Redbird Randoms ... Probables: Padres series

Now that the All-Star break is just about over, and our All-Star representatives--Ryan Ludwick and Albert Pujols--have returned home, Cardinal Nation can look forward to an eight-game homestand.

The first series (four games) brings a west coast team into St. Louis, the San Diego Padres (37-58). The next series (four games) matches the Cardinals against some hard-nosed NL Central competitors, the Milwaukee Brewers.
