St. Louis Cardinals Notes, Quotes 2008-07-10
--General manager John Mozeliak said, "We don't want to position ourselves where there's a knee-jerk reaction" to the big-name pitching acquisitions made by Chicago and Milwaukee, the Cardinals' two competitors in the National League Central Division.

Mozeliak said the club still would be searching for left-handed relief help immediately but would want to buy a little time to see how RHPs Adam Wainwright and Chris Carpenter respond. Wainwright (sprained right middle finger) and Carpenter (elbow surgery) are throwing. Both could be ready by early August.

--LHP Randy Flores, on a minor league rehabilitation assignment as he recovers from tendinitis in his left ankle, worked a scoreless inning Tuesday for Class AAA Memphis in his first appearance.

--3B Troy Glaus, after lining out twice with runners on base to end innings, blooped a run-scoring single in the seventh to end an 0-for-21 slide.

--Backup C Jason LaRue had a strong game with a single and a double, and he threw out a runner trying to steal.

BY THE NUMBERS: 300 -- Homers for 1B Albert Pujols after he hit his 18th of the season July 4. Pujols, at 28, was the fifth fastest in history to get to 300.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "I definitely believe after what he said we should respect it and just ignore him." -- Manager Tony La Russa, on CF Jim Edmonds' return to Busch Stadium as a Chicago Cub. La Russa was disappointed in some things he thought Edmonds said as Edmonds tried to stress he was a Cub now, and not a Cardinal.
