Yeah, I know…it’s not really reveille when it goes off at 4pm.  Consider this the “sleeping in” version of the Reveille… —– Ryan Ludwick hits the shelf.  Todd Wellemeyer gets creamed.  Lineup still not hitting.  Cards and Pirates are on the verge of combustion during this series via the beanball.

I’m not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, and by each and every measure, Chris Carpenter exceeded my wildest expectations with his start today against the Pirates, even collecting the win after the Cards lineup rallied behind some pinch hitters in the bottom of the seventh inning. But could Carp’s start have [...]
