Do we blame Shafnutz, or FC for letting Shafnutz handle things?

If Garrett Jones were a horse, he'd be humanely put down at this point. Yikes.

GFJ needs his butt on the bench for about a week.

GI Jones. The "GI" stands for "gastrointestinal."

What about CERV for attending batting practice?

On the bright side, the Cards have a 4 gamer against the hot Braves and 3 with Cincy. We get 4 against the lowly Giants and 3 with the sucky Brewers.

Unfortunately Marte has a right hand injury, Tabata has knee tendinitis, Lambo has to stay down in the minors for another 7 days unless someone goes to the DL, Presley has to stay down for another 4 days, and Snider just started his rehab. So, you're stuck with Jones unless you put Harrison in RF until someone gets healthy :(

I'd much rather see Harrison in RF at this point than watch Garrett Jones do anything.

If Jones was MIA that'd be an upgrade. He's currently sucking LOUDLY.

The Giants are coming off a 12-1 drubbing at the hands of the Red Sox. We all know what this means...

Pitching matchups this series:
Locke (9-4, 2.90)/Cain (8-8, 4.35)
Morton (4-3, 3.67)/Bumgarner (11-7, 2.82)
Liriano (14-5, 2.53)/Lincecum (6-13, 4.53)
Burnett (6-8, 3.09)/Vogelsong (2-4, 6.29)

I wish we would have faced Zito but he pitched yesterday.

Cain's overall numbers still aren't great but he's been strong in his last 5 starts: 2-2 with a 2.25 ERA and at least 7 IP in each. Vogelsong's pitching his 4th game since he's come off the DL and 2 of his 3 starts so far have been solid. Bumgarner's been good as well. I'll be happy if this team splits the 4 game set.

NO.

The Pirates will win 20-0.

This team ALWAYS brings their "A" game.

Just ask the cognizatti.
