Luddy trade somehow enhances offense

Okay, so the Redbirds have sent Luddy packing and have mounted some offense over the last couple of games. But that was Pittsburgh.

Today we'll see what's on the other side of Luddy's looking glass when Westbrook takes the mound.

And although the Cards face some Astros minus Berkman and Oswalt, they still need to grow into the consistent offense they've been utilizing lately. (The true offensive test comes in the balance of August when the Cards play some stiff competition.

A game at a time, however.
