Looking at the Cards from a fan's perspective

It was top Cardinals pitching prospect Michael Wacha who drew the short straw Friday afternoon when starter Jake Westbrook was activated from the disabled list.

Wacha was sent to Class AAA Memphis where he will work in the starting rotation. Lefty Tyler Lyons will remain in St. Louis as a member of the starting rotation while Keith Butler will remain in the major league bullpen.
