Saturday tidbits: Holliday and more

Greetings from another beautiful night by the Bay, though it’s shaping up to be a bit chilly.

* As noted in an earlier post, Matt Holliday said this afternoon that he’s available to pinch-hit tonight and expects to play tomorrow. A little earlier in the afternoon, TLR referred to it more as a 50-50 proposition, but that was before Holliday’s workout. I fully expect him to be in there.

* Ryan Theriot is sitting in part because TLR wanted to get Tyler Greene two games in a row, and partly because Theriot is 3-for-20 against Matt Cain.

* Most of the bullpen is available tonight. Miguel Batista, Jason Motte, Trever Miller and Ryan Franklin are all available. Mitchell Boggs and Brian Tallet are maybes. Augenstein is off limits.

* I was told that Lastings Milledge, recently designated for assignment by the White Sox, doesn’t have much appeal to the Cardinals. He is a right-handed hitting outfielder, but he’s not really a center fielder.

And, finally, the playlist. More Bay Area goodness.
Faith No More, “Midlife Crisis”
Metallica, “Damage, Inc.”
Rancid, “Old Friend”
The Donnas, “Hot Pants”
Green Day, “When I Come Around”

Great playlist tonight. Go get ‘em Cards.

Too bad cards and especially Ryan Franklin blew it again tonight despite the awesome music. We have no offense to be sure, but just look at what the Indians are doing with Chris perez as their closer and think…was half a year of an injured mark derosa worth it?
