Roy Oswalt is pitching, so that means no J.R. Towles... honestly, with the way Towles has been hitting, Ausmus seems like an offensive upgrade. Cooper is still running Bourn out in the lead off spot... not sure how much longer that will(or should) continue to happen. In my opinion, he should be batting 7th or 8th in the lineup until he turns this around. Cecil Cooper today on the radio said that he wants Bourn to put the ball on the ground more often and start bunting more... Me as well.Cubs have already lost today, so the Astros have a chance to move up a game on them into 2nd place. The Cardinals play the Rockies at 7:35 PM CDT.
