I Think Tony's Annoyed

Ok, the Brewers had to give up a real prospect to get CC Sabathia. The Cubs, however, pretty much gave a mess of pottage for Rich Harden. And although Harden could break down again at any moment, right now Tony La Russa's looking at Carpenter, Wainwright, Clement, and Mulder who all appear unable to pitch, so a starter who might break down is looking pretty good to him, I suspect.

Thus, Tony threw Mulder out to start tonight against the Phillies saying, "Who better? If you've got a better choice, let me know."

Mulder lasted 16 pitches and three batters (one strikeout, two walks) before leaving with shoulder pain in a game the Cards lost 4-2.

I think Tony's saying in a none too subtle way to his GM, get me a pitcher.
