the astros' lineup is very similar to the cardinals' --- it has 4 good hitters (berkman lee tejada and pence) and 4 replacement-level guys (bourn towles matsui and whoever players 3d base). they outscore our team by 1/4 run a game, largely by virtue of the ballpark the play in.
looper has a career record of 18-7, 3.45 at busch III. at home this year, he has 4 quality starts in 6 tries; on the road he has 0 q.s. in 4 starts.
