If you read the comments in that story, the fans in St. Louis seem to think it'll be alot longer than that.
If I was Tony LaRussa, I'd be in a back room somewhere talking to my GM and figuring out how to get more pitching kinda quickly.
I know they don't want to spend money in St. Louis, but this is a pretty serious gut punch so early in the season, and there's pitching out there.
If Carpenter's really down for awhile and the Padres end up sucking, of course Jake Peavy's name could come up which would make me crazy.
Anyway, the Cards come to town tomorrow at 1:20.
This is my favorite rivalry in all sports.
It'll be Sean Marshall in his starting debut vs. Adam Wainwright, who's 1-0.
The Cards called up a guy named PJ Walters to pitch on Friday to "protect a spent bullpen" - I guess they got used up in Arizona while the Cards won the series 2 games to 1.
You can read about their pitching plans for the weekend here.
Do you want to talk about Jason Marquis?
Didn't think so.
Lets just look ahead to a fabulous weekend of baseball.
ps: if you didn't know this already, Chicago has it's own online ESPN called ESPN CHICAGO. It's like real ESPN, only they just cover Chicago teams. Go here and look around. It's so awesome. There's even a Chicago version of Sports Center!
