I am expecting the offense to explode this afternoon in this one.  I am going to pull a Pugs and call this one 9-2 in favor of the El Birdos.

You took the words right out of my mouth, Rat. If one watches enough baseball over the years, you run across a handful of games each season where you can predict with not 99% certainty, but 100% of how a particular game is going to play out. This is most certainly one of those games. I love that 9-2 Cards score that the esteemed Rat has picked. So much so that I don't know if I can vary from it? The Cards WILL score at least 8 runs in their 8 at bats today....so I'll call this laugher 10-3 Birds with Matt Carpenter depositing a long one into the cheap seats.

Carpenter   2B
Jay    CF
Holliday  LF
Beltran   RF
Molina  C
Adams   1B
Freese   3B
Descalso   SS
Miller  P


Why does Matheny keep playing Descalso at SS?  I swear if there were a prize for stubborness, he would win it hands down.

I not sure I would call it being stubborn, more likely just stupid.

Don't get started on Matheny....I am really puzzled by some of his moves lately. But playing Descalso is a the top of the list.

I'd be more worried if every Matheny move was universally lauded by the fans.

Descalso has a -13 UZR and -14 DRS in 600 innings at SS.  I know the FO has number crunchers who know this.  Doesn't this information ever get to the manager?  If so, is he just ignoring it?  You have to wonder at the source of Matheny's love affair with Descalso at this position.  If he just wants Descalso in the lineup, then play him at 3B.  He's not so terrible there.

I agree and Freese looks like he needs a day off.
