« Topic Start: August 26, 2005, 04:56:05 PM »
Game Time: 7:05 PM


Jeff Suppan, RHP (12-9, 3.94)
Suppan lost in his last outing despite allowing only one earned run in six innings of work. Despite that setback to the Giants Sunday, he has won five of his last seven decisions. Suppan is 1-1 with a 3.38 ERA lifetime against the franchise formerly known as the Expos.


Esteban Loaiza, RHP (8-9, 3.66)
Loaiza pitched on short rest in his last start, but he went 6 1/3 innings and gave up three runs on seven hits against the Mets. All three runs were scored in the fifth inning, when pinch-hitter Mike Jacobs, making his Major League debut, hit a three-run home run.

Starting Lineups:
Code: [Select]
  St. Louis              Washington
1. David Eckstein, SS     Brad Wilkerson, LF
2. Larry Walker, RF       Jose Vidro, 2B
3. Albert Pujols, 1B      Nick Johnson, 1B
4. Jim Edmonds, CF        Jose Guillen, RF
5. Abraham O. Nunez, 3B   Preston Wilson, CF
6. So Taguchi, LF         Brian Schneider, C
7. Yadier Molina, C       Vinny Castilla, 3B
8. Hector Luna, 2B        Cristian Guzman, SS
9. Jeff Suppan, P         Esteban Loaiza, P

I've almost had enough with this team...no heart is ever shown or no fire...they were in a great position to get to the playoffs and they are playing there way out of it right now...The teams ahead of them are'nt winning it they are loosing it...2 of 3 from the Cards is a must or we are done

Getting out of the first St. Louis at-bat without giving up a run is big, IMO.  Yeah, there was a bit of a jam, but it was done.

Any more negativity to bring to the table?

Home run, Brad Wilkerson.  Now having a lead is even bigger.

Hey, if the Nats can get out of every inning while allowing one or two Cards to reach base, I'm all for that.

That's ok, you're almost invited to complain in any other forum of your choosing. If the only time you can show positive support, is when the team is winning, then I'd be happy to remove the *almost* in the invitation.

Kenz A Fan trust me I have stood by this team for all the great times and the horrible times ok I have loved this team since I can remeber I was with them when they were winning (1994) I was with them when they sucked badly (since 1994) I was with them when they didn;t have a home (new millenium) and I am with them now (2.5 games back) I just wish they cared half as much about the playoffs as I do

THANKS

It means, let's see some of your positive forces at work. Its not cool to dump a truckload of negativity and it sure aint fun to read.

Let's band together to send nothing but positive energy through the airwaves to RFK. But feel free to send any and all negativity you can towards the Cards. :wink:
