  • GDT: Cards @ Reds, 6:10 Central

    QUOTE

    They'd still have to go out and win the games, but if the playoffs come down to a series with the Atlanta Braves, then the St. Louis Cardinals certainly wouldn't mind having home-field advantage.

    The Cardinals need one more victory or one more loss by the Braves to clinch home-field advantage throughout the National League playoffs. St. Louis could clinch Thursday night in the finale of a three-game series against the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ball Park.

    "Nobody's talking about that," shortstop David Eckstein said. "That's the first I've heard of it. We're just playing each game hard."

    Right-hander Matt Morris (14-9) will try to snap the first four-game losing streak of his career and follow up the strong start put together by Jason Marquis in Wednesday's 5-1 Cardinals win. Left-hander Brandon Claussen (10-9) will oppose Morris.

    Outfielder Reggie Sanders is expected to start after getting Wednesday night off as he continues his comeback from the fractured right fibula that cost him 54 games.

    Pitching matchup
    STL: RHP Matt Morris
    • 14-9, 4.10 ERA in 2005
    • 1-0, 2.57 ERA in 2005 vs. CIN

    CIN: LHP Brandon Claussen
    • 10-9, 3.98 ERA in 2005
    • 1-2, 7.04 ERA in 2005 vs. STL

    Player to watch
    Sanders, a former Red who never played a home game at Great American Ball Park, loves the ballpark. He has hit .313 with seven home runs and 23 RBIs in 26 games since the ballpark opened for business in 2003.

    Quotable
    "Eckstein -- what's new. He's been playing so well." -- Cardinals manager Tony La Russa, on Eckstein falling a triple short of the cycle

      I figure this way I'll either get the loss out of the way of be the one to break Morris' streak.
      Win-Win I figure.

            SunuvaNoun, you got bigger balls than I do. I was thinking on my way home from work this morning that this is a job for Pgrote. He's the main man when the chips are on the table with hopeless causes. Good luck, I'm rooting for ya!

            Btw, I hope you noticed "SunuvaNoun", I can't see you having a nun for a mom, sorry. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif[/img]

              Interesting Card fan dilemma here:

              On the one hand, I always want to see the Redbirds win.

              On the other hand, a poor outing by Morris might push him out of the playoff rotation.

              On the other hand, Tony probably will start him anyway, so it would be good to see him pitch well and turn it around.

              On the other hand, Ray King sucks.

                          well, my topic of wonder this morning was how long until someone calls that Ring Fox line and asks if we should keep King off the postseason roster and put Mulder in the pen and then we can have the remaining four in the playoff starting rotation. You know, a problem solved kinda call.
