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.

What will the future hold for the Class of 2015? Time will tell.

My youngest has now graduated from high school. Back in 1980, I was the youngest of my family who graduated.
