first two games, then employ Jake Westbrook in the third game. Garcia, Carpenter and Wainwright started during the Cardinals' three-game sweep of the Reds in Cincinnati Aug. 9-11.

    might as well. if and when we make the playoffs it will be the same senerio no matter the team. not a surprise tony baseball would do this. i hope we can pad our lead by a game or two before we get there friday night so the team can just relax. at this point all you need to do is not be swept. losing 2 of 3 only gets the cards one game. they need the sweep so the pressure will all be on them.
    there's nothing like bowling a 300 game! 13 now and retired.

    The way Houston has been playing, that may not be looking like such a hot decision next week.

    This time the Reds crush them into submission.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Looks like with Volquez going to the pen, Wood is going to be making an earlier start. I'm guessing Cueto will be starting in the St Louis series now (wasnt scheduled to before).

    Cueto vs Priss would be a nice matchup.

    I think I'd almost rather face Garcia than Westbrook

    I'm not sure if Dusty would want to do that to him.. my guess is Cueto will start the Wednesday game against Milwaukee on normal rest. That way we'd have Arroyo - Wood - Homer against St. Louis

    good, because I would much rather Garcia pitch against the Reds than Westbrook. I get really nervous when Westbrook or Lohse pitches.

    I imagine the Reds figured that was gonna happen I doubt it will as easy for them (the Cards) this time around, just a hunch.

    It only made sense for the Cards to do that. The Cards season rides on those three arms anyways. Without those three pitchers, the Cards would probably be burried in the standings.

    I believe Ken Broo was saying yesterday on Sports Talk that someone with the Reds told him they'll make sure Cueto doesn't start in the Cards series.

    Yep, since the Cards last played the Reds they've lost a series to Chicago, Milwaukee, Pittsburgh, and (depending on today) they could lose the series to Washington. If the Cards keep that up and the Reds just avoid a sweep next weekend the Cards won't have much of a chance to win the division.

    Their fans can cling to their record vs the Reds all they want. But, at the end of the season what will matter much more is the final overall record of St Louis and Cincinnati.

    Very good dan.

    There are no more starts to be avoided by the black hole 4/5 spots in the Cards rotation.....so lining 1/2/3 up vs. the Reds just means other teams get more of the other guys....not a big deal in my book.

    If the Reds can win 1 against them....it's a huge victory.

    If the Reds want to be a contender they have to beat guys like them.
