      What to wear to the game later tonight?

      The always-tasteful "51 McGee" jersey or the always-tasteful "5 Pujols"?

      Can't wait for my first chance to see my Cardinals in-person this year!!!

          Cards visit nation's capital

          By Chris Adamski / Special to MLB.com

          The St. Louis Cardinals will play a meaningful game in Washington, D.C., for the first time since 1899 when they face the Washington Nationals at RFK Stadium Friday night.

          The Cardinals played a National League franchise from Washington -- most commonly known as the Senators -- 104 times from 1892-1899, going 46-55-3 in those contests. The Redbirds, however, did play two exhibition games at RFK April 2-3, 1999, ironically, against the Montreal Expos. The Expos moved to Washington to become the Nationals after last season.

          Jeff Suppan will take the mound for the Cardinals in the opener of the three-game set. He has not allowed more than four earned runs in a game since June 19 at Tampa Bay. He is 7-3 since that day.

          The Nationals counter with right-hander Esteban Loaiza. Loaiza has not allowed more than four earned runs in a game himself since June 13.

          Pitching matchup
          STL: RHP Jeff Suppan
          • 12-9, 3.94 ERA in 2005
          • 0-0, 5.40 ERA vs. MON in 2004

          WAS: RHP Esteban Loaiza
          • 8-9, 3.66 ERA in 2005
          • Has not faced STL in 2004 or '05

          Player to watch
          Catcher Yadier Molina is 2-for-2 with a home run against Loaiza.

          Quotable
          "Your career [wins ranking] doesn't really mean that much. What's [friend and former Major League manager] Jim Leyland's career [ranking]? So you think because Jim Leyland has 1,000 wins and I have 2,000, that means I'm twice as good as him? There's no chance. This is not a personal record. I've just been lucky to be with winning organizations." -- Tony La Russa, who moved past Sparky Anderson into third place on the all-time managerial wins list with his 2,195th victory on Thursday

          But wait. There is something that can be done afterall. My good friend Angelo is a cop in the Tampa/Clearwater area. Since I kept all of the files from the access logs when I had the power to see them, guess what, I have everyone's IP addresses. Hmm..what can I do w/ those??

            Not to dis AP, but I'm sure there will be others with that jersey on. Go with the McGee and let them know you're a true Cardinal fan.

                  Sup needs to get it done for us tonight.

                  With Mulder in broad daylight vs an unknown, soft-tossing, rookie lefty, we are in serious trouble tomorrow. And we know who follows on Sunday.....

                      Stuff to know about Washington:

                      RFK is an extreme pitcher’s park that pretty much eats power-hitters alive. Witness, for example, the season of Jose Guillen (.300 with 23 homers overall/.266 with 3 homers at RFK).

                      While Guillen is a severe example, most hitters fare poorly here. In the first 59 games at RFK, the Nats are scoring 3.75 rpg. and hitting .244 with 35 homers and their opponents are scoring just 3.45 and hitting just .247 with 36 homers.

                      Nats are 14-25 since the All-Star break in spite of a 3.43 team ERA. Chad Cordero’s ERA is 0.54 in the second half. The offense is batting just .239 and scoring just 3.69 runs since the break.

                      In addition to his offensive struggles, Vinny Castilla has been less than stellar in the field. He is averaging only 1.56 assists-per-game at third base – the lowest figure in the league.

                      Christian Guzman – who I assume was brought in to be a top of the order catalyst – has scored just 28 runs this year. He has driven in just 19 while hitting just .195 in 353 at bats.

                      And when you need the big strikeout, the Nats have a few willing candidates in Brad Wilkerson (125 in 439 at bats) and Preston Wilson (38 in 128 ABs for Washington; 116 in 399 overall). Alas, Junior Spivey is on the DL and not around to add to the whiffdom. He has 26 Ks in 77 ABs for Wash; and 83 in 259 overall.

                          Is it just me, or would anyone else just love to see Taguchi give an umpire the finger and get thrown out of a game?
