What a big game tonight for Jake Westbrook. Outdueling Cliff Lee and giving the Cards a much needed win following the sweep in Cincinnati.

Nice to see Fernando Salas pitch a 1-2-3 ninth inning with no drama, too.

How weird was it to watch Albert at third base, though?

Hopefully Garcia can keep it rolling tomorrow.

Yep! Teh team needed the victory!

Lee was his own worst enemy last night - giving up 6 walks?

Albert is premiering for those teams that need a third baseman and are willing to listen to his ridiculous demands! :-/ Can you tell I'm grumpy about him?

Sounds like Tony might play him at third a little more in the coming days. I think it's risky with his elbow, but I think it improves us defensively to get Lance to first and put Jay in RF.

I agree about his elbow - is that something they really want to mess with?

Personally, I don't think I would. Like I said, I like opening up an OF slot for Craig or Jay to get some ABs, but I think too much can go wrong with AP at third base.

How about Garcia? He was well on his way to another W if Greene doesn't mess up that play in the 8th. Even so, another outstanding performance for Jaime.

I'm with you but then I'm not writing his paychecks........thank God!

So many people were concerned that Jaime would have a sophomore slump and I'm just thrilled with the way he's pitching!
