Starring Roles

This truly bizarre baseball season just got nuttier, with the Zombie Cardinals falling behind 5-0 to the woeful Astros, before rallying to score 13 of the game's next 14 runs. Tomorrow will decide the Cardinals' fate - or possibly send them to a final tiebreaker on Thursday. Given how this season has gone, I expect nothing less (or more) than a 163rd game.

Here's some trade post cards from Play at the Plate to express my feelings, first starring Lance Berkman as the cagey Photoshopped vet who has every inch of Enron Field Minute Maid Park mapped out in his brain.

Starring: Yadier Molina as the team's batting leader! He's a Top Ten NL Batting Leader! Hey, don't look at me that way.

Starring: Allen Craig as Matt Holliday!

Also Starring: Colby Rasmus as the creepy, disappointing specter that still looms ominously over this season. He hasn't really done anything to suggest that he won't be terrible with Toronto, but many a Cardinal fan remains distraught over his exit.

... And Bud Smith as Ace McNohitter! Wait... ahh!! Bud Smith. Bad luck! Run away! Run awayyyyy!

I don't have to run away. I don't have the card anymore!
