Cards/Phillies Sunday Night

Former first-round draft pick Jake Westbrook tries to make it two straight pitching gems on Sunday when he and the St. Louis Cardinals visit Citizens Bank Park to wrap up a four-game series with the Philadelphia Phillies. The 21st overall pick of the Colorado Rockies way back in 1996, Westbrook has 99 victories in a big-league career that began when he debuted with the New York Yankees in 2000. He won a career-high 15 games with the Cleveland Indians in both 2005 and 2006, then won 13 with the Cardinals while posting a 3.97 earned run average in 174 2/3 innings.

I have been behind the microphone for 10 years now. In the course of time, I have covered many elections and have seen first-hand how bruising and hurtful campaigns can be to people. None have been as difficult to watch, however, as the annexation battle in Washington--which pitted good people who care about their community against good people who care about their community.
