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.

THE BOOS rained down from a good portion of the 30,000 fans in attendance when manager Ryne Sandberg emerged from the Phillies' dugout with his lineup card in hand and two outs in the sixth inning. The Phillies were ahead by four runs, for the first time since May 23, no less, but the faithful let the much-maligned manager hear it. They wanted 25-year-old lefthander Adam Morgan to have a chance to get out of a jam in his first major league appearance, but Sandberg had other ideas.

The team with baseball's worst record has been dealt some embarrassing defeats lately, most notably losing by 16 runs Tuesday, but also by eight and nine, respectively, Friday and Saturday. For at least one afternoon, the Phillies experienced the feel of a blowout win. "It was nice to be on the other end of it for once," Cody Asche said after Sunday's 9-2 Phillies' win against baseball's best team, the St. Louis Cardinals, at Citizens Bank Park. "We've taken some pretty big losses here the last five or six games.

A MEDIUM-SIZED rodent - perhaps about the size of the pitching rubber - deftly scaled the screen behind home plate in the second inning of last night's game between the Phillies and St. Louis Cardinals. It distracted everyone on the field and in the stands, which wasn't the worst thing in the world. The people, after all, came to be entertained. The Citizens Bank Park Squirrel, no relation to the 2011 NLDS Busch Stadium Squirrel, according to a baseball source, didn't stop with his high-wire act. With a hop, skip and a jump, our hero was suddenly dancing on the dugout.

The latest player to hit the Phillies' starting rotation didn't do so with the utmost confidence. Righthander Phillippe Aumont has always had the strongest of arms, but he conceded his biggest downfall has come between the ears. As for between the white lines, the St. Louis Cardinals pounded Aumont for six runs in four innings during Friday's 12-4 romp over the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park. "It has to be between the ears; I have done it plenty of times, physically," Aumont said.

WHAT IN THE name of Hack Wilson is going on? According to a New York Times report, the St. Louis Cardinals have allegedly taken stealing to a new level. The Times reported yesterday that the FBI and Justice Department are investigating whether Cardinals officials hacked into the Houston Astros' computer network to pilfer personnel database information. In sports, the only men in black used to be umpires. Now they're federal agents who investigate FIFA honchos one week and baseball officials the next.

A cyber-school principal has been hired to head Cardinal O'Hara High School, whose former principal - abruptly fired in November 2013 - recently settled a lawsuit with the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. Eileen Vice, an alumna of O'Hara who has worked at 21st Century Cyber Charter School in Downingtown since 2004, will replace Pete Balzano, who took over after the archdiocese dismissed Marie Rogai without explanation. Vice will begin at the 1,300-student school July 1, the archdiocese said in a news release Wednesday.

ST. LOUIS - The final day of the worst April of Chase Utley's major-league career started and ended in the visitors dugout at Busch Stadium. The struggling second baseman was given a game off Thursday afternoon in the Phillies' 9-3 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals. Utley is in a 3-for-45 slump since his two-homer performance against the Mets. His month went into the books with a woeful .114 batting average. That ranks dead last among 182 qualified major-league hitters. His .398 on-base-plus-slugging percentage ranks next to last.

ST. LOUIS - David Buchanan faced 21 batters Thursday in a 9-3 Phillies loss to the Cardinals, and 11 of them reached base. The second-year righthander left Busch Stadium with the worst rate of combined walks and hits per innings pitched (1.91) among 131 qualified major-league starters. "I want my team to win a game that I pitch in," he said. "I'm not looking at my record. I want my team to win when I pitch in a ball game. I don't care how it happens. [I'm] 0 for 5 right now. But I want my team to be confident when I take that mound.

ST. LOUIS - With pitching injuries becoming contagious to potential contending teams, and the Boston Red Sox rotation sporting the worst ERA in either league, the Cole Hamels' trade buzz returned to the baseball world this week. Given the need for pitching throughout major league baseball, and the scarcity of top-level pitching that's likely to be available, it would be more than mildly surprising if Cole Hamels is still in a Phillies uniform three months from today. But since there are few aces to be had this summer, the teams left standing when Hamels finds a seat in the trade deadline's musical chairs will have to look elsewhere.
