what, me worry?

I have to admit, I held my breath for the entire half-inning. 

You know what I'm talking about. 

Izzy pitched tonight for the first time since temporarily giving up his role as closer. It wasn't exactly three sit-'em-downs, but we'll take the pop-ups, won't we buddy? It wasn't a save situation either, so there wasn't quite as much pressure, but it was still a close game, and I think a good test for the big guy. 

Oh yeah, and Glaus and Izturis each had a three hit-game, Ankiel took a home run away from LaRoche, Wellemeyer pitched into the eighth only giving up two hits, and the Redbirds stranded FIFTEEN baserunners. 

 ...What? FIFTEEN. 

Is it a coincidence that number F15teen signed with our rivals today?
