  • Upcoming Pitching Matchups

    Washington:
    Friday - Suppan v Esteban Loaiza
    Saturday - Mulder v TBA
    Sunday - Marquis v Tonay Armas, Jr. (maybe)

    Florida:
    Monday - Carpenter v AJ Burnett
    Tuesday - Morris v Ismael Valdez
    Wednesday - Suppan v Jason Vargas (L)

    Houston:
    Friday - Mulder v Roger Clemens
    Saturday - Marquis v Wandy Rodriguez (L)
    Sunday - Carpenter v Ezequiel Astacio

    All things considered, it could be worse. Washington's pitching staff is pretty beaten up right now. Saturday would have been Ryan Drese's start, but he just went on the DL and I haven't seen them announce yet who will take his spot. Armas is still slated to go on Sunday, but he left his last start after only three innings with shoulder pain. I don't expect him to make the Sunday start, so we will probably be getting replacement starters in 2 of the 3 against Washington.

    As for the Marlins, Jason Vargas is their version of Zach Duke. The rookie lefty is 4-1 with a 2.43 ERA. As he's a lefty that we've never seen before, I expect some trouble there.

    Houston has days off today and Monday, so they are skipping Wandy Rodriguez twice in the rotation. This will keep Clemens, Oswalt and Pettitte on regular schedule, but it also means that they'll hit the Cardinal series with the backend of their rotation - and Rodriguez pitching for the first time in over a week.

    These are some good pitchers we'll be seeing - but the list of the pitchers we'll miss in these three series is even more impressive: John Patterson, Livan Hernandez, Dontrelle Willis, Josh Beckett, Andy Pettitte and Roy Oswalt.

    Given what it could be, I'll take it.

    Monday - Carpenter v AJ Burnett

    This will be fun.
    The noise was good, but I thought they phoned in a lot of the funk.

        Mulder/Clemens matchup should be fun though.
        If you believe in something sacrifice a hobo to it or don't bother.

          Why aren't we referring to Clemens by his formal name. Mr. 2005 Cy Young Award Winner?

              He pitched 8 1/3 innings last night. We'll just miss him.

                Oh.....I'm sorry, but I think you meant to say Chris Carpenter and typed Clemens by mistake.

                  I'll be at the games on Friday and Saturday here in DC.

                  Anyone else in town for Cardinal Baseball?
