The St Louis Cardinals’ newest infielder, Julio Lugo is expected to be at tonight’s game in Washington, a one-game makeup versus the usually hapless Nationals.  Knowing Tony LaRussa’s tendency to throw players into the mix early on, we wouldn’t be surprised to see Lugo’s name on the lineup card right away.
