The Cardinals patchwork lineup

by Bob Timmermann

Borrowing from the Yankees lineup of dates and inspired by the injury to Albert Pujols yesterday, Tony La Russa has this lineup for today's game against the Cubs

Eckstein, SS
Taguchi, CF
Rolen, 3B
Edmonds, 1B
Encarnacion, RF
Timo Perez, LF
Bennett, C
Luna, 2B
Marquis, P

Of course, the Cubs have Juan Pierre and Tony Womack batting 1-2, so there may not be much offense. Greg Maddux pitches for the Cubs today.

Edmonds has been reported to be headed to the disabled list also with a sports hernia, but apparently he's feeling well enough to play first. It's not like he has to stretch there. Edmonds has played first base before in his career.

Chris Duncan was recalled from Memphis to replace Pujols on the roster. I believe this is a downgrade.

I'd say Harvey Haddix needs to start watching his back but there's no way Maddux and/or Marquis go 14 innings unless they average like 5-6 pitch innings the ENTIRE GAME...
