Wednesday lineups and one tidbit – UPDATED

The tidbit: The Cardinals announced their weekend rotation for the Reds. It will be Carpenter on Friday (as expected), Garcia on Saturday (as expected) and Lohse on Sunday (as was not entirely certain). TLR had hinted last night that he might bump Edwin Jackson up to pitch the Sunday game against Cincinnati, but instead Jackson will apparently pitch Monday at home, again versus the Brewers.

UPDATED – Scratch that. It will in fact be Jackson on Sunday with Lohse pitching at some point in next week’s home MILWAUKEE series. Not necessarily Monday.

The lineups:

Cardinals
1. Furcal SS
2. Craig CF
3. Pujols 1B
4. Holliday LF
5. Freese 3B

Holliday downplays back ailment

Matt Holliday was a late scratch from Wednesday’s lineup, with Jon Jay moving into the starting nine, but Holliday downplayed the severity of the back discomfort he’s feeling. The Cardinals’ star outfielder “tweaked” a muscle in the area of his left lower back while preparing to lift weights prior to Wednesday’s game against the Brewers.

 

“I don’t know much,” Holliday wrote in a text message shortly before the game. “Just tweaked a muscle on my left side, low-back/glute. Shouldn’t be more than a day or two.”

 

Corey Patterson got the start in right field instead of center, where he was originally slated to play, with Allen Craig moving from right field to left. Jay was added to the lineup in center field.

 

A club source said of the decision to sit Holliday, “We’re just being kind of safe.”

Tuesday tidbits: Freese, Craig, Lohse and more – UPDATED

Greetings from a warm, sunny afternoon at Busch Stadium. Looking forward to a fun series.

* To address the single most-asked question I’ve gotten on Twitter in recent weeks, Allen Craig is at Busch Stadium today. He’s going to go through a good, thorough workout, and it’s possible he’ll be added to the roster tomorrow.

6 pm update: Craig came through his workout with no issues, and TLR made it sound extremely likely that he will in fact be activated tomorrow.

* David Freese is back in the lineup. He said he feels 100 percent normal, and that in fact the last test he really had to pass was on Sunday in Miami when he did some extensive running.

* The rotation for the next several days has been announced. It will be Jake Westbrook tomorrow and Chris Carpenter on Thursday against Milwaukee, pushing Kyle Lohse back to Friday against Colorado. Jaime Garcia will then go on Saturday against the Rockies, with Edwin Jackson getting the last game of the homestand.

* Today is the last day of Yadier Molina’s suspension. He’s slated to return to active duty tomorrow.

* TLR talked some more today about the question of “head games” and whatnot. I won’t try to summarize it here, but I’ll have something on it in my notebook on the site tonight.

And, finally, the playlist is a celebration of “Watch the Throne” and the two gentlemen behind it:

Jay-Z and Kanye West, “No Church in the Wild” (my favorite from “Watch the Throne” after a few listens)
Jay-Z, “The Ruler’s Back”
Kanye West, “Blame Game”
Jay-Z, “December 4″
Kanye West, “Diamonds From Sierra Leone” (the Jay-Z remix, of course)
