Carpenter Hurt Again

Carpenter seems to have pulled a muscle in his rib cage and will most likely miss his start this weekend at Wrigley. Unlike most Cubs fans, I like beating the best, more than I like picking on the weak. Personally I think that the Cardinals are run by some of the smartest people in baseball. I don't like any of them, but they know what they are doing down there on the mighty Mississippi. 

I have the MLB package, and based on my girlfriend's mood, I watch as much as I can. I pay attention to the Brewers and the Cardinals more than others, but definitely try and catch anything that Vin Scully does. The Cardinals are smoke and mirrors. They know how and when to pitch to what batters. They do not make decisions based on anger or emotion (LOU!), and they are well coached and do the little things perfect or they do not play. I am completely certain that whoever takes Carpenter's spot will pitch out of his mind; Dave Duncan will make sure of it. This team is going to more with less talent this year than any other team in baseball, only because it is demanded of them and nothing less is accepted. I give to you Exhibit A. As I write this little Fanpost, Yadier Molina stole second (yes, stole second), was advanced to third on a properly hit ball by Skip Schumaker, and driven in by some schmuck I have never head of. Like robots.
