Tony La Russa, Esq., has announced his Game 4 lineup against the Phillies and Roy Oswalt, and there's a highly welcome addition. See if you can spot him, somewhere around the middle!
Yes, it's Matt Holliday, whose finger injury has heretofore limited him to a (successful) pinch-hitting appearance in Game 3. He's been injected with a numbing agent, and says he's "good enough" to play tonight.
Holliday replaces Allen Craig, who's had a great season but obviously isn't the equal of Holliday as a hitter. A healthy Holliday, anyway. It's certainly possible that the right-now Allen Craig is better than the right-now Matt Holliday, but presumably the Cardinals know more about Holliday's right-now than we do.
Prediction, Holliday will get a shot against Brad Lidge at some point, numbing agent y slider.
First pitch at 6:07 Eastern Daylight Time, and later in other parts of the world.
