As we observed during the first week of the season, a billboard stating that Chris Carpenter (who has been on the DL since Spring Training) is "ready for an encore" might not be the best choice of words.

St. Louis Cardinals songs. It's something we've been fascinated with for years. Thanks to the help of Damon Oliver, the official DJ at Busch Stadium, we posted a synopsis of the actual songs being used by the Cardinals earlier this season.
