I knew there was a reason to let Kenny Rogers come to the All-Star Game. About 450 feet worth of reasons.
Three batters, an ERA and WHIP of infinity.
I notice that Derrek Lee is still in the game too. Now I know Tony La Russa wants to win and Lee is one of the two best players in the NL so far this year, but gee -- Lee plays for the Cubs, the team closest (and that's a relative term) to the Cardinals in the standings. Now I know Terry Francona joked about using Mariano Rivera for three innings tonight because the Red Sox and Yankees start the second half with four games against one another starting Thursday, but why does it seem like La Russa might say something similar, only without a chuckle?
