Just as the Bucs come off a great series, sweeping the Cubs (including an 11-1 blowout), they draw Poo Holes and the National League's best team in the Cardinals. I'd be happy with one win in this series, as the Cards are a very tough team to beat, but winning the series would of course be great.

Last year, the Bucs were 5-10 against the Redbirds, including a 4-game Opening Series split in St. Louis.  I expect the Bucs will be a little better against them this year, but it will definitely be a tough battle.

Expected Pitching Matchups

May 7: Zach Duke (2-3-1) vs. Chris Carpenter (4-0-2)
May 8: Jeff Karstens (0-1-1) vs. Jaime Garcia (3-1-1)
May 9: Paul Maholm (2-2-2) vs. Adam Wainwright (4-1-1)

3-A. Pujols 1B
4-M Holliday LF
5-D. Freese 3B
6-Y. Molina C
