Chris Perez just picked-up a five-out save in a 9-6 win over the Dodgers. Made it looked relatively easy too. Struck-out two, walked one, no hits allowed. It's nice to not have too much drama at the end of the game for once. Shouldn't read too much into this mind you, Perez was the only guy in the bullpen not used last night, so he may have been the closer by default today. Pineiro wasn't great today, but he did make it through seven, which allowed the other bullpen guys to take the night off. Pineiro may lose his job in 7-10 days when Wainwright comes back as he definitely looks like the weakest link it what may soon be a very strong rotation. The star of the game though, was of course Pujols who went 4-4 with a walk and a grand slam. Ludwick also homered in his FIFTH STRAIGHT GAME! Crazy. We go for the sweep tomorrow behind Lohse. It'd be nice if the Cubs and Brewers would lose and actually let us GAIN some ground for once.

Hey Trey and John,

Sorry to use this blog for non-blog purposes, but I have been trying to get a hold of John and have not been able to. I am going to be studying with him in Ireland this next year and needed some info from him. I am have been trying his email and phone number but neither are working. John, if you read this, could you contact me. Or Trey if you know of some way to get a hold of him, could you email me at Thanks. Good luck to the cards in the final stretch.
