Cardinals earn a gritty win

April 22, 2008

great game yesterday; it was what one would expect from two young teams with potentially great players, I’m more so talking about the brewers at this point but the cardinals are not far behind.

it did not look like it was going to be a pitching duel until the 4th or fifth inning because the runs for both team really came pretty early in the game. waino did not have his best stuff, but he battled and kept the cards in the game all day; that’s what an ace can do.

glaus missed a homer by like 5 inches in the first yesterday, man I really wanted him to get that homer and get the monkey off of his back for this season.

the kid with the dreads, barton, came through again last night. he has fit nicely into the outfield and seemed to have embraced the pinchhitting role tony has molded for him. he doubled to lead off the ninth and set up the scoring of the forth and winning run. skip . izzy closed the game. so, cards win a tough one, 4 to 3.

it appears that mulder is on a different schedule for recovery than we all thought. the general thought was that mulder gets 4 to 5 minor league starts and if all goes will he comes back to the majors. tlr says that muldoo needs to stay down there for the full 30 days of rehab and get about 10 starts before facing major league hitters.

I have to side with tony on this one. I don’t really want to get my hopes up. mulder needs to get as much work as possible before coming back to the big show. if that means the full rehab time, then so be it. besides, once he is up, he can’t go back down. he will be stuck, so might as well use all options available before activating him from the dl.

today’s game will be at 12:05 central time; the second of a two game series, lohse vs. parra.

let’s go cards!

    I think it’s a very good thing that they aren’t rushing Mulder. Right now, the pitching staff is doing well, so you’d hate to tinker with it unless you are sure you are making it better. And it gives more time for Mo to pull off some sort of trade.
