06/09/2006 Cardinals (Mulder) @ Brewers (de la Rosa) 7:05 PM


St. Louis Cardinals


Mark Mulder - (5-4, 4.71)



Mulder's Splits vs. Milwaukee


Mulder finds himself in a slump, having allowed eight runs in each of his past two outings. He urgently needs to practice better damage control. In both of those snowman starts, Mulder has been unable to stop the bleeding, watching innings spiral out of hand. If he can minimize damage when he gets in trouble, he'll be much more successful.

Milwaukee Brewers


Jorge de la Rosa - (2-2, 7.90)



de la Rosa's Splits vs. St. Louis


In De La Rosa's second start after being moved into the starting rotation, he fared better than his first outing. In 5 2/3 innings, the lefty was charged with five runs -- three came on Alfonso Soriano's grand slam off reliever Joe Winkelsas -- while striking out three and walking four. De La Rosa broke a finger nail in his first outing at Pittsburgh, but said it wasn't a big problem on Sunday and should be fine for the next time he pitches. (MLB.com)

Billy could be feasting tonight over a struggling left hander. Would be nice to see Hart in the lineup as well, but that'll never happen. Maybe Rillo playing third.

If the Brewer hitters try to pull everything against Mark Mulder, I am going to be very angry tonight. They have to think about hitting to the opposite field. Mulder induces lots of double plays by getting hitters to roll over on offspeed pitches over the outside half of the plate.


Time to make adjustments. Wynegar has got to keep on these guys tonight.

Is the Cardinals plan to put out one of the worst lineups in baseball and still kill the Brewers? They do it all the time against them, and tonight is no different....Scott Rolen and a bunch of crap. Hopefully the outcome is. De La Rosa has another opportunity to solidify himself, hope he takes advantage of it.

It seems that way because the Brewers have had a lot of lefties and Edmonds doesn't start against lefties. Edmonds and Walker didn't last year.

Its nice to see Ned finally move Jenkins down in the lineup.


This move is eerily similar to last year when Jenkins was going through that terrible slump and Ned finally moved him to the 7 spot. Jenkins then proceeded to heat up and was a force in our lineup the rest of the year. Hopefully we'll see more of the same this time.

7th hole. Why is Jenkins still on the team?? My God, Corey Hart ought to start the final 100 games or so. In fact, I can't wait for the day that Clark, Gross, and Hart all start in the outfield. Oh what a fierce line-up we'll have.

Jorge just screams Teddy Higuera in his prime when he's on like that. It's just getting him to be on like that consistently that's the problem.


And count me in as someone that thought Scott Spiezio retired like 3 years ago...
