Cardinals At Dodgers Tonight

After a day off on Thursday, the Cardinals resume their three-city road trip tonight in Los Angeles. The Redbirds play the first of a three-game series against the Dodgers at Chavez Ravine. Lance Lynn goes after win number-seven as he opposes LA's Chris Capuano. The Cards opened the road swing by taking two-of-three in San Diego.

The Cardinals will run into old friend Skip Schumaker tonight. The former Cardinals utilityman is now part of the 200-milion-dollar-plus payroll of the Dodgers. He says their situation is not as bad as it seems. Noting that there's been a lot of heat from the media, Schumaker says the Dodgers will be okay once they get all their players back healthy.

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.
