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.

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.

ST. LOUIS - The fifth start of Aaron Harang's tenure with the Phillies was marred by the fifth inning. The St. Louis Cardinals tagged him Wednesday night for four runs in the frame, matching the total the veteran righthander had surrendered over his first 261/3 innings in red pinstripes. Harang lasted six innings in a 5-2 loss, but the five runs he allowed snapped his streak of eight consecutive quality starts dating to last season. The defeat guaranteed that the Phillies (8-14)

ST. LOUIS - The fluid state of the Phillies' starting rotation should create a slew of openings this season. A lack of depth, injuries, and potential trades could lead to opportunities for several members of the triple-A rotation. The first two factors led the Phillies in their 21st game to use their seventh starting pitcher already. Severino Gonzalez's turn to pitch proved brief Tuesday night in an 11-5 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals. Gonzalez was shelled in his major-league debut as the night amounted essentially to what the Phillies called up the pitcher to avoid: a bullpen game.

ST. LOUIS - The first month of what might be Cole Hamels' last season in a Phillies uniform is over and the pitcher has come through unscathed and, per usual, unlucky. Hamels had given the Phillies innings and a chance to win seemingly every time he'd touched the baseball. In return, he'd gotten next to nothing: a measly six runs in four starts. Lady Luck finally arrived for the former World Series MVP - and at least for one of the Phillies hard-luck hitters, too - in Hamels' fifth and final start of April last night.

ST. LOUIS - Cole Hamels trotted out to the Busch Stadium mound shortly after 9 p.m. local time Monday. The bottom of the seventh inning signified just the second time this season the 31-year-old lefthander toed the rubber with a lead. A three-run top of the seventh in the Phillies' 4-1 win matched the team's combined run support for its ace over his first four starts. Hamels' win was his first in seven outings dating to last season. It came against the Cardinals on the same day the St. Louis ball club officially lost ace Adam Wainwright for the rest of the season.

The season-ending Achilles injury to Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright could lead St. Louis to enter the Cole Hamels sweepstakes. Here are five prospects in the Cards' farm system the Phillies could target in a potential deal for their ace lefthander: LHP Marco Gonzales: The Cardinals would be more than reluctant to part with Gonzales. The 23-year-old lefthander with a touted change-up was the team's 19th overall draft pick two Junes ago and is already major-league ready. If he weren't on the seven-day disabled list, he might start against the Phillies on Thursday in Wainwright's place.

A Phila. state of mind None of the mayoral candidates seems to be thinking out of the box; instead, they're recycling old ideas. Of fresh alternatives I can imagine, my personal favorite would be that Philadelphia secedes and becomes its own state. Think of not having to deal with Harrisburg legislators, most of whom hate us anyway and barely fund us; and of being able to pass our own gun laws with no bowing to the gun lobbies. But the best is that we'd get to retain all city revenue.
