Tough assignment for the Birds this weekend. The Cards will face Lincecum, Zito and Cain over the weekend. None of those are going to be easy, but I feel good about our matching up with Garcia, Waino and Penny. Promises to be a tough and well pitched series.

It will be interesting to see how the Giant killer Garcia does. He has been matched up with some of the better pitchers in the NL in all of his starts. First he badly outpitched Yovani Gallardo to get his first W, then he out-performed Johan Santana in the early stages of the 20 inning marathon last Saturday. Now he gets matched up with the two-time Cy Young winner. (Although everyone on this site knows he didn't deserve it last year :o). Someday maybe he'll get to pitch against someone that is not a #1 starter.

Let's hope Ludwick and Rasmus can keep pounding the baseball and Albert gets out of his mini-funk and the Birds can take their sixth straight series.
