What’s there more to be nervous about tonight, Oliver Perez or Billy Wagner?
Perez is going on three days rest, and Wagner has been hit twice in this series. I know it’s the ninth, but the key is taking control early and that’s where Perez comes in. The Perez-Jeff Suppan match-up favors the Cardinals, and there’s a good chance the tone of the game will be decided in the first three innings.
