  • Cards vs. Marlins GDT, 8/30/05

    att Morris will try to keep the good feelings going for the Cardinals when he takes the mound against the Marlins at Dolphins Stadium on Tuesday night. St. Louis has won three straight games by a combined score of 18-1, and is 6-2 thus far on its season-long 13-game road trip.
    Morris has won back-to-back starts and will be trying to become the third 15-game winner on the Cardinals' staff. It would be the fourth time in the last five years that the right-hander reached that marker. After a bit of a funk right after the All-Star break, Morris has come back strong, allowing four runs in 13 innings over his last two starts.

    Ismael Valdez will take the mound for the home team, trying to keep Florida in the thick of the Wild Card race. Valdez has been more effective in relief than as a starter this year, though he's coming off a nice outing against Milwaukee. The Marlins have dropped three of their four meetings with the Cards this year.

    St. Louis has narrowed its magic number for clinching the National League Central to 17, and holds a commanding 15-game lead over the second-place Astros.

    Pitching matchup:
    STL: RHP Matt Morris
    • 14-5, 3.74 ERA in 2005
    • 1-0, 5.14 ERA vs. FLA in 2005

    FLA: RHP Ismael Valdez
    • 1-1, 4.00 ERA in 2005
    • Has not faced STL in 2004 or 2005

    Player to watch
    Larry Walker has seen a lot of Valdez, and he's liked what he's seen. Walker is 11-for-28 (.393) against the former Dodger with three home runs and four doubles for an .857 slugging percentage.

    Quotable
    "I don't hear anybody talking about who's in first or how far in first we're ahead. I don't hear anybody talking about how many games left before we clinch. I don't hear anybody talking about it. I hear guys talking about continuing to go out every night and play the way we've been playing. I think it was the same way [last year]. Guys don't look at it, and that's the reason why we've been consistent." -- Cardinals ace Chris Carpenter

          Is Walker playing today? I didn't think he did back to backs yet.

              Pretty sure he had his back turned to us.

                    Echo, echo...

                    Cards go quietly top 2nd. Three straight two-out Marlin singles in the bottom of the 2nd make it 1-0, Fish.

                        OK, Matt, "three-run homer" wasn't what we were looking for there.

                        Miguel Cabrera just hit one into the upper deck that Hagin is describing with words like "bomb" and "monster".

                            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??
