I saw the wife of one of the St. Louis Cardinals' owners get struck with a foul ball during Saturday's game at Busch Stadium. To me, the surprising thing was not that something bad had happened to someone connected with the Cardinals, but that it didn't happen to Donovan Osborne. Thus far this season, the 27-year-old pitcher from Carson City, Nev., has nearly been killed in a car crash, has been tossed into jail, and has cut his finger on a champagne bottle during a Cardinal celebration.

The Florida Marlin season ticket-holders are so angered by their 1997 World Series champion's payroll purge, they are taking the team to court. Two separate class-action lawsuits were filed Monday--the first day court was open after Friday night's seven-player trade with the Dodgers that left Florida's roster with few of last year's players.

The St. Louis Cardinals never got a chance to work on Brian Williams' confidence Thursday night. After experiencing some tense moments in a three-game losing streak earlier this season, Williams was steady with a five-hitter over eight innings, leading the Astros to a 5-1 victory at the Astrodome. "My confidence was down after that three-game losing streak, but now I'm not going to let things bother me," Williams said. "Every time they tried to get something started, I came up with a good pitch."
