Like the line up tonight.Heyward hitting 8th is probably good, Maybe take some pressure off.Grichuk hitting 5th behind red hot Jhonny P. Tonight will be a late one here on the east coast.Will have to check the final in the morning.Go Cards!!

Close game but the Cards won, with the help a coupla’ Dodger errors. May not be so lucky tonite. Martinez with an impressive 11 strike-outs. J Peralta has been the Cards’ “Steady Eddy”. Grichuk wiffs, but it seems he runs hot & cold every other game. Jaime G on the mound tonite. Fingers crossed, especially since he’s up against fellow-lefty, Kershaw.

Why has no one pointed out that Oscar Travers was drunk and driving or am I wrong? How can you honor someone who killed another person and their self?

It has been pointed out and it was a tragic mistake by a young man who happened to take,along with his own, a other young women’s life. I see where you’re going with the above statement, so I have just one question.What color do you paint your glass house?
