Cards vs. Mets

Let's actually take one from them today! I'm hopeful that Gold Glove center fielder Jimmy Edmonds starts today. We could really use his bat.

Jason Marquis (13-11, 5.70) takes the mound against former Red Dave Williams (2-3, 6.90)

Here's some trivia, only three opening day starters started yesterday (Molina, Rolen, Pujols).

The bullpen is 16-16 with a 4.03 ERA with 33 saves in 48 opportunities.

For those of you that are not in the FSN Midwest viewing area, you can watch the game on ESPN2.

Ronnie Belliard, 2B
So Taguchi, LF
Albert Pujols, 1B
Scott Rolen, 3B
Juan Encarnacion, CF

Jose Reyes, SS
Paul LoDuca, C
Carlos Beltran, CF
Carlos Delgado, 1B
David Wright, 3B
Shawn Green, RF
Jose Valentin, 2B
Endy Chavez, LF

Milestone Watch:
Albert Pujols needs 16 home runs to tie Ken Boyer for 2nd on the Cardinals all-time home runs list with 255.
Albert Pujols needs 7 runs to have his sixth consecutive season with 100 runs, 100 RBI, 30 home runs, and at least a .300 batting average.
Jim Edmonds needs 1 home run to pass Ray Lankford for 4th all-time as a Cardinal.
Jason Isringhausen needs 4 saves for 250 career saves.
