the cards catch a break tonight, missing a left-hander (jo-jo reyes) who has pitched well against them in the past. he was supposed to go tonight, but the braves had to use reyes in relief over the weekend; in his stead they'll start charlie morton, a young right-hander with so-so control . . . good opportunity for the cardinals to score some runs if they can exhibit some patience.
derrick goold reports that mozeliak and luhnow are both with the team down in atlanta as the trade deadline approaches. the season is 2/3 over with after tonight.
