Ok, so I’m only partially kidding about the last part, but from various sources on Twitter today:
Lineup skip lud pujols holliday ras molina freese CARP ryan-not a typo!!!
It’s retro nite at Busch. Miles signed and pitcher batting eighth. No joke. #stlcards
Chris Carpenter will hit eighth tonight in what is bound to be a short return to the “offense-goosing” pitcher-hits-eighth gambit.
Any questions about this tactic? Read our site manifesto of sorts here.
Thanks Tony. *slips a crisp twenty to the manager*
