TEX @ STL (Cardinals lead 1-0)
8:05pm, Busch Stadium
As JCH mentioned earlier today in his interview with Johnny Bench - the first-ever (I'm pretty sure) interview of a Reds Hall of Famer this site - Tim Wisecup of Columbus will be throwing out tonight's first pitch. Johnny Bench will be his ceremonial battery mate.
As for the game itself, there's almost an air of inevitability in my mind in re: the Cardinals. Both of these teams seem to know their roles a little too well, especially with the Rangers playing runners up last season. Someone - or someTHING - will have to disrupt dramaturgical forces working in favor of the Cardinals.
