Sure, our chances of making the playoffs may be at .1%, but we've got the Cards right in front of us. Brian Moehler, the recipient of a new contract makes his 21st start of the season. Opposing him has been the surprising Braden Looper, who hopes to cash in on an even more impressive 2008 than Moehler has had. The Cardinals may be short on talent compared to most playoff contenders, but rest assured, this team won't do anything to beat themselves...oh wait, they did exactly that last night (thank you, Mr. Glaus). Don't expect that again tonight, however. This is a team that isn't just trying to win as many as they can. St. Louis still has an outside shot at the post season, so their best effort should be forthcoming tonight.
