    Cards/Astros

    Just got back from the game, and let me tell you, it sure felt good to see Troy Glaus hit his first dinger as a redbird. It may have taken 26 games, but that was a towering 417' shot to straight away center. Not to be outdone, Pujols hit a 423' shot also to straight away center. With that, we're now sitting .5 games back in the NL Central. Not a bad showing from a team everyone seemed to think was a bottom-dweller this year.

    Man, I can't wait for Friday's Cubs/Cards game. I'll be sitting in section 356 cheering 'til my throat is hoarse.

    Same here, go CUBS!


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Good luck with that...since the Cubs haven't squashed anybody in 100 years

    I've said it before, but I honestly think dealing Kip Wells to Colorado was the best off-season move the Cards could possibly have made. Shipping off a 17 loss pitcher will do wonders for your rotation.

    Yeah, that's why he's pitching great for Colorado.

    Great that the Cards get to be the first to bring the Cubbies back to reality.

    lol, I don't think I am really gonna take a serious re-look at my opinion of him just because of how he has done without even pitching 20 innings yet this year.

    Kip Wells career stats...not great.

    W -L ERA
    65-92 4.59

    I would take that ERA every day of the week when pitching for a team that scores runs like Colorado is capable of.

    I don't think anybody expected that? Yeah they were down last year, but they're always are contenders.

    I can think of several threads on CF alone stating as much. Hell, practically any thread I post in regarding either the Cards or Cubs has at least one such post.

    Waaaayy too many games left to start talking trash - the cubs & Brewers are still the favorites but StL has come out much stronger than anyone could have anticipated. Go Cards and lets keep it clean!
