Lineup Card: Rockies @ Cardinals

Jim Tracy is waving the white flag!  

Of course that actually makes sense since today is the final day of the season and a lot of his players seemingly waved the white flag the minute they boarded the plane to St. Louis.

Rockies Lineup (83-78)
  1. CF  Fowler
  2. 2B  Barmes
  3. C    McKenry
  4. 3B  Stewart
  5. 1B  Iannetta
  6. RF  Smith
  7. LF  Payton
  8. 2B  Nelson
  9. P    Rogers
A Rockies catcher hitting third?  Has that ever happened?  Barmes is back with the team and gets one last start for the Rockies at the position he came up playing.  Esmil Rogers gets a chance to impress.  Chris Iannetta gets a full game at 1B.  There are enough interesting things here to make the game worth paying attention to.  

Well, maybe not for you, but definitely enough for me.   

Cardinals Lineup (85-76)
  1. 2B  Schumaker
  2. RF  Winn
  3. 1B  Pujols
  4. LF  Holliday
  5. CF  Rasmus
  6. 3B  Descalso
  7. C    Pagnozzi
  8. SS  Ryan
  9. P    Suppan
LaRussa decides to go with most of the regulars in the home/season finale.  I almost feel like guaranteeing a Rockies win.  I won't though.
