The idea that anybody can play baseball directly after yanking an oblique is just silly.
Even if you're Yadier Molina.
Even if Mike Matheny is kind of talking like he might.
A.J. Pierzynksy is saying he hasn't been told that he's playing, but John Lackey is starting tonight.
Pierzynsky caught Lackey in Boston and in St. Louis, so come on dude - of course he's going to be the catcher tonight.
And even though A.J. has the worst press and reputation of almost any player, it would be so Cardinal-like if he turned out to be the hero of game 3.
I go back to July 1, 2006, Cubs vs White Sox, 2 on 2 out, Dempster was the closer.
Pierzynski hits a 3 run homer, the Sox take the lead and the Cubs lose.
Just a HORRIBLE game.
Anyway, must watch baseball.
