For Cards, every ball park is on Elm Street

The next five days/games for the St. Louis Cardinals might just be the toughest they've faced this season when it comes to opponents' starting pitching.

Starting tonight in Cincinnati, the Cards bat against Edwin Volquez, but that's just a prelude to the meat of the nightmare.

Just wait until they get to Clark & Addison in Chicago. Zambrano, Lilly, Dempster. Wrigley Field may as well be Elm Street, with Freddy Krueger in the rotation.

And come Monday morning, the Cards get to wake up to the thought that they're in Arizona, and as they near Chase Field, the sinister laughing they hear coming from within is Brandon Webb warming up.
