Go Cards! I’ve read that Pujols *will* be in the lineup today.

Writing about the Cardinals and other loosely associated topics since 2008, I've grown tired of the April run-out only to disappoint Cardinal fans everywhere by mid-May. I do not believe in surrendering free outs.

grrr – Rockies’ announcers again – these guys suck

PHE May 8, 2008

I wish Albert would’ve taken Tony’s offer for a day off.

It’s clear he’s swinging at pitches he normally wouldn’t in an effort to keep them from pitching around him.

Lohse needs to keep the ball down at Coors…

PHE May 8, 2008

That’s why Glaus stays in the lineup at third base.

PHE May 8, 2008

Ryan Spilborghs looks like White Goodman.

PHE May 8, 2008

Thanks Brendan Ryan.

PHE May 8, 2008

Ludwick again – unreal.

PHE May 8, 2008

Welp, still some weak swings – but Ludwick stays hot. Always easier to get MORE runs than START scoring, IMO.

Just keep chipping away…

PHE May 8, 2008

Excellent work by Lohse to calm down and get three outs.

If we can get another run here, this is just another game.

PHE May 8, 2008

hrmmm – hitters all of a sudden seem very impatient – getting out of their season-long agenda to get on-base trying to make up these runs quickly it seems

PHE May 8, 2008

Lohse getting killed by his defense today.

PHE May 8, 2008

Well, his defense and walks when he was up 0-2 on the hitter. grrr

PHE May 8, 2008

Lohse gets them out of the jam relatively unharmed. Time for the bats to pick up.

PHE May 8, 2008

Pujols needs to take a walk. His plate appearances are starting to get frustrating.

PHE May 8, 2008

time to get someone up in the ‘pen, Tony

PHE May 8, 2008

Five walks so far for Lohse. Bases loaded. None out.

And there it goes…

Warning track power. Lucky.

PHE May 8, 2008

Ugh – 2 more runs, and it’s looking like Russ Springer is coming in.

This could get much, much worse before it gets better.

PHE May 8, 2008

Strike zone seems WILDLY inconsistent today.

PHE May 8, 2008

*shakes head* Izturis swinging at a pitch out of the zone after 6 straight balls from De La Rosa. I don’t think Iz2′s .350 OBP is going to last.

PHE May 8, 2008

Cards seem to be a little more patient here in the 6th – one run in, need some more 2 out hits.

PHE May 8, 2008

I think the Cardinals just conceded. Chris Duncan in at 1B.

PHE May 8, 2008

New pitcher – another first pitch swing. *sigh*

PHE May 8, 2008

Ok, Ludwick is insane right now.

PHE May 8, 2008

If the coach’s son is back in LF tomorrow against the Brewers, I will be upset.

PHE May 8, 2008

Welp, a split in that series is a downer – should’ve taken at least 3 – and you could argue today’s outcome may have been different if not for last night.
