    I'll be leaving for Phoenix around noon,going to visit some family and a few old friends. I'm not sure where I'll be sitting, as the tickets are at the will call window. Probably near the Cards dugout. I shall do my best to bring home a winner. If not you will read about an old man that goes crazy on some obnoxious D'bags fans. After yesterday, I'm on edge.

    Mick Jagger is in better shape than far too many NBA players. It's up in the air whether the same can be said of Keith Richards.

                    This is starting to smell like the collapse of '07. That one also involved a series with the Diamondbacks.

                      Notebook: Promotions on tap

                      By Joe Strauss
                      ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
                      09/02/2008

                      PHOENIX — The Cardinals will officially promote six players from Class AAA Memphis today after elevating lefthanded reliever Randy Flores on Monday.

                      Today's arrivals will include infielder Brian Barden, who starred for Team USA's bronze medal entry at last month's Olympics.

                      Also being promoted are infielder Brendan Ryan, righthanded relievers Kelvin Jimenez, Jason Motte and Josh Kinney, and non-roster catcher Mark Johnson.

                      The moves will not become official until today as the Cardinals must subtract three players from their 40-man roster to accommodate Barden, Kinney and Johnson. 27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000 name=ebReportingFlash>

























                      27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000 name=ebRichFlash_0_9765948733826923>




























                      Though already on the major-league roster, Kinney has not counted against the limit while listed on the 60-day disabled list. Kinney last threw a major-league pitch in the 2006 World Series. He required right elbow ligament replacement surgery in March 2007 and suffered a fractured arm last summer before experiencing additional complications this year.

                      Barden hit .265 with four extra-base hits, including a home run, and five RBIs during Team USA's eight games.

                      Barden, Memphis' regular shortstop, batted .285 with nine home runs and 35 RBIs for the Redbirds. Johnson, who split time with top prospect Bryan Anderson, batted .258 in 198 at-bats. Johnson has more than four years' major league service with the Chicago White Sox, Oakland A's and Milwaukee Brewers.

                      Anderson, 21, need not be protected on the 40-man roster this winter, so the Cardinals chose not to sacrifice the roster spot.

                      CARPENTER ACTIVATED

                      The Cardinals activated Chris Carpenter from the disabled list Monday and assigned him to relief work, a role he has not experienced since 2000 with the Toronto Blue Jays.

                      Carpenter, who left the game Aug. 10 against the Chicago Cubs with muscle pain near his right shoulder, will initially be confined to one-inning appearances, according to manager Tony La Russa. "We'll let him go out there for a couple appearances. We'll try to keep him out of one-run games," La Russa said. "You let him get some work and see how he feels. If he feels great, I wouldn't hesitate to use him anytime."

                      MATHER EXITS

                      Outfielder Joe Mather will be examined by a local hand specialist today after leaving Monday's fourth inning with what initially was called a left wrist sprain.

                      Mather injured the hand trying to check his swing during a third-inning at-bat against Arizona Diamondbacks lefthander Randy Johnson. Mather felt pain but stayed with the at-bat, striking out on the next pitch. La Russa replaced him with Skip Schumaker in the bottom of the fourth inning.

                      INSTANT OFFENSE

                      Yadier Molina's second-inning home run left him 18 for 46 during a 12-game hitting streak. The burst has lifted his overall average to .310, allowing him to join teammates Albert Pujols (.363) and Skip Schumaker (.308) in the league's top 10.

                      Pujols raised his own record to eight consecutive seasons of at least 30 home runs to start a career. Monday's blast off Diamondbacks starter Randy Johnson came one day after he reached 1,500 hits for his career.

                      Monday's two RBIs leave him nine shy of becoming the third player in major league history to reach 100 RBIs in his first eight seasons. He would join Ted Williams and Al Simmons in select company while moving past Joe DiMaggio. Pujols is also hitting .519 (28 for 54) in his last 14 games.

                          Three off the 40 man?

                          So that's Uncle Rico and who else?

                          EDIT: Izzy would be two. Duncan the third?

                              Thought they might give Hoffpauir a look-see, but I guess not.
