Greetings, all. I’m back from vacation. Saw a lot of movies, played a lot of video games, basically did a lot of sitting on my behind. It was splendid.

I’ve got a little news for you, nothing earth-shattering. Timo Perez has been recalled from Memphis, and Brad Thompson has been optioned back out to Memphis. They wanted to get back to 13 hitters and 12 pitchers, but couldn’t recall John Rodriguez because it hasn’t been 10 days since he was sent out. Skip Schumaker is going to play for Team USA, so he wasn’t really an option. So it’s Perez, at least for a few days. I expect Rodriguez will be back very soon.



Timo isn’t too bad, I saw him play against the Rockies at St. Louis earlier this year…I came away impressed.

In the Cards


Hey Matthew! It’s Tim from Chicago (husband of Jen, Erin’s friend from the cult). I had been occassionally checking out your articles on the team. After I noticed you hadn’t written for a while I Googled you and found this blog. Glad you had a great “vacation.” I’m about to have one myself: I quit my job without a definite start date from the new place!! My last day is Friday 8/25.
BTW, I think I’m the only Cubs fan who also subscribes to the Cardinals news.🙂

Talk to you later.
