john mozeliac is not allowed to call him "dunc"

It so figures that Skip Schumaker would go for extra bases with his first hit of the season. Good to see him "get that monkey off his back," though, to quote Al Hrabosky. 

Apparently Piñeiro is starting for Memphis tonight. I'm anxious to see him back on the mound for the Cards. Unfortunately, this is probably going to come at the cost of Brad Thompson's starter status, and will mean we're in for some serious bullpen shuffling. 

Dan and Al have decided, without consulting me, I might add, that John Mozeliak is good luck to the team when he visits the broadcast booth to remind us all just how little the front office guys actually know about baseball. I have nothing against the GM personally, I just miss Walt and have no one else to take it out on but the man who took his job. Can you blame me? 

Anyway, if he is good luck, then why did Ankiel slide face-first into an out at the plate instead of keeping his butt at third base? So I have my doubts as to John's luckiness, and I resent him referring to Dunc as "Dunc." Go back to your desk, Moze

They're getting another pitcher up in the 'pen, so I guess Reyes' night is over. 

Whew, what a spot! 3 innings of exceptional work. I love watching him pitch. 

If you think about it, he's always been the bad-luck pitcher for the Cards. 

Pitching a no-no through the 9th against the White Sox, just to have the ONLY hit of the entire game be a solo home run, and we couldn't score at all. 

And last year to have a game called for rain when we're down 2-0 to the Mets with no chance at a comeback, just a loss after 5. 

Not that every loss has been due to exigent circumstances, but you have to admit that if something like that is going to happen, it's probably going to happen to Anthony. 

Glaus is sowly gaining my favor. Another double tonight, this one driving in 2 runs to put us back in the lead, and I'm thinking of getting a #8 jersey. Seriously. Plus the fact that his defense is picking up. I think maybe the Toronto turf was his biggest problem. Somebody slap me.
