Matt Holliday is back in the 4 spot, and Nick Punto is back at second base. Otherwise this lineup should look pretty familiar.


1. Furcal SS
2. Jay CF
3. Pujols 1B
4. Holliday LF
5. Berkman RF
6. Molina C
7. Freese 3B
8. Punto 2B
9. Jackson P

1. Hart RF
2. Morgan CF
3. Braun LF
4. Fielder 1B
5. Weeks 2B
6. Jairston 3B
7. Betancourt SS
8. Lucroy C
9. Marcum P



So far we scored 4 runs in the first and gameday gives us ONE Cardinals video highlight. they score 2 in the 2nd and 1 in the third and gameday gives us two Brwers highlights. What a bunch of a-holes. My uncle has guys who died face-down in the muck!

FANS??? Where’s the spirit? The team is out there playing for all they’re worth and the music/fans spirit is no where near what the Milwaukee fans did! Lived in St. Louis 20 yr. and went to Cardinal season and post season games. Fans in post season were on their feet and they didn’t wait until the 9th inning! Last nights game when the camera panned the audience they’re sitting there, placid, docile, and wearing red but other than that? The organ music which was a huge factor at the old Busch Stadium didn’t even kick in till after 3rd inning or later, or maybe you just couldn’t hear it? The Colorado Rockies have better organ music that makes fans want to cheer and clap and act like they care! The wild card team St. Louis Cardinals are playing/pitching fantastically!!! GO CARDINALS!

Just to let you know that Cardinal fans live everywhere. I have to get up every night at 2 am to watch the game. I live in the Netherlands and since we play the final of the World Championship I can sincerely say we know baseball.

Cards rule!

Props to Tony for his game yesterday. I was glad to see him have the quick hook with Garcia. That’s out of the norm for him, and I’m really happy to see him change his habits in playoff baseball. I also really liked the bunt with the 8 hitter even though Garcia was next. He eliminated the possibility of a DP that would have most likely led to runner at 3rd, two out, and Garcia up. Instead he broke with the norm and bunted, allowing for TWO oppurtunities with runners on 12nd and 3rd. The error was helpful, but even if Hairston makes the play on the ball he has to make a good throw to get an out. And if he makes both plays, we still had one more shot with runners on and Furcal up. Kudos, Tony. Good moves all around. I like to see Tony go with his gut more often and not just stick with match-ups and percentages.

Slam dunkin like Shaqlilue O’Neal, if he wrote informative articles.
