Once, there may have been no job in America that Lee Thomas would rather have had than general manager of the St. Louis Cardinals. But that was nearly a decade ago - in a very different time, before Thomas ever left the Cardinals to become general manager of the Phillies. Yesterday, however, Lee Thomas' onetime dream job opened up again when the Cardinals fired Dal Maxvill after nine years as GM. And one of the first names to pop to the top of the rumor circuit, naturally, was that of James Leroy Thomas.

Recent history: The Eagles lost to the Cardinals, 27-21 on Dec. 24, 2005, in Phoenix. The Eagles lead the series between the franchises, 53-54-5. OFFENSE Eagles: 349.5 yards per game (9th) Cardinals: 390.7 yards per game (2nd) Quarterback Eagles: Andy Reid tried to kick-start the offense in the second half Sunday by benching struggling Donovan McNabb and going with Kevin Kolb. But that didn't work, and now he's going back to McNabb, who has turned the ball over seven times in the last six quarters and has a miserable .526 completion percentage in the last 5 games.

Cardinal Dougherty used a stifling zone defense to hold visiting Archbishop Wood to 22 points in three quarters en route to a 59-38 Catholic League Northern Division victory yesterday. The Cardinals (3-0 league, 9-3 overall) used a 9-point first quarter performance by forward Tony Fleming to take a 17-7 lead. The Cardinals extended their lead to 34-17 at halftime. Fleming led the Cardinals with 13 points, while guard Bob Coppolino added 11. Center Rodger Tabb had 10. Center Ray Schultz paced Wood (0-4, 3-10)

By most standards, the Eagles have one of the most effective defenses in the NFL. The numbers are telling - third in the league in total defense, first in the NFC. In the postseason, the Birds are first against the pass. That sets up interesting matches in Sunday's NFC Championship Game between Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald against Eagles corners Sheldon Brown and Asante Samuel. Both Brown and Samuel are 5-10. Fitzgerald is 6-3. With Anquan Boldin out against Carolina last Saturday and questionable this week because of a hamstring injury, Fitzgerald likely will be the main focus of the Eagles' defense.

St. Louis isn't out of the National League East hunt yet. The Cardinals picked up a game on the division-leading Cubs yesterday and, with a little help from the Phillies, could gain another game by the time tonight is over. Going into today, the second-place Cards trailed the first-place Cubs by four games. If the Phils beat the Cubs at Wrigley Field this afternoon, that lead will be reduced by a half-game. The Cardinals could then come to within three games with a win over the visiting Mets tonight.

He faced them once last season, allowing two runs in seven innings of a 7-2 win at Citizens Bank Park.

The Phillies will use the final 32 games to find solutions, and they must know every revelation cannot be franchise-altering. A team on pace for 90 losses will improve in slow (sometimes painful) increments. That elevates a 32-year-old waiver claim with three quality starts against three contenders to exalted status. This summer, two of the worst teams in baseball jettisoned Jerome Williams. He has carved a successful home in the Phillies rotation, with eight more innings in a 7-1 win over St. Louis as the latest evidence.

Ryne Sandberg tried everything, but even using every single position player and each reliever wasn't enough to hold off the St. Louis Cardinals. Matt Carpenter's 12th inning sacrifice fly was the difference during Saturday's 6-5 loss to the Cardinals at Citizens Bank Park. Sandberg was managing this like it was the seventh game of the World Series. For instance Chase Utley started at second moved to first and went back to second. It was his first time at first base since May 6, 2008.

Initially, it looked like the same old story, with Kyle Kendrick once again having the first-inning blues, but the Phillies righthander showed some true fight. There couldn't have been many believers at Citizens Bank Park when Kendrick allowed three runs before his teammates got to face one of the best pitchers in baseball. Yet Kendrick showed some grit while St. Louis Cardinals righthander Adam Wainwright scuffled uncharacteristically through six laborious innings. The Cardinals ace couldn't hold the lead while Kendrick regrouped during the Phillies' 5-4 win on Friday.

When the Eagles hired Bill Davis, the immediate impulse was to check his record as a defensive coordinator. It was not promising. At two previous stops, Davis' defenses never stood among the best in the NFL, never were more than middling in major statistics, and mostly ranked near the bottom. There was obvious concern that the offensive- and special-teams-minded Chip Kelly had chosen the wrong man to head the side of the ball he spends the least amount of time directing. A year later, Davis appears to have quelled some of the initial fears that were compounded by a slow start last season.

Recent Delsea grad Bryan Dobzanski was intent on attending the University of Louisville on a baseball scholarship until the St. Louis Cardinals made him an offer he couldn't refuse. A 29th-round draft choice of St. Louis earlier this month, the hard-throwing righthander said Tuesday night that he would sign with the Cardinals on Thursday in Florida. The slot value for all draft choices selected after the 10th round is $100,000, but Dobzanski said he would be signing for considerably more.

ST. LOUIS - It was a successful trip that ended on a sour note. Make that two sour notes. The Phillies won their first five games on the trip, but they dropped the last two, including Sunday's 5-3 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium. A week ago, the Phillies appeared buried after a 3-0 loss to the Chicago Cubs left them 61/2 games out of first place. They did gain ground on the trip that began with a three-game sweep in Atlanta, but not enough to really know if they are going to be buyers or sellers by the July 31 trade deadline.

"Sha-la-la-la-la-la, live for today And don't worry 'bout tomorrow"   - "Let's Live for Today," The Grass Roots AH, WHAT THE hell . . . Go for it. I mean, I'd love to believe the Phillies could flip some of their veterans in the next month and get some future stars. But I don't. They could deal Cliff Lee or Cole Hamels, or even Chase Utley, but I've seen the fruits of the first Cliff Lee deal and the second Hunter Pence deal and well, this administration has fared much better trading for veteran stars than dealing them.

ST. LOUIS - Cole Hamels was pitching - and hitting - adeptly, but his work on the mound was not enough to keep the Phillies' road roll going. Afterward, Hamels had nothing to say about his performance at the plate or on the mound. On this steamy day in St. Louis, the Phillies ace finally met his match in St. Louis Cardinals righthander Adam Wainwright. Mixing speeds and working both sides of the plate, Wainwright went eight strong innings during Saturday's 4-1 win over the Phillies before 44,789 at sold-out Busch Stadium.

ST. LOUIS - For Ryan Howard, there really is no place like home. Howard, who hails from St. Louis, has destroyed Cardinals pitching throughout his career. As the Phillies began a four-game series Thursday at Busch Stadium, Howard acknowledged that it has special meaning to play his hometown team. "This is where it all began for me," Howard said before the game. "There are just a lot of memories, seeing friends and family and stuff like that, and it is always a very good, relaxing feeling to come home.

ST. LOUIS - Cody Asche's mom dropped him off at his baseball game yesterday afternoon. That's one of the perks a St. Louis-area native enjoys when he is a professional ballplayer in town to face the Cardinals. For Asche, though, the most important perk is the one that seems likely to happen today, when the Phillies activate him after nearly a month on the disabled list with a hamstring strain. "The main thing is just getting healthy," he said. Asche says he is fully recovered from the hamstring strain and just waiting for the Phillies to make his comeback official.
