Cards vs. Mets

Due to technical difficulties, I was unable to blog on Monday before going about 48 hours with no computer in accordance with Judaic law due to the Yom Tov days of Passover.

College basketball ended on Monday. Football ended in February. It's only appropriate that baseball season started this week and gives me something to look forward to each day.

The season starts with Josh Kinney, Mark Mulder, and Juan Encarnacion on the DL.

April 1, 2007
N.Y. Mets 6, St. Louis 1
Losing pitcher - Chris Carpenter (0-1)

April 3, 2007
N.Y. Mets 4, St. Louis 1
Losing pitcher - Kip Wells (0-1)
HR: Scott Rolen (1)

April 4, 2007
N.Y. Mets 10, St. Louis 0
Losing pitcher - Braden Looper (0-1)

Milestone watch:
Albert Pujols needs 5 home runs to tie Ken Boyer for 2nd on the Cardinals all-time home runs list with 255.
Jim Edmonds needs 10 games to reach 1,000 games played as a St. Louis Cardinal.
Adam Kennedy needs 38 hits for 1,000 career hits.
Scott Rolen needs 1 stolen base for 100 career stolen bases.
Russ Springer needs 3 strikeouts for 500 National League Strikeouts.
Jason Isringhausen needs 1 save for 250 saves as a St. Louis Cardinal.

Due to problems with his elbow, Chris Carpenter will miss his next scheduled start (Friday).

Talks with David Eckstein look stalled for the time being.

In some areas, you will be able to watch the St. Louis Cardinals on FSN South and Sports South.

After 572 relief appearances, Braden Looper will make his first start in the majors.
