4/10 Game Thread: Brewers (5-1) at Cardinals (3-3)

New, 201 comments

Once upon a time, about a decade ago, I had been to nearly every current Major League stadium. That was before the latest wave of construction: seems like every year, there's a new couple parks to put on my to-do list. The new Busch Stadium is just the latest to go on that list.

Strange as it sounds, I like today is a pretty even matchup. Ohka was great last time out. Mulder did okay, 3 runs in 7 IP, but only struck out one. Interesting fact to remember while watching today's game: Ohka's career ERA+ is 114 and Mulder's is 116. Something tells me Mulder will get a bit more money this winter. He is, after all, a whole 16 months younger.

While you wait for the game to begin, you must check out this re-enactment of the 1986 World Series.
